    The trick that both Sig and Glock have effectively followed is the price of their guns they quote to these organizations is far lower than retail, wholesale and distributor pricing. The idea is to get these guns in the hands of cops, etc. to use as PR to regular citizens-but make no mistake on the super special pricing. And yes our police forces across the country are being militarized–been going on for last 20 years big time through grants.

    Police departments are starting or are looking a lot like gestapo units of WW ll. Military gear, weapons, armored vehicles, etc. only to be used against the citizenry as I’ve never heard of the being shipped off to a foreign country to fight. Really scary.

    Gestapo does come to mind. How often do they expect to get into medium/long range fire fights with large scale criminal forces.
