Looks like a bunch of hooey to me. First off what is up with the underlined language? Sounds pretty fishy to me.

Then, the below web site is an employment agency, as far as I can tell.

But, the biggest red flag, is their web site, has no substance. No principals listed, no instructors listed, no classes on the calendar,, and all the images are computer generated. I suspect a bait and switch operation here. You all can decide on where you are going to be switched to!!!

Integrity Arms COULD be a new company just getting started, having hired this agency to try to find competent staffing. They would be better off, in that case, to be who they are, not try to look like the big wigs. What's with the reference to Front Sight? Seem like that's a copyright/trademark issue if they're not aligned somehow.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.

I don't know if this is legit or not, guys. One thing I do know though, is that this ain't the want ads.

TFL Members are ambassadors to the world for firearm owners. What kind of ambassador does your post make you?

I train in earnest, to do the things that I pray in earnest, I'll never have to do.
