WMLA Demonstration Presentation Application

Over the past months there has been several requests to the WMLA to do demonstrations. As an organization we want to provide these but under certain conditions due mostly to timing constraints we are unable to take these tasks on. Therefore in the future we are asking groups to fill out a request form and present it to us. Following is a printable copy of this form with information on where to send it. We deeply appreciate these requests and want to keep the spirit of muzzle loading alive.

 WMLA Demonstration Presentation Application:

The WMLA has representatives throughout the state. If there are any questions about the association or black powder shooting please feel free to contact one of these reps.

​​One way to support muzzle loading is to join the 
"National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association"

Welcome to the Wisconsin Muzzle Loading Association
The association was started in 1982 by a dedicated group of individuals who envisioned a need to keep the black powder tradition alive. Thirty nine years later the association is still going strong and groups through out the state gather to shoot matches or celebrate the traditions of the rendezvous.

If you are a member, thank you for your support. If you are not, come out and join us at an event or better yet become a member. We are always happy to see new faces.

Please consider becoming a member or keeping up your membership,
the association can use you.
