On the contrary, I quoted the complete passage, verbatim. Furthermore, I took issue with the words, not the man. Lastly, my main point was that every shooter should be free to concern himself with the full range of possibilities afforded by his weapon, from employing it in world class bullseye shooting, to waxing and polishing it on a portable pedestal, as legitimate alternatives to "practical shooting and practical accuracy", whatever our anointed authorities suppose that practice to encompass.But you have spoken hypocritically here. Anybody reading Cooper knows he was concerned with practical shooting and practical accuracy, not world class bullseye shooting. You have quoted him out of context and then insulted him. For Col. Cooper, practical and defensive shooting was important. And, quite frankly, I don't know anybody who would refer to Col. Cooper as either cute or dumb.
