Hopefully soon I will be there rummaging around through those crates! As soon as my C&R arrives and the South Store opens in June for people to walk in and choose their own Garand....I'm there! :D

The Fed Ex Man came and picked up my Garand today, I left a note for them to try and fix the barrel if possible or to cherry pick me one that is just as nice, I have a case of Greek surplus on the way, I cant wait to do some more shooting with it.

How cool would that be, working with and on Garands every day. I'd love to rummage around that warehouse.

They also keep CRATES of brand-freakin'-new BAR, Thompson, 1911, water cooled and air cooled 30-cal Brownings and probably even a few like new "Ma Deuce" at the Anniston Armory. How'd I'd LOVE to get into a couple of those crates! I think it was on the History Channel show "Tales of the Gun" about the American weapons of WWII, and they went to the Anniston Armory and cracked open a few crates for the cameras.

I'm pretty sure that they also have quite a few crates of brand new, still-in-the-factory-wrapper Garands, too. I'm not sure why they're holding those back...probably to drive the price of like new Garands up even more ;)

The museum at aniston is totaly seperate from CMP. The one shown on the history channel is where the army keeps all it's museum pieces it uses for displays. So the ones there wont be for sale, they are loaned to military/government orginizations for displays etc. They said they were very careful to use the appropriate period weapon for the display i.e. a D Day display would not have garands with post war features etc. Man would I love to see what all they have in that warehouse.

Has my name written all over it! What?!?! You didn't see it?? Go back and look again! See it now? No? That's because it has been boxed and is waiting to ship to me!
