This class will educate you on the basics of pistol shooting. It will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to safely shoot a pistol. This class takes you beyond the State of Ohio Minimum class. Bring 100 rounds of ammo for your gun. Don't have a gun, we have some you can use. Bring a holster if you have one. We use state of the art SIRT (Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger) guns in our classrooms. The SIRT guns shoot a laser onto any target. They do not shoot live ammunition.

We can provide 9mm ammunition for a fee.

Expectations and Outcomes

You will receive range experience to go "live fire hands on". You will receive a certificate and all of the information that you will need to apply for your CCW permit through your county's or adjacent county's Sheriff's Office.

If time and student's ablities permit, we introduce students to basic defensive pistol shooting.

We are not the cheapest in town. We keep class sizes to 6 or less for our CCW classes.
