Armed2Defend is one of best firms that train on carry concealed as well as all NRA firearms levels as well as Range officers and Safety officers. Their private rang is a nice facility to shoot at and their instructors have th patience of Job. Excellent Central Ohio facility and enterprise. When completing the CCW class and applying for the permit, they take the extra step of helping you secure one for AZ (for Ohio residents) so you can carry legally in all States that allow it and don't have to worry about Ohio having reciprocity. Kevin and his team are the best.

Great ccw classes the instructors are very helpful and patient with all different levels of experience. The range that they have is also great. I recommend all who ask to use armed2defend. I have not had an opportunity to take advantage of the other classes that are available but from what I see as I follow them is very good so I recommend that if you want a great program and feel confident in your gun handling skills to take any if not all of the courses available. The more you learn and practice the better prepared you will be if you should need to protect yourself and family. I thank you A2D for the knowledge and I will continue to train when I get to AZ.

My wife and I took the Armed2Defend Concealed Carry course on the recommendation of a friend and we are very happy we did. The class was conducted in a professional manner and we were encouraged to participate with questions and comments. The use of the private range was a plus and we encourage anyone contemplating taking a Concealed Carry course or other firearms skills classes to contact Armed2Defend.

I've been a tin can and target shooter since I was 10 and you pickup a lot of unsafe bad habits in that time. It took Armed2Defend to point them out and show me the correct ways. The experience without doubt made me a safer and batter gun owner and shot. Thank you.
