Ohio Concealed Carry Course

On Guard Defense uses only the cream of the crop when it comes to the certified firearms instructors that deliver our concealed carry classes. In accordance with Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 2923.125, the course consists of a minimum of six (6) hours of classroom instruction plus two (2) hours on our range. You'll knock it out in a single day!

We also utilize the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) curriculum which is based on Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, by Michael Martin.  Why?  Because we believe it is superior to the rest in setting the right expectations for prospective firearms owners in terms of the physical, legal, financial and moral aspects of gun ownership.

Each student of the class will be provided their own copy of the book to take home at the end of the class.
