If you ordered BX25s from Midway, I wouldn't count on EVER getting them. I ordered mine over 8 months ago, and, as of today, they say they still don't have product in stock to fill their backorders.
Go figger!!

As they are available direct from shopruger.com, why the consternation?
CDNN also has them - for two bucks LESS than Ruger...

Get 'em shipped right to your mailbox!

My guess is they have a HUGE backorder list for them. They're kinda the go-to for a LOT of people and they did have the lowest price on them even if not available. Thousands of people order 4 or 5 each and you're a looooong ways behind. Ruger isn't going to get a batch and send all to one retailer. Share and share alike.

Why the consternation?? All the ones available today are way higher priced than the ones that were ordered 8 months ago!! (Gouge, Gouge!!)

Before the madness the BX 25's were $25 @ CDNN, now they are $30. CDNN does raise prices on high demand items but gouging is not how I would describe this. Joe

:roll: One more time... supply & demand...been around for eons. Would YOU sell your $800 AR for $800 during that frenzy or would you think "hey, I can make an extra few dollars on this right now" and sell for $900, $1000, even $1300? Would YOU sell the $23 BX25 for that now or want to get $40 for it? Careful now, anything besides that old price makes you a "gouger".

If you caught the right sale, CDNN had them for $17.99 a couple of times before December 2012.

Some people just don't get the fact that costs rise and those costs are passed on to the end user. The simplest concept in any economy.

Some just enjoy living in the past, I guess.

IMHO, an accepted "Back Order" is a contract to supply a product at the agreed upon price, especially when the product has already been paid for in advance. Nothing to do with "living in the past", or current "supply and demand" hokum.

Midway probably has more backorders than most other vendors.

My God, order them from somewhere else and shut-up about it already.

PS, "price gouging" is a liberal/socialist invention. :roll:

$21 for out of stock items sounds high to me... shouldn't have to pay more than $15 for something they don't have... I mean, really!

Yeah, free would be even better. I shelled out the cash when they said they would be on B/O for three to four weeks. That was nearly nine months ago. Guess I'll see if they will refund my money.
Just ordered 2 more HC3R mags, already in transit.

Hey CraigC
I would be glad to order them from somewhere else and "shut-up already" if I hadn't already paid for them when I ordered other items that were shipped. Right now I have no mags and they have my money. See the problem here??
You can call "price gouging" anything you desire, but the end result is still the same. The consumer gets it in the end (literally), and the vendor makes MORE money.
Anyway, to make y'all happy, I ordered more HC3R mags, that are already being shipped, and am prepared to eat the loss on the BX25s. You won't hear any more of this saga. BUT, beware of ordering and paying in advance.
Hope your ordering experiences are better than mine.

No reason to delete the thread, just let it die.

"Price gouging" discourages hoarding. More people who actually need whatever it is will pay the higher price and have it, versus just the few who got in line first hoarding them all. If you don't like the price, don't pay it, that simple. Nobody is "getting it in the end". You either voluntarily pay the asking price or you don't.

Back in 2004, we had FIVE hurricanes hit Florida in just a few weeks. The damage was horrible. We had miles and miles of powerlines, cable and telephone destroyed. The idiot hoarders filled up every container they had with gasoline and got in fights at the pump, only to sit at home with no need for all this gasoline. Or drive around gawking at the damage. It caused an artificial shortage. Meanwhile, the people who actually needed gasoline to clean up the mess, because it was their job, couldn't get it. We would've loved to have paid inflated prices for gasoline because it would've done more good in our tanks than in milk jugs in Joe Blow's garage. Don't fall into that overly emotional kneejerk crap you hear on the evening news about evil capitalists "price gouging". It might just do more good than harm.

Why do so many otherwise intelligent people continue to cry "gouging" whenever they find prices higher than yesteryear? Is this yet another a product of public schools?
The only legitimate issue I see in this thread is the fact that an order was taken, monies were taken, and the product not delivered in good faith. That is what states' Attorney Generals' departments of consumer protection are for; however it seems to be forgotten or "too much trouble" to file a real consumer complaint these days - a lost skill?

Pricewise, everyone really needs to...Get over it.
Everything goes up. For those who were not alive or not learning in the '70s, this is an inflation economy, get used to higher prices for the same item. Wake up, smell the coffee, and tell your kids whom you voted for and why.
