“The National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association (NMLRA) exists to promote, support, nurture, and preserve NMLRA’s and our nation’s rich historical heritage in the sport of muzzleloading through recreational, educational, historical, and cultural venues such as match competition, hunting, gun making and safety, historical re-enactments, exhibits, museums, libraries, and other related programs.”
The Mission Statement of the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association is the perfect segue into what muzzleloading is all about. Steeped with history, these old-fashioned member clubs and gatherings afford excellent meeting places for family and friends alike. They are also the perfect venue for newcomers to become acquainted with a way of life that no longer exists. And with a huge focus on firearms, it’s also a super way to get involved with the firearms of yesterday – and show off your marksmanship – with a long list of shooting events available all around the country.
