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!!

October 2018

On September 30th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held a fifth-Sunday trail-walk match. A few notable soldiers were AWOL, but the battle went on! Only six fighters competed this time but not without substantial casualties for the enemy. Jannu came in first with 15 hits, Sam second (by tiebreaker) with 12, and S2 (a.k.a. Skip) third with 12. Although the author of this newsletter was absent, he had a trusty informant relay to him his observations of the day- “We all sucked!” said he on condition of anonymity. Our next skirmish on the hill is set for December 30th. Come join us, and usher in the New Year with some trophy kills; you’ll be glad ya done it!

On October 14th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held its regular silhouette match with chickens at 50 yards, pigs at 70, turkeys 80, and rams at 100 yards. Lee Bowman showed us what it was all about with his brilliant poise and practiced discipline. With artistic finesse, Lee scored 16 including the earning of a five-chicken pin. Way to go Lee, for he attributes said ability to practicing with snap caps in order to improve flinch control. Sam Baseman (not Crutchman this time) came in second with 12, and Jannu third with 11. It was a great day, and fall was definitely in the air!
Our next match, to be hosted by Jannu on November 11th, will be our annual turkey shoot. Come on out with your favorite muzzleloading round-ball rifle, and you may claim your Thanksgiving turkey early. Get your rifles sighted in at 100, 50, and 25 yards. Jannu, we are all giddy in anticipation of shooting at your “creative” targets, which would be the envy of any kindergartener’s arts and crafts endeavor!

Well, that’s all for now folks. Come on out and support your group in any way you can. We’d love to have you.

Burbank Muzzleloaders- the place to shoot!
