Defender CWP, LLC was created in order to have a vehicle through which Elias Lykes could provide a business that would, not only meet some very specific needs in the shooting community, but also introduce novice shooters to the world of shooting and self-defense.
Today, we strive to educate and train individuals in concealed weapons procedures, personal protection, home defense, business defense, as well as how to protect yourself in an active shooter situation.
Eli is a retired U.S. Army Warrant Officer with combat experience in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He brings over 20 years of firearm’s training experience to the classroom and the range. He especially enjoys teaching women (and men), “first time” shooters, who have limited, or no, experience with handguns and then guiding them through the process of learning basic pistol shooting and then obtaining a CWP.
All our instructors are NRA (National Rifle Association) certified pistol instructors and SLED (South Carolina Law Enforcement Division) certified CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit) instructors.
Defender Firearms & Training is located at 1070 South Lake Drive Suite G, Lexington, South Carolina 29073. Our office and classroom have been designed to offer our customers and students a “one stop shop” when it comes to firearms, training and accessories.
We truly care about our community and want to train and equip every law-abiding citizen. Defender Firearms & Training is driven and takes great pride when we empower you and your family in personal protection.
