What does Enhanced CHCL do for me?

With E-CHCL we are allowed to carry/possess a concealed handgun in Public Buildings and Facilities under 5-73-122, Public Colleges, Universities and Community Colleges, 7-12, 14, 15 & 17 in 5-73-306 Prohibited Places are no longer prohibited with certain exceptions.


Persons who do not hold an AR CHCL (and are not transferring a license from another state) would need to take the basic (5 hours) and the enhanced training (8 hours) prior to submitting their application. You would provide them with a completed training page for the basic CHCL training and a training page for the enhanced CHCL training. Everything else (fees, fingerprint cards, application processes, etc) remains the same.


Persons who hold a CHCL from another state and wish to transfer it and obtain an enhanced license are only required to complete the enhanced training (basic is recommended but not required). The transfer process remains the same (paper application, fingerprint cards, fees, etc).

NOTE: You must hold an Arkansas CHCL to obtain the privileges of the Arkansas Enhanced Concealed Handgun Carry License. Persons who hold an enhanced license issued from another state will not have the same privileges as the Arkansas enhanced but it will be honored as a basic CHCL.


Persons who hold a current Arkansas CHCL and are not within 90 days of expiration may complete the enhanced training, submit a completed replacement form, pay the $7.50 or $15.00 (depending on their age) and submit the enhanced training form to this office.


Persons who hold a current Arkansas CHCL and are within 90 days of expiration can complete the lost replacement form or it will be cheaper if they submit their enhanced training form with their renewal application and they will receive the enhancement on their renewed license.


NOTE: Adding the enhancement to the CHCL does not extend the license period, it will remain the same.

Force on Force $300

December 10 & 11, 2022

LIMIT 10-12 trainees!!! Register by payment.

Ever wonder what you'd do if a psycho with a knife charged at you? Or how you'd really handle a multiple adversary situation? Learn how to move, draw and shoot simultaneously!

Find out for certain in our interactive gun-fighting training!

Force on Force is the future of personal combat training. This course is CQB Gunfighting Skills. This class will instruct you on how to win a fight in the streets!

Typical marksmanship-based gun training leaves many questions unanswered. There is a great deal that you still don't know about street combat if all you've done is shoot paper targets on a shooting range. Even the many "shoothouse" exercises at gun schools are inadequate in preparing you for a street confrontation. In this class, our training focuses upon reality featuring high intensity, short duration combat at close range against live human beings with modern force on force technology. It is specifically designed for the private citizen and focuses on civilian street situations. Learn to defend against a single adversary bent on cutting you with a training knife, as well as against multiple adversaries suddenly drawing guns and firing at you. Learn what it takes to overcome home invaders, takeover robbers, hostage takers and active shooters! In today's environment, everyone has a need to know.

The training is open to all civilian students at any skill level, and is the sort of class you can attend over and over again to maintain your edge!! Fight-focused not Gun-focused!
