Probably not for you, since there are very few if any articles on guns but I am going to mention it for the women who read this thread. GRIT. I grew up a prepper and every house in my family subscribed. I STILL use patterns purchased from the back cover to this very day. And it's one of my most frequent stops on FB.

None. They are all on the watch list. Go read them for free at the library, have your subscription sent there.

I've reduced mine down to American Hunter and Handloader magazine. Dropped countryside and backwoods. After 10 years they start repeating themselves. I have been considering reading Playboy for the articles though.

Not a magazine but I would recommend the fox fire series. Out of publication but they can be found.

Backwoodsman has been a favorite of mine for years.

Yesterday, I picked up a new-to-me magazine on the newsstand that piqued a jaded old-timer survivalist like me enough to shell out $10: "Prepper Survival Guide." I have not had time to read it cover to cover, but it is not a cheesy magazine harping on gear and gadgets. It is very content-heavy: 129 pages with NO ads.

I may even subscribe to it, which is saying a lot considering I have not subscribed to a magazine in years. I just hope they keep it up.

I didn't see any subscription info but will write to them to find out more info.


Publishers:

Centennial Media LLC
40 Worth Street, 10th floor
New York, NY 10013


This is the issue I bought:

https://www.ebay.com/i/323890892869?...8aAvBHEALw_wcB

As of this writing, there are no internet editions of the magazine.

If you wanna learn a lot from the 6-7 volumes that make up the series they are well worth the money at used book stores and open up windows into how things were done before modern machinery and technology.

I have all of the Foxfire series. Unfortunately only started reading the first book. Not much detail yet on anything except for making best use of a pigs head. Hope as I get farther into the rest of the volumes it covers some good stuff. Keeping optimistic tho.

Remember it puts you down as a person who is ready.

The mail carrier will know.
If it doesn't get delivered properly, the neighbors will know.
The government will know.

If you are OK with all of that have fun.

Foxfire is a great series. The first 5-6 books are the best, lots of in depth detail and diagrams of how things were done and built. The latter books tended to be more interviewing people and writing down their stories, it's still interesting but not nearly as useful as the first ones.

The first book has everything you need to step by step make all corn moonshine as well as diagrams of 3 or 4 types of still and a step by step of how to build a copper still. I think book 4 has an update on the moonshine story in book one that answers some questions and gives another set of plans for another still.

Their articles used to be something like: "by collecting old windows you can build this green house" and it had a picture of a pretty nice nearly free green house. Now their articles tend to be more like this:"by spending $3000 you can buy this greenhouse kit" and there is a picture of a small but nice greenhouse with all the bells and whistles and electronic controls.

I personally liked it better when it showed how to boot strap things rather just what fun things you can spend your money on.

They used to have an option where you could buy 10 years worth of their magazines bound in a single volume for around $75 then switched it to a download and now I can't find it at all. Although if they do still offer it I would suggest reading their early volumes rather than what they have produced in the last 20 years or so.

I look at newsprint and online listings for estate sales that specifically mention books. MANY treasures there!

Why sub to a magazine? Everything you'd want to know is available free online.
