    Probably just impatient, but I ordered my XDMc 9mm on the 6th and it says that it is in stock, but my order has been on "Processing" since the 6th. Also when I go to their website they have a banner across the top that states the following:

    !!!! IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!!

    An EXTREME increase in TRAFFIC to our website actually caused the site to shut down multiple times last week. Even when the site goes down, we are able to process and ship existing orders normally.

    We appreciate your patience as we continue to do our very best to handle the EXTRAORDINARY volume at this time !

    Just getting anxious to go shoot my new gun :)

    It should be coming out of "Processing" pretty soon and then I believe it goes into the "Shipping" mode then "Shipped". The money I save when purchasing a new firearm from them is worth the wait but I know what you mean.

    cheaperthandirt.com usually has better prices and they don't pull any of that cash discount crap like buds. The only thing that gave buds an edge is an easy to use website and fast shipping, and since they no longer have the latter I'd say take your money somewhere else.

    I fail to see any benefit from buying guns off of Buds, Jetguns, or Cheaper Than Dirt. Their prices are not low enough to justify it for me. If I buy a Walther PPQ, for example off of Jetguns for $511, it will cost me a lot more than that once everything is done:

    $511 - Walther PPQ
    $??? - Shipping cost?
    $40 - FFL Fee
    $??? - WA State Use Tax

    Total will be greater than just ordering it from one of the local gun stores. The online price would have to be at minimum $100 less than what I can find locally to make it somewhat worthwhile.

    I think these guys have one of the biggest and best well-rounded selections but it isn't too often that they are the absolute cheapest.

    I ordered a gun last Thursday, I got an email today with a tracking number, saying that it was shipped today (monday).

    That said, I do not have as high opinion of buds as I have in the past.

    They didn't used to have very competitive prices, but around christmas they seemed to wise up and their prices have become VERY good, especially on the XD's. You may want to check them again. It depends on the model but I got my XD sc from them earlier this month for 428 shipped. Thats cheaper than buds even with the cash discount.

    They wanted somewhere between 480-550 for an XD at my LGS. I got mine for less than $430 shipped, and the local pawn shop does $10 transfers. I don't know what that state use tax you mention is, but I pay zero tax on all online orders since no one is dumb enough to set up shop in New Mexico. Buds prices includes shipping, and cheaperthandirt ships all handguns for 11 dollars.
