The New Mexico Big Horn Gun Club (NMBHGC) was founded by several local black powder shooters in 1977. The club is a non-profit organization, and is an NRA affiliated club. Club membership is open to the public, and new members are always welcomed. Our members come from all surrounding communities, including Edgewood, Moriarty, Tijeras, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

The purpose of the NMBHGC is to promote the shooting sports and to provide a safe range facility for the enjoyment of its membership. The club sponsors various special events and activities throughout the year, including it’s annual black powder rendezvous, “The Cache Le Plew.”
