Remember how excited I was to have a clean garage with items up on shelves? And I could get my car in there? Well, here's what it looks like today. My daughter is moving and has a 4-5 week lag time between when she has to get out of her old apartment and when she can get into her new one. She's staying with friends and I didn't want her to have to pay for a storage unit.

Well, nature abhors a vacuum, and children abhor an "empty" garage at mom's house!

It wasn't empty. It had my car in it.

Actually, I don't mind helping my daughter out. I made her promise she'd take every scrap of paper, every Q-tip, etc. out when she got her new apartment.

Well, in a child's eyes that is mostly empty.

Garage- from the French word for "Place for your kids to store furniture".

Really cheaper than dirt?

http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/MAG-068

I will never do business with them after all they have done in the last few weeks. Midway USA will get my business instead.

Holy cow! $100 for a 30-round mag? That is freaking gouging to beat Hell! I wonder how many they have?

I guess the price dirt is rising!

Cheaper than Dirt has always angered me with their policies, and horror stories I have heard from other FTFers. I do not do business with them.

That's what everyone said the LAST time they did this four years ago... Cheaper Than Dirt were by far the worst known name. But look on the bright side:

these mags are "...fully operable, but may show some wear and scuffing..." and the price will be slashed back to $8.99 just as soon as they are out of stock!
