Great price, great instructors, great experience. I was 8 months pregnant when I took the CCW class and couldn’t do the shooting portion at that time, but they worked with me and let me make it up at a later date. Thankful for all the A2D staff for their hard work!

The staff was kind, professional, involved, educated and fun. We have recommended all of our friends and family to Armed2defend. We were so happy we went them.

I recieved my training for CCW instructor at Amed2Defend a few years back which has in turn enabled me to train many Ohio Patriots to carry in self defense including a class with just over 100 students. The instructors were very professional and knowledgeable and conducted an awesome atmosphere to learn a lot. I would recommend this group highly!

I took the Concealed Carry Class several years, ago. It was a great learning experience. The instructors treated us kindly and courteously. The range was a great experience. I do not understand how foolishly our state legislature is acting in it's proposal to give "carte blanche" authority to Ohio residents to carry without training and without full understanding of the law. More recently, I sent my wife and daughter to your school.

I found the experience to be very professional and informative. The instructors were great and took time with my wife as she had very little experience on a formal setting range. The classroom time was spot on and the legal information great. I would recommend Armed2Defend to anyone serious about how to defend yourself legally.
