A day of classroom/range training is involved. It's very basic, with an open book test and something like 70% accuracy in center mass at the range. Then it's fingerprints and application at the drivers' license office. The total cost is less than $200. It only took me a month to get it in the mail. Be prepared for the fact that the class will likely be useless and provide loads of misinformation. You may also have an instructor muzzle-sweeping students in the classroom. Once you receive your permit you can OC or CC, but do some research on your own via handgunlaw.us and the TN code website to get the details on the law. In short, it is not a complicated process at all to get a permit.
