I've never been a fan of James Yeager. Remember, Tex (I just F'ing shot myself) Grebner, he's a James Yeager grad and highly recommends his classes. Should tell you something.
I don't think that's really fair. I'm sure he shot himself because he was doing something he was taught not to. Cause' I know he teaches the same gun safety as everyone else.
But saying that the photographer in the video i posted is safe? I don't know any trainers in the classes i've taken that would call the above video safe.
I don't see what James Yeager had to so with it. You can teach a dumbass all the gun safety you know but in the end, he is still a dumbass.
Candace, the Tex part is a coincidence and was for fun, but the photographer in the video above is James' and here is a quote from James "putting someone infront of the firing line makes people safer"
And the idiot does not even have on body armor...not that it would do any good as his head is at trajectory level...I shoot live fire footage, but would never even think about doing this...pure stupidity.
After watching some of his vids I cringe when I see/hear people talk about him.
Ha! I didn't see that.
What's amazing is that not a one of the people on the firing line objected to this absurdity.
Where are the hits on target for the two firing next to the photo guy? Also don't see any dirt kicking up for the one on the right.
10 seconds in you can see the gun cycle with guy to the left of the photographer and about 30 seconds in you can see the guy on the right shooting (smoke and recoil)
and at the last 2-3 seconds you can see the gun cycling with the guy on the right
~20 seconds in if you look over the photographers right shoulder, you can see dirt kicked up from the shooter on the right shooting.
I don't really see it but that may be do to resolution on my screen... Jackassery for sure tho.
Ok I see dirt to the far right... Just not from the shooters immediately adjacent the cameraman.
