Really happy with this CCW class. The online portion was concise and informative, and the in-person portion was really helpful. Both Kevin & Alisha gave me personal instruction on how to safely shoot more accurately and went out of their way to give me tips. I’d recommend this class to anyone!

I went through this course yesterday. I assumed it was going to be a boring 8 hours. I was wrong. It was fantastic. Everyone was great and I actually learned way more then I thought I would. I can’t recommend them enough. One of the best decisions I ever made. Thank you

So first of all as an African American woman I did my research on different companies because if we're being real we have historically been kept out and many of us feel uncomfortable in these white dominated spaces; but, after a few google searches I came across armed to defend and immediately noticed the diversity. I was like "great. thats where I'm going", and I'm SO GLAD that I did. Kevin and Alisha are literally the bomb.com. Like, the type of people you would want over for dinner or game night. They managed to make information that could be deemed as boring very entertaining and engaging. They also have great energy. Even their instructors were warm and knowledgeable. This is a great family owned business and definitely a safe space.

Awesome CCW/CHL training. Kevin and Alisha are top notch instructors who are passionate and knowlegeable about their field. Their style of teaching accommodates newer and seasoned firearm enthusiasts. They covered state requirements while also ensuring student questions were addressed on the spot. Finally, the range time was relaxed while prioritizing safety at all times.

This class was one of the best classes I've taken. It was fun and entertaining as well as informative. I felt the upselled everything, yet everything they sold was only high quality products that they believed in. Now I believe in them too. They're motto, "It's a lifestyle." is something I've already learned to adapt.

I had an incredible experience with the class yesterday. I had some knowledge as to what was to be expected. The class was informative and educational. For me the best part of the day was the drive home, my 22 year old son was with me and the knowledge he gained from the experience. I would highly recommend this company.

As someone who has taken NRA Pistol classes before, I was happily surprised that the range training for the CHL featured 5+ NRA Instructors, as well as the leaders of the training, Alisha, and Kevin who are NRA Instructors themselves. Most other training providers I considedred don't provide instruction during the training process, and the investment in qualified NRA Instructors made me feel much better about this training over the others that I investigated before applying for my CHL. This is a great Company to use whether you're an experienced shooter, or have never shot a gun before. You will feel more comfortable with a firearm, and understand the responsibilities you have as a firearm owner by going through this company. Would highly recommend.

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!

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.

So glad I found these guys! While most other concealed carry classes were booked for months out, I got in and out of their class VERY quickly. The convenience factor of doing 6 of the required 8 hours from home makes this worth far more than what they charge. Thank you, Armed2Defend!
Great training!

I had a great time doing the training class. It was a really big class and Kevin made sure everyone felt welcome. I will be doing more training with them in the future.

Armed2Defend is an awesome place because they treat you like family and are truly concerned about your safety and are very passionate about what they do. 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.

Very informative detailed instruction in such a short time period. Very organized.
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!

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.
