Wait... are you saying that you have to buy your ammo from him if you take a course there? You can't bring your own ammo?

No, you don't have to buy their ammo.  They do have restrictions on steel jacket, steel core, and other types, but you can bring your own.

Speaking of their website, it sucks.  It hasn't been changed in 20 years.  It looks cheap and sleazy, just like Piazza, who still has the same photo on his website.

That's not uncommon. Thunder Ranch has the same policy.

Does he make you stay onsite in his own hotel for $250 a night?

Does he make you eat all of your meals in his dining hall for $35 a meal?

Sounds like he's missing out on a couple of important revenue streams.

Alright
I will admit I knew zip about Front Sight so I went to their website and this immediately caught my eye

With nearly a million responsible citizens trained, from every town, city and state across the United States, I know Front Sight gun training is right for you

Nearly a million? BS or not?

1,000,000* / 25 (I'm not counting 2022) = 40,000 people a/year. Yeah, right

*Nearly a million could mean almost anything but even if 500,000 that's still 20,000 people a/year. Even that number sounds way high to me.

Is it realistic that that many people could have gone through Front Sight?

Apparently, from back during the original Crimea event, I carried over a misunderstanding about Russian access to the Black Sea.

That doesn't change the strategic significance of Sevastopol or the rest of their seaports for that matter.

"Plus the cost of ammo. He is charging about .50 cpr for 9mm and 1.25 cpr for 223. A guy on a local board just took a 12 gauge course, ammo was 42 dollars per box of 25. And you need more than one."

"The thrift stores around here are dogshit I have better luck by far on Marketplace "

Pretty much the same here in Northern Virginia.

And on top of that, the Goodwill stores, which used to be pretty decent for finding inexpensive good stuff?

They've apparently gone with a new pricing model the last few years... MSRP + 10 to 30%

I've seen a number of items at the local Goodwill that I know I could get for less at one of the expensive department stores like Macy's, and for about half at Amazon.

It's insane.

Yours?  What grips?
Was my dad's. The grips are Roger's Combat Grips. The gun is a S&W 10-8. Still have it. My wife LOVES it.
