    As long as TN recognizes your permit, you can safely OC here.

    I'm about 4 hours from dover. That's farther west than nashville and right at the northern border, correct?

    Hi guys... I live in Huntsville AL. Have opened carried once in Northern Alabama and no incident.

    I drive up to Camden TN now and then to take classes at the Tactical Response shooting/fighting school. I also go to Manchester for 3-gun and IDPA matches a couple times a year.

    Since TN recognizes my AL concealed carry permit, am I safe to open carry in TN ? Same question as the OP, just adding my own addendum. I prefer to carry concealed, but just want to be 100% sure that I don't HAVE to.

    Thanks!

    Wow...I live in Parsons and never knew such classes were that close to me. I may need to get up there and check it out.

    But to answer your question....Yes..it is still the same. TN honors and valid license/permit etc.... from any other state...and you can OC in TN.

    Definitely check them out Fallguy. I'm sure you've looked at their schedule by now. They cover the bases in training classes both in Camden and at other sites: Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Force on Force, Medical, Driving, etc, etc.
