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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
