    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.
