Well unfortunately(for midway) i made the order at PKfirearms.
the only place that had everything i needed in stock in one order.

Midway wont miss a couple bucks.

Ill still buy from them when it doesnt lag :43:
Im just too impatient. When I want it.. I want it now.

one of their provider's routers in Herndon is lagging all over the place.

And besides, this is the wrong time of the time of the night to try hitting an East Coast e-store. Midnight backups and such.

It's been this way all day. I tried to add some powder measure baffles to my cart, this morning. The search function timed out several times.

What does it matter if their site is lagging? It's not like they have anything in stock. :nopity:

Larry is a GOD... or at least I think he is.

I've spent WAY too much on his retirement plan. :D

I snapshot things and backup offline, midnight backups would be a pretty lame excuse for loosing sales. :)

N00bs.

Tip:

1) Go to Google.
2) Type in "[specific item you are looking for] + midwayusa" in search bar
3) Click "Cached" underneath link description
4) ??????
5) Profit

Voila. Problem solved.

Really? I went to look for .45 bullets and all they had were semi-wadcutters. They don't have any large pistol primers other than magnums.

Can't get in either; Midway has been constipated for a couple of days now.

Midway is like that. It seems they're always in a state of construction/updating.:shrug:

I love MidwayUSA. I have spent about 7K there since becoming a customer. However, in the last year or so, their website (which is otherwise fantastic) has had trouble loading, etc. I am not a techno-geek, but it seems like their server(s) can't handle whatever storefront software and quantity of items they have. They should really upgrade; they can afford it.

It's a little slow for me, but not unbearably so.

FWIW.

They are always slow. And I will occasionally run into problems trying to go back a page. It's just the way it is. They are still cheaper than most places.

I tried to order online this morning but it was lagging, actually managed to call the place, speak to a human & place the order before the page fully loaded :)
New catalog only arrived yesterday & I'm already $300 in the hole...
