Investment / Ownership Opportunity

We’re building a second tactical indoor gun range. Investment/ownership opportunity. If interested, contact us at (904) 276-9710.


Franklin and I have been shooting partners for almost two years. I have attended several of his Concealed Weapons Courses and have assisted him on one. When my wife and son decided to get their concealed weapons license, it was Franklin that I suggested they take the course from. Franklin’s course is extremely thorough and teaches what all new shooters should know.

Describing Franklin; Friendly, honest and knowledgeable are but a few of the adjectives that come to mind when describing Franklin Dickinson. Although I have known Franklin for less than two years, I consider him one of the most responsible and respectable people I know. His word is his bond. He keeps his appointments or will inform you of any delays. He will not intentionally deceive. He is straight-forward and fair, almost to a fault. He has a positive outlook on life and a passion for his business. He is compassionate and respectful of others. Franklin is very knowledgeable and selflessly shares this knowledge with others. Franklin abides by his faith and treats everyone, regardless of race, creed or color, with respect. Franklin has something scarce in this day and age called integrity. I am proud to call Franklin a friend.

Opposition Based Clinic Outline


“Bridging the gap between Range & Reality


BASICS will be providing a 4 hour Opposition Based clinic utilizing the UTM system.  Aside from our various live fire classes offered, members & guests can now expand their training portfolio.

Time to put your skills up against a live opponent.  This class is a Force on Force clinic that will test your ability to employ a firearm in defensive situations.  More important than the exercises themselves, will be the after action briefs.  Shooter students will be held accountable for shot placement and will need to articulate the “why” in every decision.  The main catalyst to Force on Force training is the “Pain Penalty” which gives you immediate feedback and creates a different kind of stress inoculation.  This is NOT a class on “How to be a Tuffy Gunfighter 101”.        

REMINDER:  This class is run from a conceal carry posture ONLY !  Wear clothing appropriate for the training.

Some of the topic covered are:

– Authorized Use of Deadly Force

– Covert vs. Conceal carry

– Increased Muzzle Discipline

– Assessing your Environment

– Proper Target Acquisition & Discrimination

– Accountability of shot placement

– Avoid or Engage : Why get into the fight you could have avoided?

Provided to Shooter Students:

– Personal Protective Gear: Mask, Gloves, Neck Covering

– UTM converted firearms, UTM Ammo & Magazines

– Holster: You will have a pick of either Inside or Outside the waistband.

Students should bring the following:

– Hat w/Brim or skull cap ( worn with mask during Force on Force exercises )

– Minimum 2 layers of long sleeves / pants w/belt loops & belt / Closed toe shoes
