NRA Personal Protection (Pistol II)
Cabela's. 1650 Gemini Place, Columbus, OH 43240. Begins 10am. 

Walk in Cabela's when they open at 10am, go to the left near the cash registers. We'll be in the meeting space next to the cafe.  DO NOT BRING OPEN GUNS INTO CABELA's. YOU MAY CARRY IF YOU HAVE A CARRY LICENSE, BUT YOU MAY NOT HANDLE YOUR GUN DURING CLASSROOM TIME.

Before coming to class:

  • Print and fill out the form linked here. Give to the instructor as you arrive. If you do not have a printer, we will have forms available at the class. 
  • Buy at least 75 rounds of factory loaded ammo. If you can't find it, you can buy from us. 
  • Remember the safety rules: safe direction, finger off the trigger, unloaded until you're ready to use it. 



  • How do I get to the classroom?  Directions here.  Across the street from Polaris mall, near Costco. 
  • Where do we shoot? Private land owned by one of our instructors. 
  • What should I bring? Your gun if you have one, at least 75 rounds of ammo, and eye/ear protection for the range (if you have it, if not we'll supply), and a holster if you have one. 
  • What if I don't have a gun?  You can use ours free of charge. 
  • What should I wear? Dress appropriately for an outdoor shooting range. It is a good idea to bring an umbrella if it looks like it might rain, sunblock, or anything else you may need for being outdoors for a few hours. Do not wear opened-toe shoes. 
  • Where is the class? We start at Cabela's then to the range. We will contact you if there's an issue with the facilities that will require the schedule to be modified. 
  • What if I just want to learn to shoot? If you don't wish to apply for a carry license, you can stay through the range time (about 11am) to learn gun safety and how to shoot (including using our guns). You can leave whenever you like, but you must stay 8 hours if you wish to apply for a Florida non-resident carry license or 12 hours if you wish to apply for an Ohio. 
  • What about meals? We take breaks and Cabela's has an excellent, inexpensive deli and fudge shop!
  • Can I bring someone with me? Everyone must be registered to ensure space and materials. 
  • What if I have a disability? Please let the instructor know prior to registering. 

Call or text (614) 636-CCW1 (614-636-2291) if you need assistance purchasing ammo or get lost on the way to the class.
