Keep Your Powder Dry
The Spokane Falls Muzzle Loaders hold monthly shoots on the second Sunday of each month (third Sunday in May so as not to conflict with Mother’s Day) at Spokane Rifle Club. The Muzzle Loaders’ monthly shoots are hosted by a team of club members and lunch is usually provided for the shoot participants.
Founded in 1962 and members of the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association (NMLRA), Spokane Falls Muzzle Loaders is a competitive, traditional muzzle loading club.
As a club, the Spokane Falls Muzzle Loaders believe in the true form of muzzle loading using traditional flintlock and percussion firearms, black powder only, and patched round ball projectiles.
The club competes at a variety of distances ranging from 25 yards to 100 yards, and uses a variety of targets based on the standards set by the NMLRA as well as novelty targets designed by club members.
In addition to the monthly shoots held at Spokane Rifle Club, Spokane Falls Muzzle Loaders host an Annual Rendezvous at the Mica Shooting Range each year during the first weekend of June.
Monthly shoot fees are $11 per shooter. Membership is not required to participate in the monthly shoots, however an annual family membership to the Spokane Falls Muzzle Loaders is just $15.
Pistol Competition at 25 yards
3 Rifle Matches at their discretion
1 Rifle Match at the Specific Monthly Aggregate requirement
Shotgun competition runs April through October
Optional specialty matches (smooth bore or rifled musket) based on shooter interest
