You might think that Front Sight offers self defense and firearms training. What
we really offer—and the reason why thousands of private citizens, law
enforcement officers and military personnel travel across the country to train
with us—is the Comfort of Skills at Arms.
What I mean by that is we offer you the peace of mind, the comfort, of knowing
that after spending a weekend with us that you leave with the skills and ability
to protect yourself and your loved ones no matter what happens.
But I would never ask you to simply take my word on it. To see a well known
Hollywood celebrity tell you what the Comfort of Skill at Arms and
Front Sight means to him after his Front Sight Experience… click:
and then return to learn about the Hierarchy of Comfort below:
Hierarchy of Comfort.
How Comfortable do You Want to Be?
There is a Hierarchy of Comfort based on your ability and weapon
For example, completing an Empty Hand Defense Course at Front
Sight will give you the comfort of knowing you have the ability to break
contact with an average size adversary attempting to injure or kill you with
his bare hands.
Would you feel comfortable with your skills if your adversary
were 6 feet 5 inches tall, weighed 280lbs and was in great physical condition?
Would you feel comfortable if there were multiple adversaries? Would you
feel comfortable if your spouse or children were also being attacked?
Without a weapon and the skill to use it effectively under the stress
of a lethal encounter, your answer is likely “no.”
Well, if we put a knife in your hand and teach you how to use it to defend
yourself in Front Sight’s Edged Weapons Course, you begin to
feel a bit more comfortable in dealing with a large single adversary, or maybe
even multiple, unarmed adversaries, but that is where your comfort ends if your
attacker is armed with a gun!
So in all practical reality, your Comfort of Skill at Arms really starts
with your ability to handle a defensive handgun! The good news is
that after a Four Day Defensive Handgun Course at Front Sight you will have the
mindset, gun handling, and marksmanship to handle multiple, armed adversaries
at conversational distances. If needed, you will be able to present
your handgun from a concealed holster and deliver your first shot to the center
of your target 5 meters away within 1.5 seconds! Such skill
gives you great comfort because you know you have the ability within
seconds to defend yourself and loved ones.
A shotgun in your trained hands will provide you with even greater comfort—especially
in low light conditions—and will generally extend your ability to control
your environment against hostilities out to about 35 yards. The 12 gauge
shotgun, when using buck shot has much greater stopping power than the handgun
and the pattern assists (not as much as the average person thinks…) in
making much faster hits on your target. After a Two Day Shotgun Course at Front
Sight you will gain the certainty to operate a shotgun with authority!
A rifle, in calibers of .223 or greater in the hands of a practical rifleman
is a tool that gives you the ability to control your environment out to
distances that you can see with your naked eye. A practical
rifleman is one who can score first round center hits, on targets appropriate
to his weapon, at unknown distances, from improvised field positions, against
the clock. After completing a Four Day Practical Rifle Course at Front Sight, you will be
a practical rifleman!
A precision rifle with a high power optical sight gives you the comfort of
knowing you command the terrain out to distances well beyond what the
unassisted human eye can see. A Precision Rifle Course at Front
Sight will make first round center hits at 600 yards so common as to bore you.
Depending on the caliber and inherent consistency of your rifle and ammunition
selection, you can control your environment from 1200 to 2400 yards away!
So the question really is, “How comfortable do you really want to be?”
Whatever your answer, Front Sight can provide you with the Comfort of Skill
at Arms you desire. I am sure of it. In fact, Front Sight
will more than satisfy your expectations or I will pay for your training. You
have my personal guarantee.
Watch for Message # 2 from me in a couple of days where I will give you a
Little Known and Rarely Talked About (outside of a Front Sight course) Secret
Training Tip that will make your precision handgun shots
much more accurate.
