BLACK POWDER

Have you ever dreamed of returning to the thrilling days of the mountain men? Or, of sharing in the adventures of such wilderness heroes as Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, or Jim Bridger? Many people are attempting to experience a part of those days through black powder or muzzleloader shooting. The rifles that these modern mountain men use are replicas of the weapons used by the original frontiersmen. Not only are black powder weapons fun to shoot, but the muzzle-loading rifle is an effective hunting firearm.

We shoot at a variety of targets including steel and novelty to test your skill. We also include knife and tomahawk throwing competitions, not to mention starting a fire with flint and steel.
You needn’t be concerned if you don’t currently have a muzzle loading rifle, a knife or tomahawk and would like to try it out, come to a match, we will make sure you can participate.

BLACK POWDER NEWS & UPDATES

Next match Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 10:00 am on the Black Powder Range -or- in case of rain, the Rifle Range. Good food, good fun. Come join us, we have extra rifles and lots of ammo.
