  1. If one already has a permit, it will cost $200 to convert to lifetime. Renewal for 8 yrs is $50. So......near time of renewal essentially for an additional $150 it could be converted to a lifetime. Background check is done every 5 yrs automatically with the lifetime.
  2. Plate rack and dueling tree simple and durable
  3. FIRE! 5 Best Defensive Bullets for the .357 Magnum (msn.com)
  4. One of the reasons is reciprocity with other states. 13 states do not recognize the TN permit. Another reason is the TN ECP does a decent job in the applicable laws and emphasis on safety. One cannot carry a handgun in any Park in TN without a valid permit. Training does not have an endpoint.
  5. Or change my plans altogether. Or, at least carry a long gun.
  6. Chris Vittetoe....865-237-2547 Long-time smith. He has done a lot for me and my friends.
  7. Good job! Been there done that. Tom’s the real deal. Certainly not a show up and give-me course.
  8. I assume you are reloading? Message me your address and I’ll send you what I have.
  9. you've got extra grip panels.....easy to replace, give it a try.
  10. you can take sandpaper and lightly sand the grip to your comfort.
  11. Proficiency and having your firearm on you is really what matters. I have yet to find anyone willing to hold targets for me while I shoot my .22.
  12. As long as all involved are legally able to possess the firearm I see nothing illegal. Handguns need to be done as an in state transaction. Long guns can be done via USPS with reasonable cost as another option.
  13. If your TN permit is still 'in date' or lifetime, when you get a TN DL your permit will be valid, just ask for a new replacement. If expired, will have to repeat the class for the ECP.
  14. 1st quess firing pin channel gummed up causing it to stick....but dangerous situation. Get it checked by gunsmith.
  15. Safe bet is follow FBI. Last I heard was Gold Dot. I would also consider Critical defense, and HST with gun function a primary consideration.
