    I know I'm about to show my age...

    When I was young I could not wait to get my next issue of Field and Stream magazine...it was like having Christmas every month.

    Soldier of Fortune magazine led me into the military world.

    I use to love even the smell of the fresh print once I opened it...kind of like when you bought that brought that brand new vinyl album...

    (Not to be disgusting) but a hunting magazine, and alone time on the bathroom throne...pure bliss.

    I'm about to subscribe to the print version of a gun magazine...does that make me an out of step dinosaur?

    I don't even read the ones that come in the mail (from the $4/year and airline miles trade-in deals I get sometimes).

    GON is pretty much it for me. I hear you on the outdoor mags as a kid. Read a lot of F&S back then too, and a magazine called Fishing Facts. The latter taught me a lot of the basics.

    Loved the pics of big jumping bass, tarpon, and muskies in those mags. Those pics gave me fishing fever bad back then.

    I need to subscribe to GON magazine again. I miss the fall fiction short story series they publish in 4-5 parts every year, among other articles. I do find that at least 50% of the articles are completely irrelevant to my interest and there is more and more ad space covering the pages of print magazines though, most of which are also completely irrelevant.

    I get one gun magazine from the NRA each month. Right now it's the American Rifleman, but they have a few other options. The price is included in your membership.

    I don't read any other gun magazines, although I sometimes browse through them at a store.

    After about 20 years reading then they start to repeat themselves.

    Specially with the ULTIMATE whatever.

    I get American Rifleman with my NRA membership. Lots of political material and kimber ads. I get the blue press from Dillon which is a small catalog with gun related articles. I bought a press from them almost 10 years ago and they still send it. I used to buy a gun digest and shotgun news off the stand. I haven't bought a magazine of any kind in a long time. Before the internet, there wasn't much else available.

    Hard to find a stand anymore. Maybe in the big cities ?

    American Rifleman is one I get as part of NRA membership. I also subscribed recently to USCCA magazine.
