Front Sight Caters to Your Learning Style

May 24th, 2012

How do you learn best? I learn best by doing, putting me in the kinesthetic learning category. Some of my friends learn by seeing, making them visual learners. Other friends learn by hearing, making them audio learners. Some people combine two or three of the learning styles to learn and retain information. I have found that the best possible way for most people to absorb the most information is to incorporate a bit of each of the three main learning styles. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the gun training school in Pahrump, Nevada, uses all three learning styles to train students, which greatly increases the learning curve. This is just one of the many reasons that Front Sight is the best gun training school around. They can cater to anyone’s personal learning style, no matter how that certain student learns best.

For audio learners, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, the founder and director of Front Sight, has put together interesting lectures to include in his gun training program. The gun training lectures include important information, such as gun safety, how to choose a gun, how to prepare for the emotional aspect of using a gun for self defense, how to handle the legal side of using a gun and many, many more topics. While audio learners get a great amount of information out of the Front Sight lectures, so do people that learn differently. I have a very short attention span when it comes to lectures. Seriously, I was the kid in class that sat with my lap top, acting like I was taking notes, but I was really on Facebook and instant messaging my friends. However, in my first gun training course at Front Sight, I was wide eyed and open eared. The Front Sight gun training lectures not only kept my interest… I actually looked forward to them. Ignatius Piazza did a phenomenal job putting together the Front Sight lectures.

For visual learners, Ignatius Piazza included gun training demonstrations in his program at Front Sight. Here, gun training instructors show students how to use a gun for self defense and how NOT to use a gun, in order to fully explain gun safety and how a gun should be properly handled. I found the demonstrations at Front Sight to be awe inspiring. They definitely helped me understand how things should and should not be done, which was reflected in my shooting. I know that I would not have gotten the results that I did without the Front Sight demonstrations.

For kinesthetic learners like me, Ignatius Piazza included tons of shooting range time, so students could really get a feel for how a gun is supposed to feel in a number of different situations. Practicing shooting in a safe and controlled environment, while using scenario based training to help students learn how to handle difficult situations, like gun malfunctions or having multiple attackers, had an intense effect on my gun training experience. I got to shoot more at Front Sight than I thought I ever would in a gun training course, which made me more and more comfortable using the gun. In turn, I became a MUCH better shooter.

Front Sight is great for many reasons, but the way the gun training curriculum is put together really sticks out. Front Sight is the best place to receive gun training, no matter how you learn best.
