Calgary and District Target Shooters Association
Milo and Shepard Ranges
We do not currently have a match director for Service Rifle events. If you are interested in running these matches, please contact the Rifle Director.
The matches hosted by CDTSA and commonly referred to as "2-Gun" are "outlaw" matches not officially sanctioned by any governing body, such as 3-Gun Nation, and not bound by their rules. We use the following rule book:CDTSA 2-Gun Rules
CDTSA 2-Gun Divisions and Gear
All CDTSA 2-Gun matches are held at the Milo range. Please note the requirement to come down Range Road 223 and backtrack along Township Road 184. Travelling this route keeps traffic down in front of the residences on Range Road 224.
It is very important that we get a good turnout to help set up the match the day before, as well as help from all the participants to put stuff away when we're done. These are fun matches, but they can only happen if everyone chips in to help. Setup starts at 10:00 AM the day before the main match (Saturday).
Registration on match day begins at 9:00 AM. Registration will be followed by a safety briefing at 9:30 AM. Attendance at the safety briefing is mandatory. If you arrive after the safety briefing, you will be turned away.
We do not require holster courses. There may be parts of the courses of fire that are different if you do not have a holster course. Basically, if you don't have a holster course, you won't be allowed to start a stage with a round in the chamber of your pistol. We do, however, frequently require you to start with an empty pistol regardless of training or certification as part of the CoF for a stage. Our matches are set up to appeal to both 2-Gun aficionados as well as first-timers.
The Milo range is far enough from the nearest town that you cannot run off to get lunch, water, sunscreen, etc during the match. This is an outdoor event. Sometimes it's hot, sometimes it's cold, sometimes it's windy, sometimes it's muddy. Carts or wagons are a recommended way to transport your gear and supplies from range to range. Our range is built on a 1/4 section, so there's some walking involved when going from stage to stage. Bring lunch, water, sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, sunglasses, etc.
