    Unhappy Jeff Cooper, the Colt 1911's best friend, passed ealier today

    John Dean "Jeff" Cooper (10 May 1920 - 25 September 2006 )

    "Jeff" Cooper is recognized as the father of what is commonly known as "The Modern Technique" of handgun shooting, and considered by many to be the world's foremost expert on the use and history of small arms. Cooper is a former Marine Lt. Colonel who served in World War II and in Southeast Asia during the Korean War. In addition to his expertise in firearms, he has been a history instructor, philosopher, adventurer, and author. He is also known as "the Guru."

    In 1976 Cooper founded the American Pistol Institute (API, also known as "Gunsite") in northern Arizona to train law enforcement and military personnel, as well as law-abiding civilians. He sold the firm in 1989 but continued living on the ranch. He was well-known for his cogent and thoroughly researched advocacy of large caliber handguns for personal defense, especially the 1911 Colt.
