Finally, I am able to find some firearm magazine in Save On Food, thanks to the tips from Jackson. I am too cheap to buy an issue, so I just stand there and read all four firearm magazine they have. What interest me is not only the articles, but also the advertisement. Too bad that those magazine are published in the States, many firearms in the magazines are prohibited in Canada. Out of the four magazines, one magazine focus on hunting and rifle guns. I want to try hunting at least once, but I am not a very outdoor person, and I don’t know how to dispose the moose even if shot one. Another magazine is targeted law enforcement readers. It has police stories and review on various police equipment. Another one is focus on ammunitions, talk about how to reload cartages yourself, the ballistic of different bands of bullets, etc. There is only one firearm magazine for general reader, the Guns and Ammo Magazine. It has product review, columns, history of classic firearms, shooting and cleaning tips and lots of advertisements, a perfect firearm guide for beginner. Even better is that the magazine publishes all its articles on their website. It like hitting a treasure chest of firearm knowledge. I have learned operating theory of firearms from the safety course, now I need to get familiar with different bands of gun manufacturers and gun models. Just like people need to get some fashion sense to buy decent clothes, a self respectable gun owner should acquire some firearm sense.
I have been a read of the PC Magazine since grade 9. It was the most popular computer magazine back then. Another computer magazine I used to read is the Byte Magazine, which flopped a few years ago. In Hong Kong imported magazine was expensive and hard to find. Being a poor student, the only place I could read PC Mag was at the central library, which close to where I had my math tutorial. I remember after the tutorial lesson, instead of going home straight, I used to spend an hour or so at the central library, checked out the magazines every week. Among the columnists in PC Magazine, I had been a loyal of John C. Dvorak, whose articles have good insight into the trends of the computer industry. I think my opinions on high tech related issues more or less had been influenced by him over these years. When I was waiting for my prescription at Safeway this evening, I browse the magazines section to kill time. To my surprise, I couldn’t find PC Magazine on the shelf. How can PC Magazine not carried by the biggest supermarket chain in Canada? The only logical conclusion is that it is not selling well, and Safeway decided to drop it. I have a bad feeling that PC Magazine is going to disappear soon, when its parent company ZD publication decided to cut the lose.
