Class Offerings

 

2-day Practical Performance Class

 

(This is the flagship class)

 

Space allowing, we will set up a full stage, for students to run through at the beginning of class. The stage will include a number of elements such as entries and exits, opportunities to shoot on the move, awkward positions, close and far targets, and high risk arrays. This first run through will be an assessment tool, helping the instructor to figure out your shooting style and where improvements can be made. Throughout the class we will occasionally revisit this stage, and use parts of it to isolate and develop skills, and set up drills.

 

Classes consist of 10-13 students, and are two days long. Classes are focused 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 we wont burn through ammo like a regular class. Therefore, the round counts are bit lower than what you might have seen at traditional 2-day classes in the past – we will make them count. I am a firm believer that when it comes to proper practice, quality is much more important than quantity, so this class will also cover principles of efficient practice, and how to structure your practices to identify and address your weaknesses. Students should plan on bringing a lunch. 

In addition, we'll be covering:

1-Day Practice with Purpose Workshop

HOW DO I GET BETTER?

Every competitive shooter has wondered at least once. I know what I’m supposed to do, but how do I get there? I have a mountain of problems, and just knowing I have them isn’t getting me anywhere – where do I start? Why does improvement feel IMPOSSIBLE right now?  I took XXX's class, and there was so much information... but how do I USE it?

 

This is a collaborative class between Tim Herron and AJ Zito, built entirely around one concept:

Showing you how to practice.

 

We can give you the knowledge, but at the end of the day YOU have to make you better, and we will show you how.  

 

The first step is learning how to focus your time, energy, and ammunition the most effectively. Suitable for any level of shooter, the Practice with Purpose workshop is designed to help you recognize areas of potential, and build practice routines for targeted, purposeful improvement. We’ll cover the importance of keeping a practice log, regimenting your practice, and analyzing your practice data. Practice doesn’t have to be ammo intensive – we’ll discuss which skills can be improved with dry-fire, and how to use live-fire validation to verify the results of your practice. Students will learn the difference between performance and diagnostic drills, and progress to learning how to break down and convert those drills into practice tools. This is the class that’s going to bridge the gap between your knowledge, and your performance.

 

Topics Covered

1.     Safety

2.     Fundamentals of performance shooting

3.     Setting and using metrics

4.     Effective Shot Calling

5.     Performance Tracking

6.     Validating your practice

7.     Dry fire/live fire integration

 

Required Equipment

Notebook, writing utensil

Reliable handgun

At least 3 magazines/speed loaders (more for lo-cap)

Quality holster, fitted to your firearm

At least 2 mag/speed loader pouches

300 rds reliable ammunition

A belt suitable to carry your handgun and ammunition

Eye protection (ANSI rated)

Hearing Protection

2-Day Train for Mastery

Building upon the “Practice with Purpose” [HYPERLINK to PwP details, if there is a separate page] curriculum, Train for Mastery is an extended class, designed to teach you how to practice effectively, and train towards a high-level shooting goal. In addition to all topics covered in the 1-day “Practice with Purpose” class, students will also learn about advanced movement and exercises, building their own effective drills from match data, more in-depth analysis of their practice logs, and advanced stage breakdown techniques. Fast-paced and very intensive, students should come prepared to take lots of notes, and watch their practice routines change drastically and – hopefully – for the better.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW:

Round Counts: The round counts provided are SAFE ESTIMATES. You may not shoot all of them. If you want to bring twice as many, that's up to you. If you can only afford to bring half as much, give me a heads up and we'll adjust accordingly.

 

Equipment: Please, please, PLEASE make sure you have working, proven equipment, ammunition that runs, spare batteries (if you have an optic), and a backup if you think you'll need it. Malfunctions and consistent issues hinder your ability to learn, and you'll be wasting good money on a learning experience that's punctuated by gun or ammo problems. I hate to see students lose out on knowledge and training because of equipment issues. I cannot stress enough - I want you to get the most out of any class that you can - please make sure your equipment is running, zeroed, and proven.

 

Sustainment: You can't live without water, it's probably a fact. There’s a huge mental component to shooting. Please bring enough water and food to keep you and your brain going.

Scheduling

To discuss scheduling a custom clinic you can either use our contact form, message me on Instagram or Facebook, or email me at info@timherronshooting.com!  I'll look forward to training with you!
