Jeff Cooper quotes :

The issue in this private war is not physical nor economic nor professional rather it is moral. Time will tell.

The only thing wrong with the 1911 pistol is that it is just too big for some hands. The only thing it really needs is a smaller butt, as with some entertainers we could name.

I am a preacher, not a tradesman, and the further my word is spread the better I like it. Guru teach, Guru not sell.

Can it be that the whole human race is in need of another world war in order to sort itself out? Ugly thought.

Let us devoutly hope that reason may eventually pervade the bureaucracies of Eastern Europe. We in the West, however, are not setting them a particularly good example.

Nothing is interesting if you are not interested.

Have you noticed how modern adventure action depends to a huge extent upon the notion of the unarmed victim? If the adventure writer could see himself clear to fit out his protagonists with proper firearms and the skill to use them, however, he might not have any plot to work with. I note specifically that no guns were permitted on the island featured in "Jurassic Park," except in the hands of the PH, who naturally wasn't there when needed.

First, men fight their very best when they fight to defend their homelands against a foreign invader. Second, when it comes to imparting of skill the public sector can never equal the private. Third, marksmanship is an art to be cultivated rather than a commodity to be issued.

The new policy in British jurisprudence is to assess fines on the basis of the wealth or income of the offender. Thus a reasonably successful man may be punished severely for an offense which would draw no more than a token fine from a proletarian. Truly the class system is alive and well in Socialist Britain.

In my view, liberty is that condition which exists when men make their own laws, either directly or indirectly, and are protected from bureaucracy or despotism by unbreakable rules.

That's what we like about politicians - their conspicuous moral courage.

It does seem that generalized rifle marksmanship is almost a lost art. There are people who can shoot off the bench, and there are people who can display area fire at 600 meters with the poodle shooter, but practical rifle marksmanship, which is concerned with first-shot hits rather than volume of fire, appears to be going the way of cultivated conversation.

It is popular, at this time, to compare the behavior of our uncontrolled federal agents to that of the Nazis in the Third Reich.

When fiction writers get involved in weaponry they apparently take the view that since their readers don't know anything about it either, they can speak freely. I suppose this doesn't matter much in a day when nobody reads anyway.

A roadside billboard in Central California now proclaims,
"Remember Weaver and Waco. You may be next!"

Thinness of the skin seems to be one of the paramount troubles of the age.

Bumper sticker:
"Only criminals, dictators and democrats fear armed citizens."

I have often preached that the proper antidote to fear is anger, and I see no reason to change my opinion on this. However, there is another mental condition that serves as well or possibly better, and that is concentration. I have discussed this matter at great length with people who are in a position to know, and I am not without experience of my own, and I can state positively that when you find yourself facing deadly danger, your ability to concentrate every mental faculty upon doing what needs to be done to save yourself leaves no room for fear.

As hunting season approaches, it is well to remember that it is not necessary to conduct all your rifle practice on the range. All sorts of things may be simulated at home, especially including the acquisition of position, bolt work, and the use of the sling.

Let us all thank God for hunting season, one of the endangered aspects of life which may serve to preserve our sanity.

It would appear that the media are desperately attempting to sweep Waco under the rug. Let us hope this takes more sweeping than they can handle.

Our enemies may not be able to abrogate the constitution just yet, but there are economic and political means by which they may dry up our ammunition supply.

"When two opposing sides of an argument are presented, one by an honest man and the other by a liar, the liar usually wins, simply because he is not inhibited by the truth."
The Guru

Public virtue is not with us today; thus it may well be that the collapse of our political and social order is not far off.

It is interesting to hear certain kinds of people insist that the citizen cannot fight the government. This would have been news to the men of Lexington and Concord, as well as the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan.

I learned from a recent re-reading of Dante's Inferno that he reserved the seventh circle of hell for those who betrayed their benefactors. How appropriate, just at this time!

No fighting man has ever resented the deadly perils of his profession as long as he was truthfully told the merits of his cause.

In addition to its various other transgressions, such as the Randy Weaver disaster in Idaho, the FBI has now come out for the disarmament of the American people, and has issued an official press release totally exonerating the Bureau for any sort of transgression in the Waco atrocity.

Anyone who knows anything about marksmanship knows that it is something one does not boast about.

Hard as it may be to believe, there are still people around who do not know about the "ghost-ring" sight. This sighting system was described in the early decades of the twentieth century by both Townsend Whelen and Karamojo Bell. It is so far superior to any form of open sight, for either snap shooting or precision work, that there is simply nothing to discuss. Yet, the manufacturers of the world have not heard about this, and they keep putting sighting systems on their rifles as issued over the counter that are little better than useless .

As I have often stated, if someone wants to shoot at me, I sure hope he does it on full-auto.

What the disarmers never recognize is that episodes like Tiananmen Square can never occur if every citizen maintains his own rifle in his house, as in Switzerland.

A pistol is a defensive instrument, designed to stop a fight that somebody else starts. It is strictly an emergency device called for in an unpredicted emergency. The shooter has to respond to an action initiated by another, thus he needs all the emphasis he can properly control.

The rifle, on the other hand, is normally an offensive instrument with which the shooter has the initiative and is carrying the play to his prey. Hence the rifleman can shoot with great care, placing his bullets properly. He needs only enough power to insure proper penetration into the vitals of his target. Blowing down trees on the far side is an extravagance.

Modern prisons don't scare the bad guy. The only thing that can help is will - the will to fight back. If we have truly lost that, there is little hope for our civilization.

Hillary seems to be working on the notion that lead, in and of itself, is an environmental pollutant. You see where she is running with that? If this notion is not stopped at once, all small arms ammunition - not just bird shot - will be placed off limits.

The place to do our complaining is at the polls.

Apparently, the term "Black Talon" was unnerving to the wimps, but why in the name of common sense must we give the time of day to the wimp establishment!

It was amusing, in a grim sort of way, to watch the hoplophobes accelerate the business of their feared foes, the gun dealers. The message delivered by the Brady Bunch was evidently, "Citizens, arm yourselves, the Clintons are coming!"

I am sometimes asked why we have not given more thought to the concept of a self-loading Scout rifle. The fact is that up `til now no self-loading action has been produced which is light, simple, and compact enough to meet the weight requirements of the piece. A second point is that semi-automatic fire is of little concern to a man acting alone unless he is in danger of being overwhelmed by a hoard of iron-age types armed with edged weapons. I would never be opposed to the concept of a self-loading Scout, however, if I thought I could get it without drawbacks.

Now is the time for all good men to stock up on ammunition and deck the halls with boughs of holly. Merry Christmas To All and To All a Good Sight!

Jeff Cooper

I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.

"Some cynics were annoyed that Obama went out of his way at the funeral to shake hands with Cuban dictator Raul Castro, but we think the president deserves brownie points for fighting his normal impulse to bow deeply and give the dictator permission to start enriching uranium." Stilton Jarlsberg

Hey I'm still P'O,ed about the "All this for a Damm flag" comment at the 9/11 tribute. Didn't this country give these two the ability and opportunity to advance in society? That letter from that 4th grade teacher should be Applauded, not censured!! The Democratic Party has been infiltrated by socialists....
