Hope this finds you and yours well.

Car decals are in!  If you want one (or more), send an e-mail to steve@paladintraining.com with “DECAL” in the subject line.  Up to two are free;  $1 each after that.

Please forward to anyone you know that might be interested.


Train hard; put God first!




Okay, I’m now a UTAH CWP instructor.  I’ll be sending out a schedule for the UTAH classes very shortly in another newsletter.  The classes will be 4+ hours in length and cost $100 ($75 for Paladin alums).

Class Enrollments

  • 28 – 29 SEP BDH:  50%
  • 12 – 13 OCT BCO:  50%
  • 26 – 26 OCT CWP:  25%
  • 23 – 24 NOV BDC:  50%
  • 28 – 30 DEC UBC:  50%

If  you’re interested in attending one of the three carbine courses in the last quarter, get your 50% deposit in ASAP.  If that creates a problem at this time, call me at 843-618-1381 and we’ll see what we can do to help get you in the class.

Book Recommendation: The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Ed.

By Andrew Branca

If you’re interested in staying out of jail after an incident, I think you should read this book.  I hadn’t finished the introduction before I learned something that could be critical to winning the legal aftermath component of The Fight, something obvious but overlooked by me.     

The book is full of useful information and goes into much greater depth on the subject than we have time for in a CWP class.

Also very useful are the links and blog at www.lawofselfdefense.com.  Check them out.   Details on purchasing the book are here as well.

Newsletter Recommendation

For straight talk on tactics, training and more, I strongly encourage you to check out Paul Howe’s website: combatshootingandtactics.com.

Paul publishes a monthly newsletter that I always find worth the time.  He pulls no punches and spares no one he finds guilty of stupidity… or worse.  While I hardly ever finish a newsletter with a warm fuzzy feeling about the future, I always finish with a hardened resolve.  That’s a good thing.


Springfield Armory has issued a recall notice for it’s 3.3″ barreled XDS in both 9 x 19 and .45 ACP.  Details here: www.springfieldrecall.com.

Caracal has issued a recall for all it’s Model C pistols.  Evidently the pistol has a design flaw that’s not correctable.  Send them your gun and they’ll send you money.

I warn people all the time about staying away from new and unproven platforms.  This is one reason why.  Details here:  www.caracal.ae
