LaRue tactical limits LE sales to same as civilian

Recommended Posts

That takes some stones.

 

First of all it's about to get worse in CA than it is in NY. With the legislature packed with democrats it's pretty much a certainty that quite a bit will pass. Everything from outlawing detachable magazines to mandatory insurance for gun owners is in the pipeline.

 

So in response, LaRue tactical, a small manufacturer in Texas decides that all sales to LE departments (excluding federal and the military) will be to the same standards that civilians are held to. For example, the same mag limits and feature prohibitions.

 

That's sure to whizz some people off, and the comments on FPC's facebook posting and LaRue's facebook are already drawing some nasty responses.

Better yet, BUY SOMETHING FROM THEM when you send them your thank you letter. Make up for one of the sales.

 

I have LaRue Tactical mounts on two of my rifles, and they are the best in the world. Plus, they send you an Aardvark bottle opener and maybe even some BBQ rub if you are lucky. BUY SOMETHING FROM THEM.

its not hard guys. Go to the webpages of S&W, Ruger, Colt, FN, Remingon, Glock, Mossberg, Kimber, Sig, Bushmaster, etc and click on the "Contact Us" button nearly everyone has.

 

Then call them or write them a note saying basically if you want me to support you, then support us. Without us, there is not a big enough market for them to exist on government contracts alone.

 

 

Yes, I know it will take an hour to contact 20-30 manufacturers. I think its worth it.

 

Also, contact NSSF, they represent the industry.

I believe Barrett did the same thing in NJ when the last "AWB" was passed. They basically held the government to the same standards as civvies. Essentially they said that if the civilian market wasn't allowed to own their firearms, neither would they sell to L.E. departments. It seemed to draw quite a bit of criticism but it worked. I plan on writing the companies tomorrow and following up with phone calls to them stating the I feel it is a good tactic.

You can always post it on their Facebook page and tweet them, may be quicker and it takes less time. Social networking is very important to any company these days and they pay attention to this data.

    • I used to fly out of Newark with some regularity with handguns, but it's been at least 10 years.   I'd get there plenty early, and bring with me copies of the airline policy on checking guns, and the Federal law that backed up the airline policy...because occasionally you'd get a ticket agent who was convinced that it couldn't possibly be legal, and you need to be able to convince them that they need to check with a supervisor instead of just telling you 'no'.   But usually it was straightforward, at least back then. Assuming they still use the orange 'Firearm' tags that you sign certifying the gun is unloaded, etc, those tags go INSIDE the suitcase.  Many years ago they had to go on the outside, which was like a big fluorescent 'Steal Me' sign on your suitcase.   That policy changed to inside-the bag quite a while ago, but you don't want the one agent who didn't get the memo to put it on the outside of your bag. I wonder if shipping the air pistol is an option?  NJ would probably consider it illegal, as they pretend it's a real gun, but wherever you are going almost certainly knows better...and the Feds don't care.   But that might leave you with the problem of getting it back into NJ, if that is your intent.  If it's a one-way trip for the air pistol and if you aren't too far from PA, I'd consider driving across the border and mailing the gun, especially if you can use a non-NJ address for the return address. It IS legal to ship long guns to yourself...not sure about handguns.  USPS and UPS both allowed it, though again the counter clerk will be convinced you can't do it, and someone is going to have to look up the law for them.   Shipping to yourself, if you are physically present from where it is sent, and then are physically present to receive, is legal because it is NOT a transfer.
    • When I lived in NJ, I flew out of Philly many times with a rifle/handgun. No issues at all.    Follow the advice on the airline website. You’ll need a hard sided, lockable case. Do NOT use TSA locks.    You will be required to open your case and display the weapon is clear.  You will fill out a form, which will be locked inside the case.  TSA may or may not desire to inspect the case and/or the bag the case is inside. That’s up to them.
