    Airline Pilot Deal - Other Than HK?

    I know that H&K offers a significant discount to airline pilots who are FFDO's and wish to purchase for their own use an HK of the same model as the issue model. Does anyone know.......

    1. I've heard that they offer to deal to pilots who are not FFDO's. True or false?

    2. If so, can you buy a different HK model than the issue weapon?

    3. I've heard that other companies make a similar offer. If so, which?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm a FDX guy and not an FFDO.

    1. True
    2. I hope so...I just posted a thread about the USP 40C, but I'm not sure I want the LEM model.
    3. Someone said Glock offers the same deal, but not sure.

    I'm an ASA guy, your thread inspired mine as I didn't want to hijack yours.

    I'm not sure I want the LEM either, and I would rather have it in 9mm than 40.

    There are something like 10 different 'standard' variants to the USP/c, and if you go to the HK Pro forum you'll see non-standard variants also, like 'combat' sets, match triggers combined with different variants, and smiths that offer things like the LEM trigger set with a manual safety - all by mixing and matching HK components.

    Im a private guy in the fractional side.

    As far as I know, HK is 121 only, FFDO or not. 40c and thats it. Glock definitely does it with a max of 2 guns per year. Already got one, deciding on the next. Call their sales office in Smyrna, GA and they will help you out. Its the same pricing that the LEOs get, which is EXCELLENT. I got my G27 w/ Trijicons for $488 shipped with 2 extra mags.

    I don't know of any others. I sent emails to S&W, and Kimber, got a big negative for pilots on both counts. Drafting one for Ruger, but I don;t expect anything better...

    I agree with AVI, the pistol in question(HK) is the same as the issue firearm. The order form doesn't give you any options on the pistol.

    At one time, Sig did it. I'm not sure if they do anymore or not. S&W did it to for a short time after 9/11.

    NICE! I must not have dealt with anyone "in the know"

    Buds Police Supply has some great deals, but not a whole lot of inventory... I know, its a sign of the times....

    Are those Buds deals or factory deals? A lot of times the retailer will offer their own deals in attempt to mask the factory deals that are available because they don't really make much money on the factory deals. At any rate, the Buds deals are pretty darn good. I think I might go with them just to avoid hassles dealing with the factory reps

    I just emailed a S&W LE sales guy for my region, I'll let everyone know when I hear back from him.

    Sig doesn't include pilots, but they do have a discount for military/law enforcement/first responders.

    Military / Federal Government -> Individual Officers

    I emailed 'em to see if they could include commercial pilots.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    Now my personal $64 question is whether the S&W discount will apply to a Walther PPS.....

    AV8: If you talk to that S&W rep ask him, if you don't mind.

    I kinda doubt it; but Kahr has a really nice LE program, but I have no idea if the extend that to pilots.

    I'm not real optimistic, but since S&W markets Walther in the US and puts a S&W stamp on the slide as the importer I'm hoping it might happen.

    If we get the actual LE discount, it DOES apply to Walther as well.

    No response yet, now I probably won't hear anything till at least after Christmas....
