We wanted to give everyone a place here to comment directly on the magazine, what you like or don’t like, and maybe what you’d like to see more of in the future.  

The content of our magazine is also largely determined by what members submit.  If you are thinking about writing an article, we can help you with any questions and listen if you’d like to bounce some ideas around.  We might also be able to help you with locating additional research information.  Look for guidelines and photography posts here in the future too.

Thank you,

Brad Dunbar

Hey Larry

That’s not a bad idea.  Maybe someone with some knowledge to share on that subject will be inspired to give that a whirl.  There have been a few articles that were sort of in that vein in the past, but I’m sure there is more out there.

Brad

I like stories about particular rifles- who used to own them and how they used them.  Vintage photos are the icing on the cake.

The next issue will actually have part of a collection of old photos that one member accumulated over the years.  I like them also and I think more old photos would be welcome.  

Another idea we talked about was showcasing one or several Winchesters from a member’s collection on a page or two, sort of expanding the format of the calendar.  Possibly a rare gun or one with interesting history or provenance, and having room for a paragraph or two and several photos. 

Hunting or shooting experiences using old Winchesters are good too.

Brad

I agree, there has been some detailed forensic work done by our members diving into reams of factory records. ..old catalogs…and a myriad of rimfires. These fine firearms have been what initiated many a Winchester rifleman, who went on to become a Winchester collector. Someone needs to tell their story.

I have no problem with that as long as it does not bore too many people.  I would need some help with the photos though, my picture taking skills are not WACA magazine worthy.

Jeff,

It is extremely doubtful that you are going “bore too many people”.

What camera do you have?

I have an old Nikon D70 but the camera is not the problem, it is the guy pushing the button.  I am trying to solve lighting issues.  The natural lighting here in the desert is too harsh and my artificial lighting is insufficient for full frame rifle shots.

Any/all suggestions are appreciated.

Motion passed, looking forward to the article! I’ve been studying on adding a .22 to my little collection but reading is a little scarce on the subject.

All kidding aside, JWA is right. Pics in the recent issues set the bar pretty high, IMHO. Just getting started on the current issue. Wow.

I’d like to see a short story or two about an historically significant rifle or one that belonged to a famous person. Another possibility is an article about the info archived in Cody and how that information is used, processed and preserved.

Rob,

Thanks so much for sharing the additional photos. It’s really fascinating to see all that product in an original setting.

The photo essay makes one want to make a pilgrimage !

Incredible!  The “Winchester Collector” article was outstanding but it appears to me that there is enough material here to write a book, if someone writes a short background story on each featured item.
