This was a great class. Our instructor was amazing and very patient!!! Learned a lot !
CCW class was great!Adam is very knowledgeable and great instructor.
Excellent Instructor (John) for Basic Handgun. Very nice slides, presentation, pace, and range time. Thank you!
Husband and I took the CCW class and the 2 instructors, Adam and John, were awesome! Very knowledgeable, kept us engaged and we learned a lot while making it fun! The class did not seem like it was 8 hrs and we walked away better prepared than when we came in! Highly recommended taking this course, you will not be disappointed! Thanks again...Pat & Monica Barth
Adam and John were super engaging, professional, and knowledgeable instructors. I learned way more from this course than I even expected and feel even more prepared. I will come to them for all future classes and training.
The instructor Adam in the CCW class is very funny and he gives detailed inside of what you can correct to achieve better results with accuracy.
I had a great time! The guys really know what they are talking about. And who doesn’t like some range time?
Adam was an amazing instructor for the CCW class. Recommend for anyone.
Informative class! Knowledgeable instructor.
Highly recommend!
CCW class was very informative and instructor was great. Definitely would recommend.
I took the CCW course with Adam and Craig. They were extremely knowledgeable. They made the course interesting and entertaining with real life experiences and stories.I would seriously recommend anyone who is considering carrying to consider taking this course and get your certification not only for your protection but to understand the new laws and how they apply with and without the CCW.Hats off to Range 42 for creating such an educational and informative program.A special thank you to Chris for having the patience to work with me on the range. I sincerely appreciate the time you took with me to explain things. You definitely made me less nervous. 😊Thank you again!
Instructors are super cool and range is awesome
Took the CHL class with chris as our instructor. Fantastic course with lots of really good knowledge. Chris was an incredible instructor and truly made the experience fun, educational, and professional. Planning on taking more classes and clinics, would 1000% recommend for anyone new to guns or interested in classes.
This experience was excellent. I feel like as long as I keep these fundamentals and with more practice I will be a great/ responsible cleaner
I had a great experience in this class I definitely recommend taking it with Adam or Craig !!
Great learning experience. The teacher was very hands on and informative! Definitely recommend!
Very informative. Instructor was very engaging.
Great experience and instructors were very knowledgeable
Today 4/6/24 my wife Ashley and I travelled almost 2hrs for the Ohio CCW class. Adam and Craig were great. The class was extremely informative and the material delivered in an engaging manner which I appreciate more than I can express. They were honest and the information they shared beyond the class material shows they are truly invested for the betterment of people. This is rare these days. We made it back late this evening and in the morning we will be booking 2 additional classes. We hope we have the same instructors for those. We were asked to provide not just praise but also any feedback they could use to improve the program. This is hard to provide any flaws because I feel it was great. If I could give anything I am nitpicking. My wife and I discussed a lot on our trip home and I can only mention 2 things. The first I don’t know if you can do anything about as I respect the range is a business but it would be limiting the type of firearms others were shooting during the range instruction. The instructors were trying to teach and some guys were going heavy on shotguns and a desert eagle making it impossible to hear instructions. The second item would be to advise students to bring anti-fog safety glasses. This completely skipped my mind as a potential issue. My safety glasses fogged up and it was difficult to see at a point. I should have worn my eye glasses but I was under the impression they weren’t considered eye protection. That was my mistake. I highly recommend booking with Workman for this training.
Did the CFL training with Workman Firearms. The course was very pragmatic and professional, and equipped me with the important knowledge and practice necessary to safely carry and use a firearm.
Very knowledgeable and helpful instructors. They take their time with each and every student and really walk you through the process and responsibilities of having a concealed carry permit.
Adam and Craig were excellent instructors, I had taken a course years ago and the knowledge and skills of these instructors was excellent and very well worth the time and money invested. I look forward to returning for additional advanced training
Workman Firearms Training Group is professional and on point. They make the class very entertaining and cover in detail lots of different and important topics. Highly recommended. The offer CCW and so much more!
great experience!
Good class
Best class
Took ccw certification course instructed by Adam. I recommend it! I was originally referred by my partner and his friend. The instructors in class and in range were knowledgeable and willing to help. As a woman, I felt comfortable and properly educated. There were also 5 other women in our 14 count class. Continuous opportunities for training/education are encouraged in ccw course and the company offers plenty of extra courses which I’d like to come back to check out.
The class was very informative and extremely fun. The instructor (Adam F.) was REALISTIC. He not only went over the actual rules and laws but how it actually applies in real world scenarios. This is actually my second time taking the class and both times I have nothing but great things to say
great place, good people
Great CCW course. Very informational. Had a lot of fun.
Great facility and staff! Highly recommend! My husband and I took the beginning class this morning. Learned all about the gun, how to load and shoot and then clean. Very thorough class and the staff is excellent. They are very patient!
Duke, John, and Collin conducted a very thorough and educational Basic Handgun course. Highly recommend this class and the handgun cleaning class. Super Job Guys!
I was so grateful that a friend told me about this rang and the CCW class. I did not hesitate to sign up. The instructor, Adam, was fantastic and kept my attention the whole time. Very knowledgeable. The other instructors during the range time were fantastic as well. They were so patient and taught me some other really key techniques and practices. I would highly recommend anyone who is considering here to get their CCW or just to practice to come!
I’ve used the range here and taken their concealed carry class all very professional and worth the price.
The instructor (Chris) did a fantastic job of instructing a wide variety of skill levels which is not easy to do! He was patient and professional and fun at the same time. Safety was #1 and constantly enforced! I am sending my wife to a class, I am positive that they can do a better job than I can. Also a wide variety of extra training is available which I/we will be attending. Could not recommend this group higher!
Great CCW class, I'll be back for. Ore training
CCW class was awesome! We learned a lot about concealed carry laws & basics of gun safety! Very Informative!
Just took class. The guys are Great. Very knowledgeable & down to earth. Highly recommend their training.
My wife and I took the Intro to Handguns course with Duke and loved it! Duke was skilled at communicating the importance of the information while still keeping the mood light. I went in knowing very little about how a gun actually works and how to handle one, and left feeling much more comfortable and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this class to anyone considering purchasing a handgun, or just wanting an intro in general!
Just finished up the CCW class with Scott. He is a fantastic instructor and easy to listen to. When we got out on the range he gave me a couple cues to correct my low left, off of that I knew what to do but he made it click with me in our time out there. Highly recommended Workman Firearm courses.
This is a great place to get your CCW!
1/13/24—Just completed the Basic Handgun course taught by Dale. Found the level of knowledge imparted through this class to be outstanding for someone like myself who’s never fired a handgun. Each of the associated instructors was very patient and student focused with their instruction and words of encouragement. I left feeling like I “knew what I was doing” with my gun and would very much recommend this training for those interested in gun safety and proper handling of handguns.
My husband and I took the basic handgun class before purchasing a handgun. Duke was very knowledgeable and professional. He made us feel at ease firing a handgun for the first time and is very patient with everyone. I would definitely recommend the class.
Great company, Great investors, it's only when a company serves her investors with truthfulness and reliability that it may produce great investors. This awesome company has been making thousands of people millionaires every year according to the company's info. At first I doubted, but at a point I decided to give them a trial and here I am now sharing my testimony. You too can benefit from this same company from anywhere around the world, you only have to contact one of the company manager person like Mrs. Kirkland Tina to help you grow your investment capital within a week, Contact her via

Highly recommend the Medical Trauma class! The instructor was down to earth and knowledgeable!
What a great class! My son and I had Scott and he was an awesome teacher! Highly recommend taking class here .
Buzz is a WONDERFUL instructor. He was incredibly animated which kept my interest the entire time. There is so much you can learn from his experience and knowledge. All of the other employees were very knowledgeable. Answering any questions with real life experiences and education. I grew up around firearms, and have shot before, yet I learned so much today about laws, handling, types, etc.

HIGHLY recommend their CCW class regardless of your background! There’s always something to learn or refresh.
I Just Took the CCW class at Range 42 with Workman Firearms today .
What a AWESOME CLASS !!!!!!!!!
I recommend this class to everyone . Tom Dillon was-my instructor . He is a fantastic teacher ,
Extremely knowledgeable and made the class fun .
It was a fast 8 hr day and I am so glad I took this class with them . I look forward to more classes with Workman Firearms .
I am not one to make reviews . But this is a great company and deserves it .
I am a veteran and a first responder and I was extremely impressed with their knowledge and experience’s .
Range instructors were also fantastic . They were very knowledgeable and patient and great teachers .
I Will never go anywhere ever again .

Fantastic instructors, knowledgeable, friendly. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Great CHL and Trauma Medical classes. The instructors were qualified and experienced. Better yet... they made learning the material fun. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge!
Adam was a amazing instructor. He is safe, detailed and articulate. Definitely going to take more advanced courses at workman. Amazing staff. Felt comfortable with the one on one instructors for my CHL class. Over all to be honest best range experience I have ever had. Felt comfortable. I would highly recommend there CHL classes to anyone who wants to get one. Awesome prices for there range and classes. Felt as is I could trust any of them with my life. They care about your safety and theirs. In my experience this is one of the safest and polite ranges I have been to.
Jason was an amazing instructor. I would recommend any of there classes. I myself attended the ccw class with Jason and the knowledge I walked out with was awesome. I was so not looking forward to sitting in class 6 hrs but because the way Jason taught it felt like I was there for an hour. I was actually bummed when it was over, I wanted more lol! I also want to give a shot out to the range instructors. They do an amazing job! Thanks Jason & team!
Buzz was very detailed and thorough during the teaching session. He (and everyone there) were extremely respectful and patient with the students. My trainer in the range was Cheryl, she made me feel SO comfortable and especially confident since she knew it was my first time. Definitely recommend anyone who is interested in taking a CCW class to take it though here!
Went today with my son to the Norton location for our CCW class. The instructor BUZZ was great! Class was informative And well done. The range coach also really put the right instructions where we needed! Thank you!
Buzz my instructor was phenomenal, took the time to go over the material and help the class get full information about gun safety/handling. My shooting instructor Harry, made me comfortable to shoot. By far the best line coach I’ve experienced!!!! Will come back for Harry and Harry only (maybe the desk girls too) THANK YOU BUZZ AND HARRY
Fantastic CCW class.

Our instructor, Tom, was excellent. It's a long class with a ton of information, but Tom kept the class engaged and focused.

My range coach, Dan, was also excellent. He gave me great instruction and feedback during my shooting section.

I will be signing up for other classes here after the great experience of this one.

Note for the CCW class: There is only a 30 minute lunch break (2-3) 5-min breaks throughout so make sure to pack a lunch because there isn't much readily available, and have a drink handy in the classroom 🙂
The one-day CCW class was not only comprehensive, informative, and professional, our instructor Buzz Johnson was funny and engaging without ever losing his laser focus on safety first. The emphasis on safety follows from the classroom to the range time, where you get a 1:1 line instructor to coach you on stance, grip, etc. One other noteworthy aspect—our instructor addressed the unique challenges for concealed body carrying for women and offered some tips on finding resources. I would recommend this course not only to secure a CCW license but for anyone with a firearm who wants to know how to properly handle it.
Renee and I just went to range 42 and shot off 2 clips and we signed up for the family membership and our CCW instructor Tom Dillion was there. He gave me a some ideas why my majority of my shot went to left. Will try next time. Thanks Tom!!!
I would totally recommend this place and workman firearms for all your training needs
Top notch CCW/CHL training.Nick Quella was our instructor and made 9 hour day fly by while being informative and entertaining. Looking forward to taking additional training from this team and highly recommend.
Awesome class with Nick Quella! Very knowledgeable and made the day go so quickly. Love the one on one instruction. John was so helpful and really fixed my grip. I’ll be signing up for the Pistol Diagnostics to continue with my learning!
The instructors are fantastic and make the class very interesting!Adam was great and my range coach was wonderful!
Absolutely amazing. Would recommend their service to anyone.
I took the CHL class yesterday and the class instructor Tom was very knowledgeable and my shooting instructor Adam was awesome and corrected my shooting when I needed it. I highly recommend going to take the class at this location.
Thank you so much for being patient with me and teaching me the proper stance and hold so I can defend myself and my family! I would highly recommend you to friends and family!
I took the CHL/CCW class from Chris Rudy this past Saturday. He's a really excellent instructor, personable & informative. The hours just flew by. Highly recommended.
Jason Soco was our classroom instructor today. He held a very interesting course with a lot of good information.
As a testament to how well he did, I am someone who can doze off 10 minutes into most anyone talking. I am proud to say I was alert and interested the entire class. I also was surprised how quick time passed.
Great job!
Adam was my range instructor and helped me to zero in on the target. Basically he was also a great instructor.
you can't go wrong with these instructors.
Loved this training - would definitely recommend attending. Trainers Nick and Cheryl were great. Left feeling very knowledgeable and comfortable with the material and guns. Nick was incredibly well informed and shared lots of stories that made the material more relatable.
Just took the class today and I learned a lot! The guys are very informative and thorough. I needed a handgun class for dummies and I felt I got it kudos to Adam who was my line coach because I was a nervous wreck and scared shitless. Just recommended them to my parents and I want my girls to take their class also.
