Front sight Academy Donates $2000 Training To GBR-III

I just got an e-Mail from Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and head guy from Front sight Firearms Training Institute, and he had two pieces of good news for me. First, he will be donating a $2,000 dollar four day training course to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous for inclusion in our Project Valour-IT fund raising efforts. That will go on the list along with a new Hi-Point 9mm. pistol, a Dillon range bag (I think) and possibly some other stuff too!

The second piece of good news is that Dr. Piazza is going to try to attend at least part of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous so we can meet him in person and he can answer any questions we may have about his training programs. He sounds like an interesting guy and I'd like to meet him in person some day.

Perhaps he'll let you guys know how that whole plagiarizing and profiting off of another blogger's work without attribution thing went. Although I believe Marko said legal action was being taken, so it may just another lawsuit he can't talk about.

That's not to knock the event or anything, but I thought it fair to warn you that he hasn't always respected the ownership rights of writers and bloggers in particular.

Wow, you'll have 20% of the world's supply of four-weapons-combat-masters. Whatever you do, don't bake any clams for lunch if he's around.

Shiny. I assume the cert and everything else will be going to an auction? Not that I am particularly interested in the course, given what flight prices are these days, but the range bag sounds nice... ;)
