Great publication for sure, provided me with hours of reading and learning. I finally decided, several years ago now, I had no more room for them since I could never bring myself to trash a copy. Best wishes to the Cote's. Fwiw, I have 3 First Editions, unopened from their brown paper mailers.

Back in the early days of DGJ, those of us who wrote for the magazine really were "contributors". A little later on, when the first edition of my pheasant hunting book came out, I asked Dan if I could trade articles for ad copy. Worked out well for me. There were only some 300+ hardback copies of that book, and I sold the majority of them via those DGJ ads.

Stay in touch, Stan.

So, so true. Tom's pieces on Fox guns are treasures. Tom and I have become long distance friends, and hope to shoot doves together this winter with our Foxes. We almost got to do so last winter but COVID got in the way.

I will miss Ross Seyfried's articles, too. He always has been one of my faves.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

I thoroughly enjoyed the DGJ and had all issues from the beginning and they occupied two shelves of my bookcase. But early this year I realized I’d never get around to reading them again and gave away all 200 pounds of them at our Spring Rocky Mountain Vintager shoot in Raton, New Mexico. I only kept those issues by Sherman Bell dealing with shooting damascus guns using nitro—about ten issues. They found a good home and I think the new owner will get as much enjoyment from them as I did. I will miss the wonderful magazine and have fingers crossed someone will pick up the baton.


It ain't whether you hit a bird that matters, it's the fun you have even if you don't.

Got my letter today. Had a small credit so spent it on one of the DVD’s. I have the Parkers at the End of the Rainbow and recommend that one highly. I got the British guns so look forward to watching.

They say they are going to do some books on double guns and I hope that comes to fruition. Hate to say I am not holding my breath

I have always hunted with doubles. Started out with a .410 Stevens. My dad shot a Nitro Special. I would spend hours looking at the engraved British and German guns in a dogeared old Stoeger catalogue. But I had never held one in my hands till I bought a Sauer Model 8 for $35 from a WWII veteran in 1950. It was made in 1911, and I was awed by the workmanship and wood like I had never seen before. It is still my grouse gun even though I can't hunt any longer. I began picking up and shooting American clunkers. I restocked a couple. In the early '60's I got into hunting with percussion doubles for waterfowl and at muzzleloader shoots. By then I fancied myself as a collector of duck decoys and double shotguns. So, when I saw my first DGJ in the mid-90's, I was in heaven and have since enjoyed every issue.

Goodbye old friend.

Hal
