What are some good gun magazines? Anybody read them?
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 gave up Magazines when i got my 1st Iphone
Still get American Rifleman of course & Guns 'n Ammo was my favorite-
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.
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 am happy to be sending my magazines to hawaiifrank........who actually doesn't live in hawaii at all. I hope he enjoys the magazines. There's lots of good reading in them. Put them in the magazine rack in the bathroom and your good to go. Get it? Good to "go"?
I think i need a charger in "there" for my iphone tho
Only look at them when I run out if things to look up on my phone. Then I find something that I want to look up on my phone.
Hmmm...........I don't have a smart phone. Maybe that's the difference. And Hoss, you laughed, I KNOW you did.
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
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.
I used to pick up Guns & Ammo and/or Shotgun News to read at work. Havent read either in a couple years.
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.
Yeah, they make it pretty obvious those articles are bought and paid for...
And the "new" 1911 sells for $350 and eats up wadcutters with nary a stoppage, and ya can cover 10 holes at 50 yards with your thumbnail.
