Anyone ever been to Front Sight in Nevada?

I just took the 4 day defensive handgun with the FiveseveN and it rocked. Graduated the course. Very impressed with the gun....only complaint is that the grips were rough on my hands around the 4th day.

Loved Front Sight, any one else go regularly?

I have not been there. I am going to Cunsite for their five day course. This course is a celebration of 1911 Centennial. I have been trying to figure out which grips to take to keep from geting shredded.

Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

Yes, It can be expensive, but you can find good deals on memberships or certificates on ebay to take a class. This is the best gun training I have ever been to. I have take the handgun and the tactical rifle class. Awesome instruction. I have handled guns all of my life and I cant believe what I didnt know.

They offered a helluva deal a while back for people that attended Glenn Beck's rally. I could have lied and said I went, but I didn't go and I won't lie. (That character flaw also disqualifies me from ever becoming a democrat). I would have taken that deal if I could have though.

Doesn't that disqualify you from being a politician all together?

I slapped a Hogue Handall on mine. It's a real pain to get on, and between the palm swells and finger grooves it will feel a bit bigger in your hand, but I like it. I also hear the Pachmayr grips will fit (#1 and #2) although I haven't tried it. Might want to check them out, I know it's much easier on the hands.

Ditto on the Hogue, makes it much more comfortable to hold. My girlfriend has smaller hands and preferred it without the handall, but damnit it's my gun. For now anyways :ponder:

Search for a certificate for sale on ebay and you can find a great deal. The training is excellent. As far as the grip, that is easy, use an IOM. That new rough grip never made any sense to me.
