Tom started shooting competitively in 2011 when he moved to Oregon. He joined a gun club that he started competitive pistol (IDPA) shooting. Then in 2015 he was invited to shoot a 1,000 yard F-Class match. That is when he fell in love with long range F-T/R shooting and bought his first Savage Model 12 F-T/R chambered in .308. In 2015, with his trusted Savage, he entered and won his first two day Palma (800, 900, and 1,000 yard) match. Since that time Tom has achieved 19 first place and 14 second place state and regional championships.
