Welcome to the Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club Black Powder website. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun format for various Black Powder shooting events. If you’re a new shooter or an experienced Muzzle Stuffer, we have something to offer you!

We shoot on the second and fourth Sunday of each month on the small bore range starting at 7 am. We also shoot both black powder cartridge and Long Range Lever Action Silhouette on the high power range on the fourth Sunday starting at 8 am. This BPCR can be shot with smokeless powder and your choice of sights.

Many times people “inherit” Black Powder rifles and don’t know how to shoot them. We can help. If you’re interested in joining us for the first time, just show up at a shoot, we will partner you up with one of our experienced shooters and will provide one-on-one instruction. You’ll be “in the black” in no time.

If you’re interested in trying Muzzle Loading but don’t have the equipment, give me a call. We will provide a rifle and a shooter so you can see how much fun it is. We shoot paper and steel silhouettes on alternating months. We also shoot pistol and shotgun.

Please remember juniors shoot for free.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me. We hope you enjoy all that Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club has to offer.
