Front Sight and Ignatius Piazza

Ignatius Piazza Gets Back Up

Dr. Ignatius Piazza was, until about 1988, a practicing chiropractor, a respected physician. He had been a gun enthusiast for some years, attending firing ranges occasionally, and being an all-around Second Amendment proponent. Then, in 1988, his home was strafed by gunfire from a drive-by shooting. Shaken up by the attack from a group of miscreants and anti-socials, Dr. Piazza had quite a realization: although he owned guns, he had no idea how to use them to defend himself or his loved ones effectively. This realization expanded and he realized that he couldn’t be the only one in America who was in such a position. He decided then that he would found America’s most successful shooting school. He envisioned a shooting school which could deliver the finest firearms training on the planet, in an environment unlike anything the world had ever seen.

Dr. Ignatius Piazza set out on a several-year training regimen. He was trained by some of that time’s finest shooting instructors. The firearms training that Dr. Piazza went through was enough to show him how little he really knew about real gun training. He continued for years, becoming an expert in Pistol, Special Pistol, Carbine and Shotgun. Throughout his training, he uncovered an accreditation which entered one into the highest echelon of gun mastery: the Four Weapons Combat Master. He trained even more intensely, six months of rigorous training brought him to the point where he took the examination and failed a few times before finally passing, becoming the second man in the world to do so.

With his experience, he created Front Sight, the world’s finest firearms training school in the world. The education he received became compressed, more easily teachable and deliverable. And as the writer for Financial Times can tell you, everything Ignatius Piazza teaches is real, safe and fun. The Front Sight Firearms Training Institute delivers handgun training, rifle training, shotgun training, submachine gun training and self defense training, all world-class, top of the industry.
