So, What’s Reciprocity? What’s Constitutional Carry?
I heard those terms recently. Do I still need a permit?
Much like Brian and I have been featured in the news, Tennessee has been in the news lately because of something called “constitutional carry.” It basically means state laws have passed recently that allows someone to carry a firearm without a permit. Thing is, the moment you travel out of state, you’ll still likely need a permit.
That’s where reciprocity comes in. Reciprocity basically means when you take our course and get your handgun carry permit, you’ll be able to use that permit in 48 other states. It’s safer and simply helps mitigate risk in case anything ever happens if you have a permit that shows you took a course to learn how to be a more responsible citizen.
Not to mention, our course teaches you the laws you need to be aware of, firearm safety rules, and was designed from the ground up to teach people what they need to know (and a little more) about firearms. The fact you can take the course anywhere, anytime, and on any of your devices -- there are basically zero reasons you shouldn’t join us.
