Tim Herron Shooting

2 Day Practical Performance Course - March 8/9

 

Tim Herron is a multi-division USPSA Grand Master a Master Class shooter in IDPA, with experience in defensive shooting, IDPA, Steel Challenge, bullseye and he will be bringing his flagship 2-Day course to Pima Pistol Club on March 8th & 9th 2025.

The class is two days long and focuses on the practical shooting skills that will help you more confidently plan, tackle, and shave time from your performance with a pistol. While this class does contain some advanced fundamentals, the class is dynamic and stage oriented. The class also includes a day of “firing line” type fundamentals training, however student’s don’t burn through ammo like a regular class, as Tim believes that when it comes to proper practice quality is much more important than quantity, so each and every round fired will count!  This class will also cover principles of efficient practice, and how to structure your practices to identify and address your weaknesses.

 

Students will run a full “competitive pistol” type stage, multiple times through the course and will include elements such as entries and exits, opportunities to shoot on the move, awkward positions, close and far targets, and high-risk targets.
