Center Mass Ltd. was established in 2004 in response to Ohio passing concealed carry. Early in 2004, it had become apparent that the quality of training being offered to Ohio's concealed carry license holders varied widely. Even more disturbing was the staggering array of incorrect legal information being offered by instructors.
In response, Ken Hanson, an Ohio attorney, began Center Mass Ltd. and produced The Ohio Guide to Firearm Laws. Ken has served as a Chief Assistant County Prosecutor and Court Appointed Counsel in major felony cases, and currently serves as a municipal prosecutor. Ken has served as counsel of record in numerous civil and criminal concealed carry cases throughout Ohio, including two in the Ohio Supreme Court. In addition, Ken is a Life NRA Member, Range Safety Officer, Certified NRA Instructor in Home Firearm Safety, Basic Pistol, Personal Protection, Ohio Concealed Carry and Utah Concealed Carry. Ken also shoots in USPSA competitions in the Limited and Limited 10 categories. Ken regularly lectures on Ohio's concealed carry laws. Ken's essays have been published on a variety of websites and print publications, including U.S. Concealed Carry Magazine and Ohio Outdoor News, with numerous other news media appearances in print and broadcast format.
Center Mass Ltd. holds a Type 01 FFL and is a full service gun dealer, including firearm accessories.
