I was getting the busy signal for twenty-eight minutes until I got through. Just keep at it.

I just got through! Appointment time is June 4th at 1:30pm.

Does anyone know how many people there will be in store at a time?

I got June 4th at 11:30am

Started non-stop calling between 7:58am and 8:40am on my cell phone finally got thru. The lady on the line did not seem to think there were any store limits aside from the 8 Garands per year, but maybe that will change?

She also said she is (for now) limiting customers to 6 per 30 minute block. So that means 36 customers will be able to shop before I get there. I'm beginning to wonder whether I should have made my appointment for first thing Friday or Saturday instead. I hope the store does at least a couple of re-stocks.

CMP has about a week to truck more Garands north, but with South Store open on the 4th, and Talledega Store open now, and with mail orders backlogged, I'm not sure what kind of stock we will be seeing after the first few days.

Hopefully this appointment system will go away in a couple of months, but at least it will be interesting for now.

I just want a 1903....wonder if that's a possibility, or if I'm wasting someone else's appointment time!

I snagged a 10:30 appointment on the Fourth. I hope there aren't 24 Garand hoarders in front of me.
