Not enough demand or money to keep it open. Mailorder will make more business sense to keep the CMP marksman program moving forward with its mission of marksmanship.

dnmccoy:

Since people (like Frank Black) are getting worked up by your comments regarding Mr Johnson, where is he quoted or written his feelings down regarding his approaches to the NS?

Please either give me a link or how about we wait and see what he says directly?

Frank:
Unless Mr McCoy can provide a link or something to these comments, calm down and see what Mr Johnson says directly. We will know shortly the direction the CMP is going in................

Anyhow after just asking what was there and starting this thread, I picked up one of the two nice winchester rebuilds with the SA barrels. Of course on the way back I wish I bought both! We all know you can't live in the past and all the should have, could have, would have, etc.. As I was driving home it was fun to remember all the drives to the candy store and coming back with the treats! Paul

You're right that "wait & see" is a better approach, but was expressing irritation @ things read here and there, as well as some indirect remarks overheard while last shopping at the NS.

As far as lobbying the Board to keep the NS open & viable, we might take a lesson from the very dark days of the Clinton years during the AWB, when there was a prevalent antigun mood everywhere.

Funding for the DCM and the operation of the Natl Matches had been cut off in some piece of appropriation bill going thru congress. However, after some rather vocal lobbying by her Port Clinton & NW Ohio constituents, not to mention the NRA & interested Match participants nationwide, Marcy Kaptur, normally a left-liberal on most issues, almost singlehandedly got the funding restored and the Matches continued. Don't like her on most other issues, but she responded to the uproar from this area on the economic impact that suspending the NMs for lack of funding would have had on NW Ohio & the community around Camp Perry.

I realize the specifics of this issue are different, but the gist of the idea is sound - i.e., - lobbying state/federal reps to "send a message" to Bd members that closing the NS isn't a favorably received idea - given that Mr. Johnson serves at the pleasure of the Bd.

The concensus is the incoming CEO does not care for the north store, or camp perry in general.


Mr. Johnson is already hated and is now a ????? , he has not said a word yet on Anything.
Those of you that are "set in your ways". Better love Change because it's coming.!!!!!!!
dnmccoy I was just using your quote, nothing more than that.......

The new shooting complex down south may replace Camp Perry.It makes good business sense to keep the Cmp mission solvent and well financed to support the mission of marksmanship.

There are not enough (nor probably ever will be) shooting points at Talledega to replace Camp Perry.
