    If you find their business ethics acceptable, no one here will object to you spending your own money with them. The OP simply pointed out that history repeats itself.

    Only thing(s) I purchased from CTD was 10-round Beretta mags for my PX4 when I lived in CA.
    They had the best price at the time.

    Are you OK with a gas station charging $50 per gallon during an emergency evacuation as well? It's the same thing, price gouging and it's disgusting.

    I've been throwing their catalogs away for quite a while now.
    Not left their mailing list .... I still make them incur the cost of sending the catalog. I just pitch it.

    Rob, "The OP", got his feelings hurt. Poor thing.

    Bless your heart, Rob. Bless your heart.

    I hope all is well in Corpus. Stay healthy!

    Odd - we just had a power bleep. Maybe this post will get lost in the ether.

    There is a difference between supply and demand and price gouging during a emergency.
    I only shop at places that I feel are patriotic and have morals whenever possible.
    This place ain't one of them.
    BTW, if you are just getting around to stocking up on ammo now, well Bless Your Heart.

    Something I learned during the previous panics: Stay stocked up!

    I'm going to my emo corner and cry my emo tears now. I will seek my safe space.

    I learned to stack them high and stack them deep during the last shortage. Plus I reload and I've got components coming out my ears. I swore never again last time I got caught with my pants down.

    But I will never, ever do business with CtD again for any reason.

    Some people can't remember ammo being wiped out in the last two prior panics, or don't learn, and don't stock up when ammo is available and cheap.
    Expecting them to remember a merchant that price gouged and subsequently not shop there, right.
    If Dicks made 9mm ammo available right now, people that swore they would never shop there again would be lined up outside Dicks doors.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
