Tennessee Enhanced Handgun Carry Permit Safety Course
The Tennessee Enhanced Handgun Permit (TCA 39-17-1351) is Tennessee's premiere permit, and 37 States currently accepts Tennessee's Enhanced Handgun Permit. This State safety course consists of 4-hour classroom instruction followed by a written exam (multiple choice). Upon successful completion of your written examination, you can break for lunch, and we'll meet back at the range, where you will demonstrate your ability to handle and shoot your handgun safely and accurately.
At the range, you will shoot 20 rounds at the 3-yard line, 20 rounds at the 5-yard line, and finish up at the 7-yard line where you will shoot your last ten shots. The target you will be shooting is a B-29, and any hit inside the seven ring will be worth 2 points. You will need to shoot while applying the 3 Saftey Rules at all times.
