I read Shooting Sportsman, which I consider by and large an advertisement with mediocre content. I used to read Greys but I don’t consider that much of a gun magazine. Any suggestions? Any Brit magazines worthy of subscription?

I just cancelled my subscription to Shooting Sportsman because of the lack of content I'm interested in. The articles were even advertisements. Diggory Hadoke puts out a few monthly articles on vintage guns in digital form. VG Journal. He hasn't put anything out this month probably because he's busy shooting.

Shooting Sportsman was much better when Galen Winter and Michael McIntosh were alive. I noticed that the articles seemed to devolve into ads for canned hunts after they were both gone. Even if I could afford to do that sh1t, I wouldn’t. Not my cup of tea.

I like looking at the English articles, above, but, they don’t hold my interest like a magazine in my hand does.

The decline continues. Joe’s Sporting goods, in St. Paul is swimming in guns in the used department, that have pretty much been dumped there by the family of elderly bird hunters and shooters.

They literally can’t display it all.

Best,
Ted

I subscibe to the British publication "The Field" it covers several sporting subjects and always includes a British gun artilcle or two. It seems to focus on driven shooting events. Another well turned out but pretty much an advertising magazine is "Covey Rise" includes articles on guns, dogs, as well as canned hunt ads. (articles) "Project Upland" magazine is a nicely turned out quaterly magazine with main focus on upland hunting but includes gun articles as well.

Here in England I read The Field, which is very glossy and covers fishing and foxhunting as well. The newish lady Editor is a horsey person but there are still good articles and gun tests.

I also subscribe the the USA version of Shooting Times. Not too much about shotguns, but useful articles about older firearms. Terry Weiland is good.

I'll put a word in for 'The Field' magazine. Monthly and with a broad spectrum of articles. Donald Dallas contributes an interesting piece quite often. I don't subscribe to any other shooting/gun magazines in England but will sometimes pick up an odd copy of something if there is something of interest. Lagopus.....

I’ve seen the Field and I like it. The in-laws never know what to get me for Christmas so I’ll put that on the list. I’ve been hopeful that the editors at Shooting Sportsman will gather in the contributors from DGJ. Great opportunity to improve that magazine. Thanks for the suggestion.

I cancelled Shooting Sportsman last year after being a charter subscriber of that magazine and its predecessors. A friend gave me a lifetime supply of The Field, so I don't have to subscribe. I also cancelled American Rifleman, so I no longer wait at the mailbox for any print items.

Just go back and start reading DGJ over again, one a month will last you about 12 years, then you can start over....
