I highly recommend Armed2Defend for your CCW training. It blew me away how professional and courteous the staff were in teaching you from the ground up the essentials you need to acquire your license. It was definitely evident how much they care and have pride in their organization. They are a blessing to our community and I am looking forward to advanced training in the future. This is literally one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I highly recommend this class. The instructors are expert in their delivery of the material and go above and beyond to make sure you understand Ohio laws regarding conceal carry. The time spent at the range was incredible, making sure you know how to shoot safely and that you are comfortable with your firearm, recognizing flaws, correcting those flaws and moving forward. This was really just the best class. Sign up...you will not be disappointed .

First class training. I've gone through 3 of their NRA training programs and learned a lot in each one. Instructors work with you so you get the most out of the time you spend.
