The IAA Journal also prints articles by non-members! We have had a number of excellent articles submitted by non-members who would like to document their research, but for various reasons are not members of the IAA. For those who feel their command of English is not adaquate to write an article, send it to me or Chris and we will make sure it reads well in English, or find someone who can do that for you.
A non-member who has an article published will be sent, on request, a copy of the Journal where it appears-either an eJournal or a printed Journal.
Having said this, the fact is that Ray got it right! Membership makes sense for anyone who has an interest in ammunition. The scope of the articles in the Journal always impresses me. At $25/year for the eJournal and $35 for the print Journal (for US members. More for Canadian and overseas members due to postage costs.) it is a bargain.
Take a look at the Index of past Journals, accessable through the IAA Home page - link at the top of this page. IAA Members can purchase over 50 years of Journal articles for $50.
