How to Apply for Your CCW License
This page gives you the detailed instructions on how to apply for your license after you complete the training. On this page you can get the contact information for local sheriff offices, the Ohio concealed carry application, and the Attorney General's Concealed Carry Law Summary.
Here is a youtube video Alisha made explaining why uses a laser sight for concealed carry. Kevin & Alisha both have laser sights on their carry guns. We think lasers are a great idea.
MantisX Shooting Diagnostics System
The Mantis X is a revolutionary shooting system that helps improve your shooting precision. While attached to a pistol or rifle, MantisX analyzes your shooting mechanics, diagnoses issues, and coaches you on how to improve.
The Matis X3 will work with a pistol and rifle with dry fire, CO2 pistols and live fire.
The Mantis X10 will work the same as the X3 but it will also do holster draw analysis and recoil analysis. And it can be used with shotguns and archery.

Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, Second Edition by Michael Martin
Page number references in presentation correspond to material in this book.
This Module covered ammunition information from Chapter 2 and shooting fundamentals from Chapter 3 of the course book. We hit the main points but there is more information in this book than we can possibly cover in this course.
A few of our favorite things….
There are lots of dummy round options out there. We own several brands but really like these 9mm Glock brand ones in particular. (You don’t have to have a Glock brand gun; they will work in any 9mm gun.)
Laser Training Cartridges for Your Gun
You can use these for dry fire practice in your house. These will allow you to see where the bullet will hit because of the laser dot that will flash. They have them for all major calibers. We use this with the MantisX for in home training.
There are differences in laser cartridges. The cheaper laser bore sight does not do a shot indicator, they are constantly on and just help to line up your sights. To get a shot indicator, you need a laser training cartridge. Pink Rhino and LaserLyte make good ones.
Replica Training Air Blowback Pistols
Most of the popular concealed carry style pistols have CO2 replica pistols. These are the same size and feel of the real but they can provide safe practice at your house.
We have the Sig Sauer P365 that uses CO2 cartridge so it has recoil and a working slide and magazine function, but it can safely be shot in the house without any projectiles. We use it to practice draw, trigger control and more. Connect the MantisX and see your shooting errors.
We also have the Walther PPQ that uses green gas (similar to CO2 but you refill the gas instead of replacing a cartridge).
These are a great way to teach kids how to shoot safely in the comfort of your home.
The best training air pistols have “blowback” (moving slide). The green gas has a lower pressure than the CO2 so less recoil and noise. You also must refill the magazine with gas more often than you have to change out the CO2 cartridges. On mine, having multiple magazines allows you to practice magazine changes.
This is our FAVORITE tool! Seriously, the technology is nothing short of AMAZING. It is an investment but it will pay for itself in ammo savings.
10 minutes using the Mantis for dry fire at home a few times a week can give more improvement in your shooting than a $40+ trip the range ($20 for a lane plus $20+ for a 2 boxes of ammo). It’s hard to improve your shooting when you don’t know exactly why you’re hitting where you hit. The Mantis shows you exactly what you are doing.
The Mantis X3 also works for live fire. So when you do go pay to shoot at the range, you can use this technology to get more value from your time and money. You’ll be able to analyze your shooting. (The Mantix X is about $20-$30 cheaper but doesn’t allow for live fire… I would highly recommend going for the X3!)
We sell the Mantis X3. We offer shipping for a fee. We also have the option to do pick-up at no charge. It’s also available to purchase from Amazon.
Get the MatisX and Start Hitting Bulleyes!
Buy the the best training tool on the market. This works for both pistols and rifles.
For each shot, MantisX detects the direction of the barrel movement during the trigger pull. If you tend to shoot left, left sector will light up on the wheel. After a few shots, the training device shows the pattern of your movement.
It teaches you how to fix your errors though videos and pictures with explanations.
