There are regulations in Ohio— you must have a clean criminal and mental health record, you have to be 21, and even with the license, you cannot carry concealed guns in schools, day-care centers or churches. You also have to spend 12 hours meeting a training requirement.
The NRA has played a key role in pushing for these laws; most of these laws implicitly or explicitly require people to get NRA training. The NRA opposed proposed alternative legislation that removes the training requirement.
Importantly, these baseline courses entail limited firearms training: According to law, students can fulfill the requirement by shooting fewer than 100 rounds of ammunition and spending two hours on the range. While the course provides baseline proficiency in target shooting, additional training should be taken to extend the knowledge and experience with firearms that provide people with tools for safety and protection.
NRA Personal Protection in the Home is the next choice for those who are seeking additional live-fire and classroom training. This personal protection course requires shooters to score (hit) a minimum of 98 rounds on target from different protective positions. This normally requires shooter to shoot more between 200 t0 300 rounds to meet the minimum score.
