    I've been a subscriber to CCM since last year. In the 1/2 dozen copies or so I have at home, I can already see changes. I'ts become more polished and I'm seeing more adds by well know gun and accessory makers. The only drawback I see for now is that it's available by subscription only and if you don't have access to the internet or know someone who already gets it, you're unlikely to be aware it exists. While they may not be planning on issuing a newstand issue any time soon, I'd recommend putting more advertisements into mags like Shotgun News, Handguns, Guns & Ammo and others that are read by handgun owners. Maybe one of the new gun shows, like Guns & Ammo TV or American Rifleman TV, can also do a spot on them.

    The current issues of American Handgunner and the NRA"s America's 1st Freedom both have full page ads for the USCCA and Concealed Carry Magazine.

    I saw the CCM add in American Handgunner yesterday. A few more of those in the high profile mags and CCM may start needing to put out a news stand issue. The people see of the adds, especially in well know magazines like AH or G&A, the more they're likely to want to take a look at the new magazine.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm glad you saw the ads in American Handgunner and America's First Freedom. We're also in SWAT Magazine this month! The ads have been pulling pretty well.

    As soon as we can afford it, we'll get on the newsstand. We've had a pretty big newsstand distributor show some interest, but it is just too darn expensive!

    Sorry that I don't post more often... I guess I more of a lurker.

    Thanks again for all your support.

    Tim

    Cool Subscription renewal

    Tim

    Is it possible to renew my subscription online? I tried to do so via the website and was unsucessful. I prefer to pay online for the sake of ease.

    KRobb,

    Yep you can do it. Just select the length of time that you'd like to extend your membership by and just type your subscriber # in where it says "Subscriber Number" on the check out page. This is the number abover your name on your address label.

    I realize that it's not quite as slick as it could be... but we're working on it.

    Thanks.

    Tim

    Shameless plug!

    I think the new issue of CCM is officially out 23rd according to Maria - tho haven't got mine yet - hoping tomorrow. However - how's a bout a sneak preview eh?

    Back in late June I took some pics of my step-daughter - and one of these is this month's cover pic. I am somewhat pleased needless to say - thanks due almost entirely to having a very pretty young lady to model for me.

    She is wearing a K&D Holsters Belt Defender - set up on left side for cross draw, and containing the Rohrbaugh R9.

    There are only Two magazines that I subscribe to, SWAT and Concealed Carry. Those are the only two that I like the foward (no or little "goto page" so and so to finish an article).

    SWAT 3 year Subscriber
    Conconcealed Carry 2 year Subscriber

    At the moment, I don't plan on ever letting them lapse :).
