I think the addition of features not available on paper will eventually make up the loss of tactileness. Instead of just some still pictures of a new firearm, why not watch a short video of it in action (maybe even with sound).

DVD backups my friend. External hard drives are easier and getting darned cheap.

I know a lot of NRA members who are old enough that they do not have computers. They will suffer from this change, IMO.

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.
Chrome is great if you don't want or need any third party addons for things like multimedia or security. The whole cloud mentality I find a little intrusive. It does not play as well woth some proxys too. You're average computer user will probably use bad security software like Norton or that God awful McAfee so it wont really matter what they use to get the critters that are going to infect them anyway. I got calls to from several bought at Walmart pre loaded machines that caught critters due to sub standard security software.

I've been using Firefox and AdBlock for about 18 months now, great add-on for the browser, helps keep the most irritating adds from surfacing. If you manipulate the web address and/or block entire ad frames you can keep a whole series of ads from showing up one most web sites.

About what page was this?
Even checked the web site.

I called them to ask what's up. I was told it was their way of forcing me to call them so they could insure that I was still alive. They don't like sending magazines to dead people. They do this to old fart life members.

I was assured that the Rifleman would keep coming.

Cheers:

So we are still going to get them in print? That would make me very happy.
