THIS IS NOT OUR CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSE CLASS.
for more information for your CHL training.
Despite what the picture suggests, this is not a "tacti-cool" course. it is an active course, which is to say, it's NOT a classroom course. You'll spend a full day with us at our outdoor range, covering not only the basics of shooting, but also addressing the physics of the actions you can expect to need if you are deploying lethal force. Your instructors bring years' worth of military, LEO, and competitive shooting experience in a format that everyone can understand and learn to use for themselves.
Unlike our Open Enrollment CHL classes, this is a closed class - only limited space will be available. We communicate upcoming classes by sending out email (and posting to our Facebook page) at least a month prior to the class, with details including times and addresses in another follow-up class a week before the class itself.
- Ohio CHL (or other concealed carry permit, if you are relocating from a state that issues such)
- A strong knowledge of the basics of pistol shooting is strongly recommended.
- A degree of physical ability - you can expect to be on your feet, knees, prone, and other physically strenuous activities. You don't have to be an athlete, but be aware this isn't a couch potato session.
