I searched around on the forum and found nothing. I'm wondering what stores in the king county area have military discounts? Also, what brands offer a military discount? I know of Glock's, and I've heard rumors of a supposed S&W one-time buy 40% off MSRP. Thanks for any info you guys have!

My brother in law is a Nam vet.
He showed me two printed pages of stores and restaurants that give military discounts - usually 10 percent.
Try a Google search for that because he got it from another vet.
Also, Bud's Gun Shop has a law enforcement branch that offers military and law enforcement discounts of many brands.

P.S. Thanks for serving our country!

Smith and Wesson on their M&P handguns and rifles (most anyway). It's not actually a discount, but a mail in rebate.
SIG has their PSSC program.
Rock River Arms
HK, for the same price you get night sights and an extra mag.

I forgot, Wholesale Sports still has a 5% discount.
Not sure if the reintroduced Sportsman's Warehouse still does a 10% or not.

Is the wholesale sports discount for veterans or just active military?
