the loading process. For Part 2, we learn about how
to turn prepared brass into loaded rounds. Topics
covered include priming and powder charging, along
with a few product recommendations. Read the guide
on page 30.
Before automobiles were the norm, railroads
provided the bulk of long-distance mass travel.
Often, rail lines would offer reduced fares and provide
other amenities to competitive shooters that were
heading to the National Matches. The International
Railwaymen's Match, held at the National Matches
until 1940, recognized the importance of the railroads
to Camp Perry. Author and National Matches historian
Hap Rocketto looks back at this prestigious rifle event
from the " Golden Age " of smallbore competition in
the United States. Read his article on page 34.
Last but not least, in April, my boss, the longtime
NRA Publications Editorial Director John Zent,
retired after an award-winning career spanning
40 years. Much more than a boss, Zent not only
walks the walk, he does so with the professionalism
all good leaders display when they lead by example.
His leadership not only set the high standard of
journalistic excellence for Shooting Sports USA,
but for all the publications in our network-
American Rifleman, American Hunter,
Shooting Illustrated, America's First Freedom,
NRA Family and NRA Women. Our staff salutes
John Zent and congratulates him on his
well-deserved retirement.

Optics-ready, the Taurus TX22 Competition .22
LR pistol is the subject of May's cover feature and
with good reason-simply add a red dot and this
gun is ready for Steel Challenge. Sporting the same
polymer frame as the original Taurus TX22 rimfire
pistol, the new Competition model adds a bull barrel
and mounting compatibility for most popular red-dot
sights. The mounting plate for optics is attached to
the barrel to avoid any slide ride issues. A sub-$500
price is the icing on the cake. Read Field Editor Chris
Christian's review of the Taurus TX22 Competition in
this month's Product Focus on page 12.
With the CZ Tactical Sport 2 9 mm pistol, an update
of the original CZ Tactical Sport, engineers give
action shooters an ergonomics-forward firearm that
allows for refined operation-even while on the move.
