Greg, that date would be Oct. 1978, the last year I've ever killed anything with a rifle. It's been 39 years of pure bliss, excitement, challenges, and no ugly long guns. I've never regretted the switch.

I joined HHI in Oct 86, and I'm pretty sure I have all the issues since then. I really enjoyed the articles from Taffin and Doc Rogers because they included load data. Several years ago I spent some time combing through them cataloging the load data for the cartridges that I had at the time. Unfortunately I seem to have misplaced that list! I wonder if it is possible to create a digital copy of all the issues before they degrade too much. I am very happy to have found several of the authors contributing to this site, that way their knowledge and experience can be passed on to the next generation.

As a new guy I am a bit timid about making any suggestion to anyone, but would it be within the forum rules to run a poll to see how many would contribute to an effort to digitalize them. Those who contributed could get their copy for a given size contribution and it could be made available to others for sale, at a small profit for the website.

It would be a labor of love, if someone did this.

I would say that binding all the issues together would make a very
interesting read for any handgun hunter.... As close to "the horses mouth" as you can get....

J.D. WAS ALSO A REGULAR AT THE EARLY YO HANDGUN HUNTS. BACK THEN I WAS A "LONG DISTANCE RUNNER" BUT IT WAS ALL I COULD DO TO STAY UP AND CLOSE THE BAR AT THE MAIN LODGE WITH J.D. BELIEVE ME HE COULD HOLD UP HIS END OF THE BAR. HE ALSO HAS ENORMOUS HANDS AND COULD TALK FOREVER, BUT IT WASN'T JUST BS AS I LEARNED A LOT LISTENING TO J.D.

THE ANNUAL YO HANDGUN HUNT WAS THE BIGGEST AND BEST RENDEVOUS OF HANDGUN HUNTERS EVER.

I agree that digitizing all the old copies would be a great project and a wonderful resource, but we need to respect that copyright and IP rules come into play. Not sure who holds the rights: JD or the individual authors.

I joined HHI in October of 1979. That is the last year I rifle hunted. The Sixgunner articles showed me that it was possible to take any animal on the planet with a handgun. I was hooked and have never looked back. I would love to see a reprint or digital library of The Sixgunner magazines. By my estimate it is probably 2500 to 2800 pages of large format 11 x 14 inch pages. That is a lot of information. This website is the closest thing I have found to fill the space that the Sixgunner filled.
