I’m glad she came to her senses. The article is hilarious, I pasted an excerpt below, but you should really read the whole thing:
And, contrary to popular belief, Tennessee isn’t going to sit back, sipping moonshine through the gap where their front teeth used to be, and let Uncle Jim get away with shooting someone for calling him a coward. If members of rival gangs make a contract to duel and one prevails, the clear result is that the winner gets to do time in prison for homicide or attempted homicide (depending on your definition of “winning”). Same deal with The Yeagermeister. To argue that the state is going to find itself in the harsh spotlight of internet scrutiny and do nothing about one of their residents shooting at an internet troll would be crazy. Especially a tactical law enforcement firearms trainer who has decided to respond to petty name-calling by murdering a civilian.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the whole Buck Yeager going off the deep end debacle, you can catch up HERE and HERE. Make sure you read the comments, because they chronicle what was happening on YouTube at the time, and are pretty damn funny.
To date no one wants to sign Buck Yeager’s contract (not that I blame them). I’ve been getting emails from a couple guys who have been exchanging emails with Yeager, and I can smell the testosterone through the screen… shit is going to get real if someone shows up and surprises him by the sound of it.
Well there you have it… Until now the threats were not so thinly veiled. In his own words, he will flat out murder you if you call him a coward.
Like I said before this internet stuff is serious business.
I wonder if he knows he’s only going to get trolled 1000x harder than ever before since he’s acting like this?
If this nonsense is helping his business as much as he lets on that it is, then good for him. As far as I’m concerned, if people think learning anything from this guy (besides how not to act) is a good idea, then they deserve him.
Uh yea… I’m not touching this one. I’m sure he’s had to delete a million comments considering his heavily criticized history regarding vehicle ambushes. I mentioned before I don’t have an opinion on those events… I wasn’t there and the video sucks.
James Yeager’s generosity and the genesis of a new meme:
His offer at 1:55 :
If you are a wounded warrior that has been discharged from the military and you are missing limbs or whatever you got going on. First of all thank you for your service… I am going to train you for free. Tactical Response is here for you even when Wounded Warrior is not.
That is such an amazingly generous offer… It has really been difficult not to like Yeager recently.
As much as I enjoyed the Buck Yeager meme, I am giving it a rest for the time being. Sure I may bring it back, but I think this good guy Yeager one needs to get some air for a while.

You serious? Resting the folding stock on your forehead while shooting an UZI upside down? Wow…. so impressive *eye roll*. I’m surprised he didn’t send that camera man down range, seeing as it’s so safe.
I’ve never watched an episode of this show, because after seeing and making fun of the trailer I assumed my time was better spent doing pretty much anything else. Looks like I was right.
Interesting that his token shoulder roll seemed to be absent. Maybe he doesn’t get as nervous when the camera attention isn’t 100% on him?
Trolling definitely is the way to get some good free publicity in any industry.
