scumbag

Oh look, they “sponsored” an NRA commercial:

I’m not even sure what “sponsoring” an NRA commercial entails.  Maybe you tell the NRA you’re going to make a commercial, and then they review the message of it and allow you to put their logo on it?  Who knows… either way I don’t really care.  They already tried to buy their way back into our favor, that didn’t work… so why not try affiliating with the NRA right?  I really wish the NRA would have LOL’d at them and told them to shove it, but apparently that’s not how things work outside of my little grudge holding bubble.  Oh you shit on gun owners and the 2nd Amendment several times?  Oh whatevs LOL that’s in the past… welcome back!  <— basically how it seems to go.

Fuck Cheaper Than Dirt for thinking this would work:

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-Dirt-SAF-Donation

Full Press Release – SAF

*gasp* On Valentine’s Day too  >.<

Yeah $100k is a great amount to donate and everything *slow clap* but if I was running the Second Amendment Foundation I would have wiped my ass with that check and posted a pic on facebook instead.

A month and a half ago they were selling G.I. AR-15 magazines for $100, when wholesale cost on those is under $10, and even before that they crumbled to the pressure from the Newtown incident and shit on their customers by stopping online firearm sales.  Oh wait, the y realized that was a bad business move so they put their tail between their legs and started selling guns again shortly after… that makes it OK right?

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-DirtI’ll say it again… Fuck Cheaper Than Dirt.  If I had more money, I’d donate $200k to the SAF on the condition they told Cheaper Than Dirt that their scumbag money wasn’t good there.

Has CTD pulled their ads off here yet?  I refreshed a few times and didn’t see any.

Thoughts?  Any of you forget about their scumbag actions already, before I reminded you?

An FXhummel1 short about price gouging and knee jerk responses:

If DICK’s had any balls, semi-autos would be on their walls.

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-DirtI LOL’d when he said that.

FXHummel is wearing the pictogram selector switch t-shirt… one of my personal favorites.

Scumbag Cheaper Than Dirt strikes again:

*slow clap*  Ladies and gentlemen, the new low.  For those that don’t know, these normally retail for no more than $10 each.

Well well look who pissed off their entire customer base, then tried to take it back:

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-Dirt-Statement

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-DirtToo Late!

I’m sure just like the Recoil MP7 incident, people will forget really fast this happened, and new people getting into shooting will not know any better… but I hope not.

Cant-Believe

I actually now regret not planning to go to SHOT this year… there would be so many booths I’d like to hang around just to being a fly on the wall eavesdropping on people telling companies such as Cheaper Than Dirt, and individuals like Buck Yeager where to go.  Definitely some missed opportunities in live blogging…

Yea I get it.. supply and demand, but when you double to triple the price of things like magazines, people are going to get pissed off.  I’m not linking there, you can google it if you care.

When they pulled the same shit in 2008 before Obama was elected for the first time, I said to hell with them.  I hold grudges, but I’m sure their business didn’t suffer because I didn’t spend my few thousand per year on guns and accessories there.

They also announced this in the morning via facebook and twitter:

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.

*eye roll* congratulations, you’re retarded.  Way to jump on the bandwagon of ridiculous knee-jerk decisions such as Cerberus Capital Management selling the Freedom Group of companies, NBC Sports cancelling 3-Gun Nation, Discovery Channel canceling American Guns, DICK’s sporting goods not selling certain rifles anymore, and I’m sure either missed some or there will be more to add to this list in the next few weeks.

Oh well good riddance, I’ll spend my money elsewhere.  Maybe this company/franchise shake-up will be good for the industry as a whole, because investors who are not afraid of controversy, and support the 2nd amendment will step up to the plate and take control.
