CCW Class, Roger Polk

Postby michaelap » Mon Apr 26, 2010 1:44 pm

My wife needed to take a class, and I decided to go along and take it with her since my resident Va permit will expire next year and I will most likely get an ohio license. Well this class was not only a hell of a lot cheaper than most charge but it was also in plain words an outstanding presentation! It was nice to have the Medina Co. sheriff there for some Q&A. The fact that the sheriff is always invited and always shows on his own time is impressive. I wanted to offer up my two cents because I have read some folks criticize just a bit unfairly. I would reccomend this class if wadsworth isn't too far for you. Anyone can search this site and find his phone number.

Agreed! My wife took his class and I went along. He and the other presenters/instructors are very good. Sometimes you get a bunch of yahoos in the crowd jabbering and not paying attention, remember it'll be a large packed classroom. Overall was fine. I went to get a certificate for renewal for later. Good basic course, but I'd suggest a self defense pistol course in addition to the basic pistol class.

It was my first CHL course actually, as i used my DD-214 for my first license.

The pen might not be mightier than the sword, but maybe the printing press was heavier than the siege weapon. Just a few words can change everything.
Sometimes, the best answer is a more interesting question.

I also took his class and found it to be excellent. When I get back from Florida, I have four or five other people that I am going to take to his class. He is deeply involved with his convictions and to me a true Patriot.

I'm glad to see Roger's reputation extolled by you guys. He is truly a patriot. When I took his class, he wanted to have some fun shooting after the class and provided the ammo himself. They don't come any better or knowledgeable.

There is another discussion on this forum regarding the possibility of some mis-information regarding CCW/OC being presented in the class offered by Mr. Polk.

Here is that thread:

http://ohioccwforums.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=42071

As I understand it, a participant in one of his classes claimed he was informed that once you have your CHL, it would be illegal for you to open carry. Can any of you that have taken his class recently, confirm if this was the way it was presented in the class?

No he states his strong opinion on open carry but doesn't state it as law.

Michaelab you state you live in ohio but i assume you are operating on a virginia resident license. when you moved to ohio would that license become invalid
