Thumbs down

Oh God....not again. Please Moderators, lock this. I suggest you all do a search of this topic. It was put to rest WAAAAYYYYY back in September. The Executive Order has no effect whatsoever on CMP. This was announced by Orest and the GCA during the GCA Convention. Orest personally showed me a notice from the CMP Legal Staff indicating it would have no effect on their ability to receive rifles from the Army...which, BTW, is where CMP gets them. From the Army and private donations.

CMP does not import the rifles they sell and they are not an importer. Nuff said.

Oh, and let's not start bringing up the infamous Korean Garands again ready to be imported (actually waiting to be sold by Korea) but can't be.

get back to me when CMP gets a new shipment of rifles from overseas.
Perhaps laughable to the uninformed but to the informed it is completely true in actual fact. CMP does not import rifles from anywhere and they receive no rifles except through the Army/DOD and private contributions.

"get back to me when CMP gets a new shipment of rifles from overseas"
Don't hold your breath, CMP doesn't ever get any rifles directly from overseas. You could have a long wait.

If you want it locked so badly why did you prolong it by adding two posts?

Priorities: The moderators are still searching through the list of members with a fine toothed comb in order to see if anyone still has the CMP Customer tag under their name. I placed a sales ad which apparently did not meet specs and it was removed within three minutes! Like I said...Priorities!

Don't hold your breath, CMP doesn't ever get any rifles directly from overseas. You could have a long wait.
So, basically, Larry, what your saying is that there won't be an increase in the number of Carbines or M1s or such with import marks on them. Not to make light, but from the perspective of most folks on this forum, a good thing? I don't know anyone that actively seeks the dreaded Blue Sky or Federal Ordnance Garands... I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that my one and only carbine has a CAI import mark (albeit small and somewhat carefully done)

I think this thread started off poorly. A guy with 4 posts trolls the forum to try and stir things up. Except he fails to understand that the pathetic executive action, that from what I can tell, was just done to provide a pathetic politcal blurb, has no real bearing on our vintage shooting activities. (Do not misinterpret me, I am not in support of such an action.)

We'll live another day, and there are a heck of a lot of Garands, and other firearms, floating around right now. I don't see this action as the thrust of the important rights issues on the table.

In all honesty, most of the poeople on here ought to have a sparkly tag next to their name reading "CMP Degenerate," myself included.

"Helping the CMP- Contact you representatives "

Pretty sure Orest has said in the past that CMP doesn't need that kind of "help".
