    I was able to place the item on my wish list while I did some research and checked things out. Buds had the best price round and the ease of checkout was fantastic. I confirmed with the transfer recipient about them receiving the firearm … More and everything was smooth. Looking forward to heading out to the range.

    I love this place. I just wish every time I went. I didn’t have to lie to my wife about where I was going and where I was spending all my money. They need to come up with some kind of way to give you receipts for something else or at bare … More minimum and give you a receipt for a lot less than what you paid, that way when I go home tonight, I’m not in trouble. I wish they had a location that was closer to home. That way I could make small payments overtime and maybe she wouldn’t notice this small amounts disappearing as we all know. Ammo cost has gone to the roof in the last few years but steadily on the decrease wish we could make payments on ammo too, so I could do more what I like in the backyard. Everyone there has been super friendly and helpful and the staff is just honestly awesome. Keep up the hard work.

    First time here to Buds Gun Shop and I was totally impressed. The store was so organized and clean. I did purchase a Heritage 22 revolver for groundhog control in my barn. The guy who helped me was polite and patience with my questions. … More My first time there, won't be my last. This is one business that cares about their customers. Thank you Bud.

    I had first called the shop to get details. Both reps I spoke to were friendly and helpful. If they were not able to find the answer they gave me contact info for me to go directly to the manufacturer. I ended up purchasing online and … More it was a trouble free experience.
