    Which online ammo retailers would you stay away from?

    I've been watching gunbot and when a deal pops up that is within my range, I click and order.

    It's happened a few times that I will add an item to the cart, fill out my contact info and credit card #, then click submit, only to have it say "we're sorry, this item is out of stock".

    It occurred to me that maybe I should only be doing this with retailers I trust. Unfortunately, not having dealt with many of the shops that pop up, that limits my choices.

    So, are there retailers that either gave you horrible service, didn't send your order, or you feel ripped you off in some way?

    Who do you think I'd be better off not ordering from?

    CTD. I swear their dirt must be made of gold or something. Always seems way overpriced(and not just ammo) and never had a good experience with them when I was naive enough to make purchases there. Hence why I don't buy anything from them anymore.

    ^^^ Horrible service and ripped off. Granted that was a couple of years ago, but I learn from my mistakes. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...

    DoubleTap- advertised product as in stock will deliver in 5-8 days, never came ( still hasn't) - took quite a few days to get a response on order status ( waiting on components hence the ammo was never in stock)- again promised would have in a few weeks, still nothing. To me that shows poor integrity, and lousy customer service ( at most)

    Positive experiences with Buds, Lucky Gunner, Natchez, Midway USA in the past though everyone's stock is low and prices high.
    Very good experiences buying from random people on gunbroker, prices high but if you wade through the listings you can get 9 mm anywhere from $25-30 per 50 rounds, delivered.

    Would add to #3 Palmetto State Armory,Ammo-To -Go.
    If it says in stock they have it. If not in stock it either says so or the item isn't even listed.

    THESE ARE PLACES I WOULD BUY FROM.

    I've only been burned by one; Georgia Arms. There was no ammo crises at the time. They charged my card and never delivered.

    TargetSports USA. i ordered some supposedly in-stock shotgun ammo in early Feb. never shipped. won't respond to emails, tried to cancel the order and it still shows pending on their website. i called and got a very condescending person in customer service who said the exotic Winchester Super-X 000 buck i ordered is on indefinite backorder. luckily they do not hit the credit card till they ship, so if it ever comes I'll take it. but don't order anything you need within the next year.

    Cheaper than Dirt- their price gouging is outrageous!

    I've never had a problem with ammotogo.

    We've an online store here (St Nicholas) that has reasonable prices but expensive shipping rates. I live here so only need to pay the expensive gas rates.
