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.
23:27 08 May 19
The most professional and thorough CCW classes out there. Kevin and the crew teach you everything you need to know and things you didn’t know you needed to know! Highly recommend!
22:50 08 May 19
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.

Very professional and thorough instruction. Safe and efficient range facility. Highly recommend this company for new and experienced shooters.
16:46 07 May 19
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.
19:58 06 May 19

Great experience. Staff was friendly, helpful, and very organized. I feel a lot better about concealing/handling my weapon. Alisha took out time to show us some holsters and had great suggestions.

Words cannot express my gratitude for this awesome team of instructors. Everyone was professional and extremely safe. The amount of information and knowledge given and offered is worth far more than the asking price. I couldn’t have chosen a better group of instructors to teach me.

Absolutely amazing!! Great experience and so much good information. Would definitely recommend 🤗
02:07 17 Mar 19
Took my class today great instructors along with LOTS of learning experience . I recommend them to any & everyone 🤞🏾
13:55 10 Mar 19
the knowledge and presentation was amazing. it all really helped me to get a better understanding. I really enjoyed Stacy and his Jokes. that made it more fun easy to follow. My instructor was super helpful in understanding the workings of my gun and how to better handle it properly and safely. I am pleased though i wish i had a little more one on one time. Everything was great though. Keep it up. I will recommend you guys all day!
02:24 10 Mar 19
Took the class with Kevin before he even had the covered range, 8 years ago! He was great then and has only gotten bigger and better. Had the honor of watching my Son follow in my footsteps and take the class today. Watching Jeff Scudder’s intermediate range facilitation was awesome! Excellent work and Highly Recommend! In fact, looking for advance training right after this review!
13:28 09 Mar 19
Great bunch of people! Lots of different trainings available. Jeff Scudder is one of the Lead Defensive Instructors, in my opinion he might be one of the best in the country! By the time you leave your session--you retain the phenomenal training techniques! Life Changing.
19:41 08 Mar 19
The instructors were great. Answered any and all questions, gave very valuable information. They take gun safety very serious which is important. Overall great experience i will always recommend.
14:17 08 Mar 19
My CCW class was too notch .Well organized with plenty of instructor on the range .I would recommend Armed2Defend to anyone.
05:34 08 Mar 19
05:19 08 Mar 19
03:32 08 Mar 19
I loved this class it was very informative and the people were helpful and lunch was great 😜but aside from that it really helped me be more comfortable with my gun and after the class when you go the the gun range there gun range it was just as good and the people there were just as helpful...... I loved it and I would definitely recommend them
01:59 08 Mar 19
Very well organized, no wasted time at all. Classes are very informative and the time goes past quickly. But my favorite part of the day was the range time. The instructor had plenty of tips and insight. They also had some great practice drills for future range time. I highly recommend Armed2defend and will go back for more classes in the future.
01:52 08 Mar 19
23:55 07 Mar 19
Excellent experience would and have recommended them to friends and family
23:47 07 Mar 19
00:25 07 Mar 19
Took the ccw class today with Armed 2 Defend and I couldn’t suggest any one better love the class and how open eared they are and will to take all questions and make sure we not only know the safety of concealing a weapon but knowing your rights and what todo if you have use your firearms
19:57 04 Mar 19
The instructors were very informative. They do a great job of keeping the mood light and somewhat entertaining. And the talk from Ken the Attourney is very good. Not to mention the sheriffs office said they are one of the best.
23:36 27 Feb 19
I loved the class! Great people! Great experience!
23:24 24 Feb 19
Excellent program with emphasis on legal responsibilities.
21:58 24 Feb 19
My husband and I both took our class yesterday. The instructors are amazing. It's not some boring fall asleep class. The added aspect of a presentation from a lawyer who knows Ohio firearm laws AND is an NRA instructor is a great bonus. Thank you Stacy and Glenn for making our experience a good one and answering our questions and being patient with us!
20:20 23 Feb 19
There are good people and good companies I recommend this armed2defend and I was fun
14:41 20 Feb 19
Friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable that will deliver a great experience!
18:55 17 Feb 19
Great training, very thorough. Can't beat the price for what you receive. Instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. Will be coming back for advanced training. Kevin and his staff are awesome.
18:35 17 Feb 19
Great class. Great instruction. Definitely want to get more instruction and take more classes.
15:46 17 Feb 19
It was very good choice going to themFor my ccw. They are polite and they know what they doing.
01:17 07 Feb 19
Great atmosphere and safe throughout. They had enough instruction for one on one learning. Great job guys!
23:49 06 Feb 19
Small class on a weekday made it very personal and friendly. I had a good time!
05:31 22 Jan 19
Great instructor an very knowledgeable!
19:03 20 Jan 19
Very knowledgeable instructors. The instructor has greatly interacted with all the students at the range and classroom. Great for beginner to expert. The drive to the range is short. The range nice and covered and pretty warm considering it was just covered range. You will laugh, learn and meet great people and learn so much. One of the few classes that have an attorney to teach you the laws.
13:23 20 Jan 19
Fun class, easy to understand, no pressure, very relaxed very knowledgable of their training, patient, friendy, and affordable price.
19:26 14 Jan 19
It is worth the money to attain knowledge of the rules and ramifications of conceal and carry law also the shooting range time was fun. Glad I did this.
01:37 10 Jan 19
19:55 04 Jan 19
Kevin and his staff are amazing. He is very knowledgeable on giving you the right info so that you feel safe and stay out out trouble. They have a great attorney that comes in and speaks for a hour to info you of the dos and donts. Would definetly recommend anyone looking to getting der CCW to come here. Not to mention if you go to franklin county sheriff to get your licence the staff knows kevin and speaks highly of him....
22:37 31 Dec 18
My wife, mother-in-law and myself all greatly enjoyed the class and the day. We were especially happy with attorney Ken's law presentation. He makes you think about things most won't realize are factors in self-defense with a weapon. Stacy was entertaining as heck in the classroom and outstanding on the range. I feel like I learned a lot in both the lecture and especially on the range.For anyone considering the course, if you have your own firearm, bring it! If you are familiar with it, you can get the "Intermediate Instruction" instead of the beginner. If you don't own one, they'll provide one for you that is easy to handle. It's a great first step in learning what you must do to save your own life. I am now looking into the other classes they have to offer so I can further improve my self-defense abilities!Again, I truly enjoyed the class, and appreciate the effort Armed2Defend has put into making the process of getting the CHL as smooth and pain-free as possible.
03:58 03 Dec 18
So nice people thank you so much
16:21 27 Nov 18
One of the best handgun courses ever!!! The instructors are very knowledgeable
01:18 26 Nov 18
Outstanding training. Legal instruction by Attorney who knows the ccw law.
16:54 23 Nov 18
I took the CCW class almost two years ago. Since then, my wife and two of our friends have taken the class as well. I have and will continue to recommend Armed2Defend to anyone interested in getting their CCW. As others have mentioned, Ken's legal presentation is top notch and helps to get you in the right mindset for carrying on a regular basis. He hits a lot of the main areas that get people into trouble. The entire staff of trainers and range officers were very friendly and helpful.If you look hard enough you 'might' find a class cheaper somewhere else, or maybe somebody your buddy's uncle's friend knows said he'd certify you cheap. Why skimp on something so important? I doubt you will find better training anywhere in central Ohio even if you paid more. The state requires 12 hours of instruction, so you might as well make it count. You will learn something regardless of your experience level. The legal presentation alone is worth the price.
01:58 21 Nov 18
Awesome experience! Would definitely recommend taking your CCW class at Armed2Defend or any of there other classes. Very friendly and experienced instructors.
00:50 14 Nov 18
02:42 12 Nov 18

14:17 11 Nov 18
Very good class , instructors were very knowledgeable and very safety oriented. Had a great time and learned alot. Thank you all for the great day of learning !!
23:54 07 Nov 18
I received my CCW after attending their class 6 years ago, and I was satisfied with the knowledge and experience I gained through Armed2Defend.... I took my mom for her 60th birthday present this past July☺ The worlds getting a little crazier everyday..got to make sure she is safe!My 25 year old daughter is next!
16:42 06 Nov 18
Great instructors plus learning Ohio Conceal carry laws.
00:45 04 Nov 18
Received my CHL certificate from Armed2defend today. It was a wonderful experience. I learned so much and had a lot of fun!! All the instructors and staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely will be back for some more training!!
21:10 02 Nov 18
I have taken both the concealed carry course and the NRA pistol qualification course. The instructors have always been professional and always strive for a safe fun experience for all shooters. I highly recommend this program for anyone looking to get a ccw or just tightening your shooting groups.
18:09 01 Nov 18

14:51 26 Aug 18
Outstanding CCW Course and Instructors.

01:53 29 Jul 18
13:55 25 Jul 18
Great class, best thing is they have staff for each part of the process. They have a class instructor, legal expert, and guys on the range. This set up is great due to the fact that you don't have some jack of all trades trying to do it all.
01:22 25 Jul 18
This class is great for anyone! I took this class with no experience with firearms at all and I feel a lot more comfortable and knowledgeable. The instructors were very informative and made the experience very fun. I am look f forward to taking more classes on firearms in the near future.

23:24 24 Jul 18
Very professional and very helpful. I was nervous about attending this since I have no experience with a firearm at all. I had a great time and feel more comfortable with a gun now and will continue to take classes on defense with a firearm.
16:34 09 Jul 18
First impression’s mean a lot... I will never forget this one!!!
03:46 09 Jul 18
Top notch instruction! I highly recommend this company. I took my CCW class through them and then followed up and joined a women’s pistol group once a month. I absolutely love it!!!
01:35 08 Jul 18
Very professional and it was a very fun class. I LOVED the fact that they were very BIG on safety, especially since this was my first time using and firing a firearm. They make sure that you are comfortable and confident while handling the firearm and that your aim is on point. Definitely recommend this course!!!

I just finished the basic pistol class needed for a CHL and it was amazing. The instructors were so helpful and answered all questions that I had (no matter how silly they were). The range instructors were just as awesome and made me feel very comfortable with shooting (this was only my third time shooting a gun). I highly recommend buying the pistol sampler package for anyone who is looking into buying their own hand gun. It’s only $35 and I got to shoot about 18 different guns to see what I liked and didn’t like. I feel much more confident about going and purchasing a firearm now that I have an idea about how specific ones shoot. I can’t wait to try one of their Women’s Pistol Group this summer!
17:53 19 Jun 18
Stacey was fantastic in class and at the range. If you have had some training with your gun I highly recommend doing the intermediate shooting during the shooting portion of the concealed carry training it is fun, you get a good training on reacting fast and being put under pressure by the instructor. Great experience getting the glasses done plus it’s a great price compared to the other places.
01:53 14 Jun 18
Best class and people you can find. (and they have a working German Shepard thats to die for...Beautiful dog! ) Top quality people here.....

11:22 16 May 18
Had a great class yesterday. They really take the time to go through it all. The instructors are great and I gained a lot of information from this class. If you are new to the world of shooting they will help you get started. Your intermediate they will push you on the Range for you to feel what it's like to shoot under stress. For you new people just remember the only dumb question is the one not asked because they will give you an answer to any of them.

Excellent instruction material, very friendly and knowledgeable instructors, extremely safe range. The class was large, but there were more than enough range instructors to provide personal attention. No wonder Armed2Defend is top rated! I'm so glad my husband and I chose them to get our CHL certificate. We both had a great time!
16:03 28 Apr 18
I attended the Armed2Defend carry class in March of '18. Signup and payment online was painless. Class availability was also plentiful with multiple dates open. Upon arrival the day got off to a good start. My personal folder was prepared with all of my class materials. Instructors took our "passport" photographs prior to class beginning and had them printed for us by the end of the day. Instructors were knowledgeable and did a nice jobof keeping the class moving. The classroom material is basic and will be 2nd nature if you're at all familiar with handguns. The legal portion of the class was informative but unfortunately for us the lawyer was recovering from an injury and we watched a recording of a prior session. Good information also provided around USCCA, NRA, and handgun accessories (safes, holsters, etc). I had the pleasure of shooting at the range under the direction of Jeff Scudder and he was top notch!! Jeff's attn to detail and instruction was above and beyond. He led the "advanced" shooters and was intense, thorough, and extremely personable. I'd recommend these guys if you're in the market for getting your certificate for a concealed handgun permit. Painless process and well organized from beginning to end.

The instructors took their time to ensure I was ready. So glad I chose Amrmed2defend as I'm armed with all the information needed for my CHL.
01:47 10 Apr 18
Had a great time...great instructors and staff with a lot of knowledge...and the law portion was a good benefit of the class...will refer other people...thanks for the experience!!!
01:12 10 Apr 18
Had a great time taking this class. Kevin was a great teacher both in the classroom and on the range. Kevin took time at the range to work with me to help correct some trigger pull issues I was having. Was going low left all day and after 15 minutes with him I was hitting center. Thank you so much to the whole staff at Armed2Defend and especially to Kevin!
23:10 08 Apr 18

Had an amazing experience learned exactly what We needed to know plus more.. Stacy was awesome � great personality. The instructor we had was A-1. Everyone involved was excellent. We hung out for a bit afterwards talking and felt completely comfortable asking questions and we received the information we needed. Thank so much to everyone. Your a great team with great personalities that made us feel comfortable. Can not say thank you enough. Look forward to attending Thursday night for the ladies.
02:17 22 Mar 18
It was my wife's first time ever shooting a pistol and the staff made her feel safe and comfortable. The class was educational even for experienced shooters like myself and you can't beat the price.
13:54 18 Mar 18
11:22 14 Mar 18
My girlfriend and I had a great time in this class! She is a beginner and I’ve been around guns for the majority of my life however we both were able to learn a lot and have fun while doing it. The staff maintains a responsible positive attitude towards the entire process but is not over barring and allows for the student to learn. On top of all that it’s priced very well for the training and for the attention you will receive. 5/5
03:36 14 Mar 18
Fantastic instructors! Great class! Can't thank them enough!
03:29 14 Mar 18
Absolutely amazing. Great people full of knowledge and amazing instructors at the range. I highly suggest Armed2Defend.
01:51 14 Mar 18
Just took the CCW class. The instructors are amazing and answered every question we had.The class was extremely informative, I learned so much. A big thank you to all of the instructors (Sonya, Kevin, and Stacy) who worked with us today!
03:28 13 Mar 18
Awesome instructors and a great class to take. great law portion as well which isn't standard for most CCW classes. Highly recommend them if your interested in getting your permit. I look forward to going to Kevin to further my training with some of his other classes he offers as well
22:57 11 Mar 18
I took my class in 2015 and all of the instructors took the training very seroius, in making sure everyone in the class, had the proper training and understand of seriousness, of the responsibility and liability of handling and carrying a loaded gun! I appreciate all the training each instructor provided, while taking the cousre! I'd also like to thank Kevin as the onwner of Armed2Defend, for taking such a personal and serious interest, with every individual in the class! Keep up the great work guys, in providing and helping to protect our 2nd right amendment! Thanks, Don Jarrell
04:05 11 Mar 18
Excellent place to train, excellent place to take advanced training along with taking the NRA marksmanship program. They have an informed attorney teach part of the CC class. A real tangible asset to understand how the law in Ohio works! Kevin and company are the best at what they do!
03:06 11 Mar 18
Great staff and instructors . I would suggest this course to anyone seeking their ccw
21:19 08 Mar 18
Took the course last year. Super organized and stays on topic! Very informative from all angles to include commentary from an Attorney! Highly recommend! 5/5! My only comment/concern would be the amount of cell phone usage while on the range...eyes and mind should focused on only one thing...just my humble opinion and did not detract from my own experience...
13:58 05 Mar 18
I just took my class 3/3/18 and it was a great time and experience again I would do it over and over again also will suggest it to as many people as possible. Thanks Ken 👍👍👍👍👍 I give it a five star and five thumbs up........
03:08 05 Mar 18

Took Kevin's class with my son, both of us are experienced shooters. Kevin's staff are an excellent group of professional's. He gives you all you need to pass the CCL test and the range guys are first rate. Safety is first priority, bar none. You are not safe, you WILL be corrected. The range officer (Stan) in my group was stellar. Excellent advice and no nonsense. Kevin has a First rate attorney that has a long history defending firearm ownership (Ken Hanson) present a basic understanding of CCL & firearms law. It is very informative and you NEED to pay attention, as it is the beginning of understanding the responsibility of CCW. He keeps it interesting and can answer anything. Kevin teaches basics for the beginner, up to advanced training to continue improving how to safely handle a firearm. Overall, wish I could give him 6 or 7 stars. A no frills, very professional firearms training instructor, who I would highly recommend.

Honestly before I went I didn’t know what to expect . I’m a 22yr old “urban” male and didn’t know if there were going to be judgy instructors , uppity people etc. but once I stepped through the doors it all went out the window . It’s literally a mix of every type of person out there . No one is left out , I seen there’s no judgement on how experienced you were, either way they would work to get you where you need to be. The instructors were informative , experienced and willing to answer any and all questions. But also even though this is serious business they made a way to make it enjoyable . I’m pretty knowledgeable with firearms and things of that nature but even with that I learned ALOT . Sometimes even from others in my class asking questions . I don’t usually do reviews but my experience made me feel as if this deserved a review and also to help if anyone feels how I did before attending JUST DO IT YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! I never once felt unsafe even with inexperienced shooters around me that’s how good the staff is . If I could 10 stars . Great job guys if I needed to I would do it again . CCW holder for 4 months now . Thanks a lot guys and gals !!!!!!

Had a good time learning firearm safety in an extremely efficient way. All instruction was clear and concise, and the ratio of instructors to students made me feel safe the entire time on the range.

15:48 18 Feb 18
Well organized from the time they help you park when you arrive until you receive your certificate. Great instructors including presentation by an attorney. Took intermediate level class on the range which was outstanding. Extremely safety oriented on the range. Learned alot yesterday and glad I chose armed2defend
12:13 18 Feb 18
They were very organized, from the parking attendants to the certificate being handed out at the end of the day. It was very informative regarding laws, guns and ammo. They had a lawyer present to answer our questions and explain the CCW laws. I am glad I took the intermediate shooting. Thanks to : George, Kevin,Sonya, Jeff, Roger, Jamie, Attorney Ken Hanson and the rest of the team.

21:52 27 Jan 18
Class was very thorough and organized. All of the instructors were very helpful and encouraged questions and feedback. Cost is about half of other CCW classes in the Central Ohio area. Would highly recommend this place if interested in obtaining a CCW license.
14:05 22 Jan 18
Great place to learn and awesome instructors that will work hard to make sure you understand everything you need!

The entire staff was great, very professional and knowledgeable. I left the class feeling very confident about carrying a concealed handgun. Classroom time was very informative (as it should be), including the legal portion provided by one of the top gun lawyers in central Ohio. The range time exceeded my expectations. Groups were split in two, intermediate (have fired handguns before and wanted a bit more intensive training) and beginner (never fired a handgun or needed to master basic handling skills). Highly recommended!!!Thanks Armed 2 Defend!

It was minus 1 degree out there but it was so fun and worth it!!! There were some stragglers who didn’t seem to care about the temps and just took their time but the owner stepped in and called a cease fire on them and gave us our certificate and sent us on our way. This is a family operation and it is well organized from beginning to end. I agree with the other reviewers I’ll call my classmates that it was well worth it and I would recommend anyone looking to get their CCW to check out Armed 2 Defend and you will be glad you did. Great job guys���

GREAT class. The instructors keep your attention and make sure you understand the information. The shooting range was FRIGID but, there were plenty of heaters. Kevin and Cody kept walking through to make sure everyone was ok. I would recommend Armed2Defend to ANYONE wanting GREAT instruction.
12:59 24 Dec 17

Great experience! Would highly recommend any of Arm2Defend's trainers.
15:11 03 Dec 17
I was in the Ohio National Guard for 26 years, was not required to take the CCL classes but so glad I did. Even with my extensive knowledge of firearms, this class provided me valuable information to advance my small arms knowledge. Class was very informative, time spent at the range was invaluable and the chance to fire over 15 different weapons helped me make my decision on what gun would be best for me. Kevin and his crew are exemplary and I highly recommend Armed2Defend. Thanks to all, i picked up my CCL yesterday, money and time well spent.

I took this course with my niece who wanted to get her concealed carry. After spending 22-years in the U.S. military I did not expect much from the training. I was pleasantly surprised! This course is complete and in my opinion, a great purchase.
23:44 21 Nov 17
Awesome instructors, informative , friendly and knowledgeable

The Armed2Defend class was the best and most informative class. I strongly suggest that if you are thinking about getting the concealed carry permit, this would be the place to go. I am a resident of Florida and took the class in Ohio. When I got back to Florida, I took the certificate and presented it to the DMV and they immediately filed for the permit. The lady also said she had heard about Kevin Sadeski’s class and that it was exceptional. I agree!!! Gail Evanguelidi

I am so glad that my mother and I chose armed2defend for our concealed carry class. It was an excellent choice! Every single instructor is knowledgeable and patient. No question is a stupid question. When it came to range time, they really take the time to pay attention to your form and help you improve and be a better shooter. Thank you!! I’ll definitely be back for a self defense shooting class.

Very knowledgeable staff. They made class fun and educational. The instructors at the range were also very helpful. They took time to show you how to use a gun properly and gave you tips on hitting your target too. Thanks to all the staff!

21:48 01 Nov 17
The concealed carry class that I took at armed2defend was very informative on the current laws in the state of Ohio... a large part of it I already knew because of my private police training but I chose to humble myself and not let it be known of my past experience with firearm training... instructor Stacy Duncan was very professional and very informative not only in the class but at the firing range as well... I would highly give my recommendation to armed2defend for those that's seeking a carry conceal permit...Thanks Grady Cooper,Westerville Ohio
14:51 01 Nov 17
I had an outstanding day of learning in a classroom setting as well as on the range. Top rate instruction all around. I would recommend it to anyone and have already done so to my friends. You can't go wrong for the money.....also invest in the sample pack!
09:24 01 Nov 17
This is the best place ever!!!

Amazing place to take your concealed carry class. Sure, it didn't have an indoor range like some places brag about and unless it's really cold outside, their outdoor covered range absolutely perfect. I now have my concealed carry license thanks to them.

22:01 28 Oct 17
