Oh James Yeager no, cameraman downrange @ 0:22!
This is stupid. Before someone accuses me of donning my more-safety-than-thou halo, I will state that there are possible reasons to have students or instructors downrange, in tightly controlled circumstances, for strictly limited purposes.
Getting cool pictures to promote future classes is not one of them.
Neither is increasing stress on students to demand high accuracy and conscientious muzzle discipline. You can have exactly the same effect by standing a no-shoot right next to the student’s target and have them do pushups or hand over a dollar every time they punch it.
The only reason this is done is to jack up the cool-dude factor and pump students up about getting hard core training they won’t get somewhere else. It doesn’t teach you anything that can’t be accomplished some other way, without endangering lives or teaching dangerous habits. And judging by the glacial shooting pace at barely beyond bad breath distance and sloppy gun handling, you’re not learning much there anyway.
Which brings me to this video, which is at first a fairly sensible take on stockpiling emergency supplies of food and water. It also contains a few words shaming those who expect to use their guns and their neighbors lack of guns to substitute for their own preparations. Yeager rightly calls this out as cowardly and predatory. But at the end of the video, Yeager warns his viewers that they are not welcome to share his supplies unless they have taken a class from him. Which is his call to make, but as you are cross-shopping for firearms instruction, be sure you are making a priority out of the right goals. Are you attending gun school to improve as a shooter, or to belong to a cool club? If you make belonging a priority, you will probably not improve as a shooter.
