    What mags are you guys really reading? I was over on another site and asked the same question. Seems folks may be just be buying for certain articles that might catch thier eye. Most seem to think the mags don't really have the reader in thier best interest maybe, the manufactuer instead however.

    Let me know what you think.

    I occasionally pick up a copy of Handloader if it's got something of interest, but in general, I don't read gun rags.

    I subscribe to Handloader. I usually pick up a copy of Peterson's Hunting and sometimes Rifles or Rifle Shooter. My wife and I are both NRA, so one of us gets American Rifleman, the other American Hunter. But I'm thinking about asking the NRA to just put the money to better use rather than sending us magazines we never read. It seems like both magazines are just plum full of "preaching to the choir" articles.

    I read others, notably American Handgunner, but the ones above are the ones I read every month.

    GUNS (when they have articles of interest)
    SOLDIER OF FORTUNE (more for news info and investigative reports rather than guns)

    I buy Gun Tests (subscription), and Shotgun News (occasionally)
    When I get to spend some time at the library or Barnes and Noble I'll read Swat, Small Arms Review, Gun List, and any of the articles in the Peterson Publications that interest me.

    Field and Stream and Outdoor Life - which I'm noticing are pretty much the same thing, so I'm going to let my subscription run out - although I may keep OL for Patrick McManus's articles.

    Gun tests - will keep that current.

    North American Hunter
    American Rifleman

    Shotgun News (which seems to be trying to re-brand itself as SGN) is pretty much it. I mainly read the historical and technical articles, and scan the ads. The articles about the latest techno-tactical-gee-whiz stuff generally get skipped or skimmed.

    Small Arms Review
    Varmint Hunter
    Shotgun News

    Those are subscriptions.
    I do get The American Rifleman which I seldom read.
    I sometimes pick something else up if it catches my eye. I mainly buy other gun magazines for the ads.

    Well I read American Rifleman and G&A. I hope most people here are a member of the NRA and read one of the 3 magazines they offer with membership.

    I don't subscribe to any of the gun rags. Too much nonsense and pseudoscience.

    Used to subscribe to Shotgun News and Guns and Ammo.

    Now I just pick one up from the bookstore if it I thumb through it and find an interesting article or two.

    I get Shotgun News every once in a while - and sometimes a friend gives me his issues (he subscribes) after he's looked through them for 10 minutes...which is about what I get from them.

    I used to pick up the occasional random rag, but I mostly avoid them now because of the biased pap that is usually in all of them. The main reason I avoid them is because most of the articles are hand-jobs to whatever brand is being written about (assuming the advertise of course...) and most of the stuff they review will never even be available to me because I am not apart of the G*d given nobility...I am but a mere serf.
