    I've done some digging around on this forum and elsewhere and can't seem to find an answer to my question.

    Simply put, do either a Washington Unarmed Private Security card or Oregon DPSST Unarmed Professional card qualify me for the LEO/Fire/Security/EMS discount?

    For bonus points, if it does, does anyone know a shop in SW Washington who are familiar with and participate in the deal?

    I was told that there is some Glock shooting group or something similar that qualifies you for LE discounts. I know that's really vague but I do know there is something out there. Maybe someone else can help you more.

    It's called the Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF)

    IIRC members qualify for a once a year purchase of any Glock at LE pricing.

    Well, that's great, but I've already got the security officer certifications, so I'm still hoping to find out if they'll cover me without having to pay for a membership to GSSF. Thanks for the info, though. Good to know.

    I bet Glock knows who qualifies, they would probably tell you if you called.

    Yeah, that's probably my best bet. I figured they were closed on the weekend, though, so thought I'd ask here while I waited. In any case, I'll let you all know what they end up telling me.

    Well, I went into Brightwater Ventures yesterday and asked about this, and Nick says basically there's only one distributor in WA that does the discount, and they just happen to be a law enforcement only business.

    I cannot answer your question, but call the Glock Authorized Dealer, closest to you, from the attached list.

    I bought two from the one in Seattle. I'm not LE, but am retired Navy.
