Shooting Sports USA - July 2017 - Cover2

COMPETITORS' CORNER
Summer is here, and that means it's NRA National Championship season. Competitors
will be traveling far and wide to compete over the next few months. Be sure to read
the latest pistol, smallbore and high power rifle updates on SSUSA.org. In addition, we
published this interesting article on the website last month that is worth a read: Top 50
Women in Competitive Shooting.
Two gun reviews in Product Focus this month-Ruger's new MK IV .22 pistol by Chris
Christian, and the Winchester SX3 Composite Sporting Shotgun, by Larry Case. You can
read both reviews beginning on page 14. NOTE: Ruger issued a recall for the MK IV last
month. The gun may unintentionally discharge if the safety is not used in the correct way.
This month's feature story is the 2017 Bianchi Cup. Doug Koenig once again graces the
cover, well-deserved-he has won the tournament a staggering 18 times now. There was
another impressive feat at Bianchi this year, SFC Adam Sokolowski of the AMU made
history of his own-shooting the first perfect score with iron sights ever at the Cup. You
can check out coverage of this year's match starting on page 22.
2017 NCAA smallbore and air rifle champions Morgan Phillips and Milica Babic are
two standout freshmen on the WVU rifle team, who won a fifth straight NCAA rifle
championship earlier this year. Read our interview with these two talented collegiate
student-athletes starting on page 28.
The ELEY Rimfire Challenge is a new game similar to precision long range rifle, but shot
with a .22 semi-auto or bolt gun, instead of the higher powers found in PRS. Shooting
is conducted from prone, weak shoulder, standing, sitting, kneeling, and barricade
positions-and some of the stages even involve movement from position to position. Read
our coverage of this exciting new disicpline on page 34.
Smallbore rifle champion Reya Kempley asks: "What happens when you're one of only a
few, or perhaps the only person in your area dedicated to a particular discipline?" Read her
article "You Don't Have to Go It Alone" on page 38.
Some housekeeping-the 2017 NRA State Champions article published in April's issue
was missing the Black Powder Target Rifle Michigan champions. See them listed below.
Partner's Corner will return next month.
