About the Event

Meet us in the high desert of Nevada for a lot of shooting and a little exploring as we host a 4-day defensive handgun course at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the nation’s premier shooting and training facility. You will receive 4 full days of training, informal after-supper history lessons, loads of fellowship and a full day narrated excursion to Death Valley with Bill Potter—in an air-conditioned coach!

Event Highlights

4-Day Defensive Handgun Course at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute

This fast-paced and exciting course is taught by seasoned and professional law enforcement, military, and private citizen instructors to levels that far exceed law enforcement and military standards, without any bootcamp mentality or drill instructor attitudes. After your first firearm training course at Front Sight, you will leave with skills that surpass 99% of the gun-owning population! This is no exaggeration. Once you’ve completed your first course you’ll discover that you’ve become the self defense training expert among your peers, and you will know you are better prepared than 99% of all gun owners in America.

After-Supper History Talks

After supper, Bill Potter will regale us with stories regarding some of his favorite weapons, the evolution of military tactics, the history of gunpowder, and other fascinating subjects.

Death Valley Day

Death Valley is the lowest (Badwater Basin sits 282 feet below sea level), the driest (less than 2” per year), and the hottest (Furnace Creek holds the world record of 134° in 1913) National Park in the United States. We will spend the day exploring the sublime beauty of this very unique place while Bill Potter tells us about westward expansion and manifest destiny, and introduces us to a few of the colorful characters that made the West wild! No 20-mule team this time—we will be in an air-conditioned coach with plenty of cold water to go around!

An experienced historian and avid bibliophile, Bill Potter combines a lifelong study of American history with an uncommon ability to captivate audiences of all ages as he traces the providential acts of God throughout the ages. Mr. Potter has taught history in high schools and colleges, has led many tours of American and European historical sites and brings to each event a wealth of experience and knowledge. An experienced researcher and writer, Mr. Potter possesses a practical knowledge of antiquarian books, documents, and artifacts and has published several short books and has penned many articles and book reviews for publication. Bill has earned a well-deserved reputation as a man gifted in communicating the story of God’s providential hand in American history. As a father of eight children, he appreciates the necessity of passing on to the succeeding generations the richness of both our regional and national history.
