Apparently a lot of folks with backorders from MidwayUSA, a fairly large firearms parts and accessories supplier, have been getting this message:
We have been holding some products for you, waiting for other items to arrive so we could ship your order complete. However, we believe an Executive Order could be released any day prohibiting the sale of certain products such as high-capacity magazines and AR-15 parts and accessories. Therefore we have done a partial release of your backorders to ensure that any of these items and other items we had in inventory waiting to ship complete are all on their way, in case such an Order is forthcoming. You will receive a shipping notification shortly. Other items on backorder, that we have not yet received, are not affected by this partial release.
We appreciate your understanding and your business. We always put Customer Satisfaction first and believe this action is in the very best interest of our Customers.
