  2. Have you ever heard of the "thumbs forward grip"? What's the advantage? Why use it? TSD teaches not just HOW, but WHY we use a specific technique. It allows for a better understanding by our students. Here's a little explanation from Tactical Skills Development. TSD on the thumbs forward grip
  3. Ohio could become the 13th state to allow for constitutional carry if a bill proposed by State Rep Ron Hood (R-Ashville) passes. Representative Hood introduced House Bill 387 in the Ohio Legislature with the hopes that you will no longer have to beg for government permission to carry a firearm for self defense. The bill wouldn't require any fee being paid to the government for you to exercise your right first, joining Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming. You won't need a government forced permit to carry a firearm either. Most violent criminals are already following constitutional guidelines but the average person who obeys the law can not. This bill would level the playing field and let any able minded and bodied person who so wishes to carry a firearm for self defense purposes. This graphic below shows a timeline of the states moving from not issuing gun permits in 1986, to may issue, then shall issue, and finally constitutional carry. If it follows the trends of the other stages it could be a good 15-20 years before this sweeps across the country and our gun rights are restored to where they should be. The second amendment is clear that the people have a right to bear arms for whatever purpose they deem necessary. It has been upheld in the Supreme Court as such and is the law of the land. We do not need permits to exercise our other rights so it shouldn't be needed to exercise our right to carry either. Other Pro-Gun Legislation On The Way Not only is Ohio moving toward constitutional carry, we are also looking to loosen the restrictions on laws already in place. House Bill 201 aims to remove the duty to notify law enforcement that you are carrying a concealed firearm. and House Bill 99 known as the "Second Amendment Protection Act" prohibits any enforcement of any future federal, or state firearms registrations, or firearm ban statute, ordinance, resolution or rule. Basically they'll never be able to take our guns!

  10. What other items/weapons do you carry besides a firearm for concealed carry or self defense purposes?
  11. Once you've went through the steps to get a concealed carry license in Ohio you should carry everyday there on out. One of the biggest obstacles to carrying a firearm everyday is the discomfort that can come from choosing the wrong sized firearm. Firearms are made in a variety of sizes for a reason, one of those reasons is because people come in a variety of sizes. Not to mention firearms also have different uses such as deep concealment all the way to home protection and everything in between. How to Choose the Right Size Firearm For Concealed Carry Choosing the right size firearm is 100% dependent upon the person carrying the firearm. An individual who is 6'5 and 400lbs will have a different need than a person who is 5'2 and 120lbs. Visit your local Ohio Gun Store to find various models and sizes on display and try them out. Handguns come in a wide selection of sizes from sub-compact to full size to meet the needs of the consumers. The smaller the weapon the easier it is to carry. But with small firearms comes certain trade offs such as caliber size, frame size, and being able to properly grip the firearm. Could you imagine a 6"5 guy with massive hands trying to utilize a firearm that's smaller than his pinky finger? At the same time sure that 1911 maybe one cool gun, but if it weighs half as much as you, is it really that practical? Don't Forget the Holster One of the biggest contributing factors to comfortably carrying a concealed weapon is the holster. A good holster can make or break the daily concealed carry experience. Luckily we have a few holster makes in our Ohio Firearm Business Directory that make some quality holsters for a variety of seasons and situations. A good holster should offer protection to your firearm while keeping it close and tight to your body. Most inside the waist holsters clip over the top of your belt and pants so finding a well made one that won't pull up with your gun is essential as well. Once you find a holster its recommended that you practice drawing your EMPTY firearm from the holster multiple times before carrying in public.
  12. The newest gun rights law in Ohio has officially went in to effect this week. It allows employees to bring guns on to company parking lots and licensed Ohioans to carry concealed firearms in more places as well. Many businesses prevented employees from coming to work with their firearm (even if legally allowed to do so) and leaving it in their vehicles, but with the most recent change those employees now have the full protection of the law. Employees can now bring their firearms to work, while leaving them secured in their personal vehicles. Employers can still choose to prohibit guns from entering their facilities if they so wish. But that wasn't the only major change to gun laws in Ohio this week. With further expansion of gun owners rights included in the same bill are: Store their guns in the car while in a school zone Carry in non-secure areas of airports, such as baggage claim. Carry inside daycare centers and home day cares, unless the facilities post a sign prohibiting guns. Colleges and universities across the state can now allow some people or everyone to carry guns on their campuses. One other notable change pertains to active duty military members who wish to carry a concealed firearm. The law no waives the concealed handgun license education and registration requirements for active duty military members with valid military ID and documentation of successful completion of firearms training. Ohio continued to lead the nation in progun legislation for its residents. Since starting to issue licenses since 2004, more than 500,000 residents have active CCW licenses.

Transporting Handguns With A CCW In Ohio In Ohio, with a valid CCW, you can carry the handgun on you, and you can also have a loaded handgun anywhere in the vehicle. Interacting With The Police/Law Enforcement Anytime you have an interaction with the police it is imperative you follow these guidelines to protect yourself and the agent of the law. Do not touch your firearm unless instructed to do so. Immediately notify the officer that you have a concealed carry license, and are carrying a concealed weapon. Do not exit your vehicle unless told to do so. Obey all lawful orders. Keep your hands in plain sight. Places You Can Not Legally Carry (Also Known As Criminal Protection Zones (CPZ's)) There are places that are strictly off limits for concealed carry in Ohio and include the following types of places. Any building or property where there is a "no guns" sign. (See end of page for example of a valid sign) Any law enforcement station or detention facility. Any place that federal law prohibits firearms (Post Offices, Airports for example). Courthouse or building housing a courtroom. Govt. building (dedicated restroom, shelter, car park okay). For places of worship check with your leaders. Institution for the care of mentally ill persons School zone (drop off/pick up okay if you stay in car), college or university (handgun locked in car okay) Child day-care center Wherever federal law prohibits the carrying of handguns Any building or property posted as a “no gun zone”. (Your workplace is no longer included. You may carry to your place of work, and leave the gun and ammo locked in your vehicle.) Consumption of Alcoholic Beverages It goes without saying, consuming alcohol while carrying a firearm is never a good idea and is strictly prohibited. You are allowed to carry in establishments that sell alcohol if you are not consuming it. Observe Common Sense Gun Safety At All Times Anytime you are carrying or around firearms, common sense should be used. Never unholster your weapon if you do not intend to use it. Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction Be aware of your surroundings, and what is behind any potential threats. Follow all posted signs and laws regarding firearms. Example of Valid Ohio No Firearms Allowed Sign Any establishment wishing to restrict entry to persons carry a firearm has that right to do so. They must have a sign like the one post where it is easily visible and would be spotted by the common person. This list is not all inclusive nor is it meant to be.

    We here at Ohio Carry- Northwest Chapter are super excited to announce our Third Annual Christmas Party/Toy Drive. As many of you know 3 years ago this idea was birthed and we ran full steam ahead. We set a goal to help 5 families and ended up with enough stuff to adopt 8 families due to the amazing generosity of you guys. Last year we set a goal to help 15 families and ended up not only adopting 17 families but also donated to Chopin Hall in Findlay, Ohio and to the Hope House also in Findlay. This year we are stepping it up some more and our goal is to adopt 20 families so we will need lots of help to make this happen. Those of you that attended the party in the past know that we had an amazing time with tons of food, music, and good memories. This year we intend to do much better but we need your help starting now. First thing is we need you to plan now to attend and then we need you to invite as many people as possible. This year we have also changed venues and we have moved the party to the Metro Toledo area. We will be having this year's event at Oak Openings Metropark. The way it will work is you purchase an advanced sale ticket for a $15 donation so we can get an accurate head count for food. $10 of this will be refundable the day of the event as long as you bring a new unwrapped toy of equal or greater value. Children 16 and under are free with a paying adult. Tickets will be available soon. This year we will be raffling off at least 3 guns at the party. All proceeds from the raffle will fund the event and the purchase of toys and hams for the families. Tickets will be available soon and you do not need to be present to win. **All winners will be required to do a 4473 via our FFL. Details to follow on the specifics of these guns. The families will be nominated by you our members and then we will try to choose at least 20 families to visit and drop off donations to. Everyone is invited! Kid friendly! You can expect a traditional holiday meal of ham, potatoes, and dinner rolls, as well as a visit by Santa Claus! There will also be www.facebook.com/ThattruckingDJ playing all your Christmas hits for the event! We are pledging to help supply at LEAST 20 families with toys for Christmas this year, with hopes of helping even more. Please join us on December 3rd and bring a toy. Enjoy a hot meal, great music, friendly camaraderie, a chance to meet the leadership of Ohio Carry and Ohio Carry- NW Chapter. Stay tuned to either for more details and a link for tickets! ****Disclaimer: While we would love to see as many people carrying as possible, please take it upon yourself to make sure that you are obeying all laws (local, state, and federal) and procedures, that you can legally be in possession of a firearm and are not under any disability or otherwise barred from owning or possessing a firearm, and that any interactions with law enforcement or the public are respectful and courteous. Ohio Carry does not condone violence, disrespect, or anything that could be misconstrued as disorderly conduct. You are coming to this event as an individual and Ohio Carry is not responsible and cannot be held accountable for any action you commit, or any action taken against you legally or civilly. While we encourage you to flex your rights, please use your own best discretion as to what to do and not to do.

Most the time you will find these instructors to be NRA Certified in a basic pistol safety course. But how do you know which one to go to, or which one is the best? And there is no easy answer to that question unfortunately. There are plenty of certified CCW instructors in the state of Ohio so finding one close won't be an issue. Just make sure you ask if they are certified to teach the course before attending (and paying) for the course. Teaching a course that you aren't certified for is punishable by fine and/or jail time so it is rare you find anyone trying to commit fraud but it does happen. Looking For A Approved Instructor? OHGO has a ever growing database of CCW instructors for the state of Ohio. Just check out our Ohio CCW Instructors database to find one near you.
