ROCKY RIVER REGULATORS
Welcome to the web page of the DSC’s
“Rocky River Regulators”. We would like to invite
you to join in one of the hottest growing sports ......Cowboy
Action Shooting (CAS). Unlike most other shooting disciplines,
Cowboy Action Shooting is not only a test of skill, but also
a chance to dress up and “play cowboy”. Entire
families of shooters, in full period dress, toting authentic
and reproduction cowboy firearms, turn out to meet and compete.
During the past few years, membership in DSC’s Rocky
River Regulators has grown, and the town of Rocky River, an
honest to goodness western town, has sprung up near the banks
of the Clinton River in DSC’s James Delaney Park. All
year round, rain or shine, monthly Cowboy Action Shooting
matches take place in Rocky River. Everyone is welcome to
compete, or just stop by and watch a match or two.
(Please remember that DSC Range
Safety Rules require that everyone on any DSC Range, must
have eye and ear protection, and must wear them).

Cowboy Action Shooting has become a very popular sporting
event that is as much fun to watch as it is to shoot! Equipment
requirements include (2) two single action revolvers with
holsters, a shotgun and a rifle that shoots “revolver”
ammo. Targets consist of steel plates and poppers. We have
both cowboys and cowgirls of all ages that dress up and come
to DSC to shoot in our monthly matches.
(Note: Revolver velocities must be below
1000 fps, rifle velocities must be below 1400 fps, and shotgun
must use #4 or smaller shot, #71/2 shot recommended.
No Magnum loads are allowed in this sport.
Lead bullets only!)
The Rocky River Regulators hold weekly practice sessions to
allow shooters to hone their skills in Cowboy Action Shooting.
Practices are held on Saturday in the town of Rocky River
located in DSC’s James Delaney Park. See the "R.O.
Schedule" link for details.
Matches normally take place on the third Sunday of every month
come rain or shine. See the "Schedule of Matches"
link for details. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. followed
by a mandatory safety meeting commencing at 9:30 a.m. After
that, the shooting begins.

Shooting, or just want to watch a bunch of folks have a real
