Front Sight Firearms Training Institute has a great firearms training program going. They have an incredible blog, they do great things in the name of marksmanship training and weapons safety.
As a small arms trainer/instructor for over twenty-two years, my area of expertise is combat pistol marksmanship. I am a strong advocate for instructing civilians in weapons safety and firearms training in general, and I believe the essence of the Second Amendment is an armed citizenry, ready and able to provide for the common defense.
A disclaimer, however; I am not affiliated in any way with Front Sight - although given the opportunity I would participate in their operation in a heartbeat. I hope that I may find the time & wherewithall to become involved, even if it means simply participating as a student - then I may properly endorse Front Sight.
It is within this theme that I present Front Sight's material here, and hopefully the opportunity will come to learn more about their operation.
