    I have been hearing about these deals where Glock sells a discounted models to first responders. Law enforcement, Fire department, EMT's can get the discount on a letterhead. I understand how a LEO could get the discount but how do EMT's and firemen get it being that they don't carry a gun on the job.

    Glock made a list of FIRST RESPONDERS they extended the deal to. The stipulation was never that they carry a gun on duty, it was simply a show of appreciation for being FIRST RESPONDERS.

    Glock offers it through their HEROS program. I assume it's an adjunct of the individual officer purchase program, as the guns available are earmarked with the "Blue Label" law enforcement serial numbers.

    http://shooterssupply.org/glockheroprogram.asp

    This website gives a basic overview of the program requirements. A quick google search did not offer an official Glock webpage for the program, but those are the terms of the deal. It just requires a little extra paperwork and a photo ID.

    I don't know where you can find a dealer that offers the program on the eastern end of the state. You'll just have to check with your local retailers. Not all Glock dealers have the ability to offer this discount as they are LEO pistols. You'll have to contact your retailer about what they'll individually require.

    "or College students with proof of enrollment in a Criminal Justice Program."
    I guess that helps to explain how so many college athletes can afford to buy firearms.

    I wish S&W would do something like this. They have a $50 rebate for active, retired, or disabled military, but I think they should extend a similar deal for emergency services too.

    S&W could not only make a lot more sales, but as an American company, it's a great image for publicity.

    They used to offer a 40% discount on any of the M&P line to LEO/Mil(Active or retired)

    Did they stop?

    You can take advantage of this deal at Lawmens in Raleigh. $398 for Glock or M&P or $40 more for night sights.

    The copy and pasted portion above says fire/ems so I guess your good. Good luck with getting rid of a Glock. As soon as you sell it you'll want it back.

    SC residents can go to Lawman's in Columbia, just down the road from the SCCJA for the LE Glocks.
