Tom Marx Casting a Critical Eye on Weapons Technology and Training
with Tom Marx

Tom Marx left the Chicago Police Department in 1988 to become one of three instructors at the Smith & Wesson Academy in Springfield, Massachusetts. After several years of teaching full time both nationally and internationally, he shifted roles at Smith: first to a series of technical positions and then as Head of their Domestic Law Enforcement Operations. He left S&W to organize a Law Enforcement Division for Michaels of Oregon as well as to help design and market much of their police-related duty gear. Leaving Uncle Mike’s, Tom became the Director of Intellectual Property for BLACKHAWK Products Group in Virginia; focusing on the patent efforts for all of their divisions. Today, he is privately employed as a consultant in various firearms, accessory and training matters. Throughout his tenure at Uncle Mike's, BLACKHAWK, and now as a consultant, Tom has continued to lecture and instruct both inside and outside the US with such diverse groups as ILEETA, IALEFI, WIFLE, LETC, NDIA, the NRA, and Team One Network.
