Published 2:29 pm Tuesday, November 14, 2023
CCHFA is holding a Tennessee handgun permit class on Nov. 18 in the old upstairs county courthouse, starting at 8 a.m. The CCHFA supplies the pistols for the qualification part of the class. We qualify you at a time convenient to your schedule at the Carter County Sheriff’s range. Our club and classes are covered by NRA liability insurance. All you need to bring is your money, a valid driver’s license, a pen, and some paper. You will also be taught in depth so that you may select a pistol that is best suited for you. If you are interested, please contact a member of the association or call 423-213-7801 or 474-6467. If you want to pre-register for class, go to DL.SAFETY.TN.GOV. Regardless of your shooting knowledge or expertise, you will find this class both informative and a good review of the basics. It is taught by state and NRA-certified CCHFA members who have been teaching marksmanship for over 45 years. They know their subject and have the ability to make the classes fun. The class costs $50. We can adjust class hours and days to fit your work schedule. This class qualifies you for the Tennessee Handgun Permit that allows you to carry openly or concealed and is recognized and accepted by 37 other states in the USA. Listen up, due to a recent court case and ruling in the State of Tennessee, 18, 19 and 20-year-old citizens may now take this class and carry openly or concealed in Tennessee. We are a non-profit organization and all money earned from these classes goes into improving hunting, fishing and gun safety in Carter County. Please show up 15 minutes early to register.
