Shooting Sports USA, the National Rifle Association's monthly journal for target shooting enthusiasts, is celebrating more than 100 years of reporting on competition shooting. The number one resource for target shooters, the magazine features shooting news, expert forums, product reviews, and an annual calendar of 15,000 matches.
Originally an insert for Arms and the Man, the publication that would become NRA's American Rifleman in 1923, the rising popularity of competitive shooting led to the creation of a separate magazine in 1947 named NRA Tournament News. In 1976 the magazine was renamed American Marksman and began publishing more articles oriented toward the competitive shooter. The journal again changed its name in 1988 to Shooting Sports USA, and has continued to be the top competition shooting magazine in the United States.
"Anyone who has an interest in competitive shooting, from beginners to professionals, can find something to like in the pages of Shooting Sports USA," said Managing Editor Chip Lohman. "From covering the sport's history to tips on improving accuracy, our magazine is dedicated to helping shooters across the United States enjoy their sport."
