    I read them from time to time but I have a problem with them not being so neutral a lot of the time. When you see ads for a company in the same gun rag that has a review of a gun it makes me wonder. I like to rely on information that does not have so much to gain form a good review.

    I have almost a whole year's worth of Guns and Ammo and several issues of Handgun. If anybody would like them I will gladly send them to you. I had a year's subscription. There is a lot you can learn from them but as Drum Jumkie noted, you have to know that often the articles are skewed. I hate to toss them out. I was thinking of putting them in some Doctor's waiting room. :D

    Every so often I buy one of them when I see something I may have interest in while at the grocery store. Thing is, they are like $6 or more off the shelf nowadays and the internet has made print all but obsolete. But I do also get American Rifleman from the NRA

    A year's subscription to Guns n Ammo was, like, $13. I know they charge much more by individual magazine. Isn't that weird?

    I like NRA's Shooting Illustrated and I read Shooting Times now and again. Although, The Shooting Times has gotten so thin over the years :mad:

    American Rifleman
    Handloader

    IMHO, the rest are garbage written by duphi.

    Read a glowing report of a new P.O.S on a page, and see a full page advertisement for the P.O.S. on the facing page.

    Always remember, gun rags are not interested in purveying information, they're interested in selling advertising.

    I am with Sonic! Shooting Times is one of my best preference's. And some "not all" articles in Guns and Ammo.
    Of course there are some great specialty articles in the NRA Magazine. Like the ones on the Colt 1911, 1903 Springfield, Eddystones, M1 Garands and others.:)

    Just once I'd like to read a semi-objective point of view. Off the rack $500 rifles shoot MOA and 338s WM are easy on the shoulder.:confused:

    Yeah, they make it pretty obvious those articles are bought and paid for...
