We keep our courses to a manageable size because you deserve personal attention when dealing with your personal safety!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is my CCW Permit Valid? 

Ohio is part of a concealed handgun carry reciprocity agreement with other states, allowing those who obtain their permit in Ohio to still have permission with the agreed on states for it to be respected while outside of Ohio. View the CCW reciprocity map Ohio, here

Do I need to bring my own gun to the CCW Classes? 

You may certainly bring your own or you may choose from Black Wing's firearms. Most people will choose a .380ACP, 9MM or 45ACP. 

Will we get a lunch break? 

Yes. Our CCW course is 8 1/2 hrs long to allow you have a 30 minute meal break. Please remember to bring your lunch with you and any snacks or beverages, to sustain you through the day. We are a 10 minute drive away from a few fast food locations, however that will not provide much time to actually enjoy your meal break. Class will begin promptly after your 30 minute break.




I made the trip from Cleveland, OH as I had heard the Black Wing CCW education course was second to none. Let me tell you the drive was absolutely worth it--the program did not disappoint! Whether it was the hands-on, in-depth training or the state-of-the-art facilities it truly was a pleasure to spend the day with the Black Wing team. I highly recommend for all your marksmanship needs!
