Todd Lockburner, Co-Owner and General Manager | Magnum Shooting Center
Magnum Shooting Center, founded in 2013, is a multifaceted firearms retail business that features state-of-the-art shooting lanes and a 4,000 square foot retail shop that carries firearms, ammunition, sound suppressors, night vision equipment, and body armor, among other products. Additionally, the company has a training facility, full-service gunsmithing shop, and more.
New cloud-based technology to streamline firearms compliance
Magnum Shooting Center has been updating their range to the most modern technology in firearm lane features, lighting and environmental control, they also wanted to implement modern software technology for the most crucial facet of the business—firearms compliance. “We had been looking for new firearms compliance and management software, and we were thrilled to discover that the new Epicor FFL Compliance Manager software would easily integrate with our current Epicor system,” said Todd Lockburner, co-owner and general manager of Magnum Shooting Center.
“We didn’t want a point of sale system that we would outgrow in 10 to 12 months. We needed something that would grow with us, or that we could grow into. We also wanted to connect our point of sale system to our receiving of merchandise, our FFL compliance and back office operations—streamlining all sides of the business,” said Lockburner.
A solution that helps protect business
The Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application was created in collaboration with the firearm industry’s trusted compliance and operations experts at Orchid Advisors. While the cloudbased application is an entirely self-contained solution, it is now seamlessly integrated with the Eagle N Series system. The combination of the two solutions gives firearm dealers a comprehensive end-to-end solution that can protect and optimize every part of their businesses.
Magnum Shooting Center now operates its 33,000 square foot business with integrated Epicor technology. “The integrated solution was a no-brainer for us. As a business that sells nearly 100 firearms on a busy day, the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application, with built-in internal controls, is an extra safety net for us to help make sure all the federally required compliance information for selling a firearm is completed correctly.
