Front Sight Mailbag: Always Been a Little Afraid of Dealing with a Handgun
April 10th, 2021
Dear Dr. Piazza,
I am completely new to handling weapons even though we have two sons that are peace officers. I’ve always been a little afraid of dealing with a hand gun. After a couple of days, I was feeling much more comfortable. The instructors were so patient and good at teaching the safety aspects. I was amazed at the level of training in four days. As we were driving home, we began discussing when we’ll return, as we purchased a life-time membership. We purchased for two reasons: 1) Training never stops when using any weapons. If one pauses too long in-between, more than likely a failure to properly handle a weapon will occur and 2) We have four sons; three are 1st Responders (2-Police Officers, 1-Fire Marshall). The 4th son has enjoyed fun weapons shooting but has never REALLY learned how to handle a weapon in situations. We are excited to now be part of the Front Sight family and know that our gift to our family will last beyond our lifetime.
