"Military and Law Enforcement Only" on the M&P
I looked through past threads and didn't see this topic, but I'd like to know if anyone else has run into this when it comes to the S&W M&P line.
One of my local gun shops is a S&W dealer, and he has plenty in stock. However, on the white price tag of EVERY single gun from the M&P line, regardless of caliber, model, compact or full-size, he has written in red ink "Military and Law Enforcement Only". Yes, even the M&P22. He does the same with the M&P AR's he has. I've never been interested in any of the S&W's in the past, but I've noticed the tag and wondered just WTF it was supposed to mean. Really? Only for military or law enforcement? Then what are they doing on the shelf in a commercial gun store? Is this dealer the only guy in town that local cops go to for M&P's? I hope not, because the prices are the same as other dealers in town for the same models, and no other gun store I've ever seen ANYWHERE goes to the trouble of writing this on the price tag. A gun shop just up the street has all the M&Ps you want, and no "military or law enforcement" restriction. One guy I work with claims that he has shown his retired military ID and not only does he get the gun, he gets a discount. Yet another guy at work (not military) has wanted to buy an M&P at this same place, and they refused to sell him one because he didn't have the "credentials".
I don't recall any article in any gun mag saying that M&Ps are restricted to military or leo, there's nothing about it on the S&W website, I've never heard of it anywhere else and just can't imagine it being the case. If so, I'll never buy a S&W anything, ever.
Like I said, just wondering if this guy is off his rocker, or if there's some big secret I'm not aware of.

Are you in a state that restricts magazine capacity to citizens? If ao the ae could all have only standard capacity mags, not limited
