Shooting Sports USA, the National Rifle Association’s monthly journal for target shooting enthusiasts, has been reporting on competitive shooting for over 100 years. 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.

To this day, from covering the history of the shooting sports to tips on handloading and improving accuracy, Shooting Sports USA is dedicated to helping shooters across the U.S. and the world enjoy their sport. One in every two NRA-classified shooters subscribes to the monthly online SSUSA magazine, while others either bookmark the website or read the articles as reprints in other venues. Please share the website with a friend to help grow our collective “voice.” You can subscribe to the free weekly insider newsletter and the monthly magazine at this link: www.ssusa.org/sign-up-for-updates.

Reporters Welcome

In our efforts to recruit more reporters, we frequently hear the comment: “But I’m not a writer.” What people overlook is that they are on the scene, hearing and seeing the action first-hand. Editing and completing the article is our job, so if you’d like to try your hand at sharing draft reports and photographs from national-level matches or interviews with key people in the shooting sports, please email us at [email protected].
