Yep, I caught that also, almost posted it, but so tired of people exploiting the current situation "especially them", I was going to let it go. Since you put it up I have to say it is indeed shameful behavior on their part, playing both ends of the debate.
We know it's "all about the money" with these guys.

April 19, 2013, 11:21 AM
Oh come on, that's only $1k more than I paid for the exact same rifle... Where's the exploitation?


April 19, 2013, 11:29 AM
Take a stand and do not support them.

April 19, 2013, 11:30 AM
FL Gun Exchange has them for less than $900 right now. The weather's quite fine this time of year...

April 19, 2013, 11:32 AM
Didn't we just survive the current bout of gun control?

April 19, 2013, 11:33 AM
I think this may be worse...

April 19, 2013, 11:35 AM
I saw that and didn't even open the email. Walmart had an AR in the case last night for $997 but I didn't even look at it closely. Ammo was completely empty other than shotgun and 30-06.

ONLY $89??? It must be christmas!!!


April 19, 2013, 11:38 AM
My coworkers and I always have a good laugh over the pricing these days, some are worse than other though.

Plus shipping...

CTD is officially on my BOYCOT list...thanks guys.

April 19, 2013, 11:46 AM
Guess they don't follow all of the news.

April 19, 2013, 11:51 AM
:rolleyes: Just let me jump right on that.

In contrast, Midway USA just sent me an e-mail telling me that 4 Pmags I had on backorder were now available. $13.25 each. Shipping today. Larry Potterfield - you have earned my business for the long haul. What a stand up operation.

April 19, 2013, 12:08 PM
I got the same e-mail this morning.
Some people loathe CTD. Havig perused their site as well as the catalog I have to say I understand the reasons -- "Cheaper" than "dirt?" Yeah. "Cheaper than plutonium" as some wag refered to them somewhere else....another thread, maybe another website even.
But I have to say I did just received a rifle sling from them which was reasonably priced and delivered promptly.
Now, as to ordering AR-15 rifles from them:


April 19, 2013, 12:14 PM
Even if they did have the best price on something (that'll be the day, right?), I'll still never buy from them. I won't even visit their website.

Trying to employ scare tactics to sell your product is pretty unscrupulous, bordering on immoral (even illegal).

April 19, 2013, 12:17 PM
Yeah....but unfortunatly they aren't the only ones using scare tactics. I get lots of e-mails from pro 2A groups claiming that if I don't give them $$$ Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosu, et al, will ban my guns.
And let us not forget the antigunners are the real champs at scare tactics.

April 19, 2013, 12:20 PM
I deleted that email earlier today.

While AR prices aren't what they used to be, my LGS had about a dozen AR's on the wall earlier this week. No ammo, but rifles and mags were in stock.

I think we are through the worst of the gun panic, but I fear we still have a ways to go to be in the clear on ammo.

Like Tommy, I get the pro 2A scare tactics as well. NAGR is the worst when it comes to that.

Sometime back in Feb, I got so sick and tired of the CTD emails that I unsubscribed. I've never been happier not to get emails anymore from these clowns.

April 19, 2013, 12:49 PM
Never mind that you can buy that same model for almost a thousand dollars less from other online retailers right now.

Never mind that CTD is still listing 6920s for $2500 when you can get them from other online retailer for $1000-$1300 (that's today, in stock).

Never mind that they haven't kept up with the news.

Never mind CTD...

April 19, 2013, 12:53 PM
Larry at Midway gets my coin, not them.

April 19, 2013, 01:10 PM
Profiteers, carpetbaggers will always surface from the bottom when opportunity occurs.

It is not my first rodeo. The bulls seem to be getting bigger, meaner and morre crazy as I have gotten older though.

News reporting should no longer be called that. It should be called the "my warped opinion show" or "This is my agenda, you should be part of it."

April 19, 2013, 01:11 PM
CTD is making a living by stabbing their clients in the back and that ain't too cool.

They are on my doo doo list now also.

April 19, 2013, 01:36 PM
CTD will never get a cent from me.

April 19, 2013, 01:51 PM
I think this may be worse...

Oh gee only $4.50 per round.:rolleyes:

Every email I get from them for the last three month I just delete. I don't even bother opening them up. Straight to the trash.

We are quick to bash merchants who are taking advantage of the political climate. Yet, the panic was started on forums just like this one. There was thread after thread about the oncoming ammo shortage. The reelection of Obama was going to lead to new gun laws. The few voices of reason were quickly drowned out by those who believed in the panic. There were even threads about making an AR15 legal. Yet, no legislation had made it out of committee onto the floor for a vote in either the house or senate.

I have to commend the moderators here at the high road for deleting a lot of panic inducing threads. Now that anti gun legislation is dead maybe we will be able to get ammo at normal prices in a couple of months.

Yes, we should not support vendors who are taking advantage of the current situation. They have shown their true colors. I belong to a gun club that joins members together to make large ammo purchases at wholesale prices. Ammo prices have went up at the wholesale level but they have not gone up to match CTD pricing. A vendor should be able to make a reasonable profit selling 9mm range ammo at $15 a box, when they can get it.

April 19, 2013, 02:09 PM
So CTD is going after some short-term gain for what will inevitably be some long-term pain. They've made that choice. Other vendors, as mentioned above, have decided that the prudent thing is to develop and maintain long-term relationships with their customers. I guess time will tell how that will all work out for those concerned.

P.S. -- Am I reading that right? The day after the AWB gets soundly defeated, CTD sends out a sales flyer urging folks to get their ARs before they're banned? :confused:

April 19, 2013, 02:13 PM
^^^^Come on out to California; the "panic" is much worse than any federal law could have hoped to be, yet is really, very likely to be made law. On 16 April, the Assembly Public Safety Committee passed through several very draconian bills, and from there those bills will move on through some more steps before Jerry Brown will likely sign most, if not all. The California Rifle and Pistol Association is currently tracking 48 bills; so for us out here, the "panic" is much more reality than in North Carolina.

April 19, 2013, 02:21 PM
You are correct. I failed to remember that there is still plenty of state AWB legislation in the works.

April 19, 2013, 02:26 PM
I began boycotting CTD back in 2008-2009. Of course, they weren't the only ones throwing that line on their customers. Heard several gun shop associates lay it on thick to scare people into buying $2500 ARs.

I usually buy from MidwayUSA, even when I could save a few dollars somewhere else.

April 19, 2013, 02:34 PM
Sweet I'm gonna order 3 of those AR's and 3000rds of that special ammo.....


April 19, 2013, 02:37 PM
Plenty of "no love for CTD" threads already.
