Handgun Permit Class

Saturday, Jan 13, 2018

12:00pm – 8:00pm

The state of Tennessee requires this class before filing an application for a handgun carry permit. The permit is required to legally carry a loaded handgun on your person. As a student enrolled in the Tennessee Handgun Carry Class you will learn about handgun nomenclature, function, handgun safety, storage, and the legal liabilities of carrying a handgun. You will also learn about carrying a handgun, ammunition malfunctions, and we will review loading and unloading, along with the fundamentals of handgun shooting. The state requires a passing score of 70 or higher on both the written and range test. The successful completion of this course will enable the student to file an application with the state for a Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit. Please note that this class DOES NOT teach you how to shoot. This class is meant for those who already know how to shoot and would like to carry a firearm for personal protection. KGR does have classes for those who would like to learn how to shoot.
