Here in the Great state of Tennessee
to get a hand gun carry permit (does not indicate carry method or the word "concealed" so you can carry anyway you want) you have to fill out a form that says that you are not a nut, druggy or fugtive from the law, show proof of safety training, get finger printed and pay $115 and in 2 -3 weeks you are cocked locked and good to go. If you stay out of bars, places that are posted and schools you can carry anywhere. People are quite gun friendly here. About 30% of people that I know have a permit. My Dentist is a former FFL, my neighbor competes with his 1911 and reloads. This is a haven for the NRA. The gun club is 15 minutes away. If you are getting a picture of Hee Haw and coon dawgs in your mind, then stop. This is a very nice area with five star resturants and world class hotels. I stood in line at the market recently with Naomi Judd (no she did not talk to me). This part of TN is a gun owner's paradise. Betty lives around here someplace. Welcome.
