I am a subscriber to this magazine and normally enjoy it, but in this issue they had an article by John M Taylor that was really disappointing. The main focus was on trade-name shotguns and while a good portion was accurate, there were some glaring mistakes. Most notably he discusses a Belgium made J.P.Clabrough. To my knowledge all Clabrough’s were Birmingham guns. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Anyone else read the article?

I spent some time in the car world and in the keel boat sailing world. Enthusiast magazines tend to follow a pretty similar path and it's easy to see why. After a period of time, just about all subjects relating to that interest have been covered. They HAVE to recycle topics. They are mostly appealing to people who have a casual interest or are relatively new to the subject and on their way to a deep dive.

Most regular posters here are in the deep dive category. We typically know as much or more on the subject than the authors. Can't be helped. And the stuff we find really interesting, the masses find a tad boring. Too much detail. Too esoteric.

South Carolina Wildlife has a great article on Gunsmith Jim Kelly of Darlington Gunworks, for those who don't get the magazine.

Sporting Classics has a lot of big game hunting and reprinted older stuff which I like. I get tired of the articles which are just glorified ads for the latest swanky lodge or resort.
