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?

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.


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.
