THE ENHANCED PERMIT is the new name for the existing TN Carry Permit that includes RECIPROCITY* with many states and the ability to both conceal and OPEN carry. More classroom time (8 hours) is mandatory for the enhanced option of RECIPROCITY* and the ability to OPEN carry. The first 5 hours of the TN carry permit class takes place at our location in Wears Valley, Sevier County where we also offer the unique opportunity for you to pre-qualify on our firearms simulator to work out any issue before we head out to the live-fire qualification in Kodak, also Sevier County. $75 for the class $100-200+ for the permit.

*RECIPROCITY - this is where States other than TN recognize your carry permit and allow you to carry in their State. The TN Enhanced permit is recognized in many States. It is uncertain, right now, whether other States will recognize the new Basic Concealed Carry permit. You need to decide what is worth more to you: the extra money and freedom of having the Enhanced permit, or if the less expensive Basic permit will be good enough.
