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.
facefull is also alot thicker and contains alot more content than most mags. honestly, i never got a subscription, i just went up to 7-11 and bought a copy every once in awhile.

Isn't it printed on better quality paper as well? You know, thicker, with matte instead of gloss?

It's still way too expensive for me, though I look through them at the book stores!

i just broke the tie between APG and PB2X... i read both, but pb2x has too much tourney coverage for my taste and APG has better (and more) articles (non-event related) IMHO.

That is what I love about it. I think the tournament coverage is awesome and I personally thing the photography is better.
