Glad With Sympathies

People being informed of their place in the CMP 1911 lottery are now receiving the message:

This email is to notify you that your order has been received and you have been assigned a number through the random number generating process. You will find your number listed below. At this time, we do not have enough 1911 type pistols to complete your order. Should the Army send us another shipment of sufficient quantity, we will use those 1911 type pistols to fill the next orders in line. Please do not contact us or reply to this email at this time.

The lowest number reporting this on the CMP forums is 8008.

Since the first number is apparently 1000, that means somewhat fewer than 7000 guns were good enough to sell out of the 8000 delivered.

There were 19,000 packets sent in, so there could be 12,000 people waiting for their chance with a maximum of 10,000 guns in the second disbursement for FY2019.  The law funding the disbursements required the Secretary of the Army to disburse "up to" 10,000 pistols for each year of FY2018 and FY2019.  That could be a very small number, but he MUST disburse some.

It's very doubtful that the Pelosi House will authorize any guns for FY2020 or FY2021.

I am thankful I got mine and rooting for those still waiting for theirs.
