The update is greatly appreciated. Thank you for the fine job you and your staff are doing on this.
At 17K, that is about a third of what I was expecting you to receive. Looks like there might, just maybe, be another go around if the Army and Congress are appeased and continue to release more 1911s in the future.

17,000 and not everyone one will be correct and some discarded.....

If there was 8,000 guns for lottery the odds are pretty decent.
I will of course get # 16,999

In the grand scheme of things does it matter? They will get what they get from the government, and those without a doubt will be sold. Even if they only got 17,500 packets this go around, they are not limited to selling 17,500 pistols.

My understanding is that got 8000 for FY18. FY19 started on Oct 1, so they might be getting more soon.

Thanks for the update Admin! I have been checking in periodically the past several months and must say I have had a few chuckles over the entire process, mostly from the good natured remarks from you!

You gotta have a sense of humor to deal with all the knuckle heads that walk around among us. I'm not sure if I got everything correct in my packet or not, but I certainly had plenty of time to make sure I did.

I was part of the recent carbine release and wasn't among the lucky to get drawn, though I do think I was in the hunt as my packet was received during the first day or two before they stopped accepting packets. I'll never know how close I came.....I feel much better about how this pistol release is being handled, giving everyone as equal a chance as possible. Letting us all know where we stand in the draw line is great too. Takes all the nail biting and gnashing of teeth away as well wondering if you're going to get drawn.

Looking forward to the results!!
