Default What is needed to purchase at NS?

I plan to drive up from Columbus to the NS this Thursday for my first visit to the CMP store.

I searched the CMP site and found this in the FAQ:

"You can fax or email documentation to us ahead of time if you want to purchase items through our eStore or if you want to get an account set up in anticipation of making a purchase at one of our stores."

Since I have purchased online previously and have an account, is there any paperwork/documentation should take with me in order to purchase a rifle?

Thanks Plumber.
That is what I thought but did not want to make the drive only to find out that I could not purchase a rifle because I had forgotten something that is not documented on the site (or did not know the secret handshake).

Drills: couple 03a3's had FS blades, stocks generally on the lower scale, but serviceable, A few were painted black so there's no telling how good/bad they are under the paint.Generally sorta complete. DG's: at least one had some (weak) cartouche, some lock bar-RS's.

I was looking at one with a SA/GAW stock but the receiver had a bad repark job. There were some FGs with good barrel measurements but most measured over 2 MW. To me it looked like many of the 40s dated barrels were added by the CMP or some armory. Basically the rifles were what you would expect for a FG. For me, I would only buy one I could hand pick at the store.

Most of the drill rifles were in rough shape but there were a couple in better condition. I did not see a stock that was worth buying. Basically you would be getting a stock that is rough, a trigger assembly, a rear sight assembly, an op rod, and a front sight for $380. If they were $250, I would consider it but $380 is too high. For some of those drill rifles, I can't see anyone ever buying them even at a much lower price.

The Winchester specials had serial numbers in the 1m and 2m serial number range. None less than 1m. I did not notice any Win-13s. No Winchester bolts. I think they all had post war SA bolts. Only saw one with a Winchester op rod.

They had a couple of racks of SA M1C rifles. Did not see any with a scope mount with a matching serial number. They all had a dark black park. A couple with really good barrels and a couple with more worn barrels.

I did not look at anything else. Not a lot of ammo leaving the store so you should have the spam cans available next week.

The FG I bought was a rebuild with an interesting stamp on the barrel.
