    Front Sight Training Institute

    From Nevada Carry:

    This past weekend I took the 2-Day Defensive Handgun course at Front Sight. I must say that was one of the best decisions I've made. The training was great. I'll be going into much more detail in a review I'm working on. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of the week.

    Since I had already enrolled in a 4 Day Defensive Handgun class as well I decided to wait and do the review until after. Well I just got back and I'm glad I waited. Although the 2 Day class was fantastic, the 4 Day class was even better. It included presenting and firing from concealment, night shoots, clearing rooms, and more. Stay tuned for a review!
    Well I've finished the review. I'm still waiting for someone else to proofread it before linking it on the front page.

    I snagged one of their free course certificates in exchange for posting links to their site ( http://www.frontsight.com/1.asp )
    Looking at doing the 4-day defensive handgun, probably next spring. I'm already excited. Smiley
    You'll definitely enjoy it Joe. I'm planning out the next course I'll be going to.

    Seems like it! I canceled my Empty Hand Defense class I had scheduled at Front Sight last weekend. I think it was worth it to get this site off the ground though!

    I'm planning on making a 4-Day class soon as well.

  5. I purchased a training certificate at Frontsight as well

    I'm torn between the 4 day shotgun and the 4 day handgun. While the shotgun is the most intimidating defensive weapon and can stop fights before they even happen, I carry a Sig P239 (or one of my .45's - an XD ACP or Sig P220) on my CCW and I think I'm going to go for pistol course. I've read John Farnam's Defensive Rifle & Shotgun book (excellent!) and am halfway through his Defensive handgun book and I'm still not sure which course I should choose. Any suggestions?

    In my opinion, if you carry a pistol everyday and haven't had any training with it then go for the pistol course. I really want to take the shotgun course as well but decided I wanted to do the pistol courses first since that is what I carry everyday. I do have a Mossberg 500 next to my bed but honestly since I've had more training with the pistol, I might have to grab that first.

    I agree with the advice to get some pistol training first. If you are carrying it on a regular basis, then you should get the skill set to use your tool properly.

  8. I agree

    I got my CCW from Joe Nizarri and Line of Fire and he did an excellent job both in the class and on the range, but you're right, I have my pistol with me most of the time and the shotgun (obviously) only when at home. Good thing about a shotgun for home defense is the minimal risk of penetration into a neighbors house (unless you use a slug). But I believe that if any gun will ever save the life of my family or I, it would be my XD .45 ACP. I just put the TLR-1 LED light from Streamlight on it and it's excellent. Thanks for the input.

    I hear excellent things about Joe and his classes. I plan on taking training from him at some point in the near future.

    I just picked up a TLR-1 as well. A very handy addition to the house gun!

    While at Front Sight what was the instructor to student ratio?

    My 4Day handgun class was roughly 30-40 people with 4-6 instructors at one time. And then my 2Day Skill builder was more like 20 people with 3-4 instructors.
