How come only a CMP North store?

Why not a CMP South store, so I could take a quick drive to, say, Georgia, to feed my addiction?

And a CMP West store for our left-coast friends...

That is great news, thanks! I'll start buying the wife a few things to butter her up before I go on a shopping trip

I am holding off on any Garand purchases waiting for the South Store to open. I really want to go through the racks and drool over some SGs before I run through the RGs and buy a couple.

Correct me if I am wrong. But I think they are going to open a store in Anniston Ala. by mid summer of this year.

Why wait? E-mail CMP south and ask to volunteer for a day at CMP south and they allow you time to hand pick your order (Within reason! They do not allow you to pick through every box of rifles). I went last year and have scheduled another day this year.

I was sent to swab bores after test firing five racks of Garands and later cleaned up a few 1903's to be taken to a match.

All the folks are super nice!

You want to know crazy? I live 13 miles from the north store, and if they get a south store I'll drive down to check it out! Is that bad or what!

Huh? Us Southern boys (and girls) have more guns than you Yanks anyway!

Thirteen miles? Shoot, I live near Nashville so Anniston is about 3 1/2 hours away. Sounds like a road trip to me!

Anniston may not open this year

The last I heard Anniston won't open this year, but you may have heard something different than me or more recently. Anyway, when the South store opens, I intend to be on hand for the opening, even if I have to retire. As for trusting the Southerners with all those guns, you all may have heard hostilities were recently ceased...just in case the news has been slow getting around on the forums. Seriously, I went to the North Store recently and visited all across the great state of Ohio and could not have enjoyed anything more. The folks at Port Clinton were great and I am looking forward to another trip there very soon. I love the South and I'll never leave, but this is one great country and Ohio is another great state to enjoy.

I've been thinking about moving back to Birmingham. If they open up the South Store soon, then I definately will.
By the way, we already have a lot of guns. We're just trying to decide what's the best time to reopen hostilities.

My wife has got this 7 passenger stretched Chevrolet Trail Blazer. I'll just start from Fremont and pick you guys up on the way down! Hate to leave her with the keys to my Lightning though!

Got to make sacrifices for a "road trip".

Yup, Anniston. I'd heard it would be open this summer, but now I'm wondering when it will open.
