"Law Enforcement" Creed?

Picked this up the other day. Creed with three mags and marked as "Law Enforcement/First Responder". I'm somewhat skeptical that many, if any, LE agencies use the Creed as an issued firearm but it's an inexpensive, reliable gun so it would make sense.

Whenever thinking about government contracts, never forget the mantra of the low bid.

What state was it sold in? Some states anything over 10 rounds is LE only.

Never saw a sticker on a box in my 27 years as a LEO. Bought my share of handguns and rifles. Could be as stated for high capacity mags. Hard to say. Also as discussed here before, has Walther ever entered into the LE market for bidding and products? We were often approached by glock, S&W, Sig just to name a few. Never Walther.

Maybe it's a gun intended for individual officer purchase.

It is a "Blue Line" weapon and should only be sold to one who is appropriately credentialed...as Balogh noted.

Most LGS will not sell these to anyone without seeing ID and submitting the proper paperwork to the dealer for fear of losing their pipeline to these weapons.

Personally, I have no problems with someone owning a "blue line". Dealers in my area only sell to credentialed individuals...


My flash washed out the blue label a bit but you get the idea....I think what may have happened is a LEO or other credentialed individual ordered a Creed for personal use and possibly couldn't accept the order and it went "on the counter". Still the OP got a nice deal I would suppose.

Why are they ripping off First Responders? There's nothing special I can see about that weapon and its more than you can readily get a Creed for elsewhere.

I'm retired US Air Force and so qualified for the LE version.

It depends upon where the OP lives. In my experience, Blue Line has almost always been the best local price, especially when you factor in the extra mag and no shipping fee...also many LGS tend to throw in other "goodies" at point of purchase...
