I found the piece below from Guns & Ammo Handguns web site interesting. At a time when many chains choose not to carry any hunting and shooting related magazines, it’s refreshing to see a store chain that embraces hunting and shooting media.
Shotgun News Dominates Wal-Mart
Core title in every store and more.
By Scott E. Mayer
Recently we learned that our sister publication, Shotgun News, reached a new milestone in shooting, hunting, fishing and outdoor publishing. As it stood, Shotgun News was already the only publication in the outdoor category available for sale in every Wal-Mart store. The significance of Shotgun News to Wal-Mart shoppers was further recognized by the announcement that the world’s largest retailer now offers the world’s largest “guns for sale” magazine at the outdoor checkout counter of 1,700 of its more than 3,000 stores.
Shotgun News publisher, Robert W. Hunnicutt, remarked, “Where the rubber meets the road, the world’s largest corporation is preferring our title to any and all competitors.” Our congratulations go out to our co-workers at Shotgun News.
Shotgun News is published three times each month including seven perfect bound issues with increased editorial for collectors and shooters. Pick up a copy today at any Wal-Mart or click here to get your subscription to Shotgun News.
