    Volume 1, Issue 1, March 1960. 57 years and counting.
    The beginning of Shooting Times.
    The newspaper format lasted about 3 years, I would have to count the issues and I forgot to do that, before it changed to the typical magazine format.

    I remember one of the first issues of ST having a photo of Clint Eastwood and Peter Brown (Lawman deputy) perusing merchandise on a table at a gunshow somewhere in CA.

    I loved Skeeter Skeltons stories about the kids (Joe and me, or something like that) growing up during the depression and the trouble they could get into, all somehow involving shooting and guns. And then there was his "buddy," Jughead Johnson.

    I have 3 years of these in binders -- I think the binders cost more than the mags --
    Really liked graham burnside on cartridges --
    The newsprint is getting a mite brittle -- Probably should pass them on --
