Unhappy Apex Going Away?

Well this really sucks! I guess this was going to happen sooner or later. Apex also has left the AK Forum too.

For the lazy who can't be bothered to actually look, Apex is taking some time away from the board.

They are not going out of business.

Actually APEX has always had decent stuff at fair prices. Not everything can be cheap...these days. Most especially these days.

Shitting on them, and forgetting their many years of good service to the builders here - and across a slew of other sites....is just a sign of the times.

I don't blame them for not wishing to engage in "discussions" here, that are generally turned into whine and attack fests - by members (new and old)....who have helped lower the overall IQ and respectability of the place into the toilet.

That said - I will still buy from them, they often have stuff others don't.

As for the CC thing.....these days you would have an easier time saying who has NOT been hacked - than naming places that have been hacked.

I know that doesn't fit with the usual suspects and their need to talk some shit....but that's life, and reality.

Anyways.....they are not going out of business, just refraining from wasting time arguing with those who have other agendas...

My thoughts exactly. It's been rough on the files lately.

The tide is going out in the gun industry. We will see who's swimming naked in the coming years, pulling in the reigns a bit can be a good business move.

The Bernie Sanders', hiLIARy Clinton's and the Andrew Cuomo's are out there waiting for the establishment Pubbies and Demoncrats in CONgress to totally thwart, frustrate and suppress The Donald's hope for change then they will pick up the broken pieces and put together a "progressive" collectivist, national-international socialist feral government to rule US.

Guns and ammo will once again be strongly bid.

American credit card companies are actually at fault. They refuse to upgrade their systems because they did a cost analysis and found it was cheaper to deal with the fraud and theft then to upgrade to a more secure system as has already taken place in Europe. We are litteraly using decades old technology and are vulnerable to all kinds of hacks and identity theft. I've had my identity stolen and I've never found out how or why. I use LifeLock now and have had no issues but that's 10 dollars a month I dident used to have to spend.

I used the term "tide" for a reason.

I kept getting damaged parts from them, so I complained then they just refused to sell me anything. It was their mistake not mine. But then again business has a right to refuse service. I posted about it then thread turned into drama, so I asked the mod to delete it. Life is too short to have a grudge

I got a Bulgarian gas block and fsb they listed as new old stock. They were beat to shit, had little or no blueing left. I called asked for a call tag and a refund. They wanted ME to pay to ship it back to them because of THEIR mistake and we're condescending and rude assholes! I opted not to send it back on my dime as I thought that was mighty shitty of them to charge me for THEIR mistake!

Bought a lot of merch from them. Often they had items no one else had. Always good to go in my book.

I also have bought many times from them over the years. Good deals on some stuff, looking in the right place at the right time helped me there. Had what I needed that no one else did other times, and at what I considered a fair price.

Face it, surpluse firearms has become a tough racket (actually any milsurp equipment)and prices are going up as their have been restrictions placed on restrictions, and there is a limited supply.

Never had a bad experience with APEX and they'll continue to be one of the first places I look for gun parts and accessories.

Sucks they are gone. I have paid a lot of money and gotten some pretty shitty condition kits though. But that issue isn't isolated to their company. It's a problem seems to come with the business they are in, and running away isn't going to change anything.

Sounds like they are trying to pull back to focus more on the business and some of the problems people have been reporting. Hopefully that is what they are doing.
I've bought lots of stuff from them over the years and have yet to experience anything bad.

Richard took time to talk with members here.
He is a good guy with good intentions.
I'm sure there must be a bigger picture here.
I'm not seeing it however.
