Default New member, old CMP shopper...

I usually just monitor the CMP emails and only go to the site now and then. When I got the notice of the D models up for sale I had to bite. I noticed the forum and here I am. I bought my first M1, a collector HRA back in 1998 and had to wait two years for it. My second was a select grade SA dated 3-44, same month and year as me and rebuilt as a new rifle. It also took two years to receive. I ordered a 1903 and a 1903Mk1 and two M44 Mossys and lots of ammo since then. My wife will kill me when the D hits the credit card. She said no when I brought it up......chris3

Do like my wife does to me. Get it, hide it for about 6 months, then bring it out. If she says something, just say " Oh this...I got this awhile back, don't you remember me telling you about it? " LOL

Welcome to the forum!
I always break out the newly aquired rifles, for cleaning/refinishing, the same day I go to the range. To my wife it looks like I must be working on the rifle I just shot. She must think I'm "nuts", to be completely stripping "the same rifle", and coating the stock with 4 coats of tung oil over and over again! (got 2 more arriving tomorrow!)

The problem is, the CMP ships Fed-x. Fed-x hits my street at 10-11 am. I am at work then and the wife is getting ready to leave for work at noon. I am toast. She will spot the cc bill long before the rifle gets here....dead meat....She knows what I have. She goes shooting with me all the time. And, when there is a good war movie on, I pull out the correct rifle...chris3
