Our instructor advised us to qualify with the firearm we would be carrying. He frowned on using a .22, unless that is what you definitely were planning on carrying.

And we shot 48 rnds, 6 strong hand, 6 weak hand, from 3,9,15, and 25 yds. At 25 yds, we had the option of firing all 12 rnds strong hand, which I gladly did. Our instructor was a very knowlegeable teacher, and was the police chief from a nearby county. Learned a lot in that 2 day class.

Your money
ID
paper and pen
100 rounds of ammo
Shooting 12 rounds at 5, 7, 10 and 15 yards.
The extra shells are in case you didn't do well the first round, you can shoot again. Good luck!

I would guess that you practice and use it for practice and not worry about score. I will tell you if you are practicing to carry for self defense or even offensive you will want to try different positions and events that you would not try if you were target shooting for score. If you are defending yourself a perfect score is a full mag in the bad guy with no rounds in bystanders and bad guy in the morgue.

I'd say this is best answer.


But from a safety stand point no ammo in class. We shot 48 when I did mine so unless Ur taking a 22 I'd say a box of 50 is plenty. Tn is 8 hr class 4 RM 4 range...best I remember reading... mine was 3.5 RM, hr drive to range and maybe 2 hr at range... no one failed although a few were scary to be around lol

Missouri requires 140 rounds fired !! 70/semi auto and 70/revolver with 40 of the 140 being your qualifying rounds....needless to say I as most shot 22lr.
It is 8hrs total here also but can be broken up into two days depending on instructor.
Good luck and stay safe !

My opinion, but if you post a perfect score, then if you ever have to use it, the prosecution can say "Why did you not try to wound Mr. Perpetrator, instead of killing him. From the looks of your qualification target, you should have been able to place your shots anywhere you wanted"

It might not make a difference in a criminal case, but in a civil suit, it could wind up costing you.

That argument may be able to be made either way. They could argue that if you could shoot better then maybe he would have only been wounded instead of kilt. Either way, when we decide to carry and use deadly force, we have to be ready to accept the consequences of our actions.

I just did mine a month ago at Guns and Leather in Hendersonville. I rented their gun since .45 is hard to come by and isn't cheap. Used a Glock 9mm and bought the ammo at the same time I rented the gun. Total rental and ammo was something around $20.00

Take your drivers licence, Fill out the online TN handgun carry permit application and take that with you, you will need the number so they can update the application. I got my permit in about 3 weeks after fingerprint.
