Your responsibilities with black powder

A muzzleloader is a firearm that is loaded only through the muzzle (the open end of the barrel). Muzzleloaders use special powder to fire, and require special handling.

Important: Always Remember:

Never expose black powder to open flame

Never store black powder in steel, iron, plastic or other material that can spark

Never blow down the barrel of a gun

Never pour powder directly from the flask or horn into the barrel

Never use smokeless powder in a muzzleloader unless the firearm is specifically designed for smokeless powder.
