Great deal on SWAT PDFs

I just downloaded all the 2005 issues of SWAT in one $26.99 package of the website. That really is a great deal. I didn't really look at SWAT back then because, hell, I don't know why.

I can't recommend it highly enough. What a steal. Beats reading them all in the grubby pile at the gun range!

Can't agree, enough! I subscribed to the magazine, but when someone brought up an article in a 2005 issue, I downloaded the year. It's great to be able to print off just the articles I want to take to the john with me.

I'm definitely a fan of the PDFs...

I wonder how much one issue in PDF would be? Looking for March 2005.

Zephyr-
$4.99 each, same as the newsstand copies, though not available until 4-6 weeks later.

Denny already provided you the link:

Could you let me a pdf to check before subscribe?

Hi, guys, I would like to take a look to an issue of SWAT Mag to help me to decide if I am going to subscribe, because now I am a subscriber of American Handgunner and Guns and I don't know if I had better subscribing to SWAT instead of American Handgunner and Guns. Thank you.

nik-
Thanks for the input. Don't know about your math, but mine is simple:
All PDF's are PDF standard 75 dots per inch. The watered down gif image you've posted is neither 75dpi nor in the original PDF format. Quality should be the same as any professional Acrobat PDF file you find on the net. Suggest you open these with Adobe Acrobat Reader (free), rather than some of Microsoft's rather cheesy image preview proggies.

Agreed that Flea Markets offer great prices on many things. Glad to see some are carrying SWAT. It's all good.
