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 August Newsletter

Burbank Muzzleloaders Newsletter August 2019


On August 11th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held its regular silhouette match at the usual yardages. The weather wasn’t spectacular but just a typical midsummer Southern California day, which readily facilitated some good clanking! Lee Bowman came in first with 12 hits, John Clevenger second with 11, and Sam Baseman and Eric Blakely tied for third with 9 each.

In more intriguing news, next month’s match, to be held on September 8th, is the Springfield Trapdoor match, hosted by Tom Trevor. Come with about fifty-five to sixty rounds; the full-length rifle match is fifteen rounds benched at 200 yards and fifteen rounds standing at 100 yards, culminating with a bonus match of five shots standing at the 400-yard gong. Wait! Let’s not forget that the 400-yard gong finally succumbed to its stresses shortly after last year’s match, so be ready to approach this year’s match malleably, inclined for a different long-range shot. May the 400-yard gong be erected again! Hurrah! Additionally, bring out your Trapdoor carbines for the Springfield carbine match of fifteen shots standing at 100 yards. All in all, this all makes for a rather demanding match!

By the way, let’s not forget that September has five Sundays, and that means another trail-walk match. On September 29th, Burbank Muzzleloaders will be holding its third walkthrough of the year. Recall that this year’s trail-walk match scores add up cumulatively to a final score upon the fourth match, held at the end of the year. The highest score wins a prize of four Morgan dollars and one Peace dollar, generously donated by Tom Trevor. The walkthrough tally hasn’t been uneventful but can still be anybody’s win, so don’t miss this!

Lastly, can you believe that the fall of 2019 is briskly approaching? This means patched roundball season, so don’t be neglecting your muzzleloading rifles for too much longer now, ye hear?

            Well, that’s all, for now, folks and until next time, don’t be a stranger at Burbank Muzzleloaders, the place to shoot!
