Anyone here from Tennessee with a CWP (or know of a good link)? I'll be going there for a few days, and I'm looking for some cliff notes on do's/dont's and how similar they are to Florida.

might help a little, source is usacarry.com
http://www.usacarry.com/tennessee_co...formation.html

Informing Law Enforcement of Carry:
You do not have to inform an officer you are armed, but if requested
you must show your permit to the officer. He can also disarm you if he
feels it is “reasonablly necessary” for his safety, your safety or the
safety of others.

T.C.A. 39-17-1351(n)(1)
Except as provided in subdivision (n)(2), a permit issued pursuant to
this section shall be good for four (4) years and shall entitle the
permit holder to carry any handgun or handguns that the permit holder
legally owns or possesses. The permit holder shall have the permit in
the holder’s immediate possession at all times when carrying a handgun and shall display the permit on demand of a law enforcement officer.

T.C.A. 39-17-1351(t)
Any law enforcement officer of this state or of any county or
municipality may, within the realm of the officer’s lawful jurisdiction
and when the officer is acting in the lawful discharge of the officer’s
official duties, disarm a permit holder at any time when the officer
reasonably believes it is necessary for the protection of the permit
holder, officer or other individual or individuals. The officer shall
return the handgun to the permit holder before discharging the permit
holder from the scene when the officer has determined that the permit
holder is not a threat to the officer, to the permit holder, or other
individual or individuals provided that the permit holder has not
violated any provision of this section and provided the permit holder
has not committed any other violation that results in the arrest of the
permit holder.

Automobile carry:
Public Chapter 431 – Loaded Rifles and Shotguns in Vehicles – This act allows a person with a handgun carry permit to possess a loaded rifle or loaded shotgun in a privately owned vehicle. The act provides that the weapon cannot have ammunition in the chamber except in the case that an individual permit holder feels physically threatened.

Places off-limits when carrying:
1. It is lawful to possess a firearm on the premises of a public place where alcoholic beverages are served as long as such individual is not consuming alcoholic beverages. However, a restaurant may choose to post a sign prohibiting firearms.
2. It is unlawful to carry a firearm into a judicial proceeding.
3. It is unlawful to possess or carry any firearm, with the intent to go armed, onto any school or college facility or grounds (to include a bus), unless used for instructional or sanctioned ceremonial purposes.
4. It is unlawful to carry a weapon into a meeting where the owner has posted prominent signs pursuant to § 39-17-1359 at all entrances banning weapon possession.
5. It is an offense for any person to possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, with the intent to go armed, any weapon prohibited by § 39-17-1302(a), not used solely for instructional, display or sanctioned ceremonial purposes, in or on the grounds of any public park, playground, civic center or other building facility, area or property owned, used or operated by any municipal, county or state government, or instrumentality thereof, for recreational purposes.

6. You can drop off a student at school as long as the gun is not handled while doing so. You can also leave it in your car if you are a non-student adult.

7. It is general excepted that Government owned Parks, Civic Center and recreational areas are off limits.

8. It is a violation of the law to carry where it is posted with this sign:

PURSUANT TO § 39-17-1359, THE OWNER/OPERATOR OF THIS PROPERTY
HAS BANNED WEAPONS ON THIS PROPERTY, OR WITHIN THIS
BUILDING OR THIS PORTION OF THIS BUILDING. FAILURE TO COMPLY
WITH THIS PROHIBITION IS PUNISHABLE AS A CRIMINAL ACT UNDER
STATE LAW AND MAY SUBJECT THE VIOLATOR TO A FINE OF NOT
MORE THAN FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500).

The wording must be substantially similar. A sign with a picture of a handgun with a slash through it is valid.

Alcohol and Drugs:
On alcohol and drugs that is covered under T.C.A. 39-17-1321 there is no specific BAC limit. However recent legislation that is
moving through the legislator that would make it illegal to hunt while
intoxicated on public lands has a BAC of .08%, not sure if this
would/could establish a BAC level under 39-17-1321 or not. See HB 1875

Deadly Force / Castle Doctrine:
Tennessee is a Castle Doctrine state and has a stand-your-ground law.



Open Carry:
Prohibited unless one possesses a permit to carry a handgun.

I'm in Tennessee, no CCW yet, though. Requires an 8 hour class and $100 and I just don't have the time.

Also, where in TN you going to be?

I'll be near Gatlinburg for a few days. Since Tennessee has reciprocity with Florida, I want to research the carry laws prior to arriving.

I don't think he needs or wants to take a CCW class in tennessee, they have reciprocity with almost every state...

BTW you don't have a day off ever to take a class? I thought I worked a lot.

I was just saying my reasoning for why I haven't done it. Tennessee is pretty laid back with guns, he shouldn't have any issues.

I'm a full-time student that works 30 hours over the weekend.

I've been contemplating retiring my Howard Leight earpro. The MSA Sordin line has caught my eye, specifically the Supreme Pro IVs. I like the upgrades over the Basic, and I don't think I will need the superior waterproofing of the Pro X. Whichever I choose, I think I will add the gel seals because I'm a pussy and I like to be comfortable while I'm destroying things.

Thoughts, comments, suggestions on another brand?

I don't know what it's called, I just know the sound it makes when it kills a man.

Quietly, though, through my orange disposable ear plugs.

I decided against the MSA Sordin Supremes and instead I think I'm going with the TCI DEHPs. They are about the same price as the Pro-X, have upgraded electronics, better battery life, a higher NRR, and almost the same NRR as the more expensive MSA Sordin Pro+.

Is this just to have around the house while you're gone? If so, I'd maybe look at a single stack 9mm over a .380. I'm guessing she probably likes the slimmer frame of the Bersa.

Has she shot it yet vs. just held in her hand? Reason I ask is that my old Ruger LCP was great to hold in the hand, but my wife sound it entirely too snappy for use when she actually shot it. A bigger frame single stack might be a good choice depending on the role it will play. Just some thoughts.

See if she likes the Walther PPS or a Kahr CW9. Like SLVR JDM said, it would be better to adjust the gun rather than both the gun and the cartridge.

Gunnar, if she is looking for a smaller, thin gun. I highly recommend the PPS.

I was about to buy a romanian AK-74 from a guy down here, and my wife put the kibosh in it.

She said no more guns until I buy a safe.

CW9 is a great gun, especially for the money!
