Spend a few minutes with the gunner's guru, the late Col. Jeff Cooper

Every gun nut worth a pinch of salt knows who Jeff Cooper is and was, as Michael Bane says without exaggeration, the most important influence in firearms history since John Moses Browning.

Bane got the very last interview with Col. Cooper before he moved on to the big shooting range in the sky and if you've got a few minutes, they would be well spent watching the videos. From the linked page, click on "Select A Video Category", scroll down and choose "Jeff Cooper Uncut."

The first interview is "Meet the Colonel" with an overview of his long prolific life, the second features the Bren Ten, Leather Slaps and the Weaver stance, the third the 1911 .45 ACP pistol and the fourth Cooper's concept brought to life for the Steyr Scout rifle.
