Tips To Make Online Gun Buying Even Easier

We’ve all had that struggle of going into a gun store and not finding what we want.  Or if we do, the price they’re asking is way more than we’re willing to pay.

So if you’re like me, the first thing you’ll do is go home and try and find it on Amazon.  You’ll quickly realize all you’re looking at is pellet guns…. Dang.

Well, the good news is that Buds Gun Shop has figured this out.  They’ve even made gun buying easy when you’re dealing with all of the  federal regulations you’re expected to follow.

They have a quick outline of what steps you need to take to have your gun delivered close by where you can grab it.

The full list is below:

There are only three simple steps

Find the gun you want You pay us directly for the firearm. (Click HERE for payment options)
Choose your FFL dealer (Federal Firearms License): We cannot ship a gun direct to you, we do ship to the local FFL dealer of your choice. Any legitimate gun store or gun dealer has an FFL license; pawn shops and collectors may also have them.
Pick up your gun: Inspect your gun before accepting the transfer. If you are not happy for any reason leave the gun at the dealer. We will have it picked up for free and offer you an exchange or refund at no cost.

Here is how to arrange a shipment and transfer:

Find a licensed FFL dealer in your area. (Click HERE for FFL dealers aready on file)
Contact the dealer and let them know you would like to receive a firearm for transfer from
Be sure to ask about their FFL transfer fee, commonly around $25 but varies by state.
If you agree to their fee, arrange the transfer with your FFL dealer. (We do not arrange the transfer)
Provide your dealer with our mailing address or toll free fax number where they can send a copy of their FFL.(if not already on file)
Once you have selected an FFL for your transfer, please indicate the dealers name (name on the FFL) on your order so we know where to ship your firearm.
To Speed Up Your Order:

If choosing an FFL dealer not already on file, please type the dealers name in the COMMENTS section of your order.
Please include your ORDER NUMBER on any correspondence you or your FFL may send us.
It is best to locate a FFL dealer to transfer your gun before you place your order. However, you can place your order first and then provide us with your FFL dealer info before we ship. We will hold your order for about 7 business days to give you time to locate a dealer and arrange a transfer.

If you encounter any problems or special circumstances, please call 859-368-0371 or email us via this form: CONTACT US. We will be happy to address your concerns.


Once the firearm is ready to be picked up at your FFL, Please INSPECT THE FIREARM THOROUGHLY to make sure it is exactly what you ordered and that there are no defects with the firearm. If there are any problems whatsoever, DO NOT ACCEPT THE TRANSFER !! We will gladly have the firearm picked up and returned to us at our expense and provide you with your choice of a replacement or full refund.

Once you accept transfer, the gun is considered used and must be returned directly to the manufacturer for warranty repair or replacement. Any returns to AFTER accepting transfer from your dealer will be subject to a 10% restock fee, no exceptions.

So there you have it. In three easy steps, you can be the owner of a new gun. It does seem there is a precursory step to this, and that is finding an FFL dealer you trust.

Shipping to a pawn shop… maybe not your best bet. Seedy people knowing you have a gun is a great way to alert people that you have money (Then again, they know you have a gun, so that’s kinda on them if they try to rob you).

Shipping to a reputable range or a store like Bass Pro Shop or Cabela’s will probably be a much smarter option, but don’t expect to go into any of these stores and just pick up your gun. You’ll get sucked into all the other fancy things you need for your gun.

Next thing you’ll have to sell the gun you just bought to pay your credit card bill for some of those after-market goodies.

The point is: Be smart and ship your gun somewhere you can get in and out of quickly.
