The cost of attending a Front Sight course has become more economical. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions on saving money on Front Sight. I stay at the Saddle West Hotel. Front Sight students can get fairly inexpensive rooms at Saddle West. Of course you can always rent a gun and buy ammunition at Front Sight but for purchasing ammunition, I recommend Stockpile Defense.
