Whether you are interested in getting your Ohio Concealed Carry License (CCW), learning about home defense or simply want an orientation to the shooting sports, First Strike is here to help.
Our new-shooter orientations are held Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. The class takes just about two hours to complete (including range time).
Cost for the orientation is $35 and does not include firearm rental or ammunition. Cost includes range time, instructor training, targets and eye/ear protection. Rental guns are available for Learn to Shoot and CCW classes.
Each course is limited. So be sure to sign up ahead of time.
In your initial orientation, we cover fundamental safety and handgun knowledge, range regulations and sighting. Once you’re on the range, one of our range officers will visit with you to insure you’re comfortable and to answer any questions you may have.
This introduction to handguns course is designed to give you the basic knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for owning and using a handgun safely and without fear.
This class is designed for people with little or no knowledge of handguns and lasts approximately two hours. Following the course, you will feel confident using the range alone and better understand what questions to ask as your skills improve.
CCW classes are from 11am-7pm on scheduled days. Cost for class is $99
We offer an all inclusive program, instructed on site, which not only covers the basics, but also goes a step further with a focus on Ohio law from a police perspective.
Our CCW course is taught by NRA and OPTC certified instructors. You are guided through the program
in a comfortable classroom setting with a maximum of 15 students per course.
You will receive all the instruction necessary to subsequently apply for your concealed carry permit.
Upon completion of our 8-hour program, you will receive your NRA Basic Pistol Certificate and a First Strike CCW Certificate. In combination, these documents are proof of your education and assurance of its quality.
