Jeff Cooper On The Surprise Break

I stumbled across this clip of Col. Jeff Cooper explaining the trigger break to students at Gunsite. It's worth viewing a few times to help increase your trigger control.

This, by the way, is the same Jeff Cooper who is accused by the hoplophobes at CSGV of being a racist and a misogynist. I don't have to wonder what he would think of these gun prohibitionists but I do wonder what might happen if they had the balls to make those accusations to his face.


  1. That is a good one! And Cooper was an excellent instructor!

  2. This post might not be well-received, but I have to make it anyway.

    I clicked on that link expecting the CSGV to prove themselves wrong. However, some of those are, indeed, racist and mysogynist comments.

    I don't think that makes Jeff Cooper a horrible man. I think it's important to celebrate people for the good things they do. But I also think it's important to recognize that some things people say/do are bad.

    Everyone has had disagreements with their friends, and yet remained friends, and this is the same kind of thing. Acknowledging that Col. Cooper was a product of his time, and that he retained some unfortunately incorrect and harmful ideas about people of different creeds, doesn't prevent us from loving all of the wonderful teachings he gave us.
