Dave Thomas Concealed Carry Instructor

Dave Thomas Founder & Lead Instructor IFT

His passion for firearms began when at five-years-old his grandfather took him out shooting with a .22 long rifle and a German .32 Cal pistol from his time in WWII.

Since becoming instantly hooked, he has continued his firearm education throughout his life. He would train with friends from various police departments from Chicago and the Western Suburbs. In the fall of 2003, Dave enrolled in the Police Academy planning to utilize his skills to the betterment of the community, but due to a severe car accident was unable to finnish. Rather than becoming deterred, Dave continued to train with multiple police departments, SWAT teams, and the counter terrorism team in IL.

In addition, Dave attended many professional courses to help him expand his knowledge of firearms. In 2013, he became an NRA instructor and started working as an armed security officer. In 2016, he became a USCCA instructor. In February 2018, Dave was credited for saving two people from being stabbed to death in the suburbs of Chicago. This incident is an example of a personal experience Dave shares with all his students because everything was done appropriately.

Although carrying a firearm is an enormous commitment, Dave uses his knowledge and real-life experiences to help you understand everything you need to know to safely and responsibly carry your firearms in the state of IL.
