West Virginia Law Enforcement Distributors is a West Virginia owned and operated corporation. We started in 2009 out of what we viewed as a need to service the law enforcement and first responders in West Virginia. Most law enforcement agencies were purchasing their firearms and accessories from out-of-state vendors, many charging above average costs. We also noticed a disconnect in service after the sale.
We are the only in-state Law Enforcement Distributor for Smith & Wesson products. Our staff is very knowledgeable of firearms, ammunition, optics and a wide array of tactical accessories.
Our president, Rusty Reed, retired as a lieutenant after 25 years with the West Virginia State Police. In his position, he often made purchases from out-of-state companies. He remembers well a conversation with a vendor who asked what “precinct” to ship the items. Clearly, this supplier did not understand the nature of law enforcement in West Virginia.
We are proud of our State. The patrolmen, deputies, troopers, firefighters, EMT, ambulance workers and first responders in West Virginia are hard working and accustomed to doing their job in tough weather, with worn equipment, and a thin work force. We hear and understand what “do more with less” means. We strive to get you the equipment you need from your neighbors at a good price. We live here; we work here; we play here in West Virginia.
We also have an excellent relationship with the many military units in West Virginia. It is not surprising to us that West Virginia has one of the highest per capita enlistments in the armed services of any state. West Virginians give. We are here to serve the tactical and equipment needs of the individual soldier and military personnel throughout the State. See our “Special Products” tab.
Our products are also available to retired members of the police, fire, first responders of all types and military personnel. Your career service has earned our respect.
