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.




Thank you for a very well ran, knowledge intense CCW class.  Being a beginner I was nervous that all others would be very experienced handgun operators.  The class is set up so that the level of experience does not matter so my wife and I felt very comfortable.  We both look forward to taking future classes at Black Wing!!!
