they do the $20 internal lock deal too. but no tax.

They had a M&P9c for $325 (or close to) when they first started selling but when I asked last week about that, they said it was a special intro price from their wholesale dealer.

I asked to speak to the supervisor and the supervisor told him the same thing I said. If you're foolish enough to believe them or just aren't educated in the proper names of ammunition types, be aware that if you do purchase it then find out later it's not correct, you CANNOT return it for a refund. I will say that they did have a number of boxes of 17 winchester super magnum available, which i swooped on immediately.
PX employees have a high turn over, if you notice that employee is still working there and still not understanding some really important basics like this, please let me know.

Who knows, AAFES does get some special deals, and I've found over a couple decades; that sometimes they intentionally or accidentally give folks who can shop there special deals. Just keep in mind, it's designed primarily for military members to be a convince, especially for the junior ranks that shop 'on-post' first. After that, the next biggest benefit is giving a percentage of their profits to MWR (junior military Moral, Welfare, and Recreation). At the end of the day, most of what they sell (guns or otherwise) is well meaning. It a non-profit at the end of the tax year.

I still recommend first buying from Maryland dealers, because in Maryland we are in a struggle, and helping local shops helps us all more in the long run. Supervisors at the PX tell me they are selling plenty, and FGGM firearms sales are brisk and will likely stay for a long time - also good news.

They have been saying they were going to become a Glock Blue dealer for months, but as mentioned it seems all the PX's in the country have to become Blue at the same time. Another reason to respect the Marines, they figured this out years ago! However, can't buy in VA so does me no good.

The times I have stopped in there it was standard PX "service", which is to say little to none.

I would also go to an IP long before I bought anything there. I was only interested in the blue deal with them since it was convenient for me and a good price. Going to the Cop Shop in B'more twice would be difficult and really miserable for me given just how much I really, really, really, hate B'more.

Yes, during their Black Friday sale. Yesterday I cruised past the gun counter, they have a revolver sale going on now.

I purchased a 19X when they were on sale, plus 10% off for using "Military Star" credit card. After all the discounts and zero tax, it was the same pricing as Blue Label.

Their normal firearm prices are too friggin high, the key is wait for one of their sales, plus 10% card discount. Otherwise you are spending toooooooooo much money.
