Concealed Carry Class for Kentucky and Ohio Residents

Our Classes are catered to beginners and those who want to improve their shooting skills… SAFE, low stress, personal attention, lots of fun and humor… and quality instruction you can not find anywhere else.

If you are interested in learning gun safety, proper handgun shooting techniques or want to know the rules and laws for concealed carry of a handgun, OUR CCW CLASS MEETS ALL YOUR NEEDS.  You will learn everything you need to become a safe and responsible gun owner with solid shooting skills.

Even if you do not own a handgun yet, we have several handguns available to loan out for use during the class (we do charge a small fee for any ammunition we provide).  This will help you determine the right type of handgun for you before you go shopping at your local gun store.

Training certificates are issued to students on the day of class. Upon completion, you will have met all the legal requirements needed to apply for your concealed carry permit.

Our skill building classes cover the foundational skills needed to be a competent defensive handgun/rifle shooter; and prepare students to seek further training as well as enhance each person’s ability to defend themselves with their firearm, should the need occur.  We begin with the basics of marksmanship and start to incorporate accuracy and speed.  You will also learn and practice skills most indoor ranges will not allow, like drawing from the holster and shooting while moving.  

Our highly-qualified Instructors have certifications from the following organizations:

  • The National Rifle Association (NRA)
  • The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA)
  • The Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training (former).

We aim to provide the safest, most informative and most enjoyable concealed carry class in the Greater Cincinnati Area.
