I've looked at Midway a few times when ordering and they were always higher priced than most places I found. I can't recall ever ordering from them because of it.

His policy of limiting ammo purchases to 3 boxes may be good for those who need hunting ammo, but I usually shoot that many every week at clays, and it would cost me a bundle on shipping and keep the UPS man pretty busy. I can get a case from Rogers, cheaper per box, and with free shipping.


I shop the same way! Living in Alaska, it’s hard to get some companies to even ship here. I got a good laugh on Saturday. I ordered a charging handle from DVOR.com and it arrived in a huge box all by itself. My son ordered a gas block and a buffer spring from BDU, you could have put three pairs of size 12 work boots in the box they shipped it in, good grief. Many times I do not order as the shipping on what I am trying to order is a lot more than the item I’m ordering. Mention flat rate boxes to some of these companies and they seem to get insulted. That tells me they make more money shipping the item than selling it. Too many times I’ve been charged x amount for shipping only to have it cost 2/3’s less, I’ve yet to have that difference ever refunded to me.

It's his store and he can ask what he wants. Midway has often been a bit higher than others, a couple of bucks here and there. When he is asking more than the manufacturer? It does not put him in a very good light.

Kind of sad to see.

Well he sure as hell isn't spending any of his money on orthodontia work.

I placed an order with Midsouth shooters supply on the 19th still processing. Don't think Larry would have been there.

Good luck and shoot straight y'all

Typed up a product review on MIdway site, then it told me I had to disable ad block.

Bad Midway!

No review!

Me too. Bottom line is the price to my door. I don’t care who I buy from, but this fall Midway has been the cheapest most of the time for components and equipment.

Took Midsouth 11 days before they shipped my order, but they were saying up to 10 days.

I want to know how Midway can ship in less then 24 hrs every time when Midsouth, Grafs, or Natchez can often take days before they ship……

It's the investment they made in their automated shipping process.
Should be a youtube video that shows it.
