Introducing the January Issue

Welcome to The Vintage Gun Journal, your free-to-view monthly magazine for all things British gun and rifle.

Our mission is to develop our readers' knowledge of British sporting guns and promote their continued use in the field.

Wishing all our readers and advertisers a Happy New Year. England officially had a 'White Christmas', though the snow fell a couple of days late here in Caynham. Frosty and seasonal, however, it certainly was.

We managed a couple of days out shooting locally, one in driving rain, one in crisp, frosty sunshine. Shooting activities remain unpredictable as the restrictions placed to combat COVID 19 change almost weekly.

Meanwhile, business carries on. Auctions have been showing very strong results, dealers likewise. We continue to correspond daily with enthusiasts and interest in British Sporting guns and rifles shows no sign of ebbing.

As we enter 2021, I'd like to thank you all for your continued support. Readership numbers are steady at around 7,000 per month, which is not too bad for a publication dedicated to a small niche in the shooting sports world.

Please continue to tell us what you would like to see more of and read more about and we'll try to oblige. Relevant reader contributions are always welcome.
