Front Sight and Ignatius Piazza


Ignatius Piazza is Pitting Civilians Against Cops

Dr. Ignatius Piazza is the man behind the firearms training school that is located 50 miles away from Las Vegas, Nevada. Dr. Piazza is a gun training guru. Through the countless, thousands of hours and scores of weeks and months the former California chiropractor has put in, he is more than prepared to deliver any gun training of any level to America's students. His gun training school, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, is the largest in the nation, so it makes sense that Dr. Piazza moved on to America's biggest fad: reality television.

Dr. Piazza has taken his firearms training facility and has made it into a filming ground for the 'Front Sight Challenge' a reality television show which airs Friday and Sunday afternoons on the versus channel. The 'Front Sight' Challenge pits civilians and law enforcement officers against each other in a duel of training. The handgun training, rifle training, shotgun training and submachine gun training available at Front Sight rivals that of police academies or military training camps, and Dr. Piazza is willing to prove it.

He went on to get thousands of hours of training, and dozens of courses from firearms training experts and masters. Eventually, Dr. Ignatius Piazza became the world's second Four Weapons Combat Master. From there, it all went up.
