I was at the gun show today, mostly to watch the craziness, and I noticed something odd at the Range training school. The had the current target used by the state of Tennessee’s CPL classes (which I believe is the standard FBI target), and next to it is what they’re claiming is the new target that will be used as of April 1st. The new target is roughly half the size of the old target, and the guy at the table informed me that they are to have people shoot at 3 and 6 yards, and that they are going to have to keep the targets on file for 5 years (the length of the permit).
Sadly, I didn’t think to take a picture with my phone (and the show was too crowded, anyways).
I haven’t been able to find anything on the TN Dept. of Safety’s website about it, but I will be contacting them tomorrow to see if I can find more information.
Looks like the state has decided that too many people were getting their carry permits.
*update* Confirmed with another instructor that they are, indeed, making changes and that a new smaller target will be used. He also confirmed that the new distances are 3, 5, and 7 yards with the removal of the 15 yard requirement.
