I have two issues of Guns & Ammo left on my subscription, and after some thought, I’m not going to renew. It’s a combination of several reasons, which because I’m a blogger, I’m going to share with you.
- Decline in quality: I fee like I’ve been reading the same article about the latest UltraBeltedMagnum/Custom 1911/tacticool accessory for the last two years.
- Lack of timeliness: I have gotten tired of reading things in G&A that I read two months ago on the blogs; that includes gun reviews.
- Boredom: Honestly, since Jeff Cooper passed, I don’t have nearly as much incentive to read G&A any longer. The magazine (to me) has lost a piece of whatever so endeared it to me.
I guess what frustrates me is that I used to read G&A for technical information, and they’ve really cut that portion of the magazine down. I still read my American Rifleman from the NRA, but I just sort of flip through G&A. I do confess that I will sometimes read American Handgunner, but that’s because it makes me laugh due to a lack of quality.
