Tom Marx shares decades of experience at NRA Convention in Houston

Law Enforcement firearm and training consultant Tom Marx Indianapolis, Indiana - Odds are that you've heard the phrase "those who can't do, teach."

While that may hold true for those hoping to find stardom through the NFL Draft or Carnegie Hall, that's not what you're looking for when it comes to taking your first step in the world of concealed carry. That's when you need to find an expert. An expert like Tom Marx.

What makes him an expert? Here are his creds:

  • Chicago Police Department
  • Smith & Wesson Academy Instructor
  • Head of Smith & Wesson Domestic Law Enforcement Operations
  • Director of Intellectual Property for BLACKHAWK
  • Consultant for ILEETA, IALEFI, WIFLE, LETC, NDIA, the NRA, and Team One Network.

So yea, Marx knows a thing or two about a concealed carry thing or two.

When it comes to vehicular carry (personal car or public transportation), for example, can you appreciate the value of an ankle holster? Are you wearing clothing that makes it easy to draw? Will your setup work while you're wearing a seat belt?

Bet at least one of those issues never crossed your mind when considering vehicular carry — and we haven't even scratched the surface.

Carrying in the workplace, in a restaurant, at the shopping mall are all part of Marx's program. Part of what makes said program so unbelievably popular.

"It is the most popular Annual Meeting event that Ted Nugent isn't headlining," said NRA Law Enforcement Director Glen Hoyer. "Even though it's a four-hour seminar, I guarantee you that it will be standing room only."

Intended for both law enforcement and civilians, Marx's Conceal Carry program doesn't just discuss guns, ammo and holsters. Instead, he goes into detail about clothing, carrying environments, and physical conditioning in a building block-like approach so those who cannot make the full program can go home with the ability to put their lessons to use in their everyday lives.

If this sounds like a great way to spend the afternoon, then get to rooms 237-239 at the Conventional Center around 1:00pm on Friday or at 2:00pm on Saturday. You'll be amazed and what you can pick up in a few simple hours.
