Front Sight is Now Owned by PrairieFire Nevada

AzCDL recently received word from PrairieFire Nevada that, as part of the bankruptcy settlement for Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Pahrump, NV, PrairieFire is now the owner and operator of Front Sight. Dr. Ignatius Piazza no longer has any ownership stake in the facility nor any management responsibilities.

If you have enjoyed the annual AzCDL training trips to Front Sight or have a Front Sight membership, you will be interested in the information below from PrairieFire.

After going through US Bankruptcy Court, PrairieFire has completed its acquisition of Front Sight. The facility is now under completely new management and ownership.

As a legacy Front Sight member, we at PrairieFire Nevada are excited to welcome you, share our vision, and discuss our plans for your new Home for American Shooting.

The Front Sight facility in Pahrump, NV remains open today as we begin our four-month transition plan. During this transition period, the pre-existing training classes will continue for all legacy Front Sight members under the recent fee structure and online scheduling. Sign up today at

We will formally launch the PrairieFire Nevada brand at our Grand Opening in mid-April 2023. We will unveil our three core offerings and open the membership program at that time. As a legacy Front Sight member, we will be offering you a new PrairieFire Frontier membership at no cost for two years.

PrairieFire Nevada will center around world-class training, with the exclusive Q Academy curriculum, thrilling Specialty Shooting Experiences, designed by elite military veterans, and a friendly Competition Series open to all levels of shooters. Early next year we will share more details on our programs, membership plans, and how you can enjoy many other benefits.

Until then, we encourage you to learn more here.

We are building the new Home for American Shooting. This home is for you, our valued members.

Is Ignatius Piazza in any way involved with the Front Sight or PrairieFire Nevada business?
No. Front Sight is under completely new management and ownership.

Is my membership the exact same as it was before under Front Sight ownership?
As a part of the US Bankruptcy Court proceedings, all former membership were officially ended. Your current membership, while similar in many respects, is technically a new membership. If you had a Front Sight membership, then you are a member today. You have access to the Front Sight facility in Pahrump, NV. You can currently sign up for pre-existing Front Sight courses still being offered and enjoy many of the same benefits.

Are Front Sight Bucks, Coins, Gifted Memberships, and other similar Front Sight benefits still valid?
No. As a part of the US Bankruptcy Court proceedings all those and similar features were voided.

Does my legacy account information still work at
Yes. Your login credentials are still active at Members can sign up for courses through that site as usual. The voided features (e.g., bucks, coins etc.) have been removed from member accounts per the direction of the US Bankruptcy Court. They can no longer be used to purchase products or services at Front Sight.

When can new members join?
In early 2023 we will launch our PrairieFire Nevada membership program. At that time information will be provided for how new members can join. All legacy Front Sight members will be offered a PrairieFire Frontier Membership for two years at no cost.

What is the current fee structure?
For the time being, the current fee structure will remain in place for the time being which is a Daily Rate of $100 for Legacy Front Sight Members and $200 for Non-members.

Why will PrairieFire Nevada be formally launched in early 2023?
PrairieFire has taken over operations of the former Front Sight facility in Pahrump, Nevada. Now granted its initial access to the business, PrairieFire will implement a four-month transition plan. This interim period will be necessary for conducting critical tasks before formally launching PrairieFire Nevada. Until then, we are pleased to continue offering Legacy Front Sight members many of the pre-existing training courses and benefits.

What are some of the long-term plans for PrairieFire Nevada?

The development of PrairieFire Nevada is a long-term activity. Future phases will include further range development; introduction of additional guns ranges; a member's club house; gun storage and gunsmithing services; dining options, and eventually, lodging via its sister company, Stagecoach Outpost.

Stagecoach Outpost plans to invest heavily in the location's real estate, lodging, and hospitality assets. Our vision is to establish Stagecoach Outpost as the American destination for those who want a bold, adventure-seeking lifestyle. Stagecoach residents and guests will be able to live the outdoor experience while enjoying modern amenities and an assortment of housing options that cater to all types of adventure seekers.
