American Hunter: 48 Years of Pure-Hunting Bliss

In 1973, the NRA introduced a monthly magazine focused solely on hunting. At a time when existing publications tailored to a wide array of sporting endeavors, such a singular-focused publication was a gamble. But within a decade, American Hunter boasted a million subscribers.

NRA Publications Names Mark Keefe Editorial Director

The National Rifle Association’s Publications Division is pleased to announce Mark. A. Keefe, IV, has been appointed Editorial Director, succeeding John Zent, who held the post from 2004 until April of this year, retiring after nearly four decades as an NRA staff editor. Brian Sheetz will replace Mark Keefe as editor in chief of American Rifleman.

Hunter Safety Thanks to Our NRA

In 1949, New York asked the National Rifle Association for help to improve hunter safety afield. The four-hour course that followed was a “pioneer effort” that has saved lives ever since. Today, no one can imagine American hunting without hunter education as a prudent rite of passage.

‘How My Guns Worked in Africa’

Stewart Edward White’s 1911 report to NRA members was one of the first from Africa’s hunting fields ever published in an American periodical, and is proof our association will always remain at the forefront of trends in firearm use.

Behind the Bullet: .223 Remington

Undoubtedly one of our nation’s favorite cartridges, the .223 Remington is capable of hair-splitting accuracy in a properly built rifle, has enough velocity for a respectable trajectory, and with the heavier bullets with a higher BC, can resist wind deflection rather well.

New for 2021: Short Action Benelli Lupo

NRA Publications Editorial Director John Zent tests out the Benelli Lupo on a range day at West Virginia's Prospect Hall Hunting Club.
