Black Powder

Black Powder Shoots are held on the third Saturday of every month, except October when the Sespe Rendezvous takes place.
The Ojai Valley Gun Club offers the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of shooting experiences. Some club members are dedicated to the study, collection, restoration, and shooting of original and replica black-powder firearms. Typically, this includes percussion and flintlock rifles and pistols reflecting the period from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War before the introduction of the modern cartridge gun.


Regular monthly shoots are held the 3rd weekend of each month (except October), starting at 9:00 a.m. Only muzzleloaders of the traditional design are allowed. Modern "in-line" actions are not accepted at these shoots.  

Sespe Rendezvous

Every year, during the 3rd week of October, the Ojai Valley Gun Club devotes the entire gun range to this event.

Black Powder holds a business meeting on the 1st Wednesday of the month and a social get-together on the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except in October) at Round Table Pizza in Ventura.
