Some tips for us “Older” shooters from Mas’s.
thank you for posting this for us ‘‘old’’ shooters
Good stuff, and thanks for posting. Some of those things are starting to affect me.
Not a fan of Ayoob. I know he has forgotten more than I could ever learn.
So, shoulders are a common problem? Now I do not feel so special, just normal, I am not used to that!
I am going to write a book and explain getting old and how to deal with it.
Just curious, what aspect of him you’re not a fan of.
I can’t say anything about his ability to shoot but I disagree with some of his after action contact advice with the police. Or some of his general contact with police advice. For me I don’t think anyone should say a word without a lawyer present.
Good video. As an old guy, I realize that if I’m involved in an altercation, I will quickly find myself involuntarily on the ground. Running around/away is not an option with 2 metal knees and a metal hip. Practice getting up off the ground, maybe with a gun in your hand.
Practice with one knee one the ground, on your butt, laying on your back and on your chest. Drawing from each position as well.
His “Know It All” style is kind of a put off for me but I like his subject matter and for the most part his information seems to be sound. my 2 pennys
I agree, Mark. I can probably outrun a three year old. I think I can still pretty handily beat up on a five year old, but at my age (I only have one metal knee and after it didn’t turn out so hot I am reluctant to have another one in my other knee)I know perfectly well, I am not going to go mano a mano with someone over eight years old unless they are in a wheelchair. I need the Samuel Colt everyone is equal remedy.
For me as well
I’ve been following Mas’ advice since the late 1970s. He hasn’t steered me wrong yet.
If I go down, I know I’m not getting up. So I train fighting/shooting from the ground. 2 artificial hips, bad knee and a multi level fusion in my back (L1-S2). Yeah I’m a mess physically. But I refuse to be anyone’s victim, or to wait for someone else to save me.
I took MAG40 and didn’t get this impression. But he is confident and I get how some might perceive him differently.
He was very personable during breaks. He was very willing to chat and was complimentary to my shooting even though I didn’t think I was anything special.
I get from his videos that he seems like a very good guy. He could teach me tons and I would listen to his advice. I don’t like his advise to talk to the cops, point out witnesses, point out evidence, etc. The cops are trained in doing these things. I don’t trust cops ops enough that if point out these things they might start to think Im up to something I shouldn’t be. I could become the focus and not the true criminal. From my brief talk with a LEO on here, they just might do that anyway. So I would be damned if I did and damned if I didn’t.
Lawyer up, then talk to them.
He was a cop for a lot of years so that might be where he gets that inclination.

Oh Massad you slay me!
Straight talk from a straight shooter.
Thanks BRUCE TWO-SIX
My eyes are really good, the rest of me could use a collision repair shop…or Junkyard.
Considering he’s been a highly-regarded professional trainer for longer than some of us have been alive, he kinda does “know it all”.
He has also served as a professional expert witness, and has seen the inside of a courtroom countless times. I value his counsel.
