The Humphreys County Sheriff’s Office offers the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit class.  Sheriff Davis began this program shortly after taking office in 2006.  We have classes nearly once per month and sometimes more often.  This class is the first step in obtaining your carry permit that is issued by the state.  We are proud to host this class and feel that we offer quality training to the members of our community.  Anyone 21 years of age or older are welcome.  This class is on a first come first serve basis.

The cost for the class is $50.
