Front Sight: How to Use a Gun… And How Not To

March 10th, 2011

There are so many people out there who are apprehensive about gun training. They do not want to own a gun, think that guns should be illegal and/or hate the idea of them in general. However, no matter how anti gun you may be, the fact remains that a gun can be a superior tool of self defense in a number of situations. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute can give you the gun training that you need to stay safe, even if you totally despise weapons.

I hate the idea of robbing a bank. But as much as I hate it and even though robbing a bank is illegal, bank robberies still happen. It is a gross thing to rape someone and I am thoroughly against it. That, too, is illegal. Yet, rapes still occur. Think of all the things that are currently illegal that people still do. Kidnapping, doing drugs, turning on red while ignoring the “No Turn On Red” sign… they all break the law, but we see them happen every day. If guns were illegal, do we really think that bad guys would stop using them? No… the innocent, law abiding citizens would get rid of their guns, leaving them more vulnerable and prone to attack because the bad guys would still have guns. What we need to do is secure ourselves good gun training, so we know how to safely use a gun, instead of just shying away from them in general.

You may not be comfortable with using a gun. But did you know that there is gun training available at Front Sight that will teach you how to not use a gun? This means two things. One, the gun training instructors at Front Sight will teach you the correct way to use a gun, and the wrong way to use it, so there is no question in your mind how to safely handle a gun. They show you what not to do, as well as exactly what to do, so your gun handling techniques can develop into flawless perfection.

The second thing it means is that the gun training instructors at Front Sight actually train you in how to NOT use a gun… meaning how to get out of using a gun and how to avoid using a gun. Founder and director of Front Sight, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, knows that guns offer an incredible sense of self defense, but they are not the only way out of a tricky situation. The gun training courses at Front Sight challenge your mind into deciding when is the right time for you to warn your attacker that you have a gun and will use it, and when is the right time to actually shoot, verses when is the right time to exit the situation in another manner, without presenting your weapon. Ignatius Piazza wants you to know that just because you HAVE a gun, doesn’t mean you have to USE it. It is only there for a last resort, to use in a situation that you cannot escape otherwise. Front Sight will train you heavily on this, because gun safety is their number one priority.
