Summer vacations are a time when I (am forced to :P) clean up my room, and throw out all the useless stuff. This time, I found some treasure (that I had buried a year or two ago)...

Behold, my magazine collection :D

http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/KageFoxOS/Gun%20Magazines/GunMagazines-08196.jpg
These are Petersen's Handguns issues, older than I am. These used to belong to Abba. All are from Aug 1990 - May 1991, except the last one in the middle row - that's from 1993. The bottom row has a G&A Annual, and a couple others Abba collected...


http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/KageFoxOS/Gun%20Magazines/GunMagazines-08200.jpg
These are all my issues of the SWAT magazine, dating from Dec 04 - Jan 08. Obviously, I don't have the issue of each month, just random ones I could get my hands on...


http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/KageFoxOS/Gun%20Magazines/GunMagazines-08198.jpg
These are the issues of FMG GUNS and American Handgunner, once again all random. I'd mention here that, IMHO, GUNS is the best of the whole lot, few ads and excellent stuff. Love the gun photos in there, their photographer is a real artist...


http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/KageFoxOS/Gun%20Magazines/GunMagazines-08201.jpg
Here are the collected issues of G&A Handguns. This one's bi-monthly, and my collection spans over the period from Aug 04 - Mar 09.

This is my collection of Guns&Ammo, the one I have most in number (I could hardly fit 'em all in the picture :D). Spans from Feb 05 - Mar 09.


http://i710.photobucket.com/albums/ww103/KageFoxOS/Gun%20Magazines/GunMagazines-08207.jpg
Finally, these are all the other mags, which are either special issues, or magazines which I did not buy regularly. Among them are a couple of issues of Combat Handguns and Shooting Sports, a UK airguns magazine. The 2nd (from top) row contains mostly G&A special issues, which are dedicated to tactical guns, surplus weapons, rimfires, etc. Then there's a whole crop of annual issues, from '05 to '09, of Shooting Times, Handguns and Guns&Ammo.

All in all, a grand total of 106 (I think) magazines, all of which have contributed to my knowledge base about weapons :)

Hope you like it!

Well, as of now, they are not for sale :P Will let you know whenever I am short of space :D

Thank you all for appreciating. And yes, this is partly why I talk so much about guns... all due to years of accumulated info and PG being the only cool outlet :)

@Kagefox
No wonder , why you are so well versed in technical jargin about weapons and ammo !
It is always good to read magazines of your interest and get yourself updated with new info and articles about various related subjects.

Brother this is what you were going to throw out? damn, sound like library of GUN university. :D

KageFox

No, sir, not at all! As I said, this was the buried treasure, which has been buried yet again, this time, with more care... :D

The older issues were pretty torn up... you'll notice that I am missing the cover page of the third one in the first photo. Almost all of them were in a delicate condition... I just had to put 'em together... which I did using paper clips... :)

well know i know ur treasure chest of knowledge!!! could u guide me which is the best yearly magazine to buy???

Well, about the yearlies... not all of 'em are available regularly... most of these finds (read: all) are flukes.

G&A (and all its associated stuff) is usually good, only thing with them is that most pics in the annual issues are B/W. I have yet to find a GUNS annual... from the sneakpeaks I've seen, it appears to be pretty good. The best are the G&A special issues. I read and re-read them, and never get bored... Look for them especially, if you can...

Liberty Books usually keeps some in stock (not too outdated) but at a ghastly price, which I refuse to pay, unless it is too tempting to pass over, or it's a really special issue. Agha's Supermarket usually has the latest G&A monthly... but that too is pretty expensive. I got most of mine from a tiny shop in Khadda Market. He sells them to me for around Rs 70 per mag (as some of the stuff is even more than a year old), and even gives a small discount when purchasing a larger number... Same guy sets a stall in the Defence Sunday Bazaar, usually has a slightly better variety there, as he combines inventory with other book sellers...

Hope that helps...

PS. If you'd like to start collecting, start with whatever's on hand. Look for new versions every couple of months or so... you'll strike gold soon enough :D

PSS. One of my magazines came with a complimentary Shoot 'n See Target! All depends on luck :)

WOW! What a collection KF Bro! :)

Magazines always cover a wide range of topics in the form of articles. I've always found them very informative and helpful!

I too have a similar collection of magazines, but they're all about my love for Aircrafts and Aeromodeling! (sorry no guns!) :D

One of these days an oldish grey haired short tough looking "Raddi Wala " will appear on your doorstep and offer such a good price to your servant he will not say no and all your magazines will be gone.
Hope you guessed the raddi wala in disguise.

More power to you.

What I appreciate most about you is that you write as if you have lots of practical experience. Few people have the ability to read and get correct information; you are one of those rare geniuses who get the jist of the write up without bias and write objectively.
May God bless you. keep it up.
