For those of you who do not use the social news/forum website Reddit, an AMA (Ask Me Anything) is an event where a celebrity, sportsperson or otherwise interesting person volunteers to answer questions about their job/career/sport/hobby submitted by the public. The AMA is scheduled in advance so Redditors know when they can start asking questions. They are usually interactive conversations between the public and the subject, rather than just straight Q&A, and so are often more interesting and enlightening than a conventional interview. Note, AMA stands for Ask Me Anything, not Answer Me Anything (the subject is not required to answer every question submitted).
An example of some interesting Reddit AMA’s are …
- I am Jerry Miculek- Firearms expert, Special Forces trainer, Professional shooter, 90 time world & national shooting champion, holder of 5 world records.
- IamA 92 year old who served in WWII as a pilot for the Marine Corps, grew up in the Great Depression, and was a successful entrepreneur!
- I AmA Gun Salesman in California. AMA.
- We are Michelle MacLaren, Gordon Smith, Jenn Carroll & Trevor Baker, The Production/Writing Staff from the TV show, Breaking Bad.
- I’m Cody Wilson, founder and director of Defense Distributed, and the guy trying to make 3D printed guns a reality. Ask my anything.
So my question is this: are y’all interested in use arranging AMAs on TFB? And if you are, who would you be interested in AMA’ing? Gun designers? CEOs? Military Weapon Repair Specialist? Competition shooters? Gun company HR staff? Ammunition makers? Collectors? Gunsmith? Police armorer? Let me know in the comments.
