BE AWARE THAT THERE IS A 10 DAY WINDOW FOR ACCESSORY RETURNS | Buds Gun Shop review

1.0
Details
I bought 2 magazines for a Christmas present and found out that the mags wouldnt fit the gun they were bought for. Contacted Buds and was told that I couldnt return because it had been longer than 10 days (Its been 18 days). That policy is total BS and a bad business practice. I wont be dealing with them again.

Gotta read the fine print when ordering, but use this as an opportunity to buy a firearm the mags actually will fit. However, give a local gun shop your business.

Horrible customer interaction | Buds Gun Shop review

1.3
Details
I called to inquire about a specific handgun. The person I spoke with said they did not have one in stock so I asked if they could order one and if so how long would be before it would be in the store. He told me that if they could order one they would have one in the store so no they could not order one. I hung up and called back and asked to speak to a manager. When the manager came to the phone he acted very disinterested and did not act like it was a big deal. This is why I would never recommend this store to anyone. Spend a little extra money and support a local shop instead of these inconsiderate tools.

Taking Fraudulent Orders | Buds Gun Shop review

1.3
Details
Ordered a Bushmaster Patrolman. Stock status confirmed during order. Budd suggested E-Check for 3% savings. Three days later called to again confirm order and shipping status. Rep said E-Check had not cashed and they were "trying" to fill order. I asked for confirmation of availability. They would not confirm! Called my bank to find E-Check was presented! Buds lied and took order without stock to ship. I cancelled order. Buds now wants 10% restocking fee...... what restocking! I informed bank. Buds are thieves!

WOW I am glad I read this I was just getting to make a very large order. Now I do not know what to do except find someone a little more honest and helpful.

They better wake up they are not the only vender in the sea. This scares me I think I will look else where.

I assume you sent Buds an actual copy of the FFL license, correct? Just giving them the name and phone does not work.

It is your job to get an actual "signed copy" of the FFL license and forward it to Buds. They keep a large list of FFLs on file from each time they sell in your area.

Just wondering why the confusion. I always just have my FFL fax or email them a copy.
