Excellent5.0 Based on 491 reviews from review us onJames PersichittiJames Persichitti ★★★★★ I recently attended the 12/2/23 Basic Handgun class taught by Duke Evans after purchasing my first handgun. The class exceeded my expectations. Duke did an excellent job of discussing the "basics" of using/owning a handgun from safety, shooting, field dressing, etc.. I now feel more confident as a new handgun owner. Highly recommend for any new handgun owner or someone who may need a refresher course. Thank You Duke!Heather LewisHeather Lewis ★★★★★ My husband and I joined Workman Firearms’ CCW class and earned our competency certificates. Adam was an excellent instructor, I took so many notes, and I learned more than I ever imagined—both regarding weapon usage and legal rights/ restrictions. The course was all day but did not at all feel like a long course (I’ve taken 2-hour classes for other reasons that felt way longer than today’s 6-hour classroom + 2 hour range time). Adam was an excellent instructor; I look forward to our next classes with him. The facilities were satisfactory, and staff working were all friendly and helpful. This is only one of likely many excellent activities at Workman Firearms!Dr David BeckmanDr David Beckman ★★★★★ I enjoyed the class I took with my son Aaron!Adam is a well-versed instructor. I also appreciated the immeadiate feedback and range pointers Chris provided. My previous training was in 2012. I expected a boring repitition of facts that I already knew. This class surpassed that training by far. Will look forward to taking further classes.Aaron BeckmanAaron Beckman ★★★★★ Got my Concealed Carry Course here. Adam did a fantastic job I learned a lot. The course has a ton of useful information and they took the time to give one on one instruction to each instructee. Highly recommendFika Mabhajwa NyuswaFika Mabhajwa Nyuswa ★★★★★ Great company, Great investors, it's only when a company serves her investors with truthfulness and reliability that it may produce great investors.

James FarrellJames Farrell ★★★★★ Just finished the ccw class and our instructor Adam was top notch. Adam does a great job of keeping the class engaged and is very knowledgeable, thank you Adam. My range instructor John was awesome as well, he was quick to point out my flaws and helped me keep my shots in the black. I will be signing up for the ccw tactics class next.Ahmad DarjamalAhmad Darjamal ★★★★★ Great people highly recommendStephanie BluffestoneStephanie Bluffestone ★★★★★ Classroom instruction was very well designed to answer all questions that might come up. Chris was able to answer questions that came up. He made sure that we all understood what was being taught. Chris took time with each person to make sure their grip, stance and sight was correct even before shooting. Highly recommend this classEric KitzmillerEric Kitzmiller ★★★★★ Gabriel WhelanGabriel Whelan ★★★★★ WOW! I can say many things, all positive except for one negative (by choice)! Recently completed the Ohio Concealed Carry Course at Range 42 in Norton. I retired from the Navy last year after 21 years of honorable service and have only fired a weapon...once in bootcamp one week prior to 11 September and last weekend. Was unsure and or scared for several years to purchase a firearm due to friends / acquaintances taking their lives with a weapon. However, after completing this class, learning the proper safe procedures and techniques on how to handle a fireman was amazing! CHRIS RUDY was the facilitator and deserves the highest recommendation and appreciation in his job performance! On a negative note but no fault but my own. I will spend more $$$ at the range often, take more classes/courses, etc. But all in all... no regrets, love it and looking forward to it! Thank you again CHRIS RUDY, the staff at Workman Firearms and Range 42. -Gabe WhelanNick KosturaNick Kostura ★★★★★ Dave MDave M ★★★★★ I got a lot of good information from going to this class! The instructor Chris Rudy was very knowledgeable and easy to understand.Stephanie BailesStephanie Bailes ★★★★★ Enrolled at the Barber Rd location for CCW class. Adam was an incredible instructor and very knowledgeable in every aspect of the topic. He came across friendly and approachable. He made the classroom a comfortable learning environment. Once it came to the range time he took the time with each student to ensure appropriate safety, handgun hold, and target hits; that these were the best the student was capable of and would leave with a feeling of being successful. I would absolutely recommend this class to everyone!!!Brian HammondBrian Hammond ★★★★★ Akron CCW Class was outstanding! Adam F. was the instructor and did a great job covering the material. He kept it interesting so time would keep moving. He helped were needed while on the range and definitely knows his stuff. Looking forward to returning. Just need a few more AF flags! LOLI highly recommen this location and Range 42!!Justin NewtonJustin Newton ★★★★★ Joshua PowellJoshua Powell ★★★★★ Adam was a great instructor. Very informative, patient, and made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed during the ccw course and while doing the live fire portion. Would highly recommend getting your license here!Jerry CottrellJerry Cottrell ★★★★★ Knowledgeable fun staff. Chilly classroom. Good powerpoints. 1000% recommend even after constitutional carry.Ken O'ConnorKen O'Connor ★★★★★ Excellent training experience. Site was comfortable, well kept and well equipped.

Buzz is a great instructor and kept the class moving right along. The time flew by. He spent individual time with each of us at the gun range. I highly recommend taking his class.ØD P-RØD P-R ★★★★★ I attended one of Workman Firearms' CCW/CHL courses. Our instructor, Nick Quella, was concise, informative, and engaging. He easily could've just boringly listed off all of the rules, protocols, and training materials, but he went above and beyond in presentation. He ensured that everyone in the class comprehended the material- especially in regards to safety-and provided ample opportunity for audience interaction and questions to be answered, which he did promptly and without ambiguity. The course wasn't just educational, but actually entertaining, which defintiely aids to the rentention of the vital information being provided. Would absolutely recommend.Sonny ReeseSonny Reese ★★★★★ Great class with a great instructor!Dezmond RozekDezmond Rozek ★★★★★ Chris was a great teacher for the class and made everything fun to learn.

First time shooting and everyone that assisted in the process was helpful.Markis MooreMarkis Moore ★★★★★ Great range and absolutely great classes!Crystal MooreCrystal Moore ★★★★★ The training experience was great, very educational!Tim MillerTim Miller ★★★★★ My Wife and I took the CCW class , we were both very impressed with the way Adam conducted the class and kept everyone's attention.

The instructors were qualified and experienced. Better yet... they made learning the material fun. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge!Alexander R. WalkerAlexander R. Walker ★★★★★ 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 LaPonzaJason LaPonza ★★★★★ 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!Natalie TegovskiNatalie Tegovski ★★★★★ 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!Mark HershbergerMark Hershberger ★★★★★ 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!Kelly NicholsonKelly Nicholson ★★★★★ 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 HARRYShannon CampbellShannon Campbell ★★★★★ 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 🙂
Stephanie ChiarielloStephanie Chiariello ★★★★★ 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.Steven CushmanSteven Cushman ★★★★★ 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

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.
