Request for Mark Johnson - keep annual limits low on 1911/A1s so more customers can take advantage of this opportunity. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks Obama! Can't wait till I can buy one of these! My Garand would love a 1911 buddy.

Happy Thanksgiving!

At least it's possible. Of course the Army could always decide they need to keep them in reserve for some reason.

I am hoping that it's one per customer.
And it's about time for my wife to "get with the program" (the Civilian Marksmanship Program).

The National Defense Authorization Act limits sales to 10,000/year. If the US Army transfers 80,000 1911s to the CMP you will have plenty of time to get on the waiting list. Not many potential buyers will be willing to wait years for a pistol. If you don't want to wait, there is always Gunbroker or the Library at Cabelas. You will have choices.

10K a year is more than people realize. How many Garands are sold a year?

A limit of 10,000 per year will create a wait-list a mile long, even if they limit it to 1 per person. I can hear the whining now...
"why didn't my order fill? I sent it in the first day."
"It's been 4 years, where's my pistol?"

My only hope is the shooting community forgets about the 1911's by the time they come up for sale.
