Don't have a gun or don't want to travel with one?
Don't worry! We've got you covered. You can rent the gun from
us for $15 and
you just purchase whatever ammo you need when you get here. Plan to
use 200 rounds.
Since over three million tourists visit the Hocking Hills each year,
lodging can be a challenge to find - and expensive! That's why On
Guard Defense has partnered with a lodge owner a stone's throw from the
range that we have reserved to accommodate our 20 ladies for the weekend
while keeping the price very affordable (estimate - $150 per person per
weekend as opposed to an average of $200 per night!).
We have two
lodges - one sleeps 14 and the other sleeps 6. You can check out
the accommodations by clicking the lodge names below:

Friday: The adventure begins at 1PM Friday afternoon. We'll spend time in the training center learning about how to practice strong situational awareness
skills in order to avoid potential hazards, understand the legal rules that must
be in place in order to use deadly force, discuss holster retention levels and the types of holsters
available for both open and concealed carry, as well as discuss special considerations for women who
choose to carry.
We'll wrap up the day by spending some time getting to
know each other better over dinner and drinks (included in the course fee.) *BYO favorite bottle of
wine, beer or spirits, if you wish. Just remember -- if you plan to
consume alcohol, please leave your firearms secured at your place of
lodging. Dress is casual.
Saturday: Arrive at 9AM and be ready to rock the
range for the day! We will go through a variety of skills & drills
including drawing from the holster, shooting on the move & more to
prepare for our night time event & courses of fire!
We'll break for
lunch (included in the course fee) & wrap up at 3PM so you can grab dinner & prep for
the night shooting activities.
Saturday Night:Dinner is "on your own" so you can eat, change & be back
at the range with your guns & gear by 6:30 PM for our low-light / no light
training. This is a unique experience and a necessary one since
nearly 80% of violent crimes occur in these conditions. If you
train, you'll be ready!! We'll
wrap up at approximately 10PM.
Dress in jeans or tactical pants, sturdy
belt & closed-toe shoes or boots. You'll need a tactical
flashlight and holster (if you are bringing your gun). Please don't
purchase a gun or gear if you don't already have it. I will provide
you information to assist you in making the best decision that is right
for you. More info.

to women and men who wish to take part in that event only at a cost of $50 each. The
price of this portion of the event is already included for ladies registered

Sunday: Arrive back at the range at 9AM ready to
rumble! We'll be inside the training center for the day learning

strategies that every Lady Warrior needs to know! We'll focus on
common methods of attack and how to escape and defend against them.

lunch (included in the course fee) and then break for the day at
Dress is gym / work out style gear -- nothing
too fancy as you WILL be on the floor & you WILL break a sweat ;) We'll break for a late lunch (included in the course fee), get feedback
