Gun Training: When Police Attack

October 2nd, 2012

Police are supposed to serve and protect, right? These men and women are hired to take care of us as citizens, correct? They carry guns and pepper spray and batons… several weapons that should be of use to them in dangerous situations. We are brought up knowing that we can always feel safe when a police officer is around. Gun control is a widely supported idea, because the only people out there that should have guns are these guys. Right? Not so much.

What happens when these men with the guns abuse their power? If strict gun control is in place, where are we then? How can we protect ourselves? I may sound like I am being overly anxious or paranoid. However, my coworker came to work today with a scary story of something that happened yesterday pretty close to her house.

The off duty police officer, hanging out in a bar, walked up to a group of guys that were playing darts. He started talking to them about darts and then said flat out, “I am better at darts than you are.”One of the men replied, saying, “Aw, you suck at darts.” Kind of a stupid conversation, I would say, and definitely not one to lose a life over… but in this day and age, we really have to be prepared for anything.

The police officer replied with, “That’s why I’m a cop. I can do whatever I want to do.” A few more words were exchanged, but the conclusion of the story is that “whatever he wanted to do” just so happened to be pulling out his gun and shooting one of the guys three times, killing him. What would you do if you witnessed something like that? Would you have just sat and watched? Or would you have tried to take down the guy with the gun? Would you have presented your own gun in defense of the unarmed man? Wait… if gun control is active, how could you have done that?

Gun control is a bad thing. It will not help anyone. What we need to do is get adequate gun training so that we can be prepared to protect ourselves and others in dangerous situations. Dr. Ignatius Piazza, a Four Weapons Combat Master, started a gun training school in Pahrump, Nevada, called Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. Front Sight offers the world’s greatest gun training of any kind, hands down.

Now, you may be thinking that if you witnessed the above situation, no amount of gun training could have or would have helped you or the victim. This dude was a cop. He has been professionally trained to use a gun. However, you should be aware that while Ignatius Piazza’s gun training program at Front Sight is offered to normal people like you and me, it provides gun training that outshines that of law enforcement and the military. After one self defense gun training course from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight, you can have shooting skills that surpass those of many law enforcement officers in America. No other gun training school can say that.

So, let me ask you again. If you witnessed the above situation, what would you have done? I got my gun training from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight. What about you?

Gun Training to Gain Control

July 16th, 2012

Are there times in your life that you wish you had more control? It is good to sit in the driver’s seat every once in a while and actually have a say in where your life is heading, isn’t it? I would say that there are certain circumstances in life where it is better than others to be able to sit in that driver’s seat and either hit the gas or stomp the brake.

If you are more of a go-with-the-flow type of person, consider this. Standing in line at the ATM, you wait patiently for the person ahead of you to finish his transaction. When he is finished, you move forward and start your withdrawal. There is no real stress for you at this given moment; you are feeling fine with your carefree, go-with-the-flow attitude. Suddenly, you feel something touching your low back and you feel a hand clasp over your mouth. Still want to go with the flow? Or do you wish you had more control now? Chances are, this is one of those situations where it would be good to be able to be in charge and call the shots, securing your safety. However, you’ve always been super easygoing and never thought you’d need to prepare to take charge, so how do you practice self defense?

Knowing how to handle life threatening situations in a take charge manner does not mean you can’t be easy going in other areas of your life. In fact, knowing how to protect yourself and offer family protection in dangerous situations may help you be MORE carefree and easygoing because you won’t have to stress or worry about scary things happening. Whether you want to have more control over every day situations or whether you want to stay as easygoing as possible, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the gun training school in Pahrump, Nevada, can help you. Founder and director, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, has tailored the gun training courses and self defense training courses at Front Sight to help you be more aware of your surroundings, more aware of yourself and more in control of situations at hand.

If you have ever been in a situation where self defense was needed, you know how important it is to be able to stay composed and in control. All of Front Sight’s gun training courses will take you through real life scenarios to best train you how to remain calm and take threats and threatening actions out of the hands of the bad guys and into your own. Ignatius Piazza will give you the gun training that you need to be confident, comfortable and proficient in gun handling and self defense. After attending a gun training course or self defense training course from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, you will be much more prepared to be able to take control and stop attacks of all kinds. You will soon notice that no other gun training school can prepare you like Front Sight can

Does Gun Control Mean Less Murder?

November 25th, 2011

In South Africa, it is severely difficult to obtain a gun. Applicants that would like to own a gun need to pass a competency test, a background check, an inspection of their homes and the police need to license the weapon, among other things that factor into the application process. The waiting period is usually longer than two years, and many people are denied arbitrarily. The BGOASA (an association of gun-owners in South Africa) was disappointed to report that about 2% of applicants were successful in obtaining a firearms. In addition, in three years (2006-2009) the police of South Africa reported a loss of 8,286 firearms, many of which were stolen.

Austria has much less strict gun control laws. There are some guns that the government restricts, but for the most part, citizens can get a gun somewhat easily. There are guns that require permission through licensing and some guns that require registration, while there are some guns that do not require registration at all. Most guns can be obtained by any citizen that is 18 years of age or older.

Which country do you think has a lower murder rate?

South Africa, with its very strict gun control laws, has been reported as one of the countries with the highest murder rates in the world, while Austria has been reported as one of the lowest murder rates.

Interesting.

It just goes to show that gun control does not equal less murder.

Founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, is a believer in this concept. Gun control is not going to help us. In the case of South Africa, the criminals that wanted guns stole them from the police. Where does that leave us law abiding citizens if the criminals have the guns and we do not? “Great… the guy that just broke into my house and is holding my wife has a gun. And I have this handy dandy bat that I can swing at him from across the room while he shoots me?”

Our Founding Fathers seemed to have it in their minds that owning a gun for self defense was important enough to list it as the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. We, as Americans, have a duty to uphold that right by not taking advantage of the situation, and by being SMART and SAFE about it. If we choose to practice our Second Amendment Right to keep and bear arms, we owe it to ourselves, our loved ones and our Founding Fathers to know how to safely handle that firearm. Ignatius Piazza, a Four Weapons Combat Master, can help us be smart and safe about gun ownership by giving us the best gun training money can buy at his gun training school, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

Guns can be efficient tools of self defense… if they are handled properly and used correctly. Please do not choose to own a gun just because it is a “right.” As Uncle Ben so famously stated, “With great power comes great responsibility.” If you want to own a gun, please get gun training and learn how to use that gun safely. Come to Front Sight and secure yourself that gun training.

The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, Part Ten

September 26th, 2011

When I shot the bad guys that were holding my hostage during the hostage situations scenario at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, I hit the bad guys dead on. Literally, I could not see my bullet hole at first because the front sight of my gun was blocking my view. How in the world did I accomplish this? ESPECIALLY when, on the first day of my first self defense gun training course at Front Sight, I barely ever even hit my target at all? I had classified myself as the worst shooter in the world (or at least one of them) and now I was being 100% accurate? What? HOW did this happen?

There is this thing that about ninety five percent of the gun using population do, and it is a mistake that can critically affect the accuracy of shooting. My gun training at Front Sight from Four Weapons Combat Master Dr. Ignatius Piazza and his team of professional gun training instructors taught me how to recognize it, why we do it AND how to fix it.

In fact, my gun training at Front Sight was so good, that I actually learned how to recognize when people do this without even seeing them shoot. That’s right… I can now just look at the placement of someone’s bullets and know if they are doing this… all because of my gun training from Ignatius Piazza’s gun training instructors at Front Sight.

On the first day of my gun training at Front Sight, I did not understand that concept of “mashing the trigger” or a “surprise break.” I had no idea what it meant when someone said those things. But over the next couple days, my Front Sight gun training instructors taught me what those words meant and how much it could actually affect my shooting. When I first got that real surprise break, I was amazed at the accuracy of my shot. I almost thought it was an accident… and then I did it again. And again. And again.

The Front Sight gun training instructors do not teach you how to be a “good” shooter. They teach you how to be a PERFECT shooter. The change in my shooting (in just four days) is mind boggling and almost unbelievable. I don’t know if I would have actually believed it could happen to me until I saw it for myself. Let it be known that Front Sight Firearms Training Institute is the best fun training school in the whole world. If Dr. Ignatius Piazza and his gun training instructors at Front Sight can make ME able to shoot as well as I did on my last day of my first self defense gun training course, they can help you.

BUT… Front Sight does more than just turn regular people into people that can shoot better than professional shooters like police officers. It changed my whole outlook on life and feelings about myself. Come with me, one more time, into The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, The Final Chapter, and see why Front Sight is so much more than just a gun training school.

Gun Control v. Gun Training: Is Gun Control Really Safer?

August 16th, 2011

Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, is a firm believer in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Many people across America have conflicting views on this Amendment. Some love it. Some hate it. Some think it is okay but just not for them. Some are indifferent. Some are afraid of it. Some think it should go away and some think it should stay. I wonder why people want to do away with the Second Amendment. Why would we want to take away such a strong tool of self defense? Why would we want to put ourselves at risk?

Sure, at face value, the Pro Gun Control argument sounds awesome. “Getting rid of guns will reduce crime and keep us safer.” Who doesn’t want to be safer? I know I would love to live in a place with zero crime and not have to worry about walking down the street late at night, clutching my purse against me and looking over my shoulder to make sure I am not being followed. That would be great! But is getting rid of guns really going to get me to that place? If it can, I would really like to see how.

“If guns are outlawed, there won’t be any risk of getting shot, because people will not own them.” Can the owners of this argument please explain to me why I have seen people waste away in front of me due to drugs? I cannot understand how that happened. I also do not understand why parents worry about their children getting wrapped up in drug use. Drugs are illegal. People “shouldn’t” be about to get a hold of them if they are illegal… much like guns, right?

I don’t know about you, but I refuse to be naïve and believe that these gun control advocates have the right idea. Bad guys are going to break the law. If guns are outlawed, why would that stop them from getting a hold of them? All it will do is put us at risk, because our attackers will have guns and we will have something less powerful or effective.

Yes, guns in untrained hands are dangerous. But guns in well trained hands provide a great avenue for self defense and family protection. What we should be focusing on is getting people gun training instead of taking away a means of protection. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Pahrump, Nevada, offers the greatest gun training in the world and can be affordable for almost every budget. Ignatius Piazza has worked hard to offer the best quality gun training and to offer it to people of every income level. Lots of gun training is expensive. Front Sight makes it possible for people with normal jobs (like myself) to get better gun training than even the most expensive places out there.

The Second Amendment grants us the right to bear arms… but along with that right comes responsibility. Front Sight will help you make the responsible decision of getting gun training and getting your family trained. Let’s do our part to keep America safe. Let’s get gun training and really know how to use a gun for self defense, instead of just owning one because we can.
