Many moons ago I used to buy Guns & Ammo 50/50 with a mate (was an expensive import). He moved away and I stopped reading it. Really used to enjoy reading Skeeter Skelton and Bill Jordon - and was unaware they had passed on. Dogface's post prompted me to google them. Following from Wikipedia - they both had very interesting military and law enforcement careers.I stopped reading them when Skeeter Skelton and Bill Jordan died.
Took the words out of my mouth. I bought books by Charles Askins, Jr., Elmer Keith, Bill Jordan, etc. Those still make the best reading.I stopped reading them when Skeeter Skelton and Bill Jordan died.
COL Charles Askins, Elmer Keith, Lee Jurras, George Nonte - all had something interesting and educational.
Today - not so much.
And anything in modern copies of 'The American Rifleman' pales by comparison when you hold up anything written before the '80's - when they directed their efforts towards politics, fund-raising and buying western properties away from their political powerbase.
