    Guns Mag 1955 thru 1968 downloadable

    If you like the old Guns magazine, you should click on this link...

    https://gunsmagazine.com/classic-gun...zine-editions/

    You can download any one of the issues in PDF between 1955 and 1968, or download them all for free. I should have posted this a while back, but just didn’t think about it...

    If you love the old Mags, this should give you enough reading for the winter...

    Thanks for the link, Marko! I was born in 1947 and grew up reading all of the different gun related magazines that I could afford, including GUNS. Treetop

    Wow!, best Christmas present ever. The ads by themselves are enough to drool over. Downloaded two issues so far to my Kindle. @ 40 megs apiece.

    Had to dosome creative digging to get to these old issues:

    https://gunsmagazine.com/classic-iss...zine-editions/

    They buried them deeper into their site, with no link on their menu to get there.

    So, here's the updated link ^^^^^

    Boy! Those bring back memories. I was in Jr. High in 1955. Somehow I managed to come up with 50˘ most months thru HS. Somehow all those issues disappeared while I was away at college. The issues from midway thru 1960 were not in the stack that disappeared since I was too busy trying to stay in college and do all the other things 18-22 year olds want to do.

    The old hard drive has plenty of room for all of them.

    Markopolo, thanks for the reminder that I needed to get the last three years of issues. All downloaded now. They are an excellent source of information for old reloading tools. And a nice trip back in time to when I was young and just getting started in the shooting and reloading game.

    Just finished the last downloads. Was surprised to find that 1969 had been added.

    Also, I was sailing along thinking everything was going well when I got a message that the "File Not Found". Apparently, the protocol changed and you had to click on the date under the picture to get the file. Just clicking on the picture, as the instructions said originally, didn't work for all.

    I'll go back occasionally to see if another year has been added.

    Thanks for posting that.!!!
