    They have said they were getting them on 3/7/13 for a while. I checked this morning at 10:30 Eastern and now it says 5/5/13. Anyone know if they actually got them in and sold them out that fast?

    Did their website say in stock though? If so that would probalby indicate they just sold that fast.

    They have been selling out within 3 or so minutes. If you have a smart phone and are signed up for arrival notifications you can usually get an order in. If you don't , good luck.

    Although they say they are not taking backorders, I gotta wonder if there were already backorders in place (prior to them stopping)?

    Yep you have that smartphone in times like these. I'm constantly checking email for product notification or shipment notices. If you are not connected to the net or standing in line waiting for the store to open so you can get first crack at the ammo delivery you are not going to be doing much shooting. A sorry state of affairs for sure but you have to do what needs to be done.

    Midway doesn't always put them up on their site, if you know a shipment is coming you have to call.
