Daylong Carry - Presented by Tom Marx

Your environment, your activities and the weather you’re in, may change many times throughout the day but does your method for carrying a firearm concealed accommodate such differences?

In the course of an hour, we’ll look at guns, holsters, carrying devices, and concepts that might meet some of your needs in 24 hours, while perhaps failing miserably in dealing with others. From how you get to and from work, to how you carry at work, to how you eat and entertain, to how you shop, travel, vacation, and simply interact with others, we’ll look at the bigger and more all-encompassing picture that’s often missed when one thinks of carrying concealed. Selecting the right tool for the right job is important, but if the task transforms or the situation changes, your equipment must often accept its new role as you adjust to things yourself.

About Tom Marx

Tom Marx was a patrolman and a field training officer with the Chicago Police Department when he was asked to become a firearms instructor for the then law enforcement and military-only Smith & Wesson Academy. It was there he first created several programs dealing with the carrying of guns concealed and the teaching methods needed to best convey those concepts.
