    CTD,, Why do you not ship to upstate NY?

    As your competitors do???.. Just asking... You would not ship 2000 rounds of ammo here to upstate NY 240 miles from the city.. Its perfectly legal to do so, so i simply did business with one of your major competitors, which i won't name here, but have named on another thread.. Sorry CTD, but thats bad business, and you lost someone that spends a lot of money on guns and ammo every year that wants to do business with you... You might want to consider rethinking a policy thats hurting your bottom line... bob

    CTD is the king of bad business practices. Vultures. Scam artists. Opportunists. And lot's of things that would get me points. Too many upstanding businesses to mess with a place like CTD.
    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    CTD could fall off of a cliff and I'd care less. I abhor their business practices.

    I am not here to bash these guys, would really like a reasonable explanation as to why they won't ship to upstate NY, when their competitors will.. I just bought 2000 rds of .380, and CTD would not sell to me, but one of their competitors was happy to, and with free shipping to boot.. I WILL do business with CTD in the future, if they would simply accommodate me.. I would love an explanation , from a CTD rep if they would be so kind.... bob

    I will pay double for an item before I'll purchase from CTD again. Ever.

    I remember when they took those "Evil Black Rifles" off the shelves. Said they would not sell them. I have a good memory about that kind of stuff.

    If you get an answer, please let us know.

    I suspect they used a price ploy to attract shoppers, but when you placed a 2,000 round order they blanched and didn't want to sell that much at that price. They may have had a quantity limit in the machine and failed to disclose it in the ordering process, either inadvertently or intentionally. I suspect the later, to be honest.

    To the contrary, their machines may just limit quantities into certain states for some unknown reason, or their machines lack the differentiations to allow upstate NY versus NYC. Who knows.

    Many of us have had very distasteful transactions with them, and some of us have taken a principled stand to avoid them until after death. Put me in that camp, and I have instructed my estate to do likewise.

    When CTD asked for my mothers maiden name for an order of 22LR ammo, I decided they were not worthy of my business.

    Don't know what the price of dirt is in their area, but it must be terribly expensive!

    I used to look at their prices for comparison purposes. After a few years of doing this and finding that in every instance their prices were high, I quit looking at their web site. This is aside from their business practices that offended an enormous number of shooters.

    CTD sucks as others noted ...That is why

    Maybe as your in NY some shopes wont sell anything to NY,CA etc legal or not either as policy or just not wanted to deal with laws that are alwasy changing

    But really they are jerks and most likly you got a good deal and they cancled it to avoid given it to you
