Fundamentals of Concealed Carry Handgun
FCCH/CCW is where the rubber meets the road for your Concealed Carry training. This course is designed to teach the student about the handguns that are best for concealed carry, how to store them safely and securely, and how to use them efficiently in the context of a Imminent Lethal Threat.
Our class is taught by I.C.E. and NRA-certified instructors
Students will learn the difference between sighted and unsighted fire, the balance of speed and precision, drawing from the holster, movement out of the line of attack, and the science behind defensive shooting. You will also learn about proper defensive firearms and ammunition, holsters, where and how to store your firearm to maximize access, and will review the State of Ohio laws regarding the Use if Deadly Force and Concealed Carry. If you have been thinking of getting your CCW permit, this is the training you NEED to take to put you on the right path to confidently defending yourself.

What to Bring to Class
You will need writing pad and pen/pencil and your pistol you intend to use for the range. Your pistol should be in a case and unloaded for transportation in your vehicle and that is how we expect it to be brought into the classroom. Absolutely no ammunition in class, please. You can use any caliber pistol for this class. Bring any snacks or drinks you may want throughout the day. We do have some pistols available for rent. If you do not already own a pistol, renting is a great way to find out what you like or what fits your needs best.

Pistol (No Ammunition!)
What you Need for the Range
You will need a minimum of 100 rounds for your pistol. This does not account for any extra shooting required to be able to complete the course of fire (if needed). You will need to bring safety glasses and hearing protection (electronic preferred so you can hear range commands). You will need to wear seasonally appropriate clothing. Shirts should have a round collar to prevent the unauthorized access of brass into your shirt.
