Conceled carry in a car

Recommended Posts

I got a CPL in Michigan. I drive to Georgia alot. I been reading up on your guys law's but I would like someone's input who's lives here and has a CPL CHL.

Long drives I got a iwb holster I mounted to the side of my center console.  Close to the shifter so if I ever need it I can quickly get to it. This ok in Tennessee? Also AR pistol on the passenger side floor ok?

No permit is needed in Tennessee to keep loaded firearms (handguns and long guns) in your vehicle. It's considered an extension of your home. Your Michigan permit is valid in Tennessee, so you're also A-OK to carry a handgun outside your vehicle. TN recognizes it as a carry permit so you can carry open or concealed at your discretion. An AR pistol is considered a handgun, but you need to know that not every law enforcement officer will be aware of this.

Note that "no guns" signs do have the force of law here. Signs are supposed to have very specific wording and symbols, but I find that unless you want to get into the weeds of the Tennessee codes, it's better to just assume any no-guns sign is valid.
