Default What website do you buy off?

Hi everyone!
Wanted to check with you guys to see which website you guys use to buy gear and gun accessories? I usually use midway it's a tad more expensive. CTD shipping prices are ridiculous. I just tried out Botach tactical ordered 3 lancer mags and some froglube to try and other small things, takes them a week! (Ordered 2-4-12) just to tell me half the stuff I ordered is out of stock and backordered for 3-4 weeks. And by email they ask me if I wanna change my order I replied and they've yet to get back to me... Who knows of reputable websites with decent prices and good customer service???
Thanks guys!

I like Amazon.com for most of my gun accessories and needs.
I have dealt with Amazon.com for many years and have confidence in their honesty and reliability.
Most of what I order is at my home in 3-4 days.

I'm with ranger on this. A lot of their gun accessories have free shipping and are cheaper then most others.

i use either MidwayUSA or Midsouth Shooters Supply. both have in the item description if it's in stock or needs to be backordered. so you know up front if it's available or not, and MidwayUSA even tells you when they should have them back in stock and also tells you if an item has to be special ordered. i used CTD once or twice, but their shipping costs are too high, especially when part of your order comes from one warehouse and part of it comes from another, two seperate shipping charges! Midway and MSS both have great service and fast shipping. another one i use and have had great luck with is Brownell's. they aren't cheap, but carry a lot of gunsmithing tools, lots of parts and accessories and lots of things needed for working on guns. plus they have a lot of information on their website in tutorals and how-to-do if working on a project. i recommend them highly. of the three, i use MidwayUSA the most.

Gunstuff4you.com hands down. Prices are right, no extra shipping and good customer service if you have a problem. They are a young company but they add new things all the time

I like Midway USA, they carry quite a lot of hard to find stuff.

I've been buying from CDNN for many years, http://www.cdnninvestments.com/specials.html never had any problems. I only place my orders on weekends because they have cheaper shipping then.

I had a run-in with CTD maybe 10 years ago. They charged me for a repo-M1 Garand rifle case but never included it in my order.

When I contacted Cust. Serv., the lady said they would send it BUT they were going to watch me very carefully, because they did not make mistakes in their shipping dept.. That was the last time I had anything to do with them.

What did they mean by watching you very carefully? Like on future purchases?

I downloaded the catalog on CDNN lots of good pricing. Thank you!
