Welcome to the Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club Black Powder website. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun format for Black Powder shooting events. If you’re a new shooter or an experienced Muzzle Stuffer, we have something to offer you.
Many times people “inherit” Black Powder rifles and don’t know how to shoot them. We can help. If you’re interested in joining us for the first time, you can contact me ahead of time or just show up at a shoot. We will partner you up with one of our shooters and provide one-on-one instruction. You’ll be “in the black” in no time.
If you’re interested in trying Muzzle Loading but don’t have the equipment, give me a call. We will provide a rifle and a shooter so you can see how much fun it is. We shoot paper and steel silhouettes on alternating months. We also shoot pistol and shotgun.
The second Sunday is usually our rifle shoot and the fourth Sunday is usually our pistol and shotgun shoot. Our schedule is subject to change so please contact me if you have any questions. Muzzle Loading shoots are on the Small Bore Range.
We also shoot Black Powder Cartridge Rifles. BPCR shoots on the fourth Sunday at 8:30am on the High Power Range. This can be shot with smokeless powder and your choice of sights. Please remember juniors shoot for free.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me. We hope you enjoy all that Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club has to offer.
