Dropshipping from MidwayUSA
MidwayUSA is a privately held American retailer of various hunting and outdoor-related products. The company is headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, and sells in the continental United States.
Ely Arms, Inc., the original name of MidwayUSA, was a well-planned, small start-up gun shop in Columbia, Missouri – opening on June 18, 1977. Larry Potterfield, with his next younger brother Jerry, opened the business in a 151 square meters metal, pole-frame building. Jerry sold his half interest to Larry in 1980 and returned home to the farm.
The mail-order division was started quite modestly later in 1977, with a small offering of ‘hand-made’ 8mm Japanese pistol ammunition and 25 Remington rifle ammunition. In 1980 Midway received the first shipment of what was to be a total production run of 500,000 rounds of 8mm Nambu brass, produced by B.E.L.L. Labs of Chicago. Much of this brass was loaded into ammunition and can still be found at gun shows in a bright orange box.
And only in 2014 MidwayUSA became an online-only retailer moving away from mail orders and the master catalog upon which the company was built.
