Although many of our classes and courses focus primarily on providing shooters with an advanced level of marksmanship and Tier-1 tactical skills, our Chief Instructor, Jonathan Cross, is also certified by the United States Concealed Carry Association and licensed by the State of Tennessee to be able to offer shooting training and legal instruction that will allow you to make application for the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit. A TN Handgun Permit will allow you to lawfully carry a handgun, both openly and concealed, anywhere within the State where firearms are not restricted, as well as in other states that have concealed carry reciprocity agreements with Tennessee, or that recognizes Tennessee's carry permit.
Unlike other ranges' generic state-mandated 8 hour basic handgun permit classes, Our Advanced TN Handgun Permit Training is a 24 hour battery of instruction that covers the subjects mandated by the State of Tennessee for a resident to carry a handgun in an open or concealed manner, PLUS provides the student with a much more thorough and fundamentally solid handgun education and skill-set that lends itself to a more practical and realistic level of safety and defensive prowess.
Why should you take our Advanced Concealed Carry Permit Class?
We have found, through personal and training experience, that merely taking the state mandated class to get a state-issued Concealed Carry Permit is not enough training to empower you to safely & effectively protect yourself, while also ensuring the safety of others and innocent bystanders. Honestly, the issuance of a gun permit doesn't mean that you actually know how to use that gun well, if at all, or that you are safe, proficient, and/or lethal in its use. It merely means that the state says you can carry it in public and outside of your home, because you shot a static paper target at about 21 feet, and have learned the laws of self-defense and about general handgun safety. What you don't learn in that class effective handgun deployment.
Given the thorough nature of our Advanced Concealed Carry Curriculum, our Concealed Carry Permit instructional process is suitable for both new and experienced shooters, regardless of whether you have attended or participated in any structured training in the past. To ensure that you are the most responsibly armed citizen in your community, in addition to the State of Tennessee mandated handgun permit instruction, the Dauntless Tactical Advanced Concealed Carry Permit Coursework combines the extensive Live Fire instructional and training curricula of our Brilliant Handgun 1, Introductory Pistol Drills, and/or the Intro to Pistol or the USCCA Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals courses.
As we sincerely think and feel that it is our responsibility for making sure that, God forbid, if you should ever have to deploy your firearm in self-defense, or in defense of another, that you AND the rest of the public are safe, by ensuring that as a responsibly armed person you are well-instructed, well-trained, and well-drilled. It is our policy that we will not present or certify the TN Handgun Permit coursework at the rudimentary level only. All students seeking to obtain their TN Handgun Permit through Dauntless Tactical must undergo our comprehensive handgun training regimen. We are not a puppy mill for handgun permits. We focus on real training.
We INSIST that you be well-trained.
