The state of Ohio requires a person who wants to apply for an Ohio License to Carry a Concealed Handgun otherwise known as a “CCW Permit” to meet certain educational criteria. We understand that some people have little to no experience shooting a handgun. For that reason, we have decided to offer a Basic Ohio Concealed Carry Class using the SAFTD F.A.S.T. Handgun course. for those of you who wish to take a more basic course, yet still be able to apply for your "Ohio License To Carry A Concealed Handgun"

The Second Amendment Foundation Training Division's “F.A.S.T. Handgun ” course along with and expanded course of fire, and an additional lesson on Ohio Concealed Carry law, meets that criteria. For that reason we have chosen to use this curriculum for students who would like to obtain the training necessary to apply to the State of Ohio for their Cary License.

The goal of the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division's “F.A.S.T Handgun” course is to provide the student with a solid foundation in basic knowledge of handgun "Fundamentals and Safety Training" on your specific handgun, a basic understanding of ammunition and how it functions as well as shooting fundamentals.

A person new to the use of a firearm for personal defense typically has a broad range of questions and is faced with learning a number of skills that are critical in the safe use of a firearm – in this case a handgun. F.A.S.T Handgun is specifically designed to provide a person new to handguns the opportunity to gain that knowledge and learn the basics of operation, cleaning and maintenance, safety and much more in a convenient 4 hour course. “F.A.S.T Handgun” is also meant as an introductory course for students new to handguns prior to taking SAFTD Defensive Handgun 1.
