Highly recommend. Very educational and helpful for both experienced and inexperienced. You will learn basic pistol concepts with a major focus on the safety, responsibility, and the legality of carrying CCW.

The staff members were very professional and the in class education was great. I had very limited experience handling firearms but left the class feeling confident. As a matter of fact, I bought my first handgun (Glock 19) earlier this week!

Very good course! I met a very good, smart group of people and learned a lot of very valuable information. The attorney that speaks has great information and advice. No questions go unanswered. Staff was great! I will certainly recommend to my friends!



Excellent experience!!!

The staff was great! Very professional and helpful. Price is hard to beat.


The course is informative as well as entertaining. The 13 hours truly flew by. The folks are professional and truly care that you are well informed and ready. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in obtaining their CCW license or just to learn the basics about firearms and firearm handling. The range is manned by dozens of men and women who are patient, knowledgeable and work with you at your pace until you are comfortable and ready to be qualified. I called my daughters on the way home to recommend they go here as well. 5 stars A+++ all the way!!!




By far the most professional, economical, and convenient way to get your Ohio CCW. Safety is the primary principle that is taught during the course which helps to set your mind at ease knowing that the person beside you is getting the same training. Novices and amateurs are treated with the same amount of respect and the course is very female friendly. Yes, there are others who do the same type of training for CCW. I can assure you that none are as thorough and professional as the training that you will receive at Armed2Defend!



You will not find a better dea...

You will not find a better deal or better training anywhere in my opinion. I drove over an hour to attend the class back in December 2012. Then I went back (as a visitor) with my wife and two of our friends so they could take the class as well in January. Yes, it's a long day, but there's always enough energy and information flowing to keep you alert. I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin and his crew to anyone. The legal presentation by Ken is top notch as well. This class is for almost everyone, you will definitely learn something regardless of experience level. They are not just wasting your time with junk to fulfill your 12 hour training requirement. These guys really care about preparing you for the huge responsibility of carrying a concealed weapon. The staff is courteous and polite and they keep the other students in line, there's no swearing or making fun of other students. It's a great experience, highly recommended for men, women, couples, old and young. Exercise your right to carry!


My wife and I took the course together. It was a great experience. Even though it was a long day, getting everything accomplished in that time frame worked well for our schedule. The staff was excellent and the training we received was top-notch.




I took the CCW class Aug 2012. It was the best thing I have done, The class was informative,it trained us well,and was fun to boot. Can't say enough good things about Armed2Defend,staff is top notch. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in obtaining thier CCW.



From novice to pro

I loved the class because I had no experience with handguns and came away feeling very confident. My husband son, though very experienced, still came away with new information. All in all, we all felt like it was the best place to take your CHL class. Instructors are professional and thorough. Highly recommend Armed2Defend!


Great instructors, convenient one day classes. I would highly recommend this class for your CCW. Doesnt matter if you are a seasoned shooter, or new to it, they will give you all you need to pass your test.


Easily the best value on concealed carry training in central Ohio. Classroom instruction by Kevin Sadeski and legal instruction by Ken Hanson is some of the best you will receive in the state. Range instruction is well staffed and instructed by experienced shooters. You will not find a better value in central Ohio. Do not hesitate to sign up.
