The MLAGB was formed in 1952 and is the Governing Body for muzzle loading within the UK. Its objectives are to encourage an interest in muzzle loading firearms, to promote, regulate and safeguard their use and to preserve their freedom of collection.

It is also represented regionally in many clubs with their Affiliated Club membership. The Branch structure also offers newcomers to the sport opportunity to meet like-minded individuals in their region and receive proper training in the safe use and handling of both muzzle loading firearms and black powder.

As the sport’s National Governing Body it is also recognised as such by the Muzzle Loaders Associations International Committee (MLAIC), World Governing Body for muzzle loading shooting.

Muzzle loading today is an exciting sport, the variety of which is unmatched. From the casual target shooters, to collectors through to the keenest marksman with international aspirations there is something to offer.
