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 July 2017


   Sunday July 2nd was the day we all got together for the annual Independence day cookout and potluck feast at the club. There were hot dogs and shredded beef, potato salad, guacamole, chips and drinks and desserts of several kinds. Eight shooters got together for the annual flintlock novelty match. The entry fee was 5 dollars We shot toothpicks, playing cards, bottle caps, Pennies, and popsicle sticks. Sam Baseman took the 12 dollar first place prize with a borrowed gun. The 5 dollar second place winner was Artie Hartington, and Alan Elliot won the three dollar third place money. It was a fun day, with great weather! Thanks to all who came and participated.


   July 9th, was the annual “any gun” bench rest match sponsored by John Clevenger. Ten shooters were in attendance. Cartridge shooters shot at two hundred, and one hundred yards, while muzzleloaders shot at one hundred yards and fifty yards. First place was taken by Lee Bowman with a score of 192-7x out of a possible 200 points. Followed by Sam Baseman with 190-5x. next was Tom Trevor with 189-3x, and John Clevenger with 184-4x. Jannu Lorentsen took fifth place with 163. Prizes were powder, primers, caps, lead, gun oil, patches and other sundry items. Thanks to all who attended. 


   July is a month with five Sundays. That means that there will be a “fifth” Sunday trail walk on Sunday the 30th. Bring out your favorite cartridge gun or muzzleloader, and stroll along the trail while getting off spectacular shots at the various steel targets along the canyon walls. It’s a twenty-five round match, but you’ll want to bring a few extra for practice.


   Next month’s match will be our bi-monthly silhouette match. Cartridge or muzzleloaders may compete. Come out and try your skills at various steel animal targets from twenty to a hundred meters it a good shoot, and you may win some cash!


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