Front Sight Mail Bag: Enjoyed the Four Day Defensive Handgun Course
May 18th, 2011
Dear Dr. Piazza and Front Sight Staff,
I attended the 4-Day Defensive Handgun Course together with my son Anthony from March 14 thru 17, 2011. We were on Range 1A, with Range Master Larry Mayer.
I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed 4-day Defensive Handgun training and how impressed I am with the Front Sight organization. I grew-up on a ranch and was taught to use rifles, shotguns and handguns and hunted with my father and grandfather from the time I was just a young boy. I thought I knew a lot about handguns and shooting, but this experience taught me just how much I didn’t know. The instruction I received was first class all the way.
Every member of the staff that I had contact with was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and courteous, and all appeared genuinely interested in providing the highest quality educational experience. Larry Mayer is an outstanding instructor. He is highly skilled, and answered every question thoroughly and accurately. The course itself was highly organized, efficient, and much more detailed than I had expected. The facility is first class and provided all that I could ask for (of course, being on range 1A is about as good as it could get.). The sign-in procedure on the first morning was quick and efficient, and I appreciated the plentiful coffee available throughout the day. The lecture hall was great and the classroom lectures were informative and were in the right balance with the range activities. In summary, I can think of no negatives of my first Front Sight experience. I rate this course at 10.
I will definitely return for many more courses, and I will bring my son and daughter as well. I will also give away some of the certificates I purchased awhile back to a number of friends so they can share in the excellent educational benefits at Front Sight.
