It seems like every school I find is west coast. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good reputable school in the Ohio state or maybe one of the surrounding states. I know that some companies like magpul travel, but I was just wondering since it would be nice to get in somewhere and have a solid place to attend yearly.

Options I'm aware of:
Grant used to have a once a month course in NE Ohio.

I also just emailed Jay about his VSM classes in Eastern PA. About a 3hr drive from central OH.

Dave M also runs classes in OH

and TDI is down near Cinci.

Beautiful man. Have you been to TDI at all? I wouldn't mind driving 3 hours for a school. That's not too bad. I know of a bunch of people who are trying to run training courses. I just don't wanna spend money on some guy who watched DVDs to train me :)

ALso if Grants gonna run a class I am gonna go!

Just finished up my third class at TDI. Nothing but good on these guys. Definitely worth your time to check them out.

Chappy with LMS and Pat Rogers with EAG teach at Alliance Ohio usually several times a year. Alliance has a shoothouse also.

I've trained with EAG Tactical and LMS Defense in Alliance, OH for several classes including Shoot House and No Light courses.

I've also taken 2 carbine classes at TDI-Ohio, they have a better facility as far as the ranges go.

Both are solid places to train with good people. Depending on your travel considerations, Alliance has more options for hotels and dining.

There aren't as many options in Ohio since a couple big-name ranges shut their doors a while back here. However, munch520 mentioned a name that I happen to be quite familiar with ;)

Though many of our classes are now conducted out of state (SC in particular) we still do classes in central Ohio (though not as many as before). We have a couple of AAR's on this site if you want to check them out.

Hopefully I can get an AAR up for you all at some point in 2012. Been wanting to schedule some training with you guys for a while - I'll check your schedule out :big_boss:

ETA: the increasing lack of ranges here, especially outdoor, is getting depressing.

Very nice. A buddy and I are already planning to get some face time with Bob V. I can't wait to hit some of these classes listed this year. I am glad we do have a good list in Ohio!

I need to get going on this especially since it is in my back yard.

If West Virginia, is close enough for you, I would recommend Storm Mountain. Depends on what class you would want to take.
