Training calendar 4Q2021

  Comments: None


Heads up!  Here’s the training schedule for the last quarter of 2021:

Defensive Carbine 1 (DC1)  11 – 12 SEP

Defensive Handgun 1 (DH1)  9 – 10 OCT

Defensive Carbine 2 (DC2)  13 – 14 NOV

Urban Break Contact (UBC)  10 – 12 DEC

All are currently scheduled to be held at the Darlington County SO range at Lake Darpo.  Additional details will be posted on the website courses page.

Classes build on the previous class.  So, DC1 is a prerequisite for DC2 and DC2 is a prerequisite for UBC.  Exceptions are made based on experience and training.  Ask.

Still tweaking the lesson plans in view of the ammunition situation (which is getting better daily), but the course descriptions now on the website are close enough for planning purposes.

You can reserve a seat in any class by sending a deposit of $100 via PayPal to  A check is fine if you don’t do PayPal.  Make it payable to Paladin Training and send it to POB 12752, Florence, SC 29504.  Be sure to note in the memo section which class(es) it’s for.


Last year we received a grant that enabled us to offer free one day basic AR15 classes.  The grant money was used for tuition, ammunition and three AR15 carbines.  Students paid nothing to attend, all ammunition was provided, and we even had carbines for those that didn’t have one.  The class was called ‘Basic AR’ (BAR) and was / is a technical class.  We anticipate the grant being renewed and, if it is, we’ll add BAR classes to the above schedule as range availability allows.

The Book of Faces

I’m going to make an effort to overcome my dislike of the Facebook business format and be more active in the future on the Paladin Training page.  Please be sure to visit and ‘like’ us if you haven’t already done so.

Something New

If you haven’t trained with us yet, we’ll need a reference from ONE of the following:

  1. LEO
  2. Pastor
  3. Paladin alum

Have them email me at

Any questions, same e-mail.

Thanks for subscribing to our newsletter.  Hope to see you in a class soon.  In the meantime, keep building that team.
