Default American Rifleman RIP

I just got my Rifleman this AM. (I'm a life member) There's a tear out telling me that the Rifleman is gone. I have read my last one. From now on I'll have to read it on the Web. How in the hell can I take my computer with me into the can??

OH and they'll include lots of spam (ADs) with the web edition.

Bah Humbug

I hate to say it but print media is dying. While this does not bode well for writers and photographers and everyone associated with that line of work, it makes the new marketing media of places like FTF that much more powerful.

In another 3 to 5 years, places like a well established forum community will be one of the top three marketing targets for all things in direct relation to the product's audience.

As to the spam, use Mozilla Firefox and install the addon, Adblock Plus. It's real easy to find and install useful addons and it is pretty effective at managing advertizing. I didn't install Adblock right away on my new computer and was amazed at how many adds I hadn't been seeing.

Print media is going away and the quality of the reporting/articles seem to be going downhill. I wouldn't mind so much if the quality stayed at the level I expect but it seems that good writers expect to be paid better than the not so good ones.

You can exempt websites from using Adblock. Like say a gun forum you visit often and want to keep around.

First It must me nice to get told They just stopped sending me mine.

Second who uses firesnail (Firefox). That browser is like surfing the web in SLOW MOTION. Try google Chrome fast and secure. Everything you need in a sleek easy to use design.

Third There will be just as many ads in your online version as there is in the print version. So if you don't like it DON'T READ IT.

Why do I want a bunch of wasteful PAPER mags laying around my house when I can read it on my Ipod, ipad, laptop, ereader. I myself being a techie am glad to see major mags going the digital route.

As for writers and photographers, nothing is really changing they type articles on a computer and photographers now use DIGITAL cameras. So it cuts cost and may cut down the amount of ads you see in the digital mags. Because now they don't have to either A: Pay someone to print the mag or B: Own the printing equipment that is costly to buy, own, supply, and maintain. The cost of gas is rising the cost of materials like wood and ink are raising. Digital means you have to install some more servers that last years and you may have to buy some more bandwidth.

The NRA isn't the only one going that route. Like JD said, printed media is dying and we're starting to see it.

I for one like have the printed version because if there was an article I liked I could save that magazine. Sure the online version has archives but how far back will they go? I've got magazines from 5 years ago because they had some good tech in them that is still relevant.

Get a free dropbox account. Store your PDF's or whatever in it. Free online storage that will last more than a lifetime for magazines. It's even more safe from destruction than a physical copy because it's stored in the cloud and on your local computer.

This is the first I heard of this about the rifle man magazine, need less to say I am sad, yeah tech is cool, but I like somthing tangible. Also I dont see them making my membership cheaper, even though they are saving money. There goes taking my magazine with me wherever I go like fishing or wating in the car for someone at the store. I dont take a computer every where, another note seeing pepole with there computers at every place I go erks me, especialy when its a couple and there out to be together but yet they are on there laptops or phones! And I am not about to go spend more money on more tech to read it on the go, which in a year the tech will be out dated. Just give me back my print!
