Would any other subscriber paid more for a subscription? I know I would have gone double the $45 for the best mag published bar none. The best part of DGJ was 4 times a year, in the mail would appear something to read that was not woke or politicized up. Go back and pick up a copy Scientific American circa 2005 and note the distinct slant to the latest agenda. Not in the DGJ and we were blessed for it. As too the digital version, I'd subscribe but not be happy and I'd probably print it out anyway.

I haven't read that many articles in DGJ that would not fit into PP. Some would need to be Part I and Part II, but most articles, especially on Parker specific guns would work into a single issue.

I would have paid more for my subscription to keep DGJ afloat and publishing their quality magazine. I'm not a fan of digital publications. I prefer to do my reading away from a computer and usually later in the evening. I too prefer to hold hard copies of books and magazines rather than fire up the desk-top.

Dean, if we have enough of an influx of articles for PP we can always add extra pages to the magazine. It will add to the overall cost of the publication, but we could adapt if need be. 48 pages is not chiseled in stone.

Now we're getting somewhere and thinking about a "solution"..... Keep going.... We're limited only by our collective imaginations....

I used my credit and some extra to get the British Shotgun by David Baker DVD/CD. It arrived the other day. Pictured here

I opted for one of their books, but I've not see it yet.

One of the best benefits for me is when I do remote hunts. Most of the time I do not have internet access. I realize I could probably down load before leaving home, but I enjoy laying around camp in the evenings and taking an afternoon break while catching up on my magazine subscriptions.
Further sitting in my blind seems to pass the time faster while waiting for a buck to show up and reading some great articles.

Mills, is that Baker CD set a regular item on their site? I looked and couldn't find it. Or was that what they meant on their books chart at $75 for each of the three volumes? Thanks.

It is. Look at the ad which includes Parkers at the End of the Rainbow and Diggory Haddoke's video
