        1. avatar sagebrushracer says:

          with 100 points and a quarter, you can make a phone call. but 1 “aw shit” wipes out about 5000 points…..

  3. avatar Larry says:

    Like Glocks blue label program , there I get $100 off and three mags.

  4. avatar Grindstone says:

    TSA morons get preference over HD non-retired veterans? Come on, FN. You can’t be serious.

    1. avatar Lost Down South says:

      Indeed. I served, but didn’t “retire” from the service. Nothing for me. There never is. I don’t qualify for the GI Bill, Cabela’s requires an ID… It would be nice if they accepted a clean DD214.

      1. avatar Grindstone says:

        I still get a discount on my cell carrier because I’ve never updated them that I’m out. I can still get discounts at Lowes and such with my TA-180 ID. Most retail places that give mil discounts will just accept about any mil ID. I even got a discount once when I accidentally showed my CTR ID instead.

        However, anyone can qual for the Mont GI Bill if you paid into it when you initially joined up (before a certain date, can’t recall what it was). I have both the Mont GI Bill and the Post-9/11 GI Bill available. I believe the post 9/11 bill is automatic now as long as you do at least 180 days of TIS or something like that.

      2. avatar brian setliff says:

        I agree…I am a combat veteran of Afghanistan but not retired. I did my time and got a honorable discharge and work in the private sector. This is unbelievable. I guess that is the appreciation veterans get but not retired. WOW

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    Good to know that FN is so supportive of average, everyday Americans who aren’t current or former agents of the state.

    Oh, wait. . . .

    1. avatar tdiinva says:

      I am insulted that they left off those of us who served in the shadows.

    2. avatar Geoff PR says:

      As a lawyer, didn’t that make you an agent of the state? 🙂

      (Hey, I’m just happy I escaped youth without being an honor student:. “Yes, Your Honor, No, Your Honor, Nolo contendere, Your Honor…)

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Nope. Agents of the state don’t sue the state.

    3. avatar tdiinva says:

      I am insulted that we agents of the state that worked in the shadows aren’t on the list.

    4. avatar Indiana Tom says:

      All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. FN loves big brother!
      Some younger former soldier wanted to get the FN discount at the local gun store, but did not qualify as he did not have retired military ID.

  6. avatar ChrisCicc says:

    They don’t mention Civil Air Patrol and other auxiliary military services. I hope they are not excluded.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      And IRS agents. And EPA investigators. And members of the Federal Reserve Board, too.

      1. avatar Grindstone says:

        And Girl Scouts. I suppose NF would give a discount for some Thin Mints. I sure as hell would.

    2. avatar Tactical mall ninja says:

      The girl scouts would be more deserving than the civil air patrol. And I say that having been a member since the 80s. Came to my senses and left that den of idiots. Wish they would pull their ability to wear the uniform. They have ZERO reason to have access to firearms. CAP is not a military organization and in no way shape or form should they be given any privilege for service.

    3. avatar Dan A says:

      The difference between Girl/Boy Scouts and the CAP is that I’ve never had Scouts try and lie their way into a military discount.

    4. avatar 2AMexican says:

      That’s because CAP is a civilian organization. Former Earhart Cadet and 0-2 senior member.

  7. avatar LarryinTX says:

    Y’all just put the “read more” sign anywhere, now?

  8. avatar MikeyCNY says:

    I’m a Civilian First Responder, do I count?

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      I’m my own First Responder, and I don’t count for sheeeit.

  9. avatar Retired LEO says:

    They have had this for awhile, just added the holster.This is the same as Glock blue label & S&W M&P purchase. Major difference is one a year unlike a few bad apples buying glocks for $398.20 and reselling. Let TSA buy most could not pass the NICS. 4473 still has to be done. personally I’d rather carry my own weapon than some of the garbage I have seen issued. Saw a security guard at hospital today his company had issued a Hi-Point 9mm.

    1. avatar AllAmerican says:

      Good God, that poor bastard. At least it can double as a club.

    2. avatar Jeff says:

      Question any private security company that, A. Assigned a security officer to a hospital with a firearm. B. a security guard carrying a hi-point as a company issued weapon. I work contract security in Michigan where only endorsed license IE. A LEO can carry in a hospital. Tasers and pepper spray. And thats usually only private security.

      1. avatar Retired LEO says:

        CCW holders are prohibited from carrying in a medical facility in SC. Private contract security is permitted. They have gone so nuts they have valet parking. Crappy medical care but valets & 8 hour firearms training. Armed security is not allowed to carry any other firearm other than issued by company. They changed from a local security to a private firm owned by the parent stockholders on the 1st. So effectively they have limited state monitoring. SC has some unusual regs. regarding private security, some companies that have armed only issue revolvers, calibers are specified, qualifications are done by your employer, size of oc is regulated if allowed

        . I can’t do private security because I hold a police comission, NC allows off duty cops too work if the department permits it.

  10. avatar Chris Lynch says:

    so uhhhh, TL;DR- (actually i did read) pricing? what kind of discount are we talking? I’m on a (VERY short) waiting list for two G43’s that I got at a hilariously low price compared to MSRP, will this come close to Glock’s Blue Label?

    1. avatar Tile floor says:

      I’m number 204 on the list at my lgs… But the price is so low I don’t even care

      And I bought a ruger lcr .357 in the interim. Really really pleased with it

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        How’s the recoil with full-on .357s?

  11. avatar Chip Bennett says:

    Some animals are more equal than others.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      If you aren’t one of the more equal animals per that list, you aren’t trying.

      Just go put in a few hours a week as a volly firefighter.

      1. avatar Chip Bennett says:

        I prefer equal protection under the law. I have no problem with a business doing a promotion to entice their desired demographics (as that is their right to do so – like ladies’ nights at bars), but all “LEO exemptions” in any law need to be stricken as unconstitutional.

        1. avatar Ted Unlis says:

          Why am I not surprised? What about a 50% discount at restaurants that like and appreciate the PoPo? Does that make you break out in ButtHurt Chip?

        2. avatar int19h says:

          Are you capable of reading, Ted? He said, “all “LEO exemptions” in any law“. When a restaurant or other private business gives a discount to someone, it’s up to them. But the law should be the same for all of us.

        3. avatar SwampDaddy says:

          Ted, adjust the vacuum on your copsucker, your selfworth will appreciate it..

      2. avatar Dave says:

        Please don’t diminish the time commitment volunteer firefighters put into serving the community. It is not something everyone is called to do, and should not be undertaken lightly. If a person becomes a firefighter for a discount or a t shirt they shouldn’t be doing it at all. My brothers would never expect a discount, and would certainly never ask for one, that being said, I am grateful companies extend this to firefighters.

  12. avatar Defens says:

    I believe the program is also open for non-LEO NRA instructors. I bought a FNP-9 a couple of years ago through the program. Several other companies have similar programs for LEO and various instructors. I’m close to pulling the trigger on a SIG through their program. Ruger and Beretta also give discounts to NRA instructors.

    1. avatar Retired LEO says:

      Go for Sigs used Berettas are plentiful @ reasonable prices. Even used 229 & 226 are expensive. Although CDNN did have a good price on 226 DAK.

  13. avatar Troybilt says:

    They never include the snow plow driver!!!

  14. avatar Ted Unlis says:

    A comment earlier mentioned a few bad apple LEO’s purchasing firearms at a discounted price and reselling at retail for a profit. The ATF views such a purchase as a straw buyer transaction which is a federal felony, and just like the former SO Captain in Ohio recently convicted for falsifying ATF documents to buy a machine gun, any United States Attorney Office won’t flinch or hesitate to prosecute a LEO who falsifies documents for purchase of a firearm under the guise of official use, or a LEO who falsifies the ATF form 4473 actual buyer declaration. Unfortunately, and thankfully rarely, there are instances in law enforcement where greed and dumbass intersect, but any LEO willing to risk a felony conviction, loss of career, and loss of the right to own or possess a firearm just to make a few bucks in a straw purchase transaction deserves the consequences of felony stupidity.

    1. avatar Indiana Tom says:

      Unfortunately, and usually, there are instances in law enforcement where greed and dumbass intersect,

    2. avatar GunFanatic says:

      Probably should verify your information before typing it up. With regards to purchasing the firearms with the intent to sell is not a straw purchase as you describe. In the United States, a straw purchaser of a firearm at a federally licensed firearm dealership who lies about the identity of the ultimate possessor of the gun can be charged with making false statements on a federal Firearms Transaction Record. If a firearm is purchased as a gift, the transaction is not a straw purchase, and the person buying the gift is considered the end user. The buyer is also considered the end user if he intends to sell the firearm, as long as the initial purchase is not made at the direction of or as part of an agreement with the second, ultimate buyer. Straw purchases in lawful sales made outside of federally regulated dealerships are not subject to such rules and are legal unless the gun is used in a crime with the prior knowledge of the straw purchaser.[2]

  15. avatar Ted Unlis says:

    Looks like the LE price for the FNH FNS 9 or 40 with night sights and 3 mags is $462.00.

  16. avatar Excedrine says:

    Except that Joe and Jane Citizen are in fact the real “first responders”, not the cops, or the military, or security guards.

    Seriously, what in the EXPLETIVE DELETED is up with all these EXPLETIVE DELETED carve-outs for agents of the State!?

  17. avatar Sexual Tyrannosaurus says:

    Judges and DA’s get the JBT discount, but not defense attorneys? FN favors the government side of the law.

    FN: EXPLETIVE DELETED, nobodies.

  18. avatar TwinReverb says:

    But only one. I can buy as many Glocks as I want with discount, which is far steeper.

    1. avatar Ted Unlis says:

      You’re mistaken, LE price for a Glock Gen 4 with standard sights and 3 mags is $398.20, add another $55.00 for Glock night sights or $72.00 for Trijicon night sights, so $453.20 or $470.20, or about the same price as the FNH. You’re also misinformed about buying as many Glocks as you want, the Glock Blue Label Program has a 2 per year restriction.

  19. avatar Sixpack70 says:

    What’s the price on the SCAR 17s, SLP and 5.7 pistol I wonder? I have a LGS that has certain FN products as MIL/LE only pricing and I took advantage of it and got a PS90 for $900, rather than the $1300 I see everywhere else. I traded three guns I was not happy with and only had to pay the sales tax to walk out with it. It was well worth the trade as I really like that little rifle. A 5.7 pistol would go well with my PS90.

  20. avatar Anonymous says:

    This frustrates me, Glock has a similar list of folks who get a discount…why EMT’s and not Physicians, PA’s, nurses, ETC…?!

  21. avatar Dustin says:

    Ah, a list of people that FN thinks are better than me… I’ve got a list of gun companies who make lists like this…

  22. avatar Retired LEO says:

    Perhaps its because EMT-, I, & B. Don’t ask if I own any firearms are any I have locked around children and check off a box on my medical records. Luckily my Doc is a shooting buddy & agrees it is stupid.
    Why is everyone complaining about FN & not Glock, Sig, Smith or Colt who have similar programs

  23. avatar Will P. says:

    From the looks of the comments I’ll prob catch some flack for this. But exactly how much of a discount is it? I would love to get a FN, but I need to know how many pennies I need to save up. I tried to get a blue box Glock a couple years ago, but many of the dealers around here all but stopped carrying them because of some public safety members taking advantage of them, reselling and making profit.

    1. avatar Retired LEO says:

      Check with a police supply FN dealer they usually have a copy of the order
      form/price list. Cdnn did have it posted on the sale page. FYI I

      1. avatar Retired LEO says:

        Check with a local FN dealer they can get the order form with prices. For Glock you can join the GSSF after 2 years or a life membership you can get blue labels, usually at cop prices depending on dealer. I bought a Sig for the wife @ LE price for her birthday & g35 for my son until he won a few matches worst I have done still have them & not for sale or trade. I’m a 5th gen cop even retired I’m a victims advocate & Director of Disaster and Emergency Services for a small town. I am not eligible except as retired for anyone other than Sig. I still purchase just not as many. I was put on this earth to help those I can. When I worked patrol I got java from 7/11 in a refill mug, don’t take discounts not available too all. I look at it as bribery even if its just a soda. Sorry just how I was raised. I know I’ll get flamed but the cops that get discounts seem to expect it had off duty out of state LEO’s badge me when I was helping a buddy with his store & demand discounts because they protect me. Stopped when I took out the same thing and asked if I would get a discount at their 2nd job always a no answer. Usually asked why I would expect a deal.

        Sorry for the odd post the Lynette Beaumont viagara commercial came on hit wrong button on the tablet. Don’t need it but got a thing for blondes with British accents, sue me I’m straight & married caucasian male with kids so, minority that doesn’t have sex (lol);-).

  24. avatar Brad says:

    It seems that every law enforcement dealer I have called and asked for their IOP price for a five-seven handgun differs greatly. The lowest I have been told was $1150 but they said its been a year since they last had one in stock. I have heard some people say they can buy one new without the discount for $950. Also someone in the army said they can get a brand new one for $800 with a military discount. What is the best price anyone has seen for the 5.7 handgun?
