Craig, I always liked that British gun series too. I especially liked the one that featured the Purdey .577 ULH I once owned and still miss.

Our oldest son has faithfully given me a yearly subscription to DGJ, for Father's Day, for probably twenty years running. Just received my notice, of the next year's, yesterday. What a thoughtful gift it is.

Sherman Bell’s articles on shooting smokeless in damascus barreled guns, while poorly edited, IMO, is a standout, full of good information. Frankly, I have tired of the formula layouts in the magazine with its emphasis on pretty pictures in lieu of strong, informative text.

I'll have to say that William Headrick's gun photography is excellent!

All the Fox, LC Smith & Parker articles are what keeps my interest. Sherman Bell's articles too. My eyes glaze over a little bit reading about obscure metric calibers but hey, there's room for that too.

Tom Kidd’s Fox articles, along with Walt Snyder and James Tyson’s Ithaca articles alway captured my attention. The bulk of those selections were probably in the first dozen years of publication. And as mentioned previously, Bill Headricks photography was always outstanding!

Hard to keep a specialty publication "fresh" especially when it's not all about "new product". The magazines for my other interests, cars and sailboats, get similarly formulaic and not quite as interesting as the once were in the earlier days of my infatuation with the subject. And they have the benefit of lots of new product to showcase. The "new" is a bit less vibrant in the double gun world.

That said, I still enjoy mine and I have taken a page from Craig's playbook. I randomly pull out an old issue about once a month and re-read.
