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!!

   It was a beautiful 78 or so degree day at the range, as ten shooters gathered to shoot the annual Springfield “trapdoor” match, sponsored by Tom Trevor. Targets were shot off the bench at 200 yds. with rifles, while carbines were fired offhand at 100 yds. The winners in the rifle match were, first place, Tom Trevor, with a score of 75 7x. second place John Clevenger, with a score of 75 5x. third place, Lee Bowman, with 73 3v, fourth place, Sam Baseman, with 73 3x, fifth place, John Moore with 70 3x, and sixth place, Skip Stokes, with 69. Winners in the carbine match were, first place Sam Baseman 65 1x, second place, Lee Bowman 62 2x, third place, Tom Trevor 58, fourth place Jannu Lorentsen 57, fifth place, Skip Stokes 52, and sixth place, Eric Blakely 47. The winner of the 400 yd. gong match was Skip Stokes. Prizes were powder, cleaning patches, solvent, primers and such. It was a great match, and everyone had a good time. Afterwards, Eric Blakely broke out his new S&W .460  HAND CANNON! And let us all fire it if we dared. That thing is LOUD!


   Next month’s match will be silhouettes, on October 9th, so come on out for some bang and clatter!


   There will also be a “fifth” Sunday trail walk on October 30th. Either muzzleloaders or cartridge guns may compete.


    That’s all for now, so until next time, See You At The Range!
