    permit office: (866) 849-3548

    When in doubt, call...

    Basically, the permit in Tennessee is a carry permit, which allows both open and concealed. I believe (please correct if wrong) your permit would allow OC in TN.

    IF your permit grants more than the Tennessee permit, you are limited to the Tennessee rules... NOTE: HANDGUN ONLY... Does not include knives, spray, tazers, etc...

    Yes.
    Watch for anyplace with written or gunbuster postings against carry, no carry there.

    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
