WTF CTD

Cheaper Than Dirt! is suspending online sales of firearms effective immediately.

We are reviewing our policy internally, and will continue to be the leader in the outdoor industry with our full line of gear and accessories.

Michael Tenny, CEO

As I said in the original post, if it was because they can’t keep up with sales volume, then you says something like, “Hey, look, we’re up to our @sses in orders right now and we’re going to hold off selling more until our our search and rescue team makes contact with the shipping department,” they should say that. To suspend gun sales right after the show they were sponsoring (3 Gun Nation) gets yanked off the air gives the appearance of craven cowardice in the face of adversity.

How long did it take Colt, Ruger and Smith and Wesson to recover from waffling on civilian firearms rights in the 90’s? Will it take a longer or shorter time for CTD! to recover from this, now that we are so active and involved online? 

Stand by us, and we’ll stand by you once the storm has cleared. Abandon us, and we will remember your actions when things get better.
