Re: Civilian Marksmanship Program
Been dealing with CMP for nearly 10 years now. Not a better friend of shooters anywhere.
I have bought both guns and ammo from them. If you want immediate gratification, CMP is not the way to go. But you will get a very fair deal on some hard to get firearms. Because of there limited manpower, mail orders are always slow, usually months. Their .22 ammo shortage reflects the national problem. Their suppliers are severely limiting their allocations. The thing about CMP is they will fill orders in the order they are received. Before the current supply problems they had .22 in 5000 round lots for about $.02 per round.
If time is important for purchase of firearms, a visit to their stores may be in order.
Check their website and monitor the forums and you will find you are not alone in your frustrations. However, don't blame the organization, they are doing everything they can and have the best customer service you will see anywhere.
