You're in good hands.

We understand that many people are new to firearms. Our course covers basic handgun safety and operation. For those wanting more in depth training we also offer the NRA Basic Pistol Course and the NRA Firearm Safety in the Home course.

Education is key to confidence!


"When I first started the process for CCL, I was nervous. Lars is an exceptional instructor, he explained the laws so I could understand them. He was very clear on what I needed to know and how it applied to me. On the range, Lars was a patient, calm instructor. Thank you LRCC, especially Lars. I will definitely recommend this class to my friends!" ~R.C.
"I found the CHL class at Little Rock Concealed Carry to be very informative. Mr. Turpen and Mr. Boyne take a no nonsense approach and do a great job of discussing the law and give great information about the operation of varying types of firearms. If you are considering applying for your CHL, I would highly recommend taking their class. They are also very competitive in pricing, at least $25-50 less expensive than other classes I checked out. Two thumbs up!" ~B.H.

"Extremely thorough - completely satisfied - interesting and informative - thank you so very much for all you did for us." ~S.P.
"I found LRCC online. Signing up for a class was easy and both of the instructors were very knowledgeable and easy to approach with questions. I particularly appreciated their ability to teach the material without the politics. I've recommended them to several of my friends and I would recommend them to anyone in the Little Rock area who wants to learn more about concealed carry or get their license." ~J.A.K.

"I am very pleased with the quality of concealed carry training received from LRCC. The class was especially helpful in learning laws associated with concealed carry. The description of and examples of various guns was helpful in making a decision on what to carry for self protection. I am extremely grateful for the time and attention given to me during range qualifying. I now feel confident as a licensed concealed carry holder." ~R.D.R.
"Clear and concise instruction of the relevant laws, picked up some tips for home defense, how to avoid a situation and improved my shooting stance at the range! Fingerprint processing was a breeze. Thanks guys, I'll be telling my friends." ~J.S.

I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it. ~ Clint Eastwood
