The Best Gun Magazine—On Television!

American Rifleman is the on-screen version of the National Rifle Association's American Rifleman magazine, "the world's oldest and largest firearm authority." American Rifleman is the pre-eminent source for accurate, compelling, authoritative information on all aspects of firearms, the shooting sports and all Americans' exercise of the second amendment.

On American Rifleman, you'll finally be able to put faces with the familiar names appearing in the magazine each month. Editor-in-Chief Mark A. Keefe, IV, is the show's host and is backed by Senior Executive Editor Brian C. Sheetz, Managing Editor Joe Kurtenbach and Associate Editor Kelly Young.

Rifleman Feature

Each episode of American Rifleman is built around one feature segment, in which American Rifleman staffers span the country to cover the firearm industry like no one else—whether going behind the scenes to see how guns and gear are made, on the firing lines of the nation's top shooting competitions, or using the latest in tactical, defensive or sporting techniques as practiced by America's elite trainers and competitors. Add in American Rifleman's signature historic coverage of classic guns, people and events, and you have the most complete firearm show on television—you'll get it all only on American Rifleman.

Rifleman Review

Just as generations of NRA members have come to rely on the magazine's "Dope Bag: Data & Comment" section for the objective, unvarnished truth and detailed descriptions of new firearms, so, too, do the show's Rifleman Reviews cover new rifles, shotguns, handguns and other shooting equipment. Evaluations are made using the same technical criteria used in the "Dope Bag," including how the guns operate, their features and their context. Even a specification table is included.

I Have This Old Gun ...

In the show's closing segment, Senior Curator Philip Schreier uncovers some of the more interesting treasures—from the common to the extremely rare—ensconced within NRA's National Firearms Museum and private collections. There, Schreier and a team of experts describe the background and history for each model and provide an approximate value for individual guns brought before the panel. I Have This Old Gun … will leave you planning your own visit to the National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia, and its impressive collection of arms.
