More Attacks on the 2nd!
I just last week bought a set of CDNN ear muffs. Howard Leight THUNDER 29s that normally retail far above the $9 I paid for a brand new pair! Even including shipping the price was 50% off. Read below, this is sickening. :blackeye: :rant::banned:

CREDIT CARD PROCESSING COMPANY REJECTS FIREARMS INDUSTRY
REFUSES TO PROCESS TRANSACTIONS . . . Citi Merchant Services and First Data Corp. are refusing to process any credit card transactions between federally licensed firearms retailers, distributors and manufacturers -- a move which will severely limit available inventory of firearms and ammunition to military, law enforcement and law-abiding Americans.
The first company to be affected by this decision appears to be firearms distributor CDNN Sports Inc.
"We were contacted recently by First Data/Citi Merchant Services by a June Rivera-Mantilla stating that we were terminated and funds were being seized for selling firearms in a non-face-to-face transaction," said Charlie Crawford, president of CDNN Sports Inc. "Although perfectly legal, we were also informed that no transactions would be processed in the future, even for non-firearms. I find this very frightening."
To voice your concern to Citi Merchant Services and First Data Corp:
Please contact June Rivera-Mantilla at 631-683-7734 or her supervisor Robert Tenenbaum at
To change to an NSSF-affiliated credit card processing program, contact Payment Alliance International at 1-866-371-2273 (ext. 1131).
In the meantime, money orders are a good way around such uber-control by the system. Works very well, both by sidestepping such cattle dung, and by keeping such things off the radar.
Unfortunately thats a major PITA for some of us:rant:
