    Well as a former LEO with 20 Years experience, I can say his comments and his attitude are a JOKE!

    The guy is a horse's ***. I've sent him some choice words on a couple occasions.

    He only posts the positive comments though.

    I don't think 1911s suck. I shot a Wilson Combat CQB this afternoon and enjoyed it thoroughly. I am much more familiar with Glocks, though. I've been shooting Glocks around 18 years now. I'm just familiar with them and comfortable with them. Once I practiced more with a 1911, especially one like I shot today, I'm sure I would feel just as comfortable with 1911s as I would Glocks.

    He lost all creditability when he talked about the "1911" not holding a lot of "bullets". If he was who he said he was he would not use the word bullet when referring to ammunition or rounds.
    As for a 1911 that works correctly once again he has no idea what he is talking about. Using the term 1911 as a blanket statement when talking about a platform that is made by many different manufactures also clues me in on his ignorance.
    Don't get me wrong I love Glocks but I also love Colt Government Models both of which are reliable sidearms.
    Another mistake is when he said the 1911 was not originally designed with the grip safety, incorrect it was not originally developed with the thumb safety. Also the original 1911 came with a flat MSH.
    Tolerance stacking can be an issue with anything that is mass produced.

    I keep watching his videos. I honestly feel for the guy. Something is eating at him. He says some stuff that I think is helpful. He did post another video about "good" 1911's. Even a broken watch...

    *In mickey mouse voice*

    "B..B..B..B...But, he's been in combat environments for over 20 years! And he's wearing a super macho t-shirt!"

    Anyway, I stopped watching around the time he started *****ing about ammo capacity. Does a Colt Python or a Ruger Security Six suck too because it has low capacity? No. It's chambered in 357. Magnum. A very versatile round, whether you're defending yourself from a decent sized animal or a human.

    Personally, I've been shooting 1911's of several different brands since I was about 10, and still continue to this day. They'll always be an American classic for me.

    My old Kimber has been flawless. It is my reference to determine if a shooting problem is me or a new gun. They are the sweetest shooting of all.

    I carry something else for other reasons.

    The Kimber TLE II was the first handgun I ever fell in love with. I was about 11 and we rented it for the day at Iron Sights gun range in Oceanside, CA.

    Too bad I would've had to mow about 100 lawns at that age to afford one. :supergrin: :wavey:

    Yeager isn't conceited.....he's CONVINCED. I regularly read his site's forums. Kinda like seeing a car wreck. You know it's coming, but you can't help watching.

    A pathetic, hopeless plea in hopes people will forget about his
    "Running Man" stint.

    in all fairness, running from a gun fight is best if able, unless its leaving somebody behind.

    what were the circumstances to his running from a gun fight?
