I know there's a couple guys on here that seem pretty close to the NMLRA so I'm guessing there's people here that know. I hear people talk about Friendship, see the results posted from matches, and hear the talk about the NMLRA. I've looked at joining but it seems as though the organization is fading? Maybe I'm wrong but my perception is that the organization started at a time when traditional was the only option. It has since grown at a rate slower than the muzzleloader market has progressed. I guess what I'm wondering is why isn't the organization more progressive? Why don't they accept all forms of muzzleloaders? It seems like with an estimated 4 million muzzleloader shooters there's the potential to make the NMLRA grow. Understand I'm not trying to ruffle feathers and I'm not trying to be critical. I'm honestly curious. I love muzzleloaders and would love to see them grow as a whole. Heck look at archery and the way the ATA represents them. I know not everyone agrees with crossbows or even compound bows but the ATA accepts all and continues to grow at a rapid rate. If the NMLRA accepted traditional, modern inlines, and smokeless it could start growing too. I think the latter two areas is where the bulk of the market is growing and will continue to grow.
