The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, The Final Chapter

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the awesome gun training school in Pahrump, Nevada (just about an hour outside of Las Vegas) is more than just a gun training school. It is more than just a place where you can learn how to be a great shooter. Front Sight is a place where regular people can go and change their lives. When it comes to gun training and learning how to use a gun for self defense, people do not have to be rich or have tons of experience in shooting to succeed at Front Sight. Heck, they will be perfectly fine with NO TRAINING WHATSOEVER because Front Sight will provide all of the gun training that anyone could need.

Dr. Ignatius Piazza and his team of highly trained gun training instructors teach not only how to use a gun for self defense, but how to avoid using a gun in the first place. They train students to adequately defend themselves without the use of a weapon, only using a gun as an absolute necessity. Students of Front Sight will also be mentally prepared for the effects of using a gun: physically and mentally. At Front Sight, I learned what it means to be in the Combat Mindset. I learned how to decide what my limits are and what to do before and after reaching them. Ignatius Piazza and the Front Sight instructors taught me taught me that my life will change if I need to use a gun for self defense, what to expect and how to handle each situation. Their guidance goes way beyond that of a normal gun training school. Front Sight doesn’t just teach you about shooting. Front Sight teaches you about life.

I learned the Color Code of Mental Awareness from Ignatius Piazza’s gun training program. I learned how to be aware… always… no matter where I am or what I am doing. Being fully aware of your surroundings will protect you because you will be more able to know when a threat is going to occur. Now, when I walk to my car or down the street, I know how to be aware of what is going on around me, such as where people are standing in the parking lot and what they are doing. Being attacked by someone you see coming is a lot different than being attacked when you have no idea what is going on. The more aware you are, the more reaction time you have. The more reaction time you have, the greater your chance of escape. Front Sight teaches you that true self defense goes beyond the barrel of a gun.

Most of all, though, was what happened to my confidence level during my stay at Front Sight. Learning that I can protect myself (and learning that I can protect myself from someone more than twice my size), learning a skill that can save lives (and it’s a skill that is pretty awesome at the same time), and learning that I don’t have to live my life scared or in a paranoid manner… these things all raised my confidence level in myself as a person. I know I no longer have to be afraid of walking to my car at night or living alone. I know that I will be able to protect my kids when I have a family. I know that no one can have power over me that I cannot overcome… Front Sight doesn’t just offer great gun training. Front Sight offered me a better life. And I took it. What about you?
