    whenever I looked at them, they only seemed to test/review the most expensive bikes on the market.

    The only reason I read them for is the MTB trails. But I don't have to subscribe, one of my housemates does and I just steal hers.

    Not Small Arms Review. Not by far. SAR goes and tracks down info from people in their 80's and 90's even in foreign countries and interviews them, saving historical firearm information that would otherwise be lost when they die. If it wasn't for them, the complete history of the MAC series would have died with Gordon Ingram. Same thing for Henk Vissor's story. The stuff they print is such rare and obscure information. I cherish each issue as stupid as that may sound.

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    If you can go for NFA stuff you should like it a lot. If NFA stuff isn't your thing though, you might not like it so much.

    I haven't had a subscription to a magazine since National Geographic as a young kid, and Motor Trend as an older kid.

    I wouldn't mind reading National Geographic again, but paying for advertisements rubs me the wrong way...

    My only real subscriptions:
    The Walrus
    Scientific American

    I also read The Economist a lot. Aside from that, it's mostly stuff from online. I subscribed to Car and Driver as a kid, then Macworld for a while.
