I can't believe someone is going to sit downrange while people are firing guns at the target a few feet away from them. Seriously.
And this guy is supposed to be a trainer. I disagree with his philosophy very much.

Pretty stupid, but ,,,Oh well.
The last sentence in the article summed it up well,
Maybe he’s not aware, but most camera’s come with remotes now that you can trigger the shutter with the press of a button. Life is cheap I guess
I equate this to something like bungee jumping, or sky diving.
Yeah yeah, its supposed to be perfectly safe, but people have died doing it, which is needless.
I can die on the freeway going to work, but unless I want to live at work with my family in tow, I HAVE to drive there.
I do not need to do something inherently dangerous, just for the sake of thrillseeking.
These guys are one stage and trying to stand out in the crowd of personal defense trainers, by doing this, IMHO.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Very dangerous. Those BG silhouettes are entirely to close for the students to be spending all that time squinting down their sightlines. Point-and-shoot, folks, point-and-shoot.

Not sure what was worse, the video or him trying to explain the video for being dumb.
Guns are safe stupid, its the idiot behind the trigger that isn't and in this case I see a whole pack of stupids in their native enviroment.
There is no way i'd be gassed by someones gun intentionally, Don't care how good of a shot you are.
Wow! That goes against all survival rules and instincts... Why would anyone risk it all just to show how "courageous" they are.
I hope his wife has a large insurance policy on him... If he is going to risk it all might as well get a great pay off!

Yeah, we pretty well ripped this up, right here on the Forum, when it came to light. Just an example of idiocy.

Isn't this the same guy with the all guns should be glocks video. He is either really enamored with himself and thinks all these things he does are right or he is going to an extreme to get his name out there, maybe both makes no sense to me.

They cameraman agreed to it and none of the students said no, so Yeager isn't the only idiot there. If it was Yeager taking the pics, then hey it's his company and his class so go for it, but using another person is pretty weak.
