    which ever county you live in, give the school/range offering the course a call
    the course that I took 12 years ago (in Shelby Co.) consisted of 50 rds. from distances beginning at 1 yd., to 25+ yds.

    For my state I needed to make 16 holes out of 20 in a semi auto gun at a certain amount of yards on a target. I did 18 of 20. Maybe even 19 but groupings have a tendancy to make extra holes not count when a bullet passes through the big group hole made by prior bullets.

    In CO I took my hunter's safety class, which counted for a pistol class. Though we never even saw a pistol, and the shooting we did was a joke. Just had to fire a .22 rifle 10 times. Didn't even have to hit paper.

    I

    Just took the TN course two weeks ago.

    48 rounds.

    The distances were 3, 7, and 15 yards. 16 rounds at each but it was split up a bit so that the 3 yard was 50% slow fire, and then you finished the 7 and 15 again at the end it was 3 yards rapid fire. All had to be in the X, 10, 9, 8 rings on a B-27 target.

    Although I don't necessarily agree, you can qualify with a .22.

    The final two rounds from a box of 50 were allowed as head shots at 3 yards and did not count for the pass/fail.

    If I recall you had to keep 80% in those rings as aforementioned. All 27 persons in our class passed.

    Tom Givens at his school in Memphis, Rangemaster, does a class for the TN permit. How far are you from him?

    In general they are pretty minimal ...which is fine actually as most SD shootings take place a "bad breath range" where tack-driving accuracy doesn't really enter into the equation.

    It's actually more of a "can they handle the gun without shooting themselves or anyone else by accident" test as anything else. If you can do that, don't sweat it.
