“Why should the government get to have all the fun,” said publisher Roy Huntington, as he announced the latest offering from FMG Publications. “We want to stimulate the shooting sports economy by introducing GUNS Magazine to the world. We have an incredible group of Americans who write for each of our titles. Sharing their firearms skill, knowledge and enjoyment of the shooting sports will provide more incentive for consumer involvement and hopefully, spending.”
GUNS Magazine is the third FMG Publication to make the jump into cyberspace, joining business title Shooting Industry magazine and trade publication American COP in the digital arena. The bonus Internet circulation created by the digital editions is provided to current advertisers for free as an added value incentive package.
