There was still remnants of 5.11 merchandise on “clearance” if that even means anything. Lots of holsters. Dozens. They probably have what you want. The newer ones in stock are more narrow and more concealable, I guess. Get a new one even if you don’t really need it. Mags and such are now in the realm of the Armory and out of reach of credits and discounts. It’s like dealing with Watto from Star Wars: “Pro Shop credits are no good out here! I need something more tangible, more real!”

Okay, stupid question.

How do I buy one of these course certificates that you see all these guys selling on eBay and such?

I am a Diamond member, but I want to take my nephew to the 4-day defensive handgun course with me.

I could buy from one of the eBay'ers, I suppose...but where do they get 'em in the first place?

Certificates come with some memberships or membership upgrades. They go way back to the beginning of memberships. There are certs for classes or equipment rental or other things.

I have almost 50,000,000 certs. Not worth my time to haggle over certs but i do sell blues on ebay, and give away all types of certs to those who attend my seminars and bring others.

If that's all you need, make an account for him and let me know and I will transfer a Patriot membership to him free. This will allow you to take him to the following courses at any time:

Attend the following Front Sight Nevada courses free of charge and as often as you wish and as many times as you wish:

Two Day Defensive Handgun; Two Day Tactical Shotgun; Two Day Practical Rifle; Four Day Defensive Handgun; Four Day Tactical Shotgun; Four Day Practical Rifle.

I don't mind parting with one if you really need it rather than simply having a certificate. Not trying to undermine anyone else who is selling these, but figure why buy anything if someone will give you one for free.

Thanks for all of the replies to everyone else for letting me know what's in the shop. I remember when you could actually buy a lot with the credits AND still get the 40% discount. Now it appears that there's not much to buy and its marked up incredibly high. I have over 100k to blow and was just curious. Does anyone know when they stock the store by any chance?

Not sure if this is the same company Jedi54, but I would guess it is...

That’s fine. Did think blade tech was all that great. Got better performance out of my Uncle Mikes holster. Don’t really care for my blade tech and how the gun draws out of it.

I had never heard of them before either. I think I saw Blade Tech remnants on the hooks but I’m not sure. I bought one with credits @ $109.99 and I found it to be a good addition to the holster collection. There’s no belt adjustment so I fab’d a spacer. Works fine.

Poppa p... sorry for interjecting... that Patriot membership is great and most members don’t go beyond those classes, but if he ever wants to upgrade, unless he finds someone with a membership that can be transferred to an existing member he’ll be paying a lot to upgrade (hundred$). Better to pay $100 for a Diamond now than quite a bit more later. Just a thought.

I absolutely agree. However, based on what he stated and some assumptions on my part, I got the impression that him taking his relative was not going to be a regular thing. This is why I offered that particular membership. I no longer have any Diamonds as all of my Diamond memberships were automatically upgraded to Commander memberships. I would not hesitate to offer this to his relative as well as I have several thousand of these as well, but just assumed that he was not planning on taking the relative out all that frequently.

Thank you very much for the generous offer. Another forum member made a similar membership offer that I took up.

Again, much appreciated everyone!

So I got a robo dial from Iggy about a new batch of deals. "Pay $xxxx today, get some stuff, I'll pay you back 100% in 5 years". I'm interested....

Anyone here ever partake, and how did it work out for you?

I bought in last August when this was first offered. Two Hawk shotguns for 5 bills. Money back in 5 years? Sure. Got my guns in a timely manner.

How did the transfer work? Just pick a FFL of your choice, FS ships, and good to go? Not interested in the shotguns so much as I am the XD and glock.... how does that work with the handgun roster?

Anybody do this thing 5 or more years ago? Did you get a check in the mail from Iggy for your purchase price?

That’s how the transfer works. Send the gun letter that you’ll receive, your FFL’s business card and $50 to FS per gun. They ship to your FFL who may or may not charge sales tax depending on his interpolation. He’ll charge a transfer fee cuz you didn’t buy his guns. Then there’s the $25 DROS fee on top of that. So your 5 Bills will turn into at least $650+. Add more transfer fees for more guns, etc. As for that rotten POS roster, I’d check that but I believe the XD is ok, but the Glock will be a Gen 3.
The Champion club only came out last August so those rebates are still 48 months out. Time will tell. He must really be expecting to be raking it in by 2022 to be offering everyone’s money back.
