I won the lottery!

I entered the CMP 1911 lottery back in September.

They received 8000 1911's from the DOD, but also received 19000+ orders during the 1 month open order period.  

CMP declared the process would be that every packet received would be assigned a random place in line.  With the additional admonishment "Don't call us, it'll only slow the process down".  And I have taken that to heart.

I was elated to receive an email with my number: 2606.  WhaHoo!  I feel like I've won the lottery.  They promise a call in a few weeks asking for grade & payment.

I can't wait..  But I will ;-)  This process started roughly a year ago.  I can wait a few more months..  And I will.  Go CMP!  TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY! ;-)

OTOH, I didn't connect with a single number on the Power Ball.

I'll take my chances with CMP :-)

Congratulations; that is fantastic news! We recently joined the CMP at the Carmi Rifle Club and I expect many of our members to order M1s and 1911s. It is thrilling.
