Do not bring a firearm when applying for
or picking up your concealed handgun license. You don't
have a CCW license to conceal carry until
after you physically have the concealed
handgun license in
hand. The license is designed similar
to a driver's license.
Why So "Cheap"?
Why does Armed2Defend offer
all of this for less then any other
CCW training company? Lead
Instructor Kevin Sadeski believes
that Ohio becomes safer with every
responsible citizen who receives
their concealed handgun license and
who carries a pistol confidently.
Unfortunately, the freedom
of concealed carry has
become a big business and
therefore it has become less
attainable to some due to
high cost instruction. In order
to open the freedom to more
people, he and others have
worked hard to keep the
class fee to a minimum while
still providing top quality
concealed carries in Ohio,
the criminal's workplace
becomes more hostile and our
life becomes more safe.
