Defensive Handgun 2 - Critical Principles

Building on the skills learned in the Defensive Handgun 1 class, our Defensive Handgun 2 class now narrows the focus to specific concealed carry techniques and tactics. Specifically, this class will expose students to foundational gun-fighting concepts that will increase their ability to successfully defend themselves with a handgun.

This is an all-day class from 9AM-6PM. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for paperwork completion. Students get one hour for lunch.

What makes our Defensive Handgun 2 class unique is that all of the lessons learned from Defensive Handgun 1 and this class culminate with students having the opportunity to assess their proficiency in realistic, role-player scenarios at the end of the day.

These scenarios focus on assessing the student’s ability to make proper legal and tactical decisions in real time, and are designed to work for students of all skill levels and physical abilities. Since this type of training is usually reserved for law enforcement and military personnel, students of Defensive Handgun 2 will be far ahead of the curve--as compared to other gun owners--upon completion of this course.

Competition Fundamentals

Competition Fundamentals 2.0 is a comprehensive 7 hours course designed to prepare shooters of varying levels of skill and experience for successful entry into the sport of competitive shooting. Competition Fundamentals 2.0 begins with a ½ day group session consisting of 2 hours of classroom instruction followed by a live fire on-the-range competitive shooting experience. After completing the initial 3-hour class, each student will individually schedule with the instructor for the two additional 2-hour private sessions tailored to the student’s specific abilities and goals.
To help tailor instruction to individual student needs, abilities, and goals, prior to the initial class session, each student will receive a Five ?????’s survey regarding their current firearm(s), practice schedule and types of practice activities, current skills levels and goals for participating in competitive shooting events. Based on individual responses, the curriculum will be personalized to take students from their current status to actual participation in a USPSA Pistol match and/ or a North Fla. 2Gun match. Prior to their initial session, students will receive a “What to Bring” list along with specific skill building drills to incorporate into their practice sessions to help prepare students for success and enjoyment in competitive shooting.


The initial 3-hour session will include examples and discussion of specialized equipment used in competitive shooting activities along with vendor URLs for ordering on-line. Competition Fundamentals 2.0 requires pre-payment for the full course at a cost of $350.00, a rate of $50 per hour per student for the full 7 hours of instruction. Following the initial 3-hour class, each student will individually schedule with the instructor for the two remaining 2-hour private sessions included in the cost of the course. If any student feels the need for additional training on any aspect of the course, additional 1-2 hour private sessions may be scheduled with the instructor at a rate of $60.00 for 1 hour or $50.00 per hour for a 2-hour private session. These rates do not qualify for additional discounts for Elite Members.

Also, if it happens that there is a USPSA pistol or North Florida 2Gun match on a Sunday before students begin formal instruction, students be encouraged to attend all or part of that match to see what competition looks like from a shooter’s perspective. Usually, the instructor will be shooting that match and will communicate with registered students throughout the match providing explanation about topics such as: stage design, specific skill challenges, stage planning, scoring, etc. This optional opportunity will be in addition to formal instructional sessions and will be without additional charge to students. This optional activity will also be available to currently enrolled students following the initial class session and to ‘graduates’ who have completed all 7 hours of instruction.

*Competition Fundamentals 2.0 is a updated version of the original course traditionally taught in a one-day, 7 hour format.

Principles Of Justified Force

We are thrilled to announce we have discovered that a member at Shoot GTR, Steven M. Harris, Attorney-at-Law, is a subject matter expert and prolific author on justified use of force and Florida law.

Steve is the creator of the CAN-MAY-SHOULD-MUST use of force paradigm on the website Modern Service Weapons, where he has authored more than 70 posts. He also writes regularly on related topics for lawyers and judges in the local Bar newsletter. Steve has been practicing law for more than 40 years and now consults and co-counsels throughout Florida with other attorneys in use of force cases. Steve has represented federal agents and state and local LEOs in duty related disciplinary and use of force matters for more than 25 years.

Steve has spent the last decade amassing a collection of original lecture material to explain and clarify Florida “self-defense” law, and to dispel common misconceptions, including those related to "Stand Your Ground." He has generously offered to put on a comprehensive seminar at Shoot GTR for members and interested others in a half-day (5 hour) classroom format. This seminar will be limited to 16 participants, so register early. Extensive written materials will be provided to complement his presentation and for future reference.

Program: Florida law (statutes, cases, jury instructions, practical realities) on threatening/using deadly and non-deadly force in defense of self and others, property, and home protection. This is not a lecture on Chapter 790 statutes on concealed carry and licensing, but program does include essential coverage of firearm display and discharge statutes. A recommended reading list will be provided in advance of the class for online study. Comprehensive material will be distributed during the class. Several threatening/using force scenarios (adapted from actual incidents) will be analyzed. Target Audience: Individuals who lawfully carry a concealed firearm in public and those who keep a firearm in their residence for home protection. Class size limited to 16.

Lecturer: Steven M. Harris, Attorney-at-Law. Member: Florida Bar (1979). Steve’s practice is now almost exclusively representing federal and state law enforcement personnel in disciplinary matters and law enforcement personnel and the nonsworn in cases where justified force is the defense. He is available to assist lead counsel in trials and appeals. Steve has written extensively in the program area, including more than 20 articles in the Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar newsletter (Forum 8), and more than 70 posted articles on Modern Service Weapons, a well-regarded internet site. Steve has (since 1973) also authored or co-authored many articles in numerous law and accounting publications in areas of federal law, and is a coauthor of a two volume legal treatise which has been cited by the United States Supreme Court and other federal courts.
