Shooter's Rag is currently being published at very irregular and
widely-spaced intervals by Michael Havelin.
Shooter's Rag began in 1992 as a labor of love. It was the high point of a life in photography. Unfortunately, the dream was greater than the business success, and SR's paper publication went into remission after the publisher wised up to the economic realities of launching a national magazine. Nonetheless, SR serves a useful purpose in the photographic world, and the World Wide Web provides the means to continue publication to a much larger audience on a limited budget. So here we are. Check back at intervals.
Back issues of SR issues 1-11 are available, including PDF files from the PDF
Access Page .
