    LATEST CMP SALES NEWS:

    ORDER BACKLOG. Normally, we average receiving 2,000 - 3,000 sales orders per month and ship an order in 2-3 weeks. However, these are not normal times. Since October, 2008 we have been receiving 5,000 - 10,000 orders per month, which is several times normal. As a result, we are very backlogged and running several weeks behind on processing orders. Our staff is working up to 12 hours per day 7 days a week, and only today finished the 4,000 orders we received on 1 December alone (except for those 1 Dec orders with credit card or other problems). Customers with outstanding orders should expect orders to ship approximately 100 days from the date the order was received by CMP. We expect to recover from this surge in another 3-4 months (assuming the number of orders being received drops somewhat).

    :rofl: I'm guessing they received my order later this week. It's ok though, i would rather have a 3 month wait so i don't feel bad about dropping another $1000

    Why before the 15th? We can't just drive over there and get one?

    CMP STORES CLOSED 15-31 MARCH, 2009. In addition to the heavy volume of mail and estore orders, the shopping activity at both stores has been significantly higher than last year. As a result, we have had to divert more sales staff than planned from processing mail orders on the days the store is open. Both CMP stores will be closed 15-31 March. The Sales staff at both locations will work on processing mail orders in an effort to quickly reduce the backlog and shorten delivery time.

    Yes, you pick out the rifle you want and either take it with you (and pay 8% sales tax) or let them ship it to you.

    I'm stocking up. Already have 6 cans on order, and from the sounds of it the Greek ammo isn't going to be gone for good once they sell out.

    WTF are people buying garands like crazy? Of the things to ban, garands are pretty low on the priority list.

    Don't shoot commercial 30-06 ammo through a Garand, unless you buy an adjustable gas tube.
