About the Founder and Director, Ignatius Piazza

You probably have not heard of me. I'm not a competitive shooter. I have not written any gun articles or published any books. I have not served in the military and I do not have any law enforcement experience. In fact, prior to 1988, I was just your average gun enthusiast. Then one evening, a group of anti-socials drove through my quiet neighborhood and blasted away at everything that represented the fruits of a decent work ethic.

During this random, drive-by shooting spree, I was struck by a sudden and frightening realization. Although I owned firearms and shot them regularly at the range, I was never taught the skills required to use a gun when it is needed most—to defend one’s life.

This revelation began my quest for training and ultimately placed me under the tutelage of firearms instructors, who at that time, were the industry’s most recognized experts. After thirteen week-long courses and thousands of hours of practice over a three year period, I held EXPERT certificates in Special Pistol, Shotgun, Carbine, and Rifle courses. As my expertise developed, I aspired to reach others and thus Front Sight Firearms Training Institute was conceived.
