............ Including modern inlines to the NMLRA may boost membership, but the club may survive in name only as older members pass on and take their old way with them. On the other hand there may be a lot of folks like me that were never exposed to traditional MLs and might develop an interest if given the opportunity. I can see both sides of the argument.
Here's my take on it, right or wrong...........
Traditionalists are hard headed as a rock, and they want nothing to do with anything "modern", especially modern inline rifles. However its quite the opposite for the new shooters of modern inline rifles. They are very interested in the traditional rifles in general. Expose them to traditional rifles and they may end up purchasing one. Many of the young guys aren't as financially well off as some of us older gents. However, one day hopefully they will.
