Buck Yeager On Why He Disabled YouTube Comments

I knew this was going to be good when I saw the title:

This guy needs an internet life coach that can school him on counter-trolling.  Needless to say he’s doing it wrong.

I really don’t blame him for disabling the comments, as he’s trying to run a business and doesn’t need the comments filled up with people telling him he’s an idiot and possibly swaying other people’s decisions.

3:32 – “Just like with terrorists, I don’t negotiate with haters” – ***extreme eye roll*** but I truly hope Buck knows I don’t hate him.  If people find out about his classes through ENDO and decide to train with him, great.  If they find out about him and decide they don’t like him, and don’t want to train with him I won’t lose any sleep over that either.

I have lots of other content I could post instead, but I find a lot of his vids entertaining so i’ll continue to post those if I have something to say about them.

Why don’t we just find this Yeager guy and film ourselves beating the shit out of him? It’ll totally break his spirit and maybe convince him to leave the internet alone. C’mon we outnumber him, like, one hundred thousand to one! We can do this guys! I’ll bring the lead pipes and 4 foot long purple rubber dildos!


dave w October 2, 2012 at 01:47 am

why do you have so many 4 foot long purple rubber dildos?


Poppy October 2, 2012 at 12:06 pm

That’s beside the point! Let’s beat up Yeager! Who’s with me!?


Poppy October 5, 2012 at 12:45 am

Seriously? No one? Are you trying to tell me that not ONE person here wants to help me hold Yeager down and repeated slap him in the face with a lubed up, purple penis-analogue that’s the size of a small child?

I guess Yeager was right, you guys are all pussies.


Diarrhea cha cha cha October 2, 2012 at 06:23 am

So now you’re a homosexual assaultive hertrophobe.


AK™ October 2, 2012 at 03:27 am

If I had to spend any amount of money towards a class on firearms..I’d go with Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch.

Clint’s no youtube star/internet celebrity..he just trains people on shooting.

I think I’d rather listen to nutnfancy than go to yeager’s class..but then again I might just buy more ammo and go to my range in my field and burn through rounds and barrel rifling instead.


elephantrider October 2, 2012 at 04:50 am

Sorry to see this happen, but there are always video responses to J.Y.’s BS. See Military Arms Channel’s response to ‘Bullpups Suck’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPqTrYwQ5G8

The terrorist analogy is weak at best. If you don’t negotiate with terrorists, then what do you do with them?… Run away and avoid the conflict? Because that’ what’s he’s essentially doing now.

If the haters are your best advertising, then why block the comments? I guess it’s because you are already so successful you don’t need anymore exposure or advertising. If attracting the haters is your best marketing/adversting tool, isn’t that just being a professional troll?

If you don’t have time to moderate the comments, then just let the comments stand without moderating them. You know James, just like all of the trainers that you take classes from and name drop all of the time? All those trainers don’t have problems with swarms of haters commenting on their Youtube videos, or at least they don’t acknowledge them. If the negative comments really don’t bother you then let them stand as is.

Rock on James, with your Smedium t-shirts, Spike’s Trash guns, Trollish Youtube videos, internet tough-guy attitude, and a bunch of other annoying shit I don’t have time to type. Why in the world would anyone pay to take a class from this turd when there are so many classes out there that are actually good?


That Guy October 2, 2012 at 08:40 am

“… Run away and avoid the conflict?”

Actually, I think that IS what he does with them. Isn’t there a video around of him running from a firefight and leaving his teammates?


dave w October 2, 2012 at 09:01 am



elephantrider October 2, 2012 at 10:16 am

Ha. Didn’t even intend for a running away joke.


nikonmikon October 4, 2012 at 01:50 am

your state has shitty gun laws


nikonmikon October 4, 2012 at 01:51 am

disregard i mix you and madfag up all the time



Phil October 2, 2012 at 06:45 am

i surprised he doesn’t have a reality TV show on spike.


elephantrider October 2, 2012 at 10:15 am

I think he is more like TRU TV material. Combat Pawn anyone?


pro October 2, 2012 at 07:24 am

LOL this guy…


huey148 October 2, 2012 at 08:00 am

Sorry James, social media does not work one way, if you post it you got to be prepared to deal with how people react…its not like someone secretly taped you and then posted it and made nasty comments, you initiated the interaction. YouTube does not exist solely to stroke your ego….


Al T. October 2, 2012 at 09:46 am

“Actually, I think that IS what he does with them. Isn’t there a video around of him running from a firefight and leaving his teammates?”

TG, there is, but IMHO, it’s a red herring. Lots of blame for all involved. While I think Yeager is an idiot, his actions that day are not something I’d criticize him about. Poor training, horrible place to get hit by a far ambush (been there personally), inappropriate equipment, it’s a long list with a lot of authors. He was just one guy.


dave w October 2, 2012 at 06:46 pm

I have to (unfortunately) agree. it was a case of a idiot, working with a bunch of idiots, being idiotic, while in the employ of even bigger idiots.


Nate October 11, 2012 at 02:24 pm

You are, sadly, correct. When you take a contracting job, you are at the mercy of what your employer provides. Reading the accounts of the ambush that day, the team was I’ll equipped and even less prepared. It’s too bad lives were lost.


That Guy October 3, 2012 at 07:52 am

You know, you are right. I am not in a position to criticize someone for what happens in an ambush.


SPENCER WADE October 2, 2012 at 11:21 am

Yeager has not hear the old saying. there is always someone bigger/badder/faster etc. out there. and the bad thing is he thinks he is so BA and knows everything about firearms and how to run them that when he does meet the “other person” he will lose his life. Sucks for him, life lesson for me. (if you claim to be the best with a blade, then dont be surprised when someone chops ur head off)


Church October 2, 2012 at 02:48 pm

Too long, didn’t watch. lol


Sol October 2, 2012 at 03:20 pm

sorry Mike. gotta disagree with ya here. the guy puts out vids, does his thing and guess what? he’s not fucking wit anyone else. you can call it entertaining but quite honestly you HAVE crossed the line to internet stalker/troll with this stuff. its one thing to put up a vid where you’re pointing out something you disagree with him one (or even agree) but you’ve been reaching for stuff to just fuck with the guy for a while. personally i would have been pissed along time ago if you were coming at me like this so maybe just put yourself in the other guys shoes and modify your behavior. either way though karma is a bitch and we ALL eventually get what we deserve.


BBJones October 2, 2012 at 03:40 pm

You are trolling right?
Mike can say whatever he wants just like James can. I personally agree with pretty much everything negative Mike has said about Yeager. The only things I disagree with Mike about Yeager is the nice stuff he said about Yeager. Which if you go look up some of the latest posts he is complimentary.

Do you think Mike is really F*&%ing with Yeager? How so? by poking fun. In Yeager’s own words it is what he wants and it benefits him. So who is Mike hurting besides your man crush on a shoulder twitching, know-it-all, tough guy who threatens people every time someone says something negative about him?


Sol October 2, 2012 at 03:48 pm

you said….
So who is Mike hurting besides your man crush on a shoulder twitching, know-it-all, tough guy who threatens people every time someone says something negative about him?

yeah you’re one of those little faggots that talk shit and when someone is ready to deal with you, you act like a little girl and ask why are you mad. what a little bitch! but to answer your question i don’t have a crush on Yeager. i just think Mike is trolling him. but i’ll tell ya something else. you’re the type of little pussy that gets throat punched and everyone stands around taking shots of Jack Daniels waiting for you to die. i don’t know you but i already fucking hate you. its simple. i disagree with you but you took it too far. give me your e-mail so we can talk about it.


Eric October 2, 2012 at 05:51 pm

Ugh – fuck tard. Another internet badass.


denver chris October 3, 2012 at 06:02 am


Where I live, people smoke increible ganja – or so I’ve heard – legally. I think we need to start importing whatever you’re smoking on, it’s that pineapple express shit, only it turns you into James Yeager! Shit would be SO cash. Who doesn’t want to bang a “hot” wife who looks like a Barbie doll stuck in the 80s? While getting trolled hardcore? AND while calling anyone and everyone who disagrees with you pussy faggots?

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!!! Where do I sign up?


BBJones October 3, 2012 at 12:29 pm

I love your reaction. Keep throat punching!


SixtyForty October 3, 2012 at 08:02 pm

^ This is the best James Yeager impression I’ve seen yet!


ENDO-Mike October 2, 2012 at 03:48 pm

hahah lucky Yeager doesn’t give two shits about what you or I think. Crossed the line? I just pointed out what he said/did.. I didn’t make anything up. If you think the “Buck Yeager” thing isn’t funny then I feel bad for you.


Sol October 2, 2012 at 04:12 pm

don’t feel bad for me. feel bad for yourself. you’ve drifted off to troll land and don’t have enough self awareness to recognize it. quite seriously its really pathetic. it might be your form of comedy but you’re getting off by trying to pull someone down. that’s bullshit. i don’t know yeager from adam. if he saw me bleeding on a sidewalk he might walk by and call me a dumbass … i don’t know. but what i do know is that you’re crossing a line. like i said. we can disagree but the way you set up this little ‘article’ was to get people to agree with ya. if you were strong in your convictions then it wouldn’t matter if you were the only person in the world that felt that way. but this is stupid. you’re wrong and you know it. you’re trying to assault this guy by keyboard and would probably shit your pants if you saw him face to face. AND THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE. if you’re really anti-yeager then give him a call and stop this troll shit. i’m sure he’ll take your call.


Poppy October 2, 2012 at 04:14 pm

What’s wrong with trolling? Some of my best friends are trolls. Hell, I’M a troll.


ENDO-Mike October 2, 2012 at 04:26 pm

Give him a call? LOLOLOL like I said before, you’re mistaken if you think he gives a shit what I think or write about him. Like I also mentioned before, even if I did have the opportunity to meet him someday (say SHOT show) I 100% guarantee he would pretend he never even knew ENDO existed, which is why I wouldn’t even give him the satisfaction or the opportunity. If you’re so concerned with Yeager’s feelings you should give him a call and make sure he’s alright. You might have to repeat yourself a few times though if you call during business hours because the sound of money counters in the background are likely to interfere with the conversation.

I still fail to see how wishing the guy well is “crossing the line”. I genuinely mean that, and you can call it trolling if you want, but he’s getting advertising on here for free (which I normally charge a lot of money for) and as he mentioned in the video in this post that’s how he’s getting rich. If anything, Yeager should be contacting me and thanking me for posting about his photographers down range shit, and riding the “Buck Yeager” joke until the wheels fall off if it’s helping him out as much as he says it is.


elephantrider October 2, 2012 at 08:11 pm

What’s this imaginary line that Mike has crossed? I’m really confused. By your logic no one is allowed to criticize, or even point out what someone is saying anymore? Or are they only allowed to do it face-to-face? Or, are these some special unwritten James Yeager rules for criticism. Mike doesn’t even really say much about JY. He just re-posts what JY posts. Mike even says he like his videos.

By your logic you shouldn’t be calling the previous poster “faggot, little girl, pussy, etc.” Is that not crossing the line? We are supposed to be accountable for what we type, right?

BTW, if “fucking hate,” is how you respond to someone’s rational arguments you might want to go see a therapist or something. That’s not normal.


elephantrider October 2, 2012 at 06:32 pm

Calling ENDO Mike a Troll for posting this is inaccurate. Remember Trolls post controversial or inflamitory statements to elicit responses, derail topics, or just attract attention. I don’t think Mike is attracting a ton of extra attention by posting and poking fun at James Yaeger. Nor is he provoking anyone except for his usual BLOG readers. I doub’t they are provoked much at all by this, in fact it’s what they come here for. The only people who take issue with it is the occasional person who shows up to defend James, such as yourself.

Now on the other hand let’s discuss James Yeager and the topic of Trolling. In my book James trolls the whole Youtube gun video community with video titles like “1911s Suck,” “Bullpups Suck,” etc. What other reason is there for posting video titles like that than to attract attention and views? He could have called it ‘James Yeager’s views on the 1911,” but don’t think that would attract as much attention.

Let’s really think about what it means to be a Troll before leveling the “Troll” accusation. If we were all just a bunch of trolls we just hang out in the comment sections of the Tactical Response videos.


jpcmt October 2, 2012 at 03:23 pm

All I know is I got rid of my .40 glocks for 9mm so my penis would grow back to normal size. Thanks Yeager for making me a man!


SPENCER WADE October 2, 2012 at 04:08 pm

Sol. he must love the dude. his comment about thoat punched and drink dack janeils is classic. FUCK BUCK. hes weak his youtube history shows it. THOSE WHO DONT DO. TEACH. LOL


Weer'd Beard October 2, 2012 at 05:09 pm


He makes some good points about disabling comments.

Still he makes no point on why he disables ratings.

We all know the big reason why he disables comments, and its the same reason why the Brady Campaign does too!

Oh and Hitler was a Vegetarian! :D


paul kimble October 2, 2012 at 06:31 pm

youtube comments? i only watch buck yeager videos if one shows up here. if buck ever types “james yeager” into google he’s gonna have a tactical shit fit and kill all you terrorists.


elephantrider October 2, 2012 at 06:58 pm

To all the James Yeager fans. Face it, the dude is just one of those people, that people love to hate. James brings it on himself. I was aware of him for many years, and didn’t really have an opinion about him good, bad, or indifferent. He seemed to put out videos with somewhat useful advice, or at least tried to. In the last year or so he seems to have reallly ratcheted up the douchbagery: tiny t-shirts from the Jersey Shore collection, threats of physical violence (“I’ll break their back,” “pound you into a pancake”), random name calling (pussies, cowards, tiny dicks, etc), trollish video titles (“1911s Suck”), and name dropping (“My friend Travis Haley, Chris Costa, Rob Pincus…… ). I don’t know if he was always really like this, or if some form of sucess just went to his head. Maybe it’s the MMA training, loosing 50lbs, being on TV (‘One Man Army’), the possible TRT treatment, or who knows what?

What I do know is at this point James is like that kid in High School that everyone loved to hate. Not because he was fat, short, dumb, wore glasses, smelled bad, or wore funky clothes (not that James is neccesarily any of those things), but because he had a crappy attitude. We all know that guy who no matter what always managed talking his way into getting puched in the arm, wedgied, and thrown into a garbage can head first. Whether he was trying to or not, there was always some guy who managed to piss off someone bigger, stronger, smarter, or meaner than themselves and they got some unwanted attention. James Yeager is, or has turned into, an adult and supposedly professional version of that guy we all knew and fondly remember from or adolescence. He just doesn’t know when to stop talking and project a better image. Instead he explains it all away with an ‘I gotta be me and f-off if you don’t like it.’


overkill556x45 October 2, 2012 at 07:08 pm


You can’t call yourself a professional and call people “fucking faggots” ten times per video. I will personally shit a solid gold brick if anyone can post a video of Travis Haley, Clint Smith, Mas Ayoob, or Chris Costa saying “you fucking faggots” in any of their videos.


John Fritzed October 2, 2012 at 07:23 pm

If he was a little sharper he’d exploit all of this attention somehow and turn it into a positive for himself.

I don’t think he deserves to get his balls busted like he does but he’s going about fighting back the wrong way.


Lance October 2, 2012 at 08:12 pm

If you can’t stand the heat of the internet… get the fuck out of the internet kitchen. Free speech is great when it’s productive and I understand the negative comments on YouTube can be a pain in the ass… trust me, but I believe even comments that don’t agree with the point of the video are productive and stimulating. Anything that gets the people thinking and talking is good stuff.

I use the philosophy of… ‘don’t say anything on the internet that you wouldn’t say to that person face to face’. I stand by that.


Lance October 2, 2012 at 08:22 pm

I don’t like the comments of ‘I’m hear to teach, not to learn’. If you’ve gotten so pig-headed to the point that you can’t learn even the smallest thing from someone unless you feel they have the right certification then you are a sad individual. It’s a very good thing when someone can take information, assess that information, maybe even try that technique, and see if that applies and agrees what you believe. An open mind is a great thing to have, but it’s not a good thing when you decide you only need to open your mind to certain people.

So many people reference military TMs, manuals, tried and true techniques, “there’s only one way to do this”… but I have a better philosophy to reference… the philosophy of Bruce Lee…

“Using no way as way” & “Having no limitation as limitation”

Always moving forward and looking for a better way to do things.


Jon October 4, 2012 at 11:16 pm

Mike, keep it up; I am entertained. If Buck didn’t exist we would have to create him.


Poppy October 5, 2012 at 12:31 am

Why do we call him Buck, isn’t his first name James?


Bucktheman October 8, 2012 at 05:15 am

Buck is a female to male transgender porn star that looks just like james. Hes the one on the second pic.


FarmerJoe October 5, 2012 at 10:25 pm

I feel bad for Buck. He’s getting ate up with the hate. He’ll end up a shell of a human being at the rate he’s going. I see a tin foil hat and a bell tower in his future. Poor Bucky.


Chris Davis January 15, 2013 at 10:56 pm

I believe the public’s concern is that Yeager a well trained and well armed man with one finger on a hair trigger, citing that unnamed entities are taking away unspecified rights and if it goes one step farther, he’s going to start shooting people.
