The Cabellas store in Post falls ID does NOT give a .mil discount and were quite rude about my asking about it. It was my first time in a cabellas' store and most likely will be my last. Sportsman's wherehouse will get my business from now on..

Per the skdtac.com policies page:

"No LE/Military Discount

We get this question alot, so we'll answer it here. We do not have a specific LE/Military discount at this time. Thousands of LE/Military customers choose to deal with us over outfits that offer discounts because we have excellent pricing, $5 flat shipping (fully insured to APOs), and items are in stock and can't be "backordered". For a business of our size, we have one of the largest inventories anywhere- that takes both money and balls- money to keep items on the shelves, and balls to tie up that money in a heavy inventory for our customers. When a business turns more profit back into inventory than it does for it's employees, the customer wins."

Smith Sunglasses
Gerber knifes/tools
leaupold
Back country USA

those are a few that come to mind.
pretty much any Company that has a GSA contract will give you a military/GOV discount if you ask.

for the LA police gear I found out the "military" code is only 1% off....to get the 10% off you need to call in your order.

Would you happen to have more information? I wrote Burris's customer service, and they denied knowing anything about a military discount. Maybe I should have said LEO discount, but if you have some contact information that would be great.

I called in an order to ATS Tactical today and asked about any LEO/SWAT discounts. I advised that I could quickly e-mail my creds, but was told "no discounts for LEO". For what its worth......

EDIT: The female I spoke with on the phone was very nice. An item was listed "out of stock", but she walked out onto the sales floor to double check. I ended up getting exactly what I needed. Discount or not, I will order from them again.

Yeah, I kinda just found out myself. When I used to order a lot from them before, I always dealt w/ Brook Wiegand and he always hooked me up. He was the MIL/LE guy at that time. Well, about 2 weeks ago I called again and apparently he's no longer there. According to Lauren she said that they do give LE discounts but it has to be a "big" order. I didn't ask how "big" was "big."

And yeah, ATS customer service is top notch!

No specific problem. I'd still buy from SKD, discount or not. At the time, I just thought the whole money/balls comment was kind of lame.

Yes, they do. It's best to call the order in so they can apply the discount.

ETA: the discount is only for their products.
