I know that feeling all too well, I discovered the CMP back when I was probably 14 or 15. I wanted One of those M1 Carbines so bad I could taste the cosmoline. Especially at the handsome price of $495 bucks for a good shooter. Unfortunately, they did not last until 2012 when I turned 18. Luckily us guys who weren't of age or weren't familiar with the CMP back then have a shot at them again next year provided people aren't placing orders for multiple carbines. Remember, the purpose of the CMP is to encourage marksmanship among the youth of America. Not a contest to see who can fit the most rifles in a safe.

Have a good day,
