    Sweet! However I will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever buy anything from cheaperthandirt due to how they handled themselves during the Newtown thing.

    I have seen several patrols on gunbroker too

    right after the shootings, they instantly stated that they would take down all online gun sales, and did so. Then shortly after they came back and said they'd resume selling guns. Also, as soon as Pmags started flying off the shelves, they jacked their prices up through the roof, selling them for 40 and then up to around 60 bucks each.

    Knee jerk reactions that they flip flopped on and didn't stick to, and ridiculous profiteering. They will never have my business.

    I understand why you would not want to use them. Honestly all my LGS's had higher prices than cheaperthandirt on mags and ammo. This whole situation on ammo sucks. Oh well,thats a whole other topic. ;)

    Everything in my area is pretty well available except .22lr and .22mag at just a bit higher than pre scare prices. I reload .223 which is what i shoot the most. Once i buy a house i may get a progressive press to load 9mm and .45

    Amen to this brother! I won't EVER purchase something no matter if I have to spend more elsewhere or not. After the $100 USGI 30rd used mags, the $1.00 a pop .223 ammo, and more, it was insane. I still have screenshots around somewhere of the dollar a around ammo. They took advantage of folks big time, and they can take one in the rear for it.

    It's actually too bad Cheaper Then Dirt is still in business. After Newtown, they took total advantage of the consumer. More so then any other online retailer. And it wasn't the first time that they did. The last two presidential elections, they jacked prices.

    If people would stop shopping there, it would send a very clear message to all the others who took advantage of the situation.

    The one that really stood out for the good, was Midway. They kept the pricing as is, until stock ran out. Which earned my respect and business.

    Midway is good, but I only go there on occasion as they got rid of their Dealer program, so I no longer get discounts as an 03 FFL holder, so they clearly didn't care about my business too much. Brownells is where I go unless all else fails.

    Sorry to hear about Midways discontinuation of their dealer program for FFL holders. As a Joe shopper like myself. They do offer the consumer some good buys. But with anything, you must know the pricing of things, to know your getting the best deal possible.

    I like Brownells. They offer a lot with decent pricing. And their speed of delivery is outstanding. Two - three days to my location in Oregon, after order is placed.

    Buds is another great place for deals. I've done a lot of parts buying through them. Only draw back, slow to get things out the door and into your hands. I bought two Gunsite Scout 10rd Accurate-Mags (AICS standard for my 700 in a MDT LSS), at $42 ea on 5/29 and they are still three days out.
