    I haven't used them, but wanted to check them out.
    I thought I'd fix the link:

    I have, unfortunately, I bought a Llama (the first and last time ever) but Buds was a pretty good experience, shop around though, by the time you add in shipping and FFL transfer you might just break even if you buy at home.

    I go to the range there every couple of months.
    I haven't bought anything from them, but they have pretty good prices. They have always been friendly and seem knowledgeable enough. I was recently looking at some kel-tec pa3's there.

    If you have something specific you are going to buy there, let me know and if you aren't in a big hurry I could drop in and look it over in person if you like.

    I bought 4 Mec-Gar magazines from them for my 226 several months ago. Good prices, good service, prompt shipping.

    I'd use them again for non-firearms stuff, but I'm leary of buying firearms long distance.

    Never heard of them before, but now that I've seen the website, I might look into them more closely. Thanks for the link.

    Thank you.

    It really isn't much of an effort on my part though, I drop in the place fairly often just to look anyway. Then again, that could be said for half the gun stores in the state. LOL!

    I can also vouch for Bud's. I shoot there probably once a month (if it's raining on shooting day) and have purchased from them before. Everyone is pretty friendly and fairly knowledgeable.

    I haven't purchased anything from their online store, but if it's anything like the retail site, you'd be good to go. They are a rather large gun store, so that'd explain to me how they can move guns for so cheap.

    I have purchased a HK from Bud's. Price was good and delivery prompt. I would recommend them highly. Be aware of the extra costs. They charge 3% for credit card use, plus shipping and then you have the transfer fee at your FFL dealer. Their prices are usually very low,but if you add the extras, sometimes local is about the same.

    Exactly. I bought my Remmy 700 there but only because it was a discontinued model that they happened to have. Shops are going up on transfer fees because of internet marketing like this. Can't blame them really, but that's how it is.
