Our opinion is no.. they are no less a national treasure. The only thing required is an honorable discharge.
    I have a 100 percent rating and I haven't been told by anyone military or VA that I'm retired. I was only in for 4 years (8 if you want to count that inactive bit) so I wouldn't be retired in that sense ether.

    That's awesome that you guys give that discount though.

    Lol yeah they told me no. However the retired LEO wasn't there when I went. So it still may be possible.

    First let me say THANK YOU! Thank you to our military personnel.

    Now, I am also a professional photographer and when I know someone served in our military, it doesn't matter to me if they are active, retired or just out and now former military, they get a discount. What our military does for us is irreplaceable. There are not enough thank yous to be said. I was also a volunteer firefighter in NY, so our military has a special place in my heart. We lost 343 good men and women that day, some instructors, a guy in my fd lost his brother, so THANK YOU AGAIN for what you do or did!

    Sorry, off on a tangent there.

    Be safe!

    Seconded^^^ Thank you to ALL that have served, in ANY capacity.

    As for Glock's, this is who they allow to use LEO discounts:

    *All sworn Law Enforcement Officers (LEO) State, County and City
    *All Federal Law Enforcement Officers (LEO) FBI, US Marshals, DEA etc
    *All Retired LEO with "retired" credentials including Federal, State, County & City
    *State Licensed Securtiy Companies (ie. Loomis Fargo, RAM, Securitas, etc)
    *State/City licensed Security officers
    *Active Military personnel-all branches
    *National Guard personnel-all branches
    *Military Reserve personnel-all branches
    *Legitimately retired military veterans with "retired" military ID
    *All TSA employees
    *Licensed Paramedics and EMT's
    *Fire Fighters (including volunteers) with appropriate ID
    *Commercial Pilot license holders & Federal Flight Deck Officers
    *Court Judges
    *District Attorneys and Deputy District Attorneys

    The discounts can be pretty significant. Around here, with this discount, I can get one for $425 out the door. It's not bad, at all. If you're able to, snatch it.

    Not to hijack the thread, but speaking of LEO and Military use only stuff, here's the T-Shirt Mr. ColionNoir was wearing in his last YouTube video. I love it.

    From a pure economic stand it would be difficult to justify giving a discount to everyone that served 4 years and bounced. That's a very large segment of society that you're offering special prices to. (In fact I'm not sure how special the price would seem. I have a feeling you'd be blamed for charging more to people that didn't serve than credited for giving a discount to those that did.) I signed up not expecting to get any special treatment. Just because I'm out now doesn't change that- I still don't expect anything special.

    I salute each and every vet I see. But you'll still pay full price if I'm selling something.

    I think I know the one you are talking about and I LOVE the store. Their other one next door not so much. granted the discount is not for AD family members (that would have been nice for the wife). I'm going up there in a week or two to grab an AR lol well to get on the waiting list :(

    Streicher's in Butler, WI, among other locations, lets Security, any Military (active duty, Guard, Reserve) & Military retirees use their LEO pricing.

    Most of those who have served our country in the various militaries have served proudly and with honor. A 20 year career is not for everyone. Most combat vets left the military after their TDY's. While they may not be retired after 20 or so years, they certainly have paid their dues. They deserve our respect, and any consideration given to any other solder.

    Most places will specify what they mean, if not you can always ask.

    I think in most cases just having been in the military is not what they mean since there are so many it might prove cost prohibitive. Most companies will state some form of current active duty (to include Reserves or National Guard), or Retired, which usually means 20+ years or medical (DD Form 2 Identification card). So, no your one tour in the military (3-6 years) may not qualify.
