Yeager

35 posts in this topic

Like 2 years ago my favorite videos were a guy from TN who did gun reviews from his backyard compound.  And could hit an 80 yard gong with a hand gun.  The other guy was a cranky fat guy from Philly who seemed very blue collar relatable and did gun and gear reviews from his basement.  Again, seemed very knowledgeable.   Back then i thought Yeager was a kooky radical.  Then I discovered this Bloovman guy and he was really good discussing training with Sentinel Concepts guy.  But in prolly the last 6 months maybe it’s YouTube sensorship but all three of those channels have gone to shit and I found myself watching Yeager out of desperation.  And you know what?  I like it.  It’s changing my mindset

”you competition guys practice for speed, my students shoot for stress”.    “You guys can target practice all you want to hit little red dot, but I want my guys to hit a head shot from 25 yards.  Yes a head shot. These fucking psycho killers will be more and more wearing armor you gotta learn to take head shots”

i guess two years ago I would have laughed at that but now I feel like I’m done thinking holster draw and 3 on the plate at 15 yards or whatever with shot timer.  My next goal is a medium pace head shot at 25.   Boy I hope my glasses are up to date.

Fuck Yeager.

There are plenty of better YouTube channels to watch than his tactical band camp garbage.

Keep in mind a lot of big names - especially prior military - stopped making videos because ISIS and other terror orgs were also using them to train their people.

Try searching for videos by/featuring:

Frank Proctor

Kyle Lamb/Viking Tactics

Kyle Defoor

Jeff Gonzales/Trident Concepts

Primary & Secondary

Dave Spaulding/Handgun Combatives

Ernest Langdon

Ron Avery

Trigger Time TV

John "Shrek" McPhee/Sherrif of Bagdad

Aaron Bareuga/Guerilla Approach

William Petty/Centrifuge Training

Travis Haley

Pat MacNamara/TMACS

Better than watching videos, go out there take some of their classes. NJ had had a lot of good trainers coming around lately.

I'd also add Scott Jedlinski aka Jedi of Modern Samurai Project and Bill Blowers of Tap Rack Tactical to that list.  Both are well-regarded instructors who have no qualms slaying sacred cows.

If you're a female knife maker he will send you unsolicited dick pics, does that count?

If one of your instructors nd’s through a truck an shed , by tactical stomping on his pistol, does that count?

MW Agreed. Bill and Jedi are both on Primary and Secondary regularly.

Funny, we can all talk shit on him.  But many here, and in this thread, still watch his videos and sub to his channel.   I do

No way. No how.

He won't get a dime from me.

YouTube is entertainment.  Yeager is entertainment.  He is actually a nice guy.  Now, there are other YouTube personalities who are total dicks but seem like O.K guys on screen.

I took a class with Dave Spaulding a few months ago after stumbling across him on Social Media.  He teaches pistol classes exclusively as that's what most of his training is in. He was also an MP5 instructor for H&K but I'm guessing that would be a pretty low enrollment class unless he was providing extras. ;) Great guy, great instructor and he's got some great videos.

May I add Mike Seeklander and Rob Leatham to your list. Also Travis Haley is a good guy but there is a video floating around where he has an ND - nobody's perfect

    • This is a parlor trick, not training for a gunfight - unless you are fighting a bowling pin that doesn't move while you also stand still. Yes, there is absolutly an instinctive part to gunfighting, but it's isn't point shooting. It's instinctively evaluating your sight picture and determining if it is good enough to hit or not while being cognitively aware of your threat, your  backstop, the foreground, and everything else in between. The evaluation of your sights becomes instinct through training that breeds procedural memory. The situational awareness comes from being able to fight through stress. Through training you should strive to reach the 4th level of achievement when running the gun - unconcious competence. Sight alignment, sight picture, reloads, manipulating the safety, malfunction clearing, admin functions and movement with muzzle awareness should be on autopilot freeing up what little ability you have to actually think under stress for the big decision - shoot or no-shoot, communicate, and environmental discrimination (discerning cover, concealment, and positions of advantage). I have talked to many folks that have been in gunfights and I have been trained by some of the best gunfighters alive. They all say the same thing - if you don't use your sights you don't get hits. These are not guys that were involved in a single incident and survived. This is from men that make their living carrying guns and putting bad people on the ground. They all stress the same thing use your sights. When shooting at another person, the only thing that tells you where your rounds are going is your sights. There is no berm, no neat black hole in a sheet of white paper. No ring of steel or bowling pin falling over. There is no spray of blood or chunks of meat flying. If you are lucky, your target will react - a flinch or wince, or maybe the targets shirt will puff out for an instant . If you are really lucky they will stagger or fall, but even those aren't definite indicators of even a peripheral hit, let alone a solid one. Maybe they tripped, maybe they are diving for cover. The only way to know if you are getting hits is to note the position of your sights relative to your target when you break the shot. Evaluate your intervention and reapply force as appropriate and necessary.
    • Jeff Cooper didn't believe in point shooting.  He believed in a "flash sight picture" which is about what you're talking about.  I also agree with Cooper that if you're properly trained, when the time comes "the target will be large, the range short, and you'll have plenty of time".  
    • I've been familiar with Lesniak for some time.  I've never heard of him supporting anything that wasn't liberal/progressive/socialist/communist dogma. I'm not interested in hunting. I also have nothing against it.  I agree with @RichP even trophy hunting has its place.  If nothing else it throws thousands of dollars into a local economy.  Rest assured if you go to Africa to hunt a lion, giraffe, elephant, hippo, or anything else that meat is eaten.  
    • Yes, that’s a good explanation.

    • Target shooting means you squeeze the trigger when you have a clear sight picture. Combat shooting means you press the trigger when you have an acceptable sight picture.   Of course, in some cases, sights are optional.
