The slightest mention of CTD will bring out torches and pitchforks and cries of "GOUGERS!" but they have the cheapest 9mm @ 0.38/rd.

Why all the support for the other 30 vendors represented on that site but this one with the cheapest ammo (in this example) elicits pure rage?

As a matter of fact, when searching for 9mm, CTD has 4 of the top 11 listings. So why is it absolutely unacceptable for them to sell it for 38 cents/round but luckygunner at 43 cents is just supply and demand?

My opinion is that something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. It's not like you're forced into paying what they (or any vendor) is asking. Shop around if you don't like it. If I had something to sell and I was asking $100 but someone who was in a panic because they didn't have one and NEEEEEEEEDED it offered me $150 I'd gladly take his money.

PS: I have heard about them cancelling backorders then relisting the item for more. That's f'd up but unless and until it happens to me I'm not judging an entire company because of what some angry tactical ninja said on a message board.

PPS: PSA has slow shipping. Everyone knows that so stop whining about it.

Yet you are willing to judge someone that posts a poor CS experience as an "angry tactical ninja".....interesting.

Bottom line is, spend your money where you want. It's ultimately up to you. If the values and moral standing of an organization suits you or, simply, does not matter....knock yourself out.

To me, supply and demand can be understood @ a difference of .06 cents a round. But, cancelling orders and relisting those items at an inflated cost, just to force consumers into buying them at a higher price is quite another matter.

It's the internet and anyone can post anything they want. Of course I read reviews of all these places but I won't let them prevent me from making a purchase if the price is right; however, I also won't be surprised if I have the same experience. If I do then I won't go back but I'll at least give everyone the benefit of the doubt once.

CTD has never wronged me. I've always received what I ordered in timely fashion for what I agreed to pay. 38 cents/round for 9mm is more than I'm willing to pay so I simply do not buy it.

This website still takes their advertising dollars for banner ads, so on principle should we all not support xdtalk either?

I am not about to get ripped off by sorry bastards gouging the hell out of me in the name of supply and demand. IMO Almost a buck per trigger pull is not justified by any reasoning. .22 @ 550 rounds was $20 but now $75 by some dipchit rip offs. Screw them, there is no excuse for that. You're dang right I don't have to buy from them, and I will not even if it means putting the gun up till things get right again. There is no enjoyment shooting while getting ripped off.

$.38/round for Russian ammo?

I will shoot my .22 till things settle down and return to near normal...

I agree. The point was that everyone loves to hate CTD but the other 30 businesses that list on ammoseek are more expensive, but they get a pass.

Brandon,

How old are you? This is a serious question and not a dig.

This might be a serious question but it's inconsequential to his point.
