I personally would like to see a cost effective entry level M1 Rifle. Say $400 for your first M1 Rifle purchase (that's for a real shooter, not one that was beat like a rented mule) (kind of like once per lifetime). After that, if you wanted another M1 Rifle you would pay the regular price (how they are priced now). Maybe this could be combined with an M1 Rifle clinic and upon completion you would receive a certificate for the purchase of an M1 Rifle for the $400. For new shooters looking to start shooting Garands in the John C Garand match, many are left unable to afford the price of current M1 Rifles. Seeing the attendance drop in the John C. Garand match over the years really bothers me (I'm 45 and it appears that I was one of the younger shooters in the match. I know a lot of us have nice collections of many rifles, but we need more young shooters in this sport. My .02.

Or maybe the posters themselves had second thoughts and deleted on their own.

They are tasked by law with selling them at current value, not $400+ below value. In any case, I suspect there will be very few "new" shooters who benefit from this special low price, but at that price a lot of wives, in-laws, and other family members of current buyers will suddenly take a huge interest in "shooting"

I understand the wives thing. But since the AR15 went to scopes, It seems like we are pricing the next generation right out of this sport. O well, it is what it is I guess.

I have traveled to both stores from here in Utah. You have just as much access to the existing stores as anyone else near an airport.

That said, I am actually a little surprised about the north store not being healthily stocked during matches.

Re: the Next Generation. Given the choice between a $400 Garand or a $1000 iPhone, I'm betting that 99% of that "generation" will take the phone.

Boy, ain't that the truth! CMP's biggest event and people traveling from all over the country and the store isn't stocked to the brim.

The North Store did feature a nice model CMP pen this year. The cups on the tables were full.
