    Have to love Buck.

  2. Ground Pounder says:

    That is 2 minutes and 22 seconds of my life I can’t get back! WTF!

  3. John says:

    I’ve trained with James. What’s the point of the post?

    • SSD says:

      Apparently, you didn’t watch the video. I’ve known Yaeger for many years and he is one wild guy. This video definitely makes an unabashed statement.

      • John says:

        No, I watched it, I just wondered what the point of posting it was. Love or hate him, James is definitely a larger than life personality. He has had some good trainers working with him, including the late Paul Gomez. I think this video was one of the ones he made as a reality tv show bio.

  4. Phil says:

    he should have invested some cash into a college fund for his kids instead of this nonsense…

    That’s a far more important responsibility towards his family.

  5. Some guy says:

    Allegedly this is a Yeager video that says it all about his commitment to safety:

  6. Ryan says:

    I never understood why preppers tell the world they have a huge stockpile of this and that. If someone wants your shit bad enough they will take it. I don’t know James so I cant comment on him.

  7. TM says:

    I would love to see an instructor like Pat McNamara or Jason Falla school this loser in a fight, a PFT, or a fucking spelling bee.

  8. John Smith says:

    Seems like a knowledgeable guy when it comes to killing, but their is no doubt this guy would be chewed up and spit back out through the farm. His attitude is awful.

    • Buck says:


      Are you nuts?

      He is nothing more than a TINY small town cop, who by being an arrogant asshole on the Internet has somehow become infamous.

      He has never killed anyone.

  9. D2 says:

    Put that hairy chested wimp slapper on top shot he’s not getting enough attention

  10. KLiP says:

    Tells children to keep a secret from friends or risk shooting them in the face,
    goes on YouTube to tell the world.

    I like a confident teacher, and all teachers must by nature have some element of narcissism, but teaching is for others and I don’t know how well Yeager can instruct a class when he’s apparently so self-absorbed.

    I fully believe that he IS the most controversial instructor out there because, by contrast, most of the other high end instructors seem very approachable and down to earth.

  11. TheTruth says:

    ERSM vs. Rte Irish? Remember the fallen that James Yeager failed.

  12. Creffilo says:

    I happen to believe the narcissism is nothing more than a strategic move for publicity. Guess what,, its working like a charm.

  13. Chris says:

    This is just an example of Yeager being Yeager.

  14. Ahhh, another instructor that is the best in the world. Hmmm, Never heard of him.

    Have a good one,

  15. Markg says:

    I can think of at least 10 instructors I would train with before this guy.

  16. Matt b4 says:

    Yeah….no, “Ive never lost a fight?” Really, you seem ro have forgotten Rte Irish. Surviving, and winning a fight are differant things ergo letting others die to save your skin. “Dont tell your friends about all the stockpile I put up on youtube” *roll eyes* and apparently a cheek to stock weld and aiming is to much trouble on his Barret… WORST instructor ever more like.

  17. Chris S says:

    Looks like someone is pitching one of those horrid reality TV shows on TLC. He should fit in with Honey Boo Boo and Swamp People nicely.

    • Random says:

      Did’nt even cross my mind but I think that is probably it because that was insanely ridiculous even for Yeager but reality tv eats shit like that and asks for more.

  18. Sayeret Metkal says:

    The more they talk the worse they suck the harder they fall…….

  19. Morden says:

    Haha, so it’s a lifestyle blah blah blah. A couple years ago he was fat as fuck haha, where was his lifestyle then? I can handle guys like him because they embarrass themselves, no one has to do it for them. His demeanor was totally unproffessional, if I was looking for a hired gun I wouldn’t hire him. And as far as his end of the world prep scenario, completely attrition based, which fat lazy people usually prescribe to. A manuever plan makes more sense. If he was so committed to the lifestyle were is his tabs his EGA or trident? Paint baller who wondered into a gun store, then got hired by a back woods l.e. agency, lied on his resume when pmcs would hire anyone with a boy scout merit badge, got shot at once or twice and is now the baddest mfer alive. God I love the Internet, before it came along entertainment like this u had to pay for.

  20. PC says:

    Jaeger is actually a very down to earth humble guy this video is more over the top than he truly is. Watch some of his youtube videos, he would definitely be someone I would like to shoot/train with and later enjoy a beer or two with!

  21. banner man says:

    Does he do a course in tactical ditch hiding?

  22. .308 says:

    all I can say is MERICA! I burst out laughing with the “do you want me to shoot your friends in the face?”

  23. Ben says:

    I’m sure this dude used to be on WWF.

  24. James "RunAway" Yeager says:

    all that tough talk and skater beard isn’t going to bring back his dead teammates. The fool left his parking brake on and ran around like a chicken with his head cut off. “Train with the worst….guranteed to die first.”

  25. L says:

    Never lost a gunfight? I have a video to show him. What a tool.

  26. BrettW says:

    My personal opinion is that this gives our entire industry a horrible exposure to the general public on so many levels… the industry side, the training side and from an overall quick snap of what we all do to make our lives safer and the lives of our loved ones safer. Whether we serve, have served or work in any compactly to contribute in a constructive manner – this affects you! Our public face should promote positive ideas and this does the exact opposite.

    I don’t know this guy; I really don’t want too. People have to realize that our industry is much bigger than a loud mouth that can’t complete an educated sentence without cursing.

  27. Dan says:

    I understand this is his personality, but he took it a little too far and stepped on his dick in my opinion.

  28. Destriate Black says:

    I was rolling in Baghdad on the 20th of April 05, I knew Chris “Camel” Ahmelman back in the day and I would dearly like to hope that James is parting some form of knowledge to offset that fact that he let three of his comrades down in battle on that day. If I had failed so greatly I would be devoting the rest of my life to doing some good.

    Chris Ahmelman
    James Hunt

  29. wyoming grunt says:

    guys a total douche, never been aware or done anything. Wannabees only apply

  30. Ho Tac Tactical says:

    Psssh. This fella Yeager has obviously never heard of Ho Tac Tactical.

  31. Zulu6 says:

    Oh Snap! Now I have watched and seen it ALL. The BEST instructor in the world? He was a cop, can barely speak English and was a VERY VERY too much horrbile no good bad PSD! WTF Dudes! It frickin’ Gunny Boo Boo meets Band Camp!!

  32. scump says:

    The James “Runaway” Yeager video clearly shows him as a failure and a fraud. All this talk in front of the camera about his extensive training and how bad ass he is, when his moment came to him he showed the whole world (on video) how much he sux. Fail on top of fail
