Handgun Training: Parts of a Handgun

Handgun training in our society today is steadily growing as one of the most sought out forms of self defense training. As the need for handgun training grows, so does the number of training providers available. One such provider is Firearms Training Institute. Now located a short distance from Las Vegas, Nevada, it was founded in 1996 by Ignatius Piazza, a former simple gun enthusiast, Front Sight has grown to offer all types of firearms training from handgun training, rifle training, shotgun training, self defense training and even defensive driving training. Front Sight will offer vacation spaces for those individuals who wish to stay in its resort located outside of Las Vegas. But no matter what type of firearm training a person seeks, or from whom, one thing is crucially important for a person to learn: the parts of a handgun.

Handguns are just like any other machine. They have parts that must be controlled by a living person. However, they also have parts that can operate without anyone making the parts operate. This is done through mishandling the firearm. A person must understand the proper ways to handle all parts of the firearm before even picking up the gun. Failure to do so can cause the gun to misfire, which in turn can cause serious injury or even death to the gun handler or another individual. The parts of a handgun is just one of the many things that are taught by firearms instructors, law enforcement professionals and the experts at Front Sight Firearlms Training Institute.

By seeking the proper training, including learning the parts of a firearm, whether it be a handgun training, rifle training or shotgun training, a person is taking the steps to ensure safety when handling the firearm.

Founder and director of Front Sight, , encourages all Americans to receive the training to not only use a handgun properly, but also the training necessary to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. It is Front Sight and Ignatius Piazza's intention to teach all willing, interested Americans in the safe use of firearms to create a populace that is able to keep itself safe and protected.
