Hey Guys, I am doing a report on Para-Ordnance P14-45 and P14-45 LDA pistols at Angelo State University this week. I am in a senior level salesmanship class and my assignment is to play the part of a salesman for Para-Ordnance and sell p14-45 pistols to a major law enforcement organization. I have done almost all the research I need so far with a few exceptions. I need to know the following: 1. How are they priced for LEO? 2. How else are they promoted other than TV and magazines? 3. How is the product distributed? A. Channels of Distribution? B. Quantities produced? C. Selling Policies? I have contacted Para-Ordnance myself asking these questions but they will not return my e-mails. I would greatly appreciate any help on this as it will count as half of my semester grade.

They are priced too high for most LEOs, I bought my glock 23 for $ 399. You might try the elite unit approach, like for Swat and HRT teams. Or when you are alone have the best backup a PO 14 shot 45. aim for departments that have their Officers spread too far apart. There are also police shows, I was at one in June that cover new eqquipment. Or a trial program. Let them evaluate a gun.You are beetter off with thew LDA. Most departmental lawyers might prefer it to locked and cocked. Just some thoughts.

1. Much cheaper than for Civilian. 2. Promo Porfolio plus product sample send directly to the Department. 3. How is the product distributed? A. Always send to the Chief or Sheriff. B. A couple of Promo Products and free ammo will suffice C. Life time warranty Plus free upgrade.

Thanks for the replies so far, guys. I still need to know: How many units are produced each year? Who are the distributers? How much do they cost for LEO?

How are you going to cite this web page Einstein? If you are researching a college paper, I suggest you do the proper literature review first. You need to conduct any original research by contacting Para-Ordanance. Try calling their corporate customer relations, or see if you can get a hold of a marketing or sales person via a distributor. Also refer to the APA for citation rules. If this is for half your grade, you need more than this web page can provide…….assuming you are actually writing a paper.
