Default Hook, Line and Sinker in Oakly is Glock BLUE LABEL ffl. :)

What is "Blue Label"?

Discount Glocks for cops, and other "first responders" including Rent-a-Cops with gun permit and employment verification.

Used to be IIRC the only Blue Label store was way down in Watsonville.


"But I don't have an Armed Guard gun permit". (and I'm too old to become a cop)

You might consider getting one, even if you don't plan on becoming a full time Mall Cop, and keep it current and active. Means any of thousands of PPOs can "deputize" you with stroke of pen (actually its just handing you a shirt with their company patches, or even just patches) to strut around with an Exposed Firearm.

IMO its the sort of thing that CA is gonna try to restrict and you want to be Grandfathered in while the getting in is good.

This is excellent news. I used to have to drive all the way to LC Action in San Jose. Now I don't have to do that anymore.

It's a little more involved than that.
Class and shooting for armed card. Oh, and about 4 months of waiting to get the paper. Don't forget costs involved for application and live scan.
These costs are nothing to getting a PPO. $500 initial, $700 to finish it up. Not including insurance expenses.

Hook has been Blue Label for a little while now. I'll just go ahead and plug them and commend them on having knowledgeable staff and moderately stocked product across the shooting, fishing and archery lines.

Active and retired military qualify. Not someone that is separated from the military.

They aren't listed as Blue Label on Glock's website. Did you verify that they are actual Blue Label dealer's, or just offering special pricing and LE only guns?

J&R sports in Livermore is, or certainly was when Randy was alive, also a Glock blue label dealer. I bought all my glocks from him when I lived in Ca, and every time they had to make a copy of my FD ID to verify eligibility.

so I can "strut around" after I get a permit and someone gives me a shirt?

Lol, I tease. You'd probably have to pass all the screening questions and actually be hired and actually ON the job too

I agree OP, with your bottom line...that looks like something that may face even more state restrictions and scrutiny in the future.

Blue Label: Does being a member of GSSF still get you a "coupon" to purchase a new Glock at the Blue Label fee schedule, even if not LEO/Armed Security/Mil etc?

It was like that a few years ago, as I recall.

Click the youtube in my sig. AFAIK both were still employed after boss learned of incident, and company still has the contract, sending similar people out among the public, including lots of little kids birthday parties at the park.

There are TONS of companies that hire literally ANYONE with the Guard Card, on the spot, no ref checks, no drug test.

Last few re-qualifications I shot at least 1/2 the guys missed the target several times (3rd worlders, currently working outside banks). IMO if you miss at that distance you don't need training, you need to see a doctor.��

Yes. GSSf members get a certificate for purchase of a maximum of one gun per year at reduced prices.

1 year is $35; 2 yrs is $60. Far cheaper than a guard card.

If you take the 1year membership, you don't get the certificate for purchase until after 12 months.

If you get the 2 year membership, you get a certificate for purchase immediately and a second certificate in 12 months.

Sadly, I believe it's been a couple years now. He was a genuinely wonderful human. The shop is still going strong last I heard. Certainly worth a call for any east bay-er who is eligible and looking for blue label. The pricing is very very attractive. There was a brief period where Glock dropped Fire Departments from blue label. But it's back and has been for a while to my knowledge. Haven't bought a new Glock in some time. Waiting to check out the new gen 5, which my current LGS will be debuting and having a limited release and sale on in a couple weeks.

Blue Label requirements:
Quote:
State Licensed Security Companies (Loomis, RAM, etc.) Also includes State Licensed Armed Security Officers Employed by State Licensed Security Companies (with Employment Picture ID from company front & back) Certifications alone are not authorized and do not qualify.

Just to be clear, the Blue Label program does not supercede the CA Roster prohibitions. One must still hold a roster exemption to use Blue Label to obtain guns not on the roster.

You know I'm not sure. I'm retired now too so I guess I'll find out when I try to get my next one via blue label. Of course if I choose to get the gen 5 in a couple weeks when it's early released, I suspect they won't have any blue labels anyway, just regular priced.

The GSSF route is a good one.
