James Yaeger has passed

A controversial figure in the firearms industry, James Yeager and his Tennessee-based Tactical Response training school was polarizing to many. Love him or hate him, Yeager announced his fight with ALS earlier this year and it was announced last week that he passed.

The news brought tributes and salutes from across the larger gun community ranging from Chris Costa to Gunsite and Jack Carr.

As Yeager always said, “Your responsibility to be ready for the fight, never ends.”
