I have a few Glocks.

There are a couple of methods that you can acquire a Glock at a discount if you are under the following:

Law Enforcement
Homeland Security (includes Firefighters, Paramedics, EMTs)
Active Duty Military
Active Drilling Reserves
National Guard
RETIRED military (ID Card Required)
TSA personnel
Commercial Pilots
(This list may have changed)

You can contact Glock Directly, order a Service Pistol through Glock and have the Firearm transferred to your FFL:

U.S. Headquarters

GLOCK, Inc.
6000 Highlands Parkway
Smyrna, GA 30082
USA
Phone:770-432-1202FAX:770-433-8719 For further information on GLOCK pistols, please contact your local GLOCK stocking dealer.
Customer Service

To receive additional product and parts information, delivery schedules, information about your order, or other shipping information please contact:
Phone:770-432-1202FAX:770-433-8719Alternatively, you can contact Glock to determine a local dealer who sells to law enforcement. You can call around your area, also. You can opt to buy a Blue Box Glock which depending upon the caliber can give you significant discounts. For full sized or compact Glocks, 9mm or 40 Cal (Model 17, 19, 22, 23), depending upon your locale, they sell anywhere from $409 to $420 and you get additional magazines but you must call for details. For subcompact Glocks, 9 mm or 40 cal (Model 26, 27), you get a discount but no additional magazines. Glocks outfitted with nightsights are sometimes available and are usually less expensive than getting a conventional sight and buying aftermarket tritium sights.


Larger calibers are available but the prices I had looked into, in Florida ranged from $480 to $500 for 45 ACP. I did not query whether 10 mm or 357 Sig was an option.


Obviously, prices and availability depend upon locale. You may find it cheaper in another state but you have to pay FFL transfer fees which range from as low as $15 to $75. Average FFL fees are $40-$50. Some dealers do charge shipping to your FFL which can be anywhere from $25-$30 to $50 (sometimes more). Bud's Gun Shop offers free shipping but I don't recall that military discounts were an option (you'd have to call).


I included a link to a random online dealer (I HAVE NEVER USED THEM, IT WAS THE FIRST HIT ON GOOGLE. This is for informational purposes only and I, in no way, endorse or advocate them. This is just an example of cost savings. ):

MY BACKGROUND:

MY FIRST GLOCK, I PAID $529. It was a Glock 23 and the gun-seller did not let me know that military discounts were available or existed. Go figure! Ironically, I was IN UNIFORM when I ordered and paid for it! My second Glock was a Glock 27 which I purchased at the time for $409 + Background Check and Tax, locally. My Glock 30 was acquired from a local trade in Florida (I traded a Glock 21 for it). My Glock 36, I purchased from a fellow forum member and had it shipped to my FFL.

Upon searching, I found this longer list of eligible personnel from the following website:

Glock's Homeland Security Program

Being a law-enforcement officer, firefighter, paramedic or emergency medical technician, security officer, corrections or probation officer, judge and even a pilot is, as the old GI recruiting slogan said, "Not just a job - It's an adventure." Although developed for our military personnel, in today's war on terror this slogan holds true for all first responders. The "War on Crime" and the "Global War on Terror" have reiterated the need for all these professionals to be constantly ready. As true "first responders," they must train and prepare diligently for swift and skillful response. Being at the "Pointy end of the spear" exposes these professionals to daily risk. When agencies and individual first responders equip for the swift and accurate counter-violence that may be necessary to stop a deadly attack, they frequently select a GLOCK.
In 2005, GLOCK's Law Enforcement and Military discount program was expanded to include other first-responders. The Homeland Security Program provides a discount and additional magazine for full-sized and compact models to any professional that fall within their "first responders" category.
All that is required to take advantage of the GLOCK Homeland Security program is for qualifying personnel to go to a GLOCK law enforcement dealer or contact a dealer in their area and provide proof of employment or certification in the eligible first-responder field. The program provides personnel with quality pistols that will enable them to safely do their jobs, and reward them for their service.
PERSONS ELIGIBLE FOR THIS DISCOUNT INCLUDE:

  • All sworn LEO (Law Enforcement Officers) State, County and Local
  • All Federal LEO - F.B.I., U.S. Marshals, DEA, et cetera
  • All Corrections Officers, including Parole and Probation Officers
  • All retired LEO with "retired" credentials including Federal, State, County and Local
  • State Licensed Security Companies
  • State/City Licensed Security Officers
  • Active Military - all branches
  • Military Reserve Personnel - all branches
  • Honorably retired military veterans with "retired" military I.D.
  • All T.S.A. employees
  • Licensed Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians
  • Firefighters (including volunteer fireman) with appropriate I.D.
  • Commercial Pilot license holders and Federal Flight Deck Officers
  • Court Judges
  • District Attorneys and Deputy District Attorneys
