CC in TN... help.

Discussion in 'Volunteer Glockers' started by southernreign, Jun 11, 2009.

  1. I am going to be travelling through TN this weekend, what do I need to know about CC in TN... I have a NC CCW permit... Do I need to lock the gun up, or can I keep it on me while driving.
    What is the proper way of handling carrying if I were to be pulled over too.

    Thank you in advance.

    No prob while driving, except in parks(eg, GSMNP) and such and thats where it gets a bit fuzzy imo.

    In a traffic stop, I ALWAYS tell an officer that I have a CCW and the location of my pistol and ask him what he wants me to do.

    Long ago I learned to:
    Stop car, keys on dash, interior lights on if dark, DL + CCW in hand(along with proof of insurance and registration if handy) with both hands on the steering wheel. This will make you some PoPo friends if you get stopped. Passengers should keep hands in plain sight. This isnt law, but is always a good idea.

    Enjoy your time in TN!

    Tennessee law does not require that you "announce." However, if you have a firearm/firearms visible about your person, it probably would be wise to do so. If it's a routine traffic stop (i.e., you know you were speeding) and no weapons are exposed, I don't see any reason to draw even more unwanted attention to those out of state tags. :winkie:
