OK back in business

Cheaper Than Dirt! will Resume Online Firearm Sales Pending Policy Changes

Cheaper Than Dirt! recently announced that it was temporarily suspending online sales of firearms pending a review of its order processing and procedures. Well-known for its ability to process and ship orders within 24 hours, online sales have skyrocketed to a point where it may take up to 72 hours for firearms and other items to ship.

"In light of recent events, we believe it is prudent to review our policies and procedures to ensure we can continue to provide the products and firearms our customers demand," said Chief Operations Officer Roberta Wilson. "We will resume online sales once we update our process and continue as we have always done by shipping firearms only to FFL dealers."

Ms. Wilson closed with, "As a long-time supporter of the Second Amendment, we will continue to serve the needs of the firearms community while ensuring our unsurpassed level of quality and customer service."

CTD suspended sales because they don't actually stock the guns they sell, and so their system was accepting payment for guns that could be back ordered for months.

But the gunternet, which loves to climb on the Drama Llama and eat its own, read "suspended" and said "zOMG! CTD HATES TEH 2A! KILL TEH HERETICS!"

Good job, men. Let's go after Brownells next. I hear they don't even sell guns. Traitors.

You are right Tam, I think they could have handled it better.
We are discontinuing gun sales because we can't get any! would have understood by all

Now Dick's on the other hand removed their stock, to be PC or something

Dick's got punked, but they were never very enthusiastic about carrying guns for anything other than shooting at Bambi and Daffy, anyway, so no great loss. (They won't even carry handguns.)

I don't shop there if I can help it.
