PbNation Magazine? Yes please!

In August of 2003 there was a short lived print magazine called Paintball Nation. It was affectionately called PbN Magazine. It was started by one of the founding members of PbNation. He only released 5 issues. They were in August, September, October and December. There was a sixth issue that never went to print. I was recently looking through some old hard drives and found the PDF files of all 6 issues. Pretty interesting stuff. The "classic" guns that were cutting edge are featured and reviewed. I converted the PDF's to jpeg's and uploaded them. It's nice to see where we were and how far we've come.










You can see all of the pictures here.

Enjoy!
Dan

I agree. It seems everybody and their brother has a crappy e-magazine. I can't think of a single one that is worth looking at. Plus what do you put on the shelf in the bathroom? I have print copies of the first 5 issues. The sixth was never printed.

And those were measured not guesstimated like they are today.

Same here! What am I supposed to read sitting in the bathroom, in a car driving through an area with no 3G service, or on a plane? E-magazines suck compared to print... I've never taken a shine to them.

I'd rather just read forums if print media isn't an option...

I completely agree. I used to include a magazine with the paintball gear that I checked when flying. I put it around the gun so that the guy checking it can see it wasn't a firearm. I don't think putting my iPad with it would do the same thing. Plus the pictures just looked so much better in print than on the computer.

Yes, I'm resurrecting a 7 year old thread. The pics are gone, the link is broken, and the page wasn't archived on the Wayback Machine.

Does anybody have these downloaded? I'd love to flip through them, and add them to a place that's a little bit more permanent, like Imgur or something.

Frustrating combing though old things just to find broken links. Someone's got to pay to keep those files up though.
