ENTER NOW - WESTERN CMP GAMES AND CREEDMOOR CUP. The CMP and Creedmoor
Sports of Oceanside, California announce that their two major west coast
competitions, the Western CMP Games and the Creedmoor Cup Matches, have now
joined forces. On 5-13 November 2005, they will offer highpower rifle
competitors of all skill levels nine full days of clinics and match shooting
at Camp Pendleton, California. The Western CMP Games Garand, Springfield and
Vintage Military Rifle Matches that took place for the first time this past
May at Camp Pendleton will lead the week with a clinic on Saturday, 5
November. That will be followed by two days where competitors can shoot John
C. Garand, Springfield or Vintage Military Rifle Matches. On 8 November,
competitors can fire in an experimental “as-issued” EIC match. The Creedmoor
matches begin with a highpower NMC clinic on 9 November. That is followed by
a Creedmoor Practice Match on Thursday, Creedmoor Long-Range Matches on
Friday, the Creedmoor Cup Match on Saturday and a team match on Sunday. Many
top military and civilian shooters already plan to attend. An impressive
list of valuable awards and door prizes will be presented. The CMP will be
on hand with several hundred surplus U. S. military rifles to be inspected
and tagged for purchase. It promises to be a great week of shooting on one
of the country’s great shooting ranges. Check out the combined match program
at http://www.odcmp.com/Competitions/WesternGames.htm. Then go to the CMP
web site at http://clubs.odcmp.com/cgi-bin/matchInfo.cgi?matchID=958 and

our own use, we will once again get into the parts sales business, but this
won't be for at least two years, at the earliest.

Supply and demand.
The price is going up and the quanity, quality, and accessories are going down.
Still they are selling below "market value"
I spoke with a fellow who had bought a case of the Greek M2 Ball, and he said it was pretty good stuff.
