Why there? Which one? I haven't bought anything from them. Just make sure that your getting the best deal with tax, shipping and FFL costs. Have you checked gunbroker or the other sites?

I have and they are awesome. I bought a crossbow from them that broke and they exchanged it immediately. I received the new one and I broke it, no fault of theirs or the manufacture and they replaced it in under a week. I got another model and simply didn't like it and they took it back and refunded my money within 2 days. I find their prices as good as anything else you can find once you consider shipping. One thing to look at though is that sometimes they offer the same product at slightly different prices because they ship from warehouses all over the country. Make sure you find the cheapest one. At least this was the case with the crossbow.

CheaperThanDirt.com should be boycotted by everyone and anyone who has a firearm. During the lean period of ammo shortage and firearms, Cheaperthandirt was the one scoundrel who spiked their prices to an astronomical point that made it very difficult for every American to purchase. They will try to do all they can do to worm their way back into our good graces. But I will NEVER FORGET and will NEVER BUY from them ever again.

I traded there yesterday, but they had what I needed at a good price and I needed by this weekend. At a 10 minute drive, and with an adjoining firearms store they are a convenient, albeit last resort option for me. The tellers on the gun side are rude-aggressive....the catalogue side would rather not be bothered!

QFT!
They are a bunch of crooks.
$60 for a 100 round box of Mini Mags.

How about $200 for a brick of Armscor .22 ammo?
http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/AMM-0552
Perhaps some 9mm practice ammo is more to your taste? $30 ish +S&H, such a deal.
http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/AMM426
Does any of that seem reasonable?
Oddly enough, things have begun to ease up somewhat on ammo availability and pricing locally, but not CTD.
Oh, and it isn't as if their prices were all that special before their recent shenanigans.
I will go WAY out of my way to avoid using them for anything in the future. Hell, I'll pay Cabela's prices before I patronize CTD.

I use to get my ammo from CTD. At the time, the prices weren't so bad, about 12 cents a round when bought by the case. I made the mistake once of buying a collapsable buttstock from them. Turns out the threads on the tube weren't CNC'd, and I had to cant it sideways a little to hold the buffer detente in. It was a DPMS brand, and I was putting it on a DPMS lower, so they should have matched. Anyway, it doesn't look like they will get my business any more. Just my .02

I assure you Cheaper than Dirt has competition in the On-line hunting and shooting supply business. Anyone who is intrested in finding a better alternative to CTD is free to private message me for a recommendation to a good company. I'll even give you a coupon code for added savings.

Papa Jim- I have had correspondence and dealing with AIC himself for a number of years. Could not say enuff good things about him, and products I have seen come out of there. Used to hang out on the AuctionArms forum. If you speak with the man, please tell him C3 sends his best.
