I hope every former cop and service member buys one for themselves to keep, give to a family member or even to resell and get in on this market of people wanting guns.

Seems like a little thing, but that is a great move of respect by S&W towards those that serve.

They just went up in respect in my book.

I tried to call the number to know how long the offer is going to last. Althought she wasn't there.

Hopefully long enough until the next pay day.

Active or retired, what about for veterans? Anyone know if they are included?

Wouldn't they be considered retired?

Nope.

Retirees are someone who did the full 20+ or were medically retired.

Veterans are people who separated from the military before they reach the 20.

Slow, not sure it didn't specify veterans so I'm assuming y'all aren't included. Although it wouldn't hurt to call and find out for sure.

I emailed and called to get more info but no respone. A link to the actual release would be sweet. I didn't see it on the S&W site and that concerns me.

I really don't need this offer right now....but man what a good one. My wife gave me the green light on the 629, I don't see it happening again this month.

I did not see anything in the original post about cops. Do you know something I do not know. I also agree this is very cool if it is true.
