MidwayUSA, one of the nation's largest shooting, hunting and outdoor companies, is expediting orders of AR-15 parts and accessories as talk of an executive order from President Obama continue in Washington D.C. The company is doing its best to deliver parts ordered by customers before executive action is taken.

Dear ******,

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.

Sincerely,

MidwayUSA Customer Service

Tuesday Vice President Joe Biden, who said executive orders were ready to go just last week, will present new gun control recommendations to President Obama, which were gathered through a series of meetings with advocacy groups. During a press conference Monday Obama reiterated his intent to use his executive power saying, "I'm confident there are some steps we can take that don't require legislation." The President did not go into detail about what his executive order would cover but many on Capitol Hill have suggested a ban of semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15, a ban of high-capacity ammunition magazines and even the ban of semi-automatic handguns.
