Natchez wholesales to dealers in TN, AL and other states. They will not sell retail in those states and be in direct competition with their dealers. I'm in AL and can't buy from them either but I do understand their system.


Since that is the case, they should make it clear on every page that they will not sell to folks in those states, so we don't waste our time. Businesses are free to carry out their business however they like, but please - let us know so we don't waste our time!

I buy from them all the time with my CC and ship to louisville to the inlaws and pick it up when i visit

i use their address for ship to and for billing info on card but put it in my name works fine

I might try that. In all honesty, I kinda hate to give them the business, but it is a great deal on cameras.

This is common when dealers and distributors are concerned...Retailers won't buy from Wholesalers who sell direct to end users...Retailers buy in large quantity...end users buy in small quantities...The idea is...would you rather hire 20 people to package up that pack of shells or have 4 people to ship a pallet...It's not a personal thing, all biz...I've been on both sides of it...so, you could probably find a retailer in TN and buy it for the same price you would buy it for online...minus shipping

A few weeks ago I found a great deal on 9mm ammo they had on sale. I put it in my basket and went to check out and only realized something was up when I couldn't find tn on the drop down box.... I was told they dealt with Chattanooga shooters supply and I could probably get the same deal if a dealer would order for me but I didn't try since I found some local for about a dollar a box more by the time I figured shipping..

I understand the concept of retail and wholesale. I have been in business at different times myself. But, I have NEVER seen a situation that if you are from a certain state, you cannot buy from that business. That is a ridiculous manner to conduct your business, if you ask me. Most wholesalers will only sell to businesses. Manufacturers will generally charge a higher price than their retailers to protect their retailers business. But, it seems to me Natchez SS is trying have their cake and eat it to. They are try to be a wholesaler and a retailer - and punishing the people who live in TN, AL, and GA so they can have it both ways. Again, it is a free country, they can run their business how they want. I don't have to spend my money there (matter of fact - I can't spend my money there!)The only request I have, is for them to post in big, bold letters at the top of every page that they do not sell to people in AL, TN and GA, instead of in tiny print, buried at the bottom of the page, so I don't waste almost 2 hours of my life!
