Established in 1978, the Skagit Muzzle Loaders brought together a group of local people who all shared a similar love for this country's history as well as black powder firearms. We are a family friendly club with members from all walks of life.
We are primarily focused on the time frame of America's history when the Mountain Man / Fur Trapper roamed the mountains of the West, circa 1800-1840.
We hold monthly meetings at our awesome club house/range, followed by a delicious pot luck. Once we are well fed, we get out our black powder guns and make a lot of good smoke. We have friendly competitions as well as help teach folks in the safe handling and shooting of firearms.
