It’s hard to be­lieve that we’re in De­cem­ber and that 2018 is about to be gone. Where does the time go?

2019 is go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing year, nev­er­the­less. It’s Gun World’s 60th an­niver­sary year! Yes, you read that cor­rectly—we have been around for 60 years. Well, not me per­son­ally, but this mag­a­zine has. We’ve had a long run and have seen the gun in­dus­try and gun com­mu­nity go through a lot; times that were not so great, other times that were great— and, more im­por­tantly, just a lot of change. In the com­ing year, we’re go­ing to be tak­ing a look at some of those past times, as well as the dif­fer­ent thoughts and at­ti­tudes about guns, and how those have changed and evolved through the years.

One of those changes is how we con­nect with read­ers to get our con­tent to you. If you haven’t done so al­ready, head over to our web­site at GunWorld.com (or, if you have, take an­other look). There, you’ll find links to our so­cial me­dia pages. I love so­cial me­dia, be­cause it al­lows us to per­son­ally con­nect with read­ers, es­pe­cially through our Face­book page. And, through In­sta­gram, we can share lit­tle tid­bits of “gun love,” such as pho­tos, for in­stance.

Some­thing we have com­ing in 2019 to cel­e­brate our an­niver­sary is a whole bunch of prize give­aways. There’s go­ing to be some re­ally awe­some gear from some re­ally awe­some com­pa­nies, and you won’t want to miss it. To make sure you don’t, fol­low our so­cial me­dia pages—and, most im­por­tantly, fill in your e-mail ad­dress on our web­site so you can get give­away in­for­ma­tion in our Gun World News­let­ter.

One last thing: Check out the Talk­ing Lead pod­cast (Talk­ingLead.com, iTunes, iHeart Ra­dio, Spo­tify); I was a fea­tured guest in Episode #264 (Septem­ber 28, 2018). You can learn more about me and what’s go­ing on in Gun World. You can also hear me dur­ing a short seg­ment in Episode #260 (Septem­ber 5, 2018), when I dis­cussed our re­cent trip to Radom, Poland, where we toured the Pi­o­neer Arms AK fac­tory.

If you haven’t lis­tened to this pod­cast be­fore, Marty “Lefty” Holder at Talk­ing Lead pod­cast puts on a great show; and, it’s geared to­ward the ev­ery­day gun per­son.

Have a Merry Christ­mas and a great New Year! Things are shap­ing up for an epic 2019! GW
