Defensive Training Group courses are offered at the Gainesville Target Range, Gainesville’s premiere outdoor firearm training facility. We are conveniently located in North West Gainesville, in Alachua County Florida only an hour’s drive from Lake City, Ocala, Chiefland and Palatka, Florida. However, many of our students frequently travel from the Jacksonville, Orange Park, St. Augustine, Orlando and the Tampa Bay Area for our personal protection and concealed weapon training classes.

Defensive Training Group offer classes in Personal Protection and Combat Pistol training. Our trainers are graduates of Gunsite, Lethal Force Institute LFI, Smith & Wesson Academy and others. We offer training from NRA and Florida CJSTC firearm instructors.

At Defensive Training Group, gun handling and the safe training with a firearm is our utmost priority. Most frequently, we are asked “What kind of gun should I buy?” and we hope to answer these and other questions in this basic pistol course. We also offer a Women Only Class and Personal One-on-One instruction for an additional fee. Our philosophy on concealed carry is that you need the best personal protection instruction available, at a reasonable and affordable price.
