Law Enforcement Law Enforcement Firearms & Hi-Cap Magazine Purchases

As you already know, Brandon Enterprises is the place to purchase all of your equipment. However, certain weapons and post-ban hi-capacity magazines can only be sold to law enforcement agencies and/or officers. While the process to make such as purchase is quick and painless, there are a few extra forms involved which must be submitted before a sale can be processed. Instructions for such a transaction are as follows:

  1. Please use this classification only for weapons which are being purchased for use exclusively by the department, for the department...

  2. Draft a purchase order or department letter requesting the purchase of said equipment. (Originals only! NO photocopies or FAXes) should be sent. The letter should be signed by the head of the requesting agency (i.e. Chief, Sheriff, Constable, Warden, etc.)
