Force IMI is a new training group that’s occupied the Hendry Correctional Facility in Immokalee, Florida. On Friday, August 28th and Saturday, August 29th the Force Center will be hosting an open house. The 28th will be dedicated solely to law enforcement and the 29th will be a true open house for any group who wishes to tour the facility. RSVPs are necessary and ensure they keep a spot open and have your free lunch waiting.
I live in a state of constant jealously at places with lots of firearms training opportunities. The midwest seems to have it all, from the Alliance Police Training Center to classes with Gorillafritz. Between plane tickets, hotel stays, ammo, and then the class cost and time off work, traveling for firearms training can be an expensive proposition. For those of us stuck in the southeastern United States, we now have a new choice in firearms training through the Force Center.
The Open House will include a tour of their massive 1,200-acre facility. The facility encompasses facilities for cell extradition, a shoot house, a 360-degree range, a one-mile rifle range, and much more. You’ll see live demonstrations including explosive breaching and even get a free lunch.
From Force Center
“Our doors are open to any and all customers who need an all-inclusive, first class training facility in South Florida.” said John Szkolnik, CFO of FORCE CENTER. “We are here to not only provide the best in class facility but one that breeds a strong community of like-minded individuals who care about training and wish to sharpen their skills across the board.”
The FORCE CENTER is located in a remote area in Immokalee, Florida, just 40 minutes east of Naples, Florida. Force Center encompasses 1200 acres of secured land and includes multi-operational training venues, furnished scenario buildings, an off-road tactical driving range, 360 firing range, a 1-mile precision rifle range with a 4 story sniper tower, FAA certified unrestricted airspace 3721(Class G), a 3,500ft runway, and multiple landing zones for helicopters.
The center (on Instagram at @forcecenterusa) is designed to serve Military, Fire/EMS first responder, K9, Law Enforcement, and civilians in all their training needs. The Center offers unique training facilities that can train your team for reality-based active shooter scenarios, prison riots, IED overviews, explosives training, and first aid. Additionally, Force Center can provide tactical flight training services in conjunction with Airborne Tactical Training.
FORCE CENTER also offers on-site housing accommodations consisting of a five-acre housing village with six duplexes and a larger open barracks area capable of sleeping up to 50+ personnel. Each Duplex has 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, full kitchens, living rooms, and covered parking for one vehicle.
They do have plenty of classes for armed citizens. Lots of such classes — and they are a member of the Tactical Buyers Club.
