    Gee whiz! Conspiracy theories seem to abound these days, no matter what the subject that comes up. I totally understand the impatience with our legislators, but right now, Trump is focused on really BIG things, like the economy, N. Korea, China, Russia, etc. I suspect he'll get around to this ASAP. We just don't know when it'll be "possible" for him to let go of the big issues and get his "round tuit" for this. Would anyone here want him to forego dealing with N. Korea, China and Russia, just to get a coveted milsurp? There's an old story about a fellow who prayed for patience. "Lord, I want patience, and I want it RIGHT NOW!" Most of us "moderns" frequently resemble that fellow. And yeah, it IS hard to have patience, but .... jumping the gun or leaving more truly serious and consequential issues to deal with this would be .... less than smart and less than honorable. I'll wait. Would LOVE to have one of those Garands!!!! And several more models, to boot!

    Guys I hate to say it; but we all may be experiencing a huge PIPE DREAM. There is nothing really wrong with a pipe dream as long as we all recognize it for what it truly is: Wishful thinking lined with a little BS!.........................

    Where there is lots of things to do.
    I believe the Garands will be coming in short order. The CMP needs them:

    "The federal law that established the new CMP authorizes the Corporation to sell surplus .30 and.22 caliber military rifles, parts and ammunition to qualified U.S. citizens "for marksmanship". Accordingly, the CMP sells government-surplus M1 Garands, .22 caliber target rifles and small quantities of other rifles to qualified purchasers. Net revenue from CMP sales is used to fund operations and programs and to supplement a permanent endowment."

    Yeah, I love cast iron cookware.
