The muzzleblasts.com domain, subdomains, content, etc., are neither affiliated with theNMLRA nor its paper magazine Muzzle Blasts
This section is reserved for potential future development.
During the year of 1998 and the beginnings of 1999, an idea was born. That idea was the germination of Muzzle Blasts Online. After lengthy discussions and extended negotiations, CR Labs Inc., a small custom software and intenet services provider (founded on the priciples and mythology of the erstwhile AT&T Bell Labs) and the National Muzzleloading Rifle Association came to a collaborative agreement.
CR Labs Inc., d/b/a firelands.net, the internet portion of the business, secured muzzleblasts.com and the fun began. The NMLRA provided content from their paper publication Muzzle Blasts, complete with the non-exclusive copyright to said content to CR Labs Inc. CR Labs Inc., utilized the raw content to create an electronic analog of the paper magazine. Said electronic analog still exists on the original website.
In the spring of 2000, the NMLRA withdrew support for Muzzle Blasts Online and the electronic publication ceased adding content.
The domains muzzleblasts.com, muzzleblastsonline.com, muzzleblastsonline.net, muzzleblastsonline.org; their subdomains; the content contained therein; etc. are neither affiliated with the publication Muzzle Blasts which is published by the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association (NMLRA) nor the NMLRA itself.
