|Our 400' Covered Firing Range
Location and Club
The Old Saratoga Muzzleloading Club was chartered
by the NMLRA in 1949, thus we celebrate over 60 years of black powder shooting.
OSMLC is located in historic Saratoga County, New York, 4 miles from the Saratoga National Historic Battlefield.
With the Revolutionary War history breathing all around us, we offer black powder shooting events year round. See the
Calendar of Events.
We have a 400' covered firing range, a campground with
electrical hookups, a clubhouse with indoor bathrooms, a cookshack, and showers. The shoot schedule for our Spring
and Fall Shoots offers 50 matches, including but not limited to, caplock and fllintlock rifles and pistols, muskets,
black powder cartridge rifles, bench guns, youth matches, ladies matches, and mortar matches.
OSMLC has also hosted the NY NMLRA Territorial Matches for over 25 years.
