There is only one reason to shoot Black Powder. It’s really GREAT FUN! You’ll love the boom, the smoke, and the smell! Add to this the sense of history you experience as the long arm or pistol thumps your cast lead ball bulls-eye bound. We all love movies and books showing – Pirates with flintlocks, Bush rangers with cap ‘n ball revolvers, Civil War warriors using muzzle and breech loading rifles, and Gentlemen afield with the old fowling pieces! It can be quite addictive researching these arms of yesterday, let alone possessing them and shooting them! Why not ‘have a go’? We enthusiasts meet each month to safely shoot, learn, admire firearms, swap experiences and anecdotes relating to ”Shooting the Black”. This is done in a relaxed friendly atmosphere while safely and gently competing in appropriately designed matches on 25 or 100 yd ranges.
