Front Sight and Ignatius Piazza

Ignatius Piazza: A Superman in the World of Firearms

Before 1988, Dr. Ignatius Piazza was little more than an established chiropractor and well-respected physician and gun enthusiast.  He brought himself to the ranges occasionally and considered himself a fairly able and capable shot.

In 1988, Dr. Ignatius Piazza was the victim of a drive-by shooting.  Several utter anti-socials drove through his neighborhood and attempted to ruin what is clearly the achievements of long, honest lives’ work.  It was during this drive-by that Dr. Piazza had a startling realization: he had plenty of experience firing firearms, he had been a gun enthusiast for years.  However, all the time he had spent at the ranges hadn’t earned him any information on how to defend himself in threatening situations.

He therefore sought the finest training available at that time.  It brought him under the tutelage of the best firearm trainers in the world for a total of thirteen week-long courses and thousands of hours of practice.  At the end of his training, Ignatius Piazza was certified an expert in special pistol, shotgun, carbine and rifle courses.  But it wasn’t enough.

Although he was now an expert, he realized the need to pass on this life-changing and life-saving data to others.  Thus Front Sight Firearms Training Institute was founded.  But in his search for a truly workable system to employ at Front Sight, he came across a certification that was far above and beyond the norm for firearms experts.  In fact, at the time of Dr. Piazza taking the examination for the illustrious credential, only one man had ever successfully attained rank of Four Weapons Combat Master.  Though it was published in 1981, in August of 1993, Dr. Ignatius Piazza became the second man to ever secure the Four Weapons Combat Master certificate.

All this is evidence that Dr. Ignatius Piazza is one of, if not the most, certified man to operate a world-class firearms institute.  Good thing, then, that he does.  Front Sight Firearms Training Institute is America’s leading shooting school.  It graduates more students every year than all other shooting schools in America combined.  Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight are a cut above all others, remember the names for when you need and want firearms training.
