Hello all,

I've been chatting with J.D. Jones and floated the idea of me restarting Handgun Hunters International. He said he would have no problem with me getting the organization going again, so I am currently in fact finding mode. I'm not saying this is definitely going to happen, just that I am exploring it and would like to at least get some handgun hunting community in the works.

I'm looking for input from former as well as perspective members on a few topics. From the past members:

What was the best thing about HHI or what do you miss the most?
What value did HHI provide to you?
How much of your membership was just to get The Sixgunner?

For prospective members:

What have you heard about HHI?
If you knew about HHI before J.D. shut it down, why didn't you join?

I may have more specific questions based on how y'all answer, but that's good for starters. If you want to give me a bunch of details and feel like a longer communication about HHI, email me at ryan@hangunhuntersupply.com

Also, as a reminder, I am already digitizing and giving away the back issues of The Sixgunner. You can sign up for free at handgunhuntersupply.com/thesixgunner


Thank you all!

I had never heard of HHI until you started making them available for download. I've enjoyed reading each one and learned a lot from them. I would be very interested and will join. Are you considering this as an internet publication or printed? I would think it would be easier to get advertisers for an internet publication in this day and age also.

I was a member for maybe 15 or so years. Looked forward to each issue and learned a lot from the articles posted. I think a lack of submitted articles helped to kill it off. I submitted maybe three but I suppose I could have done better. It was harder to send things in back then compared to nowadays.

I think it's a good thing. I spent 30 years of my life writing stories and keeping records for it. It was an excellent learning tool and source of information for all the members. I was honored when JD put one of my stories in the last issue.
We owe him so much. Continuing HHI & the Sixgunner would be a great tribute to him.

I was just reading “the latest issue” today.

I always really appreciated the first hand knowledge of good loads from various members. Read today about 45 Colt loads running a blistering 1400+ fps.

Always enjoyed WVHitman’s XP exploits. I revisit those stories semi-regularly as a fellow XP fan.

Loved J.D.’s Editor’s Notes & disclaimers. Thoroughly appreciated everyones total engagement in the sport & the Sixgunner.

Count me in on a reload of HHI.

I was a member at the tail end of things. I'd join again if it came back and would like to see it in a digital format.

I enjoy reading the posts here of successful hunts and various experiments. I think it would provide the members here, and elsewhere, a forum to expand on their stories without taking away from the site.
