American Rifleman editors announce their favorite guns and gear. By NRA Staff
1/4/2012 Of the numerous, and varied, duties of American Rifleman's editors, few are as difficult as reviewing the past year's issues and selecting the firearms, ammunition product and accessory most deserving of a much-coveted American Rifleman Golden Bullseye Award.
“This is the 10th anniversary of our Golden Bullseye Award,” said Joe H. Graham, Executive Director of NRA Publications. “It was unchartered waters for us. Now this much-coveted award is a symbol of excellence, innovation and quality in firearms, accessories and related equipment. We congratulate the winners.”
Whereas the Golden Bullseye Award acknowledges the finest products available in the shooting sports, the Golden Bullseye Pioneer Award specifically honors outstanding personal achievement
“The Pioneer Award spotlights the exemplary achievement and cumulative body of work of an individual, members of a team or partnership, or family who were responsible for the development and introduction of shooting equipment that has made a profound, positive and enduring impact on the way Americans shoot and hunt,” said Graham.
