SFWA . . .  Women's HCP Choice Since 2008!

SFWA has been offering Enhanced Handgun Carry Permit Classes for FREE and by donation, since 2008! We have helped tens-of-thousands of women, and men who accompany them, pass both the written exam and live-fire requirements of the course necessary to apply for an enhanced permit to carry a firearm for personal protection. Now SFWA is offering this online course for women (and men) which is designed in the same woman-friendly presentation . . . a few thousand women have now chosen this course!

Open Carry vs Concealed Carry?

The choice is yours, there are benefits to both depending on the circumstances and will depend on the permit you select. For example: The Enhanced Carry Permit is an in-person 8 hour course that also includes live-fire training and has guaranteed reciprocity with the 34 states that recognize Tennessee's Enhanced Carry Permit. You also have the benefit of the hands-on help of an instructor; and you are permitted to carry open or concealed in locations which are NOT permitted by the NEW "permit-less carry law" [aka: Constitutional Carry]. Under the new law, one important difference is: You may carry a gun without a permit but NOT in public parks, waterways or greenways.  Whereas the Concealed Only Permit will only permit you to carry where others cannot see your handgun; and, it permits carrying when traveling in certain other states.
