    I've done business with Midway for a long time, first class operation. Brownell's too.

    Mr. Potterfield is a one-of-a-kind businessman these days. I've spent a lot of money with Midway and I'll continue to do so as long as Mr. Potterfield's way of doing business continues there.

    Mr. Potterfield, if for some reason you see this thread please know you have my total respect. Thank you Sir.

    Midway is always the first place I look for reloading components. I like Grafs and Buffalo Arms, too, but Midway simply has better stock and (usually) better pricing.

    While I believe 100% in free market capitalism, I personally prefer the no price increase/limited quantities approach. I think the vendors doing this will fair better when everything settles down. I know I appreciated Armalite doing so, as the need to get a couple more Gen II AR-10 mags became pressing here in CO, and because of their policy, I was able to get 2 more at normal pricing.

    I've always been pleased with Midway. I understand why it's gone but I really miss their annual catalogs (those and Grizzly tool were great to flip through between projects).

    Fella's;

    I've received that e-mail also. I'm sure I got it because of the business I've done with them over the years. But they've made sure I'm going to be doing business with them for years to come.

    When times are stressed, we find out who our real friends are. And who they are not.

    Never forget a friend.

    I remember when you called to order components, Larry would sometimes answer the phone. It was free shipping then. He has been great to us for a long time. Miss the free shipping though...

    Much respect, for sure. When the frenzy stops and the product is on the shelf again, I know who I'll buy from and who I won't - Mr. Potterfield can count on my continued business, unlike some others who I now regret spending money with in the past.

    I also love Larry's youtube gunsmithing videos. Nice to know the face behind the business.
    He's either a really nice guy or an incredibly shrewd businessman. I reckon he's both.

    Midway is a class act, they are my first go-to place for my handloading supplies and equipment. Probably the most efficient and easy to use on-line store I've ever seen and coupled with their excellent customer service/communication makes them number one in my book.

    I have purchased a good bit from MidwayUSA over the years, and this just makes it even easier to spend more money with them!

    +1; bought my first ever upper from them over 10 years ago and try to use them whenever a need arises that my LGS cannot meet. The videos are a big help as I am not a gunsmith! Will continue to do business with them.

    Honor and integrity never go out of style or grow old. Midway USA and Larry Potterfield are examples of this.
