So here in RI, there's the whole 7 day cool down period before picking up a gun. Does that start after my FFL receives it or can I get the process going when I purchase from Bud's?

Also, I know there's an FFL that does the transfers for free but it's an hour from me.. I'll prolly end up paying the 25.

Thanks for the info.

Check your local pawnshops too. I found a pawnshop that does them for $10.

Here is MD the waiting time starts after your FFL recieves the gun AND files the paperwork with the state. I'm sure each state is different.

I think it starts with the completion of the FBI's NICS approval.

I ordered three guns from Bud's Gun Shop. Never a problem. I would go so far as to say they are quite proficient and dependable.

I ordered my last gun from Buds Police Supply...I'm assuming they're affiliated, and had a great experience. Two of my buddies just bought new guns from Buds and had nothing but good to say.

Yeah it's the same company. The police supply site just gives a little more of a discount for military and LE.

Yeah I picked up an M&P .45 with 3 magazines delivered for 447.00 and it got here pretty fast. I'll definitely use them again.

That's exactly why I ordered my M&P from them as well don't forget to send S&W your rebate form, but it takes a while to get the check from them.
