    i have seen and heard and read several different places that glock dealers some anyways give a nice discount to military and police officers. is this true? i have read that you can get a 19 with three mags for $399 and with ns for around $480. i am not much of a glock guy i had one and got rid of it but for that price you can't go wrong. any info would be much appreciated. thanks. in particular anywhere in georgia that does this since that is where i am gonna be stationed, and that is where i will have to buy it from. thanks again!

    I have yet to ever come into a gunshop(Glock Authorized or otherwise) that offers any discount to military. Believe me, I've tried in every one of these places. They act disgusted that I'd ask such a question. They always do have "law enforcement" discounts though.

    This was in Central and Southern Florida and Upstate New York. Georgia may be different.

    i just spent almost 30 minutes reading a thread from glocktalk that confirms the fact, i just need to find a place that does it in georgia. reading on there states that some dealers don't want to fess up to giving the discount but a quick call to glock will fix that they say.

    Really? That's a manufacturers policy? That's good to hear. I'm not much of a fan of Glocks either but a manufacturer that actually supports the troops at least deserves my time. Are there any other manufacturers that do this? Or is Glock the only one. Can you link the thread because I really want to know more about this.

    Which branch are you in anyhow? I'm in the U.S. Army Reserve.

    Correct, it is Glock factory policy to extend the LE price to military.

    I'm pretty sure it has to be a law enforcment distributer to get the discount, not just your average gun shop. Call Glock and ask them for the nearest one, thats what I did.

    Revolving Cylinder: I believe Sig has a policy similar to this. You just need to send them a copy of your mil ID. Contact Sig and ask. Or try www.sigforum.com

    Dury's Guns in San Antonio give a discount to military - and the best customer service in the city.

    correct, it does have to be a law enforcement dealer distributor or whatever!

    yeah that is pretty cool incentive my smith just went through the s&w m&p armorer school and he can get one at cost, that's pretty darn sweet if you ask me.

    JDGRAY, thanks for the link that is awesome, it looks like there are alot of people that are able to benifit from the discount. that is exactly what i was looking for thanks again!

    I never really understood the military discount but I can see the LE discount. I thought the discount was in place for LE because they carry their guns but they don't carry sidearms like that in the military.

    Some shops do it, not every shop does. Some of those shops will even extend that program to security and private investigators. I could see security but not really PI's because not too many PI's actually carry guns.

    That is correct at least at the gun shop I purchased my G20 at. Diamondback police dept on Kolb/Broadway in Tucson offers that to LEO and Military and might even do it for Border Patrol (attn Skunky).

    My G20 was $498 out the door last year. Haven't seen the current prices but I'm stopping by there today to shop for an XD-45 holster and will see if they give me a copy.

    Question: are they pretty strict about who they give the military discount to?

    Do they give out to just retired/active personnel or do they also give the discount to reservists/NG's?

    Dunno, I'll ask my shop and see. Other shops may vary. Doesn't hurt to ask.

    Do not go to the shop.

    This is how it works. Call Glock directly. Tell them what you want and that you are active military. You send them proof of active status along with payment for the weapon.

    You then tell them what FFL dealer you want the gun sent to. The shop will treat it just like any other transfer or out of state purchase.

    Last time I looked a G19 with 3 mags and nights was around $450.

    Most manufacturers have similar programs. Sig does. You can get a P229 in 9mm/40/.357 Sig with 3 mags night sights & a $50 coupon to the Sig Store or 2 additional mags for $650 or so. I can't remember the exact figure. Add that up and a P229 with 5 factory Mags and Night Sights is a great deal.

    Call and aske the manufacturers directly. You do not need to involve the shop except for the transfer. Also if you do it this way you also avoid sales tax. :)

    A NG or reserve ID is identical to an active duty one.

    yes they are, which only sucks when i am trying to register my car or motorcycle, they now have to have an LES to ensure that you are active duty. not a big deal that I know now but i was pissed when i went all the way to the tag place on my lunch had to go all the way back home and then to the tag office again! ahhhh!:banghead:

    Sig has this policy too? I wish Smith & Wesson had such a policy as I'm a big fan of their(and Walther's) products. I'm gonna have to look into this.

    The link that JDGray provided says that they will give the discount to reservists too. And contracted security personel. That is a pretty good damn deal. Think I am gonna have to jump on it.

    Cheaper Than Dirt has GREAT discounts for military and police at their Fort Worth store. How about $410-ish for a NIB XD? They also have Glocks in the military/police discount case at serious discounts. Whether this is set up by the manufacturers or the store owner I don't know, but it corroborates what you heard.

    Good thread, and GREAT info about Sig - news to me.

    I saw the Glock deal at a local shop in SLC prior to deploying, not a bad deal at all, IIRC the pricetag on a 19 was $398 before tax, etc. which jives w/the above link. Good to know, as I really liked that shop.

    Outdoor America in Oklahoma City does it, through them, for LE, active military, retired military... etc. No extra hassles, no extra wait, and the price for any Glock with fixed (not night) sights and three magazines is under $400. Whether it's a 17, 20, 33, whatever... if it's a US-legal Glock, it's all the same. :)

    If you want night-sights, they install Mepros while you wait, and the additional cost of sights + installation is about $485.

    Apparently, they also throw in a free box of ammo (nothing special, but not junk... think PMC FMJ or similar) with every Glock. Just have to remind 'em occassionally. ;)

    Any Glock authorized dealt can provide milt disc

    I have purchased 2 and just ordered a third at a price of $409 for each, not sure if there is a limit but I buy 1 a year, 19s and 23, looking forward to my new 19 4th gen. I have Kimber ultra carry II 45, Beretta Cheetah 380, Tarus 9mm, semi autos and I enjoy shooting the Glock more than any. Actually I enjoy shooting my S&W 38 combat special ( my fathers side arm as a pilot ) the most but the Glock is so forgiving and even though cleaning a weapon is as important as shooting one, if I do not want to I do not have to, not so with the Kimber 45 or Cheetah they will let you know quick if you do not take care of them. All that said these special offers to LE and military both active and retired is controlled to a special set of serial numbers, sometime they are on hand but usually they need to be ordered. I live in Az so it may be a little different where laws are not as liberal as they are in Az.
