For Sale

Boondocks is for sale.  The popular firearms training facility posted the following message on Facebook last week: 



Boondocks Firearms Training Academy is for sale! We are looking for a buyer(s) that can help it expand and grow it into the finest firearms training in the country!
Mark and I wanted to post our intentions with the sale of Boondocks Firearms Training Academy. Putting Boondocks on the market has been a tough decision. We have been fortunate enough to build, what many would call the Finest Facility in the Southeast.
With over 300 acres, a 6-acre lake and other amenities, there is so much potential for growth.
This is the VERY reason we are searching for new owners that can take the Boondocks to the next level. We would love nothing more than for the Boondocks to expand to fulfill our original vision. A destination for families from all over the country, with cabins, campsites and RV spots around the lake, paved roads, sporting clay & skeet ranges, etc.
The past 5 years has been an amazing journey and we have met so many wonderful people. We take pride in the fact we have been a small part of helping thousands of people become better prepared to protect themselves and their families.
While this search for new owners is underway, it will be BUSINESS AS USUAL and we hope to see you in the classroom, taking advantage of the alumni ranges and joining us for our monthly IDPA matches.
Inquiries can be directed to Tom Smith Land and Homes – 601-898-2772.

Keep Training & Carry On!
Our Best,
Kim and Mark

JJ hopes Boondocks finds a worthy buyer.  It is an outstanding training facility and it would be a shame to see it close.     Boondocks opened four years ago.  Check out a post reporting the opening.  The post includes a video featuring the the late Cliff Cargill.  Good luck to Mark and Kim.

Great facility, I hope the new owner is able to fully realize the potential of the site.

Beautiful facility!

Yeah right, these guys are running while they can. The world is turning against gun ownership and these guys are seeing it firsthand.

With the blood of so many innocents spilled, it really isn't the best time to be in the business of worshipping weapons of mayhem and murder. Time to find healthier hobbies people.

The first thing I would ask for is a copy of their current Financial Statement. That's the first question you want to ask regardless of what the realtor is going to tell you. Bottom line is "will I be able to pay my note?"

7:46 has obviously mastered...the obvious. And yes, everyone is turning against gun ownership, even the criminals who I hear are willingly turning in their illegally possessed weapons.

Anonymous said...

8:09 - really? How many criminals have you been talking to? ZERO. Oh, that's right, your "heard". Try to add to the conversation for a change.

Cynical Sam said...

@8:09 AM - Exactly. Ever since murder and aggravated assault were made felonies, the criminals have been turning in their guns at a rapid pace. Jackson hasn't seen a violent crime in at least 2-3 hours.

Because of the current awareness of all criminal statutes, Americans have stopped committing all crimes because they are against the law.

Who knew that crimes would stop once there were laws prohibiting said crimes?

Anonymous said...

9:08, no kidding - I suppose what we need is an awareness campaign run by the mayor's wife to tell all these hood rats that drugs, killing, and illegally possessing weapons is illegal - that'll show 'em!

I think maybe all these folks just don't understand the law ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@idiot Sam, it’s amazing that these criminals have gotten so good at manufacturing weapons and ammunition. How else could they get their hands on them? Obviously those legally allowed to own firearms are the only ones who buy the hundreds of millions of guns flowing in our streets and they would make sure to properly lock them up and not sell to criminals. It just doesn’t make sense how the criminals are able to manufacture these high quality guns. It’s almost like the downside of having hundreds of millions of guns is that it allows bad guys to murder people? Who would have ever thought that?

There are many more people looking to purchase and learn how to use their firearms. This place will hopefully be sold and continue on with the training and range shooting.

I'm shopping for my third firearm. Jackson and vicinity is getting crazier every day. Damn shooting on Ridgewood Road just down the street from Jackson Academy.

8:09- must suck to be so misunderstood.

At least some of us get it.

People are fed up all right, gun purchases have spiked again just look at the ATF background checks form being run. And before the spike sales have remained steady..
Boondocks was a training facility 1st, that also sold some handguns.
7;36,8;09 and sam are idiots.. And don't know anything about gun enthusiasts that are law abiding citizens.. Criminals turning in guns?!? LMAO that is so stupid it's funny...

The world is NOT turning against gun ownership, and the sky is NOT falling. The anti-gun zealots have been out there for a long time. Like most things, those that oppose something are usually the most vocal. Take a deep breath.

If you don't already have a few AR15s put up you better go get you a few. Trump's going to sign whatever the democrats put in front of him to fight the trade war with China.

Interest in gun ownership is very high.

This is several hundred beautiful acres of land and they did a great job developing it into something special.

Articles like this bring out the worst of the posters on this blog.

Flee the land....by any means necessary!

If it's so great why are theey selling? I'll tell you why, because no bank wants a thing to do with them. As for the majority of people are concerned they are pass the bullying of the gun rights folks. Whoever doesn't support reasonable gun laws will pay for it at the polls even the president recognizes this.

Anonymous said...

Maybe they just want to retire and cash out, and is it really anyone's business why they're selling?

Anonymous said...

Sure, if you want to get a good deal on the place. Always pays to know why someone is selling.

8:09 was being sarcastic, people. Jeeze, reading comprehension is at an all-time low.

Firearm training on steroids is another stupid American construct. Only a jackass with more money than sense has to make a vacation out of routine marksmanship. Just another place to get shot and killed by some deranged jackass.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, they are picking up potential shooters now and the people who trained them.

Anonymous said...

Wait, they got steroids too? I'm sure the highway patrol would be very interested!

9:42, double ditto's. Great place, have taken almost every class including first aid/CPR. Anyone who thinks their Right to CARRY or Enhanced carry class prepared them to concealed carry is a uniformed and overconfident. Sadly most of the state falls into that group.

4:52 - "deranged" does that mean a person who doesn't have access to a fine range like Boondocks?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
