I'm heading up to Port Clinton next week to pick up an M1 Garand. I have joined the Garand Collectors Association and have a copy of my birth certificate. I however do not have a certificate from any type of Marksmanship activity. I downloaded the PDF from their website and took it to a local range where the RSO initialed in all the sections and signed off on it for me after I fired 50 rounds. Is this considered acceptable to fulfill that requirement with just the RSO's initials and signature? I just want to make sure before I make the drive up there.

Thank you,

It may be enough, but the sure way to find out is to call the CMP.

There are also good answers to be had at the CMP forum. CMP folks respond to questions all the time there.

Good luck with your purchase, it will lead to more.

It worked for me at a local indoor range.

ETA - I went to the South Store for my purchase.

Not sure what you are shopping for with respect to M1 Garands but the North Store is pretty much all M1C and M1D snipers and the CMP Special (rebuilt M1 from parts w/ new barrel + new wood).  No SG, FG or RG in stock.

Thank you guys, I called while I was at work today and they said that what I have is fine. I asked him about what they had in stock and he listed exactly what you said except only .308 specials are in stock. I was also told they were expecting a shipment, I may try to make it up there for that if summer semester hasn't started.

Either wait to go to the North Store until the matches this summer or mail order.Personally I would place a mail order for a Service Grade. The selection at the stores has been nothing but dissapointing in the last few years
