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 used to watch Yeager and then grew tired of him and unsubscribed. On the other hand in the last few days I have seen a couple of video's supporting him and saying in person he is real nice guy (funny he sounds like a rougher Trump). Take a look at SkinnyMedic's and Sootch00's video;s about him.

I'm not going to mention who on YouTube is naughty and nice, but Mr Yeager is actually a good guy.  A total gentlemen and very polite.

I say just watch everything you can and take from it what you feel is right for you.You usually can tell within the first few minutes of the video haha.I've been lucky enough to have training from some great instructors.Larry Vickers,Clint Smith at Thunder Ranch,and  a few trips to the old Blackwater to name a few.I feel that my mindset is a combination of all of my classes.So I've taken a little from here,a little from there.For example Clint Smith teaches in a more defensive posture as to where the Blackwater classes were a little more aggressive.Vickers was somewhere in the middle.I'm not a Yeagar fan but no matter the instructor yoou might be able to take a little piece you can use.Stay safe folks.

IMO YouTube videos are good for reference and entertainment, but I agree with the folks who say that they're no substitute for actually going out and getting live instruction.

I think that extends to any other sport or hobby as well.

I agree there.One of the biggest surprises for me was no light,low light situations.Most classes don't address that because there aren't too many ranges that let you do that sort of thing.No video is a replacement for that situation.The bad thing I find now is that many of the popular instructors are only doing 2 day classes.Having been to 2,3,and 5 day classes I found that it takes a day or day and a half just to get the new skill sets worked out.That being said 2 days is still better then no days.

You can gain experience shooting in low/no - light situations by shooting IDPA. A number of clubs will have low/no - light stages as part of their regular matches. Phillipsburg has them fairly often. Somerset has them occasionally. Guthsville tried one stage last year. One club I shoot at (Blue Ridge Cherry Valley) has a whole match after dark, outside.

Adios,

    • Didnt Corzine try the same smoke and mirror tax raising scheme?
    • Depends on personal preference...

      If we are talking pistol grip only, I actually prefer the Raptor grip over a traditional pistol grip nowadays. Just feels a little more comfortable. The brace setup on my TAC-14 uses a regular pistol grip, but I do have a standard grip, if need be.

      For stocks, I like something like a Magpul stock. Rather have something more inline with the receiver/barrel.

    • I have an anderson lower, new that i put together with psa upgraded internals. It has all internals polished including trigger. The only thing i havent done is put the stock on. I do have a pinned stock that can be included. Let me know if interested.

    • It's easy when people have no experience with guns so they are scared of them. My mom's always been nervous about guns. Last time she was over, my wife and I shower her our guns and my mom freaked over me having an "assault rifle". I let her hold it and then grabbed some ammo and showed her what .22lr looks like. Let her hold the Beretta and I could see the fear leaving her. It's such a silly thing to fear if you treat it with the respect it deserves.
