Handy Tip

Local arfcommer on TN carry permits:

I’ve read about people having some similar experiences, so I thought I’d share this.

If you are waiting on your permit, call this number 866-849-3548 (toll-free) and ask about the status of your permit.

If your background check is approved, they’ll issue the permit today.

So apparently the good people at the capital are kinda sitting on their thumbs, and if you don’t call about the permit, they don’t get in any hurry.

Good to know.

    Given how ‘responsive’ the state employees I support on working to help their co-workers, I’m not surprised that one would need to ‘follow-up’ to get something from the local government agency.

    “Shall Issue” needs to be ammended to; “shall issue within x days or you have grounds for a big, winning lawsuit”.

    @ Lyle – In Tennessee:

    “(l) The department shall issue a permit to an applicant not prohibited from obtaining a permit under this section no later than ninety (90) days after the date the department receives the application.”

    Mine took almost 180 days due to a supposed “huge backlog” of requests being processed. :/
