LaRue Tactical has always been a class act.
Mark LaRue, the owner, is a great businessman and quite the philanthropist as well, giving generously to pro-gun rights causes and projects with both cash and product.
His latest: He holds state and local law enforcement to the same laws which are inflicted upon the civilians they serve in their respective states / municipalities.
7 round magazines? If it is good enough for civilians, its good enough for Bloomberg’s security detail.
No semi-autos? If it’s good enough for civilians, it’s good enough for the New York State Police.
You get the idea.

(Facebook) – Updated Policy for State and Local Agency Law Enforcement Sales:
Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.
Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.
State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.
We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm’s sales – and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
