Black Powder Guns to Boom RATON, N.M. - Black powder cannons, rifles, muskets and handguns are roaring and flaming through July 5 on the grounds of the National Rifle Assn.'s Outdoor Center at Raton, New Mexico. The old-style guns, their shooter-owners and a throng of visitors from five states are at the center to help the nation celebrate its 200th birthday in a manner befitting its origins. Co-hosts for the shoot are the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Assn., N.M.L.R:A. member clubs in New Mexico, and the N.R.A. The occasion is what the N.M.L.R.A. calls its South Central Territorial Championship, calculated to pull in shooters from New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Kansas to compete in national level matches. About 400 to 500 competitors are firing smoothbore, flintlock muskets, which were the principal small arms of the Revolutionary War; caplock "Minie" rifles of the Civil War Colt and Remington revolvers and single shot "Kentucky" pistols; Pennsylvania-Kentucky long rifles and even cannon. In all, over 40 matches are slated. Some of the arms used will be well preserved originals, but many will be modern manufactured reproductions of the old guns. \ '' Page4A Garden City Telegram Friday, July 2,1976 Chas. E.
