Quote from BH:
"Massad Ayoob will lead the issue with an article on the Appleseed Project, a program designed to teach you not just how to shoot and take care of your firearm, but also about Revolutionary War history, patriotism, and the responsibility of being a rifleman".

So fellow Appleseeers, you don't want to miss what Mas Ayoob has to say about his experience of the Appleseed Project. :cool2:

I had bought the magazine from time to time off the newsstand.  I just subscribed, and TOLD THEM (their signup form has a place for that) that it was because of Project Appleseed coverage.

I don't know how big their subscriber list is, but if they get a few hundred new subscriptions that mention the same reason, I'll bet they'll notice!

I've been eyeballing this magazine for a while and this sounds like a good idea!

I've been a subscriber to that magazine for about 2 years now.  I had also subscribed to Mother Earth News and Countryside magazine at the same time, but let the other two subscriptions lapse.  Backwoods Home magazine is a keeper though.  Glad to see this connection; it seems logical that these two communities have a lot in common.

I will be getting the Appleseed edition of the mag mailed to me via my regular subscription, but I might have to pick up an extra copy as a "loaner" magazine!

The cover looks good.   Got a subscription for myself and family member. 

To those who decide to sign up for a membership, make sure you put that you heard about their magazine from Appleseed.

Got a subscription, told them I was a member of Appleseed, and that I needed help with my veggies.

Pick up an extra copy to have on your gun show tables for folks to look at (along with your Small Arms Review, SWAT and Guns).  You can point to it and say 'This is what Mas Ayoob had to say.

My copy arrived in the mail yesterday.  Excellent article by Mr. Ayoob and sidebar by Ms Hogue.  Highly reccomended!
