    I'm interested in reports on the quality of Front Sight Training programs.

    If you attended, was it informative?

    Worth the money?

    Recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Ralph

    You mean to tell me no one on this site has any experience with the Front Sight Training camp???

    No one can offer any comments based on attendance to a course??

    A group of the guys I shoot with went to Front Sight last summer, and everyone came back with raving reviews of the training.

    I've heard less than stellar things about the "business" side of their operation...

    There are numerous threads here about Front Sight and their training.

    I have attended a training class at Front Sight, and it was, IMHO, the best training I have had on =any= subject as an adult.

    You'll read/hear a lot of bovine scat about "church of Scientology" and "high pressure sales tactics" for lifetime memberships .... but oddly enough the vast vast vast majority (if not all) of those comments will be from people that have -never been there-.

    Front Sight Training

    October 28, 2002. Our 35th Wedding anniversary! Wife and I had gone to Las Vegas for several days. Had signed up for the Submachine gun course at Front Sight. Drove to the location (about 1 hr from Vegas) had the free breakfast and introduction to site. Left with group of about 20 men and women and spent the rest of the day shooting Uzi's. Outstanding instructions and range. Outstanding instructors (including the main guy from Front Sight). Charge-absolutely free! Nada! Zilch! Nothing! Drinks, lunch all provided. One flight would shoot while the other flight would observe and load magazines. Have no idea how many rounds we shot during the day but 600 would probably be very conservative! Would definitely be a member if I lived anywhere close to Nevada. Would recommend site and its training highly! Will be going back again if life and $$ permit.

    I'm a member since I live in Vegas and can get there on a regular basis. My shooting definitly improved after my first class there and has continued to improve with the further training. If you only plan on one class there get the certificate off E-bay for $100 and give it a try. PM me if you want any more info.
