Ordered a gun that hasn't shipped yet and looking at the order it appears that I accidently clicked on the wrong FFL for delivery. I contacted them via their chat line and was told to call tomorrow and ask for a supervisor and maybe they could cancel my order. I'm a little slow sometimes, but I think I get the message. The gun I bought is in high demand right now and I feel lucky to have got it, so I guess I'll just try to be more careful in the future. CZ Shadow 2. :)

When I lived in KY I nt to Buds gun shop often. Awesome range and great people there.
They have great prices, but I have heard several bad things about their auctions.
I agree on price and the ease of the purchase. I think they have so much business that they didn't want to be bothered fixing my screw up.

This gets better. I got an email today saying that the gun was going to my FFL of choice and another email to call them. I called and was told that the gun was no longer available. Funny they had 10 when I ordered and paid immediately with a CC. I have purchase confirmation and a email stating the order was in the shipping dept. I told them to refund my money and Bud can kiss my arse.

That sucks, I too would have a sour taste if they did that to me.

Ordered from them three times. Luckily it has always been decent for me. Sorry to hear about your experience. I had PSA try something similar but they made good on it.

I haven't had any issues with Buds. Sorry to hear about your issues. The Shadow 2 appears to be hard to get right now. On another note, I just got a shipping notification from them this morning of my suppressor ready SA XD that I had on layaway. Will be at my LGS on friday.

I've used Buds many times and never had a problem.

It could be the design of their computer system and something called "Ability to Promise" (ATP) in supply-chain lingo. For example, customer rep 1 cancels your Order since you specified the wrong FFL. The gun goes back into available inventory, someone online just happens to see it is available and orders it, and *poof* it is removed from available inventory before customer rep 1 has a chance to create the new Order.

Also, note that Buds has a Wish List function for registered users and will email people as soon as something on their Wish List comes back into inventory. I've successfully used this to get a popular item in the past - I was creating an Order for the gun within 15min of getting the email from Buds.

Net: I don't think Buds was out to screw you. It is likely a combination of how their supply chain works and sheer demand for the gun. You said it's a popular gun in short supply so I'm not surprised if it quickly got sold.
