Alternative Purchase
 
Should you find yourself without a 1911 at the end of it all, for what will you use the cash you set aside?

Personally, I'm going for an M1 Carbine.

Why must you spend it?

It could be on bills, groceries, etc.
For myself, I know I have set this money aside for another item in my collection.

Funny should mention that...I’m planning on an M14 one way or the other

My backup plan - another Garand (IHC Field Grade) or the Advanced Maintenance Class. I hope I find out if I made the 1911 cut before they have the lottery for the AMC. I finally got my number 12036 Feb 27, so there ya go CMP1911, I went and ordered an IHC Field Grade. See what you made me do? :)

The Advance Maintenance Class is very high on my want to do list.

As for the OP's question. That money will be sitting aside while I wait my turn for a CMP 1911. I've squirreled it away for the CMP, so I'm in no hurry to spend it on something else. I have other mad money stashed. ;)

Gun Money Account
 
I've been saving money for a 1911 since I first read about them being included in the 2015 NDAA. I figured 1k was what I would need, so I've earmarked that amount in my gun account since I met my goal, and it will stay put until I get a call.

I figured my chances were so limited, I just plan on using a credit card... No money burning a hole in my pocket

I went ahead and ordered a SA MC Operator in preparation for a letdown, to scratch my 1911 itch. It will complement my other 2 1911ís. Also snagged a Mossberg Shockwave cerakoted, ordered a G19 to use up my GSSF coupon for the year and last week picked up a Sub 2000. Not going to be totally bummed if I never get a call but I really want one of these historical pieces.

What cash set aside? Was I supposed to have funds earmarked for a CMP 1911? Wish you had told me this ahead of time... [TIC]
