I ended up signing up for a lifetime membership as well. I haven't been able to get out yet, but I'm planning to head out next year for the pistol class. Also, to anyone interested in a lifetime membership, send me a PM.

Yep.

I assume it has to do with the new ambassador membership. I have three right now. That's about what I was assuming I could sell them for.

I'm actually here at Front sight right now. Just finished a 4 day handgun class yesterday and started a 2 day practical rifle class today. The training you get here is a bargain at any price. You do, however, need to come here with an open mind and be willing to do things their way. Don't come here to show off what you think you know because it just pisses off those of us who really are here to learn.

They do ask you to try it their way, if it doesn't work better for you, your welcome to do it your way. If you can show your way is better, they will even consider trying it.

Good guys and gals, with the goal of getting everyone to shoot, shoot better, shoot safer, and spreading the word to get everyone to do the same. That's a great goal..

Update: We got home late Sunday from Front Sight. My sis and I did a four day handgun class followed immediately by a two day practical rifle class. I don't know if I recommend doing back-to-back classes if you are fat and out of shape like me. My @$$ was pretty solidly kicked. But it was fun. I made graduate in the handgun class with only two shots outside the box for the whole test. My speed was another matter entirely. Need to work on a faster presentation from cover. But not bad for my first four day handgun class.



One cool little bonus, and I don't know when they started this or how long it lasts, but on day one of each class, during lunch time, they held a full auto fun shoot. $30/mag to shoot an M-16, MP5, Thompson, Uzi, or mini-Uzi. And no one was standing there hollering about short bursts only, you wanna dump the mag, have at it. Just keep it under control. Pretty fun little distraction.

Can't say enough about Frontsight! Great Training, Great Instructors, Great Fun.

We call it the Disneyland for Gun Owners.

They even have 4 day Automatic Weapons classes were you shoot M-16's or Uzis for 4 days.

If you live in or visit Las Vegas once a year, and like to shoot, you need to be a member..

Contact a member to become a member, but don't pay more than $500 bucks for the top level (Diamond) membership.

Online says each class costs $2,000.00, but members can get you every class, any day, for the rest of your life for free, If you buy one of their extra memberships.
I was offered the membership for $350 if my friend and I payed for a membership at the gun show on a Sunday afternoon end of the day kinda thing. Didn't get it though. My buddy did t have his share and I didn't have enough to cover us both.

If you have a chance to go to a gun show here in Vegas. Wait til Sunday afternoon and go talk to them. They will hook you up. Unbelievably!!

Sad to say that the membership that once retailed for $98,000 (not a typo), can be found for as little as $99 sans the 5 free guns.
