Dragon Leatherworks...now offering Tennessee Handgun Permit Classes.
To get things rolling, through to the end of May, I'll be offering the NRA First Steps for Pistol for $50/person (regular price will be $65/person). The Tennessee Handgun Permit Classes are $80/person. If you book BOTH the First Steps and TN Carry Class AT THE SAME TIME I'll take an additional $10 off the TN Carry Class.
About the First Steps class:
If you are a new/novice shooter, I highly recommend taking the First Steps class to help develop a solid foundation to build your shooting skills before taking the Handgun Carry Class. The Handgun Carry Classes are offered on the first Sunday of each month, additional classes will be added if the primary class is full. Kindly send an email to email@example.com and include your name AND PHONE NUMBER. I will call you to schedule class time and take your CC information for the required $25 deposit to hold the class space.
The NRA First Steps is a one-on-one or one-on-two (not more than two persons at a time) private tutoring on handguns, which covers a tutoring session (1 1/2 - 2 hours) of:
- Safe gun handling (the Four Rules of Safety, and the Eight Rules of Safe Gun Handling)
- Instruction on YOUR pistol (either revolver or handgun), covering care, field stripping, cleaning, maintenance, etc.
- We will determine your dominant eye (to be able to properly gain your sight picture and aim the firearm) and go through different stance positions to find the best suited for you.
- We will cover your stance, grip, presentation, shooting, and follow-through.
- All tutoring will be done using a Bluegun first, then your actual unloaded pistol prior to going to the range for live fire.
After the private tutoring, we go to the range where we'll practice live-fire, break old habits, learn proper techniques, and get you to the point where you can shoot well enough to take the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit Course and pass with flying colors.
The NRA First Steps will be offered by appointment only, on Sundays.
Call 865-240-1625 to make an appointment and leave a $25 deposit via credit card to reserve the tutoring time. Deposits are NOT REFUNDABLE. You will bring your own pistol, along with safety glasses and ear protection (If you don't have these, we do have them for sale in the store). You may bring your own ammo, and we also have ammo for sale at the store. Targets will be provided for the range sessions.
About the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit class:
The TN Handgun Carry Class is the State-Mandated curriculum to qualify for the Carry Permit. 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. Call us at 865-240-1625 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name AND PHONE NUMBER. I will call you to schedule class time and take your CC information for the required $25 deposit to hold the class space.
The States that DO NOT HONOR the Tennessee Carry Permit are:
- New Jersey
- New York
- Rhode Island

The Dragon Leatherworks Mission: Make holsters that fill a need, not an ego.
Holsters that came into being by looking at a need first, finding the solution, then designing the holster to be as visually appealing as possible while doing its job.
All Made in the USA, by hand, one at a time. No mass production. No Chinese partial production with the assembly in the USA so as to claim that it's American Made. No machine assembly using thin, easily collapsing leathers with lightweight stitching. Our stock is heavy leather, ruggedly assembled, designed to last for many years.
Our hand-built, surprisingly well-priced holsters, are made with the ultimate renewable resource: leather. This classic material has been the partner of firearms, carrying and protecting the ultimate self-defense tool that man has created, for over two centuries.
Just click on a holster name on the top menu bar to see product photographs, color and hardware choices, testimonials and product reviews, and all the specifics about each of our gun holsters. Thanks for stopping in and giving the Dragon Leatherworks Holsters a look!
