Default Any one have a report? Considering a loooong trip.

Thinking of heading down next week, its a 23 hr/1436 mile round trip. I'll say up front, financially its not worth it, especially if I can only buy 1 M1 per day. Id try to hit it two days to atleast buy two rifles. IHC gap letters if they have any or any other SG or FG' they may have and yes I've seen pickings have been slim.

I just picked up a RG special at the North store but im only allowed one per 30 days here and I head home to Ca on the 14th. I should of had my wife go to pick one out for herself, just don't have her shooting proof with us, not sure if they take her retired military ID?

On vacation in Cleveland area, wifes likes a couple days alone with her mom, I normally head to one of the south stores to bag my remaining limit, I love to drive, but these buying limits are killing it for me. My next opertunity will be a year from now.

My retired military ID is all I use, so she should be fine. Of course, you can always double-check by calling the North Store to confirm that's all the documentation she needs.

Hello Brian. We met on your last trip. I would expect there is a restock for the D Day Match. Had planned to drive up fron Pensacola, but just picked up an 03 locally and a nice H&R 65 on GB. Wife says I have to wait a couple months. Good luck in your travels.

I would also bet there will be a re-stock for the match for two reasons: 1) there is a recent pattern of match-timed re-stocks, 2) it's hard to imagine a D-Day themed match with an empty store.

Don't believe that has been the case in the past. Sure there will a number of spectators in attendance.
