I am also sorry to hear that Gary. I have only been active a few years, but found the site to be extremely helpful as I got started in handgun hunting. I feel that HHM is one of the better if not best resource out there for this info and a great place to get feedback and opinions.

I would be very interested in helping if someone/some group coalesces around a plan for continuation of the site in some way.

I'm in too! I contacted Gary about buying it, but it's out of my reach to do alone. There are others who have contacted him as well. Let's get this done!!

I also would be interested at the very least as a contributor, columnist, and/or also as a moderator if that would be of interest to the new owner/s. Unfortunately I can not help financially due to overwhelming and over-due medical bills.

Anybody have any ideas?

Oh man...bummer. This has been a great resource for me and a community I enjoyed checking in on daily. It will be missed greatly. As a younger man to the sport, it's been a great source of info on challenging topics that are not often covered in other resources. I can only hope someone will take the baton and continue to lead the magazine and keep it alive.

Thanks Gary for all you've done.

This is truly sad news. I just rediscovered this site after many years absence. It is a treasure trove of information and entertainment for our often maligned and misunderstood hobby. So many wonderful people here I never would have known existed.

I have found this site to have been an endless wealth of knowledge and experience from the more seasoned handgun hunters here than myself. And I will say that it is the nicest and most helpful group of folks I have found on the internet. With Facebook censoring and shutting down many of the gun discussion groups I feel like this site is even more important now than ever. If someone is willing to take over, is there a way we can all contribute to a fund to cover operating costs of the website so nobody is incurring the workload to run and maintain and cover the costs themselves as well?

Gary,

First of all. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STARTING AND MAINTAINING THIS SITE FOR SO MANY YEARS. GREAT JOB. So sorry it is coming to an end.

I would certainly be interested in paying a membership fee or usage fee if anyone takes the plunge at continuing the site. I believe there is a group of us that were former HHI members that were paying annual dues there that would gladly do it again. The combination of closure of this site and the demise of HHI leaves a gap and creates an opportunity for a new organization.

That is a bummer to read!

Thank you Gary for having this platform as long as you have... I learned a lot and got a ton of inspiration from all of the great members on this site!

Thank you again!

Having just gotten back into handguns again in the last few years I found that I knew little about handgun hunting as it now stands but this forum really was a great education and eye opener. I read each post with excitement and wonder at some of the skills and knowledge assembled here. Thanks to Gary for this site and all those that participated and shared their knowledge. I sure hope someone can step forward and keep it going, we almost lost our airgun forum this year but a new site was created to keep the knowledge intact. Again, thanks to all.
