I am so proud of what you LRH members do for the shooting/hunting world!
Who among you can remember the outdoor magazines of the 60's and 70's? As a teenager I subscribed to Outdoor Life; Field & Stream; Sports Afield; Fur, Fish & Game. I saved them all for years in stacks that grew higher and higher. I read and re-read them, dreaming of future hunts in faraway places and researching the latest and greatest cartridges. I bought a Remington rifle in 7mm Remington magnum shortly after it first came out.
Back then it was pretty darn hard to research many of the topics that we all take for granted today. If these 4 magazines didn't write about it...or if you didn't subscribe...you were pretty much out of luck.
And even then, you only got the opinion of maybe one or two writers on the topic in question.
But today, look at what you LRH forum participants and you LRH article writers provide as a service to the shooting/hunting world. It is simply amazing to me to look at our 300,000 forum posts on 20,000 topics. Or our 120 feature articles that cover so many good subjects. All available for free at any time of the day or night to visitors from something like 132 countries from around the world.
In the past month search engines sent 141,020 total visitors via 71,260 keywords to our site. And just think of what good info they found when they got here. Simply amazing!
Most of you are too young to realize how little good info there was back in the day...or to appreciate how good we all have it today.
