Last week, Cheaper Than Dirt!’s The Shooter’s Log ran an article announcing the U.S. Army’s release of 100,000 M1 Garand rifles to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). Several of you expressed great interest in owning one of these fine, historical shooting pieces and requested that more details to be forwarded along as soon as they became available. Here is the full story straight from the CMP.

Recently, The Shooter’s Log ran a story, detailing President Trump’s order to go a step further than his predecessor and actually release the 100,000 or so 1911s currently being stored by the U.S. Army to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). Several of you left your email and asked to be informed as soon as the CMP began taking orders. While I wish we were reporting that the 1911s were ready for distribution, that’s not the case. However, we have something as good, if not better.
What’s the quickest way to start a fight? Be conservative or liberal, black or white, American, a man, or the easiest way—just be me. Another way to start a fight is declare you have ‘the’ list of the best combat rifles from the last century. So come one, come all! I am challenging all takers to come up with a better list! It’s King of the Hill time, and I am looking for anyone who thinks they have what it takes to knock me off my royal throne.
The M1 Garand owned by John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, is historically significant for many reasons making a review like no other.

We all know the guns, but how many of us also know the story behind the name…
The moniker, “Springfield Armory” has a history all its own going as far back as the Revolutionary War days and is credited with playing a key role in the birth of our country.
Over 25 years ago, Clint McKee started Fulton Armory to build fine M14 rifles, and the business has grown to include selling and servicing all of the U.S. standard-issue gas-operated rifles of the 20th Century: the M14 (M1A), M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, AR-15, and AR-10, as well as virtually everything needed to care for these legendary rifles
Many of us have respectable firearms collections. Some of us collect everything we can get our hands on. Others collect specific guns from different eras, countries, or conflicts. A fellow gun collector had mentioned to me that he wanted to start collecting firearms from World War II. He already stocked his gun safe with an impressive array of useable tools. AR-15s, AKs, shotguns, Remington 700s, half a dozen .22s and a dozen or so handguns from most popular calibers and actions. He said he wanted some historical wall hangers to make his man cave have that certain look that only decommissioned military hardware could command. I enthusiastically agreed and told him I would keep an eye out for some good deals. He was curious about which guns he should pick up first. I laid out a simple road map to get him started. Since he was new to collecting historical models, I kept it simple and told him he should search for the hard-to-find stuff later. It doesn’t take a lot of time or money to get started in collecting World War II battle rifles, and many shooters already own the rifle in the first section.
