Ordered a Beretta A300 Outlander Sunday night about 9PM. FFL calls around 2 today and says I can come and pick it up. A day and a half to get it to me is pretty impressive.

Darrik and his crew at Whittaker's are extremely good people.

I've used Buds several times, and I like them... but it's always been at least a week before they get my gun shipped out.

this is my experience. And my ffl isn't great about calling me. But I'm generally in there a couple times a week and they're transfer is cheap.

Same here on Buds which still isn’t bad. Ordered a Benelli SBE2 about two years ago from Whitaker’s and had similar experience as the OP did. I was about to go out of town on a duck hunt and they came through. Of course I left it behind the seat of the truck when getting in another guy’s truck and didn’t get to hunt with it but that’s another story. :bash:

If you want to be impressed go and see Whittakers it is a place where you can pick up a gun and fondle it.

Same here. Buds has great prices but they tack on CC fees so I often pay by check. I usually have the check in the mail the same day the order is placed and on average the dealer will have the gun 14-18 days later.

Whittakers has the best Tikka prices I've seen. Top notch service from them with very fast shipping.

Man that sucks. I've never bought a gun where it didn't go out within 24-48hrs of the other placed at Buds

What used to be Uncle Lee's in Greenville, Ky is now Bud's also. They advertise 5000 guns in stock, and all but handguns are out in the open.

Didn't know that about Uncle Lees! Been there a few time too.

You would be dis-appointed with Uncle Lee’s after going to Whitaker’s.
I’m sitting in Whitaker’s parking lot now waiting for them to open.

Store is about 1/2 size now, they got rid of all the hardware junk and stuff. It is about a 20 minute drive for me where Whitaker's is a hour and a half.

I think Bud`s drop ships some stuff from warehouses in various places and shipping can be faster or slower depending on if they have it on hand or have it shipped from somewhere else,,

Buds has been the slowest I've dealt with, and have yet to deal with Whittakers, however I've used several of the big boys via slickguns and had amazing luck.. I actually ordered a SBEII from Cabelas during the big sale start, and had it the next day with a $5 shipping charge...which I was really happy with. I did have to get the SKU number and have a store run a locater for me to find the gun but once I did the Lady over the gun department in a Georgia store was one of the nicest folks I've ever dealt with by phone for a purchase. She called me back to confirm same day shipment. I gave Cabelas an AAA+++ on this deal!
