My non-membership in the cult of Jeff Cooper is well-documented.
While I credit Cooper for his early contributions to training, his lack of real-world experience made me hesitant to take his endless advice at face value.
Also, aside from training, I knew Jeff Cooper was a blowhard, an attention whore, and had a poor track record of picking equipment (Bren Ten, CZ75, etc.). His tortured sentence structure made deciphering his ramblings a tedious chore. And he loved to take credit for things for which he was a mere spectator, rather than a pioneer.
After reading the new issue of Guns & Ammo, we can apparently add “Shit-Talker” and “Sore Loser” to his resume:
Connecticut held its Republican primary for the upcoming election for Governor, to see who would face the embattled Democrat Dannel Malloy in the fall.
It goes without saying that Dan Malloy, the anti-gun, tax-happy, stuttering father of a drug-dealer armed robber has to get booted. He ran Stamford into the ground as mayor, and then did his best to steer the entire state into a fiscal ditch.
But who to choose to oppose Malloy? Businessman (and former Ambassador to Ireland) Tom Foley narrowly lost to Malloy 4 years ago, and was running for the nomination again. His chances are said to be better this time, as Malloy’s reputation has fallen even lower.
