    Firstly, sorry if this is in the wrong section... wasn't quite sure where it should go.

    I'm getting a little impatient waiting for the local shops to get a XDsc 9mm in stock and I'm thinking of ordering from Bud's. How long does it usually take for them to ship? I'm one state over, about 4 hours away, so I'm figuring the actual shipment shouldn't take more than a couple days. I was just wondering how long it actually takes them to "put it in the mail". I know alot of people from here have ordered from there so figured I could get a well-educated answer.

    Thanks in advance!

    My experience is if you order it before UPS runs (I think 2:00 p.m.) they send it out the day you order it. You should get it the next day. I would order by 11:00 a.m. just to make sure.

    It all depends on if your FFL is on file or not. My experience has always been within 2 days when all the paperwork is in place.

    My experience also - waiting on a gun from them now - would not hesitate to purchase from them again.

    That only applies when shipping through UPS/Fedex for individuals.

    Like others have said already, they ship pretty quick. It usually takes 3-4 days after payment to receive them here in SC but it's worth the wait because their prices are typically better than the local shops.

    Wow, good deal. The FFL is on file there so it could be here by end of the week. Woopee!

    Thanks for the replies!

    I got my gun in 3 days and I live in Alaska. Great service online or on the phone. I'm thinking of purchasing another one from them.

    If it says "not viewable in retail", then it might take longer since they're at the distributor. I usually order guns from them when they're "not viewable in retail" because I know that they come from the warehouse and peoples grubby hands haven't been all over them! :-D

    I bought mine this month from them. Its a 40sc. They said they had so many orders for it that they had to get it from the warehouse which too longer than I expected. It took a week. They upgraded my shipping to next day air free of charge. If its in stock then two days.

    I called Wednesday afternoon but didn't get my creds faxed to them for military discount until Thursday morning and both my pistol and rifle arrived today. Excellent service, I was having issue with logging in so I sent them an email and I placed the order right over the phone and they were great to deal with... very personable and very courteous.... needless to say I'm soooo excited tonight.... everything arrived just as it should and they FFL guys here only charged me 20bucks total to do the paperwork for both... thought that was pretty decent of them... i like to support local businesses but they couldn't come close and didn't have the items i wanted!! I'll prolly buy my AR furniture from them.... then the shop here tossed in some mags as well (even if they are older metal) and it came with one MAGPUL.

    FFL holders can and often use the USPS. Priority Mail is the choice since it's quick, secure and cheap.
