BASIC HANDGUN TRAINING (Level I Handgun)
   

Great course for the beginner, for those who want a review of the fundamentals, or for those that desire instruction on the use of a handgun in a self-defense situation. Only $60 for 2-1/2 hours. Includes everything (guns, ammo, targets, range, etc.).  As a special offer, the class can be purchased for $55 in-store with the purchase of a firearm in the same transaction.  Bring your gun or use ours.  These are semiprivate lessons offered the 1st, 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each the month from 7:30 – 10:00 AM and on the 2d Monday of each month from 5:30 - 8:00 PM.  Because the class size is small, you must sign-up and pay in advance.  Our instructors are NRA certified.  By taking this course, you should come away with the following:

  • Knowledge of the fundamentals of marksmanship.
  • Understanding of the differences between revolvers and semiautomatic handguns, and the advantages of each in self defense scenarios.
  • How to operate revolvers and semiautomatic handguns.
  • Understanding of the safety aspects when dealing with firearms.
  • The ability to accurately hit a target at ranges where most self-defense shooting scenarios occur.

CONCEALED CARRY TRAINING
Target World’s Concealed Carry Course is designed to meet the requirements set forth by Ohio law to be able to carry concealed. Effective March 23, 2015, Ohio law requires a total of 8 hours of training - 6 hours classroom and 2 hours on the range.  Our professional instructors are NRA certified and are prepared to assist you above and beyond the minimum state requirements.  Because we have the range on-site, we are able to achieve a smooth transition from the classroom to the range without having to worry about inclement weather or other disctractions.  To sign-up, call the store at 513-772-3343 or stop by.  The course cost is $110.00 and a non-refundable deposit of at least $55.00 is required to reserve a training spot.  Before taking this course, you should have some familiarity with and be comfortable firing a handgun.  For those that have not shot before, we recommend taking the Basic Handgun training class or at least coming to the range on a date prior to the Concealed Carry class to practice and gain a comfort level with your handgun.

A Few Notes About Some Of What Differentiates Target World's Concealed Carry Training From Others Is:

  • Ohio's new standards are very vague on what is required to be taught to meet the six hour classroom and two hour range training requirement.  When you take your training at Target World, you will be professionally taught the requirements and nuances of Ohio's concealed handgun law.  Because there is only a minumum requirement by Ohio law to cover some of the material offered in the NRA's basic handgun training course, a lot of what you need to know to keep out of trouble and handle difficult situations is not covered.  Target World's CCW training goes above and beyond to give you the best training possible so that you are ready for the huge responsibility you have to yourself and others when carrying concealed.
  • Our instructors are extremely well qualified. In addition to previous real life experiences, whether it be law enforcement or military, our instructions have been teaching for Target World since Ohio adopted concealed carry in 2004. Every one of our courses are reviewed by the students and all of the feedback is reviewed by our management team. Almost without exception, our instructors receive the highest ratings and, in our opinion, are the best in the business.
  • Training is conducted on-site at Target World. With the range on-site, we are able to achieve a smooth transition from the classroom to the range without having to worry about inclement weather or other distractions.

ADVANCED CONCEALED CARRY TRAINING
Participants in the class must have a valid Concealed Handgun License (CHL).  The training required by Ohio and most states is insufficient when it comes to the skills needed to actually carry, present, and use a concealed handgun in most self defense situations.  FBI crime statistics indicate that there is a 1-in-4 chance that an individual will encounter a violent crime in their lifetime.  When that event happens, it will most likely be over in seconds.  The skills needed to survive a violent incident do not come with your concealed carry license - these skills are earned through additional training and practice.  The course cost is $95 per student and is taught over two days on the 4th Friday (6:30-9:30 PM) and Saturday (7:30-10:00 AM) of each month.  To see the course flyer which includes equipment requirements and the training outline, click here.

A Note To Outside Training Instructors: Target World does not allow outside instructors to use our range for training.  The primary reason is that we have to limit scheduled activities such as outside concealed carry classes in order to keep the range open to the public. We never know when our range will be full, so with few exceptions, we do not allow groups to schedule our range for use.  If instructors were to be tying up lanes for extended periods, during busy times customers coming in to shoot would have unnecessarily long waits to get on a lane. The second reason is that we are a business that offers concealed carry training and having an on-site range is one of our differentiating advantages.  Finally, from an insurance perspective, outside instructors are not covered by our insurance policy.  If any incident happened that resulted in a lawsuit or injury, we would not be covered.
