Yes, my wife is a lifetime NRA member and enthusiast also. She's never been interested in military rifles, so this is her first experience with the CMP. I doubt there is much chance for either of us given the numbers, but I did get lucky on the carbines when some came available last-minute... so why not try? Worst that can happen is - nothing. :-)
