If you are new to shooting, or it’s been a long time since you have shot a handgun, or you aren’t familiar with basic safety fundamentals and functions of a firearm… then we suggest going through a beginner pistol crash course or private class before coming through the TN carry permit class. This will take away frustration, and nerves and prepare you for taking the TN carry permit class. If this is an option for you, call us to set up a private class or a small group crash course today!
If a student fails either or both tests, there will be an additional fee of $30 to re-take it. The test must be re-taken within a 90 day period of taking it the first time.
Admissions and Deposits
- All incoming students are required to make a non-refundable deposit of $20. This deposit will be credited to the student’s class of choice. All Fees are transferable to other available dates.
Credit and Refund Policies
- Class fees will be credited to students’ accounts who give a 24 hour notification of cancellation from the class date minus the deposit fee. All fees are transferable within 6 months of the class date.
Yes! We let students qualify with one of our Glock 17, 9mm pistols for an extra $5.00. You can purchase the ammunition in our store, and bring it with you to the class. Students must bring or purchase 50 rds. of ammunition.
We also have Ruger SR22, .22lr pistols available for rent for an additional $5.00 to the class price. We do ask that you purchase CCI mini mag ammunition in our store for use with these pistols as we have found this ammunition to be this most reliable in them.
You can get another certificate, but unfortunately you have to go back through the class.
When you take both the range test, and the written test, you we will give you your certificate saying that you have passed the course. You then take that certificate to the DMV, and then pay the state $115. They will then tell you to go get fingerprinted. There are several fingerprint places in middle TN. We have one at our Hendersonville location. After you get fingerprinted, that is submitted to the state. You will receive your permit within 2 to 6 weeks in the mail.
EXCEPTION!!! If you have a confirmation number from the state, you will NOT get a paper certificate. We will submit your passing scores online with the state through the confirmation number that students provide us. Once you are ready to go through the background check with the state, you will take to any full service DMV your confirmation number, $115, birth certificate or passport. They will then pull up your confirmation number and see that you passed your course with us. Then you will need to be fingerprinted.
We would prefer that the class is just for students only. Our classes on average fill up to capacity, and we would need seats for students only.
The TN/HCP permit class is $70.00 and requires 50 rounds of ammunition. For more details on this class CLICK HERE.
50 rounds of ammunition is what is required for the TN/HCP Level I handgun class. Ammunition is available for purchase for use in the class.
Please contact us ahead of time so that we may make sure we have your caliber in stock. (Especially if you have an uncommon caliber; .357sig, 10mm, .327mag, etc.)
