Black Powder Class

Immediately following the upcoming Fall Board of Managers meeting, I will be conducting a NRA Muzzleloading Class on November 11th and 12th.  This class will be divided into two elements: a six hour classroom portion and a six to seven hour field exercise where the students will demonstrate the safe handling and firing of a black powder rifle/musket, pistol and shotgun.   It is necessary that anyone interested in attending this class send me their name, address and phone number prior to October 1st.  This is necessary as I need to send all the participants the class materials prior to attending this class. 

The recommended cost for this class is $150.00; however, in an effort to train as many CASSAR members in the safe handling of black powder firearms the cost of his class will be $35.00.  This fee will help to cover the cost of the class materials, classroom rental and shooting materials.  Due to the student instructor ratio the field exercises are limited to six students; therefore, I will be dividing the participants into three groups of six.  These groups will be scheduled over a two day period, with one immediately following the classroom training and the other two scheduled the following day.  

If you are interested in attending this class please send me your name, address, and phone number to:  The $35.00 fee will be collected the day of the class.  The class will be limited to 18 students.

This class is only being offered to CASSAR members.
