Front Sight Mail Bag: Response to Free Gun Training Report #2

August 3rd, 2011  

Dr. Piazza,

Thank you for sending me the first two reports.

Back in the early 80s, I received law enforcement handgun, shotgun and baton training as a reserve deputy. While we all understood that the training we received in this program was much less than what the regular deputies received, I was always of the opinion that it was (at least) better than what the average enthusiast was learning. After 4 years of active duty, I thought I had learned at least enough to stay ahead of the public – even after all these years. But in only your second report you explain why so many of my shots went high, and explained it in a way that I didn’t even need to hold a weapon in my hand to visualize how true it was. The instructors, the armorer, the rank and file supervisors – none of them even hinted at this as a potential problem. Had I known this back then, I would have had a much easier time qualifying every quarter. But, as you said, this just never came up.

I will be taking my first course at Front Sight over the Memorial Day weekend and look forward to that, and the rest of these reports. Hard to imagine the things that I thought I knew that will be presented to me for the first time. I’m very much looking forward to spending 4 days with your instructors on the range.
