Bugsy Siegel was shot with a 30-30 lever action I was informed from the History Channel,Marlin or Winchester they didn't tell us.I can bring up many stories on the M1 Carbine doing allot of killing. Ask Bugsy Seagal about the one he took to the head when they killed him with the 30 cal Carbine. Ask Audie L. Murphy how he loved his. It is still a weapon and I wouldn't want to take a shot from one even in super heavy clothing. Rick B
Well, I guess that's your opinion. The orignal intent of the CMP was to train as many people as possible in marksmanship. I don't think selling a person 12 rifles in one year is the best way to keep in line with that original goal.The limit thing has been beat to death many many times. Bottom line is CMP is in buissness to sell rifles, ammo ,etc to raise funds to promote shooting sports. If they find someoen who is buying rifles just for nothing more than resale they do stop them from purchasing anymore. They don't sell dozens to one person a year the limit is 12 which is one dozen. Its better to get them in the hands of civilians no matter who is getting them than being destroyed ny the governmant.One reason there were so many parts on E-bay was from the woodless Danes. People would buy a few WD scavenge the parts to make a correct rifle, selling off parts they didn't need. Just because you waited and sat around to long to get a Garand I should only be allowed to buy one rifle a year? I don't think so CMP has been around for years and advertise in a few differnt gun mags, if you missed the boat its your own fault,
Well, when they sell something for 4 or 5 hundred dollars and then someone takes it to a gunshow and sell it for a few hundred more, in my opinion that is selling below market value.Selling them less than market value? Man thats the first time I have heard that. OK for the next batch of Garands coming out I'm sure they will raise the price then you can complain about that to!
