    Looking for an M&P9 Pro; Local shop is out.

    Anyone have any buying experience with them? I looked around online for complaints and there's quite a few.

    Although I've never used them, I've heard very positive reviews of Buds.

    i've transfered a dozen or so weapons for customers from them and none have ever had any issues. I have never bought from them myself though.

    Just put it in to google and a couple of BBB type boards came up with Buds posting on them.

    Thanks for all the info people - about to place the order. :)

    I've made one purchase from them and it was a trouble-free transaction. They were very communicative, which I appreciate.

    I have made 1 purchase from Bud's and I felt that it took too long to process my order. My co-worker got his in 3 business days though.

    Bought a couple handguns from them, one of them an M&P. They're G2G IMHO.

    If there was one complaint I'd have against them, it would be the time it takes to process an order.
    But if that's the only issue, and I feel it is... then they're fine in my book.

    You guys have to remember, they have a relatively small staff. And for how small they are, their CS is fantastic.
    You call them up with just about any question or issue and they'll take care of you.

    I haven't heard anything bad from them, but you should still shop around for the best deal.

    one of my employees bought a XDm from them. It took them almost a week to finally ship it. Other than that, no issues.

    Check out gunbroker.com and gunsamerica.com, good selections usually and they can set you up with a local FFL if you don't have one already. Last year I bought my Colt 6920 and DS FAL off gunbroker.com. Smooth transactions and good prices.

    True, pay with check or money order. Most have a 3-4% CC fee.

    I ordered a PX4 on a Sunday night and it arrived at my FFL on Thursday morning.
