Playboys Reach for Shotgun Training From Front Sight

Shotgun training is one of the many specialties of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, and one of the many reasons they've been featured in magazine after magazine and newspaper upon newspaper. Their gun training is unlike anything anywhere else, as evidenced by the fact that not only are they the largest, most successful gun training school in America, but their annual attendance is higher than all other shooting schools in the nation combined. Obviously, Front Sight's training is superior. And they don't only deal in shotgun training. They run the whole gamut, from handgun training to submachine gun training, with rifle training and self defense training for good measure. You name it, if it's anything to do with gun training, Front Sight's got it.

Because of their enormous return rate, their superior training and ultra-professional cadre of former law enforcement, military and private gun training professionals, Front Sight is often made the target of journalists, especially those with an interest in firearms training. But even Dr. Piazza, the founder and director of Front Sight, was a bit surprised when Playboy magazine came in for an interview. What drew Playboy was the call of free submachine gun lessons for any that would consider hearing Dr. Piazza speak for about an hour. If they didn't want to listen, they could leave after the free submachine gun lesson was over.

The speech was about Dr. Piazza's plans to transform Front Sight from the world's finest shooting school into the world's first gun town. Dr. Piazza intends to build a 500-acre residential community anchored around shooting ranges, instead of a golfing range or a racquet club. Front Sight, Nevada, will boast 20 state-of-the-art shooting ranges, a private K-12 school, a 5-story urban assault training tower, a convenience store, several hundred yards of underground tunnels for search & rescue training and a church.
