Guns And Ammo, We Hardly Knew Ye

Well, G&A is well on it’s way to going the way of Newsweek.

Magazines.  Not the spring-loaded ammunition feeding apparatus, but the old-school print media.  Sure G&A has a website, but still relies primarily on subscriptions for advertising revenue to make a buck.

And it just shot itself in the foot…

Dick Metcalf (the long-time editor) just wrote a piece (In the December issue) regarding gun control.  ‘REASONABLE’ gun control.  In a magazines devotes itself to the proliferation of…Guns and Ammo!  What?

Most gun owners are reasonable people.  But, if riled, they will get steamed.  And take action.

NOT violent action, but political action.  Like taking their hard-earned dollars elsewhere.

Shooting Times?

This just in - Mr. Metcalf has been FIRED from the writing staff of G&A!

Best you know from whence your bread is buttered, Bubba!

  2. Mr. Metcalf’s opinion is nothing new. Back when I read G&A religiously it seemed he seemed kind of squishy about gun control. The tone of his articles always seemed that gun ownership should be more for the landed gentry than the hoi poloi that make up the rest of the country. Preferring reasonable gun control is like preferring reasonable censorship.

  3. G&A has spoken. The apology can be seen at this link, and probably other places.

  4. He was retiring anyway and I guess he FINALLY decided to tell the truth about his beliefs… I’d dropped them years ago, so I really don’t care…

  5. I stopped buy G&A years ago when it turned into the equivalent of Reader Digest with gun pics. Short stories fawning over every new gun and every new gun was great!, whether it was or not. Sometimes all the maker did was add a different finish.
    Good riddance to Metcalf the Dick.

  6. The consumer has spoken. I’ve not read them in years, but if they could fire this guy, I might just give them another try.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
