BASIC Concealed carry Live Fire:

Live Fire must be done in order to receive a new BASIC Arkansas Concealed Carry license or to renew an Arkansas Concealed Carry license.  Our targets are 21 feet away and you will need to bring atleast 20 rounds.  This is more of a safe handling test.  If you have never shot a gun before that is fine I will work with you on your class date so you get the proper training and allow you to come back to one of our next classes to do the shooting part all by yourself to complete your class.  I want to help "experts" and "newbies" alike.  We accept students of all levels beginner, intermediate, expert and am 100% sure you will gain insightful training ideas and techniques from this class.

Enhanced Concealed Carry Live Fire

The course of fire involved making shots on a full-size B-27 target (see bottom of article for example), at different specified distances, within certain specified times.  You will fire a total of 50 rounds and must score a 70% (35/50) to pass.  You get three attempts.  If you fail the three attempts, you must wait 90 days to take the class (not just the test...the whole class) again.  (Don't worry, we aren't going to charge you multiple times for the class)

I find this causes people some stress, but this is very much within their capabilities.  It may take a little work, but you know us.  We're here to help you be successful.

The course of fire is as follows:

(1)  Stage 1: 3 yard line – 20 Rounds
       (A)  5 shots fired in a “one shot exercise” – 2 seconds allowed for each shot;
       (B)  10 shots fired in a “two shot exercise” – 3 seconds allowed for each 2 shot sequence;
       (C)  5 shots fired in 10 seconds;

(2)  Stage 2: 7 yard line – 20 rounds
       (A)  5 shots fired in 10 seconds
       (B)  5 shots fired in 2 stages: 
                        (i)  2 shots fired in 4 seconds;
                        (ii)  3 shots fired in 6 seconds;
       (C)  5 shots fired in a “one shot exercise” – 3 seconds allowed for each shot;
       (D)  5 shots fired in 15 seconds;

(3)  Stage 3: 15 yard line – 10 rounds
       (A) 5 shots fired in 2 stages:
                        (i)  2 shots fired in 6 seconds;
                        (ii)  3 shots fired in 9 seconds;
       (B)  5 shots fired in 15 seconds;

All shots are fired from the "Ready" position.  Reloads aren't timed.  "Hits" are shots that either fall inside the 7 ring or cut the line of the 7 ring.  There are no firearm, larger than .22 caliber, or equipment (laser) restrictions.  Any shots that happen outside the time result in a -1 to your total score.

You need to practice for this test, but you don't need to stress about it.  It is well within everyone's capabilities.  Remember, we are here to help you be successful.

The shooting portion, as outlined above, are the only "physical" parts of the course.  Don't let age and disability prevent you from taking the course.
