More Than Shooting a Gun: A More Complete Gun Training Course

September 23rd, 2011

What do you learn at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute?

You learn more than just how to shoot a gun; that is for sure.

The things taught at Front Sight far surpass the curriculum at other gun training schools. Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight, wanted to make sure that at Front Sight, you will get the best and most complete gun training you can find. Unlike other gun training schools, you will walk away from Front Sight a different person: more confident, more aware and a better shooter than you ever thought you could become, even with years and years of practice… and you will achieve this all in a few short days. It may sound too good to be true, but before your first day of gun training at Front Sight has completed, you will understand.

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute first and foremost concentrates on gun safety. Front Sight is focused on keeping you and your loved ones safe, so Ignatius Piazza’s gun training courses are incredibly safe. The gun training instructors will teach you how to handle a gun properly and how to increase your safety while holding it. During my first self defense gun training course, I felt safe one hundred percent of the time. I went to a shooting range after attending Front Sight and immediately noticed that barely anyone knew the first thing about gun safety. I was on edge for most of the time spent there, due to how these people were carrying themselves and carrying their weapons. You will be glad to know that the practices of Front Sight’s staff will make you feel comfortable, and teach you how to be safe, during and after your gun training.

During a typical day of gun training at Front Sight, you will experience many things, including hands on tactical gun training, watching shooting demonstrations and listening to gun training lectures. Wait, lectures? Before you argue and say that lectures are boring, you should know that Ignatius Piazza’s staff members will give lectures that will get you thinking and prepare your mind for what you are about to learn. You will gain a new perspective on gun training, the use of guns for self defense and the life that comes along with it. You will learn not only riveting things about guns and gun training, but you will also learn how to AVOID using a gun in the first place. Front Sight emphasizes the fact that you only want to use a gun if it is your last and only option. I found it quite enjoyable and refreshing to learn different self defense techniques that I could use before presenting my weapon. I also found it interesting to learn about the combat mindset, the emotional side effects of using a gun and how to deal with the legal aspects of having to shoot a gun.

Many people hear that Front Sight includes lectures and they immediately shy away from the gun training course. But let me tell you, I think that the lectures may have been my favorite part of my gun training at Front Sight. I was so impressed and eager to keep learning, because Ignatius Piazza expanded my idea of gun training and made me realize that gun training is more than just learning how to shoot a gun. Front Sight really is the most complete gun training I have found.
