    Does anyone know if an Oregon CHL meets the marksmanship or other firearms related activity with the CMP for purposes of purchasing from the CMP?

    I was interested in purchasing from the CMP and have read on a few sites that a CHL meets the requirement. I wanted to see if anyone knew for sure.

    I kinda figured that much too and am not too much in the habit of asking obvious questions. But the CMP site is not super clear, so I thought I would see if anyone has any experience with this requirement.

    One of the options to meet the requirement says "Distinguished, Instructor, or Coach status. - Concealed Carry License." It is not really clear (at least to me) what that means. A few other sites I visited suggested it meant a CHL meets the requirement.

    There seem to be a lot of people here with a variety of knowledge on all sorts of gun related matters. So, I thought I would reach out to a fellow NWFA brother or sister and see if anyone had better information that what I could glean from the CMP website.

    CHL meets the requirement for markmanship.

    If you would like, I can email you a copy of the CMP order form that specifically spells it out

    so... if a CHL meets the requirement for the marksmanhip program... the one could order a Garand from them?

    $525 for a field grade Garand... hmmmmmm

    Well, you gotta pay for a membership (like Garand Collectors Association) for $25 unless you already have a membership at a qualifying club. And you have to pay about $25 in shipping. But, yes.

    SBC97281 beat me to it. All you need to do is participate in an Appleseed event, and that meets the requirement for a Garand purchase. That's how I did mine. Not only do you get your marksmanship form for CMP, but you also get some GREAT basic marksmanship training that is totally worth it!
