Franklin Clayton Boyer II, founder, fired his first gun at the age of 11 when on a day-camping trip in the Angles National Forest. Inspired by the sport, he spent the next several decades practicing and teaching others. Eventually, he decided to open his own training facility and, after becoming licensed and certified, set up Wetmore Shooting Sports' training academy. Today, Franklin oversees DPS-certified and NRA-accredited instructors who teach classes on specific types of firearms and maintains a Federal Firearms License shop outfitted with more than 4,000 guns and 8,000 models of gear and accessories. Boyer's wife, Kandis, serves as a board member and runs the day-to-day business operations.
