PGI is far and away my favorite. After I quit subscribing to all the PB magazines I could afford, PGI was the one I stayed with. Good pictures, interesting articles and good reviews, IMO. After finding numerous spelling errors in PB2X (my second favorite because of the pictures...) I decided to stay with PGI.

It's pretty expensive...
$49.95 for 1 year (10 issues)
$94.95 for 2 years (20 issues)

The magazines cost $7.95 in the store. So your saving 30% on cover price and it comes with two magazines. One dedicated to scenario, the other all around paintball.

Only other magazine I'd subscribe to is Paintball2Xtremes. Their photography is outstanding and they have an annual "Phat Photo Pheature" which showes off that incredible photography. (It has inspired me to take paintball photography...)

PB2X is much cheaper.
$4.95 Cover price (each issue)
$14.95 for 6 months (6 issues)
$29.95 for 12 months (12 issues)
$44.95 for 2 years (24 issues)

PB2X is what I would personally subscribe to to save money and get more then twice the issues that Facefull would offer you for a lower price.
