    I was wandering what gun Massad Ayoob carries and how he carries it. Does anyone know? I have seen him in PD TV several times carrying a glock .45 but am not sure, as a matter of fact I remember they were filming the show in Prescott (where I live) :). Sorry to get off topic :p

    I always get the impression Mr. Ayoob is just your typical, hard core gun nut, and likes a little bit of everything. Some nice revolvers, a good 1911, and some of them new fangled wonder guns. Just a gun nut that get paid to indulge.;)

    Massad Ayoob carries whatever Massad Ayoob wants to carry.

    Sometimes it's Jack Bauer, and sometimes it's Chuck Norris. Sometimes he carries both.

    If you don't get your answer here, he posted just the other day over at www.smith-wessonforum.com .

    I know he pops in there every now and then.

    I believe his duty pistol is a Ruger P97 or, at least, it used to be.

    Mas could carry a single shot 22 and still beat most of us.......I read a book on monday where he said he carried a glock.45 and a j frame as back up(ankle holster)but it was a couple of years old.

    Mr. "Booya" tells Chuck Norris what to carry.

    Now that is funny. Funny because it's more then believable. even John Wayne would check in with Mas for his appropriate carry piece.(other than a SSA)

    There was an article in a gun magazine a while back where he was asked that.

    His response was that he usually carries whatever gun he is testing for the magazine.

    If I remember correctly I saw him once with a Glock 26 doing a class.

    Mas shoots a variety of stuff.

    When I spoke to him last year, he mentioned Glock as a routine carry.

    Seriously, though, you can put just about anything in his hand and he'll hit inner rings with it.

    I had the pleasure of spending an hour or so with one of the people he's personally trained, and who is one of his trainers for the LFI course series. Bob Smith. Good guy. Also runs the mixed use range near here.

    I watched Bob and Mas train shooters for most of day one on the LFI course (got some pix), and watched both of them, when necessary, take pistols the students were using and demonstrate technique. Didn't seem to matter what the gun was, Mas and Bob seemed right at home.

    Later, I did a little shooting of my own. I was having trouble staying in the rings. Bob came over and watched for a bit. I handed him my pistol -- one he'd never seen or fired before -- a Taurus PT911 (9mm), and he proceeded to put almost all of a magazine into a two-inch circle at 15-20 yards, off-hand.

    Well, okay, it clearly wasn't the gun.

    My point is that, when you shoot enough, when you practice enough, when you achieve mastery of the art, you can use darn near anything and get the hits.

    When it all goes down, I want him on my side. I know I can toss him whatever's in the bag and he'll be just fine.

    My favorite quote that he is credited with. He was once asked about his favorite $1500, 45. He supposedly answered. " A used Volkswagon with a Glock 30 in the glove box."

    John Wayne wouldn't need anything else other than his trusty Colt's Single Action!! ;)

    I also remember him mentioning that he often carries whatever he is going to be writing about in an upcoming magazine article.

    My favorite quote was something to the effect of "Now I'm not a big guy... Once you get all of the guns off of me I'm about ____ pounds."

    Funny... I always picture John Wayne with either a rifle or a Mac-10...

    If Mas is -really- smart, he's buying a lot of stock in some company right now, and tomorrow he'll tell us what he carries...

    "...wandering..." You were doing what?
    "...Massad Ayoob..." Friendly guy. Unlike most of the high rollers. I still owe him an apology after he sat down with us two Canadian bozos at Second Chance, long ago, and tried to start a friendly conversation. If you read this, Mr. Ayoob, we were in awe. Please accept my apologies for our rudeness.
