Yes, I would agree. A shooter for a good honest price. A wall hanger for more than half that. You do the math.

Supply and demand. How many driller 03's are left in the CMP empire? How many are left "out there" in the drilling world? Not many, I'd bet. they've been selling LOTS of them for a long time. And the question becomes: if the drillers are too much then why not get a regular shooter? Sounds like a number of you would prefer the shooter. So get one and skip the second rate "gun." Maybe we should suggest they stick the drill 03's on the auction site...

Default 03 drills

Hunnerds of thousands. That's kinda the point. Most are shooters. Who wants to put holes in a good 1903? Not me. Wont do that.

With a price that high, they pretty much killed all the demand...they should raise the price of M1s. If its about supply/demand.

They will never lower the price. When is the last time they listened to customers / competitors? Nobody wanted the saftey glasses rule, yet, its still in the books. They are going to do what they want to.

I am firmly in the camp that allows individuals to do as they choose. The only principle that the eye (ear) protection issue brings up is "public burden" ie: the public should not be burdened by an individual's irresponsible act. This is real in the area of seat belts and motorcycle helmets due to the astronomical costs associated with brain and spinal injuries. It is not real in the area of statistically insignificant eye injuries possibly occurring at CMP events. I suspect this is the same old "our lawyers said" argument which seems to affect many of the things we do. I do wonder what would happen if, as the targets come up at CP, everyone held their classes up and no one fired a shot..... Good Shooting. ... BTW--if this rule change is "good", just what has been so "bad" for the last hundred years?? Must be we are "woke" now....

Eye Pro is standard in every US Armed Force now and has been fo quite some time. Not gettin around that. NO PPE and yer gonna pay the price.

Back to drills , $200.00 in AZ, wood for drills and they still beat the price. My last one came with a CMP tag still on it.
