Hello my friends. I ve scanned this rather interesting ad which I’m pretty sure haven’t seen it here. Excuse me if it is a repost! Its from the July 1978 issue.

I normally don’t read advertisements but I did that one.  Thanks for posting.

He looked like a tough old bird in that pic, like he’d just as soon telly you where to go as say hi.  But that is what is missing in today’s PC world.  I like the ad, got your attention. Thanks for posting.

I have been reliably informed by an early DW insider, and friend of Dan, that one of “Danny’s” favorite pastimes was popping woodchucks and squirrels in the woodpile with a Thompson SMG.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.
