LtCol Jeff Cooper, R.I.P.

Sad news from the high desert of Arizona: LtCol Jeff Cooper, father of modern practical shooting, has died.

Read my tribute at Op-For, and another great one at The Other Side of Kim. Posts on my two trips to Gunsite are listed to the right under "The Best Of."

A singular, great man has gone. His enduring legacy, Gunsite, thrives, and his words endure in his books and Commentaries.

Graduate, Gunsite 270 and 223
