View Full Version : CMP Garand requirements <- FOID?

April 21, 2005, 12:59 AM
I noticed that on the list of prereq's for buying a Garand from the CMP they have "firearms owner identification card". Is this referring to the Illinois FOID? If so, does this mean I can simply sign up for the CMP and buy one right away without having to go through competition?

To elaborate - it listed the "foid" as -one- of the ways you could meet the requirements for purchase (in addition to competition, etc). If so, I might just sign up and pick me up a rifle or two as a wonderfully ironic "F-you" to the Illinois legislature :)

My state does not require us to carry "papers," but they do require a Concealed Weapons Permit to carry a concealed handgun. I used that card as proof of firearms training.

Any firearm owner ID card, not just IL. In MI, we gotta have a pistol permit, and that worked for me.

Oh mama. Once this round of damn AWB bills goes through the IL legislature, I am all over a Garand. Thanks, FOID card!
