    I have noticed that places like airports and train stations, etc. have stopped selling firearm, hunting, and sporting magazines. While doing so I have noticed an increase in "dirty" magazines so it really doesn't make sense why. They can't exactly say they don't want there kids seeing it otherwise they would get rid of the "dirty" magazines. Anyone else experience this?

    Don't know where you live, but they're on the grocery store shelves and were on the shelves in Atlanta last time I flew through there.

    Stores put out what sells. If it doesn't sell they use the space for something else. Ask the manager to stock what you want then back it up with your money.

    Where do you live? East Coast?

    This summer I bought a Guns & Ammo at O'Hare, the busiest airport in North America.

    Last time I went through Newark (New Jersey) they had G&A, Shotgun News and SWAT. They don't have a big selection but then they have limited sales space so stock what sells, pure economics not anti firearms.

    What individual magazine racks have is really based on whatever the distributor provides an individual store with. I believe it has to do with sales, or what they think might sell. Businesses are out there to make money, not to be ideologues.

    I bought a Combat Handguns magazine at the Airport in Orlando on the way back to Minneapolis in late June. They had a pretty decent selection of gun related magazines.

    The 'dirty' magazines in airports are there to sell to businessman travelers to buy when they are away from their wives. They can 'look' at them in their hotel rooms in privacy. That's why downtown business hotels have them also.

    Wives don't get that mad if you buy Guns and Ammo and bring it home. They look askance at "Buns and Whammo".

    Very simple.

    I tend to bring my own when I travel on a train. I don't fly but had to pick up a friend at an airport recently. There were a few "gun" mags on the shelves of the news stand.

    Here in southern utah, if you try and buy a gun magazine in a store, you'll be in BIG trouble.

    the fat, short, middle aged woman cashier will want to talk to you about guns for like an hour.

    god, and it's deer hunting season now... I can't go anywhere with guns in my face!


    Seriously though, if you want to live in a gun haven, move to Southern Utah. I can't walk in a parking lot right now without seeing a few rifles in peoples hands and in trucks everywhere I look.

    Much to my surprise there were a few gun rags for sale in the Chicago O'Hare airport when I was there for the Chicago Custom Knife Show two weeks ago.

    What amazes me are places like Target who sell teen and rap magazines with half naked girls and convicted felons on the cover but not those dangerous gun magazines.

    Because guns are bad! Only criminals use guns, and only the Police and Military should have them!

    A few years ago I noticed that it was almost impossible to buy a firearm-related magazine at any of the airports I passed through. It seems that things have changed of late, as I've been seeing them in all the airport magazine racks I've looked at recently.

    You don't see them because they are normally sold out.
