Enhanced Concealed Handgun Carry License (ECHCL)
The Enhanced Concealed Handgun Carry License (ECHCL) enables current ARKANSAS CHCL licensees to carry in locations prohibited with basic a CHCL license. Once an applicant or licensee has completed this enhanced training course and passed the live-fire qualification requirement, he or she will receive an Enhanced Concealed Handgun Carry License (E-CHCL). Possession of a valid E-CHCL enables you to possess and carry a concealed handgun in the certain locations that are otherwise prohibited, even with the basic CHCL.
E-CHCL enables the holder to possess and carry a concealed handgun in the following locations:
Registration for the ECHCL will work as follows:
Select the date for the class you wish to attend.
Some classes will be at large venue classrooms conducted off site in Conway. In those classes, the Live Fire Qualification (LFQ) will be segregated into several groups of shooters. Once you select the class date, you will then select the time slot you wish to perform your LFQ. LFQ groups are limited to the number of students that can shoot at one time and are allotted on a first enrolled basis.
Other classes will be held entirely at the Shoothouse USA facility. On those class dates you will not see LFQ options because we will conduct the LFQ either immediately before or immediately after the class depending on the date.
The ENHANCED Concealed Carry License allows the licensee to carry in more places than with a Basic license. For this and other Frequently Asked Questions or to view the New Laws and Rules , visit the DOWNLOADS section by clicking below
