    Can't say I've noticed. I enjoyed the write up on XDs in the latest issue.

    None of my mag subscriptions have been properly forwarded to Iraq. Missing out on Handgunner, Guns, G&A, and American Rifleman. :(

    Possibly. But it still seems to have a lot of advertisers backing it. Still informative as always. I lost about five years of back issues when I moved two years ago. Long story.

    It's a bit thin, but IIRC the last few years Jan/Feb issues were thin too. Then came the SHOT show edition and almost too much general info and not much detail (prices).

    I've enjoyed several articles lately. I agree the XD article has me really thinking about one. But so did the P30 Article. Gad, I'm going to have to train hard so I can carry the gun of the day.

    Maybe a bit, but I am assuming that the staff are all prepping for the SHOT Show. At least I hope that is what is happening.

    I've thrown them all in the trash as soon as they arrive for about the last 30 years. Yes, they take up less space in the trash bag now. The mag was pointless and content free in the 60s, and still is, IMO. About every 12 months I browse real quick to see if there's any content and nope, just the NRA going through its usual course of whining plus some articles about stuff of no interest to me. No better or worse than any other gun magazine, but every bit a waste of natural resources.

    Next month check out the Armed Citizen page before throwing it away. It's a monthly collection of news stories from around the country where an armed citizen had to defend themself with a firearm. It's always right at the beginning of the magazine after the table of contents. It's usually page 8. I always read this as soon as the magazine comes in the mail. I read the rest of the mag later if I get around to it and sometimes I don't.

    Some of the articles are interesting, and I'll usually read at least one a month, but in the latest there is an article on the Dodge Ram Pickup! My thought was WTH? If I want auto reviews I'll get Motor Trend!

    For those that don't like the American Rifleman, why don't you change to one of the other Magazines, You may find one of them more informative. I get America's 1st Freedom and have found it very informitive. Or you could try American hunter.

    Between the advertisements and the continual begging for more money, there's not much room for good reading left.
