Default buds gun shop. what a joke.

This is redic. Ordered my c9 from them on Saturday at 10am. Order is still processing as of now. Figured is save myself $30 after fees by ordering from them and maybe wait an extra day over the 72 hour wait time in IL for hand guns. Not so. I talked to them and they said basically sorry were busy. Really you're backed up 4 business days for shipping guns I doubt that. Looks like I wont be shooting this weekend.

That is not the norm for Buds from my experience. Sorry it happened.

Who else has used Bud's and what has been your experience? I've been thinking about using them but I have my concerns.

I've heard a number of good and bad things about them so I really would be interested in reading more feedback.

I wish I would of just kept my money local. They would have to be shipping like 250 guns a day to have a backlog that took what is now hoing to be 5 business days.

I ordered my Arcus through Bud's. Shipped in two business days, took five business days to get here, I went from ordering to sitting at the dealer doing the paperwork in a week and a half. First time I ever bought a gun online, and the rep I talked to was extremely helpful and nice no matter how dumb my questions were, and trust me, there was a lot of them lol. But I wouldn't complain about four days. When I ordered online through my dealer, it took over a month for them to ship and before that point they had no clue what was happening with the order. At least Bud's is communicating with you somewhat.

I don't get it, I know their policy says 3-7 business days to ship but come on aside from the holiday season it shouldn't be any more than the 3 days. I feel like i could box up at least 300 guns a day myself

I doubt if stuff ships on the weekend. I'd say don't buy from them anymore if you are not happy. They said 3-7 days. You have choices. They may be shipping 1000 a day.

I don't plan on ordering from them again unless they have some redic deal.
