With forums, social media, and so on with dedicated handgun hunting areas...I canít see the time and cost working out.

Iíll definitely join up again if you can put it together. When I started handgun hunting with a centerfire in the early 1980ís HHI was THE place for the handgun hunter. I joined back then and still have every issue to this day.

As the other fellows have stated, the only thing to be gained over a great sight like this one would be the dedicated stories written each month. By that I mean it may motivate more members to send in new and past hunting stories and information.

I was a late member. I posted in the HHI Mailbag under my name Jeffrey Locke and it was about the 44 magnum and the JDJ 310 grain cast bullet. I bought an aluminum cast bullet mold for that bullet. JDJ wrote that the 454 Casull could only match the penetration depth of the 44 magnum loaded correctly for deep penetration of big game. I would join and contribute articles too.

Absolutely!!!! I stopped by JDís probably 30 years and came home with a stainless 14 inch Contender barrel chambered in 309 JDJ. JD gave me a SIXGUNNER and low and behold WV Hitmanís yearly deer hunting report was in it. After reading his article I joined the next day!

I was never a member of HHI because it was a bit before my time, and then I started hearing about it when on here and other places online, then it was no more.

I would get a membership, probably largely to read handgun hunting specific articles and info, unless there is something else the club did I am not totally aware of

I think that it would be a fairly popular read, as back in the day there was no internet, just the yellow newspaper. There is a much better chance of growth now, with people spreading the word. You would probably get a lot of newbies and folks that have handgun hunted out of circumstance. It would be nice to be able to keep our old HHI numbers, as I have many items with that on it.
It was a great way to meet fellow Handgunners. I have 30 year friends from HHI.

HHI was such a great way for guys and gals who went handgun hunting to share their hunts. We all were able to see of different guns, calibers, bullet designs and configurations, and how those bullets and bullet weights worked on various sized animals. There were group hunts and people actually attended ;). It was a wonderful time to be a handgun hunter.

Itís still a wonderful time to be a handgun hunter, I still hunt with some of those guys I met thru HHI. Gun folks in general just tend to be a better bunch.
