    Yeah, you guessed it: an XD!!! :mrgreen:

    Go figure that the Founder and Director of Front Sight would pick our very own handgun to give away in his deal.

    I'm not promoting his deal - just letting you know that his handgun of choice to give away is an XD!!

    [If you want to read about his deal (offer) to get people to his training facility, go to this link:https://www.frontsight.com/free-gun.asp]

    The website reads "scam" all over it, just in it's style of presentation.

    It does remind me of a late night infomercial. Almost to good to be true.

    If it's real, the guy should get some money back from whoever designed the website, and change his picture. He looks like that real-estate guru that used to be on at 2am before the cops locked his butt up for fraud.

    It seems like a scam, he is trying to sell it very hard. I will keep my 1199 and buy 2 xds

    Wow. I never thought this would be categorized under "scam" ....

    I thought Front Sight was a real place, where someone from this forum actually has been to for training.... the place has been in the news a lot before....

    Maybe my Free Course Certificate from then is a scam, too?

    From that website front page, I would not attend their classes.
    The shooting school I go to (Firearms Academy of Seattle), is all go and no show without pretending you'll walk out of it a combat wombat.

    I am turned off by hype.
    That's just me.

    Go here, you'll love it: http://www.firearmsacademy.com/default.htm

    I don't think it is a scam, I think it is pretty awesome!

    It's not a scam, though you may think it is.

    There have been many that have taken advantage of Dr. Piazza's generosity in the past as he offered free courses in exchange for publicity.

    If it is real, he needs to revamp that website. Hell, I'd expect something like this to be a pop-up that I didn't ask for.

    If anyone knows the guy, tell him to change things.

    Yes, the site needs to be updated.

    But I do recall him offering a similar course recently and gave the option of including either an XD or glock in those three calibers.

    Isn't front site the guy that's in with scientology so once you take his courses and sign up they start brain washing you? Maybe it was another gun school. Do a search and you should find it...

    Nope that is Front Site, but anyone with a strong will can get by that Bullschitt.

    that would make sense, I thought I recalled that Tom Cruise did some training for a movie there.

    I don't care, I'll go for a course there... I'll just have my Jesus filter on.
