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 .

Wow.....What a rewarding experience. The class is very informative and you learn quite a bit about gun safety and your right to carry. They even have a lawyer who gives you legal advise so that you don’t make common ccw mistakes your first time. I will say you MUST pay attention as the information presented is important and can Potential save your life one day and possibles the life of the suspect. The range is outdoors and is full of experienced people who come from various disciplines. They teach you not only your shooting stance but also assist you what your aim and take time to tell you how you can improve your shot and response time. This day was long but it was the best 8hrs ever and an investment I truly believe will benefit me in the days months and years to come. Kevin thank you for being there for people and their 2nd amendment rights and god bless your business your team and the work you do to protect our rights.

Very well run. Class material is broken up between lectures and videos. Topics cover the basic CC information as well as what to expect in the aftermath that may involve police and the courts. The range is very well organized with plenty of experienced instructors. A big plus is their extra Pistol Sampler Experience. The sample included 14 different model/type of pistols and it is well worth the added cost. The last one I fired turned out to be the one for me! Highly recommend Armed2Defend.

I took an instructor course from Kevin. I was really impressed. Kevin is a true professional. The other instructors on the range were all top notch as well. I had the opportunity to see both in action with the concealed carry course as well when I took my test before the actual class. They have the ability to make someone completely new to firearms feel comfortable in an environment of learning and always in safety. If you're on the fence about taking a course from Armed2Defend let me encourage you. You will not regret it! Also its clear that Kevin is passionate about people learning and standing up about our 2nd amendment rights. Sign up for the NRA with Armed2Defend. Once you know the quiet comfort that comes from walking in public knowing you have the skill at arms to defend yourself and your family you'll wonder how you did it before.

The class was great. The material was taught in a manner that was very easy to understand no matter your level of knowledge on guns or the laws surrounding them was. Jamie was my instructor at the range and he was beyond GREAT! He helped me become very comfortable with shooting and my gun in our time at the range. If I ever had to take the class again I’d come back. For now I’m just giving the class away as Christmas gift.

I would recommend this class to anyone who is a first-time gun owner. All my questions were answered, I was put at ease, the class was conducted in a professional manner with excellent training materials and videos. Kevin and his staff were professional and enthusiastic regarding the successful completion of the class and all the steps involved in safe gun ownership, handling and obtaining a CCW. I appreciated the patience that was shown to me during class and first-time exposure to a firing range. After taking the class I feel confident that I would be able to do whatever was required during an actual emergency or threat because situations (and laws) that I had never considered were brought up discussed and well covered during this class. Many thanks to Kevin Sadeski his family and staff. Armed 2Defend is a first-class operation.

I work weekends and almost every range were teaching on the weekends. I was out of my time for Vacation etc to use. This range does not easily come up when you Google. After Googling for several days I came across this Range. I thought it was online by the name but it was in class. It was in a weekday Thursday which is my off day. I went there and the first person I met is his wife who is energetic and she loves guns. The whole family was very welcoming. Kevin a handsome guy was awesome in teaching the material and knowledge he held. I love you Kevin. This one place is highly recommended. I felt so comfortable being LGBT as they are so welcoming.

Armed2Defend is an established Concealed Carry training company that has successfully trained many students of all levels of experience.

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.

Class was very enjoyable and range was a blast. Instructors were informative and had really approachable way about them. It is still mostly class time so you sit most of the day but they have figured out a way to make it enjoyable and fun.No matter what, you will walk out feeling like you learned what you are supposed to know and feel that you enjoyed yourself while doing it. I will be going back for some of their other classes to higher my education and train up more.

Me and my wife was so excited to get our ccw class done on a week day and the instructors gave great knowledge from beginning to end. The attorney part helped me a lot.. Give me a much better understanding of the ccw laws. Price was very affordable and would definitely recommend this class to my friends and family...

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.

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!

One of the few classes that have an attorney to teach you the laws.

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....

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.

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.
