Why is Midway's shipping so high?

Lot's of people buy from MidwayUSA but I can't figure why. I've gotten orders ready several times and I've always stopped when the shipping seemed so unreasonable. Tonight, I had an order of 3 barrel cleaners; total weight about 1.5 lbs; say 3 lbs in the box. Total cost of cleaners $30 and cheapest shipping offered by Midway was $16.

Maybe I'm spoiled by Amazon's free shipping but Midway is just ridiculous...

Just wondering if anyone else feels the same way.

Welcome to LRH and enjoy!

I'm with you all the way. I had a run in with shiny nose Larry Potterfield about 4 yrs. ago and havn't bought from Midway since. His Fair Rates was one of the issues. A shooting partner of hasn't used for about the same time frame.

Also, the product price is normally a few $$$ less from places like Midsouth Shooters Supply, Cheaper than dirt, etc., Etc.

Once I pick something or a group of things, I tally it up and compare it to Natchez, cheaper then dirt and pick the cheapest. Midway often gives free shipping with orders over $100., if that helps.

Rarely do I buy from there...only as a last resort. Too many other places that get my business.

Re: Why is Midway's shipping so high?

shipping is often treated as another profit center.
Will continue until MORE of us stop
doing business with midway.
