    Take a gander at this....I think he brings up a few valid points. One area people might disagree/agree is that he says steel cases ammo doesn't mess extractors up b/c the metal casing's metal isn't as hard as an extractor or ejector....:whistling:

    That guy has no credibility with me at all.

    I just can't take him seriously.

    Same Yeager that wanted to go to Iraq for some combat cred and got his men killed while he ran away?

    He's just like a Glock, there is a love hate relationship with him. he makes some good points but like anyone on youtube or in life not everyone is gonna like or agree with you. he can sometimes be extreme and that can also make people not like him. I like his videos and even though I may not agree with everything he says, I respect him and his long resume in the field.

    His long resume of tactically advancing to the rear while his team was taking fire?

    Do you guys have more info on this :headscratch:, I would hate to ever support anyone who would run especially if they were on our side over there. We didnt have anyone one in my squads or fire teams act like a coward over there but if there were they'd be ****** after the dust settled.

    Please tell me you didn't sit through 26 minutes of him or I'll have to stop taking you seriously:crying:

    I clicked on it to see if I got Flashplayer sorted out since I'm playing around with Chromium. As soon as he came up on screen and I saw that the video was 26 minutes, I clicked back out of it.

  16. A lot of BS comes back from downrange. I would never expect a civilian to be able to deal with the environment as well as a soldier. People come up with all sorts of stories and some may be accurate and others not.

    Many people get nervous under fire. In a training environment, it is tough to tell who will be better in dealing with it.

    Just remember, the civilians do not have the supports military units have. Often, the smart move is to fall back. They are not military fighting units and we should adjust our expectations accordingly.

    Alaska, again (for now)

    So you're saying it was ok for him to get his people killed and run away because he was a civilian? :rofl:

    Maybe he should have stayed stateside in a cubicle somewhere and not put anyone at risk of, I don't know, dying. :dunno:
     
  19. What am I supposed to see here? I watched it and can't make heads or tails out of it.
