For years when I renewed my subscription or picked up a few of the books, I just called the phone number that was listed. I have no idea, it was probably Joanna, but someone always picked up the phone and processed my order, never once went to voice mail or some other automated phone service.

The few people I’ve mentioned it to said the same thing but after never being able to contact them and being out the cost of a year’s subscription I figured it was just an expensive lesson.

Having written a Parker-related article for them in 2003, the Cote's and the DGJ were always a professional
pair to work with. They rewarded their contributors with a continuing subscription.
I will miss the quality of the Journal.

I'm sorry to see DGJ come to the end of the line. But I suppose this is better than having the even worse alternative where quality and content decline to the point where I no longer look forward to reading the next issue. That's what happened a few years ago when I finally stopped subscribing to another gun magazine I had bought religiously since I was in college.

I really never understood why some guys would sell their DGJ collection. I find mine to be an invaluable reference, and all of them don't take up much more than 3 feet of bookshelf space. I guess I'll have more time to reread them now.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Many years ago (I still had my hair in a ponytail) I met Sherman Bell at one of the Heritage Arms shows. A friend of mine was an acquaintance of his, and introduced me as a fellow writer for the mag (I am just a one trick pony). We had a real nice conversation, and he was selling surplus DGJ magazines, as he got a authors pre publication copy in addition to his regular subscription. He noted, “I hope they don’t turn out to be valuable collectors items someday, selling them at this price” which, may have been $5 a magazine. I told him he would feel a whole lot worse if the most collectible magazines turned out to be the ones we didn’t have an article in.
We had a real good laugh.

The best magazine I ever bought a subscription to.

Best,
Ted

I haven´t received the letter yet, but David confirmed me by e-mail that I have a credit to order back issues.

I replied by email and Facebook, but haven´t received any answer.

Anyone know what is the problem?

Back when I was writing articles, The Gun Report and the Canadian Journal, Arms Collecting sent me the layouts for approval. The articles to The Double Gun Journal, the first thing I would hear would be when a box of authors copies arrived. Some of their editing introduced errors into my articles. I did get them to print a correction once. Still was the best magazine ever and we owe them many thanks.

it was an interresting and over priced publication when it first started...

after a couple of years it became boring and redundent, not worth the ten bucks a pop price...

surprised that it lasted as long as it did...

now an on line version might be worthwhile...

ole jOe an udders here could be guest performers...


keep it simple and keep it safe...

Probably back logged, I mailed a letter with what I wanted the day after I got my DGJ with the note that they were done and it took at least a month, maybe more before it arrived.


I have become addicted to English hammered shotguns to the detriment of my wallet.

I expected to hear such comments from Fred Good, the Fred Sanford of the double gun world. Personally, I think DGJ is to be missed, and is/was the great resource of double gun collecting. No, I have not yet received my residual payment item, but I'm sure it will come soon.
