    Is blue label pricing for sworn officers only?

    What's with this picture ID front and back on the Blue Label site?

    Each distributor plays by their own rules. They usually get in trouble when Glock audits them.

    To verify you actually hold the position you say you do?

    Sounds pretty reasonable. It's not saying the photo has to be on the front and back, just that the ID has a photo and both the front and back are examined.

    Nobody looked at the back of my ID during a Blue Label purchase. I think it means information on both sides. My ID would pass that test. The front says I am a sworn LEO. What does the back have to say?

    Our records clerk and the chief’s secretary have police dept IDs but on it they say what they do and says nonsworn on it. They don’t qualify.

    The shop I deal with always runs a photo copy of the front and back of my I.D. The front has a photo and identifies me as an officer. The back has verbiage to the effect of "This is to certify that the officer shown is a duly sworn officer with..... and it gives the agency name and address. Then it is signed by the Chief at the bottom.

    Yea, last year Glock offered this to any honorably discharged veteran but only a limited time offer. Pretty cool...
