Have you ever tried to find good gun training? Like, really, really good gun training? If you tried prior to 1996 I bet you ran into some issues. Back then, finding really awesome gun training required talent. Lucky for us, now we can easily find great gun training and great gun training deals with Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. At Front Sight, you will find not only good gun training… you will find the best gun training in the world.
Founder and Director, Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, ran into those issues when he was trying to find his own gun training back in the late eighties and early nineties. He really wanted to learn how to use a gun for self defense and family protection, but he kept running into walls and dead ends. Some gun training schools seemed promising, but then it turned out they were seriously lacking in some areas. Each gun training school that Ignatius Piazza came across had strengths and weaknesses. But where was the gun training school with only strengths?
The frustration that Ignatius Piazza experienced when he was on what should have been a simple search for basic self defense gun training became even greater on his quest to become a Four Weapons Combat Master… and he decided that no one should ever have to go through this again. Thus, he made up his mind to create the gun training school with no weaknesses. He worked tirelessly and finally, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute opened its doors in April of 1996. It has done so much for the gun training world ever since.
What are the strengths that you look for in your gun training? I would answer that question by saying complete material that focuses on gun safety and how to use a gun correctly, a gun training program for all experience levels, knowledgeable and friendly staff members, incredibly experienced gun training instructors who give one on one attention, and it would also help if the environment was fun and inviting. I can see how most gun training schools would have a couple of those qualifications, but I can also see how it would be difficult to house all of them at once. Well, Ignatius Piazza pulls it off with Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.
Let me break it down. The gun training curriculum at Front Sight focuses greatly on gun safety and nothing is left out. Every exercise taught, learned and practiced at Front Sight is safe and supervised. Students feel as if they are getting personal gun training, even with other people in the class, because the instructors are, literally, the best gun training instructors in the world. Questions are answered immediately and thoroughly, until each student fully understands the answer. Every employee at Front Sight, even the people that answer the phones and work in the Pro Shop, are trained in Front Sight’s gun training program, extremely sharp AND super nice. On top of all that, Front Sight’s gun training courses are SO MUCH FUN.
Check it out and you will see that Front Sight truly is the gun training school with all strength and no weakness.

How often do you find yourself in a situation that you really wish you knew self defense? Being a 5’3” girl, I often used to catch myself thinking these thoughts. I used to visit a certain bar with some friends. Our friend bartended there and we loved going out, having a good time and being at a bar that we considered safe. Our group was usually between eight and twelve people and we were also friends with the manager, so we were never worried about shady bar activities that sometimes happen. However, one boy changed all of that for me. He struck up a conversation and we went outside on the front sidewalk as many of us often did to escape the noise and get some fresh air for a few minutes.
After having my head slammed into a brick wall and being forced to do some questionable things, I was afraid to go outside by myself. I was nervous to be in places that people could not see me and I rarely walked outside alone after that. If I had been in Code Yellow instead of Code White, this would not have happened. I would have been able to stop the guy before he even touched me, because I would have been more aware of what was going on.
What is this Code Yellow and Code White? They are both phases of the Color Code of Mental Awareness, as taught by Dr. Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. During Ignatius Piazza’s gun training and self defense training courses, he teaches the Color Code of Mental Awareness to help raise your awareness of the world around you. Ignatius Piazza teaches that you can be so aware of your surroundings that you can often see a threatening situation before it becomes dangerous, giving yourself more time to respond, and thus, giving yourself more time to escape.
I became aware of the situation at hand when I hit the bricks. However, at that point, the guy (who was much stronger than me) already had me in a position where I needed to comply or something worse could happen. My newfound headache made it harder for me to think clearly, making it more difficult to weasel my way out from his grasp. If I had taken a gun training course from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight and learned how to be aware of my surroundings and the people around me, I could have recognized him as a threat from the very beginning and avoided the situation entirely.
Now that I have had some excellent gun training from Front Sight’s incredible gun training instructors, I am more aware of what is going on around me. I catch myself in Code White sometimes and am able to correct it. Ignatius Piazza has helped me because now I know that I never again have to be caught off guard like that. I am safer now because of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight Firearms Training Institute… and now I have no problem walking to my car alone, because I know I can protect myself.

Hi, again. Let’s take a quick review at where we are in my saga. (Random fact: If you Google “define saga” the first definition that comes up is “A long story of heroic achievement.” I kind of consider this story of my first visit to Front Sight Firearms Training Institute applicable. After all, Front Sight trains heroes.) Okay so my friend and I checked into Front Sight, the gun training instructors were epic, the lectures were incredible thus far and I was the worst shooter in the world.
One of the things about Front Sight’s gun training instructors is that they train you to not only be a perfect shooter, but they also train you to have confidence in yourself and in your shooting. Front Sight can train you to be a perfect shooter even if you are as bad as I was in the beginning. Founder and director of Front Sight, Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, trained his gun training instructors well in all areas of gun training, including having exceptional customer service and a caring attitude. They work hard at helping their students embrace what they are good at in order to improve and perfect the things that they are not so good at. By encouraging a student’s strengths, that student gains a confidence that they could not have gained if the gun training instructors simply said, “We need to work on such and such.”
Ignatius Piazza’s instructors helped me find my strength: my presentation speed. What does that mean? That means that I was able to have my gun out of the holster and ready to shoot faster than some of the guys could get their hands on their guns. No kidding. This surprised me (and I think it surprised my friend, as well.) Well, my gun training instructors noticed that and they encouraged me and helped me get faster and better at presenting my weapon, so when it came time to actually shoot, I had way more time to focus and more confidence in my abilities. I was still shooting off target, but my confidence was growing and my instructors kept working with me. I felt like I was getting a private shooting lesson from a gun training instructor. But you know what? I asked around, and everyone else in my class felt the same way. Somehow, one range master and two gun training instructors made all of us students feel like we were the only kid in class. How great is that?
So why was I still shooting off target? My gun training instructors honed my skills so that I had more than enough time to aim. Have you ever heard the term “mashing the trigger?” Yeah… I was doing that. But we will go more into that later. Right now I want to tell you about one of the coolest features of Front Sight: the home invasion scenario. Yes, I literally got to walk through a house and shoot bad guys and save good guys. Did I mention that Front Sight is FUN, as well as helpful? Join me in The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, Part Four to hear all about it.

Take a good look around your house. Now take a good look at yourself. Are you safe? If someone were to break into your house, would you know how to protect your family, yourself and your belongings? Do you own a gun? If so, do you know how to use it?
The Second Amendment of the Constitution provides law abiding citizens with the right to keep and bear arms. This means that if we want to own a gun for self defense, we are allowed to do so. However, if we choose to practice that right, it is important that we do the responsible thing and get gun training. If we own a gun but do not know how to properly and safely operate it, we are putting ourselves and our loved ones in danger. But, good gun training will change all of that. Guns in the hands of someone who has been properly trained can provide safety and security in a world of dangerous situations. The trouble is, is that good gun training is hard to find.
That is where you have an advantage. You do not need to look any further, because I am about to let you in on a little something. The best gun training in the world can be found at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. Front Sight is a gun training school located just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. It is built on a huge plot of land, giving space for several gun training ranges and a developing community for gun enthusiasts. For nearly fourteen years, Front Sight has provided law abiding citizens with exceptional gun training, training tens of thousands of students each year.
Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, is the founder of Front Sight. He, just like many Americans, had guns in his home and knew how to use them, due to his time at the shooting ranges. However, when faced with a scary, life threatening event, Ignatius Piazza realized that he did not have the gun handling skills that he needed to protect himself and his family. While searching for the best gun training available, Ignatius Piazza found something very disappointing. As stated earlier, good gun training is hard to find! That is one reason why Ignatius Piazza started Front Sight. Now you do not have to go through the turmoil that he had to endure in order to find adequate gun training to protect his family. Front Sight makes it easy for you to learn how to protect your family.
But he knew he couldn’t provide top quality gun training to thousands of people on his own. This is why Ignatius Piazza makes sure that Front Sight houses only the best of the best gun training instructors. To become a Front Sight gun training instructor, applicants must undergo an intense gun training instructor course. If an applicant is among the ten percent that pass the course, he will move on to the next stage of the hiring process. Once hired, Ignatius Piazza requires that all Front Sight instructor continue their gun training by attending ongoing courses that provide the newest and most state of the art gun training information and customer service training. As you can see, Ignatius Piazza takes pride in his gun training instructors, because the best gun training can only come from the best instructor.
If you are searching for the best gun training around, your search is over. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute has got you covered.

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the top quality gun training school near Las Vegas, Nevada, offers a huge variety of gun training courses to suit everyone’s goals and needs. The term “everyone” is not used loosely in this context – Front Sight really shoots for meeting as many people’s gun training needs as possible, as the goal of the school is to reach the entire world, making our lives safer, more fulfilling and just better in general. Sure, the idea of helping one person become safer and more self sufficient is a positive thing. But if helping one person is good, wouldn’t helping thousands and thousands be even better? Dr. Ignatius Piazza, Four Weapons Combat Master, founder and director of Front Sight has got the idea. The more people someone can help, the better. Front Sight’s plan of action to do this is simple. Step One: Offer incredible gun training – better than the gun training someone can receive at the other schools out there. Step Two: Only hire the best instructors, office staff and assistants, who are all well versed in gun training, the Front Sight self defense program, the highest quality customer service and will work harder than employees of any other company, period. Step Three: Have a large array of gun training courses, so that students can learn how to use any type of gun they choose. Do not only give them one or two options. Step Four: Offer tons of great deals on gun training and gear, practically giving away Front Sight’s services. Step Five: Guarantee the gun training program.
These five steps have set Front Sight Firearms Training Institute apart from the rest, and it is because of steps like these that Ignatius Piazza can say he is the founder of the most successful and best gun training school in the world. Front Sight helps thousands of people from all over the world each year secure themselves the comfort of skill at arms, making them more confident, safer and less anxious about dangerous situations. The gun training school opened in April of 1996 and has grown tremendously since then, each year reaching more and more law abiding citizens, with the goal of one day reaching everyone in the world. Front Sight has changed the world for the better, improving experienced shooters’ gun handling techniques, increasing the skills of moderate shooters and teaching even absolute beginners the correct way to safely and effectively use a gun for self defense. Front Sight has been endorsed by many people, including people who used to be afraid of weapons and seasoned shooters, like military officers. The consensus is that Front Sight is the best gun training school available to the world today, no matter what your past gun training experience is, and no matter what your future gun training plans and goals are.
Ignatius Piazza has worked very hard to get Front Sight where it is today, and plans on continuing his efforts until he has reached and helped as many people as humanly possible. Front Sight has proven itself time and time again to be THE place to receive gun training.

You know how some people get in fights over silly things? I have written before about random acts of violence and how you need to protect yourself, even from the people you think you know. Some people get angered by things that we view as trivial, such as the time I talked about people getting killed over a line cutting incident. This time, a fifty three year old attacked her boyfriend when he told her he did not want a piece of sliced bread and that he would rather have a bread roll. Seriously. That actually happened. How did she attack him? She claimed to do this so he could “learn”… but she hit him in the head with a raw steak. Apparently it was a pretty bad hit, because he was offered medical assistance. The man that was hit is considered a disabled adult. Ignatius Piazza of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Nevada wants you to know that it does not matter how old you are. It does not matter what size you are. It does not matter how much strength you have or do not have. Self defense training and gun training can benefit even the most feeble of people!
Through Front Sight’s gun training courses and self defense training courses, Ignatius Piazza teaches how to use a gun safely for self defense and how to use your own body to your benefit, no matter how much size and strength your attacker has on you. Students of Front Sight come from all walks of life and are not just your typical blue collar, conservative male who grew up shooting guns at tin cans and clay pigeons. Ignatius Piazza welcomes every law abiding citizen that has an interest in staying safe, keeping their personal freedoms and / or protecting their family. Front Sight offers gun training for women and gun training for professionals. Housewives, lawyers, and door to door sales people can benefit from Ignatius Piazza’s training. Ignatius Piazza even offers gun training for teens!
People have asked me, “Why are you going to write about a steak throwing incident? How does that have anything to do with self defense?” My reply? One – Like I have stated, Ignatius Piazza wants to show you that if a person with the strength of a sixty year old person was attacked by someone with the size and strength of a defensive line member of the San Diego Chargers, there is no reason that the weaker of the two cannot prevail. You just have to know the specific techniques to keep you safe, and Ignatius Piazza wants to teach them to you! Two – This is a case of domestic violence. Domestic violence is, sadly, not a rare occurrence. In today’s world, we need to learn how to protect ourselves even from the people we least suspect. Self defense training and gun training from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight will teach you how to protect yourself from domestic violence. Let Ignatius Piazza create a safer world for you. Call Front Sight.

College campuses, unfortunately, are places that do not allow people to use weapons for self defense. However, college campuses are pretty much breeding grounds for attacks. Many schools have those brightly colored emergency phones, but really, how long do you think it takes for campus security to respond to a call? And what if you are not near one of those telephones in the first place? Are you just out of luck? You do not have to be, if you get self defense training from Dr. Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Even if you are not allowed to have a gun or a knife on a school campus, this does not mean that your attacker will not have one. Actually, chances are, they will be armed. Ignatius Piazza’s gun training and knife training courses teach you things like how to disarm your attacker. Once you have successfully taken your opponent’s weapon, you will be happy that you have received your knife training and gun training from Front Sight, because you will know just what to do to escape from the situation.
Ignatius Piazza, a Four Weapons Combat Master, knows a great deal of information about weapons and weapons training. His knife training and gun training courses are far superior to the courses at other gun training schools in the world. Courses like defensive handgun training, gun training for beginners and advanced gun training will prepare you to protect yourself at the time of an attack. You should be especially aware of your surroundings if you are a college student who takes night classes. Walking to your car alone in the dark with no self defense training is a prime way to end up a victim. Walking to your car alone in the dark when you have had gun training from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight is a much better idea, as no attacker will stand a chance against you and your training. If your attacker is armed, as I said earlier, Front Sight’s weapons training will prepare you to disarm him and use HIS weapon for your own self defense. If you are lucky and he is unarmed, the courses at Front Sight will also benefit you, because you will learn self defense techniques that can be used whether or not you have a gun. The gun training at Front Sight is helpful, even in places where guns are banned!
Why let yourself be at risk? Why should you be afraid to walk alone to your car? Why allow someone to hurt you? You shouldn’t! You do not have to! Call Ignatius Piazza today and arrange for your gun training courses at Front Sight. You will be so happy that you called Front Sight when you see what great results you get. Ignatius Piazza will personally make sure that you get the best quality training possible, so that whenever you are in a sticky situation, you will have the advantage over your predator. If you are a college student, spend a weekend at Front Sight. It is so close to Las Vegas that you can be on the range during the day and on the strip at night. It is a great vacation for you and your friends! Check out Front Sight’s website today to see the gun training courses available. Don’t wait!

Concealed Carry Weapons Permits are not available in every state – yet. Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute near Las Vegas, Nevada, wants to show you why CCW Permits are crucial for the law abiding citizens of the country. We, as Americans, should have the right to defend ourselves. Owning a gun is a great form of self defense, and it is awesome to have one in your house for protection, but not all attacks happen at home. Many attacks happen out on the street, where it is necessary to have a CCW Permit if you want to be carrying your weapon. If an attacker comes at us with a gun, why should we have to rely on other means to keep ourselves safe? It does not exactly seem like we are getting a fair chance at protection if the bad guy has a gun and we are denied the opportunity to have one, too. You may be thinking, “Well, if guns are outlawed, no one will be able to use a gun against me!” But, think about it. The criminal in our example IS an outlaw. Who is to say he won’t have a gun just because it is “illegal?” It is illegal to attack someone on the street, and he is still doing that! It is a good possibility that if someone is going to attack you, he is going to have a weapon in his hand.
Ignatius Piazza wants to share with you the story of Elliot Firby. You can see the full story at http://www.ignatius-piazza-front-sight.com/2009/06/22/ignatius-piazza-shotgun-in-your-face-and-380-in-your-pocket/. Mr. Firby was attacked by a man with a gun. The barrel of the shotgun was too close to his face for comfort. Luckily, Mr. Firby has a CCW Permit and had a gun in his pocket, so he was able to escape. If he did not have a gun, there is a good chance that Mr. Firby might not be here today to tell his story. Now you are probably thinking, “But no one has anything against me. I am just a normal person with no reason to be attacked.” So was Mr. Firby.
There are currently several states that are considered “Shall Issue” states. This means that citizens in the state can own and carry a concealed weapon if they have the permit for it. Ignatius Piazza offers a 30 State Concealed Carry Weapons Permit Course at Front Sight. In Front Sight’s CCW Permit course, students learn everything they need to know about securing themselves a Concealed Carry Permit, even in the states that like to make it extremely difficult. Pair up Ignatius Piazza’s CCW Permit Course with one of Front Sight’s specialized gun training courses like handgun training, shotgun training or night gun training, and you will have the perfect recipe for self defense, no matter where you are! You and your family will finally be safe from viscous attacks at home and out in public. Call Front Sight today to check it out!

The men and women in the United States Armed Services – who are they to you? These are people that defend my freedom and my life and most of them do not even know me. These are people who provide me with safety and protection from foreign invaders and many of them will never see my face. These are people who would die for me. These are people who HAVE died for me. They have died for you. And they will not ever stop these noble acts. The simple fact that they do not know you personally does not stop them from putting their lives on the line for you. Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute wants to personally thank each and every one of these brave heroes by offering them the chance of a lifetime. It is called the Front Sight Military Appreciation Lifetime Membership, and it is available exclusively to past and present military members and their families. Front Sight’s Lifetime Memberships are amazing gun training program memberships that offer huge discounts on gun training, Front Sight benefits and other member’s only perks. Front Sight’s Military Appreciation Lifetime Membership goes beyond the best deal Ignatius Piazza has ever offered before, as a special thanks to military personnel. Owners of the Front Sight Military Appreciation Lifetime Membership can attend Front Sight’s Two Day Defensive Handgun Training Course, Two Day Tactical Shotgun Training Course and the Two Day Practical Rifle Training Course as many times as they wish – for the rest of their lives! Not only that – but as a Lifetime Membership Owner, whenever you want to attend a Front Sight gun training course with Ignatius Piazza, there will be NO WAITING LIST! That means that you have guaranteed placement in your gun training courses, no matter how many other people want to take the course. Since Front Sight is the number one gun training school in the world, that benefit in itself is absolutely amazing. In addition to these and other Member’s only invitations and benefits, these military personnel will receive a free gun! And, as if that was not enough, Ignatius Piazza, also known as the Millionaire Patriot will personally donate $25 for every Military Appreciation Lifetime Membership that is sold to a fund for a man named David Hall, who spends more of his own time and energy honoring the lives of these incredible men and women. (You can learn more about David Hall and his touching story by visiting Ignatius Piazza’s personal blog at http://www.ignatius-piazza-front-sight.com/2009/11/23/ignatius-piazza-a-man-doing-more-than-his-share/).
Anyway, why might a person in the military want a Front Sight Lifetime Membership? Don’t they already have the world’s best gun training? Not necessarily. Countless men and women in uniform have attended Front Sight and left raving that they learned more from Ignatius Piazza than they did in boot camp, out on the field or in decades of military experience. Ignatius Piazza really offers the best gun training money can buy, hands down. So now that I have explained what owners of this new Lifetime Membership receive and I have expressed the caliber of Front Sight’s gun training, I guess it is time to go over what you really want to know – how much is this membership going to cost? Actually, I kind of think this is the best part. Keep in mind that it costs about one thousand dollars to attend one of the listed Front Sight gun training courses. Then add in that you can attend them however many times you want for the rest of your life. Then don’t forget to include the exclusive benefits and Front Sight parties. I’m not going to include the free gun in this equation because, well, it’s free. Anyway, if you add it all together, you’d probably expect to be spending several thousand dollars. However, just to express his thanks to the men and women of the military, Ignatius Piazza is making this offer available for under a thousand dollars! It is baffling to see this kind of deal anywhere, so be sure to inform your friends who are in the military. This is definitely an offer too good to refuse!

Some people love guns. They are comfortable holding them, shooting them and think they are just great. Others can’t stand to even be in a room with a gun. Still, others are indifferent and do not really care either way. No matter your position, the fact remains that knowing how to use a gun can help save your life and the lives of your loved ones. Just because you hate guns does not mean that an attacker is going to take that into consideration when approaching you and put his gun back in its holster. If someone comes at you with a gun, you have a few choices. You can run. You can get shot. Or you can disarm your attacker and escape safely. How do you expect to do that if you are not properly trained in gun use? Let me promise you right now, that no matter how scary you think guns are, with Dr. Ignatius Piazza’s gun training program at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, you will soon stand confident and safe, unwavering in physical and emotional strength when your fingers are wrapped around a gun. Take it from Laurie, a stunned student of Front Sight. She hates violence of any kind. She was super fearful that something might accidentally happen with the gun in her house. Convinced by her husband, she attended Front Sight. On her first day, Laurie’s face was soaked with tears of fear. Yet, Front Sight’s gun training instructors took her under their wings and helped her through her anxiety. She knew that the current economy was putting stress on a lot of people, and there was a high risk of being attacked or robbed because people are on a quest to find money. She did it for her husband. She did it for her three year old grandson. But most of all, she did it for herself.
Laurie finished that self defense gun training course at Front Sight. Now, she is confident that should someone break into her home, she and her grandson will be safe, even if her husband is not there to protect them. Laurie is not Front Sight’s only success story. Thousands upon thousands of people each year receive unbeatable gun training from Ignatius Piazza and his team of highly trained gun training instructors. Every time, even the most apprehensive students are put at ease with Front Sight’s gun training program, because they are educated and trained in gun safety first and foremost. It is for this reason and several other reasons that Front Sight has grown to be the number one gun training school in the entire world. Where do you currently stand? Do you love guns or do you despise them? Either way, Front Sight can help you get the gun training that you need to protect yourself against the violent predators out there. Ignatius Piazza wants you to know that no matter how hesitant you are to use a gun, Front Sight can get you armed and trained into confidence. Call Front Sight today and become your own success story!
