    They risk their life on a daily basis to save lives, for no more than a often too low wage, long hours, work under conditions that you would be hiding in your home from, messes to clean up that often give them nightmares, discount hell yes give them one and then thank them when they leave!!!

    Stumpjumper really misses the point of the poll. I voted for CCW Instructor because an instructor can't do the job without a firearm. My vote was not about which job required the most training.

    no i do not miss the point, i didnt start the poll, the poll is off topic, thats what this guy kept doing was change the subject, first it went from being upset fire and ems get discounts, yes we do and im sorry his profession doesnt im all for it, then it went to hows fire and ems law enforcement, its not never said it was, once it was established he would have no arguement if the icon said people who qualify for discounts instead of law enforcement. he put a poll on it who needs it more ( poll off topic!!!). i didnt, and in a moment of not thinking i voted for myself who wouldnt, i would take it back if i could. oh well. my point was how dare someone look down at our profession like we dont qualify for anything, we bust ours to save yours with little or nothing in return. and we dont ask for discounts people just give them to us. we see things that we will never get those images out of our heads. i and about 20 members of my department went to assisted in a search of a downed aircraft 100 miles from our hometown we helped find the aircraft then removed the charred bodies of one of our members and close friends his child another female and her daughter from the airplane and then saw them to the coroner. not because we had to because we wanted to. he was our friend and we wanted him and his family and friends onboard that aircraft treated with respect. no one but another firefighter/medic will ever understand our dedication for our felow man. be they strangers or close friends
    We would be better off with BORAT as PRESIDENT!!!!

    This whole thread is screwed up and make no sense. The poll was absolutely stupid, almost like saying which needs a car more, a race car driver or a housewife and the OP is complaining about ladies day at the carwash where only females get discounts.

    For the record, I've managed to teach classes without using any of my firearms.

    Students are given hands on training on how to load, unload, fire and clear both a revolver and semi-auto. In some cases we have both single and double action revolvers.

    Notice the statement, I said "....without using any of my firearms." I've taught classes in 3 different states, and in every case in compliance within NRA guidelines using my NRA lesson plans.

    If you work well with other instructors, it's not necessary to dirty your guns all the time.

    How ever, i noticed how some companys give them discounts under military and law enforcement.
    I think those jobs emt/fire fighters deserve discounts. but there are other jobs that should receive them too.

    So i wanted to make a poll and send it to the manufacturers so they will open up the discounts to other related jobs with pistols.

    so please vote fairly so we can get more jobs that use firearms everyday a discount as well,
    here are 2 simple questions

    Question. who uses a pistol more for his/her profession?

    1.a basic emt (non/police or military) or a volunteer firemen

    2.a nra pistol instructor who teaches a class every week/ any state concealed pistoo inst.


    thanks guys and gals. lets get those discounts too all who deserve not just a few

    vote away!

    First show me a town that has Less than 500 people there arent many, next does someone in that town have less of a heart attack than someone in a bigger town. the medic in a smaller town often is just as sharp if not sharper on his skills than the bigger city boys cause they have to transport their patients farther and keep thenm stable longer than the places who have a hospital on every corner. does their house burn slower or at a lower temperature than someone in a larger town. oh my disagrement was never who needed a firearm more for their profession, us medic/firefighters dont. mine was you thinking that we are useless mudboggers who dont do anything that your profession should be at the top of the list which has been edited out of your posts. the poll is pointless and off the topic were were having, just give it a rest.
    We would be better off with BORAT as PRESIDENT!!!!

    Not to mention the oddity that many of the folks voting in the poll have "0" posts. Things that make you go "hmmmmm".....

    nice trap post.

    some states do not recognize the nra class for a qualification by the way. i know nc does not.
