Front Sight’s Monday Blog: How Would YOU Perform If Awakened…
October 17th, 2010
This Monday I would like to share a letter from a Front Sight student and ask, “How would you perform if awakened in the middle of the night to the sound of an intruder alarm?”
Here is how a recent widow, whose husband made sure she was Front Sight trained before his passing, performed when she was awakened in the middle of the night…
I am a new widow (2-1/2 months), and had an incident happen this week that Front Sight prepared me to confront.
I should explain that I live at the end of a unpaved road in a very rural area just south of a National Park. There are no neighbors within hearing or eyesight.
At 1:30 a.m. on Monday night my burglar alarm went off for the first time ever. It was an unearthly noise and I was in a deep sleep.
I shouted out something and turned on the bedside lamp (as far as I know, the only thing I did wrong, as it destroyed my night vision!).
Having taken Front Sight lectures and instructions to heart, I already knew what I would do: My training took over. I remembered to chamber check and mag check my Glock I rolled out of the bed, into a corner between the bed and bed stand, where I had concealment.
From that view point, I could easily see the closed bedroom door and knew I was capable of accurate placement from that distance. I sat on the floor with my weapon at the ready and pointed at the door.
After about 5 minutes of that awful alarm noise (and my heart stopped thumping), I decided to leave the light on, because I didn’t know how long it would take to regain my night vision, and to turn the alarm off with the remote. After all, any intruder would know that someone was there and there was an alarm.
Hearing nothing, I dialed 911 and the dispatcher promised to send a deputy sheriff. I told her that I had a gun and was trained. I became very calm and was confident that I could handle the situation until he arrived.
Having thought about this possible scenario in advance, as Front Sight taught me to do, I had decided as the only occupant of the house, I would wait concealed in my bedroom until help arrived.
After 1/2 hour the deputy arrived, checked the outside of the house, and knocked on my front door. I carefully opened my bedroom door, using the proper, tactical movement techniques in case someone was hidden in the great room, and went to the front hall.
I told the deputy I was going to turn on the porch light to identify him, which I did.
Then I told him I would put my gun on the kitchen floor, and did so. I next told him I would unlock the front door and show him my hands. All went well.
The first thing he did was ask me to identify myself (who else would be standing in the door in a nightie at 2:15 a.m.?), then he went in and unloaded my weapon.
I told him that I trained at Front Sight and he was impressed. He thoroughly searched the house and found no intruder in-or-outside. We concluded that it must have been an insect or rodent on the motion detector.
The deputy said I had done everything “just right”, reloaded my Glock and left.
This was an excellent “dry practice” experience for me as well as a confidence builder.
I felt I was “consciously competent”–so much so that I rearmed the alarm and went back to sleep.
Thank you, Front Sight!

So do you think you or your spouse would perform as well under the same circumstances?
Have you ever discussed what your spouse should do, if ever awaken in the middle of the night by breaking glass or an intruder alarm?
Do you, your spouse, and family members want to have the training, composure and confidence that Dottie has?
Use her letter as a good example of what to do and good reason to get your family trained at Front Sight.

I’m extremely happy to provide this amazing, unbelievable and unprecedented offer to you because it once again proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Front Sight Organization is more than just a commercial entity in the business of firearms training. We live our stated purpose to positively change the image of gun ownership in our lifetimes by training responsible Americans to levels of firearms expertise that exceed law enforcement and military standards.

THIS offer is truly the greatest training opportunity I have ever provided and is the greatest single step to date toward positively changing the image of gun ownership in our lifetimes, because it makes Front Sight’s training available to anyone who wants it.

Now before I provide all the details of this most amazing, unbelievable and unprecedented offer in the history of the firearms training industry, please allow me to make a few important points perfectly clear:
- You only have one shot at this. I will be watching the response very closely. Because this is such an unbelievable offer I expect it will go viral throughout the firearms community and get millions of views. Those who want the very best in firearms training for themselves, their family and friends will immediately respond to take advantage of it and be very glad they did. As this happens, and the total number of fortunate individuals who act immediately matches the number of offers I have set aside, I will close out the offer by removing this link and shutting down the registration page. So do not hesitate or procrastinate because this offer can close out at any time.
- You will be asking yourself, “WHY is Dr. Piazza doing this?” I tried to explain WHY to you in the few e-mails I sent prior to this one. So once again I will tell you that Front Sight is doing this simply to make our training more accessible to you, your family and friends so we can positively change the image of gun ownership and restore the Second Amendment in our lifetimes. Get on board with us. Get yourself trained.

- You will be asking yourself “HOW can Dr. Piazza do this?” I’ve been nicknamed the “Millionaire Patriot” by the hundreds of thousands of students Front Sight has trained over the years because I have provided tens of millions of dollars in free and discounted training so that good people– responsible Americans– can have a level of skill at arms that exceeds that of our own military and law enforcement communities. I believe to my core that the armed and expertly trained citizen is the backbone of our country. I can make this offer because we have the facility to do so and each and every member of the Front Sight Organization feels the same way I do about the importance of training you and your family.

For 14 years Front Sight has operated in this manner and we have doubled every year, so we know that our goodwill toward you will come back ten fold to us.
