Glock First Responders Discount


Has anyone heard that Glock offers a discount for EMT personnel now? It's the same discount as if you were a peace officer, let me know if you've heard anything.

Have you called them and asked? I wonder how that would work. Special factory order or something?

I was going to go pick up a Glock 17 today but got too busy at work.

(no, I don't carry on duty, but I have a whole stack of hard drives that need bullet holes.)

WOAH. I Googled a bit and found prices:

G17,19,26 $398.20
G22,23,27 $398.20
G31,32,33 $398.20
G21,30,36 $464.20
G20,29 $464.20
G34,35 $480.70
G37 $414.70

But you have to get in touch with a dealer that deals with law enforcement. People say "Call Glock at (770) 432-1202 and get a list of OFFICIAL "Glock Law Enforcement Dealers" in your state."

I'm going to do this tomorrow. That price on the Glock 17 is almost $200 cheaper than what the local dealer has on the sticker.

I have a Glock 22 already (40 S&W) but something in 9mm would be nice too. 9mm ammo is dirt cheap these days.

I read on a glocktalk forum and they said that its not called the LE discount anymore, its called First Responders Program and that it extends the discount to EMT/firefighters/police/military/pilots, but you need to go to a state LE dealer, i was just curious if anyone had experience with this
