Massad Ayoob has been a law enforcement officer, trainer of law enforcement officers, pistol collector and authority, competition pistol shooter – and more. He writes very well about these subjects in books covering concealed handgun carry, Handguns of the World, combat shooting, and similar subjects. All of his books I have read have been very informative, yet written in a style that is also entertaining. To demonstrate that there is not much about handguns he doesn’t know or hasn’t had experience with, in his second volume of “World’s Greatest Handguns”, in with all the combat pistols and “Western” revolvers is a thorough chapter on Thompson Contender single shot handguns. Also included in his books are detailed references and lists of other books the reader might find of interest. These are the Ayoob books I’ve read (so far), but Amazon lists many others.
