I am wanting to get my hands on a CMP Garand, but I have not been able to find any affiliated clubs in the south metro area. I have checked the CMP website for a list of clubs, but can't find phone numbers for them in the phone book. I have checked with several local ranges, but the only clubs they know of are through VFW's, which I don't qualify for, since I was not in the military. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Brad

Brad, I've done the same thing. The only CMP affiliated range I know of for sure is the Oakdale gun club, which is on the other side of town from me, and their waiting list is over a year long. BTW, I live in the southern metro also. The Minneapolis/metro area definitly is not gun friendly. Let me know if you find a CMP range. I'll do the same.

Thanks for the info Mach1. I will keep on looking. There HAS to be some other CMP affiliated clubs in our area.

I have a CAI Garand, but I am really wanting to get my hands on a USGI rifle. I hate to have to pay the $800 for one at a gunshow, though.

I want a Garand, myself. If we keep this topic on top of the page, we might get lucky and have someone in our area help us out.

Later...

Contact the Richfield American Legion. They have a range south of Burnesville where I'm told they do CMP.

You don't need to have served in the armed forces to join, but your father or grand father must have.

All right. I'll try the Richfield American Legion. My father was in the reserves. Hopefully that will count. If not, I'll have to keep looking.

Thanks,

Brad
