Confidence in Gun Handling Skills Class (Co-ed this time!)

We have developed a next step class for students that have taken CCW training, received their licenses, but still don't feel confident enough in their gun handling skills.

This class will be held to a small number of students (limit is 10) so that each individual student in our small group will receive a lot of personal attention. This is primarily a physical class (even during the "classroom" portion) as it is meant to build from the knowledge you already have by developing good gun handling skills through instruction and repetition of dry fire drills to take you step-by-step to building repeatable actions and processes. Each dry fire drill will build upon the last in a logical sequence designed to give you the confidence needed to handle your firearm skillfully. We will also learn how to clear the common types of jams that can occur when using a handgun. We will be using your gun with inert "dummy" rounds to set up and clear jams in a dry fire environment.

Once the 90 minute dry-fire portion is complete, We will be heading into the range to put the skills we learned in class to use with your gun. We will live-fire for 90 minutes using the new skills. There will be significant repetition in both the dry-fire and live-fire portions of this class to ingrain your new skill set. We highly recommend that you bring your gun to class. but if you cannot, you may use our gun (Ruger 22/45 semi-auto .22 cal). Course cost $100/student

Our next class will be Tuesday November 17, 2020 TIME: 5:30pm – 8:30pm. If you will be utilizing your own gun, please bring ammo (150 Rds). Please use a case, bag or container to bring your GUN AND ALL MAGAZINES UNLOADED. Bring at least two magazines for your handgun or two speed loaders for your revoilver.

No ammunition is to be brought to class.

We have developed a course in which students may bring up to two (2) handguns to clean. The class will begin with discussion and demonstration of proper cleaning techniques, then the instructor will assist each student in field stripping, cleaning, re-assembling and function testing their handguns. No ammunition is to be brought to class. Each student is provided with a cleaning mat (to protect the finish on their firearms while cleaning), odorless cleaning solvent, chemical resistant gloves, cleaning patches and gun oil. Students may either bring their own caliber specific handgun cleaning kit, or purchase a multi-caliber cleaning kit from us for $10. Cleaning kits should include: cleaning rod with jag or slotted tip to hold cleaning patches, caliber specific copper or brass brush for cleaning rod, toothbrush or nylon gun cleaning brush. Course cost is $40 per student. No ammunition is to be brought to class.

Please make sure that all FIREARMS are UNLOADED and brought in a closed case (be sure to check all magazines and chambers). The firearm manual for each handgun to be cleaned, is to be brought with the handgun. Each student must have instructor safety check their firearm (at the check station) upon arrival.

News: Gov. DeWine signs House Bill 614

House Bill 614 has been signed into law and this allows anyone to apply in any county for their CCW until June 2021. It also allows for renewals to occur at any sheriff's office and extends their expired CCWs.

Why Take Your CCW Course with Walton and Associates

Take our class to qualify for your ccw licenceDeciding on where to take your CCW training is an important decision. CCW training not only helps you meet Ohio’s requirements for acquiring a license to carry a concealed weapon, it  prepares you to safely handle and employ a firearm.

Possessing and using a firearm is an awesome right and responsibility and our NRA certified and state-recognized Instructors will teach you how to safely and effectively use a firearm in a variety of environments and situations.

We have structured our class so that beginners and experienced shooters alike will learn valuable information pertaining to firearm safety and self-defense.

Our classroom setting will allow you to handle, examine and inspect handguns in a variety of styles and types from a variety of manufacturers. In a safe unintimidating environment.

Why Get a CCW License

In the State of Ohio anyone wishing to carry a concealed handgun must apply for and receive a license.  Possessing a concealed handgun without a license is classified as a felony under current state law and is punishable by fines and imprisonment.  That's a heavy price to pay for arming and protecting yourself.  So if you're going to carry a weapon do it legally and safely. 

One of the prerequisites for acquiring a CCW Permit is undergoing approved training by a certified instructor. Training includes 6 hours of classroom instruction and 2 hours of practical application in the form of live weapons fire at the pistol range.
