Ignatius Piazza: Doctor of Chiropractic, Master of Firearms

Dr. Ignatius Piazza was a chiropractor and gun enthusiast for many years.  He went to the range often and considered himself a pretty good shot, fairly capable with guns.  But, when a group of miscreants and anti-socials drove through his neighborhood in 1988, there was little he could do to prevent them from defacing his home and fruits with what he considered his pastime: guns.  As a victim of a drive-by shooting and left powerless to prevent it, Dr. Ignatius Piazza realized that although he had experience firing a gun, he didn’t actually know what was needed to use a gun effectively and to defend himself and others.

Piazza started on a path of education, its end-goal: mastery of firearms and their effective use.  He trained with world-class trainers and professionals.  Men and women who were top of their game at the time trained him for three years.  Through a total of thirteen week-long courses, Dr. Ignatius Piazza became a certified expert at Special Pistol, Carbine, Shotgun and Rifle training.  But for him, he knew it wasn’t enough.

As he came across more and more data and training, Dr. Ignatius Piazza realized that just gaining the data for himself would only protect himself and his immediate surroundings.  What would his having the data do for America, what would it do to make the world a better place to live?  He then realized the end-goal of his education was not to become an expert of firearms, but to become a world-class trainer of firearms.

Thus, Dr. Ignatius Piazza became the founder of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.  He poured his life into it, and has been directing its course for years.  Front Sight is extremely successful under Dr. Piazza’s hand, and it will continue as such.
