    Just curious what your favorite gun mag is. I normally grab a couple copys of something off the newstand and flip through them. If something catches my attention I buy the mag and read it. Shooting times and handloader are probably the two I buy the most. While grocery shopping today with the better half, I came across a mag I hadn't seen before. Western Shooting Journal. Ok mag, some good articles, but seems to be geared more for women. Or at least this particular issue was anyways. Most of the articles were written by women and it has woman editor. I'll flip through the next issue better. If its the same as this one, geared more towards women, I probably wont buy it again. As I am not a woman, no matter what toe nail polish my daughter paints on me, it really just wasn't for me. :D So what do you guys read?

    I don't typically buy the gun rags. Or any magazines, for that matter. Maybe pick up two of all kinds each year.

    But standing in the store waiting for my wife, Guns and Ammo is the one I'm holding most often.

    There's this AR buyers guide type mag that comes out every spring & fall I believe; by Harris Publishing; I have several copies from last couple years. Worth every penny.

    I never really found anything interesting in gun magazines but just the deal of getting an idea to buy another weapon which I cant afford during the time and thats stressful.

    Shooting Times, from the early to late 80's. Then, sometime in the early-mid 90's it turned to crap.

    Right now, I don't subscribe to any magazine whatsoever. LIE! Shooting Sports Retailer. Forgot that one. ;)

    I haven't subscribed to any gun rags since I got online over a decade ago.
    I will occasionally buy a copy of Handloader or Rifle off of the newstand if I find an article that I like.
    Used to be a die-hard American Rifleman and G&A reader all through grade and high school. Once my old favorite authors retired or passed away neither mag was quite the same anymore.

    Places like TFF have much better info than any magazine printed these days...and the company is better too! :D
