Muzzle Loaders Club

The Muzzleloading Club shoots the first Sunday of the month rain or shine (Exceptions due to holidays). We have three five-shot rifle matches at either twenty-five or fifty yards which are shot from the bench, off-hand, or cross sticks. We also shoot one twenty-five yard, ten-shot pistol match using a one-hand hold.

We have a trail walk type shoot about three times a year which consists of shooting at steel plates of various sizes and shapes at thirty-five to fifty yards, all off-hand.

If you would like to shoot or learn how to shoot your muzzleloaders bring out your rifle to our club shoot.  Practice starts anytime after 9:00 am and we start shooting our formal matches at 1:00 pm.
