I take both magazines. Hve been since the mid '90s.
during the time I have subscrebed, I think the magazine has been printed by the Mohrs, and it sounds like they are involved with the club and they still put a lot of club information in it.
I don't know anything about an estrangememt between them and the club, although they do say from time to time that we are not the MM collectors club. I think this is because they get mail and calls from folks that think they and the club are one and the same.
Then again I live 1200 miles away. . .
