Tennessee Handgun Permit
The class consists of both classroom instruction and live-fire range exercises. These are both held at the Dickson PD range, unless it's a private class (we can discuss details of location). Lucky for us, the PD range is an all-in-one location with a classroom and 100 yard range. This eliminates the need to travel from the classroom to the range, it's just a short walk away.
You can follow this link https://dl.safety.tn.gov/_/ (click on handgun permit tab) for a plethora of information about Tennessee handgun carry permits from How To Apply to Fees and FAQs.
You will, however, need to do some legwork before attending class.
You must be 21 or older to attend the handgun permit class.
There is a new online procedure that must be completed. You must first visit https://apps.tn.gov/handgun/ and click "Begin Application" and follow the instructions. If you need help, feel free to contact me.
Once completed, you will be given a confirmation number, I need this number because it will link your grades/scores with your confirmation number for the state. I suggest emailing yourself or writing this number down because you will need to have it available for the class.
Navigate to the Sign Up Here page for further instructions.
