No one thought that even for a minute, least of all, me. I do think that the dealer was over-reacting. I don't believe that it was ever Savage's intention to limit the market to LEOs only. Sometimes, dealers take Tacticool to a whole 'nuther level, and it's mostly hogwash.
Some manufacturers market guns trying to precisely target LEOs (Glock, for example, with their blue-tag guns), but again, I think that's hogwash. Of course, I'm one of those old cops who think that the police are the people, and the people are the police. There's no difference between me and another citizen except I get paid to do full-time what any good citizen would do if they saw a crime.
Sorry about the rant, but I don't think that police should be considered any differently than the rest of the civil population. We're civilians that get paid to do a job, nothing more, nothing less.
