The women’s group uses Armed2Defend’s covered instructional range in Canal Winchester, OH. Only handguns are permitted on the range and all handguns will be transported unloaded in a closed bag or case and are not to be removed until you are on the firing line and the Range Safety Officer has given you permission to remove your handgun. For safety reasons, holstering of handguns is not permitted on the range (no exceptions).


Handgun Rental:

Pistols are available for rental for only $5 plus the cost of the ammunition. (Ammunition prices vary depending on caliber but range from $10-$22). We have 22lr, 45 Auto, 40 cal, 38 special, 380 auto and 9mm options available to rent.



Safety is the primary focus in any live fire exercise; therefore any unsafe behavior and/or breaking of the range rules will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the range without a refund.
