Front Sight and Ignatius Piazza

The Worlds Premier Resort for self defense and personal safety training

Ignatius Piazza The Man Behind the World’s First Firearms Resort Town

Imagine this: you’re driving down a small Nevada highway. You’re driving west from Las Vegas, and you’ve come about eighty miles. You come across an enormous gated community. All you can really make out from the road is that there are spacious lots with beautiful homes. There are many large buildings, which don’t appear to have residential uses. There’s even a four-story tower-like building in there! You’re not sure what to make of it, probably. Odds are that if you got out of the car, you wouldn’t hear much more than the typical sounds of a gated community: cars, people, dogs. Listen very carefully, though, and you might hear a very gentle “d-d-d-d” sound. Believe it or not, that’s the sound of assault rifles and fully automatic firearms. What you’re imagining is the gated community of Front Sight, the firearms training institute conceived and founded by Dr. Ignatius Piazza.

Front Sight is a shooting school like no other. As Icon magazine revealed, Front Sight is an enormous, $25 million undertaking. The end goal: a gated community where individuals of any walk of life can come and stay for a few days to become trained in capable, responsible firearm use or where men and women can purchase a plot of land, build a home and live in a gated community devoted to firearms training and gun training.

Ignatius Piazza’s revolutionary idea for gun training is certainly unique. Obviously, there are those gun control fanatics who would be simply appalled, but one thing is for certain: there would be no instances of criminal violent crime in this gated community. What criminal would be stupid enough to draw a gun on someone who lives in a community designed for capable gun training? (The answer is none.)

Ignatius Piazza desires that for all of America: a safe haven where individuals are free to carry weapons, concealed or otherwise, without fear of others, because of their training.
