Default At the store today

I've been to the NS two or three times before, most recently about 2005 or so. The racks then were filled with 100's of rifles, and dozens of woodless barreled actions too, along with multiple types of '03s and '17s.

Went today to pick out a rifle, since I was traveling in the area. I could have done exactly that, since they had exactly one lonely M1 in the Field grade rack. Lots of C's and D's - the guys there said they'd been there a long time, and that they sold the last Service grade a couple of weeks ago.

Those were indeed the 'good 'ol days'.

Guess there is no sense in making the trip after the new year. Not worth it just for ammo

I made a quick stop at the NS yesterday also. When I was there they had 4 field grades. I didn't go to buy a Garand. When I left there were only 2 left on the rack. I did pick up some slings, M7 bayo, a few sealed 1911 mags and a t shirt. I wanted to get another 192 spam can but they said I was at my limit for the year and could not sell me any.

That is a shame.

I nearly made the trip, along with a military buddy and his teenage boys.

I nearly convinced myself that CMP would put a little effort into stocking the tracks with a few rifles, the week before Christmas. After all, this is a time when more people have time off from work, and spending it with family.

Put out a nice selection during the week w/ some back stock, limit one rifle per person for the week before X-MAS (so locals don't buy everything up… especially the gunshow hummers). Heck, even advertise it. If I knew such an event would take place, I know that I could drum up a a few current/ex military members for a road trip (while we all have a little time off to coordinate such a trip). Wouldn't that be cool for the CMP?

Just a thought.

I wonder what happened to the 5% discount on in-store ammo purchases?

The price increase on ammo varies depending on the ammo. Free shipping in continental US. Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico will get a credit to help with the outrageous shipping cost (call for instructions). Call it what you want but it is a price increase on ammo and now we offer free shipping. If you choose to purchase and pick up ammo in the stores you will receive a 5% discount and pay the applicable sales tax.
