Our Mission

At Action Defense LLC in Parma Heights our mission is your personal safety, and the safety of those around you. Our Certified Instructors and Range Officers will train you properly to ensure that you are prepared to safely and legally defend yourself and your loved ones with a handgun.   While we do offer concealed carry classes, we also understand that guns are not for everyone and we strongly advocate for gun alternative (non –lethal) protection as well.
