Recycle Your Hunting and Firearm Magazines
When you are through reading your hunting and firearm magazines, please recycle those magazines. Before recycling them, remove your name and address label along with any articles you find important. Keep a supply of those recycled magazines in your vehicle and gym bag. When you're waiting to get your vehicle serviced; waiting for the doctor or dentist; or exercising at the gym leave the recycled hunting and fishing magazine behind. Some will take interest and read them, maybe even take them home. The anti-hunter and anti-gun types afraid of the truth will surely trash the magazine. No problem, you can always return with more recycled magazines! Help spread the truth and facts about hunting and firearms. If anyone confronts you in a negative manner, ask them to read the First Amendment of the Constitution and then tell them to have a great day in the United States of America!.
