The class was easy to understand and participate in. With the classes being given over the net, it let people participate more openly and relaxed. With a class that talks about defending oneself and possibly taking another persons life, the trainers presented themselves as people of the community.If you are looking to get CCW license and are looking for that military/ police training experience in your class, then don't take the class from Armed2Defend. Armed2Defend will give you respect and train you as a person. They know that you will be taking a firearm into their community(s), so they will train you to take a firearm into a community, not onto a battlefield. Armed2Defend is the way to go for your CCW training!

Great people with a great perspective providing great training. The course is very educational and presented with a great philosophy of the best gun fight is the one you avoid. I would definitely recommend. Kevin and Alisha were both knowledgeable and tremendous at teaching the material. Thanks!

I took this class virtually due to COVID-19, even with it being virtual it was very detailed and they allowed us to ask questions. It didn’t feel rushed at all. At the range, we were able to use actual weapons and practice for the entire scheduled range time instead of doing more “lectured learning”. Would recommend.

I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. I received a personal call checking on me because I signed up twice but didn't go. So he rearranged things after he listened to my story and helped me a lot. Thank you for that. I forgot his name but not how he helped me. Thanks Armed2Defend.

Armed2Defend is a great learning experience. Given the gravity of gun ownership, responsible knowledge required to possess, and skill required to carry out your rights, this is one organization dedicated solely to those who want ownership and concealed carry. Kevin and Alisha both are teaching professionals with degrees and they take safety, teaching, and learning about gun ownership and handing with the utmost respect. The range portion of the experience is safe with 4 students with an instructor and only 2 on the firing line at a time. I feel I received much more than I paid for and these five stars are earned by the organization.

My wife and I took this course to complete the requirements for obtaining a conceal carry license. We spent a total of 8 hours in a single week by taking 3 nights of 2 hour classes each night and passing quizzes each night. The final night we drove to the company’s private range in Canal Winchester where we obtained training and technique in firing our personal guns and also has the opportunity to try several other guns. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Kevin and Alisha and their staff.

I took my concealed carry course from Armed2Defend after the pandemic started so the class part was done online. I had never done a zoom course and had issues with it the first night but I still learned a lot and enjoyed the lectures. The range was great—George was my instructor and he was great, very personable, patient and kind. I had my own revolver with me but had not been to a firing range in years and was very rusty, plus I had never fired a semi auto and didn’t even know how to load one. I purchased the 15 gun assortment for after my range time and highly recommend that, it was great having a chance to try them all out there with the help of the guys all of whom are very knowledgeable. I left there that day having chosen the exact gun I wanted for my concealed carry pistol and can’t wait to go back to the range! Very glad I did this course and I highly recommend Armed2Defend

I was nervous going into the CCW class with virtually no experience. The instructors were able to identify where I was with my experience and build on it. They made me feel confident and assisted in finding what kind of pistol was best for me. The classroom portion was done via Zoom meetings due to COVID. The instructors were attentive to the students and made sure everyone was paying attention and understood each concept before moving forward. I don’t have a single negative thing to say about this experience. I will continue to be involved in their meetings to further my skill and will be bringing friends! 10/10!

If you are reading this, do yourself a favor and pull the theoretical trigger on it, immediately!!! Kevin and Alisha are a power couple force to be reckoned with! Best CCW courses I could have ever hoped for. I did all three modules through ZOOM with them and they are the kindest, cutest, most patient people i've met. They always stayed after the "class" to answer questions and clarify anything. The quizzes are straightforward and they took my feedback on the last one and hopefully adjusted accordingly. I had the pleasure of having Kevin as my instructor at the range and It was on the 4th of July so we even got to try some neat toys for free! I tried the pistol sampler even though i have my ideal concealed carry firearm, and I really enjoyed how they had it laid out, (even though i didn't get to shoot one because it "broke"). I met Kevin's dad also and you could tell he was a real old school gamgster in his day. I just received my CHL yesterday thanks to these guys.. If you're still reading just do yourself a favor and take this course. It's the best bang for your buck and you won't regret meeting these awesome individuals. I will be recommending as well as directing all of my applicable business towards them. Anyone who rates this course negatively is a true biggot and trust me, there ARE people who just want to watch the world burn.

I’m glad he did.The six hours of online training was interesting and very thoroughly executed. I didn’t doze off once! LOL! The instructors were very laid back and easy to follow, adding real live examples where possible. Made the material very easy to apply.The two hour range session was just as great! The instructor was patient for newbies; and adjusted to those who were more experienced. Trainers were very personable and made me feel they genuinely cared about my technique.To me, they earned every one of the five stars!

In taking the USCCA content driven CHL(CCW) course, it’s obvious that this family business cares about delivering the best content covering laws, safety, handgun and ammo knowledge, grip, stance, real life self defense cases and much more. They make even the most novice individual feel comfortable that they will walk away with renewed confidence to safely carry a handgun. Armed2Defend is not about throwing content at you for money. It is the BEST value for what you get in return of any course I researched! You won’t be disappointed!!

Had a great experience with Armed2Defend. Visiting the range for the first time by myself made me a little nervous, but once I arrived, I felt totally at ease. The experience is not intimidating and the lessons learned online prior to range training help you understand basic gun safety before you start! I only wish I had more time to actually think about/take notes with the different guns I tried...I felt a little rushed, but came away with a better understanding of what might be a better fit for me. I plan on coming back for more self defense training in the future.

My wife and I took the conceal carry class and it was excellent! Tons of info, instructions and cautions regarding conceal carry. The range time was even better! Our instructor, Tim was so helpful and patient. My wife had not shot before and he really spent time with her understanding how to shoot. It’s a must for new gun owners, in my opinion. Thank you guys for the awesome training. And please tell Tim thanks too!!

Great course. Very thorough. Zoom meeting for classroom time was very convenient during the Chinese virus shutdown. They have a private range near Canal/Lithopolis that is off the beaten path. They offer a deal to allow you to shoot a bunch of different guns, well worth it! Love the enthusiasm of the owners.

Great experience! Kevin and Alisha were great instructors and I learned a lot about gun safety, laws, as well as tips on being a more accurate shooter. The zoom classes were very convenient for my schedule and the sampler pack at the range allowed me to try our a lot of different guns i would never usually shoot. Would highly recommend taking the course!

The class wasn't boring and there wasn't that b.s. that I've seen in other classes, it's straight to the point with a comfortable atmosphere that's not full of storytelling and condescending rhetoric. Well put together and I recommend Armed2Defend to anyone, beginner or veteran.

The practice shooting is so thought out and comforting that everyone that was terrified of shooting a gun came out happy and smiling because of how much of a great time we were having! 10/10 would recommend!

Wonderful experience. I was a novice and was schooled in law and rules for concealed carry. They found a way to deliver tons of important information in an interesting manner. Everyone very knowledgeable. We had a large class, but Plenty of instructions and individual help. Range time great whether you were my military family members or my sister and I new to all of it. We did this concealed carry class as a family of 6. When my youngest son reaches appropriate age this will be the only place I will consider sending him. Kudo's Armed2Defend!!

Took my CCW class with Armed 2 Defend and was not disappointed. They have a attorney presentation which I believe is exclusive to them, and worth the money itself for what it provides. The attorney presentation gave me information I didn't know I needed and was beyond helpful. On top of all of this the rest of the class is phenomenal as well. Instructors are very knowledgeable and are really there to make you feel comfortable and safe. Would recommend to anyone looking to get their CCw or any gun class!

This was a great training experience. This was really convenient for me because the availability of classes Monday-Saturday every week! I learned alot, the whole breakdown and operation of a firearm, the laws and how to properly carry. The training really helped me to see some of the things that are not considered when owning or carrying a firearm, like having a proper holster. I feel this class was well worth the money and I'm glad I took it.

Wow.....What a rewarding experience. The class is very informative and you learn quite a bit about gun safety and your right to carry. They even have a lawyer who gives you legal advise so that you don’t make common ccw mistakes your first time. I will say you MUST pay attention as the information presented is important and can Potential save your life one day and possibles the life of the suspect. The range is outdoors and is full of experienced people who come from various disciplines. They teach you not only your shooting stance but also assist you what your aim and take time to tell you how you can improve your shot and response time. This day was long but it was the best 8hrs ever and an investment I truly believe will benefit me in the days months and years to come. Kevin thank you for being there for people and their 2nd amendment rights and god bless your business your team and the work you do to protect our rights.

Very well run. Class material is broken up between lectures and videos. Topics cover the basic CC information as well as what to expect in the aftermath that may involve police and the courts. The range is very well organized with plenty of experienced instructors. A big plus is their extra Pistol Sampler Experience. The sample included 14 different model/type of pistols and it is well worth the added cost. The last one I fired turned out to be the one for me! Highly recommend Armed2Defend.

I took an instructor course from Kevin. I was really impressed. Kevin is a true professional. The other instructors on the range were all top notch as well. I had the opportunity to see both in action with the concealed carry course as well when I took my test before the actual class. They have the ability to make someone completely new to firearms feel comfortable in an environment of learning and always in safety. If you're on the fence about taking a course from Armed2Defend let me encourage you. You will not regret it! Also its clear that Kevin is passionate about people learning and standing up about our 2nd amendment rights. Sign up for the NRA with Armed2Defend. Once you know the quiet comfort that comes from walking in public knowing you have the skill at arms to defend yourself and your family you'll wonder how you did it before.

The CCW training at Armed2Defend exceeded my expectations. I would absolutely recommend anyone wanting their CCWS to join a session at A2D!!!! what a wonderful staff and the range officer (he’s a marine ) he was so hopeful and helped me to become a better shooter. Thank you all very much I had a blast and will recommend anyone I can to come on out !!

Kevin and Armed2Defend were recommended to me for NRA Basic Pistol Instructor Training and I'm glad I attended. Great job by Kevin, Stacy, and the other instructors. Their training is 1st class and I too now would recommend them for any level of training.

It was really fun getting my license to carry a weapon test was kind of easy if you pay attention and do what you’re supposed to do and then the range was pretty awesome now you feel safer for you and your family have all the things that’s happening anymore in this world it was great and the instructors was pretty awesome They knew what they was talking about and if you needed help they helped you.

I would recommend this class to anyone who is a first-time gun owner. All my questions were answered, I was put at ease, the class was conducted in a professional manner with excellent training materials and videos. Kevin and his staff were professional and enthusiastic regarding the successful completion of the class and all the steps involved in safe gun ownership, handling and obtaining a CCW. I appreciated the patience that was shown to me during class and first-time exposure to a firing range. After taking the class I feel confident that I would be able to do whatever was required during an actual emergency or threat because situations (and laws) that I had never considered were brought up discussed and well covered during this class. Many thanks to Kevin Sadeski his family and staff. Armed 2Defend is a first-class operation.

I work weekends and almost every range were teaching on the weekends. I was out of my time for Vacation etc to use. This range does not easily come up when you Google. After Googling for several days I came across this Range. I thought it was online by the name but it was in class. It was in a weekday Thursday which is my off day. I went there and the first person I met is his wife who is energetic and she loves guns. The whole family was very welcoming. Kevin a handsome guy was awesome in teaching the material and knowledge he held. I love you Kevin. This one place is highly recommended. I felt so comfortable being LGBT as they are so welcoming.

Not you average hours at the range, you learn how to draw from a holster quickly and get your target acquired fast. Takes you out of your comfort zone and you walk away feeling like you can handle your gun better.

I took the Concealed Carry Class several years, ago. It was a great learning experience. The instructors treated us kindly and courteously. The range was a great experience. I do not understand how foolishly our state legislature is acting in it's proposal to give "carte blanche" authority to Ohio residents to carry without training and without full understanding of the law.More recently, I sent my wife and daughter to your school.

Armed2Defend is one of best firms that train on carry concealed as well as all NRA firearms levels as well as Range officers and Safety officers. Their private rang is a nice facility to shoot at and their instructors have th patience of Job. Excellent Central Ohio facility and enterprise. When completing the CCW class and applying for the permit, they take the extra step of helping you secure one for AZ (for Ohio residents) so you can carry legally in all States that allow it and don't have to worry about Ohio having reciprocity. Kevin and his team are the best.

Great ccw classes the instructors are very helpful and patient with all different levels of experience. The range that they have is also great. I recommend all who ask to use armed2defend. I have not had an opportunity to take advantage of the other classes that are available but from what I see as I follow them is very good so I recommend that if you want a great program and feel confident in your gun handling skills to take any if not all of the courses available. The more you learn and practice the better prepared you will be if you should need to protect yourself and family. I thank you A2D for the knowledge and I will continue to train when I get to AZ.

Very well organized, no wasted time at all. Classes are very informative and the time goes past quickly. But my favorite part of the day was the range time. The instructor had plenty of tips and insight. They also had some great practice drills for future range time. I highly recommend Armed2defend and will go back for more classes in the future.

My husband and I both took our class yesterday. The instructors are amazing. It's not some boring fall asleep class. The added aspect of a presentation from a lawyer who knows Ohio firearm laws AND is an NRA instructor is a great bonus. Thank you Stacy and Glenn for making our experience a good one and answering our questions and being patient with us!

The range nice and covered and pretty warm considering it was just covered range. You will laugh, learn and meet great people and learn so much. One of the few classes that have an attorney to teach you the laws.

They have a great attorney that comes in and speaks for a hour to info you of the dos and donts. Would definetly recommend anyone looking to getting der CCW to come here. Not to mention if you go to franklin county sheriff to get your licence the staff knows kevin and speaks highly of him....

My wife, mother-in-law and myself all greatly enjoyed the class and the day. We were especially happy with attorney Ken's law presentation. He makes you think about things most won't realize are factors in self-defense with a weapon. Stacy was entertaining as heck in the classroom and outstanding on the range. I feel like I learned a lot in both the lecture and especially on the range.For anyone considering the course, if you have your own firearm, bring it! If you are familiar with it, you can get the "Intermediate Instruction" instead of the beginner. If you don't own one, they'll provide one for you that is easy to handle. It's a great first step in learning what you must do to save your own life. I am now looking into the other classes they have to offer so I can further improve my self-defense abilities!Again, I truly enjoyed the class, and appreciate the effort Armed2Defend has put into making the process of getting the CHL as smooth and pain-free as possible.

I took the CCW class almost two years ago. Since then, my wife and two of our friends have taken the class as well. I have and will continue to recommend Armed2Defend to anyone interested in getting their CCW. As others have mentioned, Ken's legal presentation is top notch and helps to get you in the right mindset for carrying on a regular basis. He hits a lot of the main areas that get people into trouble. The entire staff of trainers and range officers were very friendly and helpful.If you look hard enough you 'might' find a class cheaper somewhere else, or maybe somebody your buddy's uncle's friend knows said he'd certify you cheap. Why skimp on something so important? I doubt you will find better training anywhere in central Ohio even if you paid more. The state requires 12 hours of instruction, so you might as well make it count. You will learn something regardless of your experience level. The legal presentation alone is worth the price.

I just finished the basic pistol class needed for a CHL and it was amazing. The instructors were so helpful and answered all questions that I had (no matter how silly they were). The range instructors were just as awesome and made me feel very comfortable with shooting (this was only my third time shooting a gun). I highly recommend buying the pistol sampler package for anyone who is looking into buying their own hand gun. It’s only $35 and I got to shoot about 18 different guns to see what I liked and didn’t like. I feel much more confident about going and purchasing a firearm now that I have an idea about how specific ones shoot. I can’t wait to try one of their Women’s Pistol Group this summer!

Stacey was fantastic in class and at the range. If you have had some training with your gun I highly recommend doing the intermediate shooting during the shooting portion of the concealed carry training it is fun, you get a good training on reacting fast and being put under pressure by the instructor. Great experience getting the glasses done plus it’s a great price compared to the other places.

Had a great class yesterday. They really take the time to go through it all. The instructors are great and I gained a lot of information from this class. If you are new to the world of shooting they will help you get started. Your intermediate they will push you on the Range for you to feel what it's like to shoot under stress. For you new people just remember the only dumb question is the one not asked because they will give you an answer to any of them.

I attended the Armed2Defend carry class in March of '18. Signup and payment online was painless. Class availability was also plentiful with multiple dates open.Upon arrival the day got off to a good start. My personal folder was prepared with all of my class materials. Instructors took our "passport" photographs prior to class beginning and had them printed for us by the end of the day.Instructors were knowledgeable and did a nice jobof keeping the class moving. The classroom material is basic and will be 2nd nature if you're at all familiar with handguns. The legal portion of the class was informative but unfortunately for us the lawyer was recovering from an injury and we watched a recording of a prior session. Good information also provided around USCCA, NRA, and handgun accessories (safes, holsters, etc).I had the pleasure of shooting at the range under the direction of Jeff Scudder and he was top notch!! Jeff's attn to detail and instruction was above and beyond. He led the "advanced" shooters and was intense, thorough, and extremely personable.I'd recommend these guys if you're in the market for getting your certificate for a concealed handgunpermit. Painless process and well organized from beginning to end.

I appreciate all the training each instructor provided, while taking the cousre! I'd also like to thank Kevin as the onwner of Armed2Defend, for taking such a personal and serious interest, with every individual in the class!

Took Kevin's class with my son, both of us are experienced shooters. Kevin's staff are an excellent group of professional's. He gives you all you need to pass the CCL test and the range guys are first rate. Safety is first priority, bar none. You are not safe, you WILL be corrected. The range officer (Stan) in my group was stellar. Excellent advice and no nonsense.Kevin has a First rate attorney that has a long history defending firearm ownership (Ken Hanson) present a basic understanding of CCL & firearms law. It is very informative and you NEED to pay attention, as it is the beginning of understanding the responsibility of CCW. He keeps it interesting and can answer anything.Kevin teaches basics for the beginner, up to advanced training to continue improving how to safely handle a firearm. Overall, wish I could give him 6 or 7 stars. A no frills, very professional firearms training instructor, who I would highly recommend.

Honestly before I went I didn’t know what to expect . I’m a 22yr old “urban” male and didn’t know if there were going to be judgy instructors , uppity people etc. but once I stepped through the doors it all went out the window . It’s literally a mix of every type of person out there . No one is left out , I seen there’s no judgement on how experienced you were, either way they would work to get you where you need to be. The instructors were informative , experienced and willing to answer any and all questions. But also even though this is serious business they made a way to make it enjoyable . I’m pretty knowledgeable with firearms and things of that nature but even with that I learned ALOT . Sometimes even from others in my class asking questions . I don’t usually do reviews but my experience made me feel as if this deserved a review and also to help if anyone feels how I did before attending JUST DO IT YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! I never once felt unsafe even with inexperienced shooters around me that’s how good the staff is . If I could 10 stars . Great job guys if I needed to I would do it again . CCW holder for 4 months now . Thanks a lot guys and gals !!!!!!
