I'm looking at purchasing a new 12 ga (870 or 1100) and .45 (S&W M&P or SA XD).
Anywhere in town (Anchorage) have military discount or maybe multi-gun purchase discount?
Option 1. Don't know Anchorage but the Sportsmans Warehouse in Fairbanks give a military discount.
Option 2. Keep your eyes open, you are looking for pretty common (dang good) guns. They are pretty easy to find for sale used. Local paper, here at the swap and sell forum, etc.
Sportsman Warehouse and Mountain View Sports will give a 5% discount to any military ID card holder including us retired old farts.
I can tell you for certain the BX is a total fricking rip off. Last week I went in looking for a Walther P22 pistol. BX wanted $390! Boondocks and Sportsman Warehouse both wanted $309 for the exact same pistol.
I used my 5% discount at Sportsman and then added a $10 off coupon I received at the Sportsman Show this spring. Ask around as someone may have an extra coupon they have no plans to use.
