    Hi folks. I'll be making a road trip from VA where I OC. We don't require a permit, but I understand one is required in TN. Do I need to lock my weapon up in my trunk when I enter TN, or do I just unload it? Does the amo need to be kept seperately?

    You best bet is to get a Virginia CHL soyou can carry openly or concealed in Tennessee.

    While I am not sure about transport in TN besides unloaded and locked in a container, be aware that it is a felony to carry a firearm concealed or not without a permit, so you best bet is get a Virginia CHL.

    Unloaded and ammo and gun stored separately.

    That's why I was planning on unloading it. Are you saying it's a felony to conceal an unloaded handgun?
