I went through front sight a while ago – back in 2010. I did the 4-day pistol course, 2-day rifle, and 2-day shotgun. Unlike Chris, I’m simply terrible with a pistol. At the end, they were kind and gave me a paper that more or less said, “this guy is really terrible with a pistol but he managed to avoid shooting himself or anyone else, so there’s that.” I came away with the distinct impression that a pistol was just a malfunction waiting to happen. I even had a type-1 malfunction happen to me in one of the drills! Which I cleared, thank heavens; can’t fault the training, it was excellent.
I didn’t like the rifle either. It was this light, finicky thing that I basically didn’t trust by the end of the class.
Ah, but then there was the shotgun. With the shotgun, I was flawless. I never missed. (“But, it’s a shotgun” I hear you cry. Yes, exactly.) As in, really I hit every single time. With the solid shot, and the buckshot, at 10 meters, and at 50, I always got to hear this rewarding noise from the iron targets. Oh sure, my shoulder was sore by the time I was done, but my goodness. Did I mention that I never missed?
I came away with a very clear appreciation for which weapon I would go for in any sort of trouble.
Blessed shotgun. 🙂
