Buddy was there today. Picked up an early 42 Winchester FG. 2/2 on the barrel readings. I'll post pics when it gets here.

The CMP COO, Mark Johnson talked to us at the opening of the class. He pretty much reiterated everything that's already posted on the site. They were allotted 8,000 this year and they selected the best available. Everyone that sends in an order will be put into the random number generator and given a number.

That's pretty much all he had to say.

He did add that the last 1911 informational post on the web site generated 450,000 views.

This is an interesting statement... I guess this means they have more than 8k, but as we know only authorized to sell 8k...

True, but not exactly inside info. It's exactly what they posted on the web site.

Stopped by at closing and there was 1 WRA Field Grade M1D Combo in the rack. Mike said it had come back from the Eastern games so he put it on the rack. Looked pretty good.

I was thinking that having an early SA and one of the last SAs would be pretty neat, but three rifles on one trip? I also want to keep my marriage!
The only rifles I have ever regretted were the ones I did not buy.

There have been many times a couple weeks go by and I wonder what the h**l I was worried about and that I should have bought it.

I still do that to this day so just being aware does not mean that I am able to learn
