AR – TRAINING – Mastering the Arkansas Enhanced CHCL Qualification

THERE ARE TWO LEVELS OF ARKANSAS CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY LICENSES, AS THEY ARE CALLED IN ARKANSAS. THE BASIC LICENSE DOESN’T HAVE MUCH OF A PROFICIENCY REQUIREMENT. THE STUDENT JUST HAS TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE SAFE WITH A FIREARM, NOT REALLY ANY ACTUAL PROFICIENCY. FOR THE ENHANCED LICENSE, THERE IS AN ACTUAL QUALIFICATION STANDARD. IT IS STILL FAIRLY BASIC, AND GIVEN ANY DECENT SKILL LEVEL, IT SHOULD BE AN EASY STANDARD TO MEET. THIS HAPPENS TO BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY QUALIFICATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SCORING.
