R.I.P. Precision Shooting Magazine

Precision Shooting Magazine has long been considered THE source for serious technical articles on rifle accuracy.  For me it was the first magazine to buy an article from me and I am proud to be able to say they published my works a couple of times.  So, I feel like I am saying good-bye to an old friend.

My contacts with Editor, Dave Brennan have always been cordial and professional, he is a true gentleman.

Some in the industry may point to the end of PS magazine as a further indication that the public will not commercially support a technical journal.   I would argue that there will always be a market for high quality technical articles that truly educate and inform the reader.  Hopefully other publications will see this as an opportunity to fill that need.

There was a time when some of the gun magazines seriously backed writers with technical knowledge and ability to write such quality material.  The reader may not realize how much time, effort, and ammo can be spent to produce an article.  When we are talking about a research piece that is designed to test new ideas or products and enlighten the reader, the preparation for such articles is expensive.  Personally, I hope an editor or two see this as a market opportunity and start producing some in depth technical features.

It’s with great fondness and respect that we say farewell to the Precision Shooting Magazine.
