    Anybody know?

    Just filed my tax return and I have a little money coming my way, hopefully in the next week or two thanks to e-file. I'm going to jump on the 1911 bandwagon when I get it and my question to all is this...

    Does Colt have any kind of law enforcement purchase plan like Glock and Sig? Anybody know a good place that caters to the boys in blue? I don't mind an FFL transfer fee if it yields some good savings. Obviously being the popo I'm not exactly rich so I'm looking to save where I can.

    Colt, Kimber, and Springfield all have LEO purchase programs.

    If you have an idea which way you plan to go, I'd be glad to hook you up.

    Although I am personally of the opinion that Colt still makes the best rifles, I cannot say that is true any more of 1911's.

    I personally like Kimbers and Springfields in the "service" class, and if price is a worry obviously Wilson, Baer, et al are out of the question.

    If you come to a decision point, I have lists of LEO distributors for all three.

    Department regs say it has to be a series 80 colt or a para ordinance p13/p14 if memory serves. I'm sure it all has to do with the firing pin block. I'm looking at the Colt XSE series. The custom's are nice but I don't have 2-3k to dump into a new weapon in one shot. I figure I'll start with the XSE and start putting some rounds through it and I'll change what I don't like or want to change/upgrade as I go.

    Any info you have on Colt's LEO program would be great. You can PM it or post it, whichever you prefer! Sorry for the late response I'm working the next few days so I'm trying to check back when I can.

    For all my Colt needs, I deal with Mr. Elmore at Specialized Armament.

    There is no finer Colt man, and if there is something to know about a Colt he is the man to see.

    You are probably familiar with Dave's Guns. Jensen Arms in Loveland is very cop friendly and they have a great selection.

    When did they closed?

    I didn't go there much, because the poop was that the owner was a convicted felon who put the place in his momma's name. Any truth to that?

    I heard rumors that he like to sell our personal information to less than savory individuals. I bought my G34 and P3AT there before I knew what kind of POS he was.

    Never went to Dave's.

    Jensen's in Loveland is a good shop, I used to frequent that place when I was living in Ft Collins. Huge selection, and cop friendly.

    There is a new shop (a smaller one) in Arvada called 5280 Armory. They mostly sell AR-15's and AK copies, but they do have a pretty good handgun selection in my recollection. Their prices were competitive the last time I checked, and the owner will provide a nominal LE discount (at least the last time I was there).
