Supplementing their training curriculum are available firearms and accessories, and onsite gun-altering upgrades.
In Western parlance, Goldiggers & Gunslingers is a veritable bonanza. Though Florida may be its home, this hub for fine jewelry and rugged Western wear clearly draws its inspiration from the frontier. Display cases sparkle with jewelry collections from makers such as Dabakarov and Odelia, behind which jewelers stand ready to perform repair and restoration services. The twinkly charms pair well with its line of bold cowboy garbs, such as rhinestone-bedazzled Nocona Belts and flashy Miss Me jeans. Of course, no outfit would be complete without a pair of flashy leather boots to trudge through the grizzled badlands or kick tumbleweeds out of the line dance. To that end, they carry men's and women's boots from a handful of manufacturers, including Ariat, Dan Post, and Stetson.
After the lecture-based portion of a class, Real Combative Solutions' instructors and students travel to local ranges for live-fire practice.
Students may rent firearms at the range or use their own.

At Accurate Edge, LLC, state-licensed security guard and NRA senior training counselor
Thomas Eichling shares his more than 20 years of training experience, including his expertise as both an NRA Senior Training Counselor and a retired Navy marksmanship specialist. He imparts this wealth of knowledge to students in NRA courses such as the FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation, which can be taken as a standalone class or used to satisfy the training component for a concealed-weapon application. In addition to working with adults, Thomas also works with youths with parental consent. He can also bring the training facility to clients, hitching up to his trailer-mounted live-fire range and driving it around Jacksonville.
When a former law-enforcement officer and a former Navy serviceman formed Second Amendment Outfitters in 2009, they aimed to cover all the bases their customers needed, including a firearms training center, retail store, and indoor shooting range in the plans. Once inside the climate-controlled shooting range, targets hanging from automated carriers challenge pistol- and rifle-brandishers to test their shots at six 23-yard-deep shooting lanes. Expert instructors assist inexperienced gunners in mastering pistol and rifle fundamentals during classes, and advanced trigger fingers can acquire name-brand firearms from the facility’s onsite or online shop. Should firearms require repairs or a new Bang! flag, a local gunsmith stops by twice a week to make adjustments and augmentations.
