    People still shop there ?

    Surprises me.

    The price thing- not so much. The fact that people keep looking there at all, even to find the prices.

    They should just change the name to " Our name is Dirt" and be done with it.

    I refuse to click their links anymore.
    Every time a new catalog comes in the mail I exclaim "Oh look! More fire starting material!".

    Are you sure it was the Optics Ready Carbine that was $599? I know the sport went for around that price, but the ORC's have always hovered around the high $700's - low $800's.

    But yeah, why anyone would even look at CTD anymore is beyond me, their pricing is almost comical. Even before the great gun/magazine drought of 2013, their prices were rarely competitive with those of other, better run and more solidly 2A sites.

    The M&P Sport 15 was around $700 last year, the year before it was going for around $600. I recently purchased one and gladly paid $850 for it at a local shop.

    Apparently, S&W just sent out a shipment of these "Optics Ready" M&P 15's. I just received an email from a local shop that has them listed for $1039. This is the same shop I bought my Sport 15 for $850 at. They are reputable and their prices are reasonable.

    So... I guess the sun still rises and CTD still gouges. :eek:

    I bought some minor thing from them years and years ago, when they were actually competitive. I STILL get a flyer from them for their "deals".:rolleyes: They have spent way more sending me a flyer over the years than I ever spent there. Still good for a laugh now and then when I thumb through the flyer before I recycle it however.

    I am not to cool to keep up with what is going on with online retail dealers. I have never bought anything from there. Ever. I just thought it was nuts. What a crazy markup.

    What's Platamen Stat Aromre?

    +1 I'm pretty sure this old horse has been beat to death, back to life and back to death once more. I was not aware their prices had ever been low enough that they could be hiked anyway.

    I've been much happier since I unsubscribed from their email list. Now I don't even have to see their stupid adds unless I click on a thread like this. :D

    Ar you really surprised? They've been selling $99 PMAGS for months. They are a business in it for profit and and are jumping on the high price supply and demand like most others.

    They are doing exactly what they should be doing.

    Yep! Preying on the Yanks who never bought a gun until their Lord and Savior was elected to a second term.

    Thanks for the good laughs this morning...

    I got an email alert for a bolt carrier group being in stock from another vender, but it was $70 more now, so I emailed them why I wasn't interested at that price. I am keeping a mental note of those who have raised prices way up. A little doesn't bother me, but a lot, nah, not for me.
