Was listening to The Dana Loesh show the other day and heard a promo add for a “FREE”
4 day course at Front Sight training facility near Las Vegas NV.
I signed up right away to see what the deal (scam) was and was surprised to get signed up without a hitch. Says you can choose your dates with out penalty at any time.
Any one else know anything about this place or the deal?

Dr. Ignatius Piazza, the famous chiropractor turned Scientologist operator operating operationally . . . . . .

You just signed up for endless spam and sales attempts, if history repeats itself.

BTW, what kind of "penalty" could there be on FREE?

Wait for it . . . . . .

He tried to get me interested and sent me videos to review. I was appalled at bad weapons handling (muzzle discipline) and poor safety. You couldn't pay me to go there. Basically a place for mall ninjas.

Zoid, you are on top of this scam. Good for you and good info for the rest of us.
I initiated a simple inquiry to his organization nearly 15 or 20 years ago. It took forever to get off of his spam list. Fortunately, I used a "burner" e-mail account and no longer use that e-mail address. I keep a few of those on hand for exactly this type of contact. It's easy to set up several with Hotmail, Mail.com, etc. Use them, have them forwarded to your "real" e-mail account, and shut them down if you start getting crap crammed down your throat.

I remember using a software program called "MailWasher" a decade or two ago. It would create artificial "User does not exist" replies to whomever you wanted to stop sending you crap.

Ah, the good old days. Now you can just flag stuff with your ISP as spam to stop the onslaught.

BTW, he has not updated his online photos in over 15 years. I guarantee he don't look like that any longer.

Zoid it's the only reason I use Yahoo for "general" email I don't want on my serious accounts. Just toss it in the spam folder and it's good about catching spam, not not perfect. You do need to check what's going into spam from time to time.

FS also lists itself in Nevada. For the person that said "West Virginia" that's Peacemaker

Zoid is right on the mark. When i got back into shooting a few years ago, and before I smartened up and joined this forum, I hit one of his clickbaits. Dr. Pinatceo grande spammed hell out of me for at least two years. Same old story with him, same old song and dance my friend!

Maybe he could give Paul Liebenberg a few lessons in communications and business ethics?

Did I just say that . . . . . . ?

I saw a thread or two dated late 2019 / early 2020 with a gun. Not sure how many others have made it through.

I heard the commercial on the radio coming home today. Free 4 day $2000 course value free but hurry slots will fill fast! After the 1st day you will know more than 99% of gun owners. This was in the S.F Bay area on a conservative radio station(yes there are a FEW out here). 1 guy at work has gone to the place in Las Vegas. He won't say much about it. I think he's embarrassed. I smell a big sham.

Yup. I also heard it on the Savage radio show 560 SFO as well as on the Dana show. He’s spending a lot on advertising.
