Tom Child, Executive
Dear Front Sight Resort,

We finally got the CCP law changed in MN to a shall issue

May 28th I applied for a permit and found out that Front
Sight was not yet an approved provided by the Minnesota
Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Over the last few months, I have taken the 4 Day Defensive
Handgun and the Two Day Advanced Tactical Handgun courses at
Front Sight. These courses were not yet recognized for my
permit requirements.

But of course, at a 5 hour, "skim over the subject and run
them through course," at our local gun range, I was approved.

Interestingly enough when I turned in my 5 hour course
certificate, the Deputy Sheriff said to me "It was to bad you
wasted over $2,000.00 going to Nevada for courses that did
not count." My reply was "The courses were more than worth
while. I am not only qualified to carry a weapon - I am
COMPETENT to carry a weapon. From what I have been told by
police officers who have heard about the level of my
training, I am more competent to carry a weapon than most
peace officers."

As it turned out I scored 99.6% (249 out of 250 points) on my
shooting proficiency test which is the highest score out of
600 applicants to date at this shooting range.

All thanks to my Front Sight training!

Ken Fish, Executive
Dear Front Sight Resort,

I'm writing to tell you, "It's all your fault."

This weekend, Anastasia (my 7 year old daughter) and I went
boar hunting in Mendocino County, along with my cousin and
his son.

On the first night of the hunt, we got on a good group of
hogs, and I stalked to within about 40 yards of them.

I selected one that I wanted, a reddish one with a clearly
defined razorback, and when I fired it dropped to the shot.
No surprise there, because it was a pretty short shot and I
had a decent rest and I was shooting a .338.

After I finished my after action drills (such as I could,
since the pig dropped in tall grass) and put the safety back
on my rifle, I turned and yelled to my cousin who was about
40 yards behind me, "It's a razorback!" As I did, he yelled
back, "He's up and he's running!"

I then spun completely around, unsafetied, acquired the
target, verified that it was a red razorback of exactly the
same size as the hog I had just fired at and then pressed the
trigger. I rolled it over on a dead run with a left to right
shot at about 70 yards just before it made the brush line. I
then did a tactical reload while running up on my hog. I had
hit it right through the lungs!

When I got near my hog, I was glad Front Sight had stressed
tactical reloads and that my training was playing out. The
rest of the group of hogs was just inside the brush, oinking
and snorting, making false charges, and obviously none too
happy. As it turned out, I didn't get charged, but I was
awfully happy that I had topped off my rifle's ammo stack
(and that I was carrying a sidearm that I KNEW how to use in
close quarters from the handgun classes I had taken at Front

As I approached the hog, however, I was confused. I knew the
first shot had been true, and I had seen the animal drop like
a rock despite its having turned slightly just as the shot
went off. I began doubting myself. Maybe I hadn't hit it
squarely, and that's why it got up and ran? At the same time,
I was elated because prior to attending Front Sight's Hunter
Rifle Course I had never been able to make running shots, and
this one was perfect!

However, when I finally looked at my hog closely, it only had
ONE bullet hole in it. Now I really had some doubts! Did I
completely miss with the first shot? Did I merely graze the
big hog and knock it down momentarily?

About this time, my cousin walked up and we tried to figure
out how I could have possibly missed with the first shot. So,
doing what hunters should always do, we tracked that first
shot shot. Sure enough, there was the first pig lying there
dead! I had two hogs down (and fortunately, I had two tags in
my pocket). This was an honest mistake because the two
animals were virtually identical in color, build, and weight
(within 5 pounds), and the grass was so tall that I couldn't
see the first pig on the ground when the second one ran.

What was AMAZING was that I had been able to make that second
shot starting out with my back to the hog when my cousin
shouted out that it was running. His question to me was,
"Where on earth did you learn to shoot like THAT?!" Of
course, you know what I told him. Now he wants to come to
Front Sight, so I gave him a certificate which he plans to
use to take the 4 day rifle course.

I attribute this ability to shoot rapidly, smoothly, and
accurately entirely to the rifle training I have received
this year.

So, no laws were broken, no safety rules were breached, the
freezer is now full of meat!

All I can say is, "It's all your fault!"

I thought you'd enjoy this story of Front Sight's training
being put to use in the field.

All the best,
Ken Fish

Gary Aglietti, Executive

Dear Front Sight Resort,

I am contacting you to reiterate my thanks for a superb
program. On the June 13-14 weekend my 12 year old son and my
14 year old daughter (they turn 13 and 15 July 6th and 1st)
attended the four day defensive handgun course.

It was my 11th handgun course and the 1st for the children.

Before the weekend I had several concerns. My two big ones
were: Would the children stay focused for the four days? How
would they do in heat of June? I also wondered how the staff
and the other students would treat them as they joined into a
predominantly adult activity?

All of these concerns were ill founded. Both the students and
the staff treated them very well. They may have been given
the benefit of the doubt at first, but I believe the kids
earned that continued respect.

The staff 's constant encouragement and assistance was a huge
contributing factor in children's success.

During the drive home Monday night, the kids watched a movie
in the back seat. The movie was The Recruit. A CIA action
adventure movie. During the finale there was a gun fight and
a search. The following are the comments that my daughter
yelled at the screen:

"He's not slicing the pie...Look at that."
"He's leaving cover for NO cover."
"Come to the ready!"
"Get your finger off of the trigger!"
"Emergency reload you fool!"

Both kids recognized the tactical errors the actors were
making in the movie.

Very cool!

I hope to get them both into more handgun training soon.
First they want to return for Empty Handed Defense. My wife
hasn't wanted to attend any courses until you developed the
Rope, Rappel, and Climb course. I'm hoping to get us ALL back
in September.

The vision that Front Sight had to expand the programs, will
greatly help my family and any other family that attends to
become safer and enjoy life more.

Thank you,
Gary Aglietti

Jim Johnson, CPA/Attorney
First class people and a first class course. My family changed our California vacation plans to enable me to spend the day at Front Sight. I was not disappointed. Lots of practical tips I've not received elsewhere.
H. Shonnard, President, Pacific Yacht Towers
There are few times in life where a person's expectations are met; no less surpassed. Front Sight's course and personnel have done that! Thank you for a great experience!
Jim Conway, Conway Engineering
The defensive handgun course is an eye-opener that was jammed packed with real world information. Front Sight is not a boot camp with drill instructors, but rather a friendly and highly competent learning environment. I cannot imagine a better way to learn how and when to use firearms for your personal defense. I have had a concealed weapon permit for almost 15 years. I learned more in this two day program than in the previous 15 years.
Ken Fish, Fortune 500 Executive
You have to see it and hear Dr. Piazza's vision to appreciate it fully. However, the submachine gun course is free, really absolutely free. It is fun. It is safe. It is educational even if you already know a lot about firearms. It is unique. Where else will you ever get a chance to shoot a submachine gun? GO!
Wayne Repich, CEO/Co-Founder, Vanguard Acceptance Corporation
Front Sight is excellent! Incredible! There is an old saying, 'Those who can't do, teach.' That old saying does not apply at Front Sight at all. Every instructor at Front Sight is an expert marksman and tactician. And, they are fantastic educators.
Todd Baker, Executive
Front Sight is the best firearms training I have ever received. The instructors know how to train students. All were knowledgeable, skilled, friendly, and taught me how to be proficient with a firearm.
Kurt Horvat, VP
Front Sight was the most worthwhile firearms training I have ever participated in. Even better than the night shooting handgun course I once attended that was taught by Pennsylvania State Trooper Instructors.
Juliana Bernabe, CFO
As a woman student I was concerned whether I could really do the class. I'm glad I attended because I learned so much more in two days than I had in the last year of shooting. I now have confidence to draw my gun, shoot, and even clear any malfunctions in 2-3 seconds. I can do it every single time.

You really need to experience this course first hand to appreciate the high caliber instruction and extensive shooting drills it contains. The range masters and assistants are exceptionally talented and highly qualified for their roles. They were respectful, informative and very knowledgeable. The night shoot was very interesting and I enjoyed the competition shooting. I can't wait to come back.
Nathanael Chang, Engineer
I just came home from the Four Day Defensive Handgun training, and in short, I am blown away by everything. The instruction was top notch, the facilities were great, the staff was professional and personable, the lectures opened my eye, the drills, simulations, steel shoot, hostage targets... all really helped.

This course is rational and reality based, and touches on moral, ethical, legal, tactical and emotional issues. It is not a bunch of gun nuts just learning to shoot better, but the course emphasizes how to avoid gun fights through situational awareness and understanding that you only use the gun when you ...

Dr. Edward M Vermette, US Air Force (Retired)
The Front Sight Four Day Defensive Handgun course has absolutely changed my attitude towards the use of my handgun, in general.

Graham Hambleton, Assistant Chief Engineer
I have just arrived back at work after getting the opportunity to experience Front Sight's 2-Day Defensive Handgun Training. All I can say is, "Wow!" I came in to the experience a little apprehensive and slightly audacious. I was hoping it would be more than a bunch of hicks shooting rusted-out cars in the Nevada desert. I was so-very-wrong in even letting that thought cross my mind.

Literally, from the gate, the staff at the facility impressed me with their professionalism, knowledge, and talent. While being stern in their guidance, they could put me at ease on the ... (click for more)
Dick Eastley, Software Product Engineer
Front Sight will get you better each day; you'll become safe, competent, and ready to defend yourself and family. I find it great for 15 to 25-year-olds, to teach them situational awareness, which is very maturing. I have started a program to get my nephews and nieces through the 4-Day Defensive Handgun class. Every young woman will be better off attending the course prior to heading off to college. 'Even if they don't plan to have a firearm."
Gary Eastley
Anybody who handles a gun without attending a safety course first is an accident waiting to happen. I recommend that you sign up for a course at Front Sight.

I also appreciated the time taken to explain about the anatomy of a gun - I know absolutely nothing about guns before this class. I also felt my confidence bud. I may be consciously incompetent but I feel safer when I handle ... (click for more)

No where else will you receive such in depth instruction on real life scenarios or the real life consequences of carrying or firing a weapon.

This has been absolutely eye opening. I have had guns in my family all my life and I have, now, been totally educated. I have improved my shooting skills by leaps and bounds in the last few days.

Mitch Gilbert, Retail Supervisor
I had been visiting the FS web site for several years. After further local and Internet inquiries, I attended a two day defensive hand gun course, where I received the most professional, patient and understanding instruction ever.

I've been in the Army for 11 years. If I had had this type of instruction before I would undoubtedly have qualified expert on the M-16. I can't believe that in 4 days of training I was able to deliver two rounds from the field ready to the thoracic cavity of a target in 1.2 seconds. I you told me I would be able to do that before I took this course, I would have told you that you were crazy.

I have learned more about handgun and shotgun and sub-machine gun safety and proficiency during the 2 and 4 day instructional courses than can be described without actually taking the courses!!! The professional quality of the instructors and their focused/safety oriented demeanor can only be described as the best, bar none.

It couldn't be soon enough. Thanks again Front Sight!

Brandon Moore, Security
Great for the Beginner as well as the guy who thinks he has it all down pat.
Deborah Johnson, Self-Employed

James Fanning, Retired Engineer
Learn the skills to protect yourself and family, and help preserve the American way of life, as our founders meant it to be.
Having a defensive firearm without formal training is like planning a road trip without driving skills. Front Sight will provide the training to run a gun from 0-60 and beyond.
James E. Morse, DDS
It is intense, busy, and fast paced - no sleeping thru it. I would recommend the 2 day for someone with little experience with a handgun. The 4 day is better suited for those with more range time, but be prepared to unlearn some bad habits! There are a variety of handguns available (with all necessary equipment) for rental for the courses. Of course, you can take your own also.

I highly recommend Front Sight, as I would recommend everyone furthering their education with handguns. Would I take the course again? We are already planning on it, as well as for our ... (click for more)

I attended my first course at Front Sight in June 1994. I'd heard about Front Sight and it sounded like something I'd enjoy. During that first course I quickly came to appreciate the
professionalism and expertise of the instructors and staff at Front Sight.

After the first day I was hooked and purchased a membership. The next
month I brought my wife to Front Sight and after one day she too became
a member. Since then we have taken several courses and introduced our
friends and family to Front Sight. We love spending time and learning
together. Not only has Front Sight improved ... (click for more)
Kim Klein
When I came to Front Sight I was blown away at the level of professionalism, consistency and enthusiasm each and every instructor had.

John C. Roach, Police Detective
With 25 years in the LAPD and numerous tactical and survival schools attended with FBI and various other task force agencies, I did not believe that I could learn any new skills from Front Sight.

I was strongly encouraged by a co-worker of mine to get involved with Front Sight as it could save my life one day. I live alone in a high crime area in Northern California and feel
that knowing how to protect myself is so much better than wishing I knew
how and it's too late. To share a quote a friend told me: "I'd rather
be judged by 12 than carried by 6". I had more fun at Front Sight than
I did on my last vacation to Hawaii! I can hardly wait to go back for
the next class!

Donald R. Benfield, Fire Captain/Investigator
I work for a small city in Southern California as a Captain in the Fire Department and as an Arson Investigator. Recently I, along
with 6 other Firemen had to requalify with our firearms (Glock 22) with
our Police Department. As you can imagine there was lots of verbal
spears being thrown at us firefighters from all of the cops there shooting with us. During the training a friendly competition developed and the firefighters shot the pants off of the cops. Two of us are 1st Family Members and a couple others had attended a 4 day defensive hand
gun course ... (click for more)
Ronald Ramos, Jr., Security
By far the best training anyone could get. The staff is professional and courteous. They will take the time to make sure you understand the proper use of your tool (firearm). They answer any question you may have.
Shannon Long, Fireman/Paramedic
This class will save your life.
Mike Workman, Teacher
Our instructors were the best in working with all ages and abilities. This is a great course for anyone in need of protection but unable or unwilling to use a firearm.
Rob Oates, IT Analyst
Fantastic! Exactly as promised and then some. My words can barely do justice to what Front Sight offers. You have to see the facility and attend a class to fully appreciate its value.
Adamm Liley, Filmmaker
Perfect - come to Front Sight for a safer America.
Kandi Blick, Ballroom Dance Instructor
If you want to effectively learn to protect yourself and your loved ones - go to Front Sight! There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to say what a fantastic operation this is.
John L. Zumrick, Anesthesiology
Without a doubt the best organized, efficient, and safe courses I have ever attended producing exceptional educated students.
Brian Beal, Farmer
Front Sight delivered over and above what they advertised.
Greg Guillermo, Engineer
Front Sight delivers on everything they state in their advertising. All of the testimonials I've ever read about Front Sight are true!
Gary Taylor, Airline Pilot
Front Sight is the only place to train. Period!!!
Margo, Student
Wow! This training is by far the best I have ever had. It was easy to understand and fun! It was well worth my time and I will tell my friends about it.
Anastasia, Student
My teacher was funny and made the class fun. I learned that I can keep myself safe.
Donna Loomis, Cosmetologist
Front Sight training is the most positive learning experience I've had in my life.
Deborah Williams, Kindergarten Teacher
Front Sight is safe, thorough, and by the numbers. You'll walk away with skills to keep you alive.
Katherine Bohn, RN/Paramedic
The Front Sight instructors are great! They treat you with positive reinforcement constantly. I totally loved this course and it gave me great pride to be one of the students.
William Morrow, Software Engineer
Front Sight has been one of the few events in my life that I can definitely state, 'I am a different person because of this.' I have gone from being vaguely afraid of firearms to having a respect for them and also understanding what is required to use them responsibly with forethought of consequence. Front Sight will change your outlook on the gun control debate.
Eugene S. Corl, Demolition
Uniformity of instruction at Front Sight surpasses any other course I have ever taken. Front Sight offers the maximum amount of information that improves any skill level in the shortest amount of time.
Alex, Student
I think every kid deserves to be safe.
Gabriella, Student
I learned how to recognize bad people and what to do in case someone wants to hurt you. I can't wait to come back and learn more.
Haley, Student
You will love this place. There are the best instructors that have ever lived. I really like them. Thank you.
Dennis Wong, Dentist
Best practical training available for regular people.
Annette, Student
You will have a better chance of living!
Maria Powell, Mom
The class will help a person know how to prevent themselves from becoming a victim.
Dr. John J. Rusek, Propulsion Scientist
Front Sight gives one an exceptional view of the balance of the morals and ethics of deadly force with the practicality of shooting in a real environment. I would encourage all people who cherish freedom to take part in the opportunities at Front Sight.
David, Student
My instructors helped me through everything. I was scared and they helped me through it. I had a very good time and hope to see them soon.
Nancy Speer, Teacher
The Front Sight course was great fun. I learned the correct way to handle a gun, both for target shooting and when there is a need to use a gun in extreme circumstances. I now feel I could better handle a fight if necessary. Front Sight is a great confidence builder.
Katrina, Student
You feel safer...and it's so much fun.
Julie Aliconar, Commercial Title Officer
When Front Sight said they can guarantee improvement, I had to see it to believe it. The class made me realize how much I did not know about handling a firearm in a confrontational situation. I am so much better and much more confident now, after taking the class. Front Sight came through for me and they will come through for you.
Beth Fish, Homemaker
I learned skills that didn't require a tremendous amount of strength but learned how to leverage my body. Anyone can do this.
R. Lee Vaughn, Engineering Dept. Manager
Front Sight is very professionally presented. All students are treated with respect by all the instructors. There is ample time to ask questions. The staff is genuinely concerned with helping students. Your actions are observed and analyzed to aid in the learning process. Most importantly, the use of positive reinforcement as a teaching method is fantastic!
Dave Lesley, Self Employed
This course far exceeds any training I had in my law enforcement career of 20 years. This is a comprehensive, very safe, and responsible course of instruction for all types of handguns.
Scott Preston, Computer Network Engineer
Front Sight is the answer to the ignorance of firearms that is prevalent in our society. Front Sight is the greatest champion for the truth about guns, the Second Amendment, and self defense that we have today.
Wayne Higgins, Airline Pilot
If you are going to own a weapon, learn how to use it. You need to go to Front Sight.
Cathy Moran, Ski Instructor
I would encourage anyone to take this course, especially women, since we tend to be more vulnerable to criminals.
Lindsay Reese, Production Associate
You need to attend a course at Front Sight. Your life may depend on it. If you think you know how to shoot - you're in for a big surprise!
Andrew Lee, Law School Graduate Student
Front Sight's Defensive Handgun Course is by far the best firearms training course I have ever taken. The teaching staff is extremely impressive and the one-on-one time is incredible. The facility is first rate and the course has definitely convinced this skeptic.
Ron Walden, Machinist
After my course at Front Sight I feel 100 times more confident about handling my pistol should I need to use it in a life threatening situation.
Peter DeLeew, Retired
Training is a must in the reality of today's world. Few places offer the range of training that Front Sight does. Anyone who owns a gun and thinks they may need to use it should come here.
Terry Sullivan, Military Officer
I learned more about proper, safe, and precise handling of a handgun in four days than I have in twenty years in the military. Excellent course!
Nathan Finke, Tire Sales
The professionalism of all the instructors is world-class. I would recommend this institute to everyone who owns a firearm and everyone who does not.
Tom Clarke
If someone has any intention of owning a handgun, the Front Sight experience is infinitely important. You will learn not only gun handling, but also the implications of using that weapon.
Danglong Tran, Transportation Engineer
You need to learn how to use a gun, the proper way, the first time.
Hector Alcazar Jr., Law Enforcement
In the fall of 2002 I was awed by the speed and proficiency of my classmates who four days later were distinguished graduates (4 Day Defensive Handgun). I remember wondering how many years and classes it would take me to possibly ever be that fast and proficient. (answer) One year and three classes. In 2003 I took two 2 Day Defensive Handgun classes and in September I distinguished myself in the 4 Day. More than just an ego boost, you guys have given me tools and skills crucial to my workday. From one law enforcement professional to a school of professionals, ... (click for more)
Stephen E. Staley, Army Aviation
Great team building experience for the family and co-workers.
Ken Gillett, Real Estate Sales
My only experience with weapons training has been with Front Sight. I recently watched (at the request of the range manager) a local training course. I then realized how great Front Sight really is. The very low student to instructor ratio makes sure you get the training you paid for and no one gets left behind. I can't say enough about the quality and qualifications of the instructors. Front Sight is world-class and I'm proud to be a First Family Member.
Jamie Bell, Telecom Engineer
Now that I have the no-nonsense news about what it takes physically, mentally, and emotionally to be prepared to use a gun in self-defense (which includes avoiding the use of the gun in the first place), I will be going to Front Sight every year just to stay sharp. When I finished the 4-Day Defensive Handgun course, signing up for a First Family Membership was a no-brainer. It is an eye-opening and extremely rewarding program. I would strongly recommend it truly for anyone - any skill level, any side of the gun issue.
Jim Lefty USN (ret.), Software Engineer
I have been involved with firearms for over 35 years. I have been to numerous classes and training facilities, I even instruct new shooters. I figured that there wasn't anything more someone else could teach me that I already didn't know. A friend gave me a Blue Certificate almost two years ago to attend a course. I never went because I was skeptical of Front Sight. Earlier this year, my good friend passed away and as a tribute to him, some of his other friends and I went to Front Sight for the Four Day Practical Rifle Course. Suffice it to ... (click for more)
Howard Foss, Surveyor
I am currently attending the orange county sheriff's training academy at the level 3 position. During the range portion of the training the instructors were quite flabbergasted that I could clear a Type 3 malfunction in just under 4 seconds, from the ready. They were quite interested in my lightning speed to their command "on target". I just said, "Dry practice."
Bob Ingersoll, Private Investigator / Martial Arts Instructor
The two-day Defensive Handgun course I completed was better than any course I'd ever taken during my 18 years as a Police Officer. The instructor to student ratio was outstanding. I hope to attend more courses in the near future. Keep up the good work!!!
Joel A. Hendelman, Battalion Chief/Fairfax City Fire Dept.
Served as an Arson investigator for my Department for 5 years. I have attended a dozen gun safety courses and regional police academy. I have never, I repeat never, learned, performed and improved my knowledge and skills more efficiently while being at Front Sight. The instructors are top and the motivation and encouragement can not be matched anywhere. I am humbled by the exceptional work being accomplished at Front Sight. These guys are going to shift the popular vote regarding gun ownership within this country in the next decade!
Colleen Hillman, Mother
I think everyone should take Empty Hand Defense, Edged Weapons and Martial Arts at Front Sight. The instructors are patient, knowledgeable, funny and extremely professional. They took a group which included a grandmother, two moms, three children and an attorney and gently pushed them through what we thought was rigorous training that will be extremely useful. During the workday I am either on a college campus or working at a Federal installation which won't allow me to carry a handgun. With more training in this curriculum at Front Sight I know that I will always have four defensive weapons with me ... (click for more)
Nicky Eddy, Marketing Consultant and Mother
I finally took both of my boys (7 and 14 yrs old) to the Family Safe Forever Program; both were thrilled and enjoyed all the challenging adventures. They definitely will return for more !! See you soon at the range!
Michael Harrold, USMC/Intel
I went to Front Sight before joining the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps has an awesome shooting program, but I can't think of any better platform to build my shooting career on than Front Sight.
Shannon Downing, Registered Nurse
The men and women who work for Front Sight really love their jobs. They put time and effort into making your Front Sight experience memorable and useful.
Fawn Ferguson, Architectural Drafter
Everyone should learn how to use a gun, even if you don't have an interest in owning a gun or shooting. Guns are very prolific in society and people should know how they work and how to not be afraid of them.
Keith G. Burt, Deputy District Attorney
This is the best and most balanced handgun course I have participated in. It is something I recommend for almost everybody.
John Harrold, Police Inspector
The shotgun course at Front Sight just might be the finest choice to teach home defense skills. Who wouldn't invest four days to provide a real security base for their family?
Gary L. Minner, Painting Contractor
You have no idea what you're missing, or what you don't know, until you attend a class.
Alexander Johansen, Aviation Maintenance Tech
If you want to learn how to handle firearms to defend your life and the lives of your family members, this is the place to be.
Richard Roadell, System Process Engineer
An excellent means of learning - at all levels. I'm coming back over and over to build skills - and I get significantly better and more confident with every course.
Lyle Benjamin, Farmer
I brought my wife to Practical Rifle this week. She came in as a non-shooter and was taken from discouraged on the first day to very happy and successful on the fourth day. Her comment to me was "This was fun! Your AR-15 is now mine!" My hat is off to the Front Sight Rifle Instructors who made this possible. Thanks guys!!
Daniel C. Palmer, University Professor
This is a course that is an excellent value for the money, professionally done, and really helped me understand the capabilities of my rifle.
Brian Lloyd, Computer Network Architect
This is the most comprehensive and complete handgun training I have ever attended and I have attended several.
Nicky Eddy, Marketing Consultant and Mother
Ever since I was exposed to Front Sight's Practical Rifle course back in August 1997 by Dr. Piazza himself, I have been returning to gain more knowledge and skill. Not only to shoot better, but most importantly, to gain the understanding of self defense and personal safety. That is what all the courses at Front Sight are all about! There is no other place I would like to learn to shoot and understand to shoot safely than here with the most professional and highly qualified and most dedicated line of Instructors!
Peter M. Juknelis, Vice President of Maryland Law Enforcement Officers, Inc.
Dear Front Sight Resort,

Back in April, my entire family came to Front Sight for our
vacation. My parents, my two brothers, my sister-in-law, my
wife, my three children, and I had the greatest vacation we've
EVER had! My brother and his wife, who are First Family
members, gave us certificates as gifts.

I've had over seven years of law enforcement firearms training
through my job with the Maryland Division of Correction. I came
to Front Sight with the hopes of honing the shooting skills that
I already had. ... (click for more)
Steven Knopf, Welding Contractor
I believe it is impossible to complete a Front Sight training course and not leave a better weaponscraft person than when you arrived. Thanks for keeping your guarantee.
Rebekah, Student
Front Sight has the best classes and activities. That is because the instructors are so nice.
Ed Breiner, Nevada Peace Officer
From the beginner to the advanced, anyone can learn something here at Front Sight.
Alexandra, Student
Class taught me how to be safe. I would love to bring all my friends to the next class at Front Sight.
Margo, Student
The instructors are wonderful. Day 1 left me eager for Day 2. I will come back and take more classes for sure.
Brittany, Student
Tons of fun. I feel much safer.
Spencer, Student
I had a ton of fun on the ropes.
Michael, Student
The climbing was my favorite part.
Kaiser, Student
It's really, really fun!
Jordan, Student
You need to do it!
Daniel, Student
Front Sight helped me improve in my self defense skills, as well as ensure my confidence in my weapon. They train the body to work with the mind for a worst case scenario. I give it a 10.
John Stoneman, Computer Analyst
In order to learn to perform to a level that could save your life, Front Sight is the place to go. The instructors are great! They are competent, patient, and very proficient in their skills. I will send my daughter to Front Sight so I can be confident she will have more than a fighting chance to win.
George Cole, Federal Agent
I have trained with many top name private schools as well as several law enforcement training programs. Front Sight is the top of the top of the line.
Joshua Thaler, Software Engineering Manager
In two days I learned more about shooting than in the past five years. Front Sight's training course is the best money I've ever spent on shooting.
Deke Castleman, Travel Writer
Everything was first-class. Immense amount of training. Now I can practice safely; I know what to practice; and I will practice.
Douglas C. Scott, Buyer
Outstanding teacher to student ratio. Lecture was without question, equal or greater in value than the range time. The instructors demonstrated great skill which really made me try to reach for that level. Front Sight is the best school of its kind. You are taught that the last thing you ever want to do is shoot someone. You are also taught the best way to do so, when there is no other choice.
Jean Mauregard, Street Rod Builder
Even if you think you know all about the use of a defensive handgun - trust me, you don't! Take the defensive handgun course at Front Sight. You will realize how much you have not known. The skills you learn could save your life.
Craig M. Wilcox, Optician
If you want to learn to survive and win a lethal encounter, then Front Sight is the place to go! I cannot imagine a more professional environment or a more dedicated staff.
Alan Smith, Engineer
If you are already familiar with firearms, Front Sight provides world class training, no matter what your level of experience. If you are not at all familiar with firearms, and want to be, by all means go to Front Sight and learn it right the first time. If you are a loved one of mine and want to learn to defend and protect yourself with a gun, I don't want you to go anywhere else but Front Sight!
Dr. Floyd Minana, Chiropractor
Front Sight is among the best training I have had in any setting. Demanding and professional, yet done in a supportive atmosphere with good humor. I am very impressed with the quality of the instructors. Uniformly intelligent and articulate. Quite a group. Quite an organization. Bravo!
Carl Swan, Pilot
My instructors at Front Sight were possibly the most capable and caring team I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I hope to meet them all again.
William Brizzee, Dentist
After just my first handgun course, I no longer looked at the expensive, glitzy new guns as real defensive tools. What counts first and foremost is training. The actual tool a distant second.
Mike Petrashevich, Office Manager
It's true you just don't know how much you really don't know until you come to Front Sight.
Michael Stonehouse, Fleet Purchaser
I am definitely coming back again, and again, and again. I learned more in the two day handgun course than I have in 20 years of target shooting and practical shooting. You can't get better training at any price anywhere!
Les Jones, Inspector
After 30 years of shooting, I am now just beginning to shoot correctly thanks to Front Sight. I look forward to more classes in the future. The Front Sight instructors are the best!
David Kernan, Information Systems
Incredibly patient and sincere instructors. They really want to help and went the extra mile for all students. I have been shooting rifles for 25 years and I now know twice as much as I did when I walked into the class on the first morning.
Dennis Murphy, Banker
The level of professionalism and competence at Front Sight will surprise and delight you. It is truly an opportunity that must be experienced.
Mike Hrobuchak, Airline Pilot
As I have attended two other well known schools, I would have to say that Front Sight is the best firearms school I have attended.
Les Stickles, Police Lieutenant
It's great! Not just this course, but all courses offered are appealing to do as soon as possible to improve knowledge, skills and abilities with the best in the field.
Alan Smith, Engineer
Front Sight has the finest instructors and the finest curriculum of any firearms training I have ever taken.
Steve Campbell, Prison Training Supervisor, Rangemaster
I have attended numerous law enforcement firearms instructor courses. Front Sight exceeds all P.O.S.T. courses I have attended. I was truly impressed and humbled.
Ernest Peltz, Mechanic
I have learned so much and have so much more to learn. It is a shame the rest of the business world does not provide the same level of service I received at Front Sight this week.
Dennis Hankey, Investments
Front Sight provides comprehensive, encompassing training on important issues not normally given any consideration or addressed with any detail as this school does. Front Sight is the best school I have ever attended in firearms training.
Glenn Frank, Veterinarian
My third course and they keep getting better! I've handled sporting shotguns for 26 years, but learned more about shotguns and shotgun shooting in four days than all those years combined
Art Giddings, Stage Manager
Front Sight is the best place to get training. Front Sight is the school that sets the bar for all other training schools. Good luck to the other schools trying to get over it.
Edmund Gilmore, Retired Police Officer
By far, Front Sight is the best firearms training I have ever received. The staff is superb. Their patience is beyond measure. These men are real gentlemen and experts in their field. My hat is off to them.
Dennis Bower, Television Production
Front Sight is unequaled in its commitment to excellence. The professionals at Front Sight made us feel welcome, confident, and delivered a course that will make a difference in our lives. Thank you very much for creating a facility that helps us meet the challenges that life puts in our paths.
Al Corea, Fire Inspector
If you really want to learn how to handle a firearm, go to the best teacher you can find. Go to Front Sight if you want the best!
Phillip Vaughan, Warehouse Manager
This class improved my level of skill a thousand percent! I cannot thank everyone involved enough - especially Dr. Piazza. If you think you are proficient enough with your weapon of choice to protect yourself and your loved ones in a heated gun fight, you are wrong! Attend a class at Front Sight and you will become a believer as much as I am.
John Woo, MD
I had a strong appreciation for the instructors at Front Sight, but after taking this course and learning what they do, now I hold them in complete awe and admiration.
David Broberg, Farmer
The training cadre at Front Sight took a very competent target shooter and taught him the complexities of weapons handling that he never dreamed possible. There is much more to defensive shooting than just hitting a bullseye. The leadership, expertise, and patience exhibited by the instructional staff was exemplary.
John F. Moran, Captain, US Army
Suffice it to say that I have been to Gunsite, LFI, HK, and OPS and I always come back to Front Sight.
Edwin Lowrey, US Special Forces, Retired
If you have attended some of the 'old' schools you need to go to Front Sight. There are a lot of proficient shooters in the industry, but not all are professional instructors. Front Sight is the home of the professional instructors with the best facilities around.
Bill Garland, Firearms Instructor, Oregon Police Academy
Student comfort and safety are stressed in a positive, team environment. Great job! The training is as good or better than any I have encountered. Very impressed by the direct and friendly teaching style, and the lack of 'cute' or ego-driven sayings or techniques. Solid, sound information delivered by superior instructors!
Mallika Albert, Massage Therapist
I approached this training with an extreme anti-gun attitude that I've had my whole life (50 years). Front Sight's training definitely changed my attitude significantly. I acquired important skills to now share a new interest with my husband. Thank you Front Sight!
Tony Wise, Pawnbroker
I did not know how much I did not know about shooting a firearm until I attended Front Sight. I grew up with guns around my house and my father was a police officer and I attended firearm classes at my local range. After Front Sight's course, I realized how inferior and incompetent all of that previous training was. Thank you for helping me become a safe and responsible gun owner.
Bryon R. Benz, Captain, US Army
I thought I knew what I was doing. After attending the Four Day Handgun course I now know what I did not know and learned and improved a ton! Excellent instruction. The personnel and training techniques are top notch. I will go back for more training.
Lief Rutzebeck, Computer Analyst
The instructors at Front Sight were fabulous. Their patience throughout the two-day course was remarked on by several people I talked with. I personally learned more during this two-day course than during the last twenty years of shooting combined. It was a great experience.
Mike Manginill, Retired
Front Sight's instructors are not only knowledgeable, but seek to share their knowledge. I just took the Gunsite 250 course. After attending the free, one day submachine gun course I am more impressed with Front Sight staff's attentiveness to their students.
Mike Jones, Police Officer
Front Sight is hands down the best facility and instructional staff in the nation.
Richard Fong, Stock Broker
Front Sight instructors are without a doubt, top notch. They improved my technique incredibly.
Tim Lynch, Retired Marine Officer
Without question Front Sight covers more ground than any other comparable course--civilian, military or law enforcement. The level of proficiency that the average student attains far exceeds the standards expected of military professionals. The material covered and proficiency levels achieved at Front Sight surpass anything I experienced in over 20 years of military service.
Randy Furby, Deputy Sheriff
All of the staff at Front Sight are professional. They are very good at what they do. The course was the most professionally run course I have ever attended. Very impressive both in action and performance.
Charlene Aliangan, Flight Attendant
I had a wonderful experience at Front Sight. I never would have dreamed of shooting a submachine gun in my lifetime. If I can do this course, have fun, and no longer be afraid of guns, then so can you.
Dale Huston, Police Officer
What you learn at Front Sight today, could save your life tomorrow. I'm impressed.
Jerry Jones, Webmaster at Walt Disney World
I can't say enough about Front Sight instructors. They are friendly, patient, well trained, and make sure safety is #1. I already called two of my friends to rave about your course and facilities. We all plan to come back and take the four day handgun class and more.
John Vincent, Mechanical Engineer
Of all the schools and seminars I've attended, Front Sight is the most professional and hardest working. I have and will continue to recommend Front Sight to my friends.
Steve Campbell, Training Supervisor
I have seen many firearms instructors, but the crew at Front Sight really know their stuff. They can handle the newest student to the old hand that thinks he knows everything.
Clifford Nagle, Plumber
Front Sight is the most professional instruction in firearms that I have come across in my twenty years of shooting. Front Sight is the best and I am coming back.
Greg Hahn, Sheet Metal Worker
I've been involved in many courses. Most schools I have attended treat their classes as a job; not anywhere near the passion and dedication to excellence that I experienced at Front Sight.
Peter Nolan, USMC
Without a doubt Front Sight is the most professional and well put together organization I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The facility (even though still under construction) is impeccable. The instructors are knowledgeable, professional, and make the experience enjoyable.
Stephanie Bird, Homemaker
I believe Front Sight is making a lot of dreams come true. The experience was awesome. It gave a whole new meaning to the word 'gun.' You are giving those of us who were previously against guns or knew nothing about guns a much better understanding of what they are all about. As a woman, I feel so much better, knowing that I have training on how to operate a gun to protect myself and my loved ones.
Eddie Ray Lee, Professor
I have taken several one day, two day, and week long courses in my life. Front Sight's course is the best organized and presented. Front Sight should teach teachers how to teach!
Doug Woolley, Army Officer
The course of instruction at Front Sight is excellent. The staff is very professional. I learned a surprising amount of information about handling a submachine gun. A great experience!
Lyle Hayes, Aircraft Maintenance Technician
For five years my issued weapon was a M3A1 Grease Gun (.45ACP submachine gun). I learned more about shooting a submachine gun in one day at Front Sight than I did in five years of military experience. Front Sight is the best training I have ever had, period!
Robert Warren, Policemen
As I was told at the beginning of the Front Sight course, everyone will experience significant improvement over their current skills. This is certainly true.
Todd Vierheller, Software Engineer
The teacher to student ratio at Front Sight is phenomenal and allows instruction to be tailored to the individual's level. The instruction on the shooting aftermath was the most thorough I have ever experienced at any training course. In addition, other schools would have difficulty even coming close to delivering Front Sight training no matter how good their instructors simply due to Front Sight's incredible facilities.
Roger Phillips, Automotive Refinisher
When Front Sight says that their training far exceeds that of law enforcement, that is not just talk. I have shot next to many police officers and their skills are not what they should be. But with an open mind and some effort these same police officers are soon shooting at much higher levels, and have a much better chance of winning a gunfight.
Thomas A. Peppler, Attorney
As all of the veterans attending the course at Front Sight seem to agree, it is the best training available today. I fully support Dr. Piazza's strategy to restore gun ownership to its rightful place in American society.
Kevin Jensen, Race Car Fabricator
I received better training on automatic weapons at Front Sight's free one-day submachine gun course than I did in the US Army.
Sean Rosenberg, Attorney
You'll gain a wealth of knowledge at Front Sight. I do not know of any other civilian training of this kind. The facility is amazing.
Andrew Juknelis, Director of Operations, Curon Medical Inc.
I graduated from West Point and was commissioned as an Infantry officer in 1988. I graduated from the US Army Ranger School and am a combat veteran having served with the 7th Infantry during Operation Just Cause in Panama. As a civilian, I am an NRA instructor of Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun, and Personal Protection. I shoot weekly in a local pistol league. In other words, I thought I knew my stuff when I showed up last week at Front Sight for their one day submachine gun and two day defensive handgun courses. In just three days of training at Front Sight ... (click for more)

This crash course of skills, tactics, and control exceeds many law enforcement curriculum taught to advanced law enforcement.
David Osborn, Jr., Paramedic
Front Sight is a real eye opener if you are a CCW holder and plan to carry a concealed weapon to protect yourself. Front Sight is without hesitation the best training and a must if you want to do it right.
Mike Jones, Police Officer
I have been to numerous instructor courses including the CHP, FBI, and civilian. Front Sight's teaching style and philosophies are second to none. Your techniques will help me with any course I have to instruct. Front Sight instructors are by far the most professional and dedicated staff I have ever met.
Joseph Ponczck, Army Infantry Sergeant
If you want a consistent product, Front Sight will provide it for you. Front Sight is the industry standard.
Jim Sarkauskas, Registered Financial Advisor
I learned more about handgunning in four days at Front Sight than in the past 50 years!
Gregory Dust, Retired Police Sergeant LAPD
This is the best training course that I can remember attending. I learned a ton of information and improved my shooting skills. I recommend Front Sight training for law enforcement officers.
Michael Wrage, Real Estate Agent
Front Sight is the best class I have attended in years. I wish I could encounter the caliber of people I met at Front Sight in my other business and personal dealings.
John Moses, Publisher
If you own a weapon, there is no better place to learn how to use it than Front Sight!
Matt Stone, Police Sergeant
I have carried a shotgun for 14 years as a police officer. After this course at Front Sight, I will use it!
Richard Ferry, Business Manager
Front Sight presents to the entire nation what the right to self defense means in today's society. I applaud the school and its mission. I hope someday my two children (now ages 7 and 10) will have the opportunity to attend Front Sight's training.
Jeffrey Paley, Engineer
Absolutely the most dedicated and competent bunch of professionals I have ever had the pleasure of training with. Very patient and understanding, yet firm in the commitment to facilitate our learning. I know I am 100% more competent than I was just two days ago. You can put yourself in this course knowing little about firearms and defense and in just two days you will come out of this experience more skilled and confident than 90% of the people who own firearms, not only in the mechanics of defense, but the legal and ethical aspects as well. I highly recommend Front ... (click for more)
Kenneth M. "Mack" Elliott, Jr., Retired Naval Officer
As a lifetime shooter, I came to Front Sight expecting to learn. I had no idea how much I did not know. Front Sight's training experience is unmatched.
Dennis DeChance, Construction Estimator
Trying to explain what a Front Sight class is like is like trying to explain the color blue to someone who has been blind from birth. I can try to explain it, but you can't understand until you have experienced it first hand.
Chess Smythe, Emergency Room Tech
Extremely helpful and friendly staff. I was shooting better after the first day than I have in the eight years of practicing on my own at the range.
Beth Duensing, Homemaker
I signed up for a Front Sight course to appease my husband. I agreed to come, but not necessarily to shoot. I was afraid of actually shooting something automatic. The instructors were great. After the first shots were fired, I became much more relaxed and had a fantastic time. Now I will likely come back for another course. Thank you for this opportunity.
Russell Sibell, Laser Engineer
Front Sight is the best organization I have ever dealt with. I will recommend Front Sight to all my family and friends, especially my brother who is a Sheriff's Deputy.
Richard Kutschman, US Naval Officer
Very professional instructors. They are very approachable, incredibly knowledgeable, polite, and humorous. Without a doubt, the best instructors I have ever encountered.
Thomas Wilson, Statistician
I drove 1,100 miles, one-way, to attend this course. The professionalism and knowledge of the courteous staff made this trip well worth my time.
Rev. Michael Mitchell, Ph.D., Minister
This course is the finest training program I could imagine. How Dr. Piazza has assembled and trained such a well disciplined, highly qualified, professional group of instructors is a testament to his skill and leadership. Dr. Piazza is the epitome of a professional leader, business executive, and visionary. May he be most blessed in his endeavors.
Michael Calhoun, Peace Officer
The instructors performed professionally and courteously. Their positive praise and constructive corrections far surpassed any of my previous firearms training. I learned many new tactical techniques that my police academy instructors should adopt and teach.
John Toomey, Satellite Orbital Analyst
Hard to find the right words. If you are a gun owner, this free submachine gun course must be experienced to be believed! It's like no other shooting experience a civilian can imagine.
John M. Capps, Major, USMC
Come here and find out for yourself what a great organization Front Sight is.
Rhonda Lunder, Teacher
Front Sight instructors are awesome! They are encouraging, personable, consistent, professional and courteous. No matter where you start when you arrive, you will improve!
Becky Hyde, Housewife
I came to the handgun course a complete novice. I had fired a pistol before, but relied on my husband to do all the set up before shooting and securing it afterward. I learned not only how to do both of these things, but now feel confident in accurately firing and handling my pistol. This class was a challenge, but was extremely fun and exhilarating. This class pushed me beyond a comfort level I had long enjoyed, but consequently improved me way beyond my expectations. Thank you Front Sight.
Kamie Blake, Mom
Fear of guns is your lack of knowledge of them. There is no better defense against an enemy than a firearm, especially for women. You don't know what you don't know until you come to Front Sight.
Eric Ryden, Police Officer
Front Sight is the future in firearms training. From the novice civilian to the veteran soldier or law enforcement officer, all will gain invaluable knowledge by attending their courses.
Daniel Hall, Fraud Investigator
The free, one day submachine gun course is well worth the $500 dollars you won't have to spend. The Instruction alone is worth the drive; the shooting is a bonus.
Michelle Martin, Kindergarten Teacher
I had an extraordinary time at the submachine gun course. The instructors were talented, knowledgeable, courteous, and safety conscious. This course is a must, especially for women!
Rick Freeman, Corporate Banking Manager
The four day handgun course is excellent instruction with absolutely first-rate content. I was overwhelmingly impressed with the quality and depth of instructors. Front Sight is the best place to learn how to safely and responsibly handle a weapon.
Ryan Foulkner, Executive Protection Agent
Without a doubt, Front Sight exceeds all other schools I've had both while in the USMC and as a civilian in the protective agent roll. I have never seen a school with such professionalism and purpose. Your dedication to your duties in training each and every student is matched by no others.
Levin Liebeck, Law Student
It must be seen to be believed. And there is no catch, just a great time!
Mich Steinmetz, Mortgage Broker
After 15 years as an FFL licensee, I was amazed at what I did not know. I thought I was a safe gun owner and a fair shot. Front Sight showed me I had a lot to learn and in the last four days I have learned a lot! If you own a gun and want to be competent as well as safe, you need to attend Front Sight!
Dale Wysocki, Police Officer
I have been to many schools and Front Sight is the best and that is why I purchased a membership. Front Sight has qualified instructors that can do what they preach. Front Sight has consistency of instruction--all of the instructors follow the same format which alleviates any confusion. Front Sight has an attention to detail. Front Sight provides intensity and volume of training. I picked up more in a couple of days at Front Sight than years elsewhere. If you are interested in becoming a truly proficient and responsible gun handler and want to participate in shooting sports at a first ... (click for more)
Mark Mazzella, Stockbroker
The four day handgun course was an excellent class. I expected to get 1/3 the amount of material that the class actually covered. It is amazing how well you can do once you are taught proper techniques. Now, I do not have any doubts about the outcome of a gunfight I might be in. If you intend to own a firearm, it is an absolute must to attend a course at Front Sight. Your life and the lives of your family depend on it.
Maita Castellanes, Office Manager
Front Sight is an awesome place to learn and shoot a submachine gun. The instructors are professional, personable, and patient. I enjoyed it immensely. It is an experience everyone should try.
Jeff Caulk, Naval Flight Officer
Fantastic experience! Front Sight's free submachine gun course was better instruction than the 'fam fires' I've done in my 13 years in the Navy. I had loads of fun and received fantastic training. My skills improved 200% with this one day course. Just do it. There are no strings attached.
George Lohmann, Police Officer
Front Sight easily exceeded the firearms training I have previously received in my police career. I will definitely be returning in the future to the fountain of firearms training at Front Sight.
SSG, Dale R. Mohr
As a 14 year veteran of the US Army Special Forces, I have never been to a better school on the use of handguns. It was so great to learn from instructors who are not only good teachers, but who can also perform the tasks on demand. One of the things that impressed me most was how well rounded the class was. We were taught safe gun handling, marksmanship skills, legal and moral aspects of owning and using firearms and what needs to be done to preserve our firearm freedoms. We were taught what every firearm owner or user should know ... (click for more)
Terri Kuegel, Registered Nurse
The free submachine gun course was the best firearms class I have ever been to. I can't wait for my next course. I learned more in this one day course that I have in other 2 and 3 day courses.
Glenn Frank, Veterinarian Scientist
Front Sight took me from virtually never pulling a weapon from my holster to feeling quite comfortable in doing so now. If you ever thought about handling a pistol for sport or defensive purposes, you must take a course at Front Sight. It is extremely informative, a dramatic skill builder, and outrageously fun too! I'm not even in the same universe of skills now as compared to four days ago.
Roland Vergeer, Technical Director
Front Sight is top of the line training from professionals who know what it is to be a student. They not only teach you what to do, but also why it is done that way.
Bobbi Bowen, Computer Engineer
To get to the National Team for International Skeet Shooting, I had some of the best coaches in the world. These coaches included former Olympic Gold Medal winners and their coaches. Front Sight's staff are among the best instructors I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Jeff Ma, Medical Research Technician
I had read others' comments before arriving at Front Sight and I always thought they were exaggerating. Now I know why the comments are so positive!
Bruce J. McSurdy, MD
I flew over 2000 miles to attend this course. Had I known how good it would be, I would have walked, if necessary.
Stephen Eichelberger, Attorney
It was everything I'd heard about it--First Rate Instruction (better than I had in the Marine Corps), all promises kept, and something I'm proud to have been a part of. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You will receive more than you could possibly expect.
Katie Rylant, Veterinarian Technician
Before this class I would not have considered traveling this far (8 hours) to take a gun course. Now, I am definitely interested in returning for another course.
Jason Petterson, Police Officer
They say some things sound too good to be true, but Front Sight is the exception. This class was the reason I came to Las Vegas from Minnesota and this class made the trip well worth the time and expense.
Tim Harvey, Police Officer
Some of the best, if not the best instruction that I have had in a long, long, time.
Jason Griffith, Commercial Real Estate Agent
The Four Day Practical Rifle course was outstanding! The best firearms training I have ever had. About the same time I attended Front Sight, my brother-in-law just finished Army Basic Training. Several weeks later, he and I had the opportunity to compare our training and have a shoot-off. My brother-in-law concluded that I received far better training and more advanced tactical training in four days at Front Sight than he did after 14 weeks of Army Basic Training with the M-16. I consistently outshot him with my AR15 at 200 and 300 yards! Thank you Front Sight! I will be back.
Robert Herrera
Front Sight broadened my views about submachine guns and more. I just finished five years in the Marine Corps and I learned something new, today, at Front Sight.
Dr. Suzanne Hedden, College Professor
The instructors are true professionals. They were helpful and 100% safety conscious. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about submachine guns. I wholeheartedly endorse this program.
Roger Quinlan, Martial Arts Instructor
A+. Outstanding. Better than I could describe. Very professional. No BS. No Gimmicks. Better than I could have imagined.
Andy Madison, Heavy Equipment Operator
My initial skepticism about the free submachine gun course (you don't get something for nothing, etc.) was alleviated the moment the course started. The course was fun and very informative. With all the impressive credentials of the instructors, I was happily surprised at how helpful and encouraging all of them were. I saw no signs of impatience, conceit or condescending attitudes.
Doug McDonald, Semiconductor Engineer
I would highly recommend the course just to hear Dr. Piazza's presentations alone!
Bernard Dunn, Electrical Mechanic
I have owned handguns since I was 18. I am now 57. I do not have words to describe how little I knew before coming to Front Sight and I did not know that I did not know. Now I know, and can do something about it.
John Earl, Engineer
I am amazed at how small details take on such importance; and Front Sight focuses on the details. I talked with police officers in my class and they were just as impressed as I was. Front Sight is changing the industry!
M. Cameron Jensen, Physician
The training was very personal. It seemed like one-on-one most of the time. The instructors made sure everyone was up to speed so no one was left behind. Dr. Piazza's lectures were extremely informative and dramatically presented invaluable information rarely found elsewhere which is essential to be truly prepared for a real-life, self defense encounter.
Darryl Powers, Arson Investigator
Public or private, this was by far the best handgun course I have ever attended. Great job by the entire staff.
Kevin Moore, Airline Employee
I found the course, instructors and overall effort to be of the highest caliber. It is refreshing to see a business effort based on such high principles.
Lee Thomas, Letter Carrier
Everything is experienced as advertised rare in today's marketplace. Dr. Piazza must be considered a visionary and a great patriot.
Frank Bergschneider, Production Manager
Received more training, in such a short amount of time than I would have believed. Great instructors and they made you feel like they really cared about your training even if it was free.
Christopher R. Goggin, Carpenter
Very enlightening and enjoyable! Just one day of instruction and I've learned so much! I can only imagine what a four day course consists of in any of the courses offered. I can't wait to come back!
Travis Clayton, Graduate Student
Very simply, the Front Sight, Free Submachine Gun course is top-notch. You will learn more in one free training day than any number of days at the range. These guys are rock-solid professionals!
Ron Glenn, Glenn Security Systems
If you want to keep The Second Amendment alive, go see the people and the attitude that will make it happen and then spread the word. At the same time have a blast learning to properly handle submachine gun for free!
Ron Welch, Cabinet Maker
This is the most comprehensive day of firearms training I have ever experienced in 35 years of competitive shooting. I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Front Sight. The organization is very professional and the instructors are the best I have seen in one group.
Carol English, Real Estate Agent
I figured we would sit through a huge real estate presentation, then up to the firing line for a quick demo on the gun and a few short bursts on full auto. Instead, we received a full, one day course, plus breakfast, plus lunch, plus all the ammo and the guns free! And no real estate presentation. The instructors are true professionals. These guys know their stuff. They demonstrate the highest competence and were all extremely articulate in conveying the information, plus I felt they were truly interested in my learning and improving my skills while having a good time.
Ellwyn L. Laxson, Retired Fighter Pilot
Everything was First Class!
Todd Matthews, Internet Commerce
You covered everything completely. Way above my expectations!!! It was the most comprehensive class, the best firearms training I ever had; far better than even my military training.
Debra Teal, Housewife
I came because my husband insisted. I expected not to enjoy myself because I did not feel competent enough to do this and was really apprehensive. But what I found is that the instructors were so patient and encouraging. I was like the little engine that said, 'I think I can, I think I can-I know I can!' You don't have to be an expert to attend this course. It is as enjoyable for a novice like myself as it is to shooters of all skill levels. Don't be intimidated. Try it!
William Haller, Project Manager
Front Sight is the best firearms training available. Front Sight has made me feel more comfortable with a weapon than the last three previous instructions I have had.
Bryan Hyde, Radio Personality
Your institute is a shining example of professionalism, leadership, and common sense. I have never attended a class that I did not come away from better in every sense as a firearms owner and shooter. Your staff is personable, credible, and knowledgeable.
Cameron Hansen, School Teacher
If it were possible to improve upon perfection, you have done it! I attended in October and was awestruck, and this time it was even better. I like how the facility continues to improve as well as the improved teaching techniques. Having each instructor specialize in a portion of the instruction is an outstanding teaching technique. It gives the student a variety of personalities and teaching styles. I tell everyone about this incredible place!
Keith Owen, Martial Arts Instructor
This was very, very, very professional training. I'm a martial arts instructor and I learned a lot about teaching and being professional from the staff at Front Sight.
John Lowenbruck, Tile and Marble Contractor
The instructors at Front Sight are larger than life. Anything I can tell you about the course really won't do it justice until you come and see for yourself.
James R. Morris, Human Resource Coordinator
Front Sight is the most progressive step I have ever seen toward bringing responsible gun ownership into a light that even Sarah Brady could not say anything bad about. The instructors are professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun.
Daryl Okayama, Firearms Instructor
The instruction is top notch, concise, and clear. To offer this type of instruction to civilians is brilliant and it is such a good deal because it is absolutely 100% no-strings-attached FREE! Where can you get that type of value? You can't even buy this kind of training at most of the other shooting schools. Front Sight is the most positive, professional training experience that I have ever attended.
Kamie Blake, Homemaker
A lot of women are afraid of guns. Coming to a course at Front Sight will teach you how to be more confident with weapons and yourself. You will know how to defend yourself and those you love.
Dewey Winstead, USAF Medical Technician
Very professional, yet fun loving instructional staff. I was especially pleased to meet Dr. piazza and see him taking the time to help instruct in the class.
Robert Tonachio, Insurance Marketing
The course was excellent, well planned, exceptional. The instructors were all very professional. This is an outstanding opportunity to participate in an outstanding program.
Donna DeHaan, Professional Keyboard Artist
I was glad I came! As a 61 year old grandmother, I was truly impressed by the professionalism, patience, and hospitality of the whole staff. Everyone was exceptionally friendly. Go see for yourself. It is an incredible opportunity. Give yourself an educational, enlightening experience.
Laura Cheney, Homemaker
As a beginner, I found my learning curve to be straight up. The course pace was fast enough to push the student yet allowed time to digest all the material. I found the instructors to be very professional, knowledgeable, extremely competent, alert, and helpful at all times. I appreciate that they were not patronizing or condescending to me because I am a woman. The course was challenging and fun!
Harold Todd, Fireman
The most pleasurable shooting experience I have ever had since shooting my first shots with Dad over forty years ago. Front Sight will be the Mecca of the shooting sport training profession. All of the instructors were of the highest caliber. Professional, courteous, and knowledgeable--the best I have ever seen. The Front Sight course in submachine gun is the best one day event any shooter can experience!
Melissa B., Registered Nurse
I had an absolute blast and learned a great deal about how to control a submachine gun properly. The instructors were outstanding and very patient even with novices like myself.
Jami Armstrong, Controller
It was a great experience for me. Since I never had shot any gun before I was a little nervous about taking this course, but the staff made me feel very comfortable and it turned out to be a lot of fun.
Robert Tippit, Police Firearms Instructor
Fantastic! Stupendous! Every time I step foot on Front Sight property I learn something new. As a firearms instructor, I have found that the most knowledgeable and dedicated instructor cadre in the business can be found at Front Sight. When I am asked about other training schools, the first words out of my mouth are Front Sight!
Charles Haase, Economics Professor
This is the most fun and most instructive day I have spent in a very long time. All of Front Sight's instructors are professional and well spoken, delivering their lessons with crispness and precision. The submachine gun course was interesting, educational, and most importantly, a lot of fun!
Carol Hill, Artist
Impressive!!! I was a little nervous at first, but the course was so well choreographed that I soon became at ease. I really enjoyed myself and came away feeling competent that I could handle myself with an Uzi submachine gun! I can't say enough about the instructors. I would rather travel to Las Vegas than attend courses locally.
Irlene Mandrell, Entertainer
If you get a chance to take this class at any price, it would be great. All the instructors were very professional and fun to be around. Don't miss the chance to take this class for free. You will not only learn more about shooting, but more about life and how to save yours.
David Streck, Attorney
Absolutely fantastic! I cannot think of any ways to improve upon such an amazing course.
Elliot Grossman, Attorney at Law
Although I've been a gun owner for many years, it shocks me to think about how little I knew about properly shooting a handgun before starting a Front Sight. Thank you Dr. Piazza and Front Sight instructors! I highly recommend your school for anyone from the first-time shooter to the long-time gun owner and experienced shooter. The instruction and teaching methodology is excellent. The instructors are personable and friendly and the atmosphere is supportive.
Dr. Scott J. Heun, Chiropractor
Front Sight is without a doubt, the finest school of any kind I have ever attended!
Gilbert Onaka M.D., Physician
Front Sight is the finest instructional firearms school in the U.S. bar none. The instructional staff made for a wonderful learning experience. Truly a class act.
Matt Stone, Police Sergeant
Front Sight's training has prepared me for a 1st Place finish in a gun fight.
David Kapler, Fire Chief
This is the best instruction available on all aspects of using a weapon for self defense legal as well as tactical. The classroom instruction was the best I have ever had.
Cameron Hansen, Teacher
The Front Sight organization will improve your shooting and weapons handling skill. It is incredibly awesome! It is a thrill to shoot, but better than that, you will walk away with a greater confidence in yourself that you likely will not find anywhere else.
Richard Besocke, Teacher
If you own a firearm, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones, and the general public to be trained and prepared to in the use of your weapon. Front Sight is THE organization to provide the training.
Doug Whittaker, Police Officer
The instructors at Front Sight were the best weapons instructors I've ever dealt with. Knowledgeable, fun, and always willing to help. Thanks!
Lt. Colonel Charles S. McDonald, USAF
The excellent instruction I received today exceeds all the weapons training I experienced in 24 years of active military service. I salute Dr. Piazza and the Front Sight staff.
Beatrice Harrold, Captain, US Naval Reserves
As an OIC (Officer in Charge) of a Naval Reserve Fleet Hospital Detachment, I am confident that should I be recalled to active duty and need to handle a weapon, I could do so with the confidence and solid foundation built by Front Sight. You guys are head and shoulders above the industry standard. Thank you for awakening me!
Mike Docherty, Police Detective
This is the third course I have taken at Front Sight and I will be back for more.
Lesa, Student
Excellent staff. Everyone is so helpful. Never once was I made to feel dumb when I made a mistake. The staff is very professional with corrections and suggestions on how to do it better.
Kristine Scott, Homemaker
I've been shooting for about 13 years and it's amazing how much my skills have improved in just two days.
Viktoria Hawkins, Associate at Home Depot
It will give you a better understanding of the whole shooting process and really help you to see the gun as a tool, not something to be afraid of!
