    Front Sight - Not sure where to Post

    Front Sight has sent an email offering their 2 day handgun course, normally $1000 for $100 with no restrictions.

    This sounds a little strange since you can purchase as many certificates as you want you could later sell them on ebay.

    Has anyone seen this offer before or attended this course?

    I have attended the 4-day handgun course. I'd rather get a certificate of off ebay and do the 4 day course instead of the 2-day. The first 2 days are basic hangun handling. Day 3-4 are a lot better.

    There are some threads about Front Sight in this forum that get a little more in depth. Some of us posted our experiences on them.

    It's a legitimate and incredible offer. I've attended the 4-day course, which is the 2-day plus two more days on carrying concealed. Shotdown is right--if you can swing the 4-day, it's an intense and unforgettable experience in many ways. But many of my friends have benefited from the 2-day as well. At $100 plus travel, you won't waste your time.

    It's legit and not a bad deal even considering e-Bay certs.
    But the 4 day class is a lot better!

    I may get one for a refresher.

    Don't you have to sit through a 'sales pitch' with those coupons?

    (I've never heard negative comments about Front Sight training.)

    I think you have to sign up for Scientology.

    No you don't. I didn't hear anything about it when I was there either.

    You don't have to sit through the sales pitch either... they even tell you when it is and you can do something else while it's being presented if you want to.

    It's interesting that the only people to say negative things about Front Sight are people who have NEVER been there.

    I have never been either but I'm not one of the people that just look for the negative. When things get a little better as far as money I plan on taking the 4-day handgun course and if I like as much as I expect I will I'll sign up for the lifetime membership before I leave.

    I have done a LOT of research on this place I from what I have seen you would be hard pressed to find a better company and training. Everyone I have talked to that has gone has loved it and usually goes back over and over.

    I took that course and it was excellent. PM me when you get ready to go and I'll send you info on where to stay and other stuff.

    Thumbs up Front Sight Firearms training

    I just completed the 4 day class this past week-end, April 3-6th. It was by far one of the most professional, well instructed classes I have ever attended. The staff are all excellent shooters and instructors, the curriculum is very thorough and the facility very well thought out and extensive.
    I will attend again, in fact as many times as I can make happen.
    No Scientology talk, I don't know where that came from, and one Marketing presentation which was fine, but not pushy with no pressure to join.
    After 4 days of training, how many schools will ensure you can place a controlled pair from concealment to the thoracic cavity from 3m in 1.8 seconds? That is just one of the items on the Shooting Skills test you take on the 4th day.
    Bottom line, if you want to improve your self defense hand gun skills, you will not go wrong attending Front Sight in Pahrump, Nevada.
    Only hits count. You can’t miss fast enough to catch up in a gunfight.
    Gun control is hitting what you aim at.
