    Front Sight has announced an offer to full-time Utah University Students for free CCW training.

    Subject:
    Utah University Students Add CWP to Their Degrees

    Las Vegas, Nevada: Students of Utah universities now have
    the opportunity to add the initials CWP (Concealed Weapon
    Permit) to their names and receive a level of training with
    a handgun that exceeds law enforcement and military
    standards all at the expense of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and his
    Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

    After hearing that Utah Legislators had lifted the Utah
    University ban against students carry concealed weapons on
    campus, Dr. Piazza, the Founder and Director of Front Sight
    Firearms Training Institute near Las Vegas, Nevada wants
    every law-abiding, full-time university student to have the
    opportunity to attend Front Sight's Five Day Armed Citizen
    Course and Piazza is willing to pay the $2,500 course
    tuition for each student.

    When asked why, Piazza stated, "I have always tried to lead
    by example so I am personally supporting the wise decision
    of the Utah Legislators. If our university students are old
    enough to fight for our freedom and die in Iraq with a
    machine gun in their hands, then with Front Sight's
    responsible training under their belts, they are certainly
    old enough and intelligent enough to carry a concealed
    handgun on college campuses to protect themselves,
    classmates, and faculty from the next homicidal and suicidal
    psych drug failure. I want to give Utah University students
    the comfort of skill at arms that will forever protect them
    and those around them. This is the least I can do to be a
    positive part of the real and immediate solution to stop
    random gun violence in our academic institutions."

    Front Sight's Five Day Armed Citizen Course has been
    hailed by private citizens and law enforcement alike as
    one of the most comprehensive handgun training courses
    in the world and results in graduates walking away
    with all the certification, finger prints, photos and
    paperwork to successfully apply for concealed weapon
    permits in Nevada, Florida, and Utah. Due to reciprocity
    laws, securing these three Concealed Carry Permits will
    allow a graduate of Front Sight's Five Day Armed Citizen
    Course to legally carry a concealed handgun in over 30
    states in the US.

    Roland Burk, currently serving and protecting in Utah, is a
    man who would know. Says Burk, "As a full time peace
    officer, soldier, and combat veteran, I have received a
    large amount of firearms training in the last decade. Some
    of the best training I have received, has not been provided
    through my law enforcement and military training. Instead
    it has come at my personal expense, through classes at Front
    Sight. I have seen Front Sight take someone who has never
    fired a gun before, and turn them into safe, educated,
    capable, and proficient, armed citizen. The type of armed
    citizen who is then able to save dozens of innocent lives."
    Burk adds, "I believe everyone has the right, and to a
    certain extent the duty, to protect themselves and those
    around them."

    Having previously served for 16 years as a Department
    Director for Utah State University, Scott Bradley who has
    also attended courses at Front Sight is delighted and amazed
    at the incredible opportunity available for Utah university
    students. Scott Bradley states, "As one who has attended
    numerous classes at Front Sight, I can attest to the quality
    and comprehensive nature of the instruction. In every case,
    I have found the courses to be vastly superior to any
    instruction I have previously received, including my own
    military training experience." Bradley adds, "The Utah
    Legislature has wisely recognized a great truth which has
    been well understood for centuries: That the right to defend
    one's self, one's loved ones, and our fellow man is an
    inherent God-given right-a right that must be recognized and
    preserved. Dr. Piazza should be commended and recognized for
    his generous offer of this excellent and potentially
    life-saving training at no cost to university students. I
    hope thousands will take advantage of this wonderful
    opportunity."

    In order to take advantage of Dr. Ignatius Piazza's offer
    full-time students of Utah universities simply follow these
    three easy steps:

    1. Go to www.frontsight.com and subscribe to Dr. Piazza's
    free 15 Gun Training Reports and when the subscription thank
    you page is revealed, order Front Sight's free brochure and
    DVD.

    2. Then go to Front Sight's Course Schedule page and select
    your Five Day Armed Citizen Course date.

    3. Print out the Application for Training page. Complete
    the Application for Training including the Statement of No
    Criminal History, Substance Abuse, or Mental Illness. Have
    someone, other than a family member, who has known you for
    five years, sign the Character Witness Statement. Supply
    payment for the Criminal Background Check and attach a
    document from your university indicating you are a current
    full-time student taking at least 12 Semester Units of
    classes.

    Mail the documentation in Step 3 to Front Sight at least two
    weeks prior to the Five Day Armed Citizen Course you select
    and Dr. Piazza will pay for your $2,500 tuition, enroll you
    in the course and Front sight will e-mail a Confirmation of
    Enrollment letter to you.

    Piazza adds, "I sincerely hope we are inundated with
    university students from Utah attending our Five Day Armed
    Citizen Course. Today's university students are tomorrow's
    leaders. I want our future leaders to experience first hand
    the comfort and confidence that comes having a gun with the
    skill to use it to defend yourself, your community, and your
    country. Hopefully other states will follow Utah's lead as
    Front Sight stands ready to assist them when they do."

    Senator Bob Beers of Nevada agrees with his peers from Utah
    and supports Piazza's efforts to train university students
    to carry a concealed handgun on campus. Says Senator Beers,
    "Nevada's legislative session has just over one month left,
    and several Second Amendment bills are still in play. As
    well, lawmakers' sensitivity to our citizens'
    responsibilities of self-defense seem heightened. It would
    be wonderful if Nevada's university students could join
    Utah's in keeping campuses safe and secure."

    I am student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. DO I qualify for this offer?

    I also wondered if AAshooter was affiliated with Frontsight, or if not, where you heard about this awesome program.

    Thanks.

    BYU is not the U of U, so I don't think so. CCW is prohibited by BYU/LDS church policy.

    I have trained at Front Sight and am on their mailing list. I do not work for Front Sight . . . just passing along the information. I receive no benefit.

    I am pleased with the quality of their training however and have no reservations about recommending their classes.

    Not just students. Larry will teach any student, staff, or faculty member that is associated with the Utah education system (ITT Tech, SLCC, U of Phoenix, etc). If they're a secretary in an elementary school Larry will give a free class. If they're the janitor at a highschool they get a free class. If she's the lunch lady at Judge she gets a free class. All Larry requires is proof that the person is affiliated with some Utah education system. He wants to allow as many good citizens as he can to be armed in Utah schools.

    The class does not include a photo or finger-prints. The photo can be done at home and the prints can be done at the BCI just before you turn in your paperwork.

    The article was a little confusing at times. At first, it sounded like "university of Utah",
    then because "Utah universitIES".

    Give them a call.

    Yeah i emailed them this afternoon and got a quick response, everything is legit. Now i need to take even more time off work this summer! It seems too good to pass up. Does anybody know other students interested in carpooling and sharing hotel rooms? I might have a few other guys interested too, so we could save some money.

    Crap, I just graduated from BYU last week. I already have a concealed carry permit but would have done it for the training. Oh well.

    First, congratulations!

    I would consider submitting the paperwork along with your last quarter/semester documentation and take the class. It is still valuable training and you don't need to worry about all the CCW paperwork since it is already completed . . . I would try it.

    I don't know anything about FBMG but I am glad they are offering training as well. It may be more doable for many of the folks that leave in Utah.

    Thanks! IT is great to be done!

    I'll try submitting info from last semester, that's a good idea. Man, I'd love to have the training.
