Hi,
Im a fs diamond member. I have not
had a chance to make it out there yet. It would be good to coordinate a trip and possibly rent a house for the week. I have found a few searching the web. I purchased several more AKD memberships new years eve after a few too many...scared I would miss out if it truly is the final offer.

Comments: I have a few Diamonds available if anyone needs one.

Membership Type: Diamond
Membership Date: March 2011
Courses Taken: 4DDH 3 times (Graduate) 4DTS (Distinguished Graduate)
Next Course: 4DDH with son (30 March 2012)


Comments:
I love this place. I am not advanced enough to tell if FS is good for advanced students, but I can tell you that a lot of the people who I see there think that they are advanced, but find out that they are not. One guy last time thought he was all that and a bag of chips, but could not clear a malfunction to save his life. I need to find a way to pick up 7 points (twice I lost 20 points and you can only lose 13 and DG) so I can DG and try out the advanced class.

I hope we can arrange a CalGuns trip. That would be a lot of fun.

I also bought a few Diamonds since they might actually be a thing of the past.

Comments: I am certain that the business model is completely unsustainable and that the full resort will never be built. However, I'm milking as much out of the membership as I can and so far, I have no complaints. I can't comment on how it compares with other programs but the price is right.

Tripper 01-06-2012 1:29 PM

would anyone be interested in a Google Calendar of Front Sight 2012 Courses

Tripper 01-06-2012 10:08 PM

Let me know what ya'll think about this

https://www.google.com/calendar/embe...ca/Los_Angeles

I can probably set it up for letting people add themselves to the schedule, as an appointment for a class, not sure if thats possible without sharing it with specific persons though.

if its missing any class, please let me know i finished it a while back when i noticed the calendar was posted on their site. it may very well have changed since then

Bert Gamble 01-06-2012 10:33 PM

Google is too powerfull. I opened your calander and it was in Portugeuse. How does it know where I am and change the language?

Time for the tin foil hat.

Comments: To those that have never gone yet but plan to stay in Pahrump when taking a class, make sure that you make your reservations at a hotel as soon as you plan to schedule classes. Remember, the Best Western will allow you to cancel a room up to 24 hours from the date of your arrival so you can make a reservation even when you thinking about scheduling your classes.

Just curious. I thought you had to DG to be eligible for the Advanced Tactical. I am going to sign up for it and see if they will let me in with just a Graduate certificate. They didn't give you any hassle?

To answer your question... yes, you do have to DG to take Advanced Tactical NOW (in 2012). Before (in 2011 and before), you could take the class with only Graduate. Good luck trying, but you may find that they will not allow you to take the class when you arrive.

This is correct. I signed up and took the class last year before the new rules went in to effect.

That sucks. I need to make up 7 points somehow (Droped 20 last time). I just can't seem to get enough COC shots in. Always 1/2 inch low.

Copious amounts of perfect dry practice will help. My wife and I run the drills on the skills test using the "par" function of our shot timer, this helps too. (we bought a bunch of targets from the pro shop previously in order to help with dry/live practice).

DiscoBayJoe 01-07-2012 11:02 PM

Picked up a Diamond w/Alaska last year. I've worn the hat twice, have not booked a class yet. Work this last year was crazy. I hope to change that this year!

terry4130 01-08-2012 1:41 PM

Me and my brother were in the 4DDH class in those videos. The class stared on dec 19th 2011. We were on range A and also rifle range 10. It was so much fun and a great learning experience. All the instructors were great people and extremely helpful. Me and my brother both got graduate in the course. I'm not sure how many points I got, but on paper I only got 9 points deducted (lost focus for three shots). I am interested in learning about getting a membership if possible. Any info will help. Thanks

roushstage3 01-08-2012 2:29 PM

Diamond Membership as well as my Daughter. I am not sure how long they will stay in buisness, but going to take advantage of it while I can. I also have Diamond memberships available. If you haven't gone it is worth the trip.

We have gone several times. 4DDH (twice) (Graduate) 2DH Skill builder twice (Graduate and DG) AdvTactical.

I was told as long as you took either the 2DDH of 4DDH plus a skill builder you could take the Adv Tactical class.

That was what I did last year, before I DG. They have you shoot the test before starting the class. As long as you showed proficency, they let you continue.

I took the class last week and that's what they do. Some students were really questionable with their shooting. The instructors deliberated for 5-10 min. They let them through because everyone was safe and the shooting could be worked on.

I hope to make at least one trip this year but I just took a new job and I will most likely be worked like a 2 dollar whore for years to come :(.

Does anyone know what their initial inspection of your equipment entails? Do they have issues with trigger jobs and such?

The inspection simply involves several dry fires of your weapon to see how smooth the trigger is. Yes, I have had a trigger job on one of my guns that I frequently use at Frontsight and I have not had any major issues. Yes, the person conducting the inspection had acknowledged that they saw that I had a trigger job, but they never had a problem with it. Hope this helps you. If you can't get to a 4-day class, try a 2-day class instead as this may work better for your schedule.

Comments: Very exited to get started! I'd like to get the courses in to be able to take the 2DATN Jun 30. I know it is ambitious, and it'd be a lot easier to share the driving costs & responsibilities with someone that'd be interested in accomplishing the same. The schedule could be as follows:

2/24 - 4DDH
4/6 - 2DATH
6/30 - 2DATHN

Anyone interested?

That'd be killer. Would probably make planning group trips and carpooling much easier. Perhaps there is some kind of shared calendar function that the forum could make available for this purpose...

Since front site is a commercial venture, and many people make a profit on it, any thoughts about them paying for a sponsor ship? I mean free publicity is one thing. But the spam is ridiculous

I don't expect any of that to affect the FS decision making, but I agree it would be more useful for talking to general members and the voting public if it should come to that, which i hope it does not.

But, by design, anything to do with FS generally is a poopstorm on the interwebz.

I dunno, but I would advise against it, taking FS money wouldn't be net benefit to CGN IMO.
