“There are a lot of great training schools and instructors out there,” Caleb writes at gunnuts.net. “Long time readers of the blog know that I’ve never included Front Sight in that list, and there are good reasons for a lot of that. If Front Sight was just a training school using obsolete techniques, that would be one thing. But there are many, many problems with Front Sight that extend beyond just their training.” Specifically, Caleb slates the school’s . . .
slavish adherence to the Weaver stance, their prices ($1k for a two-day handgun course), lousy instruction and owner Dr. Ignatius Piazza’s affiliation with Scientology. Those are Caleb’s 4 reasons I’ll never go to Front Sight.
Now a lot of readers reckon The People of the Gun should present a united front in the face of those who would disarm civilians to pursue their utopian (dystopian) goals. But I love gun rights guys and gals’ no-holds-barred devotion to telling it like it is. As you might expect from a man who runs a website called The Truth About Guns.
So I’m more than OK with “outing” lousy guns, gun makers, gun dealers, gun rights advocates and firearms training facilities. But is Caleb right? Those of you who’ve been to Front Sight please sign in and sound off. Meanwhile, we’ve reached out to Front Sight for a reply. Watch this space.
