Just a note to let the guys know that Col. Jeff Cooper died yesterday afternoon.

Right, wrong or indifferent, we pistol shooters owe a debt to Jeff Cooper not only for what he did but also what he has been doing. The school he founded has been training our elite military units in close order drill for years.

May he have been in heaven 5 minutes before the Devil knew he was dead.
Ed

Sad to hear. Sad

Dont know much about Jeff Cooper myself but any loss is a sad one as atleast one person lost someone they know and loved.

Hope all the best for his family and may he enjoy being among past loved ones. Smile

For our foreign members: Just reading the quotes is worth the look.
