Arkansas CHCL
(Concealed Handgun Carry License) 

If you want to carry a concealed firearm for personal protection as a resident of Arkansas, there are many good reasons to get your CHCL.  

There are two different types of AR CHCL available for residents.  The "Basic" license is what most responsibly armed citizens will receive. For those that want to carry concealed in more places, there is also the "Enhanced" license available.  Both of these licenses are recognized in many other states under reciprocity laws that will also allow you to legally carry a concealed firearm in those states (you must always abide by each individual states laws regarding concealed firearms while in those states - regardless of your home states laws).

AR CHCL do expire so we also offer renewal classes too.  SAFE Training, LLC works with state certified instructors that offer convenient class dates for all AR state CHCL licensing.  You can register for any of the classes by clicking the links at the bottom of this page.

In Arkansas, the governing licensing body is The Arkansas State Police.  You can use this link to go directly to their website:  https://www.dps.arkansas.gov/law-enforcement/arkansas-state-police/  

You must successfully complete a Concealed Carry Licensing Class presented by a Certified State Instructor prior to receiving your license.  You can sign up for an upcoming certified class by registering with the links at the bottom of this page.
