Pellissippi State Community College offers its popular Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit class this month at a special two-for-one price.
The class is sure to fill up quickly, thanks to the two-for-one rate on the Saturday, May 16, session at the Hardin Valley Campus. The eight-hour course begins at 8 a.m.
The non-credit course is being offered through Pellissippi State’s Business and Community Services Division at the rate of $65 for any two students who register at the same time. Space is limited, and one person must register both students simultaneously in order for the two-for-one rate to apply.
Those who complete the eight-hour course satisfactorily can apply for a state carry permit. Completion of this or another related training course is required before applying for a Tennessee handgun carry permit.
The Pellissippi State course covers handgun parts, function, and operation; safety, cleaning, and storage; legal responsibilities of carrying a handgun; course review and testing; and firing range exercises.
Included are classroom instruction in the morning and range training after lunch. The person leading the class is certified both as a firearms instructor with the National Rifle Association and as a handgun instructor with the state of Tennessee.
The course meets at the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road, for classroom instruction. Range training in the afternoon takes place at a designated location off campus. Students must supply their own gun and ammunition. A $5 range fee for each student is payable to the instructor during class.
