    Gabe Suarez is a criminal and an *******.

    His followers only do so because they are incapable of original thought.

    I'd rather attend a class taught by a one armed hobo.

    Good catch! I guess I wasn't paying attention when I read this post. Dang ADD.



    In retrospect, I've heard negatives about Ignatius and his corporation, in which their marketing borders harassment.

    Try lethal force institute or thunder ranch.

    I have been attending Front Sight for about 2.5 years now. I have been shooting over 50 years. I am very happy with their training and depending on your progression the courses become more demanding. They cover handgun, rifle, SG, full auto plus knife and hand to hand. Just about anything you would want. Try to ignore the constant mailing hype. I doubt Piazza writes everything. If he did he is a real snake oil salesman. If you can get past the hype and fluff the training is very good. You can get more advanced stuff outside of FS but the training is very good. I highly recommend it. You can PM me if you want more personal information.

    +1 on what Mike said. While the marketing is a little overwhelming at times, when you are actually there, it's all business. The training I've attended is top notch. I'm going back in a few weeks for a four day handgun class followed immediately by a two day carbine class. I'm a lifetime member and so are several members of my family and several close friends. If you are interested in going, make sure you go through someone who is a lifetime member. And it's always more fun to go with at least one friend.

    Bottom line, I enjoy it and recommend it unreservedly.

    I honestly can't believe you have done this six times.

    Are you posting in the correct forum? Also, "edmonton escorts"? Are you dictating your notes? If so, please proofread. Good advice for any posting. Can't understand what you mean.

    I have a certificate for the 4 day handgun class that I got with a membership. Their actual training is supposed to be top notch if you can get past the hyped up marketing tactics. I have questioned how much it would help me as I am confined to a mobility chair. I emailed Piazza about this and he assured me I would benefit from this course and they would work with me. I think he is sincere about his training.

    They will work with anyone. Before you go though I would call FS in Pahrumph and talk specifics with the chief instructor. He is the one who knows the reality of the situation. Any special arrangements would need to be done through him. Also, be careful of the season you go in. Lots of dirt, aka mud, in rainy season. Probably not a problem if your chair is 4WD.

    Yep...watching out for the rainy season is a fact of life for me and my trusty rolling battle wagon. The email I got from Piazza assured me they would accommodate my situation and I believe them. I think it would be a blast ( no pun intended) to attend and I think I will by golly.

    I have to agree the training is great I have taken 2 classes so far and the training was great I have purchased a lifetime membership and one for my son. I agree it is better if you go with a friend or significant other. If anyone needs any information on lifetime memberships you can pm me.
