Why is it that although you are a dual citizen they still stamp you?
 
The last 2 times I went I got stamped with the maximum period that I can stay. Someone explain.

what do you present to the immigration officer when you arrive into Barbados. I present my US Passport and my Citizen Certificate.. I've never been stamped with any type of maximum time to stay on island.

Agreed, it would be weird to stamp a "local" passport, but perfectly normal to stamp a foreign one.

When I return to the UK using my US passport I expect to get it stamped, but I can't imagine why they would ever stamp my British one if I used that.

I enter with my Barbados passport and no one ever asks about my UK one... so which are you presenting on arrival?

The last time the OP asked this question he advised that he only presents his British passport. It seems he didn't take the advice offered.

Here, they just stamp the arrival date, even in my british passport, as their computer knows im also a local citizen, which is smart when you consider it.

UK Grenada. .this is Barbados .. remember. and the same place that will not accept my US Passport along with my Barbados Government Issued ID Card but will only accept my US Passport and my Decree of Citizenship Certificate, that is old and been folded in the same small wallet for years. they tell me my Government Issued ID isn't valid for entry. .no.. not by itself.. but. . it proves I'm a citizen of the island. and that's what they need. but. We shall see what happens in Mid May when I return. from my trip next week..
