Just got off the phone with my brother and am less than impressed by the service he got from Buds Gun Shop in Lexington, KY. (actually their police supply store).

I have bought three guns from Buds store in Paris, KY and have had very few issues. Other than having to wait for help in a very busy store, and that I can live with. I've been to the police supply store and found the service "cold".

So he has decided to sell his AR-15. Excuse me for not having details.... After taking it to a few local shops the consensus was they would give him anywhere from $400 to $450. He paid $400 three years ago. I told him of my good experiences with Buds so he took my recommendation and contacting Gurney at BGS, my brother was told they would give him $700 for it. WOW, we thought. So off he went for the hour-plus drive to Lexington....upon arrival. Gurney decided he that not only did he not want to pay $700 for it, he didn't want the gun at all and totally blew him off.

Am I right in thinking this is bull shat? If he didn't want or need any AR-15's why didn't he say that on the phone. Why make my bro drive 80 miles for nothing?

I will definitely not be doing biz with that location and will think long and hard before buying from Buds period.

I have heard and seen this going on. Some gun shops are a$$es. That's just the way they are. Just take your gun to other shops and see what they will give. Also, try to talk in person with the gun shop. Just me 2 cents.
