Handgun Carry Permit Class.  

Here at Learn 2 Shoot Handgun Training Academy we take your training very serious. We strive to provide you with a nice, clean professional training environment.

After you sign up for a class go to the state's website
and apply for your Handgun Carry Permit
The state's system will issue you a 7 digit confirmation number. Be sure you bring your confirmation number with you to class.
We need your confirmation number to report your scores to the state. After we report your scores your confirmation number becomes your certification number that you use to get your permit from the state.

This is an 8 hour class conducted in 1 day rain or shine. All classes start at 7:30am please be on time and you need to be available until 4:30pm. Please be on time to class. Please park in the main part of the parking lot. Bring your handgun in, leave ALL ammo and your cell phone in your car.
No gate loaded revolvers please.

You will need a quality handgun (we rent them if you don't have one) and 50 rounds of quality ammo. Please dress according to the weather as the range is outside.  If you have one please bring a folding chair and a baseball cap to use at the range.

Classes are conducted at 855 W. College St. Suite D Murfreesboro, TN 37129 and we shoot at a nice outdoor range located near in Woodbury TN.

After successful completion of this class you have 6 months to go to any full service Driver Testing Station in the State of Tennessee.  If for any reason you wait more than 6 months you will have to take the entire class over again. The state will charge you for your background check and your fingerprint fee.

  After you complete your class make sure you wash your hands with cold water to get the gun powder residue off.

Once you receive your permit, your handgun may be carried open or concealed, this is your choice in the State of Tennessee. You CAN NOT carry your handgun until your permit comes back to you in the mail.

Lora Norris Loftis reviewed Learn 2 Shoot — 5 star review
Dennis was amazing! To be honest, I've been putting off taking the class because I expected it to be a long, boring, torturous day. That was not the case at all. Not only did I learn SO much, I truly enjoyed every bit of it. Dennis is very knowledgeable and taught us a lot, but he made it interesting and fun while he did it. I will definitely take his advanced class and will recommend him to every gun owner I know.

Marissa Lusz reviewed Learn 2 Shoot — 5 star review
I loved this class, wonderful instructor who made it fun and entertaining, but still stressed the seriousness of safe weapons handling and when is the proper time to use our weapon for our personal protection! I will definitely be recommending this class to my friends and be coming here again in the future for the advanced class!

Jeff Alexander I would like to say I really enjoyed taking this class! Very professional job by Dennis Mankin and his group! I would highly recommend the Learn 2 Shoot training class to anyone! 1 give it 5 out of 5 stars.
