I bought a couple of different guns from them last year and made it pretty hard on them, unintentionally. I had to change payment methods to expedite the shipping, and they did it without a hitch. Very strong customer service and I'll buy from them again in the future.

Only ordered a couple of times but always easy. Actually waiting on a gun from them now.

I accidentally chose my old address on file and didn't catch it until they shipped part of the order. Emailed them and they changed the address on the rest of the order with no issues.

I will shop at Buds even if they are higher priced, which is rare, because of the ease of the whole process.

I don't normally buy brand new firearms, but I bought a brand new Colt CRE-18 from Bud's a few years ago. I made a lower offer than their listed price that they accepted (only about $20.00, I think), and the whole transaction took place without any problems. Yes, I'd buy from them again.

Good luck,

Dave

I've transferred many firearms from them. As someone mentioned, they don't always ship on time (they drop ship some so time is out of their control). Some times they have the best price, some times your local FFL can beat them.

Bought lots of guns from them. Actually just bought one a week ago. Shipping, while not Amazon prime fast, is quick enough. They have my FFL in the system so I just pick his name from the drop down and he emails me in about a week when it comes in! No problems at all with Buds

I placed an order with Bud's last Wednesday. Payment cleared on Thursday but I have not received any updates or shipping notices. They are going to have to hump it to get the gun shipped within their 3-7 day timeframe.

I guess paying by e-check delays processing. It cleared on my end within 24 hours but maybe takes longer to show up on their end.
If I use Bud's again I will not do e-check payment.

It does. Their site says payments made by e-check will be held for 5 business days to clear to their bank.
