We’re probably all well aware of the blunders on the part of Cheaper Than Dirt in the last few months. Now the question is, can they throw enough money at the community to get back into our good graces?
I’ll admit I’ve never been a customer of CTD’s, but I have been following the situation.
I don’t consider their actions to be price gouging, it’s supply and demand. If you really need mags that badly RIGHT NOW, you can pay an extremely high price for them – or you can wait and get them from a vendor that’s selling them at regular price. As has been noted by Magpul, they’re doing all they can to keep their MSRP consistent.
They did have an asinine knee-jerk reaction to the tragedy at Sandy Hook, that’s my big beef with them. Does cutting a big check to SAF absolve them of that?
Does jumping on the bandwagon of no sales to NY state employees that can’t go to non-government employees fix the problem?
I don’t think either of these gets them out of the hole they’ve dug, but I think they’re on the right track. Will you ever be a customer of CTD’s again? Were you before? I think they’ve got a long uphill battle when you’ve got companies like Brownells and MidwayUSA that didn’t pull any of these shenanigans.
