Word on the street is that one of FTL's advertisers is broke and has no assets.  Multiple lawsuits involved.

Anyone know more?

I'm on Front Sight's mailing list and it appears to me that they are selling hard, but that they are not broke.  They've been growing every year, not shrinking.  They seem like a good company, and I really want to take one of their pistol classes, but I don't have the money for it.

My understanding is that Front Sight is a Scientology front group.

They can worship lizards and pasta all they want, if the offer is legitimate.

They always seemed sketchy to me.

I remember when they tried to pre-sell the condos. Are they still doing that?

Guess they're trying to build a full scale military compound/fort type community?

they do provide training and so they do indeed provide some value in return for your investment

however the old saying is still true: a fool and his money are soon parted

and...

cut off their water and supplies, surround them...and you've got WACO all over again...

(disclosure: I am a life member of Front Sight, the National Rifle Association, and the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance...amongst many others...non-disclosed...)

Enjoy!

But... I thought he was a millionaire patriot.

Offering training for pennies on the dollar.

Giving away free guns.

He is.  It's a business plan, they get you into it and then you go back and spend thousands of more dollars for more training at their facility.

Anyways I got another e-mail from them saying they are hiring.  So I doubt that they are going bankrupt.  In fact with the whole gun scare I think they're probably doing more business than ever.

Back in 1999 I took their 1-day sub-machine-gun class.

It was worth every penny. Airfare, hotel, everything.

I, too, would have spent several thousands at Front Sight if I had that money to spend. I know some dot-com boom types who did indeed do that and they also have said it was well worth it.

If I could fund a "Front Sight New Hampshire", I would do it in a heartbeat.

No doubt the current down-turn is effecting subscribers to Front Sight just as it's effecting everyone.

I feel the same way.  As long as there is no Jim Jonesisk cult joining requirement.  When I told my partner/manthing about the offer he was extremely interested.  It might be his birthday / Christmas / Fathers day gift for the year and I bet he won't complain.
