    I was just watching an older video of Massad Ayoob's in which he couldn't recommend a 10 mm or a .40S&W because there existed no real-life experience yet. Before I PM him, anyone know what he carries these days? I thought it was a Glock in .40.

    The last article I saw said something about a Glock 30, maybe a Glock 32

    I thought he wrote it would be the LCP on the appropriate occasion.

    He's probably carrying the latest and greatest as a tryout to see what does and doesn't work. Next month it may be something else - he seems to be the kind of guy who actually tries to gain first hand experience with a firearm rather than "bench" test it and pound out another article.

    Anybody who can pronounce a firearm good or bad on one range trip is suspect in my book - and the magazines seemed to be filled with them.

    At LFI-1 in Phoenix, AZ(April 6-10, 2009) Mas was carrying either a Glock 19 or a Springfield EMP in 9X19mm.

    According to the Gun Digest Book of Combat Handgunnery books that he authored, he carries a .40S&W Glock 22 when he works in uniform for Grantham, NH P.D. so that he can evaluate security holsters(most of which are made for Glocks, instead of the current-issue GPD service pistol, the Ruger P345).

    Whatever it is, WE ALL HAVE TO RUN OUT AND BUY ONE RIGHT NOW!!!!! That way we can avoid all the random litigation all gun owners face, and also keep ourselves as tactically awesome as we can be. Because you never know, he may be the guy sitting in the prosecution's bench as the gun expert, and your 642 without the lock will get you jail time.
    Sorry for the rant, but I have to ask: Why do you care what Ayoob carries? Is he going to be at your gun fight?

    I was going to joke and say 'he kills people with his mind', but in all seriousness the FIRST poster pointed out at some point Ayoob wasn't down for the 10 and 40.

    Getting his opinion (a guy that arguably shoots for a living that is) is NOT the same as "I want to be just like so and so."

    In '82 It was a Magna Triggered Mod. 66 named "Fluffy" for LFI-I in Key West. LFI-II saw him with what he called his "Orthopedic" 1911, ambi-ed out when he crushed his hand in some mishap some time before. Mas can pick up anything and make it purr. As far as a favorite I'd venture to guess a Python is right up there, wants to play with my 3" when I can make it up Live Oak way.

    Mighty "High Road" of you there pal. :rolleyes:

    I respect Mr. Ayoob's opinion, and I wouldn't mind knowing what he's carrying these days either. Oh, and "Sorry." :rolleyes:

    What's not High Road about NOT being an Ayoob follower? He is a public figure, with whom I often disagree. I fail to see how that's "not" High Road.

    Oh, I don't know. Maybe it's the childish negativity or dripping sarcasm directed at someone for asking a question. And no, your post wasn't directed at Ayoob, even though you may have meant it that way.

    In that case, I apologize. No offense meant, OP. I'll sit the rest of this one out.

    You guys need to appreciate a good brother who has done so much to add to your knowledge base. I suspect he carries most calibers. A variety is nice.

    At the end of one of his books, he wrote that he has tried everything under the sun, won guns in competitions, fantastic competition guns, etc, but what he usually carries AND competes with is.......whatever his police department has issued him.

    Exactly, and unless something has changed recently his dept. issues Ruger 345's. They used to issue the Ruger P-90 and the most recent info I have seen indicated they had changed to the 345.

    For his personal use I have read in his articles reports of him using a wide variety of guns.

    Whatever I may or may not disagree with him on, we share a common love of the P90. That is good enough for me!

    +1, steve...

    a little over the top with cynacism, but a valid point.

    1...is the OP gonna switch to that iron when he finds out?

    2..or try to rub someone's nose in the current caliber they are issued / carrying in light of previous opinions?

    3...if he HAS started carrying those calibers, according to the original statement, he didn't then due to a lack of statistics on their performance.

    verily, #3 is why you shouldda been nicer. maybe the guy just wanted to know about and obtain the stats that changed Ayoob's mind.
