So i go into a local gun store today and i fell in love with a XD and was then informed that i could NOT buy the gun because it is a "LE" model and ONLY active duty military and police can get it.....
so this puts me into a stage of¬* P/O i have never been, After i realized that arguing with the gun store owner was useless i went and wrote a very nasty letter to S&W and CC'd a copy to GLOCK as well.
I stated in the letter that not allowing Vets to get the LE model was not only wrong it would look poorly on the company for saying that they do not support the vets and i threatened to goto every VFW hall in the state and get anyone who would listen to boycott both companies for there lack of respect and appriciation.
Well 4 days later i figured i would get a letter back and it would say that they would not change the policy and to go jump in a lake.
WELL i got a Email back and low and behold not only did i get a heart felt appoligy but i also got a thank you for serving my country... I got the policy changed... Its amazing what you can do if your mad enough.............
I know this isnt exactly OC material but i know there is alot of Vets on here and i figured it wasnt a bad thing to let people know.
Sounds more like a moron shopkeeper.
'LE/mil only guns' are usually restricted as such because of state laws restricting magazine size, which WA doesn't have...
I've never seen a situation, other than above, where a gun was 'LE only'.
