Am I contributing to TFL if I order SWAT magazine?

I was just reflecting on how useful this forum is to me and I would like to contribute in some way, would ordering SWAT help at all?

Thanks

Good question James,
As there is another mag that I like equally as much? Come to think of it, I haven't seen to many gun/knife mags that I did not like Actually, I think TFL owns SWAT .

I'm happy that TFL has managed to steer clear of NPR-style 'we need your money' banner ads - or banner ads AT ALL for that matter.

Long live TFL!

Rich Lucibella is the one to thank for TFL. He bought S.W.A.T. within the last 2yrs.

If you read the mag, and check out the S.W.A.T. forum, you can get one on one with some of the Staff. You can ask questions and make requests. Some of our TFL members and Moderators contribute to the magazine.

Where else can you do that?

Rich pays for TFL out of one pocket; any profits from S.W.A.T. go into another pocket. S.W.A.T. is in many ways an extension of the concepts promulgated within TFL, with a more targeted audience.

He's a hunter and a shooter who's putting his money, time and energy where his mouth is. Hard to beat that, right?

I ordered a back issue of SWAT (Jan.2001) a few weeks ago....
Even though this issue was one of the "prior" owner mags they
still had a few copies in stock....
What other website can you talk to the Administrator of that website on the phone!

This site Rocks!

P.S. Thanks Rich for the back issue!

Brian-
Glad you got it.
As to "Talking to me" on the phone....it was my pleasure.


jamestech-
It's a real toss-up as to which I'm more proud to be associated with: TFL or SWAT. For me, it's real hard to distinguish one from the other, except for delivery mode.

Tell you what:
- Hang out at TFL because you value it.
- Subscribe to S.W.A.T. only if it's worth it.
We can ask no more than that....but we can give a bit more....free samples:

"If...you might pick up a copy"

I don't mean to be offensive...but that's a bit insulting and we really don't need the $2.50 net that bad.....honest.

Yes, Oleg is a valued Member of Team S.W.A.T. and has contributed art and editorial. If what you're looking for is Oleg Volk art (it's real good) go to his web site (www.olegvolk.net). If what you're looking for is to direct a magazine's content, publish one.

"If you're looking to direct a magazine's content, publish one."
-Wow. You're right, that is offensive. I was just looking for a hard copy of Mr. Volk's artwork, and if that's my reason for buying your magazine, why not? I didn't know he was a contributor, and am sorry for any confusion. I didn't mean any insult, and didn't expect a scolding (especially from the big man) for my interest in SWAT magazine.
