Geauga Firearms Academy believes all lawful citizens have the right to protect themselves. We also understand that the decision to own and carry a firearm is a huge responsibility. Our goal is to provide training to people with a wide range of skills, experiences, and backgrounds.
Geauga Firearms Academy aims to create a very comfortable experience welcoming to all shooters beginners to advanced. We train year-round (dress accordingly). Our classroom can accommodate class sizes small to large. We are also mobile, and we are able to train anywhere in the nation provided an adequate number of student commitments. Classes are held at Ohio's premier outdoor range C4 in Madison, OH.
