James Yeager is a smart guy
 
James Yeager is a smart guy. Yes, I said it, and it's true. Do you allow yourself to get hacked off at stuff he says that you disagree with? If yes, James Yeager loves you. He's running a business, and he has stuff to sell. By being controversial, he gets his name out there, keeps it out there, and keeps interest in his products high.

Do 1911's really suck? Of course they don't, and James Yeager doesn't really believe that. But how many people do you think come and spend a pile money to bring their 1911's to his classes to try to prove him wrong? Probably more than you might think.

Should all guns really be Glock 19's? No, and James Yeager knows that. But by recommending the Glock 19, he is helping his classes to be successful. Glock 19's are ubiquitous. So are holsters, magazines, parts, just about anything you might need for a Glock 19 is probably available almost anywhere that guns are sold.

This means he won't lose customers at the gun store. If he recommended something else. Oh, say a Walther PPQ or a Sig 226, they may or may not have it. The customer goes in and asks for it, and the salesman says sorry, we don't have it. How about this M&P instead? No, says the customer, I HAVE to have the xxxx for this class I'm going to.

Why are you wasting so much money on that class, says the salesman? James Yeager is an idiot. We have a class right here that will teach you the same stuff for $100. In fact, one is meeting this Saturday morning....

If they go in and ask for a G19... that will almost never happen. "Well, sir, I don't have one today, but I can get you one from our other store."

When the customer gets to the class with his G19, he will have the same gun as a whole bunch of his classmates, and that will make him feel secure.

Chances are, his new G19 will run just fine and take him through the entire course with no problems. On the off chance that something does go wrong- maybe he forgot to bring his extra magazines, or something- it's likely that ether other classmates, or even Yeager's company, will have spares. If his gun breaks, spare parts will be readily available.

The customer will have a good experience and will come back again, and may even recommend it to his friends.

Meanwhile, some other guy who spends twice as much money on a new 1911 and .45 ACP ammo, but doesn't take the time to break it in, may find that his gun won't work right. He will be ridiculed by his Glock fan classmates, and be forced to finish the course with a borrowed G19. He not only will not come back, but will tell his friends to stay away.

Oh, and what about 1911 guy who wants to show Yeager up? Well, since his gun is probably well broken in, and he's fired it so much it's like an extension of his hand, his gun probably will run through the class with flying colors. He will have a great experience there and will go home and brag about it. Score another one for Yeager.

Personally? I think Yeager is pretty entertaining, and I respect his ability to sell his company. But I'd rather put my time and energy to much better use- like debating about 9mm vs. 45, or AR vs. Ak.

For some reason, that guy looks like he has BO. Never met him, he just looks stinky.

:rofl:

I agree with the OP, without the stupid comments he makes I certainly would not know his name.

Wil Ufgood 12-27-2012 18:34

"Runaway Yeager" is da man :upeyes:

Pawcatch@aol.co 12-27-2012 18:34

I don't hate him,but how is he anymore qualified to give advice on self defense more than anyone else with a similar background?

He's been a LEO in a small Tennessee town,instructor and contractor.There's a cop in my town that worked as a contractor in Iraq,but he's by no means a gun guy.

Why should I take advice from James Yeagar?

Gallium 12-27-2012 18:37

Ditto,

Who are you, and why do we need a thread on this dude?

ancient_serpent 12-27-2012 18:38

Would sooner take driving lessons from Yeager than ones about firearms.

*edit* Maj: love the sig line!

Isn't he the guy who ran away and his clients got murdered as a result? HH

ancient_serpent 12-27-2012 18:41

Almost: he's the guy that screwed up driving forward, then ran away and left a teammate to bleed out.

and to add insult to injury he blames his dead teammates for getting themselves killed in the After Action report

Is this a sales pitch or something?

I telling all of you disrespecting him and calling him a coward he gonna whip your butts......I saw the video where he offered to pay your airfare to his home so he could dare you to call him a coward to his face. That tells me all I need to now about him. :rofl:

BradD 12-27-2012 19:10

Sorry to read that he's gone downhill. I attended his precision rifle class in 2000 and thought he seemed like a good guy.

*ASH* 12-27-2012 19:12

i kid you not , until this thread i had no idea this guy existed

glock_19guy1983 12-27-2012 19:16

the guy is a complete tool, and is more qualified to teach under water basket weaving than Self Defense.
