I had the privilige of visiting with Mr. Cooper in his home at Gunsite about 6 years ago. I asked him what he thought about Glocks and his reply was, "Throw away guns for throw away cops!". So he can be pretty dogmatic about some things. But he's not like that about everything. I mean who could picture Jeff Cooper sitting in front of his TV waiting for a certain object to appear, working the bolt, aiming and pulling the trigger!Originally Posted by Jim_Linch
I think some of the "dogma" comes from students that over apply the dogma. For example, some think that since Gunsite was founded by Cooper and he's a 1911 person, that Gunsite is dogmatic about the 1911 as "the" defense gun. That's really not true at all. It's true that that is the gun they recommend, but many of their instructors carry Glocks and Sigs. In fact, I've seen Glocks actually promoted by some of the Gunsite instructors and that doesn't seem to be frowned upon at all by Gunsite.
Anyway, I drift big time - a long winded way to say I agree Jim.
