    Default Midway has ammo order on "hold"

    My wife ordered me 1000 rnds 55 gr 223 fmj for reloading the night before the school shootings as a Christmas present. They were in stock when she ordered, but now they are on "hold". Tryed to call but was on hold forever so we gave up till tomorrow. hpoe its just a F-up and they arent caving like some.

    So they sent an e-mail today saying they oversold by 2 (the exact number of items we ordered,2 boxes of 500 rnds) and your credit card has been credited with the amount of purchase. WTF? No backorder, nothin'. I dont think they ran out just before they filled my order. The items were in stock when ordered. Maybe it was an f-up, but it sounds fishy to me.

    Was reading a thing about this earlier that the computerized inventory system most merchants use cannot handle the sheer volume of orders that are pouring in.

    Brownells apparently sold 3.5 years worth of (sales wise) of just magpul Pmags in a 72 hour period last weekend.

    CDNN has completely suspended online ordering due to the volume.

    I don't think anything fishy, just that they are probably swamped due to the high volume of the holiday season and the massive panic buy at the same time.

    Classic Arms and J&G Sales have either sent email notices or posted on their home pages that they are swamped and not answering phones and stock is depleted on most items like semiauto rifles, mags, ammo, etc. SG Ammo is out of everything and they closed up shop a few days early before their listed Christmas "vacation". What sites do have anything left have jacked up prices. I went through a somewhat high end shop and put out a chunk of change for a 5.45 VEPR conversion (most everything from AR to AK is sold out).

    Should be tough getting anything for a few months now. I was at a couple shops and they were answering the phones with the same conversation "we're sold out" and "don't know when we are getting anymore".
