Breaking News: Harris Publications Closing Down

    News just hit today that Harris Publications is closing down. You might recognize the magazines they publish:

    • Combat Handguns,
    • Guns & Weapons for Law Enforcement,
    • Pocket Pistols,
    • Survivor’s Edge,
    • Tactical Weapons, and
    • Special Weapons for Military & Police.

    According to Harris Publications they are closing due to the competition of online media.

    As you know, the magazine publishing industry has been through turmoil in the face of the rapid ascendance of digital media, changing consumer content preferences, magazine wholesaler struggles and consolidation in the supply chain. We have tried mightily to persevere against these forces, but have been unable to overcome these challenges.

    While magazines are becoming obsolete I am more concerned about the vacuum of quality content that will be left behind when they close tomorrow. We may only be cognizant of Harris Publication’s gun related magazines but they also produce and publish a wide variety of magazines on almost any activity and subject matter.
