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 March Newsletter


Burbank Muzzleloaders Newsletter March 2019

            On March 10th, Burbank Muzzleloaders held its annual cartridge trail-walk match hosted by Tom Trevor. Providence assuredly had a hand in the day’s affairs, for eight shooters had nothing less than an ideal setting for a walk along the trail. Additionally, shooters as a whole performed better than usual with Lee Bowman coming in first with 18 hits, Jannu Lorentson second with 17, and John Clevenger third with 16. Other riflemen where not too far behind either, making it all a gratifying dinger-dinging experience. In fact, due to so many hits, the dingers suffered some severe casualties, necessitating some repairs. A special thank you to our “dinger doctors” who took the initiative to restore the course. Lastly, Tom’s prizes of powder, primers, and patches, to name a few, were proper, satisfying any black powder shooter’s addiction. It was a great match, Tom, a singular day to be remembered among Burbank Muzzleloaders’ members.

            If you missed this exceptional day, you may be in luck to have another quite similar to it! Luckily, March has five Sundays, so Burbank Muzzleloaders will be hosting another trail-walk match on March 31st. This is an any-gun match, so consider surprising us with something you’ve kept hidden for a while and show us what it can do. THERE WILL BE FOUR MORE TRAIL WALKS THIS YEAR. AT THE DECEMBER SHOOT CONCLUSION THERE WILL BE AWARDED A SPECIAL PRIZE OF SOME VALUE TO THE SHOOTER WITH THE MOST HITS IN THE FOUR FIFTH SUNDAY SHOOTS. Moreover, next month, Burbank Muzzleloaders’ will host a silhouette match on April 14th.

            Of most noteworthy news, our 400-yard gong was the unfortunate compromise to the life-giving rains that have blessed Southern California. The ground finally decided to give way, allowing the gong to fall over and slide down the hill a bit. However, have no fear; some initial plans are in the works to erect it again, this time a tad to the west. Don’t neglect to make suggestions on how we can effectively drag it back up and soundly stake it to the ground. It will take a collaborative effort, for the slope is treacherous!

            Well, that’s all for now, folks. Don’t forget about Burbank Muzzleloaders, the place to shoot!
