  1. Default Buds gun shop???

    Any of you gents/ladies ever use Buds gun shop for a firearm purchase? I've used Gallery of Guns before and it's pretty simple. My FFL dealer that I use is one of Buds recommended transfer locations (these are apparently in green when choosing your FFL). I am assuming it's as easy as pay, wait, fill forms, go home with gun? Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jess

    It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

    Bunch! Use them... usually cheapest, sometimes slow, pay attention to how you pay and payment wait times.

    I've done 9 rifles through Bud's and I love it. I like their layaway program too. It's always been quick shipping to my FFL. It is worth joining their club if you plan on using them frequently. There are some guns that you can only get as a member and some other deals along with it.

    I've looked at Bud's and always seem to fine better deals on gunbroker. I have bought 4 guns on their and really like it and I've always saved hundreds

    From my experiences, I wouldn't hesitate to use either Bud's or Grab A Gun. I've used Grab A Gun the most for the on-line stuff I've done.

    I haven't used Bud's, but I have made several purchases through Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore. The prices have always been good, with free shipping to your FFl dealer.

    Bud's sells a scatload of weaponry....high volume competitive pricing & e-solicitation. Never used em...no particular reason.

    Been good to me on a handful of transactions...got some Winchester waterfowl loads by the case a couple of seasons ago at an absolute steal compared to everywhere else.

    I've ordered from them twice and couldn't be happier. I was able to find a FFL close to me with a $20 transfer fee.

    I've used them, but Bud's is barely a mile from my house. Mule and antelope on the other hand...

Its purpose is to orient our conduct and to allow us to measure the progress accomplished. In this sense, the advancement achieved in the ethics of hunting is undeniable.

    Just ordered from them last week. Pretty smooth process. Delivery takes 4-7 business days depending on where you live.

    Ordered my gun and it was at my FFL in 2 days. Very smooth process. Thanks to all who replied.

    Yeah nothing against Bud's at all, but I've bought and sold a decent number of rifles in the last 10 years and every time I go to buy one Whittaker's is the cheapest I can find it.

    They had free shipping to anywhere in the US for a long time. Not sure they still do. 10% off everything for the month of May going right now.
