I don't use Midway as much as some of you guys, but I've never had a problem. Easy and quick every time. I have had a ton of problems with shippers and warehouses in my business lately.

I've tried to connect with White Oak Armament website. No luck. Can't even get it to open.

Here's my take. If your business is having short term problems, put an explanatory message on your website and/or phone answering system. Don't just leave customers and prospective customers in the dark.

And for cripe sake don't leave me waitng on the phone forever with periodic messages thanking me for my patience and saying how much my business is appreciated. Over and over.

I'm usually pretty tolerant, but this stuff just pisses me off.

More often than not, with shipping included, it's Midway.

This has been my experience as well. I've read more than once others say, "I usually find things cheaper elsewhere",
Maybe it depends on what you want ? ?

I made an order earlier today from Midway. I had a kind of special scope back ordered but all else was shipped and they said it will be here by Wednesday. I'd bet on Tuesday. I ordered as they gave me a birthday discount on some things I wanted. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

5 days in shipping and ups web site show the tracking number midway sent me is not in use, midway says it will be here tomorrow, never takes a week to get here 3 days tops. Not here by Wednesday I'll get on midway chat and demand a refund and will order from PSA.

I have never had a problem with Midway. They ship same day 98% of the time and have never had a problem with poor packing.

Can't say that about Lucky Gunner. Had a few plastic boxes of defensive ammo placed in a box that was 10 times bigger than needed and nothing but crumpled up paper for protection. The plastic boxes were destroyed and all ammo loose. Could blame UPS, but could have been packaged much better.

Have any of you tried to order anything from Bear Basin lately? Went through an ordeal with them recently. After a week of nothing, no contact, no status updates, I finally got hold of a human. Was told item was shipped, but they were too busy to send email or update their web site. The dude hangs up before I can ask for shipper info. Another week with no contact and no item and no tracking/shipper info I started calling again. Finally get the same guy and they admit that it hasn't shipped , but they will do so immediately. Four hours later still nothing. I call and leave a message to cancel the order. Contact the credit card and file a payment protest to stop payment.

At 10pm they send an email with tracking info. 10 pm! Next day I call, tell them of the CC protest and get a lecture about their suffering through Covid19 and how I should have more compassion for my fellow human beings! Told him if they had not told me a bold faced lie that none of this would have happened. Was willing to make immediate payment electronically, but after his lecture he hung up before I could offer.

NEVER again with that outfit!

Had a problem with bear basin a few years back, ordered a scope from them and when came the box was empty, wasent opened or anything. Called them and addressed this I think the owner, and I was told I was full of [bleep], yes he said it just like that. He looked up the shipping info and it showed the box weighed 3oz when shipped. I asked him who's full of [bleep] now I asked. A 3oz scope dam. He said he would get another package out to me told him not to borther because I'm full of [bleep], just refund my money I'll take my fill of [bleep] bussiness elsewhere. Last I ordered anything from them again.

Just ordered a bunch of stuff for Midway and it came in on time with everything perfect. I like that company.

Never really had a problem with Midway. I've been happy with their prices and service.

The only thing I don't care for is when they ship UPS Smartpost. But that's because UPS sucks and takes forever. Packages get sucked into slow orbit around that schitthole Federal Way, WA and can't break gravity for weeks. When they ship USPS Priority, it really is Nitro-Express shipping and arrive in 3-5 days.
