I don't think .gov or .mil wants to be associated with civilian arms sales.

Yes and look at the lengths both have gone to in the last two decades in order to distance themselves. THe CMP is going to be out of biz pretty soon unless they let them sell M14s anyways.

Not saying it is right/wrong, just that it has more to do with incentives than trust.
I don't believe that. If that were true, then we wouldn't have a machine gun ban. We would still be permitted to purchase a new machinegun built in 2009 rather than be limited to those constructed pre-86. The government doesn't mind giving handouts to millions of people...but sell its citizens a used gun, FORGET IT! Yeah, our Government really trusts us.

I was speaking more about their motivation to sell/loan to other countries. It is not because they trust those other countries, at least in most cases.

I won't try to further explain my point as I think it was made pretty clearly.
