Well, this thread sure run the gamut. One poster wants to shut the CMP down and give everything away, especially to west coast veterans who have had a great injustice done to them by not getting their fair share. Another wants to keep them open but sell everything by description or auction. Yet another wants to auction everything except Garands. And, if you enjoy the stores and are disappointed that they’re closed, well, your just a whiner. Some day this will all be gone regardless of which side of this fence your on now and we’ll all be less well off.

It all comes down to “look what I’ve got”. “My this”, “my that”...It’s what we do, some more/less than others. It ebbs and flows. Perspective... My desire is that we all make it through these difficult times as best as possible. Then everyone can whine and complain about how the stores are set up and toot their horns about what awesome rifles they may have. Be well, God bless....

Miss characterization, out of context quotes and exaggeration is in my not so humble opinion, the same as a LIE.

What you consider miss characterization is my interpretation of what I read. Exaggerated, probably somewhat.”Out of context quotes” in itself is a miss characterization since I didn’t directly quote anyone. Here is a quote out of this thread. “ Honestly, I would rather they give the guns away free to veterans on a lottery basins was than worry about maximum profits or see local buyers make out.” Anyone can read the post and decide if it’s out of context. I see nothing wrong with giving vets a break. The CMP wouldn’t be here long if they gave rifles away. I just don’t see anything wrong with the way the CMP operates. I think a western store would enhance sales and help those so far away.

The CMP already has a West Store. It's in Talladega, AL

Everyone has a different definition of "fair"; almost always one that benefits himself.

For those who think the CMP's job is, or should be, to get firearms into the hands of as many "qualified people" as cheaply as possible, please read the CMP webpage telling us what the CMP is all about:
