This is very cool: The Front Sight Firearms Training Institute (www.frontsight.com) is offering an Armorer's Course for the Glock Series Pistol to the general public, and it’s over 60% off if you respond by February 5th! I've taken numerous courses at Front Sight with my G27, and the level of training and professionalism received there exceeds all other schools combined.
Read the details below on how to sign up for this course, which was previously offered only to law enforcement and military. There’s also a form on their website: www.frontsight.com/armclassfm.htm
Also check out Front Sight's Free Submachine Gun Course (www.frontsight.com/1day_smg_course.htm) that Ed and everyone is going to.
This was my first exposure to Front Sight, and I can vouch that they do indeed provide free instruction, Uzi’s, ammo, and food. The level of instruction I received at this course was so impressive that I knew I absolutely had to return to take the handgun courses
whoops, here's what they sent me:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 23, 2002
From: Dr. Ignatius Piazza
Founder and Director
Front Sight Firearms Training Institute
GLOCK USA contacted me and politely asked us
to change the name of our course from "Front Sight
Armorer's Course for the Glock Series Pistol" to
something much less descriptive. We politely
declined to change the name of our course.
GLOCK USA also confirmed that the private citizen
is barred from GLOCK Armorer's courses unless they
are associated with law enforcement or the military.
However, GLOCK wanted me to reveal that GLOCK
USA has allowed a very small percentage of private
citizens to attend, such as gun writers or Federal
Firearms License Dealers that have gunsmithing
services as part of their business activities.
GLOCK INC. also contacted Ben Paz of Glockmeister,
one of the two armorers that previously agreed to
instruct the "Front Sight Armorer's Course for the Glock
Series Pistol" in September and October. Ben Paz has
now withdrawn from his commitment to instruct
private citizens at Front Sight's Armorers Course and
wants no further contact with Front Sight. Therefore,
we are pleased to announce that JR Shepard, of Lone
Wolf Distributors will take over the two course dates
that Ben Paz withdrew from. JR Shepard will be the
Lead Armorer Instructor for ALL of Front Sight's
Armorer's Courses this year.
See the e-mail below that has caused all the ruckus.
Feel free to forward this to all on your e-mail lists.
Announcing the Front Sight Armorer's Course for the Glock
If you love Glocks... and you'd like to know everything
there is to know about Glocks -- particularly the "inside
secrets" of world-famous Glock armorers -- then you should
know about a rare opportunity to attend an Armorer's Course
for the Glock Pistol being offered for the first time EVER
to members of the public through Front Sight Firearms
As you may know, Glock does not allow members of the
public to their Armorer's Courses. They're strictly for
military and law enforcement agencies. If you're a private
citizen, you're out of luck.
And yet, Glock enthusiasts from around the world hunger for
the inside information revealed at these Armorer's Courses.
Well, thanks to some high-level negotiations by the "brass"
here at Front Sight, we are now able to offer to the general
public the same "insider" information you would get if you
were somehow lucky enough to get into a Glock Armorer's
And best of all, the Armorer's Course we're going to offer
you will be presented by one of the top Glock experts in the
entire world -- J.R. Shepard of Lone Wolf Distributors.
And, if you attend Front Sight's coveted Three Day Armorer's
Course for Glock Pistols that we're now offering to the
public, you will know everything there is to know about the
Glock. You will know how every part works... why it was
designed that way... and how to expertly use, repair, and
replace every part on your Glock from now until the day you
You will have better skills than probably 99% of all the
armorers in the world-AND you will know how to use your
Glock better than the vast majority of people who carry
Glocks for a living. Why?
sorry, too long for one post:
Because a Three Day Front Sight Armorer's Course
goes way beyond any typical armorer's course. That's
because -- in addition to the technical aspects of the weapon --
you will also receive expert instruction from Front Sight's
stellar staff of Handgun Rangemasters and instructors,
who will train you to levels you just cannot imagine in the
defensive use of your Glock.
You will get a world class armorer's course for the Glock pistol
AND world class firearms training from Front Sight all rolled into
a 3 Day course at Front Sight's world class facility near Las Vegas,
Nevada. There is no other course like this in the world at any price.
Remember: Unless a private citizen has some "inside connection"
to an FFL Dealer or law enforcement, you can't get into Glock's
armorer's course anywhere else in the world, at any price.
Glock won't hear of it.
But now, for a limited time only, Front Sight is making the
Armorer's Course for Glocks available to anybody who loves
the Glock and wants a detailed, intimate knowledge of the
Glock's history, development, function, maintenance, and the
various enhancements possible with a Glock pistol.
Since this course has never been offered to the private
citizen before, the response is likely to be immediate --
and classes will fill up FAST.
So DO NOT DELAY in responding to this historic offer.
Three Day Course dates (Friday - Sunday) are as follows:
September 13-15 -- J.R. Shepard, Lone Wolf Armorer
October 11-13 -- J.R. Shepard, Lone Wolf Armorer
November 8-10 -- J.R. Shepard, Lone Wolf Armorer
December 13-15 -- J.R. Shepard, Lone Wolf Armorer
The cost of the course is normally $800, and includes a
Glock disassembly tool, a special disassembly mat, an
armorer's manual, plus all the end-of-course gifts normally
provided to all Front Sight students.
However, for those who respond immediately -- and no later
than Midnight, February 5, 2002 (or before the class is
filled, whichever comes first) -- Front Sight will send you
a special Front Sight Course Certificate that will allow you
to attend this unbelievable course for ONLY $300.
YES, THAT'S A HUGE SAVINGS OF $500!!!
We're offering you this savings because we know that once
you attend this course at Front Sight, you'll want to come
back for ALL our courses -- and you'll tell everyone you
meet that Front Sight is without a doubt the finest firearms
training facility in the world. You will be convinced,
firsthand, that Front Sight provides a level of training that
you just can't get anywhere... at any price.

Sight Armorer's Course for the Glock Pistol, simply complete

you respond no later than Midnight, February 5, 2002 -- or
before the classes are filled, whichever comes first. (It
is likely that these course dates will fill before the
February 5 deadline so don't waste any time in responding)

I'm going. But over on GlockTalk there are some guys complaining because it sort of implies it is a Glock sanctioned course, but it is NOT. I still think its a worthwhile course so I'm going to go, but just be advised that you are not getting the real Glock Armorers course at Frontsight.
