LaRue tactical limits LE sales to same as civilian

Recommended Posts

http://www.firearmsp...lian-standards/

 

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.

    • Can someone explain what the timing limits are for the quals?  I know it’s 50 rounds broken down at various distances, but what is the timing requirement in total or per distance?

    • Please read this entire post, there is a lot of information, please read read all of it before making a decision. I am selling ALL of my reloading equipment, everything set up for 9mm, 45 ACP, 223, and 308. I will not ship Large or Hazmat items, pick up local in the Manalapan area. I am willing to drive 10 miles in any direction. For large orders I would consider driving further. I can ship small, non-Hazmat items on your dime. Keep in mind, bullets are small but very heavy, shipping them will be expensive   My pricing methodology is simple, all prices are based on retail prices as of 6/29/2022: All hardware, whether New or Used, is 10% below amazon prices. Powder is full retail price per powder valley prices for un-opened containers. 10% below retail for remaining amount of opened containers Primers are all 10% below Powder Valley prices because I threw out all the original 1,000 count outer boxes and have the 100 count cards in ziplock bags Bullets are full retail price per powder valley and Berry’s prices for un-opened boxes. 10% below retail for loose bullets All prices are rounded to the nearest dollar There is always room to negotiate price as long as the offers are reasonable. But all negotiations must be completed prior to delivery, not during the delivery (I had a bad experience with this).   First “I’ll take it” in the thread, not via PM, gets the sale. If we are negotiating via PM and someone says “I’ll take it” in the thread during negotiations, the “I’ll take it” gets the sale.   If you want all of it, we can work out a package deal, and you will get all my brass for free, some of which is already primed. But keep in mind, it will be around $3K   Most items can be purchased separately but some will need to be combined for obvious reasons. Here is the extensive list. Photos will be provided upon request, there are too many to put into the post.   I accept Cash or Paypal as gift   Press - as a set - $643.49 Total    Hornady LnL AP press (Includes all retail components and manual, NO shell plates or dies)     - $507    Inline Fabrications roller lever (painted)                                                                                                 - $50    Inline Fabrications dual bin output tray                                                                                                  - $36    Inline Fabrications skylight                                                                                                                       - $27    Inline Fabrications shell plate lighting                                                                                                    - $25    3D printed case feeder                                                                                                                              - FREE    3D printed attachment to empty powder drop                                                                                     - FREE    Wood stand                                                                                                                                               - FREE    MTM Primer Flipper (Clear Smoke)                                                                                                      - FREE    Hornady LnL Shell Plates – Sold individually #1                                                                                  - $36 #8                                                                                  - $36 #16                                                                                - $36 #25                                                                                - $36   Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension 2-Die Set – Sold individually .223 (2 LnL Bushings Installed - $12)                             - $60 .308 (2 LnL Bushings Installed - $12)                             - $60   Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension 3-Die Set – Sold individually 9 mm (3 LnL Bushings Installed - $18)                            - $68 .45 ACP (3 LnL Bushings Installed - $18)                        - $68   Case Prep – Sold individually Frankford Arsenal Platinum Series Rotary Tumbler with 7-Liter Capacity                                                                                               - $135 Frankford Arsenal Quick-N-EZ 110V Case Tumbler Kit Reduced more than 10% due to loose powder cable in the tumbler         - $50 Frankford Arsenal Platinum Series Case Trim and Prep                                                                                                                             - $171 Lyman 7832323 Reloading 223 Case Length/Headspace Gauge                                                                                                             - $19 Lyman Reloading 308 Win Case Length/Headspace Gauge                                                                                                                      - $19 Lyman Reloading 45 A.C.P.
