A lot of chapped asses will be inbound to explain.  There prices have come back down to reality so I have since ordered twice from them.

Ahhhh, I didn't realize that they had a special forum. Gotcha, carry on.

They certainly didn't make many friends after the election.  I remember many, many posts  ending with Fuck Obama, and CTD.

im all for making a buck...but they where insane

Maybe they received a reup offer from site management with a negative discount.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 8:56:10 AM EDT
I've forgotten about them since the fake edits are not allowed anymore.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 8:57:23 AM EDT

To be fair... they never ran out of ammo.

I go to their retail location sometimes since it's local and the shelves remained stocked throughout the rush. Plus they're the only place around here where you can finger fuck an AR10, 3 versions of M1A, and a DSA FAL all in one stop.

That was their rationale when they were called on their amazingly high prices.

"We raise the price on these so we keep some in stock."

With that rationale, I think they were looking at having some in stock in perpetuity and had to bring their prices back down to a more believable level just to sell to those that are ignorant to the fact that there are refutable places like AimSurplus etc out there that don't try to overcharge.

That and with a savings of -51.98% people told them to pound sand.

Not over nothing.  They had someone sitting at a computer election night raising prices and illegally advertised inflated MSRPs.



Fuck CTD, they're no "friend" of the shooting community.  I'll continue to buy from the numerous companies who are.

Never noticed any indication that the constant anti-CTD banter ever hurt sales or reduced traffic.

They're still stuffed with customers and moving goods out of the warehouse like moonshine...

Sorry - you are wrong.



I don't buy from them if they aren't the low cost leader on what I am looking for, or making it up in service.  However - they DO support the shooting industry, sponsor LOTs of local shooting events, and sponsor TV shows, prizes at competitions, etc...



That IS the definition of a friend to the shooting community.... to me.



Dont like what they did when supply and demand was all out of whack - thats your business.  Dont want to buy from them - knock yourself out.  Hate them as individuals?  That is your perogative.





But blathering on that they are "no friend to the shooting community" is moronic at best, and intentionally false at worst.

I understand your perspective.  I agree, I didnt like to see some of the things they did with their pricing, and how they run their forum.  But I do respect their right to do as they wish.



I shoot in a lot of the local competitions, and I always see them contributing and supporting the community, so I felt the need to correct that.  I am very appreciative of ANYONE that supports shooting events.  Without this support, we would not have them.

I guess I wasn't here for the drama. What happened?
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 7:55:03 PM EDT
for the money they robbed, at least they give some back...

i guess if people fall for all the bullshit, sky is falling, rare rare, never to be seen again shit...
then that's thier problem !! some are just stupid, but i do feel bad for the ones that give CTD and others thier hard earned
money, and go home with a sore butthole, not even politely lubed with One Shot.

ammoman... that dude is another story all together . i have a buddy that used to go there all the time.
got to know him... dudes, that guy was literally LAUGHING in his Customers faces, as he made bank.

i have no prob with makin a buck and i always said that here...but i don't laugh at our Cusomers, ( unrelated to gun business )when
they plunk down hard earned cash. im old school, and actually appreciate it. and hope they keep coming so i can keep working.

some of these gun / ammo compaines are just off how they treat thier customers with all the lies and bullshit.
i don't need to lie all day long to make a buck.

i don't believe most of it , even from wall street to a car salesman. they are mostly full of shit !!
But im glad...the prices are FINALLY coming back down to earth. and im sure they are still makin some money.
i Hope all the investers finally get lost out of our hobby, so i can enjoy it more....

Hooya

Agreed.

CTD falsely advertised MSRP for PMAGS.  Didn't someone here report them to Texas Attorney General and that forced them to change the policy?

Link Posted: 7/20/2010 4:59:04 AM EDT
I don't know how they stuck it out when all the "Edited By CTD..." comments were flying around. Haha !

Because 99% of the people are too stupid to not get it. Their brains do not have the ability to process information and think good.
I hate 99% of the world . You all make things not fun for me anymore because you are oh so stupid and cannot think at all.
I went from laughing, to hating, simply because the 99% are too stupid to realize things.
