    I have a bunch of old ASG magazines I have had for years. Since they are now out business would anybody know if I had them scanned into PDF files would that violate any publishing laws?

    I have been cleaning a lot of bubblegum out of my garage and found these. I am thinking somebody would find the information useful.

    If anybody out there wants to tackle this project I will send them these magazines as long as you agree to scan them into PDF files and post them free for NWFA members. Maybe create a members only section so guests just cannot read without becoming members. Sounds like a good idea to me, but then I am tripping on a good cup of coffee right now.

    What do you all think?

    A bit of history but it was sold of a while ago to another company and they ran it down and closed it down. I think they did it to get it off the market. The guy who ran it I beleive had to sigh a no compete clause. Hence no new mag. But he did start a web based mag same format same good stuff. The address is http://www.modernsurvival.net/ And I think he would not be happy with you doing that.
    On another note I have quite a few of the old ones. And 7 years of the new ones witch they are on disk. I would not mind finding out if you have some I dont have and maybe we can trade for a while or something? Let me know.

    I am now in the 21st Century.... I have discovered photo bucket.

    I will post pics of the magazines and we can work something out. I don't want to piece these out I would rather just donate/trade them all at once.

    I'd enjoy seeing some of these. I enjoyed reading them when I was a kid and my dad collected them, but haven't seen very much ASG from the 90s and thereafter.

    I dug them out this morning and I didn't realize how many I kept. I even have the 20th year anniversary edition. Any way, I am going to contact the editor of modern survival to see if I or anybody else can put them into a PDF and post them online. If not I will sell them out right. I think the information contained within those pages should be passed on.

    I will (soon) post some pics of the various covers of the magazines.

    I know this is an old thread, but I am in the process of scanning in my collection from back in the day and was wondering if you'd scanned in any copies that I might be missing from my collection.

    Volume 12
    Numbers 8,9
    Volume 13
    Numbers 1,
    Volume 14
    Numbers 2,4,5,7,8,12
    Volume 15
    Numbers 1,2,4,5,7,9,10,
    Volume 16
    Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,10,11,12
    Volume 17
    Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
    Volume 18
    Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
    Volume 19
    Numbers 1,2,4,6,7 ( address labels start here ),8,9,10,11,12
    Volume 20
    Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12

    Volume 22
    Numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7,8, 9

    Then the transition to “Self reliance Journal”
    Volume 22
    Numbers 10,11,12
    Volume 23
    Numbers

    I have a pile of these magazines also. I will try and see what ones I have.

    A PDF of all would be awesome.

    I cherish my old copies of the old American Survival Guide. It was a pretty good mag, although you often saw an ad for the item reviewed right to the review :bluelaugh:

    As a kid I also used love reading Gung-Ho, Eagle and Soldier of Fortune, however, looking back alot of the articles were pretty cheesy

    Anyone else have a chance to check your back issues? I have scanned all of the issues I had stashed in the basement and would like to borrow other issues to scan and fill in the gaps
