Default EIC Achievement Award Pins made in CHINA????!

Dear CMP
I shot in a EIC Rifle match on 9/17/2010 at Solon Sportsman, Andover, Ohio.
It was a fun, well run, safe match.

I shot well enough to earn a Bronze EIC Achievement Award Pin. I think these pins are a kind of neat. I got one earlier this year that had a tiny CMP logo on the reverse. Looked good.

I looked at the one I received last week, and on the back was no CMP logo, only the word: CHINA .

What the heck?!

China does not have a "Rifle Culture". China is communist and has a TYRANNY culture.

Please don't have CMP marksmanship medals/awards made in China. Spend the extra money to have them made here in the USA. Pass the cost along to me/us.

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun... Let your gun, therefore, be the constant companion of your walks." Thomas Jefferson to Peter Carr, 1785.

Read "War is a Racket" by MG Smedly Butler,USMC. He knew war,and was awarded the Medal of Honor twice. http://warisaracket.org/

I bought a CMP logo coffee mug off the e-store, nice cobalt blue, expected it to say Made in China, but was plesently surprised to see Made in the USA!
I guess if the official USA Olympic athlete uniforms can be made in China........ there's not much in manufacturing that's sacred today.

We can get some great pins, patches, hats, and coins made here in Korea - a strong ally - if we can't get them made in the USA.
