Jeff Cooper Has Died
There'll be more, but for now I'd like to offer that for his time he was a wonder. Isaac Asimov had the Laws of Robotics, and Cooper had the Laws of Gun Safety. He never met a .45 he didn't like, and throughout the years I asked and asked why there was never any mention of the single most important part of a firearm, namely the ammunition, and not once received a real answer. Jeff was of the opinion that fancy schmancy was all well and good for those who couldn't shoot for shit, but real men carried ball. The science of shooting progressed and Jeff remained adamant that it was all smoke & mirrors to placate the sick, lame, and lazy.
