Ammo Poll
Place your opinion on the poll if you want to, maybe that will help release your pain.

I have this set so no one knows how you voted or who you are.

I think you made some sensible choices here - Maybe there can be one on Garand and Carbine purchases as well?

I see another poll showed up....

You can talk about ammo rationing all you want, it will not affect the decision of CMP. I don't care what the limit is!
( as long as I get my 100 cans ) :)

Personally I think you should have added 1 can per month or a total of 12 per year.

If you allow one additional can for each garand purchased you will have two new sets of complainers:

1- "I can only afford one garand per lifetime but I want ammo to shoot it"

2- "It's the profiteers that are buying 12 garands a year, now you are rewarding them with additional ammo"

There is no limit on purchases that will ever be considered "fair". The only logical move is to sell it at street price of $150+ per can. This will (theoretically) filter out the "profiteers" by removing their profit margins. It will also control sales pace and extend inventory life to appease those that think it will last forever.

i think 15 a year is a good limit, i mean what if there is someone who also shoots their 1903 or 1917's that are chambered in 30-06?

or in my case my brother, who is only 16 he is too young to even get a FID in New Jersey, he can't buy ammo to shoot, yet he is active in the firearms community.

Why not limit the ammo based on the number of rounds, not by can's?

I bet number of rounds in a can will help set the amount one is able to purchase.
