Welcome to Paladin Tower Tactics “The Basics of Firearms” course. My name is Scott Willey, and I want to sincerely thank you for trusting me with your firearms training needs. I applaud you for taking your first steps towards gun ownership and choosing to defend yourself and others with a firearm.
As you are aware, our country was founded with a “Bill of Rights.” This was the first 10 amendments to our Constitution that the framers of our Government and Country deemed necessary to recognize. The 2nd of these amendments was a provision that directly relates to the right of the people to own firearms. Here is what I want you to take to heart: The Bill of Rights is NOT a list of things that the Government is allowing you to have, it is a list of rights that the Government is to RECOGNIZE. Your rights, including the right to own a military grade firearm, is a right given to you by God, and recognized by our government. Whether the Bill of Rights existed or not, you have been made in the Image of Almighty God and thus you have rights given to you by your Creator. This is crucial to understanding why you can own a firearm.
Rights apply to everyone. They apply to the qualified as well as the unqualified, the idiot and the professional. With your rights, you have the burden to be responsible in the exercise of them. As the first priority, you will be held accountable to God based on how you treated His Son, Jesus the Messiah- weather your reject Him or surrender to Him in this life. As the second priority you will give an account to God for how you exercise your rights as it relates to your fellow humans. It is your responsibility to seek out the ability to use a firearm safely and competently. The ability to defend yourself with deadly force is incredibly sobering. It is your burden to make sure that you can use the rights you have been given with out abusing them out of ignorance or recklessness. It is my aim to get you introduced to the reality of this responsibility and to understand that you ALONE must be prepared for The Gunfight, The Legal Fight, and the Spiritual Fight.
May God bless you and your family. May His favor rest on you. May the Peace of Jesus be given to you through repentance of Sin and Faith in what He did for you on the Cross of Calvary 2,000 years ago.

Here is a YouTube video that is mandatory to watch prior to training. I highly recommend reading Jeff Cooper’s “Principles of Personal Defense,” prior to class (included for your convenience in the same email you receive this packet in).
Watch this video before you come train, (I recommend watching it multiple times)
The basics course exists to teach students about the “tools of Liberty.” You will learn about various types of firearms and how they function. The primary goal of this class is to teach students firearms safety and function. The goal of the class will be to build confidence in students through education and weapons familiarization. Ultimately Paladin Tower Tactics exists to teach students how to survive the Gunfight, the Legal Fight, and the Spiritual Fight. Therefore, we will touch on the legal and spiritual ramifications of a deadly force encounter. Class discussions and questions are encouraged!

1. You do not need to bring a firearm to class with you. I will have a rifle and pistol ready for you to shoot.
2. You will need 50 rounds of 9mm practice ammunition for each shooter that will be participating.
3. You will need 50 rounds of 5.56x45 rifle practice ammunition for each shooter that will be
participating. There will be no steel core ammo allowed on the range (green tip).
4. Hearing protection.
5. Eye protection – clear eye protection. Sunglasses and reading glasses are not adequate eye protection.
6. Appropriate clothing – no flip flops or tank tops. I recommend pants, t-shirt, and some type of boot or shoe. Ladies, please do not wear inappropriate clothing. The more skin that is exposed the more likely hot shell casings will find their way down your shirts, thus burning you and creating scars, just be modest for more than one reason. Remember rain gear, bug spray, or sunscreen – whatever the weather or season requires.

Prior to unloading your range gear, we will meet briefly to collect your release of liability form. We will then go over firearms safety and range rules. Class will last 4 hours or until all curriculum is completed.
