    CCW Instructor Recommendations in SE TN

    I am moving from NM to TN. I still have an active Virginia CCW which give me reciprocity. As I read the laws for TN and it appears to me that I will have to go through the complete course offerred by a TN instructor.

    Does anyone have recommendations for courses in southeast TN? Chattanooga is the closest metro area, but I am willing to drive further for the right training.

    I have always found retired LEO/SWAT instructors in the past and have greatly appreciated their approach.

    I also have a few family members intrerested in CCW who are willing to register and make up a small class for more private instruction.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    They're in TN, but not super-close, but you can hardly find better training than either of these people:

    Ahh, there is part of the reason that the Tennessee permit is tied for first place as the most valuable permit in terms of being traveler friendly.

    Here in West Tenn, there are always articles in the classifieds. I'd suggest seeking an online copy of your new area's newspaper. I'd look for you, but I have to split now.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I think Paul Castle at Sabre Tactical is a good way to go. He is in Nashville, and probably has a much larger curriculum than you're looking for. He'll teach you the Center Axis Reloc technique (cool), and he's got some great stories.

    There's a moderator here with the username "Tangle" who is located in that exact city. Maybe PM him for training ideas. He would know what's in your new AO.

    There is a place called Hero Gear in Winchester TN, not too far from your new AO that fits the bill
    Here's a link to their website

    Tiger comes with some fantastic recommendations. I'm eager to have the opportunity to travel and train there.
