Real World Practice
Unlike traditional gun ranges, that limit you to shooting stationary targets, from a stationary position... not to mention prohibiting rapid fire, drawing from your holster, and shooting from any position not standing or in any direction not directly in front of you...we encourage the development and practice of the full spectrum of real world defensive shooting skills.
Real World Response
How you train is how you'll practice...and how you practice is how you'll respond! As such, getting high quality, personalized instruction is the first step. Practicing those skills until you've built the necessary muscle memory and confidence must follow however. Our unique Tactical Training Center helps you with both!
Concealed Carry Course
When: Year Round
Time: 8am-5pm (with an hour break for lunch)
Class Size: 10 Student Limit
We do Concealed Carry training differently than most instructors. While ours is always led by certified instructors, and meets the State of Ohio Concealed Handgun Permit pre-application education requirements, we spend a significant amount of time focusing on real world skills...and have an entire program designed to help you move from a novice pistol shooter to a confident, skilled concealed carry permit holder.
This course continually reinforces firearm safety, guides you through both dry fire and live fire drills carefully chosen to help you layer on critical skills, provides you with individualized coaching, and prepares you for more advanced training. You will leave with a solid understanding of the use of your personal firearm, as well as a personalized recommendation for additional training and practice drills to help you meet your defense goals.
We make use of classroom instruction, skill development drills on the range, and individualized coaching to ensure student understanding and practical application ability is achieved in a concise time period. We also spend a significant amount of time ensuring you understand the legal responsibilities associated with defending yourself or a loved one with your firearm.

A Note About Gear: While we do not sell gear, nor do we ban/require any particular gear, we cannot stress enough how important your gear choice is. We recommend that you pay special attention to both your choice of holster and your belt choice. If you are just learning proper holster technique, we recommend you go with a belt-worn strong-side hip or an apendix holster. When selecting a holster, we strongly recommend going with a Kydex holster, specifically made for your gun. As for belt choice, there are a variety of gun belts available on the market today. However, a simple, sturdy leather belt that is at least 11/2 inches wide is a good choice. You do not want a belt that is highly flexible or rolls easily. If you would like some suggestions on appropriate gear, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to point you in the right direction and give you several options to choose from.
Please Note: We take the safety of those who train with us very seriously. To ensure everyone has a safe and productive training session, strict safety standards are enforced. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
