Front Sight’s Monday Blog: May I Borrow a Dollar?

May 21st, 2012  

“May I borrow a dollar?”

“Hey, man, do you know what time it is?”

“Do you know where the post office is?”  

These are all questions that are used by thugs to distract you so they can get close enough to attack you by surprise.   

If you ever have a stranger approach you with questions like these, you should immediately shift your state of alertness and preparedness to Condition Orange.

If you do not know what “Condition Orange” is, then you should take a course at Front Sight to learn the Color Code of Mental Awareness we teach. Condition Orange is where you mentally ramp up from being relaxed and alert to recognizing a potential threat and preparing to avoid it or defend against it.

Watch this news video that shows exactly what happens when a criminal asks a distracting question to get you to reach for your wallet, or look at your watch, or look away to point out directions… and then moves in for the surprise attack…

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

The way to handle a situation like this, as we teach at Front Sight, is to understand that when somebody you do not know approaches you like this, you must take control of the situation BEFORE they are on top of you, by commanding them to STOP RIGHT THERE!   

If any questions are asked, you do not take your eyes off the potential threat as you answer their question and move into a position of greater control and advantage.

If they fail to obey your STOP RIGHT THERE command, then they have demonstrated bad intent and you immediately make your evasive maneuver to leave the scene, or evasion is not possible, you take strong defensive action.   

NEVER let them get close to you by falling for the “May I have a dollar?” question or similar ploys.

Better yet, come out and take a course with us at Front Sight to learn the Color Code of Mental Awareness and how to handle yourself in a situation like the one in this week’s video.

EVEN BETTER, let me make it unbelievably easy for you to become a Front Sight Lifetime Member and position yourself to not only take a course, but to train regularly and for the rest of your life at Front Sight.

HOWEVER, please allow me to warn you that you only have one shot at this.

I am going to make it so incredibly easy for you this week that if you do not take advantage of grabbing a Lifetime Membership, there is just NO WAY I could ever make it easier. And once I release some spectacular news I have been working on, there is NO WAY I could ever offer this again.

So please, take advantage of this special opportunity NOW.


Well, I recently gave all our lifetime members the opportunity to upgrade to the highest level, Diamond Membership, by trading in their current memberships.

The response was dramatic and I now have their trade-in memberships in my possession.

I could simply re-release the trade-in memberships at their regular prices, but since they have already been paid for once, I am going to reward you for your loyalty to Front Sight’s mission by passing the trade-in memberships on to you at a price that you simply cannot ignore and would be crazy not to jump on immediately, plus the special bonus I have added will knock your socks off!

So here is what I have for you…

It really will blow you away and take away ANY reason for not becoming a Front Sight Lifetime Member.

And the Special Bonus I am going to throw in will make it unbelievable easy for you grab Lifetime Memberships for every member of your family and all your friends too!

So, it is time for YOU to become a Front Sight Liberty Tree, LIFETIME MEMBER!

Here is What You Get With Your Front Sight Liberty Tree Lifetime Membership…


    Why would you want to attend the Two Day and Four Day Defensive Handgun, Two Day Tactical Shotgun, and Two Day Practical Rifle Courses repeatedly as often as you like for as long as you like?

    Well how great do you want to become with ALL the different weapons you own? Each time you attend with the same weapon you will be training to continue to improve the balance between speed and accuracy. Each time you attend with a new, different weapon you will be training to become “one with that weapon” and master the ability to use it as an extension of your will. There is an endless combination of courses you can attend with all the different weapons you own.

    You also get…

  • Guaranteed Placement in Your Courses with Two Weeks Advance Enrollment… No worries about whether you can “get into a course.” As a member your spot is guaranteed. Just fax or e-mail your Application for Training within two weeks of the course date and you are in! Like everything else we offer, no other school can offer you such flexibility with your scheduling!
  • Invitation to Annual July 4th Lifetime Members’ Reunion Celebration… So you and your family can celebrate July 4th each year in a manner that makes our Founding Fathers proud!
  • Name etched in First Family Monument… So generations from now, your grandkids will know you were part of the patriotic group who built Front Sight!
  • Password to access exclusive and restricted First Family areas of web site and e-mail forum… Now you can positively converse with all of our like-minded First Family members!
  • First Family Card and Hat… Identifying you to all students and staff as a loyal and supportive patriot assisting us in positively changing the image of gun ownership in our lifetime!

The value of attending just ONE, Front Sight Four Day course is $2,000 and the value of a Two Day course is $1,000. I am giving you the unbelievable opportunity to secure a Liberty Tree Lifetime Membership that will allow you to attend our 4 most popular courses as many times as you wish for the rest of your life!

If you attend each course under your Liberty Tree Lifetime Membership just once, the value is $5,000. Attending all your Liberty Tree courses multiple times over your lifetime pushes the lifetime value of your membership to $10,000, $20,000 or more!

I created Front Sight and the Lifetime Membership so you, your family and your fellow Americans would have a world class facility, top notch instructors, a vast curriculum of courses that meet or exceed law enforcement and military standards, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, offered in a financial manner that anyone who truly wants the Comfort of Skill at Arms can obtain.

I have kept pure and uncompromising Front Sight’s purpose to positively change the image of gun ownership in our lifetimes by training responsible citizens to levels that exceed law enforcement and military standards and I WANT YOU TO BE A Front Sight Liberty Tree LIFETIME MEMBER so when the Spectacular News is released you can benefit most from it!

So what’s the cost for you to become a special, Liberty Tree Lifetime Member?

Choose ONE Payment Plan:

____ 60 monthly credit card payments of $20 for a total cost of $1,200


____ 36 monthly credit card payments of $30 for a total cost of $1,080 (You Save $120)


____ Single payment of $250 (You Save $950)

That’s Right! As little as $20 per month or a single payment of only $250.

At these prices, you can sit back, smiling and relaxed as a Front Sight Lifetime Member, knowing that you can take advantage of your membership at any time for the rest of your life, and after JUST YOUR FIRST CLASS, you have already received MORE than the value that what you paid for your lifetime membership.


Here’s a SPECIAL BONUS for the FIRST 500 Who Purchase With a Single Payment!

When you purchase this special Liberty Tree Lifetime Membership offer by making a single payment of $250, I will give you a SECOND Liberty Tree Lifetime Membership that you can sell or transfer to anyone who is not yet a lifetime member! (Yep, this is a way for you to recoup ALL your costs NOW while bringing us another great member just like you!)

But you must act fast because this Special Bonus is only good for the First 500 who take advantage of my personal efforts to help you become a special, Liberty Tree Lifetime Member before I release the Spectacular News…

WHY am I doing this? As I explained above, I am rewarding you for your loyalty and know that you will return my generosity to you, TEN FOLD to Front Sight with all the great citizens you refer to us over your lifetime.

HOW can I do this? As I explained above, I have already been paid in full for these memberships. They are trade-ins.
