Just got my summer issue and I re-upped for another year a couple months ago. Nice if they send a refund but I won't hold my breath! Angry

The last issue was May 2016.

Subscriptions are done, as well.

It was announced to the Harris Publications workforce over the loudspeaker on a Thursday - giving them until Friday of that week to clean out their desks and lockers - leaving them out of work.

Maybe if all of the C&WAS publications didn't resemble one another as much as they did, they'd still be in publication.

I'd sure like to hear from Mike Beliveau about the whole thing, he post here fairly often?

I just got a letter pertaining to a lawsuit against Harris Publications filed by a guy named Rosen in the Supreme Court of the state of New York.

Anyone else?? Roll Eyes

I got one, but for what they would owe me for what's left of my subscription, if I could really figure it out, isn't worth the effort.

Near as I can figure, I still have 2 issues that will go down in flames...
Pathfinder said it " isn't worth the effort."

it is not the first time I had subscribed to a Magazine that floundered... It is however the last time....

I seldom don't buy any on the newsstand either, so I guess I'm a part (small part ) of demise of Print Magazines'

well,  they filed for bankruptcy . that means all anyone will get is some portion of moneys owed, if that.

http://www.omnimgt.com/cmsvol2/pub_47108/575478_filed%20petition.pdf

assest auctions are happening right now.
First dibs go to the lawyers
next to the auctioneers
then  the Landloard
then other debts and subscribers (see page 17 above)
item 64. on page 19 mentions ~ 100 vendors and ~ 50,000 subscribers, and
"Assigner has informed me that it believes that each such magazine subscriber is owed between $4.00 and $10.00 "

and it appears as tho they may be requiring subscribers to file a "proof of claim form" to be eligible for any (partial) refund if any funds are remaining...

good luck

This isn't bankruptcy--wrong court.  Looks like some New York sleight of hand to give it all to the lawyers.

Isn't that kind of the definition of bankruptcy? (LOL)

Good thing the subscribers aren't likely bleeding-heart liberals that think the world owes them....they would be filing a suit for pain and suffering.

I'm not in pain and I'm not suffering. I'm just highly annoyed. Don't think you can file suit for that (LOL).

As a long time advertiser, I am not happy.  I was asked to submit any new copy for my ad in the Summer issue and did so about two weeks before the deadline.  Within a few days after, I received my proof, which I okayed.  I expected to get my invoice within a short period of time as I usually did, but after waiting several weeks, I gave them a call only to find out that they had closed the doors.  The lady I talked to, although very nice and helpful, could not give me any info on my ad and no one was left in the building who could help me out.  So I just sat back and waited.  Within another couple of weeks I did in fact get my invoice and a tear sheet showing my ad had been printed in the Summer issue.  Center right, page 7.  I paid my invoice and never heard another word.  I waited for my copy of the magazine, but never received it.  Called again and talked to the same lady and she was kind enough to look for a complete Summer issue, but came back and said that none were available.  She suggested that I buy one at the news stand.  Oh well.

That explaines why I have not seen it. I actually thought it could have been some anti-gun thing with the stores.

Luckily, it sounds like someone else picked it up and is going to start up publishing soonish. I saw a Facebook post from Mr. Beliveau where he mentioned having a few orders for the new 'Guns of the Old West.'

Howdy all,

I just wanted to confirm that somebody has picked up Guns of the Old West.  The last issue I have is summer 2016.  I have not seen the Fall issue appear at any of the news stands I used to be able to pick it up although I have not made the trip out to the local bookstore to check there.  I know some folks mentioned getting a new issue this month so I just wanted to make sure it was the fall issue before I start driving all over town to look for it.  Also is there any new contact information?  If I can't find it locally, I will just have to break down and subscribe but am not sure about the old contact info.

Thanks for your time!

Ok I just saw the more recent thread which would seem to answer my questions.  Sorry about that.  Nothing to see here.

I just bought the "Fall 2016" issue, at the local Wally World book rack. It's from the new publisher. Can't see any difference in it. Maybe they just reorganized, under belly up rules., but any way, its back.
