remarkable era and career in
NRA Publications has drawn to
a close. One of the finest men
to ever have an NRA employee number
has moved on to a well-earned retirement. I'm referring to my dear friend
and longtime boss, John R. Zent. Until
April, he had served as editorial director of NRA Publications since 2004.
You've been able to find his byline
in NRA magazines since 1982. At that
point in time, magazines were still
printed using hot type, and he has
seen us well and truly into the digital
age. He has led incredible growth
within NRA Publications, including
American Rifleman, American Hunter,
America's 1st Freedom and Shooting
Illustrated, our Official Journals,
but also Shooting Sports USA (which
probably gave him flashbacks to his
days with a ruler measuring picas
for American Marksman, more on
that later), " American Rifleman
Television, " the websites for all of our
magazines, as well as NRAfamily.org
and our latest website launched just
last year, NRAwomen.com.
John started out as an assistant
editor after doing some freelance
writing and several other jobs, which
apparently involved having milk
trucks catch fire, before making his
way from Gettysburg College to NRA
Publications. There he began a career
as an NRA staff editor. For his early
tenure, he didn't even rank his own
office-merely a desk and an IBM
typewriter in the hallway-and the
then-editor of American Rifleman
didn't actually speak to John for the
first couple of months, but he wasn't
dissuaded. In addition to working on
American Rifleman, he was tasked
with the monthly American Marksman,
which was dedicated solely to competitive shooting, making sure match
reports and a list of upcoming shooting
events were as perfect as they could
be made. John became an associate editor, traveling to international
matches and other shooting events all
over the country. Little did he know
that his NRA career would eventually
take him across the world, from the
Pan-American Games to the hunting
fields of Alaska and Africa, with stops
JUNE/JULY 2021

at gun factories and boardrooms along
the way. And there were a lot of NRA
Annual Meetings over the course of his
nearly 39-year career. He went to work
every day always thinking of those for
whom he worked: NRA members.
John joined American Hunter in
1987, starting out at the bottom but
eventually working his way up to
editor in chief. A man truly knowledgeable about guns, John's first love
has been hunting. During his time at
American Hunter, he personified what
a hunter should be-and he listened to
them and spoke out for them.
In the more than 30 years that I
worked with him, I never once heard
John raise his voice. He is a gentleman,
through and through, and he treated
everyone from a company CEO to an
NRA annual member with dignity and
respect. He defined professionalism and
leadership for the editorial staff.
He was the best writer on the floor.
And when John would take time from
his managerial duties to pen stories for
these pages, I knew those words would
be the best possible, because, as a
writer, John was and is a craftsman. He
took his work seriously, doing research
when he had to, and then blending
what he had learned into simply excellent prose. As much as I will miss him,
his voice is not lost to the members of
NRA-John has agreed to write several
important articles for us going forward.
John Zent has been many things
to NRA over the years: writer, editor,
manager, mentor and more, and he
has cast a tall shadow. He made those
under him better employees and better editors. I know, because I am one
of them.
Sincerely,

AMERICAN RIFLEMAN
