Hello all! I'm retired now and one of the things I like to do is learn from others with similar interests through forums. This one seems to have a wealth of information and I just hope that I can provide a little in return.

Warm welcome to you from Texas.
Tennessee honors all other states Permit/Licenses.
Tennessee Honors Non-Resident Permits/Licenses From the States They Honor.
How to Apply for A Permit
How Do I Obtain a Handgun Carry Permit?
To obtain a handgun carry permit in Tennessee, you must first successfully complete a Handgun Safety
Course offered by a handgun safety school that is certified by the Department of Safety. Tennessee will now
accept two forms used by the Military which capture combat pistol training (CG-3029, DD-2586, DA-88-R
and AF-522). These forms can now be used to verify military handgun training.
You should then make application at any full service Driver Service Center. You will need to bring with
you the original copy of your safety course completion certificate, Proof of US Citizenship or Lawful
Permanent Residency, photo identification such as your Driver License, and $115 NON-REFUNDABLE
permit fee. This fee may be paid in cash, money order or with a certified check. If there are no problems with
the application and you meet all eligibility requirements, you should receive your permit within 90 days of
the date you submit your application.
