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 May 2017


   April 30th was a “fifth” Sunday trail walk. We had eleven shooters in attendance.first place was taken by John Clevenger with a score of 18 out of 25. Second place was Sam Baseman with 17. Third place was taken by Jannu Lorentson with 16. It was a good day for shooting weather wise, but the sun was brutal, as it usually is when we’re shooting towards the east in the morning.

   On May 14th, we held our annual Richard Kane/Will Johnson memorial musket match. Nine shooters came out with a variety of civil war era military firearms, and fired at 100, 50, and 25 yards. Lee Bowman ran away with first place with a score of 220 out of a possible 250. Good shooting Lee! Second place was taken by Tom Trevor with 191, followed by Sam Baseman with 182. It was another day of nice weather and good shooting.

   Next month, will be a silhouette match, on June 11th. Come on out for some bang and clatter!

   Things seem to be settling out as far as the details of our agreement with the new owners. Shooting fees and dues are going to increase. Daily range fees are going to increase to ten dollars on July first this year, and dues are going to increase to 150.00 a year for the 2018 year. Match fees will remain at ten dollars These increases will put us where we need to be as far as needed annual income is concerned. Even with all these increases, we are still shooting for less money than you can shoot ANYWHERE else. As I stated before, attendance is going to be a key factor in making this all work, so consider coming out as often as possible.

All would like to thank Joe Gonzales for following Josh all the way home in his coolant leaking Mini to be sure he made it [did not] Found AAA driver shoots black powder. . Seems they found buried deep in the engine compartment that the PLASTIC thermostat housing had cracked open. The housing also contains a few sensors needed for the onboard computer system.

And  they come with the new Plastic housing that costs more than the first car most of us had!

    That’s it for now, so until next time, SEE YOU AT THE RANGE!
