myArmoury.com is a personal project that has ended up being quite costly to maintain. We've grown to such a size that the we've had to find new methods of providing services to both fund our own publishing efforts as well as help offset the costs associated with keeping the site running.

We've recently made available several new membership plans and other services that provide enhanced functionality and new features to our members. You can help us meet our goals by purchasing an enhanced membership to the site.

All proceeds from the sales of memberships and services will serve to offset the bills for site hosting, maintenance, bandwidth charges, contest prizes, publishing usage rights, and the continued acquisition of hands-on review samples.


Please visit our Membership Plans and Services section for details.

Please visit our Contributor Center to read about other ways for you to add to myArmoury.com.


Thank you for your consideration.

I just signed up for the Upgraded Membership, but I have no problem donating extra if it's needed. Just send me a PM or email Big Grin .

A thing to consider for those of you who might hesitate about upgrading your membership: think of how much this site has helped you, and will help you in the future. The reviews have hopefully steered you towards better purchases, thus saving you money. The articles and reference material are free, but would cost much more than $25 (or even $45) if you were to buy books, magazines, etc, to get equivalent material. The discussion forum has quickly established itself as a place for mature discussions on arms and armour. All in all, myArmoury is a great resource!

The contributors of articles and reviews work for free, reviewing weapons usually bought for hard-earned cash and using books from carefully collected personal libraries. The whole site is a labour of love, and it will remain that if enough people chip in. So what are you waiting for? Otherwise, we'll have to finance the site by publishing calendars of the myArmoury team in the buff, and you don't want that to happen! Wink

"Otherwise, we'll have to finance the site by publishing calendars of the myArmoury team in the buff, and you don't want that to happen! "

Personally I think this is the best reason of all to subscribe!

Let me give our participants another one. This is simply the best website of its kind on the web, as such it needs to be preserved and helped along with its continued growth. We often get into discussions on how important it is to support the makers involved in our community. Supporting a valuable knowledge resource like myArmoury.com is just as important.

There are some who genuinely can't afford it, and to them I still say "Welcome!" These people are, however, few and far between. The rest of us should consider how much we spent the last time we went to a movie, or went out to eat. How much gas did you use during that last road trip with your buddies? How much did you spend on Beer last month? It's all a matter of perspective and priority.

Knowledge is much higher on the priority list than Beer, cigarettes, or fancy food. At least it should be.

As you may or may not have noticed. Over the past several weeks, Nathan has a given me the opportunity to experiment with the premier account. It has a lot to offer. My only complaint is that I tend to upload many photos & 20MB may not be enough for me. Laughing Out Loud I encourage everyone to consider upgrading your accounts, whether it be to 'upgraded' or 'premier'. I would like everyone to consider the valid points made by Björn & Patrick above, and consider contributing to this great site, either it by donations, upgrading your account, contributing by submitting a review, etc.

Actually, I'd love to see a Sword Calender. However, the logistics and expense might make it tough for myArmoury to do it.

Probably not -too- difficult. I think CafePress does up a yearly calendar... if you have a bunch of high-quality photos, you've got it made. Wink
