This site is dedicated to all the members of the Burbank Muzzle Loaders club. There are members from when the club was located in the Saugus/Newhall area, to new members that have only known the Piru area. No matter how long or how short you have been a member, this is a site for you. Hopefully, it will bring in some new people who would like to know more about muzzle loading, and did not know where to ask questions or find a place to shoot close to them. This is a club full of wonderful and helpful men, and women!!

Burbank Muzzleloaders Newsletter September 2017


On Sunday the 10th, ten shooters came out to the range to compete in one of our best matches of the year. That would be the annual “trapdoor” Springfield match sponsored by Tom Trevor. Rifles were shot at two hundred yards from the bench, and carbines were fired at one hundred yard targets. After all that, we shot at the 400 yard gong. The results were as follows:

   Rifle first place, Tom Trevor 75 out of a possible 75. Good shooting Tom!! Second, Jannu Lorentson 74, third, Lee Bowman 73.

   Carbine first place, Sam Baseman, 66 out of 75, second, Lee Bowman 65, third, Jannu Lorentson, 58.

   The gong shoot was won by John Clevenger

   Prizes were powder, primers, patches, and jars of a tasty concoction known hereafter as “Argentinian Ketchup”.  The name is J&M's Chimichurri, actually. Thanks to Tom for putting on a great shoot as always.

   Our next match will be silhouettes on the 8th of October. Come on out and bring a friend, we need to get more people attending, our existence depends on it!

   The club would like to welcome Bob Moore as our newest member.

   That’s it for this month, so until next time, See You At The Range!!
