    More price gouging from CTD. Looks like they are trying to alienate the entire shooting community.

    well, i went by the store and they were sold out of everything so you can't really blame them. If demand goes up so will prices - I'm betting you won't be helping them out by giving them money if a weapon/ammo ban goes through. they would likely go out of business shortly after given tactical guns are such a huge part of their business.

    Actually, they're selling their products for prices their customers will pay. It's called "Free Market Capitolism".

    I've bought lots of stuff from CTD, when it's priced right, and will do so again if it works out that way.

    I can buy 1000 rounds of Hornady TAP for $850ish, and that is fairly pricey stuff.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Stocked up after the 2008 elections and bought up a ton of XM193 for $330/1000, also got my assortment of 77 grain TAP and other stuff.

    Glad I did.

    I'm taken off of their mailing list and I will never do business with them again!!! :steamed:

    I did not realize your purchase was from their retail store. I thought you were referring to on-line purchase.
