Buds Gun Shop (Shipping)
 
I ordered a CIA Uzi carbine from Buds on the morning of the 8-4-11. My order is still processing, they still have not shipped my UC-9. I bought my Mosin Nagant from Buds a couple months ago and the shipping time was 4 days.

I know on the their site it says 3-7 days to ship your gun but come on.
I bought a AR-15 and AK-47 from Cheaper Than Dirt and I had it at my FFL in 3 days. Buds gun prices a great that's why I have ordered my last 2 guns from them but i am beginning to think I should have gone through CTD or J&G.

It has been 4 days and they have not even shipped the gun. They drop ship 90% of their orders. What the hell can take so long. Maybe I am just being impatient. I do alot of business on-line and am just used to prompt shipping.
I called a representative today and was very polite in asking about my order status, unfortunately he was very rude and was no help.

Anybody else have any shipping problems with Buds?

I have had several purchases through them. Not one issue.

You are the first member I've heard that has had trouble with them.

If their CS is poor, take your business elsewhere.

I called them this morning and the representative was kind of arrogant, and acted like it was a chore to tell me it should ship sometime or another.:eek:

Having the firearm in stock helps.
Bud's uses other dealers stock in their inventory. I get firearms in that were sold by Bud's, but I have to list other entities as senders.

I ordered a CZ from Buds not too long ago. The shipment was delayed, but after leaving them a note in their feedback they shipped it that week and upgraded the delivery to UPS Next Day Air Saver.

Impact was a little different. I had a Beretta on order from them. It took two months to ship even after saying it would within a week after ordering. They didn't say much more than that it will ship when it ships. They didn't upgrade the shipping either. Now I still buy at Impact, but because of this last experience I've been pushing more orders through Buds.

In any case, I concur with the post that says essentially, "Vote with your dollars."

Personally, I just don't think you can have it all. You can have 2 out of 3, which 2 do you want? (Fast Shipping, Great Customer Service, Lowest Prices).

Getting all 3 is extrememly rare and if there were a seller like that, we'd all be using them (like Amazon).

A lot of the interweb sellers dont have a storeroom full of firearms waiting for you to buy. They just have a web list of what their suppliers have. So when you buy from them you sometimes gotta wait cuz they dont have a real inventory.

I hear ya. I won't be using Buds ever again. CTD is a little more money but they ship their guns promptly with less shipping charges. I have nothing but good experiences with CTD. I just thought I would save a little money and get the same gun through Buds. That was a mistake.

Personally, I like Bud's and will use them again. And guns ship free from Buds. (Shipping is included in the quoted price.)
