Anyone here gone to Front Sight and taken any of their course? Good, bad, so so? I won a lifetime membership there and just trying to see if its worth the travel expense and everything else to attend courses or if I'm better off looking for training closer. Thanks

I call it the Walmart of gun schools. Not the best training, but a product for the masses and a great value for a wide audience.

My buddy who lives in kommiefornia went so many times they made him an instructor. Not an easy process

When you decide to take advantage of your membership, I suggest to go for multiple classes in a row. Look at the schedule, you maybe able to take the 4 day handgun class, followed by the one day Multi State CCW class; have a couple days off, then take a long gun class.

Days off, see a show in Vegas, do laundry, etc.

Picked up a lifetime Commander membership for my son and myself at a local GS for $500ea. Just took the 4 day defensive handgun class and enjoyed it very much. Went in June and was 100 degrees but they supplied lots of water and didn't have you standing out in the sun more than necessary.

Facility is large and a shoot house is attached to each of the 25 pistol ranges that are used on days 3 and 4.

Very well run. People were easy going too....not like the police academy.

One of our instructors photobombing



We used Shemaghs to keep the sun off our face and neck. In the morning on days 3 and 4 the sun came up behind the targets. Wore darkened UV400 goggles too.



Stayed at the Holiday Inn in Pahrump. Cracked up at this sign going to FS in the mornings. Everywhere we went in town people were friendly and supportive of us attending a class at Front Sight. Definitely a departure from the CA environment.
