    Question Blue Tag Glocks and other Firearms


    G23SNT+ and myself went to Caliber's indoor range here in Albuquerque last week. He had told me they have LE and Military discounts on some of their guns, so I went out hunting me a Glock 20. They didn't have any in stock, but said they could get one for me at 569.00, then the guy said he could actually get a Blue Tag Glock 20 for 539.00. I asked what Blue Tag meant and he said they are guns available at discounts to LE and Military. In 34 years I've never seen or heard of this. I was just curious if anybody out there was familiar with "Blue Tag" guns. What makes a gun "Blue Tag"? Why not just sell anything at a discount, if the manufacturers allow it. Maybe I'm just over thinking here, and I'll surely be getting the Glock 20 for 539.00 in the near future, I just was hoping on some better clarification in the matter.

    The blue tag is something that Glock themselves do not the store. It is offered to numerous professions. LE, military, some EMS and what not. I will try to find who all is eligible and post it up in a minute.

    all the above for original purchase yes.

    i've got 2 le trade-ins, 22/kvx/glock ns/$429, 23/kcf/trijicon ns/$418 and both have blue tag on box.

    i called glock and by s/n they told me the agency both were purchased for.

    i'll bet they'll get you an le trade-in and charge you a retail price.

    I have actually had trouble getting my local shop to recognise the GSSF discount. So much in fact that I just gave up on it. Since all I have to do is take out my ID it wasn't worth the trouble anymore.

    Thanks sfguard, that cleared it up for me. I also noticed, at least what I remember, they had several other brands as Blue Labels as well. Maybe more companies are following Glock in this aspect, as well as trying to be Glocks, HAHA. They had 9mm and .40 cal Glocks for 449.00. That's cheaper than I paid for my 23 over 7 years ago. I may ask about the Blue Label for GSSF members when I purchase my 20, maybe get more discounts for non LE and Military folks.

    Yeah there are others that do it. I know Sig does but I am not sure on who else.

    i agree. not only that, but GSSF just changed the discounts so you no onger get the LE price. now, after you pay the $35 membership fee, you're saving like $20 off a glock. hardly worth it....

    I wasn't aware of that change. I agree it isn't worth it just for the discount. I like the matches though so for someone like me it is.
