They don't seem to be beholding to anybody. And they're not afraid to write a critical review of something, either.

I have read a few articles in GUNS, but I don't have a subscription to any.

I am going to be joining the NRA very soon and I didn't know what magazine of the three to choose. I am thinking about going for the american riflemen. Is it good?

I read "Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement" a lot these days. They have stuff I can only drool over.

At the same time I must admit it is a bit scary to think that police these days actually need and can own full auto HK .223 SMGs while we can't.

Well..maybe they don't need, but that never stopped them.

I subscribe to American Handgunner. The articles are pretty good but the photography is great! There are typically one or two articles with photos by Ichiro Nagata that make me drool. He does very nice work.

SOF Mag. I love their articles. Well written. Wide viriety from a gun revew to spec ops in afganland.

SOF's the only one I subscribe to -- when I was in the service they were the only outfit with a clue as to what was going on.

Occasionally pick up a SWAT, as well.

Favorite magazine? Any one that is topped up with cartridges, of course - usually an 8 round HK P7 mag for me.

I have yet to find a magazine that even came close to the resources [that were] available at TFL, and now here.

The only one I still get, and read -- American Rifleman.

I enjoy Guns of the Old West. It's only a quarterly, but has some nice features about the lore, characters and firearms of the period. Grab others on a fairly random basis. Just like most photography magazines, it does seem that product reviews are invariably positive and often fawning.

Handloader magazine (http://www.riflemagazine.com/)


This is the most informative gun magazine published today.

Handguns seems to be improving since Jerry Lee became editor. High Road member Dan C Johnson writes good articles and they've gotten away from the OSS% baloney.

S.W.A.T actually has articles that I find helpful. I suppose it is because it doesn't focus on magic swords, rather it focusing on training. Of course they review different gear but its not a gear-based magazine.

I compare many of the other mags to a car modification magazine where all they did was review wrenches...

Petersons Handguns...but mostly because I have been featured in it:cool: and know most of the staff.

My fave is a 33 round Glock 18 mag. It looks SO tactical!

Right now I only subscribe to www.Gun-Tests.com magazine. They're like the Consumer Reports for the gun crowd. They don't carry ads, so they don't cater to the manufactures. If the gun sucks, then they tell you.

Sadly, Gun Tests is pretty ignorant in general. Unbiased? Yes. Clueless? Yes.

I would probably have to say "Shooting times" is probably my favorite while I occasionally buy "American Handgunner".

I'm really not interested in tactical stuff, am more interested in rifles than handguns and more interested in varmint rifles than AR's. JMHO.

Safe shooting.

Just about all of them except for Gun Tests. The editor was insulting and rude to anyone that happened to want the S&W/Clinton agreement reversed. He basically said if we didn't like his stand to leave. I did. I never thought the reviews were of much value anyway!

Gun List and Bugle from Rocky Mtn Elk Foundation.

I love guns but I can't see my way to paying to read about them every month. I prefer to USE them, not just look at them. :D I don't even subscribe to martial art magazines and I have ton of them! However, if Beretta came out with a magazine, I might be persuaded....:p

Man at Arms is my fave. Fascinating articles, interesting illustrations, good book reviews.

Shotgun News and Gun List, don't subscribe but pick them up 3 or 4 times a year. Get American Rifleman of course, but I wouldn't subscribe to it as a stand alone publication.

Oh, suuuuurrre. Rich pops his head in and suddenly every post is "I like SWAT!" and "Nothing but SWAT for me!"

I think you're a little confused. LE agencies can own full-auto weapons and issue them to their officers, but officers themselves can not own full-auto guns unless they have the same FFL that you'd need to own one. The only "extra" thing they get to personally own is aslt rifles with the "bad" stuff on them, ie: flash suppresor, bayonet mount, etc. They can buy a new rifle with that stuff on it now. Those rifles are ususally marked "LE Rifle" or some such thing. I guess they could assemble the same thing from parts legally too.

"The Shooting Times" has excellent precision reloading columns and "Americas First Freedom" from the NRA.
