    I saw the video. I think Yeager is an a-hole & d-head. I told him that on YouTube and wouldn't have any problems telling him that to his face. I can't stand all of is f bombs. I hate his stance on OC and his dangerous range practices. I also think he is way over rated.

    But, I agree with him on almost everything when it comes to tactics & mindset.

    You, my friend are a victim of an Ad Hominem logical fallacy. Its internet debating for the inept 101, when you can't refute, defend or offer a valid rebuttal simply call the other person names. Your arguments, for example, can't be valid via you being a "fanboy". You can't be taken seriously because you're a "troll". He can't debate your argument so he tries another avenue to discredit you. Debating is a discipline the same as martial arts, for example, is a discipline. Every discipline has a tool box of essential skills that the practitioner must master if he is going to perfect his craft. Martial Arts has strikes, moves and holds to execute as a means to go on the offensive or defensive. In debating, you have logical fallacies that you can use as a means to go on the offensive or defensive. Recognizing these fallacies and calling your opponent on them can prevent you from hours of endless debating.

    The most effective debaters do not allow themselves to get side tracked by personal attacks. They zero in on the point and stay there until their opponent has to submit by default.

    I'd never heard of Yeager or watched his videos until I saw his "call you out" vid hear on DC. Needless to say, I hopped on Youtube and watched a bunch of them.

    Your a troll? Do you live under a bridge?

    Seriously, you can't take everything on the net to heart...I found that out a long time ago. Sometimes you just have to let somethings pass. Works for the internet and gas.

    Sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. It's unfortunate that being a part of this type of interaction sometimes results in these types of experiences. I've found that the DC community seems to be a little more mature and friendly than some of the other online communities I've been involved in, both firearm and non-firearm related.

    I think calling anyone a coward from the safety of your own living room is...well, it's cowardly.

    Are you allowed to share a link to the thread/video that this is in reference to?
    The problem with gun control is that drugs are already illegal.

    The world is full of mental midgets. Which is why I carry a gun. Someday that's guy's gonna snap. Hopefully there will be an armed good guy around when he goes off so he isn't allowed to perpetrate a mass murder in a shopping mall or someplace else. No doubt he'll pick a gun free zone when he does go off. Isn't that the cowards way.

    For the record, I don't much care for Yeager's persona, but I watch his video's from time to time and learn some great things after sorting through the chaff.

    Chances are the dude lives in his mommy's basement and is addicted to porn. You asked a simple question, he has zero experience, so he troll and banned you. Take it as a compliment and move on.

    @tacman605 - Don't let fools like that bother you. Some of us know you have the BTDT shirt and given that your interwebs opponent resorted to throwing attacks and name calling versus responding with logical discourse, I would just ignore the fool.
    If you've asked honest questions and expected honest answers back, yet received the answer of an ignorant blowhard fool, you've effectively identified the truthful answer.

    Of course you could always find him, pull his shirt over his head and play practice dummy with it.
