Preamble to the Constitution of the
"IOWA BLACK POWDER FEDERATION"
We, a group of people with a deep abiding interest
in black powder firearms do, band together to form the IOWA BLACK
POWDER FEDERATION to promote the safe use of black powder firearms for
hunting and target shooting; to encourage the collection and display of
black powder firearms as a means of passing on to the emerging
generations a sense of their history and importance in the building of
our nation; to promote and encourage the high level of craftsmanship
required in the building of safe, dependable black powder firearms for
modern use; and to establish an organization that will provide
opportunities for black powder shooters to engage in shooting on a
state wide basis.
