I went to one of kraigwy's Garand and Vintage Military CMP shoots last summer.From this,I received a Certificate of Participation.(satisfies requirement)
Later,I signed up for a Lifetime Membership to thje Wyoming State Shooters Association.I live in Colorado,but chose Wyoming because I respect the work WSSA has done for Wyo handgun carry.(satisfies requirement)
Approx Dec 1 I sent my order for one CMP Special M-1 Garand,fully reconditioned with a new Criterion barrel.
Dec 5 I received acknowledgement of my order.
I figured out I had botched the "last name first,first name last" on my 1A form.
An e-mail to their customer service resulted in very rapid response,problem solved,and it was done in a friendly way.
Dec 22 I recieved my rifle and I am quite pleased with it.
My public "Thank You" to the CMP.Merry Christmas!
