Default Military Surplus Magazine

Has anyone picked up this magazine? I saw it at the gas station the other day before the hurricane hit the northeast. I figured it might be a good way to kill time if the power went out. It has some really interesting articles. I havent seen it on any magazine racks around here. I was just curious if anyone else knew anything about it.

as a former C&R collector,this seems to be a very bold move. from what i have seen in the last 2 years,prices are way down on both more common pieces and the rare stuff. and,not as many people can afford the luxury of collection spending. also,competition with a magazine from various collector web sites re gaining knowledge is huge. i do wish them luck. a game effort,but i don't know.

I was talking to a guy at work and he was saying it was a first issue. I couldn't find it online either and there's no mail-in subscription card. If c&r is your fancy then this mag is awesome. Articles on garand, m1 carbine, k98, mosin nagant, k31, m48, 1928 and m1 Thompson, ppsh, m1917 s&w, 1911, tokarev, p38, and cz52. The articles are informative, giving info on manufacturing, weapon history, and range reports. Lots of pictures. For me personally, it was a gold mine of milsurp info

There wasn't even a phone number/email? I wonder if I can find it around here.
