State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all State and Federal Firearms Laws.
Check State Laws. Ohio law has an unusual understanding of a "loaded" firearm in a vehicle. If you have a loaded magazine or speed loader (stripper clips are exempt), in the same vehicle as an otherwise unloaded firearm, Ohio considers that firearm to be "loaded". Therefore, make sure all mags are unloaded during transport.
No ALCOHOL. There is no food on site. General options are available approximately 12 mi away in Marion. Please plan to bring your lunch and plenty of snacks as we do continue instruction through the lunch period. The majority of instruction will be done at 25 meters, so be sure to bring your .22's and save some ammo money. Centerfires are welcome.
