I wonder if my local Lowes Foods or Food Lion will have it?
Link Posted: 3/11/2009 4:40:07 PM EDT
You could at least take a picture of the cover

Just think about it, the whole AK lifestyle from building to target practice to collecting, right next to hunting and fishing and sport bikes. It could happen
Link Posted: 3/11/2009 5:45:55 PM EDT
I'll be checking the book stores tomorrow for it.
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 10:02:45 AM EDT
Same here.... Thanksfor the heads up.
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 10:22:33 AM EDT
this was my baby I pushed my company into making happen!
Hell...I haven't even seen the finished product yet!!

It has a number of articles written by people never published before, so not the same ol same ol.

Includes feed back from combat vets of Iraq and Afghanistan, historical stuff, users info and a lot more.

Lot of hard work went into that issue, we did the whole thing in about 30 days flat........

If it sells well it will become an annual.....

feed back, both good and bad is welcome as long as it's constructive.......

I bought it at Publix on Monday.
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 10:35:31 AM EDT
I had no idea about this initially, but when I was at the supermarket in the magazine isle and had to get it. lol
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 2:03:36 PM EDT
I was just wondering about the AN-94. It's hard to believe that thing has been kicking around for 15 years now. Should be an interesting article.

I've always got my eyes peeled looking for it when I am in Russia, but I've yet to spy one. We were in Moscow last summer and I saw a lot of pretty high-tech looking weapons, but no Nikonov. I try to keep abreast of these things, but a lot of the stuff I saw, I couldn't identify at all. Not surprisingly, most of them seem to incorporate some Kalashnikov elements though.

Anyway, got to run down to the supermarket...

Where can i subscribe?
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 3:57:40 PM EDT
You can't subscribe, it's what we call a Special Interest Publication
A one time deal, unless it sells really well and becomes an annual........
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 5:46:48 PM EDT
Will they be sending some to Guam? Please
Link Posted: 3/12/2009 7:12:12 PM EDT

Link Posted: 3/14/2009 4:55:54 AM EDT
I checked Thursday night at Haistings and Books A Million, no luck.  I'll check Walmart.  Name some stores you guys are finding it at.

I did the same at Hastings and Wal Mart, but had no luck. I'll have to keep looking too.

ETA- Tried Borders yesterday and couldn't find it there either. I'll try Barnes and Noble sometime today hopefully.

I picked one up last night, and you did a good job gunwriter, it is well above average from normal Guns & Ammo fare. It is selling like hot cakes around here and I had a hard time finding a copy in Green Bay WI. So I'm quite sure there will be another issue...there is alot in the AK world to cover yet, such as the Galil...and the interesting history of Valmet AK's...heres another idea;what kind of quality exists in the "Kyber Pass" indigineous manufactured AK's from Pakistan? A test fire by someone in Afghanistan might be interesting. What does the Finnish Defense Force think of their newly aquired Chinese AK's? Plus there are other "classic" articles from G&A from years past that were pretty good...some of those also might be resurrected. How many AK-type semi-autos have been sold to the public since the election? I am also a published writer, mainly an out door writer, and from a pure "literary" point of view...it is also above average for a gun rag.

Its not going to replace the AK, infact the AN94 has been in the Russian military since the mid 90s, and the AK74 is still the standard issue rifle. I believe its only being used by special units such as spetznaz and their KBG(its still the KGB even if the name has changed)

Nothing will replace the AK. atleast not anytime soon.

Arrrghh.... I thought this was a New AMMO magazine (PMAGish)..

Checked three places around here with no luck.  Living in BFE sucks!

Can anyone send me a copy?  If so, PM me.

I'll be in the Dallas Metroplex, next week, so a trip to Barnes & Nobles (we don't have one), it is.  I hope they have some left by the time I get there on Tuesday.

I'll be making the trek to Barnes an Noble today.

Great publication David!!  Thanks for helping to make this happen. I snagged the last copy at my local Hastings last night.
Only typo I've noticed is the two pictures, each with three AKs, on pages 29 and 30 were swapped.  The text with the pic on
page 29 belongs with the pic on page 30 and vice versa.  Great mag with lots of eyecandy!!  Once again, thanks!!
