SHOTGUN NEWS has been around for decades now. If you're interested in firearms, militaria, collecting, reloading, or simply need some ammo and a sling for your Japanese Type 38 infantry rifle, you've got a pretty good chance of finding it in SHOTGUN NEWS.
It also includes shotguns, rifles, pistols, revolvers, black powder arms and kits from which you can build your own. After you get that Model 1860 Springfield together, you can find a socket bayonet and forage cap in SHOTGUN NEWS.
Most modern firearms require you to make the purchase through an FFL dealer in your community. Most such dealers charge a small fee for taking delivery, but you can save a significant amount of money purchasing from dealers who advertise in SHOTGUN NEWS. Some of the arms are deeply discounted at certain times of the year.
SHOTGUN NEWS also includes some great articles on guns, ammunition, collecting and market trends. It's like a big classified section with a lot of notations, comments and a few articles.
I've always enjoyed SHOTGUN NEWS and I gave it five stars. If you're a shooter, collector, hunter, outdoorsman, military historian, re-enactor, or living history enthusiast, you'll love SHOTGUN NEWS.
Both my husband and my brother love this magazine. They can't live without it!
SN is an odd publication. It is a large-format shopping magazine like the old Computer Shopper magazine used to be, but it also has great articles. There are vendors that sell everything related to this hobby. So, you can dig thru it looking for that odd item, or you can see what is brand new to the market and what it will cost you to get your hands on one. In the past few years, SN has really picked up its feature articles too. They contain really great, informative, articles about subjects that I appreciate including DIY projects, history, and collectibles. This is not like any of the other mags that mostly show the latest and greatest with super-tech photographs and reviews. It is great for those who are building collections, buying&selling, and keeping a finger on pulse of their industy or hobby. It is also a great place to look for Curio & Relics, military surplus arms, and militaria that being imported/re-imported. So, it is unique amoung other magazines, but it is a great one to keep around.
Maybe I was expecting too much but this publication typically has NOTHING to do with SHOTGUNS??
In fact the most recent issue I have has not 1 story about shotguns...if you are into rifles and pistols this may be the magazine for you, but if you are into shotguns, don't even think of picking this magazine up...they really should change the name, it is misleading.
