Welcome to Tim's Shooting Academy of Westfield, Hamilton County's premier indoor target range and gun store!
We're excited to bring our passion for the sport of shooting to the area with a top-notch program focused on safety and education. Founded in 2013, the Academy has been created by Tim & Faith Tomich, who are themselves longtime Westfield residents. Whether you're an old hand or a true beginner, we hope you'll join us furthering your own skills and knowledge at our state-of-the-art facility.
I've been a gun enthusiast for over 40 years. Other than my family, firearms and hunting are my passions. I learned how to hunt when I was 12 years old and have been hunting and collecting guns ever since. So many guns in my personal collection hold great memories for me. One of my greatest possessions is my Father's engraved Ithaca model 37 which I had completely refinished. It is one of the first 16 gauges produced in this country. These firearms are part of the legacy I'm leaving to my children.
I've taken numerous safety courses in regards to firearms. This is why our range will be "Focused on Safety and Education." I was taught properly, and I taught my wife, son and daughter the proper use of firearms. There is a great respect, but not fear, for guns in our household. My wife Faith and daughter Katie are very excited about our focus on reaching out to, and teaching, the women in our community. They feel it's exciting and liberating for women to learn how to properly use firearms.
I'm a student of the history of firearms and a researcher of the various ballistic capabilities of ammunition. I only wish to provide upper-end firearms, scopes, optics, and ancillary accessories at our range. You won't find Saturday-night specials in our range. "Safety and Education" is our goal. I can't wait to meet you and help you further your shooting experience.
