Default Aquila .22LR "CLUB MEMBERSHIP REQ"?

In the E-Store, the Aquila .22 419ASVGE says in the description "CLUB MEMBERSHIP REQ" and the 419ASVSE says "CLUB REQ FOR PURCHASE."

None of the other ammo I've looked at includes statements like this. Is this the usual club requirement - like GCA, RWVA etc, or does this mean it is being sold only to clubs?

The "thecmp.org/Sales/ammo.htm" page doesn't mention it.

http://www.odcmp.com/Sales/eligibility.htm

"By law, the CMP can sell surplus military firearms, ammunition, parts and other items only to members of CMP affiliated clubs who are also U.S. citizens, over 18 years of age and who are legally eligible to purchase a firearm."

It probably had to be reiterated on the e-store because they probably had a rash of people trying to order 22LR that were not qualified, since it is so scarce throughout the country.

It's also possible that your club membership has expired & they need you to send in a copy of your new card.

Thanks. I'm in the long line for a Garand, and I've ordered a couple of times from the E-Store, so I've got the eligibility part covered.

I thought since they added restrictions like 10 cans of ammo per year and 12 rifles per year, they might have decided to limit sales of .22 as well. But I like your idea better.

Maybe. If your eligibility proof was perishable, you might need to prove continuing eligibility. I'm retired military and that doesn't perish until I do.

My original question is not about if I am eligible for CMP purchases (I am) - it is about if there are restrictions on the sale of the .22 ammo.

Thanks anyway.

I placed an order online for ammo shortly after I mailed my M1 order in, I was denied because it was to soon. After I got the DBU, I was able to order ammo including .22.

Guess the point is, if you want some,place an online order, if you're allowed based on previously submitted documentation, the order will go through

I received my order for the same ammo 9/25/12. I think that the same restrictions were listed at that time. My club afiliation was VFW and AMERICAN LEGION.
I had the same question but placed the order and it went through.
I do not know if any thing has changed since then.
Hope that this helps.

Not entirely true. Their system apparently doesn't let them set indefinite expiration dates so you'll have to send them a reminder to bump it 30 years after you retired. ;-)

I found this out when I was double-checking on why they claimed my membership needed renewal. I figured it happened when I retired and switched from active duty status; they DID renew my membership status but told me I'd have to update it in 30 years ...
