I'll buy something else with them money.....like more M1s, or if 1917/1903A3/1903 come back, or 1911s.

At 44 years old I'm still relatively new to firearms; I only have a few. The funds for such endeavors are pretty low. Despite that fact, when I told my wife about the release, she said OK if you say it's a good deal, we have some room on this credit card. I've built it up and talked about it quite a bit, showed her the stack of mail the CMP received and floated the "5000 orders for 2000 rifles" by her, so she knows I wasn't full of BS that it was a good deal. I think regardless of whether I get one from this batch, I'll come out of this with a carbine - whether it's via remaining on backorder with the CMP or buying one from a LGS or through the forum. It has to happen at this point - I already bought accessories and an owners' guide!

Default Coming to terms

This is the next option save for one more of these:

What will you do?

* Convert your order to a SG or FG M1 Garand?
* Do nothing?
* Scratch that itch via a private sale?

Personally, I have a couple carbines and would most likely re-direct the funds into a nice Remington M1903 example.

In this current environment, add reloading and ammo components.

Work on my gun "bucket list" Mann accuracy device, Remington 81 in 300 savage, WWII Luger, and a Marlin model 50, and,..and,...and,...

Default Wait and see

I sent an order in with the hopes of another Carbine.
I had participated in the "Italian" returns and was MOST pleased to have been able to purchase a few of them. My cousin is a Carabineri Officer in the Honour Guard and had told me what was in the works and I was excited about obtaining some of these knowing how well the Italians had cared for them.
I was not disappointed !!
Sadly I hesitated for awhile thinking I had time to complete my collection of manufacturers and missed out on a few of them.
So I was hoping I might pick up one again.
I also have 5 kids and wanted them each to have a rifle. My girls let me have it when I wasn't including them in the purchases of rifles. When I took my older daughter to the matches in 2011 with 2 of the boys she was all of 15 years old and scored very well in the M-16 and carbine matches scoring better than my 2 boys!!!!!
We had a fun time with awesome instructors and she was a magnet for a lot of the other kids around her age and she has asked to go back again ever since!!!

Do nothing. Be happy yet a bit disappointed that I updated my notary and club information and wait out the 1911s while saving almost $700.

Fingers still crossed for my first ever Carbine.

I'd hold off spending any more funds. Something good will pop up this year, either 1911s or if the 1903 rumors are true one of those. Or for giggles I'll put in for a FG later this year. Never seems to be a problem finding something to spend money on.

I don't have one, but I'm going for a real WWII era carbine no matter what . There is legislation in my state that is going to classify the m1 carbine as an assault rifle if it passes. So it could be banned or a bunch of extra hoops/fees can be added.
