Midway Catalogue

A 196 page (counting covers) Midway 2019 reloading catalogue was delivered today. It's been almost forever ago when ol' Larry decided to stop publishing his yearly issues. Sent him an e-mail thanking him, and added I suspect I'm not the only non-millennial (Neanderthal?) who enjoys perusing a paper catalogue. I wish he would revive the FFL holder discount.

Got mine Monday, mouth fell open when I saw it in the mailbox. They quit doing the master catalog what, 6 or 7 years ago? All I've seen is occasional sale flyers since then. Still have three days left on my birthday discount.....

Interesting, I haven't seen even a flyer in many years and much longer since I've even heard of the birthday discount. Thought all that was history about the time his daughters took over the business.

Got the same catalog this week. Haven’t had time to look at it yet.

Midway has gone through a lot of changes and has made a good effort not to repeat dumb moves like when they quit offering FFL discounts and were really screwing their customers on freight.. They really stepped it up and have some of the best service and prices in the industry now and have won back my business.

When their shipping went through the roof is when I stopped using them. I ordered two heaters for the safe and they refused to put them in the same box, insisted on two boxes and two inflated shipping charges. That was about the time the daughters had taken over. I guess they still have those heaters cause I didn't buy them.

Got it Monday. First thing I did was look at powder and primer prices. Looked to me like powder went up a couple bucks. I don't buy powder from them but usually check out the prices. They have a "one Box one hazmat" deal going.

seems like an end of first quarter start of second quarter price increase is becoming a yearly deal.

I inquired about the FFL discount several months ago, because I discovered that my 03 license is still listed, but was told that the policy is definitely discontinued.

Got Mine....can't believe the insanity of producing a printed catalog in this day and age! But It sure is nice!

My copy of the MidwayUSA catalog came a few days ago--not long after I ordered some items from that crew for the first time in a couple years. Graf's gets most of my business since Bwana Larry's shipping and handling scams finally became more than I was willing to put up with. The S&H on this order was reasonable--maybe they learned a few things during my hiatus. Graf's didn't have and doesn't stock 4 of the items I wanted to base the order upon, so I gritted my teeth and tried MidwayUSA again. Those scams left a very bad taste in my mouth, but MidwayUSA has stuff that Graf's doesn't handle. Graf's will still get "Right of first refusal", though.

Got the catalog, I was surprised. Its nice to just turn the pages and browse with paper rather than trying to browse the website. Hard to use the PC while setting on the "throne".

I spent the $ and got a print copy of Brownells catalog for just the reasons stated above. I haven't seen a Midway, Grafs, Natchez, Cabelas, Red Head, Bass Pro or any other outdoor catalog here in several years. Hadn't really thought about it, but it's been a long time.

Silly old man.
An iPad is a tablet, not a smart phone.
That said, my iPad doesn’t swat flies either. But it does far better at viewing this forum than my Midway catalog.

Got one and enjoy it.

Went to place an order and the item was out of stock,backorder OK. Being a touch impatient, got on fleabay and got it 2$ cheaper.New,same item. I order from Midway often enough. When an item is,backorder OK.... I do like the way they're system notification works.
