Training at Front Sight

I just completed a four day defensive handgun course at Front Sight It was a very good class . I enjoyed the class they have very good instructors any thier facilities are top notch. On a personal note I shot well and ran the drills well enough that the instructors asked if I would like to come and take instructor training. I am thinking about it it might make a good retirement job.

That’s great… I would love to do something like this, but at my age, I find doing things I did in my younger years a bit harder to do. I hope it happens for you if you decide to go this route… sounds like a very fun job.

why not go for it? If Jerry Miculek (he is in his 60’s), can be one of the top shooters in the world, then you should be able to do instructing at Front Sight.

Enjoy!

When you look at the pay and where you would have to live it will not work for me .To far from family and I Don t like the Desert. And I make a lot more here in Missouri and the cost of living is a lot less.

That is why I work with two friends of NRA committee’s to raise money to supply youth shooting groups with firearms and equipment to teach safety and keep them involved.

Well I am going to cancel the class I signed up for at front sight . They have decided to try and charge a monthly fee of $50 for you r membership . When I got mine I got a life membership that ment I could take classes at no charge and now they want to change it without any input from the members. I have taken enough classes to more than cover my cost so I will cancel the class and my membership .

Classes were first rate but I don’t like the strong arm tactics they are using on top of the monthly fee it will cost me $300 for the class so no I will not be dealing with them anymore. I can find classes closer and at lower cost .
