Really dude, there's a way to get the sause through to a new user, you had no business instructing if your presentation was that poor that you had to *scream* at your charge Yesterday at 11:06pm · Edited · Like · 4

James BuntenThere is was a long running investigation by the DOJ on FS. Back in the old days they used to give you the Scientology pitch in the tents between strings and during lunch. It was part of their bs about mastering yourself. The DOJ looked at them because of allegations that they were stock piling guns for the scientologists. Hence the reference to them.

Andrew MoonWell, if The only training I have is POST and Defensive HG "X,Y,Z" and Randy Watt tells me to avoid frontsite because, "I am past that" then I will believe him. So if a basic noob like myself is past that then they must be...low quality. Because to be honest...I'm not a super amazing pro ya know. Now Gunsite, he commanded me to go there...if I could afford it... 23 hrs · Like · 1
James BuntenAbout FS and Randy. I like Randy, he picked a fight for me when he didn't have to, because he did what was right. I will always be in his debt for that. But I wouldn't train under him. And I served under him. 23 hrs · Edited · Like

Rick PereBecause they are Scientologists, and are compounding a fraud. I would go to DTI and take instruction from a real meistro, JOHN FARNAM instead!

Jim SantoroPiazza wakes up every day, looks in the mirror, and decides that that mustache of his is a good decision. Has done that for forever.

Jeremy JohnLOL 4 weapon combat master. When you make up your own stuff, your own techniques, and you're selling poppycock, you can call yourself whatever you want. Every man is the master of his own domain. LMAO. I had totally forgotten about that. 9 hrs · Like · 1
David BahdeFor those not old enough to know where "Combat Master" came from, or who Chuck Taylor is follow the link. Can't remember if the Pizza man actually was anointed by Chuck himself or not.

Jason Daniel PriestI have a coworker that has bought a training class from front sight. I was going to let her know it's probably not a great class but she's already paid and I don't want her to feel she's wasted her money. She's not ever taken a class like this before.
