Ohio CCW Class Training Updates

What is the Ohio Concealed Carry (CCW, CHL) Training?

Ohio has a concealed handgun license (CHL) but most people refer to it as a CCW license or a concealed carry license. This allows you to carry a concealed handgun in public. There are restrictions on where and how you can carry. The Ohio Attorney General publishes a summary of the concealed carry (CCW) and self-defense laws in Ohio. This license gives you more abilities to carry a gun than open carry.

 

How do you get an Ohio CCW License?

To simplify, here are the three main steps to get the Ohio CCW license. Click here to get more detailed steps to get your CCW license

First, you have to verify that you can qualify for the license. You have to be at least 21 and have a clean background.

Second, you must complete the 8-hour required Ohio CCW training. This gun safety training is broken down into classroom and range training. At least 2 hours of the training must be on a live-fire range. In most cases, active and military veterans can skip the CCW training requirement.

Third, apply for the CCW license with the sheriff’s department. Their fee is $67 and you pay that when you apply.

Armed2Defend has trained over 19,000 for the Ohio CCW license. Trust our experience for your CCW training. Click here to see details on our Ohio CCW Training.

August 31, 2019 Ohio CCW Class at Armed2Defend

This Ohio CCW course was the last Saturday of August. It was a fun group of CCW students for sure! They were very interactive and made it a memorable day. We also had light rain during the CCW range time. But the covered range kept us protected and it went unnoticed.

 

Nick Imes from USCCA Presented!

Armed2Defend was excited to be the first CCW class in the Columbus Ohio area to welcome Nick Imes from the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA). Nick discussed different self-defense cases where the USCCA helped their members legally and financially. Here are two examples where the USCCA helped its members after using a gun in self-defense. Kerri Ann’s Story in Florida. Bruce’s store from protecting someone in his community. The USCCA provides the best aftermath support and training to protect their members financially and legally.

Four of the CCW students chose to protect themselves with the USCCA membership.

 

Ohio CCW Students Received the Best Instruction!

Instructors Kevin Sadeski and James (Stacy) Duncan taught the classroom portion of the Ohio CCW training.

Jamie Martin was the Range Safety Officer (RSO). He consistently runs a safe and efficient range for the training. He ensures that the CCW class range training is done safely.

Instructors George Sadeski, Daniel Arnold, and Glenn Sheller taught the beginner CCW students. These instructors know how to teach new shooters to become effective and confident. Many of the shooters were first time shooters.

 

Beyond the Bulleye With Intermediate Training in the CCW Class

Stacy Duncan taught the intermediate training for the CCW class. He ended the session by taking a short video of each student shooting and then analyzing it through Coach’s Eye – Video Analysis. The app shows movent before, during and after each shot as compared to a digital line. This tool is utilized in the training by The Sheriff of Bagdad, John McPhee, in his Gunfighter University teaching

August 24, 2019 Ohio CCW Class at Armed2Defend

This Saturday Ohio CCW class was taught in the Columbus Ohio area at Armed2Defend. This class was unique in that it started with the new NRA Basic CCW training presentation. After lesson one, the NRA students went to a different room to continue their lessons and the Ohio CCW class went through our standard instruction.

Instructors Kevin and Alisha Sadeski taught the classroom portion of the Ohio CCW training. Alisha Sadeski also taught on the importance of aftermath training. What do you do after you use your gun in self-defense? The USCCA provides the best aftermath support and training to protect their members financially and legally.

Instructors Cody Theis and Mike Ditello taught the NRA CCW students and assisted in the Ohio CCW class range training. Many of these NRA CCW students will take the NRA CCW instructor training to get certified to the NRA CCW course.

Jamie Martin was the Range Safety Officer (RSO). He consistently runs a safe and efficient range for the training. He ensures that the CCW class range training is done safely.

Instructors George Sadeski and Roger Klise taught the beginner CCW students. Both of these instructors know how to teach new shooters to become effective and confident.

Many students chose to support the NRA by signing up or renewing their NRA membership. The NRA consistently fights for our CCW rights.

August 22, 2019 Ohio CCW Class at Armed2Defend

Armed2Defend offers weekday Ohio CCW classes to help meet your scheduling needs. This August 22, 2019, concealed carry class was on a Thursday.

Instructors Kevin and Alisha Sadeski taught the classroom portion of the CCW training. During the class time, Alisha Sadeski was able to go through some of the holster options and discuss methods to carry your concealed handgun.

Cody Theis was the intermediate instructor and many of the students choose this more advanced training. We offer two levels of range training for the CCW course. For beginners, the instructor works slower through the training and we focus on learning to safely and effectively shoot. For intermediates, the training is faster paced working on developing defensive shooting skills.

Jamie Martin was the Range Safety Officer (RSO). He consistently runs a safe and efficient range for the training. He ensures that the CCW class range training is done safely.

George Sadeski and Roger Klise taught the beginner CCW students. Both of these instructors know how to teach new shooters to become effective and confident.
