Western Shooting Journal is published by Media Index Publishing Group of Seattle.
We are a regionally oriented yet national-in-scope magazine for Western firearms and gun-lifestyle enthusiasts.
Published monthly, our first issue came out in spring 2012.
Our X factor? All other firearms titles on newsstands today are basic “gun review” pieces. Similar to Car & Driver, their coverage is nearly all product oriented.
On the other hand, Western Shooting Journal’s the voice of the Western shooting enthusiast. We’ll cover not only the new must-have products straight from the annual SHOT and NRA Shows, but we’ll also use our unique brand of human-interest storytelling to cover the personal side of the Western gun world, including articles on:
· Western gun culture
· The “Open Carry” movement
· Concealed-carry laws, issues and lifestyle
· Profiles on Western gun enthusiasts, gun-friendly politicians, and celebrities
· Gunsmiths, gun artists and their craft
· Stories on cowboy action shooting
· Stories on uniquely Western shooting sports – varmint hunting, long-range shooting, blackpowder, and more
· Stories on Western shooting events
· Western hunting, knives, law enforcement
· Nostalgic pieces
· Stories on guns and women – the fastest growing segment of the shooting community
· Gun shows, the heart of the publication – we will cover the giant annual SHOT Show (the industry’s trade show, and 12th largest trade show in the country), the National Rifle Association convention, and all Western regional gun shows.
