Buck Yeager Will Kill You If You Are Man Enough To Call Him A Coward

From the comments on the James Yeager Is A Coward video:

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.

Make sure to check out the Duel Contract if you already haven’t.

He’s an idiot. Typical ‘roid rage. I sure hope anyone who’s thinking about training with this clown gives it a second thought. I couldn’t imagine being on the stand and having a jury shown his morons video rants, and saying that he’s the guy who trained me.


Church December 10, 2012 at 12:54 am

I completely agree.


dlhglkuvlfkhgh December 10, 2012 at 12:37 am

We know you’re in love with BUCK YEAGER, but give him fifteen minutes of fame and send it home


SittingDown December 10, 2012 at 09:54 am

That’s what he wants us to do. He may get a few subscribers initially, but I bet he loses a substantial number of students due to his pathetic behavior.


dave w December 10, 2012 at 01:30 am

i think he was better off when he had comments disabled


Rodger Young December 10, 2012 at 02:38 am

He has no business teaching lawful self-defence as his actions demonstrate he has no understanding of the legalities of it. I have a lot of respect for Thunder Ranch and he taught classes there recently and Clint (a personal hero) spoke highly of him. Now, he pulls this nonsense, makes me question Clint’s personal and business judgement.

Yeager is making everyone, most of all him, who is serious about training look bad. This behaviour is unprofessional and juvenile. Early on he could simply have said, “There was nothing I could have done differently on Route Irish, the deaths of my comrades haunt me to this day, I have dedicated myself to being the best warrior I can be because of that day.” Now the whole situation is off the rails and I can only hope that it doesn’t get larger.


Denver Chris December 10, 2012 at 02:55 am

This train has long been falling into an endless pit of despair. The professional trolls, 4 Chan, can take it from here


Weer'd Beard December 10, 2012 at 04:12 am


If Mr. Yeager is ever involved in a civilian shooting the prosecution will essentially have a Murder 1 case HANDED to them, no matter what the circumstances.

Sadly they will only have a slightly more uphill case against his students and instructors if they are ever in a defensive shooting, as they can claim that they were trained, and view as a positive roll model, this unbalanced individual who makes constant threats of illegal violence and murder.

This is exactly where you DON’T EVER want to be if you carrying a firearm.


Thunder Ranch December 11, 2012 at 03:45 pm

Rob…thank you above all for our concern. We had James as a student last year. He was a good student. We have over the years asked people to come teach at our facility…Jeff Hall…Ray Chapman…Mass…Farnam….Jon Penny. We want our students to have exposer to other” tools/skills in the tool box”. James has always be controversial and will continue to be;) Our students were able to put their gun skills up against another instructor to see if what they already have on board works for them. Clint and I want to always be students…so that we can learn more so that it benefits you. There are some things we totally disagree with James about period….and some things we agree with. Clint and I have been doing this a long time…people come and go in this industry….and we will come and go. The best way to handle this type of situation is for us is to ignore it….James has his own way of doing things…that does not mean we agree with what he is doing….but it has nothing to do with us. We did not make money on the classes he taught here…all funds went to him….he did in trade give our local LE officers a free class and for them it was a good experience having someone outside the Thunder Ranch Box….they may not have agreed with everything he taught but its good to get this exposer for yourself as a student. James came…he taught our students…he left… and we wish he and his wife all the best in life. Thank you again for your concern Rob. Clint and Heidi

Guys, I know you like the guy but he did just threaten to murder someone for calling him a name on the internet…


Rodger Young December 10, 2012 at 05:08 am

Oh for fucks sake, did anyone else know that “Tex” ‘I just fucking shot myself’ Grebner took Tactical Response classes?


For those that missed his ND the first time



liquidflorian December 10, 2012 at 07:52 pm

Yeah, I think that’s why when he accepted blame for the ND it was with the caveats that he was using a SERPA and a 1911.


Kevin December 11, 2012 at 09:44 am

I like how from 0:40 – 0:55 he flails his gun in the air like a moron, does a retard spin, then throws his gun back down range like a gay version of James Bond. Then proceeds to do it several more times throughout the video. Seems like those courses are for fucktards who want to pretend like they need to have ultimate tactical gun fighting skills. As someone who works with SWAT and ESU, he’s doing it wrong.


overkill556x45 December 10, 2012 at 05:19 am

Remember that time someone called Clint Smith a name, and then Clint went online and made statement after statement about killing anyone who insulted him? Me neither.


Rodger Young December 10, 2012 at 05:25 am

There’s a long history of if, Jeff Cooper, Chuck Taylor, John Farnam, Bill Jordan, Elmer Keith, they all haven’t done it too. It’s shameful.


overkill556x45 December 10, 2012 at 05:37 am

If I recall, Travis Haley and Christ Costa also didn’t have an episode wherein they threatened to kill anyone who insulted them. There is a pandemic of even-tempered instructors! Someone should start mailing them whatever horse steroids and amphetamines Buck is on.

If I was Clint, I’d have no association with Yeager whatsoever. Unfortunately, Yeager will be a guest instructor at Thunder Ranch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2HRjmbWg7I


jpcmt December 10, 2012 at 10:03 am

If I’m not mistaken, this is enough to have him arrested. A death threat is a death threat. I’m sure he’s got enough fans of his cowardice thingy to get a class suit going. i know I feel endangered having posted something negative (“growing balls”) on one of his videos, so yes, I need $6 million for my scared senses and paranoia.


overkill556x45 December 10, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Not enough in my state. The threat is decidedly non-specific. If he ever says “I’m going to kill you on Tuesday with my rainbow brite collection.” then he’s in trouble. Someone should infiltrate his outfit and replace his steroids with estrogen pills like in “The Longest Yard”.


John December 10, 2012 at 10:11 am

This guy makes tons of cash getting all the publicity he gets from the forums and people talking smack. His career thrives on the drama he creates. For every person who bashes him there’s someone who is lining up to sign up for one of his classes. The best way to make him go away is to stop talking about him and caring what he does. Buck Yeager will fade away on his own if no one talks about him. He does nothing special that 900 other “tactical” groups can do without the drama.


Denver Chris December 10, 2012 at 10:56 am

Trolling the trolls, you say? I doubt it.


Pan500 December 10, 2012 at 11:06 am

Has anyone got their money back from Derpatical Nonsense course? You know, standing front of the class and telling “I think the owner and CEO is piece of trashtalking, foulmouthed person that I don’t like”. Someone should try that and see the shoulder rolls and hear the “break your back”-threats.

It is funny that James posted video about 1911-fanboys and their egos invested on their guns while he’s invested his ego on stupid looking t-shirt and this badass operator look.


enfieldem2 December 10, 2012 at 12:10 pm

It’s times like this that I am glad that I have gone to thourghly competent training outfits. If I had attended one of these tactical response classes I would have to pubilicly disown everything I had done there. And I don’t like disowning anyone.


Rodger Young December 10, 2012 at 01:40 pm
Aaron December 10, 2012 at 02:05 pm

Someone should go down there with a police escort, unarmed and with a camera and call him a coward right to his face. Then when he does not gun you down due to the police presence, it will be proof that he is a coward who does not follow through with his word.


Cargosquid December 10, 2012 at 02:14 pm

Heck…just get a harmless, little ol’ tactical grandma to tell him the truth to his face and get it on camera.


dave w December 10, 2012 at 02:28 pm

seems like we need to point out his stupidity to the discovery channel before he looses everyone their guns.


ENDO-Mike December 10, 2012 at 02:33 pm

Discovery channel is such a DERP-fest I’m sure this newest Buck Yeager incident would be more of a selling point for them than a reason to drop him.


Rodger Young December 10, 2012 at 03:41 pm

We’ll see, I just asked them if he’s contracted with them.


032125 December 10, 2012 at 02:36 pm

Maybe he was bitten on the anus by a radioactive spider while injecting steroids. Now when he gets angry he becomes RhoidRage, swollen and inching (and burning) for a fight!


Regulus December 10, 2012 at 04:21 pm

I wonder if anyone has called the cops on this guy.!?.,?!?? I guarantee you he is on a “watch” list.


dave w December 10, 2012 at 04:30 pm

seriously isnt this last debacle enough to get his cc permit pulled or something?
This guy is not helping gun owners.


Jeff December 10, 2012 at 04:43 pm

wtf?? a couple weeks ago he was just blocking the trolls, how did it get to death threats?


Rodger Young December 10, 2012 at 05:06 pm

It’s a pretty short process when you’re surrounded by fanboys saying, “That’s a great idea James!”


SittingDown December 10, 2012 at 05:06 pm

Yeager slips into alter-ego Buck about 00:20 in…



matt December 10, 2012 at 05:12 pm

Yeager isnt going to kill/attack anyone. He has a baby boy due in a couple months.


dave w December 10, 2012 at 05:35 pm

pffftt.. like his swimmers still work. Best get a DNA test ready.


SittingDown December 10, 2012 at 10:47 pm

He must’ve frozen some before the operation.


Tyler December 10, 2012 at 05:36 pm

He just went full retard… I serious want to take a class and show up with a 1911 just to troll.


Punish3r December 11, 2012 at 10:24 am

James you went full retard, man. Never go full retard.


John Fritz December 10, 2012 at 06:57 pm

Wonder what his daughter thinks about this nonsense…

Buck’s going to look back on this episode six months or a year from now and truly regret his behavior. The Internet is forever.


Regulus December 10, 2012 at 07:34 pm

this guy belongs in jail


45CALifornia December 10, 2012 at 07:42 pm

someone needs to take one for the team: go call him a coward, whether you believe it or not, and get shot. just so he goes away.


Rick December 10, 2012 at 07:56 pm

James Yeager suffers from #1 roid rage and #2 tiny pecker bully syndrome. #2 is a direct result of a bad junior high hazing episode that involved a wedgie and cold shower I bet …


dave w December 10, 2012 at 08:35 pm

Im sure if you went to TN and asked those who went to school with him etc they will tell you he has been a fucktard since day 1


cc19 December 10, 2012 at 08:59 pm

No going back now. But I do like the lack of posts from the usual devil’s advocates this guy.


s30 December 11, 2012 at 04:51 pm

a couple are still standing strong on ar15.com


liquidflorian December 11, 2012 at 05:11 pm

do you have a link?


farmerjoe December 11, 2012 at 06:11 pm
john December 11, 2012 at 10:55 pm

Does anyone know what sent him over the edge? He has been called a coward for years.


Rodger Young December 12, 2012 at 12:49 am

Perhaps he sees it as a chance to promote his brand or maybe he believes he is well enough established that he can behave this way.


AZVIKING December 16, 2012 at 01:05 am

He is not so very different from most of the cops I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Heavy on the attitude and steroids, light on the actual ability and experience. Yes, I know he had plenty of time going 16 on 1 with body armor and automatic weapons vs say a pistol when he was a SWAT officer. Most of his videos that I have seen were less than accurate with the info he gives out as expert advice….


Rick January 4, 2013 at 02:05 am

tell ya what get me a ticket to SHOT and if he’s there I’ll call him a pussy and take the punch . No worries , It will hurt like hell . but I’ll still me at SHOT right ?
