Pahrump, Nevada, November 12, 2008: I am on the road, ready to break camp, after completing the Front Sight[FS] Four Day Defensive Handgun Course.
I know many of you have looked at the FS website, and may have thought it reflects a lot of BS and hype. THIS`IS NOT A COMMERCIAL FOR FS, but I must tell anyone who is interested that in my opinion, after completing the 4 day course mentioned above, there is almost No BS or hype. I say "almost" only because much of the testimonial material is highly complimentary without some critique on how something so excellent can actually be IMPROVED.

As I pull my weary old dude bones out of bed to begin the long trek home, I will say this, even if it pisses off some of our community's citizens: I have been shooting and handling guns of every description, since my Red Ryder at about age 7 or 8 years old. I thought I knew a lot, including effective defense and tactics. Forget it folks....I knew hardly anything, and I am certain from talks with my fellow class members, most of you are in the same boat. As testimony to the validity of that opinion, were the almost astounding number of LEO's in attendence. It was a record week--560 students attended, and more than half that total came for the 4 day defensive handgun course.

In closing this Part 1 of the report, I tell you this: I am far more confident than I have ever been about situation assesment, decision making, and my total skill at arms. Remarkably, my wife who liked handgun shooting, but was somewhat afraid of guns and gun handling, came out of that course certain, but not overconfident, that she now has real skill at arms, and knows how/what to practice and constantly improve.

More.....later.

Was this expensive?

I really want a civilain course. I had combat arms in the military but it was more center of mass instruction. The CCL course was a joke. Whats the website?

Sorry for

the delay in answering. You cannot go wrong with any of their courses, but the four day defensive hand gun course is the best for those of us who carry concealed.

www.frontsight.com should get you there. Yes, the courses are expensive, but you need to keep reading on the website, for "specials" Dr. Piazza runs from time to time.
