Arkansas allows any adult who is legally qualified to carry a firearm to do so either openly or concealed. The Arkansas State Police do still issue concealed carry permits for interested individuals though.
If you are an Arkansas resident who wishes to conceal and carry in another state, you may want to consider getting your CCW permit. In order to do so, you will need to take a CCW permit certification class, which we offer at Concealed Coalition.
Concealed Coalition’s online and in-person training courses are taught by a highly experienced team of instructors across the nation. Each course is state-specific, allowing you to learn about the rules and regulations in your area. Not knowing your state’s laws is not an excuse for not following them, which is why learning about state and local laws is an extremely important part of being a responsible firearm owner and carrier.
Whether you don’t carry often or you would like to participate in Arkansas conceal and carry, being a responsible gun owner also includes knowing how to safely handle and store your firearm. In any Concealed Coalition class, we cover the essentials of firearm operation in order to teach proper handling of a gun, and we emphasize the importance of child access prevention in the home.
Our instructors often use scenario-based training techniques in the classroom. They draw on their diverse personal experiences to present students with situations that make them think critically about how to proceed. By training in this way in a controlled environment, it sets up students for success when it comes to critical thinking and decision making in a high stress situation.
Acquiring a concealed carry permit is not just about meeting legal requirements; it is a commitment to ensuring the safety of oneself and others in the community. Firearm safety training like what we offer at Concealed Coalition provides the necessary knowledge and skills to handle firearms responsibly, make sound decisions in critical situations, and respect the gravity of carrying a concealed weapon. By prioritizing firearms safety training, we hope to foster a culture of responsible gun ownership and contribute to the overall well-being of communities across the country.
