Back on topic: I completely disagree with the premise of the OP. All the crap he spews does NOT cause people to come to his class to prove him wrong.

It would probably attract shooters of like mind to come to his classes, so they can all basturmate while looking at Glocks and pictures of Glocks. Budget pistol types are like that.

Yeager is very controversial, and his detractors come to these threads with a prejudice. I have been called all kinds of vile crap by the cowards who won't face Yeager for no other reason than I won't criticize him. Me and a few other members here trained with Yeager when he was OPS and went to Rangemaster in Memphis. Yeager is who got a lot of us signed up here. Glock Talk always came up in his classes.

Yeager is the President, Founder, and CEO of Glock Fan Boys International. He holds the patent on Glock Kool-Aid. He doesn't say what he says as a gauntlet to 1911 fan boys. He says it because he believes it. Does controversy help his business? I don't know. Before Iraq, he was a good trainer. He was funny as hell, and a lot of fun to train with. In all honesty, I don't much like what I've been seeing from him. I don't know if there is a reason he doesn't train at Rangemaster any more, other than maybe no longer being OPS. Or maybe he does, and I just don't know it.

I don't fault Yeager for Iraq because I wasn't there. I've watched that video dozens of times, and I cannot make much out of it. I guess he was supposed to die that day.

One thing is certain though. If I have anything to say to Yeager, I'll say it to his face, instead of taking a cowards way and doing it anonymously on the internet.

It's funny how anonymous people call other people cowards, when the behavior they participate in, is the very definition of a coward.

Why don't some of you tough guys post your own video on youtube, showing your face, telling the world your name, where you live, where you work, where you can be found, and then say all this about Yeager? If you don't, YOU are a coward. I won't hold my breath.

Maybe I should challenge you to a duel?
I'll contact him and take him up on his offer. I'll be happy to call him a coward to his face if he pays my airfare.

He doesn't know **** about firearms instruction. I doubt you do either.

Why? What would I gain by that? What would it prove?

I've gone down range, and while I will never claim to be some high speed face shooter, I never ran away from my team.

I would rather die than let the soldiers I lead down. As a leader, I would certainly never want to survive the event that they didn't.

According to the AAR, Yeager did not have line of fire from the ditch.

"Ian Harris and Mark Collen, each under heavy enemy fire, were the only two individuals during the contact who attempted to suppress enemy forces. Simon Merry was continuing to try to maneuver his vehicle to a position of support to vehicle one and then two whilst Al Johnson was busily treating multiple casualties at his location with vehicle three. James Yeager was in a location at the median where he could not engage enemy forces as he did no have a line of fire from his location."

So you really don't see what's wrong? Either you didn't see the reports and full video or you have no idea what a person is actually supposed to do in that situation.

As for Yeager, he was a member here and he chose to leave, so I see no reason that takes away anybody's right to continue the conversation that was going on while he was here. Not much chance of running into him in person, but he continues to make himself an issue of public interest, at least in the training, shooting, contractor world.

I've been a driver, as well as every other position on a vehicle in convoys and patrols in Afghanistan - one thing the Army taught me that was easy to remember is, when you're the driver, you drive - as long as the vehicle will go, the driver does not get out.

Of course, he thought the vehicle would not go, or so he said, but since that was due to his own panic and forgetting he put it out of gear with the brake on, to begin with, that's a poor excuse.

Did you read the post before it? Obviously Yeager sends some kind of thrill up his leg or something. Why else would he come to his side and stick there even as the whole board, and whole shooting public denounces this clown?

(BTW Rugburn, don't expect Yeager to stick by your side... )

If you want to read an account of how that day in Iraq should have gone down, read Lone Wolfe's ambush account. A good soldier died that day. He wasn't hiding in a ditch while the rest of his unit was left to fend for themselves. He lost his life doing what he was supposed to which was trying to pull her to safety after she was wounded. If you read the account of the ambush Yeager was in, the real soldiers involved in the firefight did just that while we are able to watch him laying in a ditch not having a a clue in hell what to do except maybe soil himself.

Being in harms way and the possibility of death is a risk any soldier assumes when deployed in a warzone. He went there and left his fellow colleagues to fend for themselves when the SHTF. He failed miserably at doing his job. If he was not up for the task, he shouldn't have been there. He turned an unarmored vehicle into a sitting duck and cost people their lives because of it. Then in the report he says he ran to cover to return fire but had no clue where to shoot.

Those don't sound like the actions of a man who should be mouthing off about courage and making threats to anyone.

Why don't you check out Vicker's Tactical and read a little about the owner. Then please return to this thread and tell me that Yeager is qualified to do what he is doing.

Never met or trained with Mr. Yeager. I have trained with some of his staff. I thought the training was first rate in the two classes taught by his people. None of them seem to be there now.

See what kind of reactions you get when you disrespect people's 1911?

No real soldiers were harmed in the event referenced.

In fact... no real soldiers were even involved.

Outside-the-wire wartime contracting is literally "gambling with your life." That's why it costs so much to move people and things around on the battlefield.

If you are a KBR truck driver pushing the **** truck to an outlying FOB you are in a Mil Convoy and can be reasonably assured that all participants on your side of the attack will act appropriately... or at least to the best of their ability.

If you are a TCN truck driver moving paper plates and napkins, it is almost likely that your contract Convoy Security will put the pedal to the floor and hope your battle damaged 18 wheeler can keep up with a Nissan Trooper or Mitsubishi Pajero.

One level below that, if you are a Mobile PSD or Convoy Security contractor that is wounded on the battlefield, you'd better hope the dumbest private in the BDE is monitoring the Civilian Codan radio at least half as closely as all the other Nets he is responsible for, and that assets are available (according to your priority).

As for the actions of your peers on contact, go back and read the link in post #83. In my experience dealing with contractors on the battlefield, there are only two types- extremely high quality and extremely low quality.

The "extremely high quality" guys are those who have a professional background in gunfighting, have a personal interest in being there, and KNOW each other... I mean know everything about each other including how they will react in all situations.

The "extremely low quality" guys are those just chasing a better payout than fast food or auto repair can provide, and are usually either a thrice divorced recovering alcoholic Alabama State Trooper or just a life long loser with a personality disorder.

When the demand for contract security went way up, the standards went way down, and while the salaries went down too (a lot) the corporate fee placed on those positions often grew(!).

The good news story is that we are out of Iraq and the demand is normalized. The guys who did it before, and were successful at it, are still doing it. The guys who failed at it, or were just looking for a check or an adventure, are teaching "combat shooting" classes, fixing cars/ making fries, or crawled into a bottle and sucking up that good Obama welfare $$$.
