Ignatius Piazza’s Mission: Give The Image of Gun Training a Much-Needed Makeover

September 14, 2010 · Posted in Ignatius Piazza · Comment 

With mid-term elections coming up in November, the country’s political climate is an interesting one. It is highly likely that there will be a considerable shakeup for both parties, considering the large advances being made by grass-roots conservative groups. Pundits and forecasters are predicting a considerable conservative shift in politics. New ideas will be considered, and old ideas will be weighed against new thoughts. Gun control is definitely one of the old ideas that will get a new look. There are many people looking forward to changes in gun control laws, and not least among them is a man by the name of Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. Dr. Piazza has made it his life’s work to positively change the image of gun ownership, through excellent gun training delivered to as many people as possible. His gun training school is extremely successful and has been enjoying astronomic growth for years. Front Sight and Ignatius Piazza are well on their way to changing the way America looks at gun use, gun ownership and gun training.

Quite simply, the approach to gun training at Front Sight is similar to the approach to driving training in the rest of the country: there’s no doubt that a vehicle is a potentially deadly object that could and has killed many people, but in responsible, properly trained hands, can be safely used for its intended purpose. Americans don’t think twice about the fact that there are over 254 million licensed vehicles on the road, any of which could very easily become a 2,000-pound, 70-mile-an-hour deadly incident. That’s precisely the mindset Ignatius Piazza is creating about firearms use and gun training: there’s no reason to fear guns, there’s no reason to fear gun users.

Ignatius Piazza’s firearms training not only emphasizes safe, responsible use, but it also focuses very heavily upon every citizen’s right to be fully trained and protected. Front Sight’s motto is appropriately: “Any gun will do — if you will do”. Dr. Piazza was the victim of a drive-by shooting which he reports could have easily been turned into a home invasion, and his goal is to create an America where home invasions, burglaries and violent crimes simply do not exist, for in a world where everyone is armed and fully trained, criminals know their chances of surprising a victim are nil.

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute boasts that it trains more firearms training students than all other schools in the nation combined. Considering the size and scope of their facilities near Las Vegas, Nevada and the range of courses available, this isn’t surprising at all. Furthermore, the reason for the boast is even more clear when it’s shown how many special offers Ignatius Piazza creates – (like giving away a free handgun for signing up for a course). Ignatius Piazza isn’t interested in being the richest gun training expert in the world, he’s not even that interested in being the most famous. What Ignatius Piazza wants is to get every American trained and armed – and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that.

In an America that will soon be re-evaluating its political standing, Ignatius Piazza’s mission to positively change the image of gun ownership in America is perfectly set to be getting a huge boost in the very near future. If self defense is an interest of yours, or if gun training is a hobby, you owe it to yourself to look into Front Sight and see what they can offer you.
