    Concealed Carry-----Massad Ayoob

    Well I was walking around Barnes and Nobles today while the Miss's was at TJ Max. I ended up picking the above up. I've read a couple of chapters. Someone quoted him on here so it looked like a good read. He has great points and even better reasoning. Anyone else read it or take his classes?

    Most of what Mas writes is gold. He knows his stuff.

    I've wanted to take one of his courses for some time. But when he's in this neck of the woods, I'm never free. I've missed 2 chances now, and it torques me off. He's BTDT.

    He's one of, if not THE, premier experts in handguns and SD. His stuff should be prerequisite to carry.

    I would love to take one of his classes. On my wish list (if I win the power ball) is to take at least one of his classes. I read as much of his articles and books as I can get my hands on.

    Mas is indeed a well-recognized authority. It is one of many reasons I am proud that he is on the Board of the Armed Citizens Network. I thoroughly enjoyed spending a long weekend with him at the last NRA meeting. Network members all have access to his frequent input on our website and Facebook pages, as well as in the monthly Journal.

    The above referenced book is one of his best!

    Yes, and Yes.

    Took his LFI-1 back in the early 90's, and had my own epiphany as a result. He's opinionated to be sure, but he also is quick to give you the benefit of the reasoning behind his opinions. In the Gravest Extreme is his seminal work... look past the somewhat dated hardware info and concentrate on the mindset. One can argue the fine points (e.g., don't use handloads for self-defense), but the rest is pretty much bulletproof advice.

    Thanks for brining this up. Have to admit I was not aware of Mas Ayoob, so I will have to check this out. That book sounds like a good start.

    I'm a big fan of Massad. He answers questions on Glock Talk under GATE Self Defense.

    If you're new to carry, I suggest In the Gravest Extreme as a first read. About 3 times.

    I learned how to shoot from Stressfire, and someday I will take a MAG class with the wife. The new book is a good one. My wife pre-ordered it on Amazon I think, I got it when it first came out and it was worth it.

    I don't read a whole bunch but when I do I really put hours into it. Definitely one of those, I think I saw another book he wrote and go back and get it.

    Although I love his writings and even attended a 5-day course about 30-years ago, exactly what has he been there and done?

    He's a professional gun rag writer and an Auxiliary/Reserve Police Officer from a small town in NH. A highly intelligent Individual who teaches his own brand of self defense "Stress Fire" (Point shooting) believes in the Marshall/Sanow index of stopping power and if memory serves misanalysed the Platt/Maddox Miami shootout.
