Stay Up-To-Date

I enjoy reading through Shooting Industry every month and I just looked at the online version. I had noticed your promotion of the digital edition in the magazine, but had not looked into it. I pulled it up on my phone and it was very easy to read. It will give me more chances to look through the magazine and keep myself up-to-date.
I think it will be a positive force for your magazine and allow you to reach more readers.

Move To Friendly State

I enjoyed the report about Kahr looking to move from New York to Pennsylvania (“Industry News,” Sept. 2013). I feel all of New York’s firearms industry should follow the same idea and move to a “friendly” state where they’ll be appreciated.

It’s high time we all take sides. When it comes to purchases, my business looks very closely to see if vendors or organizations reside in states that are unfriendly to the firearms family. Why spend money to help the “Gun Grabber” states when we can help those businesses in states which are not anti-gun?

Great Service, Hogue

Let me tell you about my experience with Hogue. I ordered a new Stainless Ruger Vaquero in December 2012, and shortly after, I ordered a set of Hogue white micarta grip panels from an Internet retailer.

The gun didn’t arrive until late March, and I realized they shipped me grips for an old model Vaquero. I tried to exchange them, but the Internet retailer said I didn’t meet the two-week return criteria.

I emailed Hogue to see if I could exchange them, even if I had to pay a restocking charge. They gave me an address to mail them to, but never mentioned any cost, so I enclosed a check for $20 to cover shipping or re-stocking. I had my new grips in only a week and they returned my check with them. You don’t often get service like this.

Great people at Hogue, and great products.
