Intermedia Outdoors, the publishers of Shotgun News and Guns & Ammo, is launching a brand new survival magazine titled “Be Ready!”

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll recall I’ve been posting images from my iPhone of me working tirelessly on articles in coffee shops around town.  The articles I’ve been writing are for this exciting new publication.  The editor of  Be Ready! is none other than my good friend and long time gun writer David Fortier.  We have a great staff of writers for the new magazine and I think you’ll definitely enjoy reading it.

It will be on newsstands in August which is just around the corner.  Stay tuned, I’ll keep you guys posted as the time draws closer for the launch.  I’m pretty excited as this is my first time being published in print vs. online.  Yeah, I’m geeking.


MAC is an avid shooter, former MCSF Marine, NRA member, Oath Keeper and is commissioned as a Colonel by the Governor of Kentucky. Known for his videos on the Military Arms Channel, he also writes for The Bang Switch, for Shotgun News (Be Ready!) and freelances for Guns & Ammo. MAC has been a life long shooter who has an interest in all things that go "bang" but gravitates towards military type firearms.

    Nice! I’ll try to pick one up.

    • MAC

      I trust you’ll enjoy it and perhaps even find some useful info within the covers. They have a great group of guys writing for the new magazine so I’m looking forward to picking up my copy as well.

    Be advised, we are about to be bombarded with tons of publishers trying to cash in on all those with “prepper” mentality. I think it’s a good thing. I read RECOIL magazine and they also have anounced a spin off covering the same thing as the BE READY magazine. I love the job they are doing at RECOIL and look forward to their version on the subject.

    Will it be available in Canada?

    • Mike

      Canada? LOL!

    I think it’s a great idea for a magazine and I truly hope it’s successful. Being one of those who gave up on printed magazines and newspapers long ago, I also hope that it will be available online as well.

    This is right up my alley, I will pick up the first copy for sure.

  • Jeff

    Hope it’s available on the news stands. I don’t want the DHS knowing I have a subsription.

    • MAC

      It will be available on newsstands, the DHS won’t know unless you pay with a credit card or debit card.

      • Linda

        How much is it going to cost?

    • Rossifumifan1

      Amen to that Jeff! There’s nothing better than turning real pages. No batteries to run out when the article starts heating up!

      I can assure you, that as I pulled this magazine from the stand at a store right next to the floods of Boulder Colorado (which inevitably also had copies downstream!) the Department of Homeland Security and many others would have preferred that you and all people of Boulder Colorado had read the magazine and performed many of the emergency preparations suggestion within it!

      Please Worry and plan for your families safety from immediate threats not imagined ones.

    Hey Mac when will this magazine be available and where can we get a subscription? Sry if you already said

  • Gee William

    Is this a new monthly or a annual/quarterly special? I’m hoping it’s a monthly. Really lookin forward to this!

    • MAC

      Right now it’s an annual, however they have plans to increase the number of yearly publications as the magazine grows. If they sell them out in August I would imagine they’ll bring a new one to print a few months later.

  • James Fenwick

    Have they said when it is going to come out.

    • Gee William

      Sometime in August.
