Thankfully not, and a great suggestion.

A lot of people have a hard time getting to the Stores - and deserve a chance at the rifles allocated to them.

I agree to that to an extent, but how long is reasonable for a "chance"? If they have a mailed in order in hand, and rifles unpurchased on the rack after a week...

I only ask as I sent in an order for a SG, and just wonder if SGs they'd get pulled for mail orders at this point.
I wasn't paying real close attention because I wasn't in the market for one, but it seems like they were mostly SG's. One that Harold showed me was a Win with a Rem barrel and the bore was shiny and spotless.

I once worked with a guy that had an expensive golf habit - he would be out on the fairway two or three times a week with his buddies - in addition, he and his buddies would take a weekend road trip three or four times a year in the fall so that they could include a college football game in the festivities. At the end of the year the guy had nothing to show for that habit other than personal satisfaction - which is fine if that's what cranks his tractor and his wife doesn't give a damn. But at the end of the year there's less money in the bank and it will never be recovered.

On the other hand - a habit that consists of acquiring stuff like collectible firearms or motorcycles or whatever else that other folk enjoy acquiring and the habit keeps a body at home enjoying the habit (rather than off on some golf junket doing God-knows-what with God-knows-whom) has got to be the better deal - especially since when the person with the acquisition habit croaks then his widow gets to sell all his crap (hopefully at something close to market price - he needs to make sure that the potential widow knows what to do with all his crap) and enjoy the investment profit of his habit.

Don't pay any attention to me - I'm in a foul mood tonight.

Having said that - given that it will take two to three weeks to work through the mail orders, if there any needed rifles in either store at that time (two or three weeks), they should probably be shipped out.

Alexander, there is a flip side.....are you sure you would want what was left over in the store....at least with the "luck of the draw" you have a chance at a decent weapon....if the CMP sends you what is "left" at the store (that no one else would buy)....not so sure I would like that!! If they called me and said, "do you want a floor model?" I would pass!! I would vote to leave it as it is...If they still had stock in the back...ok.
But Orest said that they only had KRAGs in the back and not on the floor.

I was there Saturday also and was told they were not going to pull inventory from the store to fill mail order. They allocated a certain amount to each store and mail order and they would stay there until sold. This is at least what I was told. I was mostly looking at .22 but can give a report on anything in the store if someone wants.fficeffice" />>>

Those painted stocks are going to make some unbelievably rewarding projects.

2 of these 4 were painted VFW rifles; all are from the SS last time they were offered.
