  1. I wanted to share that the new range in Knoxville, Shoot Point Blank Range, has a new ladies club. Guys --- if you have a hard time getting your lady to go out shooting with you, maybe some time with the girls at the range will give her some fun motivation! Let her know about this monthly event! Shoot Point Blank Range - Lady Sure Shots The first meeting is Saturday February 17th, 2018 at 9:00a.m.-10:30. It is $10 to reserve a seat, so sign up with the range in advance to insure you get a seat. See you there!
  2. Good information. It sounds like TN law is tougher than Federal. As you bolded above, the TN law states MENTAL institution. JCanon, has stated MEDICAL institution in the original post, not mental. JCanon, that wording might also be good to bring up to Lisa, I bet she asks for it. We are pulling for your husband, and we thank him for his service. -I am NOT a lawyer either.
  3. Also, I thought I heard that being "voluntarily admitted" is different than being "forceably admitted" to a mental institution with regard to handgun permits. I thought a person could only be denied if they were forceably admitted. If that is truly the case, then maybe what is needed is a clarification of the terms of admittance. It would be a good question to ask. Hopefully, Lisa can help you.
  4. I am amazed they were able to put up another range in Knoxville. The ordinances are stifling there. I think they were able to put it up because it was not in town, and in an industrial area. I am just glad they were able to do it!
  5. I think they have lunch time range lane rental discounts too ; ) Unfortunately, they are a little bit too far from my office.
  6. I don't see any new threads on this, but there is a new range in Knoxville called Shoot Point Blank Range and Gun Shop. They are having give-aways of memberships, guns and stuff Fri-Sun (today). I went yesterday. It was a neat, clean, very friendly, safe and comfortable experience for all. Bring the wife and kids! I used the pistol range, it was great and there is always a friendly RSO present. There are lots of guns for sale in the store. From what I heard, they had a rush on Friday so supplies are a little low. They will be getting more in and also listening to what kinds of guns the locals want to buy so they can get a more specific selection in the store. Here is the address: Shoot Point Blank Range & Gun Shop 620 Corporate Point Way Knoxville, TN 37932 Shoot Point Blank Website Info
  7. Bump, she is back up for sale, a great way to appreciate this beautiful spring weather! Crank sensor has been replaced and she is running beautifully!
  8. I am already making it to some of the competitions and I am working to bring other people (men and women) with me. I definitely want to make it to ORSA sooner than later. I would like to talk to other women in the industry outside of the events, more business related. So, I was curious if there were any female specific opportunities like that in the area.
  9. Does anyone know of any female oriented groups, clubs or associations in the Eastern Tennessee area? I am aware of The Well Armed Woman, but I am looking for something a little better for networking with other already trained female instructors and/or competitors. Ideas?
  10. Governors Crossing Theaters in Pigeon Forge are now posted.
  11. Ladies only shooters gathering at 6:00p.m. at Stonehouse Pizza 1725 Walden's Creek Rd., Sevierville, TN. Please be sure to RSVP in advance so I know who is coming! Whether you are a seasoned female shooter or a woman who is just starting to think about getting a gun, come join us for camaraderie, food, fun and shooting related discussion! We are confident, but not boastful. We have fun, but do not gossip at someone elses expense. We can be beginners or Instructors or competitors. We can be professionals or college students. But we are all supportive of each other and our desire for increased confidence and independence. Stonehouse Pizza gives a 15% discount to anyone who has a carry permit! Awesome!!! (1725 Walden's Creek Rd, Sevierville, TN) If you ever go there on your own, mention that Andrea the NRA Instructor told you about his discount offer! In case of bad weather or lack of RSVPs, I reserve the right to cancel this Meetup. Please RSVP so I can contact you in case of a cancellation.
  12. The Vette is going to the shop today. Should be back after the first of the year running better than ever!
  13. I am a Certified Pistol Instructor (NRA & State). I have been working as a good-will ambassador to bring more people into firearms for self defense and as a sport and to help them move toward getting their Carry permit. As a woman, I have been focusing on providing specialized training for women, although I do teach beginning men and children. Sometimes I will be invited as a speaker for a group; I do also speak on other topics such as "Internet Safety". Sometimes, I just set up my own thing and see how many people I can pull together for a general Q&A session, then I do personalized training, etc. Feel free to PM me if you have ideas to share, I am pretty flexible. I don't think Dandridge is too far for me.
