GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT

Handguns is good. Go to ebay and search for gun magazines. Distributors sell 3 years of guns n ammo for $9. Got mine there a few months ago. Awesome deal!

I will Third GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT as well as Swat Magazine. It usually has detailed articles on weapons. Now that the Firing Line has bought the pages, I could recommend to try it out! Chris@pro-tac.net www.pro-tac.net

Shotgun News if that even counts as a magazine.

Be careful if you get more than one. I have on several occasions bought one mag for a trip up north and a different one for the trip back. Got to re-read half the articles from the first with different titles in the second mag.

The best reading is Small Arms Review. G&WLE is great eye-candy, but the articles get VERY repetitions. I mean how many times in one year can you review a Rem 870 with a tac-light, and the M4 in every conceivable configuration??? I still subscribe though. I didn't know that SWAT magazine got bought out, that's good, because it was trash before.

Small Arms Review rocks, they have insights on idustry news and events that most gun magazines don't. Lot's of class 3 arms info in this magazine. You should also try Guns&Weapons for Law Enforcement, American Rifleman and S.O.F.

SAR, definitely. Every time I get one of the other gun rags, I regret the money I spent on it. Also get--Gun List and Shotgun News-- Lots of deals in both. A good price guide on what you are buying and selling.

Small arms review Shotgun news (for the deals) and Gun tests (to know whats good)

Every month I get Guns and Ammo Guns and weapons for law enforcement. American Rifleman American Handgunner Hunting and three Shotgun News I love em all but the three NRA mag are very repitious in their arcticles. I would also highly recomend G&WFLE It has alot of cool stuff us citizens cant but.

The most truthful one is "Gun Tests", and I get Shotgun News to check prices and read Fred's Rants.

In my humble opinion I beleive that American Handgunner is the best magazine out there. AG is the only main line mag. that has the balls to say a product sucks. And since Guns magazine is by the same publisher and writers that it is probably good as well although I have not read it. Shooting Times is also pretty good. One mag that really sucks is Combat Handguns, this magazine will not tell the truth for anything. Everything they review is the best and when asked to make a comparison they always take the pussy way out, just like Guns & Ammo.

And I thought I was the only one. Fred rocks! I might not agree with everything he says, but dammit, if everyone thought like he does, I'd be a happy camper...er shooter.

I get: Guns and Ammo Guns Magazine Shooting Times American Rifleman To be honest some issues of any one of 'em will be pretty good with stuff that interests me and sometimes they suck and don't interest me at all. All these rags write about all types of guns. If you like one type of gun (like handguns only) you would probably like a magazine like Handguns. Likewise if you like other types better, get a magazine that suits those types. You'll probably enjoy reading them more.

GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT SMALL ARMS REVIEW Both are great. But my favorite is SHOTGUN NEWS - I buy more shit out of there. My wife hates it when the new issue gets to the house!
