Lucky me. I got to talk with Massad Ayoob for over an hour yesterday. And lemme tell you, it was every bit as interesting, cool, fascinating, informative, instructive and riveting as I’d expected. And I had VERY high standards on this one. The Man waxed rhapsodic on topics from “which caliber is best for self defense” to “what weapon(s) should you have for home defense (and why) and what NOT to do in order to avoid getting indicted, should you be forced to defend yourself. (Clue: do NOT jump up and down as you call 911, and shout “I got one! I got one! I finally got one of the punks that keep robbing me!) I’ve got lots and lots of counterintuitive info . . .
I’m reviewing my notes. With a bit of luck, I’ll start putting up the interview in sections tomorrow. And we have some more Ayoob-themed news.
The gun guru has graciously offered to participate in a live chat session in the first part of February. TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia can interact directly with Massad Ayoob in real time, courtesy the live blogging service coveritlive.com.
So stay tuned, and keep a weather eye out tomorrow for the first part of our interview with Massad Ayoob.
