|Shooting Discipline:||Steel Challenge|
Tom began shooting later in life, after being exposed to it through a friend in 2012. Soon after, he purchased his first pistol and became involved with IDPA, shooting in Tennessee and Alabama. After an injury, he made the transition to Steel Challenge where he started competing in Alabama. Later he began seeking clubs around Chattanooga that would be interested in Steel Challenge Competitions and found the new Dead Zero Shooting Park. Tom now runs the successful and steadily growing Steel Challenge Matches at the Dead Zero Shooting Park.
