Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

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.
NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!
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
*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.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
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.

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.
