Why do you only have to do 8 hours of training and not 12 hours? Ohio reduced the training requirement to 8 hours effective March 23, 2015

Why you am I paying $30 to $50 dollars less than other concealed carry courses? We are raising funds for the food pantry. We hope if the class was great, that you donate $10, $20, or $30 to support the food pantry.  We are only able to do this because the church and range is supporting this effort by not charging rent, and we do not have a high employee overhead costs (only independent contractors). And most importantly, we want to you to learn about firearms, safety, legal force options, and responsible handgun ownership. Our philosophy, we offer you a great class and success will follow.
