    And the clouds part, the light shines through, and the truth beckons.
    I remember those.

    As for Front Sight, if they do it for you then great, any good training is worth doing, here, there, or anywhere.
    The vibe I'm getting from the gallery is that similar training can be found here in PA.
    That's certainly true, but if you found a group you like to train with, and you like to travel, then plus tibi virtus.

    I've been to other shooting schools but with the exception of Alias which I believe is no longer in existence, none of the shooting schools have had the intensity level or workload of Front Sight. Front Sight is for people who are or who want to really get seriously into guns not just a place where somebody might take a gun class for fun or out of curiosity.

    I did my initial training at Parris Island, followed by intensive weapons training at Camp Geiger. I'll wager they're a tad better then Front Sight, or any other Camp Wannabee.

    Front Sight trains you to standards that exceed that of the military and that exceed that of the police. I would know since I've met police officers and military personnel that take classes at Front Sight. This one fellow who had been a marine for many years took the M-16 class at front sight and said it was more in depth than any training he had in the marines.

    Exactly. I feel like an ass for even responding to it, and more of an ass for driving 5 minutes to go shoot rather then travelling across the country.

    Depends what you want to get out of your shooting.
