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 2018

            On September 9th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held its annual Springfield Trapdoor Match hosted by Tom Trevor. The weather was more moderate that day (finally!) as seven shooters did their best at 15 shots at 200 yards on the bench with the rifle and 15 shots off-hand with the carbine. At 200 yards, John Clevenger came in first with 75. Not too far behind was Tom Trevor, who came in a close second at 74. Eric Blakely came in third with 72. In order not to forget, a special thanks to Willie for providing a pound of powder to the shooter who came in last. Sam, you still managed to win!

            The carbine match highlighted other shooters with Lee Bowman coming in first with 66-1X. Sam Baseman came in second with 66 and John Clevenger third with 61. Boy, do those carbines bounce around a bit as you shoot ‘em!

            Lastly, the match culminated in a five-shot off-hand match shooting at the 400-yard gong. Skip managed to come in first with two shots with the advantage of hitting with shots 1 and 4. Jannu came in a close second also with two shots but at 1 and 5. Tom came in third with 1. For the rest of us, our bullets just danced around the gong and further loosened the dirt.  It was a great match, Tom! We all enjoyed the useful prizes, staples to any black powder shooter’s possibles box.

            Don’t y’all forget that we have another trail-walk match at the end of this month on September 30th.  Come on out and usher in the fall by enjoying the hopefully more temperate weather. Where else would you rather be but out in nature shooting your rifle and chatting it up with your buddies?

            Additionally, next month on October 14th, Burbank Muzzleloaders will have its silhouette match at 50, 70, 80, and 100 yards. There’s always a chance for a better score; no tellin’ who will “ring” supreme at the next one!

            Well, that’s all folks. Burbank Muzzleloaders- the place to shoot!
