  1. Wow this thread blew up!  So the more I think about it it does look like my only real option is to get the conceal carry permit. Seems like a waste of $120 but I guess that's where we are right now. I've been out riding the past few days but have yet to take my gun with me.  I went into downtown Memphis on Saturday and felt fine but I know the more I start to adventure out and the later in the night I ride the more unsettling scenarios I'll find myself in.  Things were a lot simpler in Pennsylvania, haha.
  2. So the next question is what if I carry the weapon on myself, but before I step off I remove the clip and place it in my backpack or another place that is not easily accessible? Understandable I realize I'm not getting legal advice from the Internet.
  3. I'm new to Tennessee and unfortunately don't have the time to get a Conceal Carry Permit. I travel for work 90% of the year so I'm not often home.  On top of that I'm only here for a year and will be relocated again by 2017.  The issue is I love to ride when I'm home however with living in Cordova and wanted to ride through Memphis, I'd really rather have my pistol with me.   From what I've gathered there was a revision to the castle doctrine claiming your vehicle as an extension of your property; granted the articles don't make much sense to me (39-17-1307 & 39-17-1308).  But from what I've read a weapon may be kept in a vehicle as long as the driver may legally posses the weapon.  It does not however state if the weapon should be holstered, kept closeby, loaded/unloaded, the weapon and ammunition split up. Nothing.  This then brings me to my motorcycle, I can't find anything that would allow me to legally keep a weapon on me on a motorcycle. I scowed the internet and finally found this forum. Perhaps someone can weigh in on this subject.   I was also told by a friend in the Memphis area that the weapon must in fact be loaded with one in the chamber, if i need to cock the weapon or load a clip its considered class 1 murder or premeditated. I'm a bit overwhelmed with all of this information.   Thanks guys!
