article about .38 snubs can have some tidbit about specialty ammo (like Mag Safe) or an article about black powder guns might have a mention of some rust-proofing product or method, etc. It typically takes me about 1 hour a month to scan all the mags on the newsstand. If there's some decent articles, like by Ayoob, Clint, Hack, etc, I might spend 2 hours a month at the newsstand.I haven't bought a gun mag in MANY years.

so, when you're 'skimming '

the gun rags, what about the crowds of people you so distain? Hmmmmm.


it would be a real quick 'skim/glance' while maintaining a southern/blind 180degree defense of your backside.



and STILL retain that wealth of free 'skimmed' info, [i can see it ,in my minds eye now!]

you are one of the best there is ,.223fan ! :poke:

All the while, the rest of us actually go out and shoot. There is no substitute for real practice!

Reading is fine but proves nothing without real life practice of what you have learned.

well one thing that reading can get you is the ability to arrive at apparently logical conclusions that others would rather ignore and attack your base credibility... correct? ;)

223 fan why would you be interested in 38 snubs when the splits are so far apart relative to the other pocket pcs? especially with the trick, expensive loads that would be hard to duplicate for training purposes?

i have to admit that i scan the rags for the pretty pictures..... and sometimes get humor out of objective unbiasedness of the writers ;) Better than looking at SI Swimsuit addition? Maybe not... better than debating with your wife which plug in air freshner smells the best at the sto? every time.

i think people are frequently embarrassed to admit they read gun magazines because they fear others will assume the reader blindly digests and regurgitates everything they espouse... but... a little bit of <font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font> of things i'm interested is worth a hell of a LOT more than things i could care less about.

gun mags... good distractions.

to think people learn about shooting in gun magazines is to assume they learn about humping by watching porn

cheers

The problem with gun rags is that they are big advertisements written by whores.
Ever notice that EVERY gun is a good gun? The worst anyone will EVER say about any cheap POS gun is that it's "combat accurate". They might mention that they had a few malfunctions per magazine, but that's ok, it's to be expected while wringing out a fine firearm :rolleyes:

They're whores because they espouse whatever the current vogue in "tactics" and gear is. You aboslutely MUST have this new gadget, which is of course the most expensive model, or you won't be able to get you animal that year, or can't survive a gunfight.

I like reading Bart Skelton and Jeff Cooper's anecdotal articles each month for entertainment. The only magazine I actually get is American Rifleman because they have some great history articles. But otherwise, why bother? Is a minor model difference in this month's latest and greatest 1911 really worth reading 8 pages about? Not to me.
