Wow! Seven whole days.
I've transferred hundreds of Bud's firearms to my customers without a single problem.

If you wanted immediate satisfaction why did you not buy from your local gun store? (because Bud's was waaaaay cheaper, right?)

I've bought several handguns from Bud's, new and used, and never had a problem. A little time for shipping and handling is to be expected just like buying anything else on line. Also, they ship the least expensive way, how else do you think they can include it in their already very low prices?

Like dogtown said, if you wanted the gun immediately you should have bought locally.

Total Cost of Purchase

OK, I know this sounds pretty nerdy/anal, but, when I purchase anything and seeing a possible online vendor (antiques and "only one like it on the planet" items) I take the wait time (at 8hr/day) and multiply it by the prevailing minimum wage. If I'm not saving that much I buy it locally. First at a Mom & Pops place then a Corporate store. A friend uses his hourly wage times the 8hr/day time frame........he always buys locally. FWIW, I have a local gunstore that I have had excellent results from. I take my Iphone in to his store. I browse to Gunbroker, Guns America, Midway, etc. I show the owner the item and usually I have it in 1-2 business days tops. You see as a Gun Store owner has a huge "database". People come in and want to trade, or sell, or get a price estimate on a gun they want to sell.
I tried this same approach with another Gun store. He told me essentially, Poke it up your Liberal".....he went out of business after about 1yr.
