I don't think it's necessary to defend APG MaDuce. I may have seen my first naked chick in a Playboy, but I don't credit the mag with my .. well nevermind. But don't defend something that isn't worth defending. APG has horrific spelling errors. And grammar issues. I can't stand that stuff in publications. Drives me nuts.
1. I discussed APG's many flaws in my post.
2. Regular paintballers boycotting the publication won't really hurt the magazine much as it is geared towards 10 year old kids who see a milsimed Tippmann on the cover in the checkout isle and beg their moms to buy it. Every issue of APG explains pb terminology and features articles that are importaint and interesting for new players. Most other paintball magazines expect their readers to know the lingo and have a good grasp of paintball under their belts. Once those newbies get in the swing of things then they will probably move on to magazines like "Splat," "PB2X," "Facefull" etc.
3. The magazine, despite it's editing errors, reinforces values like safety and fair play, and that is worth defending.
I do appreciate the general attitude of the mag that describe, just not the execution.
Right, which is what I have been saying.
EDIT: Spelling and grammar.
