Front Sight Critique: I Had Thought I’d Be Bored…
September 24th, 2017
Dear Dr. Piazza,
Yesterday I completed my first handgun course with your training Academy and I was truly impressed! I am a 15 years LEO with a mid-sized Dept. In the Midwest [250 + Sworn Officers] Most of those Officers truly scare me as well but that’s a different email. I do not have the words to express to you the utter amazement I feel for your instructors! I accompanied two other Officers to Front Sight and was honestly scared upon stepping up to the firing line the first day. I was accustomed to shooting with LEO’s and Military personnel, but this line was truly different.
This line included Civilians who had never held a handgun in their life and that was truly bothersome, but after the first day with your instructors I was at ease with the civilians. They took a rag tag bunch and made them all shooters in four freaking days! It was the single most impressive transformation I have ever witnessed! To be honest I showed up at Front Sight believing I would be bored out of my mind.
