  Training
Posted by: Briggers - 04-10-2004, 10:02 PM - Forum: Coaching & Training - No Replies

I am setting up a "squash Ladder" type training program, primarily for the International Team but I don't see any problem with anyone taking part, should they wish to.<br><br>Those taking part will be entered on a list in no particular order, in order to get a higher place on the list you may challenge either of the shooters two places above you, if you win you take their place on the list. The list will be available on the MLAGB website.<br><br>Challenges must take place while you are both on the range together, either at practice sessions or at competitions, if you are challenged you must accept or loose your place, unless there is good reason.<br><br>If you are interested get back to me by e-mail david@mlaic.org<br><br>Briggers

  Gunsmith advice
Posted by: rugeruser - 04-10-2004, 07:48 PM - Forum: Black Powder Chat - Replies (1)

Hello all<br>Looking for a recommended gunsmith...<br>I have just purchased a second hand Ruger Old Army and am looking forward to entering the muzzle loading fraternity!<br>It is in immaculate condition other than one small problem.<br>When at half cock the cylinder stop beneath the cylinder does not fully retract which prevents the cylinder from turning freely.<br>Obviously this is something which needs to be addressed and I would appreciate advice on where to go as I know there are some gunsmiths that will do as much damage as good.<br>I live in Surrey.<br><br>Many thanks for your help

By now MLAGB members should have received their Autumn Newsletter, which I trust you are enjoying.  As always I am keen for feedback, either here or via contact details as published in the Newsletter.<br><br>Please note the tight deadline for submissions for the Winter Newsletter, i.e. with me by 18th October.  As ever, if you have ideas for contributions but don't feel able to write the article yourself, let me know.  I may be able to coerce someone into writing it for you!  Big Grin<br><br>Kim

  Short Range Championships
Posted by: ResearchPress - 03-10-2004, 08:17 PM - Forum: Events - Replies (5)

I enjoyed the MLAGB Short Range Championship weekend at Wedgnock (25/26 Sept). Always good to meet friends on the range and spend a pleaseant evening in Warwick dining out.<br><br>I'm still curious as to why so few members of the MLAGB seem interested in attending some of the shooting events. Mid and long range shooting appears to be an area of increasing interest, however the short range matches appear to be waning somewhat to me.<br><br>Any thoughts on what can be done to generate more interest? Even the Pedersoli Challenge where there were two rifles offered as prizes by the event sponsor didn't seem to draw out a great entry.<br><br>David

  Target Sports & Classic Arms Magazines
Posted by: ResearchPress - 03-10-2004, 08:08 PM - Forum: Books & Ephemera - Replies (3)

I see Target Sports magazine has now been relaunched and redesigned following the change in publisher. Articles seem a bit shorter to me, and I hope this does not lead to a lack of detail in some reports. The October issue includes a report (edited a little from my original submission) on the MLAGB's 'Pedersoli Challenge', plus the usual MLAGB newsletter page.<br><br>The same publishers now own Classic Arms magazine. I still can't establish what the future of this magazine is. I hope we don't see its demise as there doesn't seem to be anything else about that covers the same field.<br><br>Does anyone know of any UK magazines covering arms, armour and military subjects?<br><br>David

Welcome to the new MLAGB discussion forum. I trust both members of the MLAGB and muzzle loaders world wide will enjoy contributing.<br><br>There are many forums covering muzzle loading and black powder shooting sports, so I suspect there will be a slow growth of membership here. Do please check in on a regular basis though and contribute where you can.<br><br>David<br><br>MLAGB Web Site Manager
