Default Midway USA notification but OOS

I got an email from Midway at 10:29 am that win primers were in stock. I was on the product page in 30 seconds and they are gone. Are they sending these notices out when product has already sold out???

Your email was lagging a bit. Primers came online about 1024 and are sold out except large rifle...

I just happened to stumple across these and still haven't gotten the alert from Midway.

It sux. I've had that happen more often than not with Midway. It's like playing the lottery.

I think it has to do where you place on their notification lists. I've been on stuff in literally seconds and gone. pretty sure somethings are sold out before one even gets the notification.

The same thing happened to me on back-ordered items. I even pulled over immediately and used my cel-phone but they were out. I called customer service and was told that if they get a shipment and there are only 100 in stock, they will go to the first 100 people. He told me he can't even get supplies and is in the same boat I (we) am.
Same thing with e-notice. I think there are people lurking at their keyboards waiting for in-stock.
"Lord, make my hand fast and accurate.
Let my aim be true and my hand faster
than those who would seek to destroy me.
Grant me victory over my foes and those who wish to do harm to me and mine.
Let not my last thought be 'If I only had my gun."
And Lord, if today is truly the day you call me home
Let me die in a pile of empty brass."
