Just a reminder that this coming Saturday, 23rd July is the annual muzzle loading helice competition at Rugby & District Trap Club, Crick, Warwickshire. This unusual shooting event at plastic winged targets is the closest you'll get to the old shooting sport of live box pigeon shooting. This is a 20 target competition with no elimination, shot in squads of 5 or 6 shooters, each shooting 5 targets before the next squad comes on (it takes all day!). Shooting starts at 10.00 and breakfast & refreshments are available from the clubhouse. This really is a great spectacle, especially with our muzzle loaders. Hope to see you there.

Welcome to this web page and thank you for looking. The MLAGB is a friendly open organisation with a wealth of knowledge and of course we are always looking for new members! Please click here if you’d like to join us or simply learn more!

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.
