ABOUT THE VMLC
|Relive the excitement of bygone
days by shooting Black Powder firearms,
a truly engrossing and satisfying sport.
New members and visitors are always welcomed to attend the VMLC monthly shoots at the SSAA Eagle Park Shooting Complex located near Little River on the third Saturday of every month. Even if you don't own any muzzle loading or black powder firearms, knowledgeable and generous VMLC members are always eager to give you a few shots! In addition, supervision and support is given to all novice muzzle loading and black powder shooters.
The VMLC conducts exciting and fun competitions on the third Saturday of every month, including handguns, cowboy single action, rifles, black powder cartridge rifles, shotguns, and cannon.
In November many members camp at Eagle Park for the two-day State Championships where lots of black powder and lead is expended during the day, and at night everyone relaxes at the free barbecue exchanging black powder stories and generally having a good time.
VMLC Membership also includes an entertaining and informative newsletter, The Ramrod, which is sent to members every month. The Ramrod includes shooters’ scores, VMLC record scores, coming events and articles of interest to the black powder enthusiast.
