Blackpowder







The term Black powder was coined in the late 19th century to distinguish prior gunpowder formulations from the new and semi-smokeless powders.

 

The black powder section of NSRG consists of many types of shooting which includes flintlock, percussion and black powder cartridge types of firearms.






Examples of a flintlock, percussion cap pistol and a black powder cartridge type rifle.

The only stipulation is it must be loaded with black powder. 

 

All are welcome at  these shoots including non-club members.  If you are interested in this type of shooting and don't have a black powder firearm of your own please still consider attending as it is likely one of the other shooters may let you try out theirs.
