This is Hard to Believe, But it is True...
This is NOT a Front Sight April Fool's Joke...

If you Can Follow Easy Directions YOU Can Secure A Front Sight Course for Only $100.

Dear Michael Schuyler,

Every day I receive numerous pleas from people to provide a more affordable opportunity to attend a Front Sight course.

College students, retired people on fixed incomes, disabled veterans, single moms, and people with every other imaginable situation have e-mailed or written me asking for a more affordable opportunity to attend a course with Front Sight.

Well, if you can follow some very simple directions as outlined below, you can secure a certificate to attend a Two Day Defensive Handgun Course for ONLY $100 and use the certificate at ANY time in the future.

This is the same Two Day Defensive Handgun Course that normally costs $1,000, but I will make it available to you through this very limited, Special Course Certificate Offer for only $100.

That's right! Only $100 but you must follow the very simple directions to the letter.

Here is how it works:

1. The Certificate is good for you to attend Front Sight's Two Day Defensive Handgun Course at any time in the future and has No Expiration Date.

2. The Certificate is transferable, but not redeemable for cash.

3. Simply mail a personal check or money order in the amount of $100 made payable to Front Sight along with a Self Addressed, Stamped Return Envelope. Mail your check to:

P.O. Box 2619
Aptos, CA 95001

4. The deadline for postmark of your envelope is April, 20 2009. This means you must drop the check in the mail to us before 5:00pm April 20, 2009.

5. Upon receipt, we will mail you back, in the Self Addressed Stamped Envelope you provide, a special Front Sight Course Certificate good to attend a Two Day Defensive Handgun Course at any time in the future with no expiration date. If you decide at any time in the future you cannot use it, the Certificate is fully transferable.

Again, it's very simple. Just follow the directions above.

Take advantage of the offer to get a $1,000 Two Day Defensive Handgun Course that you can attend at any time in the future for ONLY $100.

Why am I doing this? As I said above, I receive requests every day from people looking for a more affordable way to get Front Sight's world class training. I woke up this morning and decided to provide you this offer. I'll sleep better knowing I am doing what I can to help.

In order to be able to offer a $1,000 course for only $100 you have to help me by following the directions above to the letter and complying with the rules below so we are not inundated with unnecessary calls and e-mails.

Please understand that I cannot give our courses away to help people and then also have to spend thousands of dollars in time and logistics answering phone and e-mail questions that are already answered below.

PLEASE read and comply with my requests here:

PLEASE read all of these Frequently Asked Questions below and Do Not call or e-mail me or my office about this offer UNLESS you have read everything, visited our website at www.frontsight.com read it thoroughly and STILL have a question that was not answered.

Q. What's the catch?
A. There is no catch. I receive requests from people every day who need and want to attend Front Sight but cannot afford $1,000 for a Two Day Course so here is a chance for ANYBODY to get a level or training that exceed law enforcement and military standards without any boot camp mentality or drill instructors attitudes for only $100.

I got a $500 certificate for their 4-day I haven't used yet--thinking about getting this one for my son. Course you gotta fly to Vegas, rent a car, pay for hotel & meals, yadda yadda, but I've never heard anything bad about their courses. Ask LLE. He took the 4-day and wrote about the experience here a few months ago.

I would suggest, however, that if you have the time to attend the four day, that would make optimum use of your efforts and expense to get there.
The first two days are excellent, and you would never forget what you learned. But the next two days are even better. In addition to the repetition, and honing of your skills, you get challenged by the low light/ night shooting techniques AND the Shooting House experience.

How did you obtain the $500 ticket?---Is that the one that says good only for your first visit??

From KY it would cost you a $1000 or more to get out there and get a room just for the class. Be a great deal if they where around Tn. or AR. or even OK. for us that live East of the Mississippi River.

You can book a round trip flight from Lexington, KY to Vegas for $280 right now. Car rental and hotel would be the same no matter how far you flew. Same trip from Seattle is about $200, so yeah, you can get there $80 cheaper from the west.

So here's the deal. You are going to pay about $750 or so for flight, meals, car, hotel no matter what you do. Now, add the $1000 normal cost for the course or $100, so $1750 or $850.

Deal, or no Deal?

Take door #1.... Besides Vegas is hurting. Check the Hotel Deals, you will probably find something soon for $100 or less. The coupon is good forever.

Thanks, but I don't fly and the closes major airport to me is about 125 miles away one way. Nashville, TN. is the closes airport to me.

but maybe someone else on the East Coast would like to take advantage of it. My point was not that a particular individual wanted or didn't want to take advantage of this, but to point out that it is simply not true that it is vastly more expensive for someone who happens to live there to take advantage of it.

I just got a call from them today with Piazza's recording talking about how I should be getting an offer in the mail to purchase foreclosed life meberships for "pennies on the dollar". I thought you had to pay for it before you took the classes, so a foreclosed membership seems odd, but obviously I don't know.

so I suppose it could happen, but it does seem odd that so many 'foreclosed' memberships are suddenly available.
