Get Trained. Be Ready.

THE HIGHEST OBLIGATION AND PRIVILEGE OF CITIZENSHIP IS BEARING ARMS. ~ GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON

So you would like to become an Arkansas Concealed Carry License holder, but you don’t know exactly what that entails. Here is the definitive answer you are looking for. Becoming a Concealed Handgun License Holder is not for everyone. You need to be able to not only shoot, but understand the points of law and be able to make good decisions based on the circumstances you find yourself in. Quality instruction is a must. Don't risk the consequences of poor decision making, inadequate instructional methods, or underdeveloped defensive shooting skills.

We offer professional training for those who desire it. We care about your understanding of the law and your ability to more than just function fire your firearm. We cover details, explain scenarios, use case law examples, and teach defensive shooting skills along with other factors you need to know to become a better defensive shooter.
Applicants are responsible for obtaining a complete, classifiable set of fingerprints. It is strongly suggested that fingerprinting be accomplished by a trained fingerprint technician, either through your local law enforcement agency or a private fingerprinting business. Your Concealed Handgun Safety Instructor may make provisions for this service. Even though your fingerprints may have been done before, and may be on file with the FBI, they will have to be submitted again.
