Normally, we run one gun on our cover. This allows us to highlight a significant firearm each month and present it in a dramatic fashion. Occasionally, we have put two guns on the cover, but always two firearms from the same manufacturer. On the cover of our November 2014 issue, however, we ran three pistols from three different manufacturers: The SIG Sauer P320, the Kahr CT40 and the Glock G42. They're all semi-automatic handguns, but that's about all they have in common.
The decision is, frankly, something of an experiment. We're curious to see if our readers (and potential readers) like this approach, or if they prefer a magazine with a single firearm on the cover, even if all three guns are still covered inside. What do you think?
