M1 Garand article by Mike Blank

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Sir,

I read the article, purchasing an Underwood M1 carbine and 500 rounds of ammo. Haven’t received the ammo yet, but they sent me a beautiful U.S.G.I. carbine.

You have to rely on the “luck of the draw,” however I was extremely pleased. The rifle is about half the weight of an M1 Garand and ammo is cheaper. It does not have the knockdown power of the Garand but suits my needs well.

It took about 7 weeks from the time they received the order until the rifle was delivered to my door.

Thanks for the article.

Ray

 

M1 Garand

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Hi there

I saw your article about obtaining an M1 Garand through the CMP and just wanted to ask you about it.

I have heard about this opportunity for quite sometime and since I have a love for history, especially WWII I think it would be a great honor to own my personal favorite weapon from WWII.  So basically I wanted to ask if you knew if this is still an available opportunity.

I have followed your link to the CMP website to become a member but am unsure how to get going with it. Also, I am a 22 year old. (do you need to be a certain age?)

Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing your tips on how to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity.

Garrett Pifer

Garrett:

The offer is still available and you are old enough to take advantage of it. Just go to the CMP website at and walk your way through the requirements.

Editor, BHM
