I'd go for it John. I have enjoyed RLN since day one.

We'd increase the subscription a little, from $10/year for four issues to $12.50 for five--which for present subscribers wouldn't apply until renewal.

Anyway, was wondering what you think.

Thanks,
John


MD Looking forward to your and Eileens’ approach to a Special Edition. I find each issue quite special already.

Please feel free to provide searchable indexing or some such on your site. It really is a convenience when reviewing previous articles and topics.

All this Reminds me that I’m due to renew though.

I'm in the same boat^
Went to download the latest issue and found I need to renew.
Special issue sounds good to me.

I think it would be a great Idea. Rifle loony news is always well written and entertaining. Very few magazines , if any, are held to the same standards as RLN.

I would like it. I would hope that it would have more gun gack in it. I love to cook but the gack is what I am hoping for each issue. I would even like re-prints of previous articles or from the gack books. New reloading data is always appreciated as I gave up on testing every new powder that comes down the pike.

I would also like to see "Loads that work III" for new cartridges and powders as well as the old favorites.

Whatever you and Eileen do I am sure to enjoy it.

Log onto www.riflesandrecipes.com.
On the home page there's a "toolbar" at the top of the page.
Click on RIFLE LOONY NEWS, and a drop-down menu appears.
The option at the top of the list is "Join or Renew Rifle News."
Click on that and follow the prompts.

Thanks,
John

First of all I think this is a great idea.

But now, my fudd-ism rears it's head. I'm one of those...ahem...older types who just prefers reading hardcopy. And I read a lot, every day - it's what I do professionally.

I was until very recently a subscriber of yours, and IMO you are the very best out there, but I had to let my initial subscription lapse because the information was not right in front of my face. And when that happens, I dont access it or read it.

I recognize it's a bit much to ask to have the hardcopy sent when it comes out, but is it possible to push it out in say .pdf, in email to subscribers when it issues? I don't mine paying a bit extra for this.

Or, I suppose an alternative solution would be to receive an email alert that the issue has been posted, with a link embedded that I can click onto, provide the password and then print out.

I would then read it, prolly with a nice fire crackling in my hearth and our equally senior but less fudd-like dog at my feet curled up and all nervous about the occasional sparks.....

Just a thought,

There is different, and then there is DIFFERENT,
I am sure John and Eileen would appreciate all of our ideas.

Blu_Cs,

Thanks for your kind words about us, but there are at least a couple of ways to get around your wanting to read hard-copy of RLN.

First, it IS in .pdf format. Eileen just checked it out on her Chromebook, and when she logs onto the latest issue a print icon appears on the upper right of the screen. I just logged on with my Lenovo lap-top, and when I right-click on the first page of this month's issue, a drop-down menu appears--which includes "print" as an option.

Second, as I explained in an earlier post here, in 2014 a subscriber e-mailed Eileen, asking if we could print a book collection of all the RLN issues, because he often wanted to read it at his hunting cabin, which doesn't have Internet (or maybe even electricity--I don't recall). We didn't think many subscribers would be interested, because everybody gets access to ALL the back issues when they subscribe, but we decided to ask some other subscribers.

A bunch said they'd definitely buy a book copy, including one who said his wife was tired of the stack of print-outs in the bathroom next to the "reading chair." So we went ahead and ordered a "test" printing of 250 copies. We normally order 500-1500 as a first printing of our books, but we weren't sure about this one. Turned out we had to order an addition printing of RIFLE LOONY NEWS: THE FIRST FIVE YEARS within a few months, and have reprinted it a couple times since. Five years later in 2019 we published THE SECOND FIVE YEARS. Now some people are ordering the 2-book set.

Hope this all helps.

John

I think the fifth issue is a great idea since I have enjoyed all the issues you have posted. The edition coming out in winter is also a good idea.

I print it out to read, suits me better.

Just read "The Tiger". Fascinating. Thanks.
