For those who get this rag...have the last few issues seemed awfully thin to you?
A little, but like wmhawth, Ive been drooling over the XD venues in the magazine.

None of my mag subscriptions have been properly forwarded to Iraq. Missing out on Handgunner, Guns, G&A, and American Rifleman. :(
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
just a little. don't know why.
An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

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.

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!
EOD - Initial success or total failure
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.
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
i liked my AR but recentky switched to the American Hunter just to get more hunting inifo, i wish i could get both, but that would require more $$
