Nice, please post pics when you get 'em. I love seeing new Garand pics. I've also heard/read the same thing about the HRAs coming out of CMP.

Hey congrats on the order. I did the same thing and ordered 2 HRAs last Friday. I hope the process our orders before any new year price increases. Keep us updated on the shipment progress and post pics when they arrive.

I believe your California HSC card will work for the safety requirement! So if you purchased a handgun in this state then you already have the req met!

The HRA Garands for $625 are very nice. Another really good CMP deal is the Kimber 82G single-shot 22lr target guns, sold as 'rusty' but mine was perfect.

Congratulations! Did you order the HRA Service Grade or the HRA Service Grade Special with new wood? I was thinking about doing the same thing, one for my wife and one for me, but haven't decided which way to go (maybe one of each?).

Quick question. If i have my 03 FFL do I still need to be part of a CMP affiliated association or is that only good for marksmanship/firearm related program?

You still need to be a member of a 'CMP affiliated association'. The CRPA is an affiliated association here in CA.

The 03FFL covers the safety cert needed. But yes you'll still need a club membership. GCA is good to go.

So CRPA and an HSC means good to go? I thought (not sure why) that you had to have a certain amount of competition appearances in official matches.

I've heard that they do accept an HSC or a FFL, but per their own eligibility requirements it seems like they really shouldn't:

Quote:
Firearms Owner Identification Cards that included live fire training. - FFL or C&R license
For competition appearances you'd only need one:

Quote:
Participation in a rifle, pistol, air gun or shotgun competition (provide copy of results bulletin)

It's kind of a poorly written page. For one thing there are two items on some lines that should be split up. Many of the items don't require live fire.

But yes, they accept a HSC. Lots of people here on the boards have done that. For the 19 year old - you can actually get a HSC even though you can't buy a handgun at the dealer, but they may tell you 'no' if they're running low on cards since they know you're not buying anything.

I did the required paperwork and went to the notary in about 1 hour total time. I did join the RWVA a couple months ago in anticipation of making the order, but there's not really much to it. $650 for a Garand is a hell of a deal considering the current market.
Ok first step for me is joining the GCA and then getting a HSC
and that's it?

Ban?

Seriously, if you can't see the amazing deal here just wait 5-10 years when they are gone and Garands are selling for $1500+ in your LGS. They are amazingly fun guns to shoot and are still very good at doing what they were designed to do back in the 30's.

That is it. Send in the 4 page purchase order form with copies of your id and the above items. Have 1 page of the form notarized (this only has to be done on your first order), and give them either a check or credit card number and wait for a Garand to arrive at your door shipped via next day air FedEx. Its really fun!

Any bank or UPS store/ Fedex Kinkos store will do it for $10. So you can get it notarized right before you mail it off from them.

The cmp was indeed set up by the gov:
