Dragon Leatherworks now offers the Tennessee Resident Handgun Permit Class

The TN Handgun Carry Class is the State-Mandated curriculum to qualify for the Carry Permit. Call us at 865-240-1625 or send an email to and include your name AND PHONE NUMBER. I will call you to schedule class time and take your Credit Card information for the required $25 deposit to hold the class space.

The course covers everything you need to know to pass the written exam (done at the end of the classroom session on the same day as the class) and covers topics including but not limited to:

After the classroom portion, in order to complete the course, you will need to show proficiency in live-fire at the range. We use the Windrock Shooting Range located in Oliver Springs for the live-fire portion of the class. PLEASE NOTE: There is a $10 Range Use Fee required to be paid when we arrive at the range. This is not included in the cost of the TN Handgun Carry Class.
We ask that you provide your own pistol (either semi-auto or revolver) and ammo for the course. If you do not own a pistol, we do have rentals available for $25 each. If you need ammunition, we also sell ammo, prices vary as to the manufacturer.

To date, the TN Carry Permit is recognized in all but 10 (ten) States, which means that you can safely carry your defensive firearm in the remaining States, in accordance with their Carry Laws, while you are a valid Tennessee Resident Permit Holder.

The States that DO NOT HONOR the Tennessee Carry Permit are:
