Protect Yourself Now - Not Tomorrow

Gun Training

The robber's hand holds a pistol pointed directly at your chest.

The rapist's fingers are clenching tighter and tighter around your wrist.

A man walks toward your wife. You see the glimmer of the blade behind his back.

Do you have time to stop and think about how to react? In threatening situations - especially life threatening situations - you have only moments to respond. Standing in shock for even five seconds can possibly cost you your life. Or your loved one's life. Do you want to take that risk?

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute offers courses in gun training, as well as other forms of self defense training. Dr. Ignatius Piazza knows that when it comes to life threatening situations, the seconds are crucial. Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight, started the institute shortly after he came to these realizations himself. He was at home one night in 1988 when he heard the shots. A drive-by shooting was happening in his neighborhood. He owned guns, yes, and knew how to use them. But he realized he had never been taught the skills to use the guns in a moment where he would have to defend his own life or his family members' lives. He became engrossed in firearms training because he wanted to be as highly trained as possible. After intense training for years, in April of 1996, Dr. Piazza founded Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. His goal was to give people a positive outlook on guns and to train them to be experts in using them.

Mitch Gilbert, a Retail Supervisor and student of Front Sight said, "I had been visiting the Front Sight web site for several years. After further local and internet inquiries, I attended a two day defensive hand gun course, where I received the most professional, patient and understanding instruction ever. The instructors are top notch. Now my competence, confidence and awareness have increased by at least 100%. I am proud to say I am now A First Family Member."

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute offers courses such as handgun training, shotgun training, rifle training, and automatic weapons training. (Select Fire M16 and an Uzi Submachine Gun), but it also offers courses in non firearms self defense training. There is an edged weapons training course to help you defend yourself against those attackers carrying knifes instead of guns. There is a rope, rappelling, and climbing training course so that your family can feel safe in outdoor environments. Defensive driving training allows students to learn how to handle their vehicles in unsafe driving conditions. Empty handed self defense training courses include martial arts training, child safety training and youth safety training. As if these courses did not already supply the highest standard of training possible, Dr. Piazza's institution also offers private training. In private training sessions, you, the student, tell your instructor your goals and the instructor makes certain that you attain them.

Front Sight wants you to be able to handle any situation now. Not tomorrow, not ten minutes from now, but now, before it is too late
