    Are there any West Virginia teams?

    Long time N.M.L.R.A. muzzle-loading shooter here but new to rifled muskets. Live near Beckley, WV. Interested in traveling to the Spring Nationals to watch the shooting and look at muskets and possibly buy. I was curious if there are any WV teams as I do not see any listed.

    Thank you

    Bob

    Welcome to the board!

    There are a number of teams and just because there isn't a team listed in WV, there are teams in VA that are just across the border from you. I've contacted some members in WV about you.

    That is great Bob - You will love using the rifle muskets in skirmish competition! I am on a team that has members from the eastern panhandle (which used to be VA), but that would be a bit far for you. There are probably teams much closer, including Roanoke area. I suggest Emailing John Doyle, Allegheny Regional Commander at Trapdoor1888 -at- yahoo.com and he may be able to give you some good contacts. In the meantime, come on over and visit Nationals and see how much fun it is!

    Thanks for the warm welcome

    I will definitely be there at the nationals this spring. I shoot flint offhand at the NMLRA Friendship nationals each year and at the territorial matches and am eager visit the NSSA and learn.

    Thanks everyone

    Thank you Mike

    My shooting partner is interested also. I'll see if he can get free for one of your skirmishes and we'll call you.

    Regards,

    Bob
