Ohio Concealed Carry Course

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.

The Second Amendment Foundation Training Division's “Defensive Handgun 1” course exceeds 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 permit.
The goal of the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division's “Defensive Handgun 1” course is to provide the student with a solid foundation in basic knowledge of handgun safety, various types of handguns, an understanding of ammunition and how it functions, shooting fundamentals and an introduction to defensive shooting skills.
A student 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 use of a firearm – in this case a handgun – to defend themselves, their family or someone in their charge. Defensive Handgun 1 is specifically designed to provide a person new to handguns the opportunity to gain that knowledge and learn those skills.
A number of topics will be covered in “Defensive Handgun 1 – Introduction to the Defensive Use of a Handgun”. These include but are not limited to:

  • Safe handling of your firearm.
  • Safe Storage of your firearm and ammunition.
  • Basic components of a Double Action Revolver.
  • Basic components of a Semi-Automatic Pistol
  • Operation of a Double– Action Revolver
  • Operation of a Single and a Double Action Semi-Automatic Pistol.
  • Working With A Natural Defensive Stance
  • 2-Handed and Single Handed Engagements
  • Integrating The Color Code Into Your Life
  • Finding Your Balance of Speed and Precision
  • Clearing Common Pistol Stoppages
  • Progressive Shooting Drills
  • Definition of Cover and Concealment
  • Use of Cover
  • Selecting a Pistol and Ammunition
  • Cleaning and Maintain your Pistols
  • In Addition to the SAFTD curriculum, there will be a section of this course that includes an overview of: The pamphlet prepared by the Ohio peace officer training commission
