CMP to receive 86,000 Philippine Garands

BREAKING: Civilian Marksmanship Program to Receive 86,000 M1 Garand Rifles from the Philippines

The Civilian Marksmanship Program has received confirmation that the Philippine government will be shipping 86,000 M1 Garand rifles back to the United States for distribution to American civilian shooters. Gina Johnson, General Manager of CMP South in Alabama, confirmed the upcoming delivery with the administrators of the M1 Garand Enthusiasts Group Facebook page:

Charles Baker just to clarify…CMP will be receiving the rifles once the Philippines prepares them for shipment. CMP only has to pay the transportation cost of getting these rifles back as they have with every other shipment sent to us. We do not know when these rifles will be shipped back, but they have been approved.

It's widely known the supply of Garands at the CMP have been dwindling.  This news is a great tidbit to use when 7th stepping!   :)

"The cost of a thing is the amount of life required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run. When one has obtained those essentials necessary for well-being — food, shelter, warmth, and clothing, there is an alternative to struggling through steel jungles for the luxuries. That’s to adventure on life itself, one’s vacation from humble toil having commenced.” -Townsend Whelen

Glad to have located the stack of rifles. Now to locate the stack of money.

This has meaning to me.  There's a good possibility a not-so-distant relative may have used one of these...
"5 minutes for this stage - that's like a week in people years!"

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

"Scoring is a function of great execution, and winning Is the result, but thinking about winning can pull your focus off of proper execution in a competition. Thinking about process is the answer."- Lanny Bassham

Mine too.  I never thought about it before this weekend, but we're searching my grandfather's records to see if there is any reference to his rifle serial number.

WWII vet, wounded twice in the Philippines.  He was a tough guy, but wouldn't know it by looking at him.  Their generation was something special, I believe.
