    Are you driving? If yes check out NY and NJ laws for having a weapon in your vehicle.

    NJ even has a law against hollow point ammo. For safety sake you should try Fererals expnading hard nose.

    I would not go into NJ...cut across NY to PA and head south from there. Keep weapon locked in trunk during the trip until you get to KY which honors the CT permit. Note that crossing through NY (can't be avoided) requires only taking 10-round magazines.

    Yes, Tennessee honors your (and most other) state permits.

    Where is TN are you going to be? If you need some range time I can give you some names for places on the East end (Knoxville, etc)

    I'd double check driving thru NY as it may be illegal to have a gun anywhere in your car. NY is very strict.

    Here is the NYS Law...

    A non-resident citizen may possess a rifle or shotgun in New York, as long as it is unloaded while being transported. No person may carry, possess or transport a handgun in or through the state unless he has a valid New York license. New York does not issue licenses to non-residents nor does it recognize licenses issued by other states. (A provision of federal law provides a defense to state or local laws which would prohibit the passage of persons with firearms in interstate travel. If a person is traveling from any place where he may lawfully possess and transport a firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and transport such firearm and the firearm is unloaded and in the trunk. In vehicles without a trunk, the unloaded firearm shall be in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console. Necessary stops, e.g., gasoline and rest, seem permissible.) A member or coach of an accredited college or university target pistol team may transport a handgun into or through New York to participate in a collegiate, Olympic or target pistol shooting competition provided that the handgun is unloaded and carried in a locked carrying case and the ammunition is carried in a separate locked container. An alien may possess a rifle or shotgun for use while hunting provided he has a valid New York hunting license. "If such (handgun) license is issued to an alien, or to a person not a citizen of and usually a resident in the state, the licensing officer shall state in the license the particular reason for the issuance and the names of the persons certifying to the good character of the applicant." Non-resident target shooters may enter or pass through New York State with handguns for the purposes of any NRA approved competition if the competitor has in his possession a copy of the match program, proof of entry and a pistol license from his state of residence. The handgun must be unloaded and transported in a locked opaque container.

    No problem, just stay out of places (including resturants) that serve alcohol.

    Be prepared, once coming to Tennessee, you may find that you really like it here and may not want to leave. If so, that's OK. Just move here. It's really a great state and now with that moron Jimmy Nafie no longer the Speaker of the House, we should be able to get some really good pro-gun laws passed.

    TN honors all states permits. Just do not go in Schools, places where alcohol is served, and Gov buildings.
