Students taking the Tennessee Handgun Carry Class will learn handgun nomenclature, function, operation, handgun safety, cleaning, storage, and the legal liabilities of carrying a handgun. The course covers how to load, unload and carry a handgun, common gun and ammunition malfunctions, and fundamental shooting techniques.
