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 April Newsletter

Burbank Muzzleloaders Newsletter 

April, 2018 

Sunday the 8th of April was a beautiful day for shooting. It started out a bit windy in the morning, but by eleven or so, the wind had pretty much stopped and the temperature was about eighty degrees. 

We shot silhouettes in the morning even though there were only four of us. Sam Baseman took first, followed by john Clevenger, Tom Trevor, and Josh Smith. Sam is STILL feigning discomfort from a broken arm that he got eight weeks ago so he continues using a shooting stick. 

After lunch we were visited by a fellow named John who says he wants to come out and shoot with us. Hopefully he will. Also, we got a visit from Jim Drury, his son Ethan and grandson Connor. Nice to see you Jim. 

On April 29th we will be shooting a fifth Sunday trail walk, so load up about thirty rounds or so, and come out and compete. 

Also, on May 5th and 6th the new owners will be celebrating their one-year anniversary. They’ve told us that we can come out and shoot for both days. The new owners will more than likely be bringing visitors by to show us off, so dress nice! 

Next month’s match on May 13th will be the annual Richard Kane - Will Johnson memorial musket match, sponsored by Jannu Lorentson. It’s usually about twenty-five rounds or so with targets ranging from 25 to 100 yards. 

The weather is starting to warm up a bit, so be mindful of rattle snakes. We haven’t seen any out there for a while, but you don’t want to forget that they ARE there. 

That’s it for now, so until next time, see you at the range! And bring a friend.
