Step 1: Lay down in bed
Step 2: Try not to cry
Step 3: Cry a lot

In all seriousness, it depends on the options the CMP gives those of us who strike out on these carbines. If they think there's a shot they might get another couple thousand in the future, I'd probably be willing to hold out for a while (maybe up to a year). If not, well I guess I can dump $625 into one of my other expensive hobbies I've managed to accumulate over the years.

I'm in the same situation. Will try to get one before the new year. Not sure how quickly the laws will change in this state. It's truly sad when a M1 carbine is considered an assault weapon.

I found a pretty nice 44 Inland carbine on the calguns forum I put in jail (dumb CA 10 day wait) yesterday. After transfer fees, dros, sales tax have to pay here on a CMP a private sale at the right price seemed pretty even in cost.

If I don't get a Carbine, I'd likely put the money into an M1A. If 1903's come out before I buy the M1A, I'd jump all over that.

I'm trying to get a representative collection of service rifles together. Not museum quality, of course. Just representative shooters. I have an 1873 Trapdoor, an 1898 Krag, and an M1 Garand (CMP).

On the more modern (AR) side, I got a surplus M16A1 parts kit (with a semi lower, of course), an A2 and an M4. All of those are the semi-auto civilian versions of course.

So I want the Carbine to go with the M1 and the 1903 would be a great addition after the Krag.

My guess is there are going to be fewer disappointed people than people think, at least for the ones who got their order in on the 1st. I think the CMP under promises and over delivers. Plus they may have received 5000 orders on Monday but not all were for Carbines. Got to look at how many orders are normally received on a Monday and subtract that from the 5000 estimate. May only increase the odds by a little but translates into more people getting their order.

My thought is that the 5000 order received statement was based on an estimate. I just do not see anyone sitting down and counting all of that mail just to see how many there were. Would take a while. I know I would not pay my employees to do it. Just my 2 cents.

If the number is accurate, it could be that the post office gave them a count number. Does the post office do that? I have no idea, but I have to have something to think about while we all wait... lol

Really, the PO does not do a count. The CEO said 5000 orders. But it is really like 10,000 orders. He is keeping your hopes up.

So, do you think only a 10% or 20% chance.

How about your order got there on Tuesday? 0.05% chance.

I'm tired of this specluation on this release.

Guys, let us see how this plays out. Watch the order timeline. Go have another Diet Coke.
