    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 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. :mad:

    I like MidwayUSA the best, there shipping is very reasonable and it's the fastest I've dealt with. Cheaper than Dirt is a joke when it comes to shipping sometimes I think they make up the price of some of the products by charging more shipping than what it really cost.

    Cabelas...I watch them close for deals...I order and pick up (1/2 mile from me) no shipping charges. Natchez is good too.

    When I am looking for gear, I google search and hunt for the best combination of price and shipping. Amazon works out the best many times, but I have no loyalty to any site. I don't think I have bought ammo from the same site twice; never any bad experiences, just the deal of the day.

    I usually start with our vendors here on ftf. If they dont have what i want i go to midway. I look closely at shipping costs. Midway shipping is generally ups with tracking number that works. Their shopping cart is really usable and saves from session to session.

    They may be out of the current markets;but, I used Natchez Shooting Supply for several commodities.

    For me, I look around to see who has the best deal with shipping. Have been using amazon for years, but have never got gun supplies from them. Will have to keep them in mind. I like cabelas, and may have to use them more as they are opening a store near by next week.

    Sorry for the late reply Frank, I just noticed your question. :)

    Yep! thats exactly what she was saying. Kinda like I was some kid they caught with my hand in the cookie jar. The gist of what she was saying was, "Ok we know you are ripping us off but we are going to let it go this time, just never let it happen again!" :eek: Really torqued my jaws, never ordered from them again.

    Now with CDNN I place an order about every month. The only problem I've ever had with them was about ten years back they sent me the wrong mag.

    When I called them they were nice as could be. They sent the right mag out that day and told me to just keep the wrong mag for my trouble, Great Folks!

    Midway USA has never screwed up an order in 30 years, good people there too. Take care, Ken
