As a new Contender owner I just found out about this association and see it has a quarterly magazine. It sounds like it is mostly a collectors group and I am not a collector. Anyone know if the magazine has enough material on hunting and shooting to make it worthwhile?

SS, Though not a member of the TC association, I find the other handgun group magazines are geared more to historic and collector information with very little on hunting....Very little....Pic shows a flyer enclosed with the RCA mag.....

Thanks James, that is what I figured. This forum is great and I have enjoyed the articles here but I seem to read them faster than you guys write them.

I belonged to the TCA for several years, had several articles published, and bought several limited edition T/C's. I enjoyed it. However, it went through a period when publication was sporadic, and I dropped my membership. I have no idea what it is like today, though.

One of my hunters gifted me a 2 year membership to the TCA and the magazine is one of the highest quality rags I have ever seen as far as paper type AND THE PHOTO QUALITY is superb.

Having said that, yes it is mostly a collector's magazine, very little on shooting and nothing on hunting or reloading.

I think I need to have actually bagged something with a handgun, something I am working on but have not yet achieved.

Never been a member, but I do have the Encore that TC gave Gil Hebard when he received the "Outstanding Handgunner of the Year" award in 1999. Blued 44 mag, and the serial number is HOY1999.
