    Estimating 8 hours a day x 4 days x $25/hr = $800

    I took advantage of one their specials. For $900 I received 3 training certificates (They are only good for first timers to Front Sight.) http://frontsight.com/newsletter/htm...st-course.html

    and the certificates cover one course cost per person for any one of the following:

    Two Day Defensive Handgun
    Two Day Tactical Shotgun
    Two Day Practical Rifle
    Two Day Uzi Submachine Gun
    Two Day Select-Fire M16 Four Day Defensive Handgun
    Four Day Tactical Shotgun
    Four Day Practical Rifle
    Four Day Uzi Submachine Gun
    Four Day Select-Fire M16

    I took advantage of one of their offers for life membership. I got myself a life membership, allowing me to take any firearm course as many times as I like for life, and a Glock pistol, and some tactical gear, all for $2000. So the cost for courses for me is not an issue. The only cost is getting there.

    Yeah, they've had some pretty good membership deals lately, but I bought the certificates back in Nov. so I figured I'd just go check them out first. It's a thousand miles each way for me. I wish they'd get a RV site set up out there. it would cut out the hour drive every day. I know they have some pretty big plans for the facillity. and in case you were wondering about firearm policy in Clark County (Las Vegas) I received the following PDF file from Front Sight:

    It's only a 20 minute drive from the Saddle West in Pahrump. They have a RV park and it cost me $25 a night in January. It's your basic casino style RV Park (a.k.a. glorified parking lot) but there is a laundry room and the rest rooms and showers were kept very clean. Also, I've noticed people boondocking at the large flat graded area just outside the Frontsight entrance. I've seen motorhomes, travel trailers, pop-ups and even tents there. I might even park there next time to offset the price of fuel.

  6. Front Sight Next Week 5/16/08

    I'll be taking the four day handgun course next week. All the hotel rooms in Pahrump were already taken so I will be staying at the Silverton Casino in Las Vegas. If anyone else is doing the same drop me a PM and maybe we can carpool.

  7. As soon as I can get conformation from my employer on the vacation days I have requested I'll be sending my application off to Front Sight for their 4 Day Defensive Handgun Course. I hope to go toward the end of the year so want to get the room reservation set as soon as I can in Pahrump.

    So for you guys that have already gone, is there a gun cleaning area at Front Site or do you have to clean your weapons in your room?

    If there was one I never saw it. They are VERY touchy about the unholstering of a weapon for any reason, unless you are told to do so. My wife and I used Glocks, so I didn't do any cleaning until the course was over and I was in my motel room.

    Also, be ready for some long days. I estimated 8 hr days before I went. I think it was closer to 10 or 12.

    Oh and another thing. In case you have an RV there is plenty of RV parking in Pahrump and there is a place just outside of F.S., it's free there, but there isn't anything but a dirt lot, no restrooms or water.

    When I took my course last year, they did not allow us to clean our guns there. They just told me that the gun could handle not being cleaned for a few days. They also urged us not to clean guns in our hotel rooms, as there have been incidents at some hotels of guns discharging. Then the hotels want to blame Front Sight.

    Enjoy your class! Let us know how you made out!
