I've always liked reading Ayoob's magazine articles and watching him on TV........very knowledgable man, glad to hear he is doing fine..!!!
Jonathan Strayer, 46, and Massad Ayoob, 64, were treated and released at Raulerson Memorial Hospital in Okeechobee, as was the pilot, William Harward, 55, Miami.
Glad that they are all OK.
Not too many details in that article. It would be interesting to find out more of what happened.
I was hoping to be able to the MAG 40 in Harrisburg this summer. I am a Mas fan. I am glad that he is ok.

Glad to hear both are ok.
"As a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights, I believe tougher enforcement of our nation's existing gun laws must be done before any more laws are enacted and put on the books."
Wow, I'm glad everyone is okay. That was a close one. I'm sure they are gonna feel that one for a few days.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Glad everyone is ok.
Close call...I've wanted to take one of MA's classes.
He has done some at his place in Live Oak, but not for a while.
Glad they are all OK.

Probably everything that Massad carries in his pockets weighed the chopper down.
NOTE: I am only making a little joke because he is OK.
He is a great guy. He sure does lug around a ton of stuff in those pockets of his though.
Lots of times Helicopter crashes do not go so well for the occupants so I am really happy that all survived with obviously only minor (if any) injuries.

I'm not much of a reader, but just got his book, Combat Handgunnery and enjoying it. PTL everyone came out ok, as stated, most helicopter crashes don't end that well.
The wise man looks for ways to minimize mistakes, a fool boasts it will never happened to him.

Glad all are ok. Lucky they were over a swamp.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
I'm glad they're alright too, right now is a time when we need all the strong 2A guys that we can get.
I do fly, and can fly, but don't take altitude higher than a rooftop for granted.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
Glad they are ok. That is why I refuse to fly. I have four times two in a helio and two on commercial jets. The thought kept running through my head the whole time that if this things quits I cant get out and fix it or bum a ride home
