Long Rifle Shoots

Anyone know of gun clubs/organizations that have Long Gun shoots in South Central or Southeast PA?

Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers has woods walks throughout the winter months.

USAF_SP is one member on here who I know shoots there.

Here's a few more to look into, that are closer to Havre d Grace:

Lancaster County Muzzleloading Rifle Association

Lancaster County Longrifles

I thought there was one in York County, close to Delta maybe. Try contacting Cabin Creek Muzzleloading or Dixon's. I'm sure either of those could give you some good references.

I do shoot the woodswalk league at Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers. They will start up again in mid January. Don't have to be a member to shoot as it is open to the public. I have not had a chance to shoot any other shoots in the area

The Tomahawks Blackpowder Club are located in southern York Co., located in the center of New Bridgeville, Airville and Craily on Pickel Road off of Lucky Road.
Shoots are normally the 3rd Sunday each month, this month it is on the 15th

Range opens at 10:00 for paper matches or just to warm up.
The Woods walk is the main match and starts at 11:00

This month to get ready for flintlock season the woods walk will be life-size cardboard deer targets, with a running deer target.

Matches are open to visitors and percussion or flintlock rifles or smoothbore (single round ball)
New for this year, .22 rimfire can be used for the matches, you can shoot iron sights for score or scoped rifles for fun.

If you have a buddy that wants to shoot and doesn't have a M.L. have him bring a .22


There are several of the local little bridges that are still out from the flood, including the one on Lucky road.

Columbia Fish and Game have a few shoots through out the year. Delta-Peachbottom F&G did have them, not so sure they still do. A few times a year at a club near Boyertown, PA, Blue Mountain Muzzleloaders, Blue Ridge Muzzle loaders, The Pennsylvania Federation of Black Powder shooters puts out an annual book with a calendar of shoots all across the state. Costs about 12 or 15 and includes membership. There is a largish rendezvous for four days the beginning of May every year down at Muddy Run Park near Holtwood PA, (Lancaster county) It usually follows a week after the Market Fair at Ft Frederick down in Maryland. Look in the Muzzle blasts magazine from the NMLRA.

Thanks Gents! Very helpful. Just received my 50 caliber Isaac Haines model flintlock built by Jackie Brown from Missippi. The 50 caliber was built and shipped for $1,180. He used a 38 inch swamped barrel, single trigger, aged iron furniture, L&R Classic lock, Super premium curly maple wood. He's now building me a Lancaster style 45 cal using parts from a project rifle I picked up in Western Maryland this summer. 44 inch Douglas barrel with German Silver furnature. I requested he build these rifle on the Plain Jaine side since I would be using them for hunting and target shooting. No inlays, patch box or fancy carving.

Plain Jane huh? That's a beautiful rifle.
