Galco is excited and proud to announce James Yeager as our newest brand ambassador!
James is the founder and CEO of Tactical Response, the Tennessee-based firearms training company. He’s taken on many roles in the firearm/tactical community, both in the training realm and in the hard-knocks real world.
On the law enforcement side, James has been everything from a Patrolman to a member of Drug Task Forces to Tactical Team Leader to Chief of Police. He worked as a contractor on two Protective Security Details in Baghdad, Iraq during the height of that conflict.
James has been a firearms trainer since 1994 and has taught literally thousands of students, some of whom have put his teaching to the test in real-world confrontations. He’s a certified expert witness on firearms, tactical training and use of force. Several Galco employees have been fortunate enough to attend classes at Tactical Response.
He’s also a professional author, published in magazines such as SWAT, Southern Lawman, Concealed Carry, American Handgunner Special Editions and STUFF. He wrote the foreword for Andy Stanford’s seminal book Surgical Speed Shooting and appeared on its cover. He’s written a book on High Risk Civilian Contracting and has also produced a series of instructional DVDs.
James’s enviable curriculum vitae of shooting and tactical training courses fills several pages and includes classes from instantly-recognizable names like Tom Givens, John Farnam, Jim Crews, Jeff Gonzalez, Pat Rogers, Bill Rogers, Larry Vickers, Massad Ayoob, Ken Hackathorn, Dave Harrington, Clint Smith, Rob Pincus, Travis Haley, Pat MacNamara and Chris Costa. James likes to say that he’s “a student first and an instructor second.”
Lastly, James is a very popular – and occasionally controversial – personality on social media, most notably on YouTube, where his videos regularly get thousands of views and interactions.
Galco is very happy to welcome James to our brand ambassador program!
