CTOMS™ GSW Treatment Course

June 30th, 2013

Cost: $200

This course is opened to anyone.

This course teaches effective, pre-hospital gunshot wound treatment. It has been designed specifically for hunters and recreational shooters to better prepare for accidents in the field or on the range.

If you enjoy firearms for hunting or recreation and have never taken gun shot wound treatment training, you should take this course!

The course is being taught by CTOMS of Edmonton, AB ( Both instructors have experience as Canadian Forces medics and currently provide training to multiple government and law enforcement agencies for firearm related first aid.
The focus is on gunshot wound treatment, particularly massive haemorrhaging (bleeding) by using gauze, compression and if necessary tourniquets
Registration is $200 and includes a tourniquet and an olaes bandage (elastic compression + gauze combo) to use for training and take home. There will be additional supplies available at discount as well (anything on website).

I already have a first aid kit, why should I take this course?

It is very important for you to not only have some basic medical supplies, but also to train with your equipment!

"When I was in the military I didn’t open a bandage once for training, then come time to use it, it was the first time I had ever seen it."

- Chris, CTOMS Instructor

I see it all the time, guys at the range who went out and bought some expensive quickclot gauze and other supplies, but have zero training to back it up.

First aid skills are not the type of thing you should "learn on the job". When seconds count, you need to know how to use the tools you have so that you can apply them quickly. The only way you can be confident in your skills is to train with your equipment.

"Most people don’t have dedicated ‘training’ gear, so they just don’t train."

- Chris, CTOMS Instructor

CTOMS was founded by guys with real world experience in the field. They know the importance of training over equipment, and if you have equipment, training for that equipment. In this course we won't just sit in the class room, you will be applying tourniquets and hemorrhage control bandages to your buddies!

Do I get a certificate or designation?

No. This course is not a replacement for regular St John's ambulance first aid. You will not receive a CPR designation and probably can't ask for a raise at work. This course is specifically focused on gun shot wound treatment and hemorrhage control which are not addressed in your basic first aid training. These two courses would supplement each other and not duplicate training. We still recommend you take the good old fashioned St John's ambulance basic first aid as good life skill training!

How do I sign up?

You can RSVP Ben or Jon via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The official registration will be at our next Tacrifle match on May 26th. You will need to provide a $100 non-refundable deposit to secure your space when you register. CTOMS will be ordering a bunch of supplies for us, booking transportation and hotel rooms, so this has to be non-refundable.

If you are not coming to the TacRifle match, email us and we can arrange an alternative. Jon and Ben often attend other shooting events around the lower mainland.

Check the Calendar for all match Dates 

For .22 semi automatic rifles.

This year in Action 22, we are leaning towards a more tactical style of shooting and are aiming for high round counts wherever possible, 40 - 60 rounds per stage, on paper and steel target stages.  Bring extra magazines and eye and ear protection is always mandatory.

We follow IPSC safety rules and expect any shooter to be familiar with them.

Match set-up will be the morning of the match 0800, and we appreciate any help you can offer.

Safety briefing at 0930.  First round downrange around 1000.

We shoot rain or shine, so dress appropriately.

Cost $20.00 for members and non-members.  Non-members must display their PAL and valid government picture ID. 

Note: RCMP recently reclasified the butler creek 10/22 magazines to be considered pistol magazines according to them. They are now prohibited unless pinned to 10 rounds.

If you have any questions, or wish to be added to our mailing list, please email Anne at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are always looking for suggestions on new and exciting stages.  If we have sufficient participation, we will conduct a night shoot in the fall.

We hope to see you there.

Have fun!

Q: What kind of rifle and sights do your recommend? I heard that a AR 15 is good for this type of shooting. Correct? Also I heard “red dot” sights are the best for this type of shooting: correct or is this a personal preference? Also what length of barrel would you recommend?

A: Iron sights are fine, but an EoTech is highly recommended. Some shooters like red dot scopes, I don’t personally recommend them as I believe they slow you down. The cheaper imitation holosights are fragile, are underpowered and tend to show poorly in bright light. You are better off with iron sights than these ‘knockoffs’. All of our shooting is under 100 yards and usually under 40 yards. AR15′s are frequently used here, and because of the short ranges, nearly any barrel length will work fine. I think 16″ barrels are quite popular, but barrel length will not be a big factor in match placement. Get some 10 round ‘pistol mags’ for the AR15.

Q: Do I need to take any required courses before shooting with you? I also shoot in IPSC and I needed to take a black badge course.

A: No course is necessary to start, but a Black Badge is not a bad idea given the safety training involved.

Q: What other gear would you recommend and where would I get this gear?

A: Some kind of rig to hold your mags is good. A simple belt with mag pouches is fine or you can buy a Tac Vest of some kind. I like having a dump pouch for convenience. Dave’s Surplus in New Westminster is one place that carries everything you will need (gear, optics, ammo) and are strong supporters of our events. I highly recommend them … One last bit of advice is not to wait until you have the ‘ideal’ equipment before shooting a TR match. Any semiauto will do, including SKS’s … In the case of the SKS, it is recommended that you practice reloading with stripper clips ahead of time unless its a D version. BDU pockets can hold mags, so a vest isn’t absolutely necessary, although your IPSC belt can be adapted easily enough for this sport. Lastly, don’t worry about not having expensive optics, iron sights work well enough, and although slightly slower work EVERY time.

Q: Are spectators allowed?

A: Yes, but spectators are charged a $5 insurance fee and must sign in. If you are considering dropping by ‘just to take a look’ you should bring a rifle and ammo just in case as most people decide its not all that intimidating and lots of fun and wind up shooting anyways.

Q: Do I need a PAL to compete?

A: You will need to show your PAL in order to sign in as a participant. We do not record the number but require showing the permit as a means of screening participants.

Q: Will there be an opportunity to ‘sight in’ my rifle at the match?

A: There will be no opportunity to sight in just before or during an event. Participants are advised to sight in their rifles ahead of time.

Q: This sounds like a great event. I’d like to volunteer to help out in some way so it can keep running. Is there any need for volunteers?

A: Yes. We set up the match the Saturday afternoon just before the day of the event, and we sometimes test out stages at that time. You might want to assist with that, helpers are always welcome. During the event itself there are targets to be taped and clean up at the end of the match.

Q: What is Action22? I see it posted on the Events Schedule.A: Action22 is much the same as Tactical Rifle, just shot with semiauto .22 rimfire rifles. The bulk of the targets are steel, allowing for easy setup and shooting rimfire ammo means more shooting at a lower price. The ability to use 25 or 30 round magazines is a big plus too! The best rifles for this event include the Ruger 10/22 or the Remington 597.

Q: What are the entry fees for a Tactical Rifle match?

A: The current entry fee is $20 per participant.

TAC Rifle Rules

Basic Rules For a Safe & Fun Match

  1. Treat ALL firearms as if they are LOADED! All rifles must be UNLOADED, safety applied with actions open AT ALL TIMES and placed upright in the racks provided unless actively shooting a Stage. 
  2. Do NOT pick up your rifle to shoot the Stage until directed to do so by the RO with the Range Command “SHOOTER TO THE LINE”. 
  3. You may then safely pick up your UNLOADED rifle, watch your MUZZLE direction and advance to the Firing Line. The RO will then give the Range Command “IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE COURSE OF FIRE, LOAD AND MAKE READY!” If you do NOT understand, ASK. 
  4. Load your rifle only when directed by the RO to “LOAD & MAKE READY!” Keep your finger OFF the trigger until you are engaging a target. When the Timer’s Start Signal sounds (‘BEEP’), commence engaging the targets. 
  5. Be aware of your target and what is beyond your target. Do NOT fire a round that may leave the range (for example, over a berm). This includes being mindful of the “breaking 90″ rule. 
  6. When finished shooting a stage, rifles must be unloaded, actions locked back and safety applied. The rifle should be slung over the shoulder, muzzle up or down prior to walking back to the firing line. If not shooting, do NOT advance from the Firing Line downrange until the RO gives the Range Command “RANGE IS CLEAR”. 
  7. The RO cannot be everywhere. Each Competitor should monitor their own safety, and the safety of other Competitors. Safety infractions should be pointed out to offending Competitors. They will appreciate it. If they do not appreciate it, notify the RO or the RSO or the Match Director. 
  8. When moving between stages, all rifles are to be slung over the shoulder, with muzzles pointing down or up. 
  9. Rifles must only be cased/uncased at the designated SAFETY AREA. 
  10. Attendance at the pre-match Shooters Meeting is MANDATORY.
