    I saw it at the grocery store this weekend and stopped to thumb through it. Worst one I've ever seen. NOTHING worth reading in it. Especially for $10! :wow:

    No thanks! :upeyes:

    I haven't seen a "Book of the ..." that's I'd pay for since the 1st one of the AK and that was just because there was so much good info in one place. The AR and 1911 ones are just like ads for the latest products.

    I feel the same about most gun rags. Just expensive advertisement. I learn more on the Internet than I do from paying good money for spin and misleading articles.

    Now you know why magazines and newspapers are a dying business model.

    I like SWAT and Solider of Fortune for what they have and Im 80% satisfied with the content. I even pick up Recoil now and again based on what pretty pictures they have (same as the old excuse for p0rn, I read the articles!)
