A Blast From The Past – International Combat Arms

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

I remember purchasing issue of Vol 1, Issue 4 of Guns & Ammo Action Series during my 9th Grade year from a local HyVee grocer. It was the premier issue of International Combat Arms (The Journal of Firepower) and included articles on knives, pistols, shotguns, sub machine guns and assault rifles as well as missiles, the Border Patrol and the 82nd Abn Div. Basically everything a kid could want in those pre-Internet days.

Recently, a friend in Canada sent me a pristine copy. I opened it and a wave of memories washed over me. But, what really struck me were the advertisements.

H&K definitely got in on the act with several full-page, color ads. Oh, to have a few of those offerings now.

Thanks Lav!
