Remember that Paladin Training, Inc. is a tax-exempt non-profit under IRS Section 501(c)(3). All gifts are tax deductible.
Administrative note to class organizers: If you’re the organizer for a private class, don’t count on your people actually showing up for the class UNLESS YOU HAVE THEIR MONEY. Yeah, I know it’s your family and they wouldn’t do you that way. Listen, if Billy Graham and the Pope said they were coming to a class, I wouldn’t believe either one of them until I had their money in my hands. And that’s my advice to you.
Please continue to train and get ready; physically, mentally and spiritually!
Intro to Defensive Handguns Tonight
One of the greatest benefits of the class is realized when you go to buy your first defensive handgun: You’ll start out much higher on the learning curve than the average first-time buyer who is dependent on either gunshop personnel or friends to steer him in the right direction.
JUST ONE EXAMPLE
What we usually find: You DO have the strength to rack the slide; you’re just not using your strength efficiently… which is the PC way of saying, ‘You’re doing it wrong’. I can’t count the number of people that found they COULD rack the slide on a semi-auto once they were taught the correct way to do it.
Since there’s no live ammunition present during the hands on portion, this is a safe, stress-free way to learn how to handle and operate handguns.
Cost is $50. If you take this class, I’ll take $25 off your SC CWP class tuition.
Contact me to let me know you’re coming or if you need more information.
Important Notice: SC CWP
We have two SC CWP classes remaining in 2015: 6 & 7 NOVEMBER (this weekend) and 11 & 12 DECEMBER. We have room in both.

Emergency Preparedness III
Low Light Handgun
I don’t know anywhere else you can get a dedicated low-light defensive handgun class, even though the odds are that you’re more likely to need a handgun at night, or someplace it’s dark, than in broad daylight where 99.9% of all training takes place.
Paladin has been conducting low light training in every defensive firearm class since our beginning in 2000. We’ve learned a lot in that time. Seriously consider this class. Where else can you go to learn and practice low light techniques live fire?
A huge thank you to the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office for allowing us to push the training envelope.
- Cost: $200 ($175 for Paladin alum / $100 for full time LEO / $0 for active duty military and SCARNG)
- Prerequisite: Defensive Handgun 1 or outside equivalent
- Location: Lake Darpo, Society Hill, SC
