Ohio Concealed Carry

Ohio began offering conceal carry in 2004 and many of our instructors have had licenses ever since then along with other states.

We use the USCCA Concealed Carry course which is the most comprehensive on the market today.  You will receive training on firearms, self defense, safety, and an overview of Ohio CCW.
