I freakin love cmp. I only live about 45 minutes from the south store in Anniston, AL. If anyone ever rides down to visit them let me know and I'll buy dinner and a beer or 2.

They have some field grade ones for $525. I'd take a Garand for that price, anyday. For about $50 more, you can get a better one, but all of them work.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

Be warned many Field Grades are in need of a rebarrel. I have handled many hundreds of them and alot of the barrels are worn out with Muzzle Wear of 6 or more but still fall within the Grade description
Dont get me wrong if you can handpick Field Grades are worth a look but I would not take a chance on mail order. Yes some guys get nice ones but many are dogs
The next grade up it $625 Service Grade and IMO well worth the extra $100

I would love to take a look at and see if I could find a Garand I would like, but I have zero interest in marksmanship competitions. However, I do plan to get the MS "enhanced" concealed carry permit in the near future; I wonder if that would satisfy their Marksmanship requirement per

that bit from their website? It looks like it would.

You can qualify to buy from CMP by joining the Garand Collectors Association. You get a nice magazine with news about Garands and CMP. I think it is pretty easy and not all that expensive. Check out their web site:www.thegca.org

Joining the GCA only fullfills club membership portion of qualifications you still need proof of firearms handling
While the GCA is a good club and the mag is nice in my opion there are better options if you want cheap club membership
With the GCA their membership runs from Sept -August no matter when you join. If you join today you will only get 4 1/2 months membership for your $25
I recommend the M1 Collectors Club, its only $14 for a full year from the date you join. No magazine ,just good cheap way to fullfill club membership and a much better deal IMO

You do not have to be a competitive shooter to buy from CMP. There are a number of ways for meeting the firearms experience requirement. I use my CCW permit.
The South store is a better choice for shopping. The folks are very helpful.
