I have out of state police officer certification. Moved to TN a year ago. Not currently a LEO but work for Federal Gov. Want to get my carry permit. I was a firearms instructor at my department. Will TN waive the class since I clearly have training and does anyone know what I have to do if they do.
Ok from the site. so you think out of state certification would apply. I think I will call I hope it applies.
