    none. they all seem to be written by 12 year olds, and edited by 9 year olds. i'll sit and read one at B&N if it has something of interest on the cover, but i wont waste my money on shoddy writing and unscientific comparisons, i.e. the sig shot sub 2" groups at 25 yards while my taurus 24/7 shot 6" groups; the Taurus is the better gun overall for no reason other than i'm a sackriding whore who was paid by Taurus to do this article.

    i want detailed teardowns of each gun reviewed and shots taken only with a vise. this gives me an idea of quality of workmanship, reliability, and repeatable accuracy without human compensation. all they do is basically rehash what a manufacturer claims it will do, and attribute any failures to "possible limpwristing". i also want gun to gun consistency reports... i dont like "first looks" with a pre-production sample. it tells me that their reliability of manufacture is shoddy if they're not willing to re-report on a production model. i also want "long term tests"... keep the gun for 6 months and report back after a few thousand rounds.

    and lastly, i'm sick of some 300lb hillbilly who cant even spell "hillbilly" telling me a USP Tactical is "very concealable" by lodging the butt of the gun under the flab overlapping his belt.

    SWAT is OK. At least they print articles on things other than the latest MUST HAVE, NEW AND IMPROVED, COMBAT READY 1911. The rest of the run rags are absolute shit.

    84% of articles are about gear. 10% are on shooting skill. 5% are on Tactics. 1% are on MINDSET.

    The priorities are all backwards but it's hard to put a picture of a shiny chrome high-cap MINDSET on the cover of your mag.

    I just picked up my reverse two-tone MINDSET yesterday. I still have to break it in, though.

    Lies.

    You couldn't afford a MINDSET and even if you could you wouldn't know what to do with it.

    You caught me. It's actually an airsoft MINDSET. But it feels like the real thing.

    You can still put an eye out or chip a tooth with an airsoft MINDSET...

    It's okay, I wear my gas mask when I'm using it, that way I protect myself from the MINDSET, and from my own rank farts caused by eating too many Fritos while sitting on my couch watching Steven Segal movies.

    Combat Handguns and Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement are readable, but most of the rags are just crap advertising whores.

    I still don't know if we're talking about magazines you read, or magazines that hold bullets...
