    Hmmm.

    I agree with WM. I am still relatively new to the Gun world, so I find everything very interesting. They never seem to answer anything specific though. I guess this is why I have you people.

    I've pretty much stopped buying gun rags. I'll get an Annual (wish book) for the info on features and prices, but that's about it. I do check the offerings to see whether there's a write-up on a model that interests me, but I haven't bought any in quite a while.
    I voted "Other".

    combat handgun

    Being a newbie, I find Combat H/G interesting. While I do get more info fm the internet and a couple of newsletters I belong to, I find the columns helpful. The articles on the guns themselves seem to be all the same; although there is an article on the Cobra derringer in the latest issue. Is Soldier of Fortune still around? Wow, that's a long running mag.

    Hmmmm. It's not exclusively a "handgun" mag, so it doesn't fit the question perfectly. But it does address most of the gun mag criticisms in this thread. Gun Tests. Articles on the high end stuff interests me least, since the most expensive gun I've ever purchased (ignoring the influence of inflation) was my recently acquired $525 Glock 20. And that price was mostly covered by trade, not cash. Of course, I almost always buy used too. But the mag has picked many of the lower-priced guns as best buys or even best of the bunch. And they don't do ads.

    Gun Tests is best.

    American Handgunner

    American Handgunner and G & A Handguns are both very good handgun magazines but I voted for American Handgunner because I like the personal, non P.C, no B.S. way they answer thier letters to the editor section. They don't pull any punches. Both have good articles.
    Nobody asked, and I really love the NRA, but American Rifleman seldom has articles in it that I really can relate to.

    Sofar my fav is handgunforum, but likewise.. no T-1 line next to the throne yet.

    From the perspective of someone new, I got the first impression the mags are meant to give the non-technical type just enough info to entice them... The articles are not very technical, don't do any real action history or comparisons.. They just give just enough info to hit a gun maker's website or the thread to look up the models.

    The only mag I get anything out of is SWAT. The rest I just feel like are one big advertisement with no serious reviews. The worst being Guns and Ammo
