Front Sight: Can You Defend Yourself If You Aren’t Physically Strong?

May 25th, 2012

What do you do to keep yourself safe? Some people work out virtually non stop and make sure to have strong muscles and high endurance. Others pay thousands of dollars on various self defense training courses. Others just hope that nothing threatening will ever happen to them and take their chances. I attend gun training courses at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute is ranked the number one gun training school in the world. Not only does Front Sight offer gun training that is rivaled by no other, founder and director, Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza also offers other forms of affordable self defense training. Ignatius Piazza offers self defense training such as edged weapons training, empty hands self defense training, youth safety training and child safety training, to name a few.

I have a First Family Lifetime Membership at Front Sight, which allows me to take any of the courses offered as many times as I want for the rest of my life at no additional cost. That means that I am getting the best gun training and self defense training that I can possibly get, AND I don’t have to pay for it ever again! That sounds a bit better than paying thousands of dollars for various self defense training courses, doesn’t it?

One of the things that Ignatius Piazza teaches in his gun training and self defense training courses at Front Sight is that size, physical strength and age do not have to be limiting factors in your safety. After attending one of Ignatius Piazza’s courses at Front Sight, you will have the ability to protect yourself from someone that is twice your size and strength or more. Yes, taking good physical care of yourself if helpful and healthy, but you can still protect yourself without it. That sounds a bit better than working out non stop, right?

As much as we hope that we are one of the lucky ones and nothing threatening will ever happen to us, our logical minds know that this is just too risky. We need to be prepared to handle threatening situations. If we happen to be lucky and never get threatened, then great. We were prepared anyway. If we don’t prepare ourselves and something threatening happens, where would we be? Ignatius Piazza’s gun training courses at Front Sight prepare students for all different kinds of threatening situations, so that they will be prepared for as many things as possible. I have never seen a gun training program or self defense training program that better prepares students than Front Sight. Sounds much better than always being worried that something threatening might happen or just being aloof to the world, yes?

All in all, when you decide that it is time to learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones, Front Sight is definitely the place to go. Front Sight offers affordable, practical and effective self defense training and gun training courses that will prepare you for anything

Front Sight and the Fifty Percent Rule

January 2nd, 2012

In regards to gun training, you may have heard of the fifty percent rule. In a situation where self defense or family protection is needed, you will only be about fifty percent as accurate as your best day on the shooting range. Basically, that means you are going to be a bit slower and your bullets are going to hit further away from your exact target. If, on your best day, you hit about four inches away from your target, adjust that by fifty percent. Now you are going to be about six inches away. When it comes to small amounts like that, the extra two inches doesn’t really seem like that big of a deal. But what if the bad guy has a gun to your sister’s head and is holding her up as a human shield? If you miss his head, you may have just hit your sister. Are you okay with that?

In stressful and life threatening situations, your brain reacts differently than in calm and controlled situations. While shooting targets at the shooting range, you have all the time in the world. When someone has a gun to your sister’s head, the seconds count. You need to be able to remain calm and keep your cool in these situations, so that your self defense mechanism will be more accurate, quicker, smoother and thus, more effective.

Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute wants to give you the training you need to be able to keep your mind and hand steady, even in these horrifying situations. The gun training courses at Front Sight concentrate on gun safety, and teach how to use a gun for self defense and family protection in actual life threatening situations. Throughout your gun training course, you will hear interesting lectures, watch entertaining shooting demonstrations and practice hands on tactical gun training, performing drills and exercises repetitively until they are second nature to you. This repetition may sound boring, but the gun training instructors at Front Sight keep things exciting and fun, so the class never drags or feels stale. You will interact with other people and will get the chance to participate in scenario based training. You will learn what it feels like to be in a threatening situation, so if you should ever have to endure one for real, your response will come more naturally, since you have technically already been there and done that.

The idea of Ignatius Piazza’s dream for Front Sight is not to make you a good shooter. The idea is to make you a perfect shooter, so that the fifty percent rule need not affect you too much. If you are constantly hitting your target spot on, or even a couple centimeters away, even if you include that fifty percent decrease in accuracy, you are still doing pretty well when it comes to accuracy. Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight will train you to be the best shooter you can be, guaranteed.

College Kids Need Gun Training

December 22nd, 2011

For many people, it is back to school time. As a new semester begins, I am sure there are a lot of parents who are bidding their college kids adieu and sending them off to the dormitories. As a parent, have you ever thought about the safety of your children? No doubt that answer is yes. But now that they are older and able to watch after themselves, do you feel comfortable letting them live on their own in a college dorm, roaming around campus or parking lots late at night, attending those famous college parties or not checking in with you every night?

They may always be your babies, but the truth is, your kids are getting older. While we wish we could be there to protect them every day of their lives, every minute of the day, we just can’t. However, even without being there, we still CAN protect them every minute of every day for the rest of their lives. I am talking about giving them the gift of self defense.

Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Pahrump, Nevada, wants to give you peace of mind by providing the world’s best quality gun training, knife training and self defense training of any kind to your college age kids.

My kid is going to be on campus all day and in the dorms all night… why does she need gun training? Like it or not, college campuses can be dangerous places. Just because knives and guns are not permitted does not mean they are not there. Bad guys do not follow the rules. There have been countless stories of students getting injured or killed because someone brought a knife or a gun on campus. Even if your child does not choose to carry a weapon, he or she should know HOW to use a gun, how to use a knife and how to use empty hands self defense techniques. Front Sight will teach students not only how to use a gun or knife safely and effectively, but also how to disarm an attacker. This will give them a much greater chance of staying safe if someone were to approach them in a threatening manner.

When you come to the conclusion that your child should get some gun training, you will likely want to take them to the best gun training school possible. And guess what? It just so happens that Front Sight is ranked the number one gun training school in the world. Founder and director of Front Sight, Ignatius Piazza has worked tirelessly to make sure that students get the best possible gun training education in a short amount of time. His gun training program will change your kids’ lives… and it will change yours, as well. In just a few days, your college student can have gun handling skills that exceed those of ninety nine percent of the gun owning population. Doesn’t that make you feel better about them being off on their own?

Gun Training: All Strength; No Weakness

December 1st, 2011

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.

Gun Training… For Your Relationship?

October 28th, 2011

If you are like most people who have ever been in a relationship, you have probably experienced, at one point or another, the familiar concept of getting “comfortable.” Now, when I say, “comfortable,” I mean something a little different than being able to be around him without makeup or being fine with her smelling you after working in the yard for a few hours. I am talking about COMFORTABLE… when you come home from work, and all you do is eat some dinner and watch some TV. Day in and day out, that’s what you do, and it is totally fine. It is comfortable… until one day, it hits you. “Man… we are BORING.”

I know I have been there. So what do you do to fix this? I know an awesome place. It could be considered out of the ordinary to suggest something like this, because many people would suggest to go out dancing or go on a hike or to the zoo or something… but I am going to suggest getting some first class gun training with your significant other at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Parhump, Nevada.

Front Sight is the perfect way to add some spice and oomph into your relationship, while building strength, trust and bringing you closer together. I will tell you why.

One, attending a gun training course from world renowned Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, is way more exciting than the rerun of I Love Lucy or Seinfeld that you have probably seen seventeen times. At Front Sight, you will learn how to safely and effectively shoot a gun for self defense, by listening to interesting presentations, watching awe inspiring demonstrations and practicing some real life, hands on tactical gun training. The presentations and demonstrations are truly amazing. It is seriously like heading out to a shooting museum… and getting to participate.

Two, when you practice your hands on tactical gun training at Front Sight, you partner up with another student. Partnering with your significant other will help build communication because you are helping each other learn. You are keeping each other safe, learning how to teach clearly and non judgmentally while listening to each other and having fun. Front Sight is a fantastic partnering experience!

Three, Front Sight will help you build trust. Ignatius Piazza and his team of firearms training instructors at Front Sight teach self defense and family protection. Don’t you think that you would be more likely to trust someone that you are confident could save your life in any dangerous situation? Forget the classic exercise of standing in front of your significant other and falling into his or her arms. At Front Sight, you get to learn how to keep each other safe and secure while feeling the power of a gun in your hands. It is pretty much the coolest trust building exercise ever created.

Attending a gun training course from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight is a great option to get out of that boring and repetitive lifestyle that many of us live. It will change things up. It will change your life. It could change your relationship. Are you ready for making that positive change?
