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.

How Being Aware Protects You: Ignatius Piazza’s Color Code of Mental Awareness

November 2nd, 2011

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.

The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, Part Three

August 31st, 2011

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.

Great Gun Training Can Be Found Right Here!

April 15th, 2010

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.

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.
