I have been waiting years for someone to write about the Model 37 (besides Mr. Snyder’s book). The Ithaca is the most underrated shotgun in the world. I have 7 Model 37 Ithacas and would not part with any of them. The Ithaca system of barrel attachment, overall construction and smooth like butter action is a dream. Beats the crap out of any other shotgun I have ever owned. Steve Hart Fort Recovery, Ohio I am a life member in the NRA, and have been for some time, as was my father before me. I have often been irritated by things the NRA has done, but this is the first time I have been ashamed. I thought the NRA is supposed to defend our Second Amendment rights? I’m not so sure anymore.

I just never wrote and told you that before. After reading the John Conner column I knew I had to write and say that was one of the best articles I had ever read. There are lots of lessons to be learned and remembered. To all of your contributing authors, thanks for your time and efforts, they are much appreciated each and every month. Jim Hartzell Middletown, CT No “Supplements” Thank you for having a classy gun publication. I love the articles and, like most of your readers probably do, I own a modest gun collection. One of my favorite aspects of your magazine is that so far, at least, you haven’t succumbed to the temptation to take advertising dollars from companies selling nonfirearm related “enhancement” or “enlargement” products. This makes your magazine much more kid-safe and I have no qualms about letting my 10-year-old son enjoy the articles and photos when it comes. I can’t say the same for some other publications I no longer subscribe to for this reason. Standards do matter! Eric Hanson Price, Utah Oops In the December issue Holt Bodinson in his Shotgunner article states the difference between the Ithaca 37 20-gauge and 28-gauge receiver width is .140", 1.34-1.20". He says it is 14 thousandths when it really is 140 thousandths. A little more than 1/8". Fourteen thousandths is .014", a little wider than 2 layers of magazine cover. Wayne Raquepaw Frankenmuth, MI ONLINE ADVERTISING MANAGER: Tracy Moore, CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING: Lori Robbins, NRA Wrong? I read “Firearms Freedom Act” in “Rights Watch” in the December 2009 issue and was very impressed and proud of the people in Montana and Tennessee. But, in the official NRA magazine, American Hunter, September 2009 issue at the end of their “Firearms Freedom Act” story it is clearly stated “‘Firearms Freedom Act’ supporters have never planned to test these laws in criminal cases, and no one who puts himself in that situation should expect support from the NRA.” 6 TEL: 203.662.9740, sigbuch@optonline.net TEL: 800.633.8001, FAX 858.605.0247, classads@fmgpublications.com FMG EAST COAST SALES: Sig Buchmayr, Buchmayr & Associates, 28 Great Hill Rd., Darien CT 06820, CUSTOMER SERVICE www.gunsmagazine.com SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES . . . . . . . . . . . . 858.605.0252 Express Service . . . . www.gunsmagazine.com and click “contacts” Stop Military News?
