About the Owners

Mark & Kim Condon

Owner / Founder of Boondocks FTA™

I am a husband, a father, a papaw, a physician, and a certified NRA instructor. More importantly, I am a regular guy who is passionate about defensive firearms training. My background in firearms comes from 20+ years of competition shooting, firearms management, and extensive formal defensive training. I also translate experiences from my professional career into my defensive training curriculum. I have received multiple disciplines of training from elite facilities including Gunsite Academy - Arizona, Shootrite Academy - Alabama, Tactical Response- Tennessee, Way of the Gun- Alabama, RangeMaster-Tennessee as well as certifications from the NRA.

My goal at the BFTA™ is to bring a level of realism to gun training. I am passionate about defensive firearms training and hope to provide an all-inclusive facility where I can share this passion with you.

My mission is to take my knowledge and skills and make a difference... one class at a time!
