    Why no Glocks in the LEO/Mil/First Responder Program?

    • Geoff says:

      They were a S&W and Springfield Dealer for a long time. They only recently got into Cary other. Rands. That might have something to do with it.

      • Lucky says:

        They are local to me, and came highly recommended, however, I am in the market for a Glock, having carried one in the past. S&W and Sig are nice, but Glock is better… Any suggestions for DC area places that sell Glocks?

        • Matt says:

          Practically any of them. VA Arms in Manassas, Sharpshooters in Springfield, All Shooters Tactical in Woodbridge, Dawsons in Woodbridge etc. They all carry Glocks, assuming their not sold out. VA Arms is definitely my favorite.

        • Geoff says:

          Yeah there are a ton of blue label places in northern VA. If you email flick they will give you a list. Several are in the Woodbridge area.

    • Vince says:

      They used to sell Glocks. Some idiot at their Camp Pendleton/Oceanside store screwed it up by selling them to whoever and jacking up the FFL paperwork. Too bad they pulled up stakes in California. No support for west coast guys. I don’t have a well stocked shop to walk into anymore. Still miss Grumpy though.
