Permitless Carry in Ohio

"So much more"

I took the Permitless course earlier, and now see the importance of taking the concealed carry. There is so much more than just owning a gun. I learned a lot and got better with my gun skills also.  I intend to continue taking more courses. Thanks again and will see you soon for more learning.
