Front Site in Receivership

Posted by Rob Longenecker on May 18th, 2009

Front Sight in Receivership: At 11 a.m. Monday, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute and its president, Ignatius Piazza, went into receivership. All financial transactions involving the firearms training facility – from accepting payment for classes to paying staff and vendors – must take place through a court-appointed administrator. The facility and all assets have been seized by the court, down to the hundreds of firearms included as part of new members’ benefits. However, despite the ruling, this weekend at Front Sight everything was “business as usual,” according to Operations Manager Rick Morello… (I have always been skeptical of Front Sight’s marketing, dating from their first mailing I received when they and I were still in California. I was not shocked in the least when a list member, who is a graduate of multiple Front Sight courses, described the operation to me as a Ponzi scheme, about six years ago. The gist of the lawsuit, as I recall, was the failure of Front Sight to deliver the homes that were promised in what Piazza claimed would be “the safest community in America.”)

    Now that’s interesting. I signed up for their newsletter after reading about the special offer you posted. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising there was no mention of any of this in the multiple emails I’ve been receiving from them.

    Oh well. There are still good schools out there. I’m thinking maybe someday going to Clint Smith’s Thunder Ranch.

    Just to keep this updated, the receivership was dissolved on May 18th, a week later, and all assets returned to Front Sight, with classes continuing on as usual.
