I overheard an employee say today at the TMP garand sale that they have only received about 15,000 orders so far

That would be great, out of that 15,000 (say Mike is right), at least 5,000 could be trashed for not being complete, maybe?! I just think it would be high number in the sh__ can. Just a swag

Perfect example of why I do not enjoy these forums (much) anymore. I doubted the accuracy of the count, not the statement. Anyway, I can see why the moderators and powers that be would want to shut this entire thing down and give it a long break. JMHO

I think it’s great news if it pans out. Everyone’s chances are higher and it will be that much sooner that they can contemplate taking additional orders.

I believe it. Speaking as one who has tried unsuccessfully to pry "interested" friends off the couch to order an M1 or carbine. Even many people who are "interested" aren't organized or focused enough to fill out a 4-page form - unless an IRS agent is breathing down their neck.

This is a pretty focused group of people here on this forum - as you can tell by some of the fretting.

BTW ...this is the last Sunday before the 4th for the praying types. In case some might want to try praying their way to front of the RNG.

Just Sayin.

^

same here. the hoops cmp makes you jump through (which aren't that bad) keeps A LOT of people on the sideline. People seem to rather buy a garand off secondary market for $500-1000 more than go through CMP.

I would be surprised if it was as low as 15000 given the 500-600 or whatever that was reported as being too early. Seems like the interest would have been much higher just based off of that datapoint.
