Here is how my most recent process went with Bud's.
Last Friday aternoon I ordered a S&W M&P 9. (Was impossible to find at any local gun shop since everybody and their relative scarfed up "high capacity" 9 mms in the last 30 days.)
On Saturday the handgun was listed as "IN Shipping".
On Thursday I noticed that it shipped on Wednesday.
It arrived at my FFL this morning, Friday, around 10:00 am.
My FFL called me at 10:30 am to let me know if was in and come pick it up anytime.
I plan to meet with my FFL this afternoon to pay the $25.00 FFL fee and pick up my new handgun.
So far, this transaction went better than I expected. I was concerned that Bud's was swamped and it would take much longer to get the handgun shipped. I'll know more this afternoon.
