I donate mine to the local veteran's home. The staff in the office where I drop them off seem very appreciative, and I assume the veterans are as well.

I use to save them in cardboard boxes going back some 30 years. They stayed in a box in the basement until I moved. They all went into the recycling bin!

I got to thinking, why am I saving these darn things? Answer....no good reason!

To tell the truth, its the ads of the time which are gold.

I've donated some, but the vast majority I've kept.
Without a doubt those adds are golden and should be kept by someone forever. I had 1970's Outdoor Life/Field & Stream which unfortunately got moldy from being in a basement. I reluctantly threw them out.

This forum contains some valuable information as well. I personally believe this forum should "LOCK" all pictures submitted so they will never be lost again!

Only those issues with articles on a firearm I own, or articles written by the likes of Skeeter Skelton, Michael McIntosh, etc...

Yes to the above. My Brother and I have referred to these older gun reviews which were more in depth then the current feedback from older firearms. Many models now long discontinued but can still be searched for on line - good 'memory poker' .

A library!!
Perhaps reading em all over again from the beginning would be an interesting trip of comparison of today's magazines and info wherein.
