Front Sight Student of the WeekBruce Bagin
Small Business Owner
My name is Bruce Bagin. I'm a small business owner. I currently reside in (?) Florida. I've been in business now for forty years as a (?) contractor.
I'm here at Front Sight to receive a handgun defensive training course as a result of an armed invasion of my home. I will admit to being relaxed and in condition white while watching television one evening. There was a knock at my front door. I got up and went to the front door - I live in a rural area - there is no alarm for me because I'm not in an expensive area. I did not expect to find anybody at the front door that was going to be a problem. The moment I opened that front door it was pushed in, I had a gun put into my face, I was forced to the ground.
There was a second person there. My wife heard the first person shouting out, "Get on the ground, get on the ground". From watching television she had enough experience to know what that meant. She grabbed the telephone. She locked herself in the bathroom and immediately dialed 911. While they had me on the ground, they were attempting to handcuff me. In my mind that was a dead end direction. I was resisting as best I could with a gun on me. My wife in the meantime is trying to convince a 911 operator that we have someone with a gun in the house.
