This just sucks! I love paper, hate reading crap on a screen as I don't retain it. Need the additional tactile brain inputs (touch, sound, smell) to deep core memory stuff. Daniel and Joanna did us a great service, I wonder if it would have been possible to step into their shoes? I was working on another article for them, I'm in the research mode and plot development stage. I guess its going to go to PP. Do they accept historical fiction based around Parkers? I'd also like to thank all of the other authors for taking the time to contribute.

Apples and oranges. RST services customers’ wants and needs without regard for “how it should be.” They are not modern day Luddites refusing to adapt to the digital age.

That’s not a very kind reflection of Daniel’s and Joanna’s dedicated work in providing the very best in the world publication on the classic guns we’re all passionate about Victor.

But how much space will Parker Pages allow for the kind of article and illustrations we’re accustomed to seeing in DGJ?

With digital content as vulnerable as it is to retroactive sanitization, expurgation, fumigation, bowdlerization, as well as inadvertent alteration, printed copy should be recognized for having a unique indispensability.

That is, as long as "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures" is not violated.

I just ordered another run of books a great friend wrote and also had the book digitized.
The book cost is $49 per the onetime fee for digital is $2200.How does a company/periodical compete or exist these days.
Another friend just recently published his book/passion which is thicker than the Parker Story.Full of color pictures and content dust cover etc..He is selling at $175 per book which has to be at a loss/breakeven.Neither need to make money off the books.
Knowing what I know now I don't see how any publishing occurs.
But the digital version will be interesting.Book form on your computer or laptop as well as kindel's device.

As a quick observation, perhaps we should reach out to any non redundant advertisers and consider expanding our publication based on our ability to secure some of them.

Expanding Parker Pages from its current 48 page format to something with more pages simply to include more advertisers would likely not be cost-effective.

Maybe our PGCA website could stand some “rolling” advertising???

As much as we resist the digital transformation it is the future,. If collector organizations are to survive into the future we better start putting resources in video content and establishing a U-tube type channel. Todays authors of the written word will become video content creators. My son is an avid hunter and owns 4 SXS's. He turns to u-tube and other video content to gather information/knowledge about guns, duck and grouse hunting, not the written journals. I give him a book on fine guns and it goes unread. I don't think he is unusual in today's world. Young people want information on demand not wait three months for a snail mail NL. Just look at sites like Facebook, people are making fewer and fewer posts as the video content sites explode with users. Just my opinion.
