Many customers have asked (AND WE LOVE THAT YOU DO!) via email, phone and facebook messenger about CCW classes. For those that are curious, here is the answer.
#TeamILO is trained and certified by the NRA to offer a CCW (Concealed Carry) Training Course & Basics of Pistol Training program to the public. In order for you to obtain the NRA approved training and apply for your CCW permit, the full NRA program does consists of two phases. Phase 1 is completed online with the NRA and Phase 2 is done at Indian Lake Outfitters with trained and knowledgeable NRA certified instructors.
Phase 1 and Phase 2 courses together meet and/or exceed the minimum educational and training requirements to apply for Ohio’s CCW Permit to carry a handgun concealed. The training includes both classroom (lecture) and range time (live fire). Topics include rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; cleaning the pistol; and continued opportunities for skill development, among other topics.
At Indian Lake Outfitters, Phase 2 of the NRA's Basic Pistol Instruction starts in the classroom with a review of Phase 1 before heading to the live range for qualifying. For class, you need to bring your handbook or notes, Phase 1 completion certificate, a safe functioning handgun, unless you are renting from Indian Lake Outfitters, 100 rounds of ammunition, and ear and eye protection. Firearms, ammunition, ear protection and eye protection are available for purchase at the store.
