The Paragould Police Department in association with Black River Technical College is scheduling a Concealed Handgun License Class on August 24, 2013, beginning at 8 am, weather permitting. Should there be any changes to this schedule, we will post the changes prior to class. Please contact Black River Technical College HERE for more details, and to register for the class. The class will be instructed by Chief Todd Stovall (AR CHCL Instructor # 95-231) Captain Phillip Faulkner (AR CHCL Instructor # 95-227) and Captain Greg Trout (AR CHCL Instructor # 95-233).
We host classes at least one a month, weather permitting. Watch our Calendar of events for class announcements.

Items Needed For Class:
In the classroom, all handouts and the application will be provided. The only thing needed will be a black ink pen and your Arkansas Drivers License or State I.D. card. PLEASE LEAVE FIREARMS AND AMMO SECURED IN YOUR VEHICLE AT ALL TIMES DURING CLASSROOM TRAINING.
We will complete the State Application in class and an instructor will go over it in class.
Items Needed For Range:
You will need your firearm (Note: If your firearm is a revolver, you will receive a restricted license, meaning a revolver is the only firearm you are allowed to carry)
We suggest a minimum of 50 rounds of ammunition. (Our course of fire is 20 rounds for qualification)
We do have eye and ear protection if you do not have your own.
Upon completion of the class and successful range qualification, you will send in your application packet, fingerprints and a check or money order in the amount of $147.25 to the Arkansas State Police Regulatory Division. Your license will be valid for 5 years.
Watch our web site for updated class information. We are planning a Basic Firearms Class in the near future. It is not part of the Concealed Carry Class. It will be designed for the novice shooter.
The class will be instructed by Chief Todd Stovall (AR CHL Instructor # 95-231) Captain Phillip Faulkner (AR CHL Instructor # 95-227) and Captain Greg Trout (AR CHL Instructor # 95-233).
