Ohio Concealed Carry Law
Obtaining a concealed handgun permit in Ohio is a privilege earned by those who complete a thorough application and training regimen. With this privilege comes a responsibility to be aware of the common sense rules of safe firearm handling, the laws that affect how, when and where license holders can carry a firearm and how to properly use the handgun to defend yourself or another person.
You must have an appointment to process your concealed carry application. Walk-ins are not accepted. In order to facilitate the appointment process, we prefer that you book your appointment online.
