...Ohio Concealed Carry Laws, page 2


If you DO NOT have a license, you may not transport a firearm in a vehicle unless it is unloaded and carried in the following ways:

  • In a closed package, box or case,
  • In a compartment that can be reached only by leaving vehicle
  • In plain sight and secured in a rack or holder made for that purpose [i.e. rifle or shotgun]
  • No ammunition is in the firearm in question, and no ammunition is loaded into a magazine or speed loader that may be used with the firearm in question, and that it is located no where connected to the firearm. [i.e. gun in trunk and ammunition in glove box or console]
ORC 2923.16(B) and (C) and (K)(1)(a) govern how firearms must be transported in a vehicle without  CHL

All OH classes after 3/23/15 will be 8 hours due to new state law.
Class begins at 9 am sharp. Gate opens at 8:45 am, and closes at 9:05 am.
Since class time has been shortened, there is lots of material to cover in less time,
therefore we cannot start late.  If you are late, you will need to reschedule.

Some Ohio Sheriffs' may not accept the new On-Line Certifications unless they have all their training credentials and verification of time spend on the on-line course presented on their Certification.  You will also need your range portion of the course verified.  Some instructors may not offer this shortened Range Certification option.  Before spending your money on ON-LINE-COURSE make sure it will be accepted at your local Sheriff office..

The Reason We Suggest Wives or other Family Members take Class on the same Day:

from..."What SB184 "Castle Doctrine" means to you:  Part IV  —  Transportation of Unloaded Firearms
By Jim Irving  07/10/2008
http://www.buckeyefirearms.org/node/5781/  [near bottom of article]
"For anyone who has both a CHL and a spouse, I highly recommend your spouse obtain their CHL even if they never plan to carry a gun. It is the cheapest form of insurance you will find for being charged with your loaded gun if you must leave your weapon with them in a vehicle."
  • If you have a CCW Permit, the plain sight provision has been removed from law, therefore, a loaded gun can be carried in a holster in console or glovebox.
  • If for any reason you exit vehicle without the gun and your wife is in vehicle, she could be charged for having access to a loaded gun.
  • This could happen even if you stepped out of vehicle for a moment to talk to a law officer.  She would then be at risk.
  • Carrying a CCW Permit would offer her protection at all times from prosecution, even if she elects never to carry a gun herself. 
  • It is also a great idea to have members of family educated in gun operation and safety.
