Checked out the new store in Round Rock this weekend. If you haven't been there, do yourself a favor.. although a lot of what they have isn't cheap, but then again, neither is dirt these days. they have several side by side 20 ga. for $55-$95k, shown by appointment only! They even sell TACTICAL BACON!!!

Guessing you didn't shop much during the last gun run huh. CTD price gouged like crazy. Think they were charging something like $100 per pmag not to mention all their other crap I'll never shop there. Never would anyway much better prices online than their regular non-gouge prices.

They could be selling .45 ACP for a penny a shot and they won't get another red cent from me.

I haven't looked at one thing they have since Sandy Hook. Even before that they killed you on shipping.

Guess I missed that. I've never shopped there myself, but I don't bemoan businesses for playing by the laws of supply and demand. What good is a gun shop without guns, ammo and mags? If $100 wasn't fair, what was fair? They had to keep stuff in stock, right? Not trying to defend them, but I just don't understand that attitude.

How would you feel if you had a existing order with them for items that were clearly in stock at time of purchase. Then after the order is placed prices on said items sky rocket on the secondary market. They then cancel your order and claim the items are out of stock. Then you look on their website and find that the items are NOT out of stock at all but now have a price mark up of 600% or more. Oh.......and lets say they go ahead and ship the part of your order that cost less than $10 and weights less than 1 pound and that didn't suffer from the crazy price increase but they didn't bother to tell you they cancled most of your order until AFTER they shipped your cheap stuff and still charged you more in shipping than what they shipped cost. LOL!

That happened to me. wink

They way they treated their customers was dumber than dirt, and as can be seen, most remember.

There are many places with outstanding customer service and treat them like they want them.

Support the places that support their customers.

I still shopped there before Sandy Hook even though they have shown this same pattern before..but Sandy Hook was the last straw. I've not shopped there since. However, I HAVE gone into the McKinney store on a few occasions to internally laugh at their prices and listen to the sounds of crickets chirping in their store. Normally it's after I've spent a butt load at Cabelas. I don't know how they keep the B&M stores going - every time I've been in there haven't been many customers compared to the pre scare days.
