Black Powder Movie (Quicktime
American pioneering spirit is being kept alive and well at
the Detroit Sportsmen's Congress
by the Clinton River Muzzleloaders (CRM).
Join us and take part in the great American family tradition
of black powder shooting.
Muzzleloading practice is held every Thursday from 6:00 p.m.
until dusk and alternates between the Woods-Walk and 50 Yard
ranges in Delaney Park throughout the summer. Tuesdays also
feature the Mini-Rendezvous on the Primitive Range, starting
at 9:00 am, that features food N shoot'en N fun. Come on out
and enjoy a day on the range with your long rifle, smoothbore,
musket, In-line or lever-gun. Pistols and revolvers are welcome
too! Sometimes, we even have Canons and mortars as well!
Our winter schedule features shooting on the Dequindre indoor
range, on Monday evenings, with reduced loads in long guns
as well as a well attended pistol league and just plain, fun,
Blackpowder cartridge rifle practice is every Monday night
throughout the summer on the DSC state of the art 200-yard
rifle range. This evening is open to anyone who wants to shoot
at greater distances with his or her blackpowder cartridge
or muzzleloading rifle.
A monthly primitive woods walk match is held, generally,
on the second Sunday of every month at the Delaney Park Primitive
Range. This is a match that is shot from pocket or pouch and
consists of nonspecific targets at nonspecific distances.
This match that features primitive costuming, can separate
the prowess of the true long-hunter from the would-be and
is great practice for hunting as well as fun for all!
The Primitive Range and woodswalks feature targets that can
be shot with any muzzleloading long-arm as well as many modern
arms. Contact a committee member for details.
Also did you know that the Clinton River Muzzle-Loaders,
Senior Division, includes crew-served weapons, along with
rifles & trade guns?
