CMP M1 Garand Ammunition
When we bought our M1 Garand Rifles
from the Civilian Marksmanship Program, the CMP also offered us the chance
to purchase some ammunition as well. The price was right so we took them up on
it and bought as much ammo as they would let us have!
This page and the following pages
serve mostly as a repository for photographs of what we ended up with.
When the CMP sold us our M1 Garand
s they allowed customers to also buy one 280-round case of 30-06 caliber ball
ammo as well as one 400-round case of 30-06 caliber match-grade ammo. Since we
had bought two CMP M1 Garand Rifles we decided to fully exercise our options and
get all four boxes.
A couple of weeks
later, (after our initial M1 rifle purchase had been approved), a knock came on
the door and a rather nervous looking FedEx driver brought four tightly wrapped
boxes to our foyer.
suppose I can forgive the driver for her slight concern. The boxes were marked
with 'dangerous materials' stickers and 'hazardous material manifests' were tucked
into the glassine pockets. Of course the driver probably thought we were middle
eastern arms dealers since 'Cartridges Small Arms' was clearly on another prominent
sticker and the boxes were HEAVY.
giving the driver a sedative and hypnotizing away the psychological damage inflicted
by having to carry such wicked cargo it was time to open the shipping boxes...
