    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.

    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.

    Not sure if the reintroduced Sportsman's Warehouse still does a 10% or not.
    Non gun places
    Home Depot,

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