Not Getting Gun Training: What’s Your Excuse?

October 13th, 2011

I have been researching Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the gun training school just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, for years… literally. I think the first time I stumbled across Front Sight was summer of 2008. Since then, I have not stopped, and I am always impressed with what I find. I love reading testimonials from other students of Front Sight and learning how founder and director, Dr. Ignatius Piazza changed their lives. I enjoy reading about the special gun training courses, the awesome deals that Ignatius Piazza conjures up and seeing his blog every week. I am grateful for the free Front Sight Newsletter that Ignatius Piazza writes himself, because I know I am always one of the first to know of the great things going on at Front Sight. I am impressed with Ignatius Piazza’s philanthropic heart and truly understand why he is known as the Millionaire Patriot. Learning about Ignatius Piazza’s charity giving always astounds me. I have always looked forward to learning the next thing about gun training at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

Truth be told, I had been wanting to get gun training for a long time before learning about Front Sight. I just never knew where to look. Then a friend told me about Ignatius Piazza, the Four Weapons Combat Master, and Front Sight. So I used it as my starting point and started looking around and doing research. I finally came to the decision that Front Sight was, in fact, the best place in the world to receive gun training of any kind. However, I made up excuses as to why I couldn’t attend.

Ignoring pretty much everything I had already learned about Front Sight, I still told myself that I didn’t have the money, I didn’t have the time and I was too much of a beginner to get anything out of the best gun training school in the world. (I had to ignore everything that I had previously learned about Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight, because all of my research told me that those excuses were easily handleable.) Yet I kept researching Front Sight and I finally started to become antsy and knew I just had to set my excuses aside and just do it. I lived alone, and owed it to myself to learn how to protect myself.

Of course, Ignatius Piazza blasted through each one of my excuses by offering me an unbelievable deal on my gun training (which he often does) and reminding me that his gun training courses don’t require an extensive vacation from work. My apprehension for being such a beginner was also easily dismantled by my Front Sight gun training instructors, who helped me immensely and turned me into a confident shooter in just a few days.

Long story short. My excuses did nothing but annoy me. When I finally dropped them and went out to get my gun training at Front Sight, I was so happy. Front Sight was nothing short of incredible. I know that I could still be making excuses as to why I don’t want to learn how to protect myself… but I’m not.

Now I make excuses to go to Front Sight.
