Black powder shooting ranges?

Hey Folks,

Noob here, just registered.
I'd like to resurrect my cap & ball revolver shooting hobby after a fifteen year or so hiatus. I used to shoot out in Carroll County on a friend's property, but he sold that and moved.

After I lost that venue, life and other hobbies took over and I lost interest in the pistols. But, I recently dug them out and cleaned them all and they need shooting!

Where's a good place near North Baltimore area for leisurely black powder shooting? Outdoors would be ideal. Also, where's the best place for black powder shooting supplies? Bass Pro is a long hike from me...

Look at the AGC to shoot

Look at HNP in Essex for supplies

How about Hap Baker, Carroll County. Outdoors, $15/day for non Carroll County residents. Season pass also available. You could join one of the clubs that use the AGC facilities.

Check this post out, Dave has a file with the ranges around the state.

One of the clubs at AGC (Marriotsville) is the Marriotsville Muzzle Loaders. Here's their web site.

You don't have to shoot the formal shoots, but they do have a pistol competition.

Thanks for all the replies, guys. I was in HNP today, as a matter o fact. I think I met Chip. Helluva nice guy and he set me up with some supplies.

Lots of people down at Myrtle Grove welcome black powder shooters enthusiastically.

A lot of good BP shooters at the AGC. A great place to learn and get advioce/recommendations.

Spending time with either Charlie Lewis and Charlie Swinford will result in you becoming a BP fan in a short amount of time. Charlie Swinford always gathers some converts from my NRA classes and the Women On Target clinics I help out with.

AGC...for a breath of fresh air, if you can find any, at their blackpowder "meat" shoot's. Clyde's Sport Shop, located on Hammonds Ferry Road...sells Goex blackpowder, ball and supplies; that is cheaper than Bass Pro.

NSSA... has shoots in Winchester Va., where you can buy all the blackpowder, balls and caps that you want. Like mentioned before...check with Charlie Lewis and Charlie Swinford at AGC, of Marriottsville Muzzleloaders.

Dixie Gun Works...has traditional blackpowder guns and supplies, but does not UPS any blackpowder or caps.

Graf and Sons ammo, might still UPS ground ship Goex blackpowder --- but you have to sign-off for it --- when it reaches your door.
