    WOW!!! I have never been to a class where it was less than 4 or 5 to one. Thats a lot of people per instructor.

    I will find a different place to spend my money.

    It wasn't that bad. They put everyone together with another student to use the student/coach method and then the instructors worked with the relay that was on the line. So when I say 30-40 it would be only 15-20 people on the line with the instructors. The coaches stand behind helping out. It seemed to be a good system to be and I didn't feel like I was neglected. I actually felt like I got really good personal instruction from them.

    Costs

    I checked on the costs of the classes and they seem pretty high. Why wouldn't I want to hire the instructor at my club for $25/hr?

    I recently signed up with the GOA for a life membership and received a free 2 day training cert for Front Sight. I'm looking forward to taking a class in the next year or two.

    There is a $50 background check fee. As for ammo, you will do better by bringing your own ammo, that's what I do. There are some hotels you can stay that are closer than Vegas for probably $30-50 a night or so. And then you have your food expenses.

    I personally thought the quality was top notch and I had a dramtic improvement in confidence and skills since going.

    Order your ammo on the internet and have it shipped to Front Site. They are set up for doing that.
    The course should not be all that physically demanding, but the days are long.
    Staying in Phraump is probably the best, Front site is about 20 minutes from there.

    You can search various auction sites and they will have 2day/4day Front Sight certificates.

    Typical certificate allows you to take a 4 day pistol, rifle or shotgun course or allows you & a friend to take a 2 day pistol, rifle or shotgun course for free.

    Average price for a certificate on eBay is around $100.

    SPC & QUIET,I thank you and all for the courtesy of a reply,good info,i get ammo mans e-mail on ammo and that would set up nice w/sending to front site,as their price includes shipping in U.S.A.some bkgrnd on myself,72 yrs of age,fairly good health,retired,Fla carry permit,in the process of selling house in northern wisc.& moving to Fla.have been reloading some 45 yrs.,and at one time had a FFL liscense for selling my handloaded ammo,custom defense stuff( one shot in 357S&W, 3 rounds like miniture tuna cans 60 gr each hit a target at 15 yrds w/a 12-18in spread,did that for awhile in 44 rem mag 357 & was working on 9mm(i no longer sell to public or private),did a lot of pistol shooting over the yrs and ended up w/some $5,000 worth of equipment and even poured my own bullets,but last time on the range down there shocked myself on how much skills lost so I felt the need for frontsites course,and i have a number of certificates earned thru web site refferal to front site,i carry when in Fla.i get their e-mails all the time and wanted an idea on the quality from a student of how close their claims to the truth,once again thanks,Scott
