Be careful about the open carry in TN. I know in Nashville, it is illegal without a permit. They call it carrying a fire arm with the intention of going armed. Go figure. I already had a go round with a cop about that one.

Tennessee is a no permit, no gun, (ie no open carry) state. Openly Carrying a handgun without a permit in TN is 'intent to go armed'.

But the way the TN handgun permit is written it does not specify 'concealed', so if you have a permit you can carry openly if you want.
