NRAblog is heading out to the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association's Spring Shoot this weekend in Friendship, Indiana.
Since 2009 the NRA and the NMLRA have been holding joint championships in Friendship, providing shooters with an opportunity to celebrate all things relating to the sport and history of muzzleloading in one action-packed week.
Shooters have the opportunity to not only compete in the NRA National Muzzle Loading Championships, but can simultaneously participate in the NMLRA's National Spring Shoot.
The week has so many matches that there is, without a doubt, something for shooters of all skill levels using all types of equipment.
A Youth Range is featured at the Spring Shoot, developed by the NMLRA as a way to safely teach children how to shoot muzzleloading firearms.
The event also offers Early American living history demonstrations and classes, museum displays, black powder shooting competitions, shopping opportunities, wine tasting, youth activities and some of the finest commercial vendors in the muzzleloading community.
The National Spring Shoot wraps up this weekend, but it'll be back next year and you can check the NMLRA website for all the other great events they hold throughout the year.
