    dude! no one doubts that regular emt's do not work hard.

    all i am trying to say is..........they are not part of law enforcement so they should not be included in the law enforcement discounts.
    having a seperate discount i think would be fine. but if they are not police officers then they are not police officers! why is this so hard to understand?
    you are the one that keeps giving your salty war stories.

    I tried to end this several days ago. now maybe we should move into a new direction. Emts should get a discount but not under military or law enforcement.

    Gunther,
    Why do you think a consultant (the instructor) should get a discount for doing what he's paid to do? Mechanics don't typically get a discount on wrenches, nor do the EMT types get discounts on their tools. It's not about who needs the tool, it's about Bud's extending the LE & Military discount to other people whose service THEY choose to recognize.

    Start teaching Pistol classes ProBono and maybe they'll decide to cut their profit for you, too.

    Gunther, you avoid the point of many of these posts just so you can continue whining.
    If Bud's wants to open a S&W (or other) discount to the local groundskeepers because they like the way the bushes are edged, that's Bud's perogative, and that discount comes out of BUD'S profit. If the matter of who needs a gun for work were the real issue, my take is simple. An instructor does NOT need a pistol to teach, but the students need a pistol to learn. Maybe YOU should be giving out gift cards for your students.

    you should contact buds and ask them to change the icon to " people in which we choose to offer discounts too" and leave the affilaition with law enforcement alone. there is no affiliation other than both professions fall under public safety/first responders. it's cheaper for anyone to pay full price then it is to go out of your way to fall under one of their discount recipients categories.
    We would be better off with BORAT as PRESIDENT!!!!

    one may argue that all legal valid concealed permit holders should get the discount.

    I always thought that "military contractors" being that they have an ID card issued by the military would be entitled to ge the discount. I know two civilian armed security officers got the S&W discount from Bud's. They tried to convince me to purchase a M&P and told me about the discount that Bud's offers. They fax'd a copy of their military ID card and a letter from their supervisor stating that they were assigned to the military base, and got the discount. I checked with a couple of other manufacturers and found that their discount program was better than S&W, so opted to take advantage of their offers instead.

    volunteer emt are considered civillians.

    i have given up on buds!

    why won't you admit emt volunteers are not considered military?

  11. You used two different questions. The profession that NEEDS the gun for their profession would be the EMT/FIREFIGHTER. Being both of those I am a little biased however we put our lives in great danger and a lot of the time we don't know what we're getting into when we respond to a call.

    The NRA instructor will probably USE the gun more for his or her profession but I also think they should get discounts on gun purchases as well.
