Concealed Carry Course

Weyer Tactical offers a one day, 8-hour CCW Course that meets minimum requirements set by the state of Ohio to obtain your CCW license. Class starts at 8:00am and is held in our newly remodeled, air conditioned classroom where refreshments such as coffee, bottled water and soda are offered as part of the course tuition.  The class covers state required topics such as gun safety, safe handling, storage and transportation of firearms and ammunition and range time just to name a few.

Guns and ammunition are provided for the class so there is no need to bring your own. You will be learning on a Smith and Wesson M&P for a semiautomatic pistol and a Ruger LCR for a revolver.

There are always several first-time shooters in every class, so if you’re a beginner this is a great place to start.  We recommend that you take this class prior to making your decision on purchasing the right handgun for you.

Class will break for lunch for about an hour.  You are welcome to bring your own but there are plenty of restaurants close by that you can go to as well.

When you leave our CCW class, you will have everything you need to go get your CCW license including your completed application, a passport-sized application photo (a $9 savings) and your certificate of training.

The cost of the course is only $65. There are no hidden or extra costs.

We look forward to seeing you!

What is Concealed Carry?

Concealed Carry in Ohio refers to the legal ability to carry a handgun concealed on your person. Concealed Carry is also known as CCW, CCL, or CCH. No matter what you call it, you must be properly licensed according to the rules set down by Ohio law.

To be properly licensed to carry a concealed handgun in Ohio, there are multiple basic requirements.
• You must be at least 21 years of age.
• You must be an Ohio resident for at least 45 days.
• You must be a resident of the county you live in for at least 30 days.
• You must complete the required 8-hour course to obtain your Certificate of Competency by a qualified instructor. To find a qualified instructor go to the the Instructor Search of the Ohio Attorney General’s Website. If you search “Stark” County for the last name “Weyer,” you will see that Joe Weyer, the instructor of Weyer Tactical’s CCW Course, is qualified by the state of Ohio to teach this course.
• You must complete the application for an Ohio Concealed Handgun License. You will receive this application and help filling it out in Weyer Tactical’s Course.
• You must have a 2”x2” application photo to take with you to the Sheriff’s office. Weyer Tactical will also provide you with this photo before you leave the course.
• You must locate the Sheriff’s office in the county you live in or any adjacent county to apply for your license. Weyer Tactical will provide you with a list of area Sheriff’s offices and their information so you can pick the one that best accommodates your schedule.
• The Sheriff’s office will collect your information and run a background check prior to issuing your license. You must take some form of State ID with you when you apply. The fee at the Sheriff’s office for the background check is $67 for a new license for an individual who has been a resident of Ohio for 5 years or more and $91 for an individual who has been a resident for less than 5 years.

This course centers around the safe, responsible and efficient use of the rifle or carbine for defensive purposes. Topics include but are not limited to: sighting systems (optics and irons),recoil management, tactical and emergency reloads, reduction of malfunctions and ammunition selection. Modern sporting rifles such as the AR-15 and other semi-automatics have strengths that are unknown to many users. We can teach you how to run the gun effectively. If you are an experienced rifle user it serves as a great refresher and skills update.

Rifle theory and technique have changed drastically in the last decade, making the interface between you and the rifle much more efficient. We incorporate the most effective tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP’s) in the course of instruction.

Live-fire is conducted at the realistic close-quarters distances encountered in defensive scenarios with an emphasis on threat identification and the engagement sequence for single and multiple targets.

The instructors for this course have a combined total of over 40 years of Law Enforcement, Military and competition use of carbines and rifles.

This course also offers the option of teaching the proper techniques for transitioning from your rifle to your handgun. While not mandatory, if you would like to learn this skill, you are free to bring a handgun, 50 rounds of ammunition, and a proper holster.

Quality .22Lr. clones of most full size platforms are also welcome, this is due to the current cost of ammunition and the fact that the quality clones have identical manipulations mimicking their big brothers.

Please bring around 250 rounds of ammunition.
