David Codrea links to this whenever it comes up, but I love these old magazine issues so much I want to be sure my own loyal readers (both of them) see the link as well. A .pdf of Guns Magazine from 1958.
I can almost smell the musty, damp-paper, basement magazine smell wafting off the screen when I read it. I love that smell. It reminds me of my father's old Popular Mechanics form the 1960s. Magazines I read in the 80s. And the smell of my grand parents house, which, because it was on the water, had a mustiness acceleration factor. And THAT house was where I learned to drive and to shoot, back during the Reagan administration.
