“The National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association 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 history of muzzleloading firearms is the history of this nation. These are the guns that bear the mark of American pride in individual skill, patience, and appreciation for enduring beauty and quality. The NMLRA is the association for muzzleloading shooters and hunters: men, women, and young people interested in preserving our American heritage through living history reenactments, a variety of competitive shooting opportunities at levels ranging from local matches to international competition, the added challenge of hunting with a muzzleloader, and the power of an association defending their rights to hunt with, shoot, and own muzzleloading firearms.
Muzzle Loader matches at ERGC occur on the 1st Saturday of each month.
