The firearm industry mainly focuses on offering discount programs for military and law enforcement personnel. These programs don’t extend outside to other highly dangerous and critical job occupations that serve our communities. Springfield Armory’s new FRISTLINE program aims to offer a discount to more than just military and law enforcement. The new program offers discounts to firefighters, EMTs, medical, judicial, and select aviation personnel. All that is needed to take advantage and participate in the discount is appropriate identification associated with your job.

The FIRSTLINE program from Springfield Armory acknowledges the dangers faced by a wide range of occupations and the potential dangerous scenarios that work can entail. Giving these professions easier access to purchase a firearm for self-defense purposes or protection of another. The program offers the FIRSTLINE discount to unique occupations such as commercial pilots, court judges, prosecutors, EMTs, paramedics, and volunteer firefighters.
