  5. I hear you. One sight of Yeager, without the anonymity of the internet, and you'll run faster in the other direction than Yeager did running to that median. You don't have the balls to call him coward without hiding behind your internet connection. Apparently, you are too yellow to face him and say any of it to his face. But that's okay, it's the internet. That's what the internet is for.

    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. There may be a sliver of population who likes what he says, so they take his classes. Glocks are very popular, and have a rabid fan boy following. 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.

    Yep, and by the way, how's that awesomely cool Black Ops Strider Knives guy doing these days?

    You know, the one that said that 550parachord is the only suitable grip material that will not get slippery after you've bled the tango like a wild boar?

    Refer to link in post #47. Even Paul Howe disapproves of him, and he is a man of the highest caliber and is an unimpeachable authority on the topic. Case closed, in my book.

    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.

    By saying this, aren't you doing the same thing that you are accusing MAJ of doing?

    Your logic=fail.

    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... ;) )
