This month’s cover features Greg Jordan, the 2019 NRA World Shooting Champion. Jordan is the first-ever two-time winner of the match, after his previous win in 2017. The World Shooting Championship, which has all guns and ammunition provided to competitors, has become a fan favorite with 12 stages covering the entire shooting-sports spectrum. The fat cash purse, along with separate prize tables for professional and amateur shooters, further places it on the “must-do” list for competitive shooters around the globe. Read all about this year’s match here.

November’s Product Focus has Field Editor Chris Christian’s review of the new Savage A22 FV-SR. This new rimfire rifle should have a lot of appeal for Steel Challenge shooters, among many others who favor lightweight stocks for speed. What’s even better is the fact this rifle not only comes with a black synthetic stock, it’s also available in a version sporting NRA’s official camouflage—Mossy Oak Overwatch. See Christian’s review of the A22 FV-SR here.
