Default How to get around "Competitor only sales" at N.S.

Here's a guaranteed "Life Hack" to get around the "Competitor only sales" rule at the North Store :

Enter a Match.


For only $45 you can shoot in a Garand/Springfield/Modern Military/Vintage match, have fun, and be qualified to purchase at the North Store!

Even if you've NEVER competed before, we are ALLOWED to coach in these GSMV matches, and you get "sighters" to start out with! If I'm your scorer, I'll help you with coaching/advice.

It really is worth the money...

Oh yeah, and you get a free t-shirt.

Your welcome.

Actually you just have to register and make your purchase. You donít actually need to show up to shoot. 😂

I’ve been waiting for someone to post how to game the system.

If you are going to go thru the trouble of paying for, signing up and getting your equipment inspected why not take an hour and shoot? You just might like it.

The one problem with the SAFS is it starts before the store is open, and I think it goes till after it closes. I'm hoping to visit the store when I come up early to sign in for it.

If you've bought a rifle from the CMP, and you haven't shot a CMP match, you're doing it wrong.

Not all matches are CMP matches.

I have bought 2 rifles from CMP and have never shot a match. I physically cannot shoot from prone position and that is a requirement.

Great post!

Many Garand buyers do not realize that the mission of CMP is to promote marksmanship, especially for youth. If you are not participating in marksmanship via some capacity, your Garand purchases are simply a source of income. Why not participate in 'living' history and build marksmanship skills while you do so? This gives you the green light to hand pick some very interesting rifles at the NS during Perry Nationals.

TMP has some Garand bench rest matches- seems like a great activity for those with physical limitations. Perhaps there are similar matches in other locations, or grow your own.

No one will complain if you want to shoot the prone phases from standing.

In the context of the nationals and travel games I can say it is a little disheartening when you show up to an event and all the good rifles are gone before you even get off the line. So I agree that equall access should be granted thru the stores and mail order. However, at a competition that should be for the competitors, even if the venue is at/near one of the store locations then close off to non-competitors.
