So you are saying you don't have to be an active participant in one of the clubs as long as you pay the dues and can prove you have some sort of firearms experience? I really have no desire to participate in matches or anything like that but would love to be able to buy the M1's if I felt like it. Also I noticed there is a CMP club right here in my hometown, but membership is closed? What's up with that?

Yes under the old DCM rules you had to be a competitive shooter and go thru M-1 classes on care and maintenance. In the CMP purchases you need to prove you are a U.S. Citizen have experience with a firearm such as a concealed carry permit pass a BG check etc. It is really easy. They also ship to your front door no FFL fees. You may also place more than one order.

Problem is if I drop my daughter off at cedar point with all those roller coasters I'll never be able to drag her away again.

I am about 2 hours away from there, have heard about Camp Perry all of my life but never looked into it at all.

90% of my shooting has been trap with some black powder pistol mixed in. Thinking about getting more into rifles and I am just starting my research.

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

I'm not seeing a problem here. More range time for you.

Then there's no excuse for you not to attend their summer training program over a weekend. I really want to try to do this (both pistol and rifle), but it will probably be booked by the time I can get my calendar worked out.

There anything that doesn't cost money to join that qualifies? Or some place else sell them that doesn't make you jump through hoops?

The American taxpayer has paid a fortune for these rifles. I think anyone who is serious about owning one of the firearms can afford a small fee and a few minutes of their time.

More the point than the cost. What would you say if walmart told you you had to bring a receipt from mcdonalds proving you bought a cheeseburger to b allowed to purchase raw hamburger? See what I'm getting at? It's about money not gun safety or experience.....

Compare the CMP prices to any gun shop.

That borders on ridiculousness. We are not Walmart shopping our pricing cheeseburgers. This is one hell of a deal for anyone wanting an M-1 Garand. As posted try buying one at a gun show for these prices?

Just asking if there's any place else selling them because i don't agree with their requirements. Not saying they're a bad company by any means
