    Just curious how you guys feel about this, especially those who are in the military, or have served in the past.


    My username/avatar is the same, so you can read my opinion on the subject over there.

    For those that don't know, I'm in the Marine Corps Reserve, therefore I'm not "eligible" for this discount, nor is any veteran. However, a boot private straight out of boot/basic is. Any opinions?

    Edit* This isn't an attack towards Dillon, but they are the company who is the subject in the BE forum thread. As far as I'm concerned, I feel the same way regardless of the company or business. I have a Dillon beam scale and will hopefully have a 650 someday. Their products and reputation is great, but whole heartily don't agree with this.

    i, too, feel shortchanged sometimes as a Veteran, but as one told me soon after I left the service and griped about commissary and such things that I was missing: "membership has it's privileges".

    I'm retired and it doesn't bother me. They gotta draw a line somewhere, maybe you can buy while you're on your 2-week training? :biggrin1:

    that is a shame! Too bad it isnt like other things where you could go with the competition! Dillon really has none! Maybe you could find a Dillon dealer to get a discount from.

    Oh I'm not worried about the discount, it's cheaper to order from BE anyway because of the free shipping. I'm just "upset" about them not acknowledging veterans. That is what get's me!

    Besides, if you scan your valid ID you can get the discount, but that's not the point. I just don't understand how such a great company doesn't include veterans.

    Very few (if any) companies that offer military-discounts include veterans or retirees.

    I really don't need the discount, and if leaving me out means they offer it to active duty vs none, I'm good with that.
