Myths, Movies and Misinformation - Presented by Tom Marx

Gun and holster ads might look exciting, but successfully selecting a holster for concealed carry takes more than just a whim. Too many people see an advertisement, a film character or a friend wearing a holster or carrying a gun and think that same thing(s) will work for them too.

In the hour we have, we’ll not only look at mistakes we all make (and ways of preventing them) but also at some fact-based methods and approaches to making such decisions and purchases. Activities, body types, physical condition, types of dress, and external conditions will be considered and reviewed. Detailed checklists will be presented and the attendees are welcome to photograph/copy them for future use and reference.

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.
