This is all I can find that proves this is true. I asked my original question in the various Facebook groups I am in and of the many people responding, this is the only one that had any "proof".

He posted this photo.


Buy I can't get anyone to post a link from the CMP...

Something sounds fishy here...

Someone at the Oklahoma games posted what they were told. The CMP was mostly likely left with no option but to get out in front of it.

Hey, but now you know right?
True and I'll bet they would have rather waited until they were received and a sampling of condition known. Simply because now they will be inundated with when and how questions as well as rumors.

Hopefully these rifles will be in decent condition. And hopefully CMP will be able to keep the cost low so more individuals who wish to have a Garand will be able to afford one. And perhaps they will keep the 8 rifle maximum in place (or lower it). This is fun to watch. I wonder if they had any ammunition to go with the rifles....🙄

Maybe a "buy 2/get one free" promo? Got that on my cat litter yesterday.

Now this is odd... 1 of the posts I made in those various Facebook groups I mentioned earlier was deleted and the other I just linked to above just had an admin turn off comments on... Did I stumbled upon something that wasn't tone posted about by the Firearms Blog who posted this originally?

I don't understand the need for secrecy. The best way to dispel rumors and end speculation is to be informative. The only reason I can come up with is CMP doesn't want to upset the anti-gunners in our government.

The same goes for the "make no waves" rules on this board. To pretend there is no disagreement between us is, in my opinion, disrespectful to us as adults.

The CMP folks monitor their PR heavily through social media...and apply influence as required.
