Hello everyone! So far here on NWGUN.com, you’ve seen a small part of what Northwest Gun Magazine is about. The blogroll that you see today will continue to serve as a source of information and discussion, but Northwest Gun Magazine is not just going to be a blog, it’s going to be a publication, and more.
In a series of blog posts, I’ll walk through the vision for Northwest Gun Magazine, and also solicit ideas and feedback so that I can build it into something that is meaningful and exciting to the Northwest gun owner and shooter community. In this first post, I want to share with you my vision for Northwest Gun Magazine, and walk through the aspects of this publication that will make it “A Different Kind of Gun Magazine”.
First and foremost, Northwest Gun Magazine is about guns in the Northwest. What does this mean? There are many different aspects of shooting sports and gun ownership in the Northwest including your rights, concealed and open carry, shooting sports, land use rights, hunting, gun shopping, and defense/training to name a few. Northwest Gun Magazine is all about bringing these topics to life as they apply to the Northwest region. We’ll be focused on Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, but also cover topics pertaining to Alaska and Montana when possible. In the Northwest, we enjoy a great range of diversity in terms of the types of sports, places, weather, and natural features that embody the Northwest. This is an amazing backdrop for the stories we’ll tell in the magazine.
Northwest Gun Magazine is about quality. What inspires me and brings me satisfaction is to tell a powerful story with great writing, stunning photography, and with resources and information that has educational value. Northwest Gun Magazine is focused on using great writers and great photography and video to tell shooting and gun stories in a way that is engaging and inspiring to readers of all ages. People respond to quality – that’s a bet we’re making with this publication.
Northwest Gun Magazine is about telling both sides of the story. Have you ever read a gun review that focused on the strong points and conveniently glossed over the rough edges? I have. I feel there is a large need for more down-to-earth gun reviews and other product reviews. Every piece of equipment or firearm has “Pros” and “Cons” – I feel that balanced writing that covers both highs and lows is most beneficial to you- the gun enthusiast. By providing you with the “full story”, you will be better informed when you go to make purchasing decisions. This kind of consumer focus brings me a great deal of satisfaction!
