Dads Helping Dads Figure Out Being a Dad

Front Sight

I have been a bit silent for the last week as I have been out of town in Las Vegas!  Thursday and Friday were primarily occupied by Ray and Kate’s wedding at the Luxor.  After a short and sweet ceremony on Friday the 13th, Mel and I spent a couple of days having a mini baby-moon.

The last couple of times we were in Vegas, we talked about doing some of the exhibitions, but have always run out of time.  This time, however, we were able to do the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, Bodies at the Luxor and CSI at the MGM.

On Sunday, I put Mel on a plane home and picked up a couple of friends from the airport.   We had something of a ‘Dadchelor Party,’ which involved firearm training in the form of a defensive handgun course at Front Sight.

In four days, we covered firearm safety, grip, aiming, presenting from a holster, presenting from a concealed holster, legal and moral issues, dry fire exercises, malfunctions, how to clear a house in dangerous situations and how to fire quickly and effectively.

The class was a mix of students with significant shooting experience, students who had never shot a gun, and everything in between.  After 4 short days, students who did not know anything were drawing and firing from a concealed holster — and hitting head shots at 45 feet.

Although Front Sight is somewhat controversial in certain circles, I found the experience to be enjoyable and the training to be effective.  In four days, I learned to draw from concealment and put two rounds into the chest at 45 feet in about 3 seconds — and faster at closer ranges.  The cost of attending this program is very low — most of the cost is tied up in hotel costs and travel.  The class cost about $125, plus the cost of ammunition (about 800 rounds).  If you have time, attend this class!
