Front Sight Mailbag: Only Shot a Handgun Once Before…

August 20th, 2017  

Dear Dr. Piazza,

There is no pretending to convince my family and friends to come…I have already been doing that!!!  I was kind of nervous about going to Front Sight, I had really only shot a hand gun once before day 1 and I had a lot of trouble racking the slide on both the guns I tried.  The range master suggested I trade in the rental gun I was using and get one with an extended thingy to help me rack it easier.  I did that and was surprised to find on day 3, that I no longer needed the “extended thingy” to rack the gun…I had already built the wrist muscles I needed.  That helped to give me more confidence.  Before lunch on day 1, I was already at ease.  The instructors were very patient and I felt that they really enjoyed teaching…not just correcting.  “The Sgt.”, as my group called him, was a great R.M.!  He kept things humorous and we were ALWAYS shooting…which made us VERY happy…since that was the whole reason we came.  However, he did not make you feel bad if you were tired and did not want to shoot anymore.  As I have been telling my grandma, our instructors made it an ideal situation for all levels of learning.  We had several DGs in our class…and then there was me, and others who were beginners.  There was also an older lady who was having a lot of trouble with speed and racking the slide…the instructors simply let her keep her own pace…they let her do one controlled pair for our two and so on.  So I would say to anyone even halfway interested…”Just come!  You won’t be sorry!  With the knowledge I learned in 4 days, I feel confident that I would be able to defend my family!  I praise the Lord that He allowed me to come and learn from Front Sight and I can’t wait to come back with the rest of my family!”
