    If they were making their stuff and setting their prices that would be one thing.

    Do you want gun items? Retailers know this, and in a tight market, they fall into a trap of having nothing to sell because another retailer out bid them. You would also take your business elsewhere if they're always out of stuff.

    In the future, it will settle down again, and prices will revert back to being more predictable. Hopefully.

    Doesn't matter. They will not get a dime of my money. Ever. CTD and any other company that is price gouging will lose a lot of business because of their practices.

    Only CTD could have outdone themselves for ripping off the shooting sports community more than they did LAST time. How anyone can buy there especially after the gouging of the less informed going back years now is beyond me. Crooks with crap!

    They pulled this stuff when Obama got his first term and sales spiked. It's a stupid or insane person that does the same thing time and again and expects a different result. I refused to give them money after I watched it the last time. Anyone that didn't learn form then or now deserves what they get. And I will ask them to hit themselves with a hammer in the head and ask after a few tries has the result changed....

    I made the mistake and bought from them before the price spike. My order came shipped poorly packed, smashed boxes, loose rounds, etc.. Never again.

    The last gun show I went to had Glock 33 round mags for $25 each. Box of them, maybe 20 ish of them. Did me no good, with a Glock 20. It will be better after people calm down again, I hope.

    I've been wanting to get a M95 straight pull from them, but ammo (at least the en blocs) are hard to find.

    Well all I'm saying is either way if stuff goes up or down they have lost my bus.. I ust to b a loyal customer of there's and this is how I get repaid and there is always another place to go buy what I need and most likely cheaper as high they spiked up there prices..

    It always makes me laugh when I see something at a decent price that says "Out of Stock" but there is the option to purchase at 50% markup "from one of our other warehouses.". What a joke.

    I wish people had long memories with this kind of thing. I will never shop there again. I will also stay away from the LGS that has raised their prices. I will only buy from them when I have no choice and even then ONLY when their prices are back to normal.

    'Greedier Than Dirt. com' they should be called. I did many business transactions with them prior the greed craze. I moved onto to Natchez.com. Quite reasonable for some time.

    Their insane shipping costs have always kept me away. When they pulled semi autos in response to the shooting and started price gouging, that sealed the deal. I will never do business with someone like that. Midway USA is much better anyways.
