TN Handgun Carry Permit Course

At Citizens Safety Academy we strive to offer the safest and most comprehensive Handgun Carry Permit Course in the state.

We deliberately keep our class size small. For many people, this is the first firearms training class they will attend, and we want to ensure students get the attention they require. We also want to make the class the SAFEST experience possible.

This course is for Tennessee residents seeking to carry a firearm outside of their home and qualifies the graduating student to apply for the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit.

We spend time in both the classroom and the range to effectively understand:
