Front Sight Mail Bag: Family Members Competency and Confidence with Guns Improves
March 9th, 2012
I’m a National Guard maintenance warrant officer with over 25 years of military training; I’ve been on a plethora of United States Army ranges, along with German Army, and Australian Army ranges and none were as professionally ran nor as effective at ensuring a competency at arms as Front Sight’s. We trained as a family of eight in Front Sight’s 4 Day Defensive Hand Gun Course 19-22 December 2011. We ranged from young ladies who had never, or rarely, handled handguns, to a HMMWV gunner who deployed in Iraq, to a 75 year-old life-time hunter and gun enthusiast. It was exciting (and reassuring) to see the competency and confidence levels of each of my family members rise each day until on the last day a comfort of arms was truly displayed by all; 2 of us were recognized as Distinguish Graduates, attesting to Front Sight’s effective training methodology. And all the while everyone in the group was having a great time and would attest that this was the best vacation ever.
