    every one needs to get off my back and contact smith and wesson.
    I just wonder what R. Lee Ermey would think of all your whining about you not getting a discount. maybe you should call and ask him i think he works for Glock now

Are you really starting to give your self a bad name. All of the points you are trying to make are falling on deaf ears. At no time has any Emt or fire fighter on this forum said they have every right to a discount and should get one.None have asked for such a thing. The only one crying about not getting a discount when they think they should is you. You get paided to teach people. Emts/Vol fire get nothing for putting their lives on the line everyday so that others may live. This is buds way of saying thanks for doing what you do. With all of your said back ground you would think you would be alittle more grown up.
    I dont know ........maybe you are reading every other post on here.

    but still.........where does it say on the smith and wesson website, you can check and you will not find it. where does it say emt and fire fighters are part of the leo/military discount?

    it doesn't. buds violate tweaked addlibbed smith and wesson policy and then lied to me saying emt's/etc are under smith and wesson's policy........

    so in a nut shell...........some one is saying that emt's deserve it!

    and heres one thing i would like to clear up.............not every single day does a emt vounteer put there life in dange....quit playing that stupid card!

    but still................MY WHOLE POINT IS>>>>>>>>>>>>> HOW DOES EMT FALL UNDER LAW ENFORCEMENT DISCOUNTS?
    it does'nt they list one icon for their discount page and it happens to be titled law enforcement which would be their largest group of discounted buyers. when you click on it you get all the others who they also are willing to extend the same offer to. instead of having 10 to 15 different icons for the same discount.

    Since when does emt go to blet or the police academy?

    and still........i am getting tired of saying it......you guys keep blocking it out.....Smith and wesson told me they do not give discounts to emt.........they told me this personally...........however buds is saying that smith and wesson put emt on the list........... and smith did no such thing

    are we finally understanding?

    I'd listen to R. Lee Ermey and buy a "Glock" As I said earlier, if you're not getting what you want from the S &W Policy or the "Bud's Gun Shop" policy, then go buy another brand of gun and buy it from someone else. Store owners are given guidelines by the manufacturers as to who they're able to give discounts to and what the minimum sale price for a gun can be. If they choose to offer a discount to a specific group then so be it. If you're not part of that group and want the discount, then go figure a way to become a member of the group.

    On a side note, I just got the NRA Instructor news mailer today. They have SUBSTANTIAL discounts on "AimPoint", "Crimson Trace" and "Black Hawk" gear for NRA Certified Instructors. These discounts are only offered to NRA Certified Instructors, not LEO, Military, EMT, Fire Fighters, etc. Don't hear them complaining do ya? If you like the stuff produced by any of the companies that I mentioned, then go buy the stuff, take advantage of the "excellent" discount, buy your S&W firearm from some other retailer and call it even.

    Calling someone a "moron" on an open forum is very unbecoming of a NRA Instructor and I believe against the rules of this forum.

    Now go spend some money and stimulate our economy!

    I do get paid for it. quite well actually and i enjoy helping my fellow man or women so much that i volunteer in the county in which i live being that they trained me to be what i am and sponsored me through all the schools so i could land such a sweet job that allows me to have 20 to 21 days a month off to either work additional jobs, go hunting and fishing, spend time with my wife and children, pay for my shooting habits and my toys that i purchased without a discount with the exception of one.

    regular emt's dude! quit trying to justify the medcal field.


    regular emt's and volunteer fire fighters are the topic.........and besides what do you call a corpsman that is seal qualified? how about a seal...............just elaborating on your swat medic who would fall under the leo discount anyways.

    talking about the mossy oak volunteer dog box in the back of the truck in the middle of the woods in easter nc emt's ......putting there lives in danger every day by mudbogging........... and getting a discount
