At the top of our lineup this week is the news that just because the Tokyo 2020 Olympics are over, doesn't mean that Olympic teammates Amber English and Phillip Jungman are ready to stop! The pair took top honors at the 2021 National Shotgun Skeet Championship finals at Hillsdale College’s John Anthony Halter Shooting Shooting Sports Education Center on Sunday, September 12.

Rimfire pistols took a big step in a fresh direction in 2019 when Taurus released the TX22. It was followed this year with the launch of the top-notch Competition model. In case you're not familiar with these rimfire semi-automatics, here are a few reasons why the TX22s should be on your radar.

One of the highlights of the NRA Women’s Leadership Forum Luncheon & Auction is the presentation of the annual Lifetime Achievement Award. And although the 2021 recipient was honored in the same manner as many events worldwide since 2020—virtually, through Livestream—the heartfelt sentiments given by Mary Cabela during her acceptance were received as if we had gathered as planned for the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston. Her remarks were replete with the love, selflessness and compassion for which she is known.

The United States is unique in the fact that we are guaranteed the rights that are given to us by our Creator. Every man and woman, regardless of race, creed or religion, is protected from the government infringing upon these rights.You do not have to be a historian to learn what our founders thought of gun control. You also do not need to be a student of war to know what our enemies thought of gun control. They’ve already told us; it’s time to listen

With a couple of hunts already under her belt this season, Melissa Bachman can assure you there has been one common theme throughout: bugs.This is pretty common in most early-season hunts before temperatures have had a chance to drop below freezing. Not only can bugs be extremely annoying, they can break a hunt. Columnist Melissa Bachman has the relief you seek.

If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend and live near the Colorado Springs, Colorado area, don't miss out on Shoot Like a Girl's Home of the Brave Tour!

New and experienced shooters are invited to attend; check out the Home of the Brave schedule here!

There’s always that one thing. The one thing you forget at the store, the one sale you missed out on, the lunch date you forgot to put on the calendar. For NRA Women contributor Serena Juchnowski, that one thing was the Bergara B-14R. Check out her review of this tack-driving rimfire rifle over at NRA Family!
