Welcome to the training website for Paladin International, LLC
We offer unique firearm instruction courses for every level of shooter.From teaching the basics to fine tuning the skills of those with more experience, our classes will suit a wide range of interests from the practical to the tactical, in a fun and low key environment that stresses safety above all else.
One of our specialties is teaching inexperienced shooters who want to learn the basics about firearms and understand the fundamentals of shooting but are intimidated by shooting centers and a culture that can appear daunting. We welcome families, teens, seniors, women and men who simply never learned much about guns.
We also teach executive and travel security and awareness for the family and business personnel (including kidnap awareness training), non-lethal defense and home defense. Want something more personal? Paladin is available to provide private or customized lessons, pistol fitting and consultations for individuals, families and groups. Our time is your time. Pick your location, ours or yours.
All of our instructors are NRA certified and are either current or former members of the U.S. Army's Special Forces (Green Berets), international Special Operations personnel or SWAT trained Law Enforcement officers, with years of experience. They make Paladin courses interesting, fun and "non-threatening".
Firearms Courses .
Our NRA certified Basic Pistol courses are taught in a classroom environment, or in your home, with practical shooting practice at our ranch facility or a nearby indoor range. Participants develop comprehensive firearm safety skills in addition to an understanding of the workings of firearms, calibers, types of firearms and their uses, how to clean and store firearms and solid shooting fundamentals. Included in the course is the opportunity to earn the Basic Handgun Qualification patch, the first in a series of marksmanship qualifications programs available through the NRA.
The Basic course is perfect for the rank novice up to more experienced shooters who want to hone some rusty skills, or for family members who are around firearms in the home and want to develop their familiarity. We also offer safety equipment and firearm rentals, personalized pistol fittings, and even realistic "dummy" pistols for those new to sport shooting and who may not initially be comfortable firing the real thing.
Paladin's NRA Basic Pistol Certification will qualify you to apply for a concealed weapon permit (CWP) in the State of Colorado.
This advanced level course is conducted at a private shooting range on the plains of Eastern Colorado where we offer a combination of paper and metal targets for enhanced learning and enjoyment. This class offers some of the finest personalized instruction available and includes learning techniques such as draw and fire, multiple targets, multiple firing ("double tap"), firing from concealment and many other skill sets. You will hone your abilities, shoot more in one day than many people shoot in a year, and have lots of fun seeing just how good you can be with your pistol.
