Interesting NRA memorabilia.....

I ran across a few old NRA magazines the other day....There were some interesting articles....They are from 1936 and 1938....I like to look at the old ads too....

When I was working for American Rifleman back in the early 1990s I used to love to go into the library during my lunch hour and read the old old old issues. The ads were a hoot.

alaskabushman....The 1936 issue with the 'New Model 70'..was the first one I turned the pages on....I had to look at the cover again..and said to myself.."wow"..yes the model 70 was new in 1936.......

Mike...I had no idea U worked for 'American Rifleman'..must have been pretty awesome....Yes..the ads are unbelieveable....$24.95 for a model 92....I bet most folks scrimped and saved for one....

Keg,

Yep, I was associate editor (number 3 editor on staff) from October 1990 to April 1994.

It was a great job, which I loved, but I didn't so much love the working environment, especially after we moved into the new headquarters in Virginia.

That was a really bad time politically for NRA, the board of directors was going apecrap and making live miserable for just about everyone on staff, a new editor took over at rifleman who was an incredible moron, and NRA management was engaging in a series of layoffs whose entire purpose seemed only to be to make up for their own poor decisions AND crush the spirit of the remaining staff.
