I'm going to be taking a long drive through Tennessee, and need to know where I can determine the legality of traveling with some class 3 guns. I will obviously have my paperwork and will plan to leave the guns unloaded. I also plan to carry my 1911 concealed in an IWB holster. I have a Florida non-resident CCW license.

The guns:


Anything I should be concerned about from a legal standpoint?

Thanks

Shawn

According to the information I have you will be fine with the CCW in TN. The only states that do not recognize the non-resident FL License is South Carolina, Colorado, Michigan, New Hampshire. There are several states that do not recognize the FL res. or non- Res. CCW permit too. They are CA, NV, OR, MN, WI, IL, NY, ME, MA, CT, RI, NJ, MD and DC.
You should not have any problems with the NFA items as long as you have the paper work with you.

Actually, to make it through, you must first let me try the Mac out.

No problems, as long as your paperwork is in order.

Nice collection sir, if you come through Memphis, and if you like, give a shout out and we'll take you out to MSSA for a fine day of shooting, albeit the 50 BMG will have to stay in the truck.

Thanks for the invite! I'm planning to do a looooong marathon drive so no stops planned.

Thanks though

The only problem I see is with the MAC10. Lage uppers are not allowed in Tennessee. Since I live on the Tn border here at Ft Campbell, KY you can stop by and I'll happily swap you out either a side or top cocker for your use while I keep your slow fire setup nice and safe. I just want to be a team player and don't want you to have any issues

If you go to tngunowners.com forum there is a section that list all the states that TN honors CCW permits and it is all but six states. The are all Obama states!

Correct. Translate that to read: "He has a Lage upper and I want one. He should stop by and swap with me as he passes through"

It's worth pointing out that tou can drive through ANY state with all of that stuff in your car as long as you follow FOPA transportation guidelines and you've got approval out the proper interstate NFA forms. Take this from someone who drove through NJ, MA, CT, and NYC on a weekly basis. FOPA gives you incredible protection throughout the country, but if you don't follow it to the letter, you are subject to the laws of a less-than-desirable state. Everyone who travels with firearms should take a few minutes to get familiar with FOPA.

When traveling, the only thing you ever really have to "check" about is handgun permit reciprocity if you intend on carrying a firearm outside of the FOPA guidelines (i.e. carrying a loaded firearm on your person) and for that I recommend
www.handgunlaw.us as a resource. Tennessee is easy... as long as you have a permit from any state and it's got your picture on it, you're good. What you really need to check on when traveling with a CCW are the laws such as duty to inform, prohibited areas, etc. That's where handgunlaw's site comes in handy.

Would've maybe helped this lady...
