The Australian Shooters Journal, or simply ASJ, is a political-oriented supplement to the monthly Australian Shooter magazine. Published periodically and released to all SSAA members, it focuses exclusively on the legislative, licensing and lobbying issues that concern Australia’s firearm owners.

The ASJ brings a range of political, economic, social and environmental issues to the fore and enables sporting shooters and recreational hunters to make informed decisions on the issues that concern them.
