    Now I have Seen Everything

    Cheaper Than Dirt is advertising run of the mill 115 gr 9mm PNC for $69.69 PER BOX OF 50! This is unconscionable! Add shipping to me and that comes to over $85 per box. Bulk Ammo is selling the same load for $39.35 per box, also outrageous, but Cheaper Than Dirt? Come on...! Time to change your name.

    The dirt that CTD is referring to is Waterworld's.

    I love that movie.

    Back to the subject at hand. I literally just called one of my three local gun stores and they are selling RE-MANUFACTURED 9mm at $30 for bag of 50. I was aghast. I guess I'll practice with my EDC guns sometime next year.

    Just remember who tried to rip you off when things settle down.

    This same company jacked up pmags right after Sandyhook - before the cost to them could have gone up (so it wasn't a response to their cost increasing). They are opportunists, and if idiots will pay, they'll take advantage of them. I'll never shop there again - either online or in their McKinney store.

    - I lucked out. My LGS had a plastic box of CCI Blazer (350 rounds) for $100 yesterday.

    I got 200 rounds of .45 (230 gr FMJ WWB) this morning at Walmart for $82. I've always looked down my nose at Walmart but their reasonable ammo prices have really impressed me.

    CTD can go to hell.

    CTD outdid themselves today: "9x19mm PMC Starfire SFHP 124 Grain 20 Round Box Starfire Hollow Point 1090 fps 9FSB Our Low Price: $89.19"

    That's $4.46 per round BEFORE shipping. For that kind of money, I'd expect an IR seeker head or loiter capability!

    I actually stopped into their retail store in McKinney yesterday for the entertainment value and because I wanted to stop at Whataburger at the same exit. Their shelves are totally full with literally dozens of boxes of various types of ammo in every common caliber. Prices are the same absurdity as online (plus tax) and the staff are like a bunch of used car salesmen. Their gun cases are packed too, the prices on handguns aren't too inflated but anything AR related is gouged to the moon. They had a stripped AR lower being sold for $699! HAHAHA!

    I wondered around taking phone pics of the crazy prices to send to my friend, the store manager noticed what I was doing and didn't say anything but was clearly watching me and was not happy at all, like I give a fu..err hoot. The worst was one of their slime ball salesmen telling an older lady there by herself that the PMC hollowpoint .380 they were selling for like $79.99 for 20 were the best ammo in the world etc. I was this close to saying something but realized that if she is gullible enough to 'get sold' that easily then I can't help her.

    Harassing members or sponsors because you do not agree with them (their price, product, opinion, etc) is NOT appropriate - IMO.

    If you disagree, that's fine, but promoting the harassment of others on DC should not be allowed, or tolerated, by members or admin.

    If you don't like a vendor, go elsewhere.
