IT WAS A SAD DAY FOR ME WHEN J.D. ANNOUNCED THAT IT WOULD BE THE LAST ISSUE. THE SIXGUNNER WAS A GREAT PLACE TO SUBMIT HUNTING STORIES/READ ABOUT OTHER'S HUNTS. IT WAS ALSO A GOOD SOURCE FOR HUNTING HANDGUN INFO. WITHOUT J.D.'s FRONT PAGE COLUMN IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME, BUT I AM IN.

Thanks for the input - keep it coming!

Yes, if it gets started again, The Sixgunner will be in digital format.

Since I missed being a member myself, can anyone tell me what the benefits of belonging to HHI were besides The Sixgunner and the HHI hunts?

The HHI big buck contests were a lot of fun. Members could enter their best bucks in the contest with other handgun hunters. It separated us from rifle hunters and made our trophies more "special".

JD had the Kellys at Mag-Na-Port make custom guns with HHI sns. I had all the #3s( unfired) and all but one (.375 JDJ Contender octagon) burned in my house fire in 2002. I don't collects guns any more and I shoot the .375 a bunch.

Biggest draw for me was "The Sixgunner". Wasn't much media re handgun hunting available then.
I would be up for it.

I think most here would like it.
I am not sure it would be feasible for your time and money though.
There is so much instant information available now...Just stating a known truth here.
If this is going to be an endeavor that is out of passion for the sport with no concern of cost or time-By all means go for it!

I would love to see a restart. I was charter member #992 - since 1979. The Sixgunner magazine writers defined handgun hunting for my generation. I wrote several articles over the years as did many others on this site. I know I am “old school” but being a member of a recognized organization, paying dues, etc. shows commitment and defines a group to others. I have several HHI patches on my hunting gear that have “triggered” conversation with other hunters and shooters over the years. The HHI big buck contests were great. I won the Whitetail division in 1984 and have a HHI sn Contender as a prized possession. I never attended one but group outings - hunts and shooting matches would likely draw decent numbers. Put me down for a membership.
