Here’s What American Sniper Chris Kyle Said About His Killing Two Men at a Gas Station in 2009

Chris Kyle
Chris Kyle

Chris Kyle was incredible. He was simply an incredible, real-life action hero. Before his death, he was already known as the deadliest sniper in American history and as a best-selling author. Since his death, a few reporters have heard trickles of other stories. Around Midlothian, one story in particular has been raising eyebrows. It goes something like this: when he was first back from Iraq, in 2009, Chris Kyle killed two armed men who were attempting to carjack him at a gas station.

I first heard this story more than a year ago. It hasn’t made the news much. There was a brief mention in Marcus Luttrell’s second book. And now the Star-Telegram has a blog item mentioning the story and how difficult it is to confirm. Well, as it turns out, I’ve been working on a story about Chris Kyle for about nine months. We talked regularly, mostly about the challenges and triumphs of his transition home. I first asked him about the story last summer, during an interview in his Dallas office. I said: “Now, I have to ask you about an incident that I’ve heard about. I heard it happened at a gas station.”

He said: “You mean the time I shot two guys trying to steal my truck?”

I sat there stunned for a few seconds. The incredible story I’d heard, I figured there was no way it was true.

“It’s true,” he said.

He proceeded to tell me about that day. It was in January 2009, just weeks after he retired from the Navy. It was cold that morning, and he was wearing a heavy winter coat. He was driving his truck — his now famous black F350 with the large rims and impressive grill — when he needed to stop for gas. He pulled into a station right off highway 67.

As he got out of the truck, two men approached. Both had guns in their hands. One pointed his weapon at Kyle. They told him to hand over his keys. Kyle was out of the truck, on the passenger’s side.

“I told them I would get them the keys,” he told me. “I told them they were in the truck and to just let me reach in.”

He noticed the man pointing the gun didn’t seem very confident. Kyle knew what confidence with a gun looked like.

As Kyle turned, leaning into the open passenger door of the truck, he reached into his own waistband. With his right hand, he grabbed his Colt 1911. He fired two shots under his left armpit, hitting the first guy twice in the chest. Then he turned slightly and fired twice more, hitting the second man twice in the chest. Both men fell dead.

Kyle leaned on his truck and waited for the police.

He said he was later told that trucks like his are very popular among car thieves because they’re frequently taken over the Mexican border. He said they’d passed up the car in front of his, even though it was a relatively new Cadillac.

Kyle told me that the entire incident was caught on the gas station’s surveillance cameras. He said he gave the responding officers a phone number to call. Presumably someone high up in the government explained to the officers who Kyle was. He said the officers were very understanding, that they didn’t want to drag a just-home, highly decoratated veteran into a messy legal situation that would surely draw a harsh media spotlight.

Kyle told me that he knew the tape was out there somewhere, because he would randomly get emails from police officers all over the country, thanking him for “cleaning up the streets.”

Several of Kyle’s friends were familiar with the incident, and they had heard virtually the same story. After our talk, I called the police chiefs of several towns along 67. Most of them had heard of the incident. One, speaking only on background, said he knew some of his men had at least seen the tape. But request after request provided no police reports and no tape.

We’ve debated here at the office exactly how to handle this. Honestly, I wanted to tell the entire world about it on the afternoon it was confirmed. But I always wanted to tell that story in the context of a larger story about Chris Kyle, about his service, about the amazing things he’s done for other veterans, and about how hard he worked to adjust back to this world — to become the great husband and father and Christian he’d always wanted to be.

Now that the story is coming out in other places, though, it needed to be confirmed. So consider this story confirmed from the man himself. In every sense of the word, Chris Kyle was a true American badass.

Comments

  • Bud Kennedy

    How can this be regarded as “confirmed”?

  • Avid Reader

    Wow.

  • Avid Reader

    Looks like quotes were used above, guessing Mooney has recordings or transcripts.

  • VMan

    I agree, how is that confirmed? The facts as stated there are absurd.

  • Richard C

    I and another friend met Chris for breakfast in December 2009 in Dallas, and he relayed the same story. If I recall correctly, Chris was on his way to Dallas for the Dallas Safari Club Convention on that January day, and we were meeting with Chris to talk about his involvement with DSC and to see what DSC could do to support Chris’ passion to help veterans. That ultimately led to this year’s Convention, where Chris was the keynote speaker at a breakfast attended by nearly 400 members on January 5. We raised a lot of money and Chris was going to be able to fulfill a dream of hunting in Africa and New Zealand.

    We lost a friend, a hero and an American bad ass.

  • Brantley Hargrove

    So, you’re saying it is completely inconceivable that an armed Navy SEAL could kill two men whose only training involves robbery? You could stand to be more credulous about how effective a killer this man was.

  • Bud Kennedy

    Confirmed like Teo’s girlfriend.

  • Zac Crain

    Topical comedy! Still got it, Bud.

  • America

    This article raises more questions than it answers.

  • VMan

    I have no doubt he could and would kill two guys. No, it is the part where the cops arrive, he tells them to call a phone number and they are told to back off. No report, no grand jury, no nothing on the books. What, did they walk inside and review the surveillance tapes on the spot? That’s the part I find absurd.

  • Brantley Hargrove

    Valid question. If it had been Dallas or even a decent-size ‘burb, I’d be inclined to agree with you. Mooney says it happened off 67, though. In a small town, it becomes easier for me to believe.

  • Chris

    Wow. Would love to hear another angle of this though.

  • jnw32

    How could two people be killed with no police report at all? I don’t believe that is possible.

  • Tim Rogers

    I heard this story in January 2010 from a very good friend of Kyle’s. At the time, though, I didn’t know the source knew Kyle. He (the source) told me the story without giving me Kyle’s name. Only after “American Sniper” came out did I make the connection and tell the story to Mooney, who then began trying to track it down.

    Anyway, the story as I heard it in 2010 said exactly that: the responding officers quickly went to watch the surveillance tape and were duly impressed.

  • Lew Patton

    Hey Bud….why is it so hard for you to believe someone could do this..?? Maybe you should spend less time at the dinner table, and more time around veterans who don’t have to lie about such things.

  • Doubting Thomas

    What about the 2 bodies? What about the 2 death certificates? What about witnesses? What about the family and friends of the deceased? What about the employees of the gas station? What about the coroner’s reports?

  • Question

    This is not, by any journalistic standard, confirmation. While it is entirely possible, there is no evidence throughout the article to support the facts. This could just easily be an urban myth that Chris Kyle himself continued to perpetuate. Find a police report. Two men died – there will be one. Or how about the officers that responded to the call? Or the convenient store clerk? These are small expectations to have of a journalist that has been “researching” an article for 9 months.

  • Brett Moore

    I can’t believe you get paid good money to make comments like this. (I kid, I kid…)

  • Military Friend

    Nobody said there aren’t any police reports, they just said that the police wouldn’t give them over. If you were a smalltown cop who just realized a sniper killed two thugs, would you publicize it and invite controversy for a hero who has already given more than any one of the whiners commenting here or would you shake his hand, thank him, and try your best to shield him?

  • dubious

    “As he got out of the truck, two men approached. Both had guns in their hands. One pointed his weapon at Kyle. They told him to hand over his keys. Kyle was out of the truck, on the passenger’s side.”

    Needs an editor….and more provable facts.

  • Conservative Redneck

    Typical reaction from an asshole FN left wing communist propagandist–should have stayed in high school sports Bud!

  • observer

    When you get home from war, you should be ready to stop killing. I hate what happened to Mr Kyle, but was his truck more valuable than two human lives, even if they were scum? Trigger happy?

  • Jim Reed

    The Legend Grows…..

  • Made safer by Chris Kyle

    You’re trying to incite some emotions with that
    idiotic statement, right “Observer”. That is
    absolutely a justified shooting. You don’t think
    those two scum knew they could die every time
    they chose to participate in illegal activity. Also,
    you do understand he probably saved lives by
    killing those two criminals. But then again you
    probably don’t understand the thousands of lives
    Chris Kyle saved by killing his 200+ confirmed
    kills.

  • UT-Austin journalism graduate

    Mr. Mooney is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin journalism program, as am I (not the same year). In J 315, the first writing class journalism students take, they are taught about confirming sources. Basic journalism instruction stipulates that all facts must be confirmed with more than one source, even if the information comes from a primary source. Certainly in the case of a double homicide this would be necessary. This article by Mr. Mooney violates numerous journalism principles and ethics, including confirming facts, checking records, reporting without bias and having basic journalistic integrity. He should know better because was taught these things in journalism school. If two people are dead, there will have to be some kind of record of it, including police reports, medical examiner reports, confirmation by family members, and many other types of records that reporters employ in their everyday work. Mr. Mooney has failed to do any of this.

  • Doubting Thomas

    200+ is 160 per his own book. Those were in combat scenarios. Last I checked, Texas is not in the Middle East. I’ll consult my map, given to me by Miss S. Carolina.

    Were the killings justified? An arguable point.

  • BradfordPearson

    Mr. Mooney went to journalism school at UNT’s Mayborn School, to be clear.

  • UT-Austin journalism graduate

    “When did you start reporting–doing journalism?

    I worked at the school paper there at [the University of Texas] a little, but l didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. I worked at a law firm for a couple of months doing research about lawsuits, and that was not fun at all. And I moved back up to Dallas from Austin in 2005.”

  • UT-Austin journalism graduate

    “Mooney received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas in Austin in 2004.”

  • BradfordPearson

    Again, not a graduate of UT’s journalism program. If everyone’s going to attack Mooney, might as well use the correct facts. He studied english and anthropology.

  • UT-Austin journalism graduate

    That still avoids the issue of journalistic principles and integrity. Are you saying the fact he did not major in journalism as an undergraduate gives him a free pass to ignore journalistic standards?

  • Safer

    When I point a gun, I’m prepared to use it. If one is pointed at me to steal a piece of gum, then the taking of their life is justified. I’m not going to wait and try and guess the psyche of an individual who chooses to brandish a gun for illegal activity. You wait all you want. Good luck. You’ll need it. I’ll prepare if the unfortunate opportunity arises…

    As for the 160 confirmed kills. Those are the only ones the Pentagon will confirm. You got me good.

  • BradfordPearson

    Not at all. What I am saying, though, is that people are attacking Mike for not confirming details and implying something when he doesn’t have evidence. Yet you just wrote something incorrect about Mike after performing cursory internet research, so there seems to be a double-standard.

  • UT-Austin journalism graduate

    No, because I am not writing about an alleged double homicide. And he is a graduate of UT-Austin. Of course, if I were alleging he shot and killed two men, I would look beyond the Internet for sources. But go ahead and defend your friend’s shoddy journalism and pat each other on the back for it.

  • BradfordPearson

    Literally all I was saying was that he wasn’t a graduate of UT’s journalism program.

  • Rhonda Reda

    Funeral is Monday at Cowboys Stadium! Very Sad

  • tested

    I appreciate the fact more than one reliable source supposedly confirmed this story. What I’m concerned about is the lack of an on-the-record source who actually saw the video. What we’ve got here is heresay. We also don’t have evidence of bodies or other direct witnesses to this event. I’m TOTALLY willing to believe this is true…I just want better evidence. There is no doubt Kyle was a hero.

  • Joe American

    Worth the lives of those two scum? You bet.

    Anyone who thinks otherwise has never been victimized by the likes of people like that.

    Odds are, he saved some innocent person from being killed by these guys in the future, but even if not – the world is a better place without them.

    They did not give a damn about his rights, why should he care about theirs?

    You know, there are people in this world who believe it is wrong to take a life for any reason. So our prisons fill up with scumbags who we now have to pay to keep alive for the next fifty+ years. We release rapist and child molesters after a few years of prison time, and they get out and do it again. Yet we never learn…

    What about the rights of the victims? What about the rights of society? Why do we, as a society, have to live with the likes of these scumbags?

  • Lew Patton

    You are correct Bradford…I followed your train of thought…

  • Bill Marvel

    The interesting question is not whether this incident occurred. It’s obviously entered into the growing body of Chris Kyle folklore. Mooney leaves plenty of room for disbelief for those who choose to disbelieve. Mike has cited sources of the tale — Luttrell’s second book, recurrent rumors, some of Kyle’ friends, a police chief along 67, all “confirmed’ by Kyle himself.
    Will it eventually be confirmed by a document trail — police reports, coroner’s report, gas station surveillance tape? Possibly; possibly not. What’s interesting is what the story says about those who want to believe it and those who want not to believe it, how each side reads the story selectively. Mike’s laid out the evidence so the reader can go either way. Does Mike himself believe it? Possibly, possibly not.

  • LarryF

    bumped off….like jason bourne aka matt damon in Bourne Identity or Bob Lee Swagger aka (Mark Wahlberg) in Shooter….he knew too much.

  • Tim Rogers

    Thank you, Bill.

  • Bud Kennedy

    Bill, books without footnotes are never reliable sources — they represent an author’s unchecked assertions. As much as Johnson County law officers gossip, we would know more by now than just some vague account. And if the police chief saw a video, why wouldn’t he/she give a name? If this really happened in Johnson County, everybody would have known it the next day and they would have put up a historical marker by now.

  • NYC EMS

    I don’t think he was saying there was no police report, I think he meant one that he could get his hands on. correct me if I’m wrong though.

  • Betos

    Bud, if you heard Chris Kyle say these things, would you not write a column about it? Mooney says what he knows. He knows Chris said it happened. If you’re so confident, go write a column saying you don’t believe it. D handled this responsibly.

  • william baglivo

    a badass christian?

  • william baglivo

    a bad ass christian?

  • Bill Marvel

    Thank you, Bud, for demonstrating exactly the point I was making.

  • lsheridan007

    I don’t know if this is a true story. If it is, I have a hard time believing the authorities would just let it go, but the Military have more power than anyone it seems.

    I admit I did not know who Chris Kyle was before his tragic death, but since have thought of him as an amazing soldier/human being with an eerie talent for lack of a better word.

    I can’t imagine what his family must be going thru after living thru 4 tours in the was torn Middle East to lose their beloved son, father, husband, hero to a disturbed Vet.

    RIP Mr. Kyle.

  • todd

    I think you are being a tad too judgmental about a guy who prevented two people from helping themselves to something that did not belong to them.

  • Doubting Thomas

    A human life(good or bad) vs. a piece of property(which can be replaced and is probably insured).

    You decide.

  • Doubting Thomas

    Sooooo……you kill them, right?

  • Tim

    This is like something out of a B-movie. No way did this happen. Being a sniper in the military would not give you a pass at killing civilians. Jesse Ventura was suing Kyle claiming he fabricated a story about him. Either Ventura or Kyle was lying. If Kyle really gave a report this story than it is clear who the liar is.

  • Doubting Thomas

    There is no known police report. That makes perfect sense, right?

  • Doubting Thomas

    “Hey Bud….why is it so hard for you to believe someone could do this..??”

    Because Bud has common sense. People don’t just get shot and killed without leaving a paper trail.

  • Anonymous

    So because he was a war veteran, it was ok to kill two people. Cause he had a phone number. Live by the sword and die by the sword buddy

  • Harvey Lacey

    It sounds like bs to me.

    But it makes perfect sense if you look at men like Kyle through out history. The best comparison would be Audie Murphy. Do some research on his post WW2 adventures in Collin county.

  • Toomanymorons

    No, because two thugs holding a gun were threatening his life you mindless jerk***moron

  • Roll On

    Worst thing this man did was have a good aim….you threaten me, my family or a stranger with a gun then you have choose to meet your maker (whoever that may be).
    You can call this story a hoax,fabrication or whatever, most have forgotten that this man was helping a brother veteran and was pointlessly killed, he served his country in a manor only he has to answer to some day and not by anyone on this site or anywhere else.

    by the way, Texas has some of the best laws in this country for one to protect himself and his property. He acted according to law if the story is true. Probably some drug cartel smucks anyway.

  • todd

    I don’t know, I was not there.

  • Chris Manibo

    Wow Really!!!! The man was getting robbed!! That is
    why we have concealed handgun permit. Those two
    men took a risk that day and paid for it with their lives.
    Mr. Kyle is an American hero. He served this country
    with dignity and honor. Veterans voluntarily gave
    years and sometimes their life so you can make a bone
    headed comment that. What a crying SHAME…..

  • Doris Myres

    I am so glad that someone finally remembers this great hero. But are the two in the same class?

  • Anonymous

    Last points all true; still, he let his guard down at a time when it should’ve been up. He could’ve prevented his own death for the second time.

  • Michael Wessalowski

    Seriously? So you are saying that these two idiots would have just taken the car and left him alive, right? Would YOU want to take the chance with your own life? You sound like those people complaining about cops but when something happens you’re the one screaming the loudest for cops!

  • think before you speak

    No, it wasn’t ok to kill them because it was a war veteran. It was ok to kill them because he was BEING ROBBED BY TWO THUGS WITH GUNS dumbass.

  • Kari Dugan Melvin

    Boy did they ever pick the wrong truck

  • dbstevens53

    I would not doubt it is true. What I don’t understand is why anyone has trouble with what he did. Good for him!! If this happened more often, the bad guys would start thinking twice. To me it is a simple case of self defense and I commend the police officers etc. for their non action toward Kyle. He fought for his country and was not some thug looking for trouble. In this day and time being the good guy does not always pay off. Good for him and his actions!!

  • dbstevens53

    you are an idiot

  • Doubtful

    This story is hard to believe. Even if he was a famous war vet, the general disregard for due process is absurd. Is there any real evidence of this shooting?

    Is there any real evidence that he is America’s greatest sniper?

    I have a feeling we don’t really know who America’s greatest sniper is, and I doubt he would be bragging about it even if he did know.

    There’s something quite fishy about all of this second and third party hero worship going on here.

  • Adrian Rodriguez

    Given those circumstances it would’ve been appropriate for anyone to kill those two guys. It’s easy to make smartass comments when you don’t have to face the person they’re intended for. Stay “anonymous”, coward.

  • Ben

    @Doubtful, to have a “confirmed” kill in the military, it must be witnessed and recorded by somebody else on the ground with the shooter.

    So there is a chance that others have ended more enemy lives, and Kyle himself undoubtedly had more than 160 successful shots on target, but as it relates to him being the deadliest “confirmed” sniper in US military history, that is as factual as can be proven on the battlefield.

    Regardless of anybody’s personal views on war/combat/military action etc (and they are across the board), Kyle volunteered for a job that put him in harms way with a very specific task, and when called upon, he performed that task at the highest level possible, without asking anything in return.

    God bless his service on and off the battlefield, his colleagues, and the United States of America. Regardless of what anybody says, there is a true cost to Freedom, and these men, women, and their families understand it all too well.

    Ben

  • Alex Flores

    Great story!

  • Tom J

    Ventura seems to have degenerated into a complete mental case. Let’s net open that can of crazy worms. I would not look to his as a credible source. Regarding the incident as it’s told here, it strikes me that the law enforcement officers simply did not have any evidence that would indicate Mr. Kyle was doing anything other than protecting his life from two criminals, which would preclude them from arresting him. I’m sure statements would have been taken, etc, and perhaps they will be published at some point. I’ve heard this same story via podcast from Brandon Webb’s SOFREP broadcast. BW was a good friend and colleague of Mr. Kyle’s, and can be considered a credible source by all reasonable standards.

    Sadly, I’m not surprised to read negative comments about Mr. Kyle’s response to having his life threatened as there are so many knuckleheads in this word. Someone else mentioned here that you don’t know the mental state of someone with a gun, and chances are they are not a rational, level headed person. Chances are that if you give them whatever they ask for they will simply kill you anyway. We’ve all seen various convenient store footage of clerks being killed over nothing. He protected himself. I applaud his actions, at the station and throughout his life. We would be better off with many more people of his caliber in this world.

    Sniper shooting in Cleburne a hoax

    Is the small town denial a hoax?

  • Tzara

    While I would like to believe this as true…the lack of evidence is bothersome. It says in this article he was on the passenger side of the truck…why? The gas tank on a Ford F350 is on the driver side. Normally when filling up my truck I stay on the driver side and have no need to go the passenger side. I’m not calling liar liar pants on fire but the logic doesn’t add up to me.

    • mgmossa

      think about it, no reason to lie. He was already decorated, no reason to lie or embelish. I guess it’s hard to believe that a man can have such valor.

    Listen, I like the guy, I’m proud of him from deep in my heart. I’m a vet and wanted the best for him and for all of us, we all love guns, we promote guns and the romance of a bad ass. So in what way is stories like this helping the case of allowing us to keep our guns? I guess nine, I would have tried to do the same if a guy has Hus gun trained on me, but in some way we need to focus on this for what it was, self defense, not a bad ass that went looking for it

    Its funny you make a comment and refer yourself as “Anonymous”. He was protecting his self from a crime. When i went thru CHL class we were told by the instructor (a retired police officer) to protect our self from any threat if it came to a life or death situation.” You shoot to stop the threat.” One guy asked “Does that mean you kill them?” The instructor repeated “You shoot to stop the threat.” Meaning whatever it takes. Don”t act surprised that the Government protects their own. Do you not realize that there are numerous soldiers out their alive yet have no records of their existence because of what they have done or seen. Don”t be so naive. Chris Kyle did his job that he was asked to do from his leaders. No shame and no regrets. Chis Kyle protected and fought for his country…….just like every soldier is doing right now. They don’t have to do it……they volunteer to do it. Your comment “Live by the sword and die by the sword buddy” offends me.

  • Steve Dame

    Were the killings justified?????? If you were being carjacked at gun point and you had the opportunity to stop them by shooting them…….would you? What if your family was in the car? Is it still an arguable point? Put yourself in that situation before you judge.

  • Steve Dame

    So Doubting Thomas……what if your family is in the car? I guess you can get a new family(insurance does not cover that). You might run into a person that kills you anyway……..just for shits and giggles. Its not about personal property……..its about your life and maybe your family. I choose their life over mine……just in case.

  • Larry Staton

    Have you RESEARCHED this story? Investigative reporters who have thoroughly looked into it report that it is NOT true, that NO authorities anywhere in that general area, NO medical examiner / coroner anywhere in that general area, and even NO gas station in that general area has ANY information of such an incident involving Kyle having occurred – nor were there ANY local media reports of such an incident just in general terms (with no names given, etc.).

    Claims can be made that “because of his ‘hero’ status that authorities kept this quiet”. Bullshit. Public authority agencies simply cannot operate in such a fashion because if it comes out that they did so, people (a) lose their jobs and (b) go to jail!

    How about doing some REAL confirmation on this instead of hero-worship commentary from the claimed actor of this incident and a “corroboration” from one of the actor’s well-associated peers / friends – who had NO personal knowledge of said incident but simply reported what the actor told him (and the term actor ironically fits in more than one way!).,.

    No. It is true. Contact the local area authorities yourself – as some of us have done – and verify that this is ALL total BS…. like 75-80% of his book!

    When official military records are released – they have not yet been – his “count” will be found (according to many SEALs and other SpecOps) will be greatly “enhanced”… And the local carjack shooting never happened!

    The police officers, if this had happened and they took such non action (it is HOMICIDE until ruled Justified, or whatever, through a LEGAL INQUEST) would not only lose their jobs but be sent to prison! What a naive mindset!

    Why do my posts / replies to this article – ones that have LINKS to news stories where RESEARCH was done that show this carjacking story to not be a hoax, but to be a BS lie – keep getting pulled by the Moderator?

  • patriot

    Chris Kyle was a true american some other kind of ass,

  • patriot

    Yes, I’m so glad we had men like him around when Iraq invaded the US, slaughtering thousands and thousands of our citizens, raping and murdering girls at checkpoints they established in our country. Thank God for the US department of DEFENSE and how they have bravely fought so that we can have useless opinions.

  • Larry Staton

    Why is it that the LINKS attached to basically EVERY post that I have filed has included LINKS to news stories that have proven through RESEARCH that this carjacking story is NOT true have consistently been pulled (except in 1 case where one of links was apparently not scratched by the vaunted Moderator?

    And why have the vast majority of my replies to several of the existing Posters also NEVER made it past the Moderator?

    Profane language? No.

    Spreading lies and fictional data? No. (Kyle and article author did that nicely enough).

    Put article author’s “research”, “conclusions” and “corroborations” in a BAD light? Yes.

    Plus all those replies that I made to the existing Posts also contained those pesky LINKS.

    Being copied for routing to MSNBC, Rachel Maddow Show, Huffington Post, D FrontBurner management, The Peace Blog (former SEAL and friend of Luttrell’s) – and a few other “surprise” media sources… also for attachment as part of Reviews at Amazon for Kyle’s book and Luttrell’s book.

    This outright denial of fully legitimate Free Speech simply to protect an “in-house” peer not only is a major journalistic ethics and integrity violation, but literally makes me suck to my stomach.

    By the way, this Reply is simply a test as yesterday and before, the article Moderator pulled these same LINKS to news stories – there are also others – where real RESEARCH proved this carjacking story to be a lie – and this article to be very poor “journalism”….

    Posted 2120 hours 01Jun13 for record — Reply to Post from “patriot” that apparently (very poor grammar) is calling me an ass… That Posting just after my text Post from 31May13 where – once again – links were pulled by Moderatot.

  • Dani K.

    Are you people suggesting that the writer should not have told people that Chris Kyle told him this? If you heard a story about your neighbor, asked your neighbor, and your neighbor said it was true, what verb would you use to describe that? You would use the word “confirm.” Didn’t use the words “it happened” or “it’s true.” Looks like D Magazine has been ESPECIALLY careful about this topic.

  • Chuck Webb

    No you dumb jackass. What made it ok for him to kill the idiots was the fact that they tried to carjack the man which in turn defended himself, it’s called eliminating the threat in shooting language

  • Scott shauger

    No Mr, Anonynous he killed the bastards that tried to steal his truck and were armed? what would you do be a victim and curl into a little ball on the pavement and start crying? you are a pathetic piece of shit…get a grip

  • Canvasback

    It was completely OK to kill them. I kill every imaginary goblin who approaches me at a gas station. I even toss and turn at night fighting them, and I always win. By the time I finish breakfast the hallway is greasy with corpses, but I can’t stop to tidy up. I have to get on about organizing community defense and the local chapter of the Unicorn Roundup League. It’s exhausting work but I get tremors if I sit still too long.

  • True patriot

    Really? If the opinions these men and women die for are so useless how about you just Gtfo and go to a country where speaking your opinions get you killed. If it wasnt for people like Kyle you wouldn’t have the right to say that ignorant comment, moron. It amazes me how people as stupid and utterly useless and shameful as you make it this far in life.

  • True patriot

    Ha, happens every single day… Don’t be naive.

  • True patriot

    And if they had killed him would his life be worth less than the truck? It was justified.

  • Former LEO

    chatter in the law enforcement community about this matter. None. Zip (with the exception of the talk about this being a hoax that is). Cleburne PD has already declared this a hoax, as has the Johnson County DA’s office. No news, no chatter, no bodies, no “officers” identified, no nothing. Why? Because it never happened.
    Chris Kyle was a great American. He was a hero, and I hope that he rests in peace.
    But he also had a good imagination and was a good storyteller.

  • Old Cop

    Listen folks, this has all the earmarks of an urban myth. Think for a minute. The cops arrive, don’t write a police report and do what with the two bodies? Assuming that there were bodies, the ambulance crew(s) or coroners employees cart the bodies off to where? The bodies would have went to the coroner’s office. Then every employee in that office agree to keep a double homicide under wraps. How many killings do they handle a year that something this extraordinary can be hushed up? The folks working at the gas station and every other person/customer at the scene of the shooting decide that they also will keep this spectacular killing a secret. The robbers had no mothers, fathers, or other relative that would have come forth to the media after their relatives were killed? It’s too much. If this would have happened everyone in the tri-county area that knew about it would have been calling the newspapers and trying to get their face on TV. C’mon. Marcus Luttrell should know better. BTW, I read both his books and they were good.

  • Oscar Sanchez

    No it was not ok just because he was a veteran, it was ok because they were armed and up to no good; eho knows what they intended to do if he did not turn the keys over. It is stupid people like you that makes it si hard to get America back to its roots, and thats why criminals have more rights than law abiding citizens.

  • Cole Cook

    all of my bad ass friends read this

  • Jason

    Confirmed? Then where are the security videos or police/coroner reports? Never happened. This guy was a liar. I knew a–hole marines like this who faked their way into purple heart citations and plastered the vinyl stickers all over their vehicle windows and license plates (WERBLACK AND PECK, 3/1, OIF VI). Any service member who is compelled to write a book in order to brag about how awesome he is should not be trusted, and none of us did. Hero doesn’t describe this man, but “idiot liar” does.

  • Jason

    What a crock of complete crap. Since when does local authority take orders from some DOD phone voice? Since when does the DOD have ANY authority over a sovereign state municipality? Since when does a good Christian man get his rocks off offing people for a living? Can you provide a contextual scriptural reference that justifies his actions? Hint: I’ve spent the last four years at a conservative bible college, and the answer is no.

    Chris Kyle was a liar chock full of bravado that he wanted the world to acknowledge. I would never trust a veteran who bragged as much as he and that moron Luttrel. Is this what the SEALs produce now? At least CAG, DEVGRU, and MRSOC keep to themselves.

    This story never happened. Chris Kyle pissed off some nutball Marine at a gun range and it turns out that all his bada– training and hyper-bravado couldn’t save him from the same thing that saved from a non-existent lethal car jacking.

  • Jason

    Don’t be proud of this fake. I knew a–hole marines who had the same mentality and faked their way into purple heart citations over a bs ied toe-popper. I was the “medic” who responded and helped the evac occur. Kyle and Luttrel fit that exact mold. These morons aren’t heroes, their attention starved, profit seeking bastards who take advantage of their pseudo status as fox news war legends. FAKE LIARS.

  • Jason

    Way to not question the tenets of this fake story. A guy guns down two individuals with a 45; when the cops show up, a magical tag on Kyle’s police BFT ID says “call this number for further instruction;” the governor AND the DOD then convince the police to let it slide.

    What?! Wtf is wrong with you? Where are the witnesses, tapes, bodies, or reports? Why does this sound like a crappy hollywood-reject narrative? Are we also supposed to believe that Marcus Luttrel is a bada– because he wrestled alligators for fun? What kind of morons and idiots turn off their sense of logic and reason when they read this garbage?

  • Jason

    “God bless his service on the battlefield”

    annnnnnnddd this is why 1) people hate Christianity and 2) why Iraq was full of Syrian kids who crossed the border just to take shots at us and bury IEDs on our MSRs. Go f-ck yourself.

  • Outside Break

    When you look into kyle you begin seeing a house of lies. For whatever reason kyle felt he needed to bolster himself. I gather it was for self promotion. Too bad his pride in killing women and children in Iraq isn’t a lie. Even his own people didnt like that.

  • signalfire

    Feel free to ‘confirm’ the name of the two dead guys. Because according to real investigative journalists, the coroner has never heard of this and the police have no record of anything like that happening in their jurisdiction in the claimed month. Kyle lied about Ventura and he lied about this, and he also lied about going down to New Orleans during Katrina with a sniper buddy and shooting looters.

  • Mike

    You sound like a true pathetic tool. He didn’t live by the sword, he did something most and certainly you could never do, put others lives ahead of his own. A trained SEAL or anyone with that extensive training, though rare for most could stop an armed robbery. I’ve seen police officers overcome deadly situations and they have far less training than Chris did. As far as the information with the officer and the gas station, I don’t know the story. I can tell you officers use NCIC which is ran by the FBI and I wouldn’t be surprised if you ran his information it had a number to contact if you ran it. There are many names in the system that if you run them it will immediately notify high level government officials. He worked with the CIA so anything is possible and this account is certainly believable. JUST TO BE CLEAR HE DIDN’T KILL TO PEOPLE AS YOU SAY. HE PROTECTED HIMSELF WHICH EVERY AMERICAN HAS A RIGHT TO DO. HE STOPPED TWO MONSTERS WHO WERE WILLING TO PULL A LOADED GUN ON HIM AND MAY HAVE KILLED HIM. KEEP LIVING IN YOU’RE FAIRY TALE WORLD. This is why he could accomplish such things because someone like you would roll over and die in such a situation. You are a disgrace to yourself, family and country to even speak ill of a hero who has done more for you, you’re family and this country. He’s done more in his short time than you will ever be able to do in you’re entire life. A true coward will bash a hero and is afraid to post their name. At least Kyle would have at least had the balls to say what he thinks and doing it so everyone knows he said it, coward.

  • DLO

    Yes, it’s ok to kill!!! Especially dumb
    Mother fuckers like you!

  • GullibleFools

    “Odds are, he saved some innocent person from being killed by these guys in the future, but even if not – the world is a better place without them.”

    Odds are, he didn’t save anyone, because the perpetrators didn’t exist.

    Odds are, those two dead guys aren’t dead because, again, they didn’t exist.

    The B.S. that you people fall for is amazing. Like many things Chris said, this event did not happen.

  • GullibleFools

    You’re crazy. The “writer” says the story was ‘confirmed.’ Some of those confirmations were from people who Chris told the same story to.

    If I told you I won $30 million, and someone came and asked you if I really won $30 million, and you said, “Yes, he told me I did,” does that actually confirm that I won $30 million? NO.

  • GullibleFools

    People are stupid and will believe anything they want to believe, in the face of all common sense and lack of proof. This thread proves it. Anyone who believes the story isn’t stacked with brains.

  • GullibleFools

    Friend of the family, you wrote more lies than anyone in this thread. What an insane story.

    And Army Rangers are not classified super-secret soldiers; they wear a frickin’ Ranger tab on your everyday uniform. You’re insane or just trolling.

  • Logan Simonsen

    Why would there be a grand jury? If the tape showed the cops that he was legitimately defending himself then whats there to have an investigation about? I imagine there was a police report, but sounds like they are just not turning that report over. Why do they need to?

  • JCB

    Maybe not. I have a cousin who is highly ranked Delta force. And he has a tendency when home to travel around on a motorcycle with no ID and carrying a gun. Some years ago, he was in a motorcycle accident where he was knocked out. He awoke in the hospital with police wanting to know who this guy is who had no ID and a firearm on him. He gave them a number to call. They called it. And he left the hospital with his gun right after. No records, no further questions. It seem fantastic and “Hollywood”, but these special cases are indeed out there.

  • Joshua Place

    No just because someone says it doesn’t mean its confirmed if you killed anyone…regardless of who they were you would be arrested and investigated for murder and the jury will decide if you are innocent or not

  • get it right

    sorry dome a@@s they haft to document all there kills when they kill some one and they don’t go in jail for shooting people in the war get it right before you go blabbing your mouth

  • get it right

    nice we need more people like you in the world

  • Mack

    To all those who are sensitive about him killing the two guys….thats what thy get for being criminals! End of story!! Where I live if someone takes your car from you they shoot you anyway so you can’t identify them. It was kill or be killed in Chris’s situation and he did the world a favor by getting rid of those two wastes of sperm and eggs. If my state had permits to carry there would be less car jackings and less gang members.

    • john doe

      Who wants steal an obvious truck with no gas…

  • Mack

    That’s hat they get for being criminals! End of story!!

  • Mike

    Not to be picky but the weapon he carried was actually a Springfield Armory 1911 TRP operator tactical .45, the same sidearm he took with him and carried on deployments

    This story has been around for a long time and is quite definetly true, the surveillance video confirmed for police that Chris only opened fire after his life had been threatened and both men were indeed armed. He was legally carrying his 1911 and therefore was never charged and the story was kept quiet.. Marcus Luttrell discusses this in his second book, Service

    • ClementWeather

      Yeah.. well.. it didn’t happen. Don’t be foolish.

  • Justin

    You are completely and utterly full of shit. You were a secret Ranger? Really. You were such a secret part of the 75th Ranger Regiment, who’s entire command staff is listed on the internet, that nobody could know what you did? You are a fucking idiot for even writing that. There is nothing top secret about serving in the Regiment. If there was they wouldn’t be walking around with tan berets, scrolls, and Ranger tabs. The reality is this: you were probably either never in the Army, or you are some goofy little cock holster who lied to everyone about what he did because you are ashamed that you were a mechanic. And BTW, there is nothing wrong with being a mechanic if you served honorably. Why lie?

    There are ZERO secret people in the Regiment. There are ZERO people who kill folks and then just get back in the car and carry on with their day after the police arrive. Reports, which are public records available via FOIA, are completed, witnesses are interviewed, the bodies are autopsied, a grand jury is convened. All these things are public record. Any killing is legally deemed a homicide. A grand jury determines if it is justifiable or not, NOT the responding officers, police chief, General Sherman, the President, or anybody else’s. A jury of your peers. That anyone would believe this horseshit completely blows my mind. This is real life, and in real life shit like this dosen’t happen.

    I know this article is ancient, but this shit was driving me so crazy that I had to comment. It’s fucking ridiculous, and anyone who dosen’t have enough sense to look at this rationally is a fucking retard

  • Thumbs up

    My maybe thought,

    Over time I have read and read a lot of online articles and comments posted about this gas station story. While reading about all of the kinds of speculation and what may or may not have happened something just hit me. The responding officers [if story is true] mentioned that car thieves love trucks like these and steal them to take them to Mexico. My thought was this, what if these 2 guys were actually from Mexico and were maybe undocumented and not US citizens or not legal. If so there would be no US family saying who killed my son, sons, or brother and no one to demand justice. So f there was anyone wondering or thinking on the Mexican side of the border where’s pedro and Javier, would the family or friends even know they were or may be dead. Would they ever contact the US authorities looking for the men, knowing they are car thieves and be too afraid anyways. So now it’s as follows, beans & rice dead, and nobody cares.

    But what do I know…

    You do not go to jail if it is obvious self defense and you certainly don’t always go to trial. You may want to learn a little something about self defense before our make stupid comments.

  • michael davis

    And he was wrong. You do not always get arrested and go to trial for self defense..In most states , especially texas, you simply give a statement and go home then the cops investigate. May investigate that is. If it is necassary.

  • michael davis

    And you know he lied, how? Kris Kyle is dead. Ventura persued that case against his widow. It certainly doesn’t mean that Ventura didn’t say that “the SEALs deserve to lose a few in Iraq.” Knowing Ventura and his stance on the war it doesn’t surprise me at all nor do I doubt it. It also says a lot about his character that he persued the case against a dead man and his widow. Venura is now and always has been a true piece of shit. His conspiratorial nonsense along with is close friendship to that other moron Alex Jones doesn’t make him the most trustworthy or intelligent person. That jury should have been hung a long time ago but the judge forced them back into deliberation. The decision of a jury doesn’t make it a lie. Only Ventura and a dead man know the truth and knowing the type of person that Ventura is I tend to lean towards Kyle as telling the truth.

  • michael davis

    Ever dealt with small town cops before? It isn’t hard for me to believe at all. There never would have been a grand jury to begin with. It does not work like that in self defense cases.

  • knick

    What I feel is that Chris had no reason to lie about killing 2 lowly street criminals after having all the fame for being one of America’s best snipers. So I believe the “urban legend” is true.

  • Lee Lankford

    If Chris spoke it.It was true he didn’t bullshit he was straight up like it or not!! He was protecting his person from these two thugs. I would have done the same thing without hesitation. Be it not my 1911 .45 it would have been a knife body defense. Its called being trained for any situation at anytime.. God Bless you Chris.. RIP my Bother!!!

  • ep_vet

    Chris lied and Jesse beat him in court, There IS A WINNER! The truth! Chris was a sniper hero… he wanted to be a SUPER HERO, defending the mission against all real, perceived and imagined enemies… he lied this time… and a number of other times. For example, he said the government hired him to shoot looters from the roof of the SuperDome during the aftermath of Katrina…. that was another stinker! So was this story which NOBODY could ever confirm!

  • Kypton Blodgett

    That story is so fake so much b.s. it hurts. No country sheriff on that highway ever heard of such an incidence.

    The Ventura thing proved the man was a pathological liar, seemingly proud of cowardly acts too. Claiming to sucker punch a near senior citizen with a disability onoy for it to be proved a total lie? What other lies has he come out with? I feel embarrassed for you yanks who hold such people up as ‘heroes’
    You have far better examples, in and out of your military.

    True or not, this sounds like a pretty good application of castle doctrine / stand your ground. He was confronted by two men, armed, and used deadly force to protect his own life and property.

      Agreed, but it never happened

  • Kristopher Otto

    OK so I don’t know if this is true, or if the reporter is an idiot or if Chris was ect. But what I do know is I chew. And from what I have heard Chris kyle chewed.( smokless tobacco) for those who don’t know what I’m talking about. Why is this important? Well people who chew spit in bottles. I regularly throw those bottles on the floor board of my truck which I throw out every time I fill up my truck with fuel. So what I’m saying is I have no problem believing he might have been on the passenger side of he truck when this happened because I am every time I fill up. Which is quite often. Just my 2 cents

    • ClementWeather

      Good points, but this clearly didn’t happen. It’s what’s known in common vernacular b as a bald-faced lie.

  • Willie Wilkens

    There is no way that two human lives were taken and it seemed to be swept under the rug. I don’t believe this for even one second. I think Kyle was a hero and very capable of doing what is reported but as a retired cop with 32 years under my belt I say no way. Kyle’s gun would have been taken, he would have had blood drawn for alcohol or drugs and the case submitted to the District Attorney. Sure it was justified but it still would have had to be reviewed. This story screams “BULLSHIT”.

  • Steve89

    Chris Kyle fans are retards

  • john doe

    Yeah that sounds like a good plan let’s go steal a very noticeable truck and also take it with no gas..did the small town cops also kill any witnesses, gas attended, passers by, some reporter or big mouth had to see police activity dead bodies don’t just evaporate.

    Sounds like total bulls@@t story. Asking us to believe a whole lot of hard to believe stuff.

    Another tall tail like the Jesse Ventura story

  • Tea Party USAR

    What a bunch of bull. I know of a 2 star General that was detained for a day for8 hours for less than this.The Police are just going to magically let him leave after they have 2 dead bodies still lying on the street ? If you are not a member of Congress that has open sessions in progress , or the POTUS , you will be filling out a lot of statements for quite sometime and going down to the PD for some photographs, background check, AFIS Scans, video statement, 2nd interview with a Commonwealth Attorneys lision ect.. I know. I am a retired Police Officer from Virginia. We have lots of DC traffic.Its sad he is dead. Its even more sad all the lies are catching up to him with so many little kids looking up to our Military. Harper Collins owns the book of lies.Ventura started the lawsuit before his death.The Judge called Kyle a liar and the jury did also.The jury awarded Ventura the money. He asked only for the truth to be told that Kyle lied about punching him in the face.Harper Collins had to pay the attorneys bills and the damages caused by Kyle. Not a dime came from his estate. Gee I wonder who owns Harper Collins? Do some homework.

  • Helder Wit

    This story, along with the Jesse Ventura and a couple of others have been proven to be BS. The man did a great job of what he does in the Navy, why not leave it at that? The new movie involves his now widow like she was there at every corner and this too has proven to be Hollywood influence in order to drag in the female crowd and give what’s her name fifteen.

  • jason

    the guy was a lair there is no more self defense. he would have been detained for homicide there no record i heard he shot dead body’s and took credit. my boy who did 4 tours said he was a lair

  • mik661

    about as true as punching Jesse Ventura in the face. A jury decided that he was full of shit that time. Just look at the trailers for the movie. When would a seal be riding in the back of a truck in hostile territory talking on a satellite to his wife back in the states? And on what planet is it broad daylight in Iraq and Texas at the same time?

  • fab

    Chris also told media sources that he shot looters up top the Superdome…and as a sniper…you are like an assassin, but in a good way. Those people are not often directly putting up a fight …but you know they are an eminent danger, so you are the executioner. That is a tough gig to handle without being effected badly. I think any truly humble and Godly man would simply go back to society and not tell the world that he killed this amount of people. That is sort of the epitomy of egotism, is it not? Those people needed to die and be judged by God, but to go and say..like, look at me, I am the best american Sniper ever..oh boy. I think all that killing made Chris’s heart cold as ice. watch him speak…no emotions…

  • Michael Brady

    Stealing the truck that needed gas? hahahahahahaha

  • Be Honest

    Chris Kyle was found to be a LIAR by a jury for his bogus story he fabricated in his book about the barfight in San Diego with Jesse Ventura. I know you are all desperate to make him out to be this superhero, but if he lied (and was found to have lied maliciously for profit) about a fellow Navy SEAL (don’t care what you think about Jesse or his service, he was a late 60’s UDT operator), why should anyone believe this story of the carjacking. You claim there is a tape out there. Someone should produce it, because there are no police reports, no ME or Coroner reports. Don’t you find that questionable? Sorry, but Michael Mooney saying it is so, and claiming some third parties he spoke to say it is so, does not make it true.
    And what about Kyle’s claims that he was sent by the government during Katrina and posted on top of the Superdome where he shot and killed 30 looters? Once again, no one can corroborate the story. Enough with the blind hero worship. I’m very conservative, but I will not support lies to further propaganda, whether it comes from the left or right.

  • Be Honest

    Chris Kyle also stated in interviews that he would be donating 100% of the proceeds from his book to the families of his team members who were KIA. I believe his profits have been somewhere around $6 million, and yet, they only gave $52,000 to the families.

  • TruthChick

    Thomas, sweetie pie….your tenacious ‘argument’ is based on a fact that even You cannot discern…and the FACT is: You Nor Chris Nor ANYONE knows the True intent of those who point the gun first and to presume so is Silly and Lacks Intellectual Veracity and Honesty…btw….the filth that rob and pillage, a sudden movement, given how nervous they usually are, COULD cause them to ‘shoot’ when they may have never meant to, SO given the FACT that you nor anyone else can discern WHETHER the ‘robber’ will Go off, Or maybe HAS the intention to murder because Murder is Just Fun, given these FACTS….DEFENDING ONESELF FOR THEIR CAR or that piece of gun, is not only justified, it’s NECESSARY and Moral….now go back to your soy chips and your effete mannerisms and let us Men and WOMEN take care of business, because clearly, you’re a Perfect example of what useless men are, the result of the Emasculation Agenda which has worked ever so swimmingly, given Your example…..I’m ASHAMED for the girly men out there who are such little girls 🙁

    I call BS on this one. This guy was so hyped and full of crap I dont believe anything he said. Chris Kyle was just full of himself.

  • Jeff

    Chis below mentions the Superdome story. That was a “media” source called sofrep.com and the source claims after a chance encounter with Kyle he told Kyle he heard there were Blackwater snipers at the Superdome during Katrina. He claims Kyle said he had heard the same thing and he had heard they killed as many as 60 people. Even if this were true.. Kyle shares this with someone he met 10 minutes ago??? Any this was the origin of Kyle being at the Superdome.. which he never claimed. The story has lone since been removed form the site even when Kyle was alive…but it doesn’t keep crazies from repeating things they never researched.

  • Shinnyhinney

  • Curtius Simplus

    See we like our stories to be stories and our news to be TRUE. That is the ‘trouble’ that this BS never happened at all, and is an utter lie. Nobody can just shot two people in the USA and walk … NO BODY! Not a policeman not you, not any hero, not even the president! That is the way it works. And in Texas there would be a Police Report, NO doubts about it. No report; Story is BS. Again you are FEEDING into a LIE because you want to believe. I am counter that BS because I refuse to be DUPED.

  • Curtius Simplus

    Autopsy report from that day, with two gunshots from Rural Texas if you please! There are not that many coroners offices and TWO Dead men from gunshot wounds on the same day … Should narrow it down. But of course this is BS so … It is meant for the Proles to feast on so they will cheer the US gov as it mass immigrates them into the Third World ( bring the people by the millions get their living standards, pretty as you please), Steals their Wealth( if that banker bailout was not a ‘theft’ I don’t know what exactly would be) and remakes the USA into something more like the UAE( that is the part about making us a Minority Nation full of LOW IQ low paid serfs catering to those few those few those wealthy special few that promote Churls lie Christ to the Proles called the People.) What is sicking is that they people are so devoid of morals, good sense and intelligence they will fall for it like a Hooker on a John!

    what that some people have critical thinking skills and others believe stupid stories like children? What is the exact point: This story is BS. Pure. Simple. And Plain.

  • Curtius Simplus

    Well shooting two people is easy enough …. Now produce SOME EVIDENCE that is not a dead man’s say so … EVIDENCE please, else I call BS. It is like that. Oh and vets ….

  • Curtius Simplus

    Bingo!

    Um No it does not. In fact it SELDOM happens that is why it is SO shocking to find a missing body or learn that somebody was murdered secretly …. Because it is SO fucking rare …. and again … EVIDENCE, not BULLSHIT will be needed else the ‘hero’ was hyping Malarkey.

    Kyle should have had no problems with the law as he shot 2 armed men in self defense. . It is legally justifiable to protect yourself when you are threatened. Seems like he could have added those 2 to his “confirmed” kill list and would have bragged about it in his book, which in turn would have sold more copies. BTW these 2 carjackers must have had friends and family that worried where their loved one’s vanished to.

    So the fools and conspiracy idiots have another crap story to spend their time fretting over. Utter non-sense, by now the families and friends of the supposed two car-jackers would have stepped forward considering all the press coverage of Chris. No police reports, secret calls to DOD offices, etc and a lot of paranoia. All the story needs now is he encountered a UFO along a lonely highway who wanted to probe him. And then the Super Dome Katrina nonsense as well. No police or press reports of 30 plus people shot by snipers as well. The best damn conspiracy by the police and reliable and credible media ever, or an obvious bunch of bull by a blogger seeking his 10 minutes of fame off an Dead American hero. I will stick with the latter and call out this blog as an attempt to make a name for a Peon.

    OK, this teaches us once again that carrying a 1911 in condition 1 is the way to go. What is condition one, you may well ask. It is cocked and locked, or locked and cocked. Chambered round, thumb safety on. What if I drop it, you may well ask. 1.) don’t drop it or give it away, ever. 2.) It will be fine. See # 1.
    Was the 1911 designed to be carried cocked and locked? I don’t know, but now you have the criteria with which to shoot…I mean search it. I have other weapons, but in winter, who doesn’t like the feel of a Mil-spec 1911 under this thick overcoat. / But I’m in Dallas where it’s warm, you may well respond.

  • Phillip Ventresca III

    If anything Kyle was a serial liar. He lied about being in the bar with Jesse Ventura, proven in court. He lied about shooting 30 Looters from the top of the Super Dome during Katrina. He lied about shooting two men who wanted to steal his truck at a convenience store, two shots to the centre of their chests while they had guns drawn on him. No record of any of that BS, no police reports, no convenience store video which he claimed police reviewed and said he was justified and let him go on the spot. All BS Lies. He even lied about all the proceeds of his book going to Veterans groups… He only gave $52,000 of the 3 million he pocketed .. Plus he was a hired Waylayer like William Munny of “The Unforgiven” another Eastwood movie where a hired assassin “killed women and children”! LIAR should be on his grave!

  • anastasia2657 .

    Two men drive up to a gas station and pull a gun on Chris Kyle (so that they could steal his car). Not long thereafter, another man pulls a gun on him and shoots him. Kyle comes home from the war and coincidentally three men pull a gun on him for reasons which make little sense. What’s wrong with these stories? They’re stinky-poo, that’s what they are

  • Kem Wills

    “Nobody can just shot two people in the USA and walk … NO BODY!” right LOL.

    If it had been a clean shoot, there would have been a report filed – easily obtained by anyone in the media. So it’s either a lie he spread as part of his PR campaign for himself… or it’s a double-murder, covered up by small town Texas cops (something that has happened quite often in this state).
    Either way – it’s not an act of heroism by any stretch of the imagination.

    I heard it was the service station to the stars and the place was filled with thousands of actors and artist and people associated with the “libtard” film industry. I heard he shot 2,000 major stars (including both Fannings) but allowed Larry Gatlin to live (so he could kill the rest of them slowly with his plastic surgery vocal chords.
    Then he flew straight up to San Francisco where he suffered some PTSD as he wanted to shoot everyone in the entire city but all they wanted to do was to buttell prong him while calling him Ginger. The stories even get bigger once he reached Portland where the smell of egg whites made him so nauseous he couldn’t even get a good aim at the 8 year old boy sitting at the table across from him (who had ripped off an extra coloring book). Anyway, his lovely wife, Mrs. Rich Sniper Widow-Chick will be taking up the work he left behind and hopes to kill 5 thousand innocent people of ANOTHER color by the end of the year.

    I can’t believe so many people are fooled by this, especially Texans, who should know how these thigs work.

    The story he gives, even with its falsities is an open and shut self defense shooting. Especially in Texas where you can shoot an unarmed person in the back as they run away with stolen property after a certain time of day.

    1) There would be a police report. There would be cops talking about it on cop forums and so on. There’s none of that going on, so Kyle lied.
    2) Kyle wouldn’t need a shadow agent to vouch for him. It is an open and shut self defense shooting. Very little investigation would need to be done. It’d be like: “ok, two dead guys (check). Two guns near their corpses (check). Video evidence (check). Interviewed shooter (check). Have a nice day, Mr Kyle…”
    3) His story of the shooting itself sounds like phoney baloney. They’re just going to stand there and patiently wait for him to reach in his truck for something? Please.

    A police REPORT is different from a criminal RECORD. Even in the most open-and-shut self-defense case, there is still a cursory investigation. What are the names of these two dead guys? Why is this only being populated via blogs and rumors?

And no one sees that except for the military and now me. And most of my copy is blacked out. Names & stuff I’m not allowed to see.

    And there may have been an investigation, a military investigation. WE will never know. His wife may know for a fact.

    What are the names of these two dead guys?
    Ask the military maybe you will get a reply LOL kidding 🙂
    The two guys was probably illegals. The police probably told the military it was clear self defense and if you read the article you would see why the police would come to that conclusion. if it was murder then it would be known, but it wasn’t. there was no reason for the military or the police to put kyle and his families lives in danger..

    And if the police is asked to not to file a report or do anything by the government the police will gladly oblige. less paper work for them. If the police wanted to turn it over to the government It would not be a local police matter it would be a military matter and you can bet the military was keeping tabs on the most lethal sniper in the US.

    Why is this only being populated via blogs and rumors?
    This was a few years ago, not long after he got out of the military. I wounder would the military want an Terrorist sympathizer to collect the bounty that was on the head of a highly decorated most lethal sniper in the US hum NOOO

    500,000 was paid by the publisher’s insurance and 1.3 million was paid from the estate aka from the profits of the book. But since she is the beneficiary of the estate and the profits do go to the beneficiaries technically and leglly 1.3 million from the wife.
    But look at the bright side. Since she is the Executrix of the Estate she has to make sure Ventura is paid from the beneficiary of the estate. In otherwords herself LOL

  • Annkaren

    What bothers me about this case is that it is stated the police called someone high up in government. Who was this person if a true story. I agree everyone is investigated for every crime no exceptions. Americans also know Chris Kyle’s company was at the Boston Bombing. He knows someone high up in government. The poor patsy being prosecuted for the Boston boming and the citizens that are being duped. There is more to all of this.

    you guys need to get a life!!your spending all this time arguing over shit that eather is true or isn’t!who gives a shit!!bottom line is while your here wasting you time bashing on Kyle and everyone else’s opinions there are people out there protecting our country and our rights so you can sit on you ass and don’t nothing but punch your key’s on your computer bashing people and calling them liars but they have or had ball’s and ten times the size of yours and the initiative to put the bong down and go out and fight for our country. if u can sit back and watch all the terrorists attacks and b.s. going on and not be proud of our veterans and the things they’ve seen and dealt with !!than u just go rent another movie and sit your ass on the couch and shut your mouth about those who have served. I don’t believe in just killing to kill for no reason. but sometimes it’s gotta be done and he was dam good at what he did! !!obviously! !!RIP thanks for your dedication and having some balls! !!

    get a life.true or not true.self defense if exactly what it is.as far as all these pansy asses putting him for doin his job what he chose too do in life and being the best at it yet! get a life just cuz you’d rather play gears of war on ps3 instead of getting your ass out in the line of fire and growing a set! !!well I think I’ve said enough!your all obv infatuated with putting other people down for their accomplishments and lack of fear because obviously your jealous that u couldn’t or haven’t done so in your life! I think anyone throwing negativity around about Kyle or any other soldiers that risked their lives probably should take a look in the mirror and ask just what you’ve done and how you’d handle certain situations. everyone can be a Monday morning quarterback but doing it and going back numerous times isn’t an easy thing no matter who u are or how badass you are. so get over yourself and realized he had bigger balls that.most and was good at what he did.that’s More than allot of these ridiculous people on here with there bullshit answers.

    You are a liar. You never did anything other than work on vehicles. Lie some more like Chris Kyle

    “So consider this story confirmed from the man himself.’ Seriously? Consider it confirmed from a man who:

    – Knowingly lied about his medal count and was told repeatedly not to publish the incorrect count (and did anyways).
    – Made up a story out of whole cloth about being told by the gov’t to “snipe looters from the top of the Superdome” during Katrina – then said he killed THIRTY looters yet there is no single shred of truth to even the original story.
    – Lost a $1.8 million federal libel and slander case by lying about punching Jesse Ventura.
    – Was a known liar and exaggerator in many aspects of his life even though he claimed to be a believer in Jesus.

    That man confirmed this story? What amazing journalism here! Do just a leeeeetle more research and you will find that this story is indeed confirmed as . . . wait for it . . . also made up.
