  • Wasn't impressed, since I've been to the main store in Lexington. Not much merchandise. It's just there for show. 
  • I have had mixed experiences here. The gun counter customer service seems to be a little on the snobby side. The gun selection is pretty good but the prices aren't always the best. Shop around. Many times you can find better deals locally on standard firearms like Glock, S&W etc. That said, sometimes the $20 to $40 dollar difference isn't worth the extra drive etc. The gun range staff are very friendly and I had a great time shooting there.
  • Was looking forward to going to buds. I'm easy to please and enjoy checking out new gun shops. Well....Could have been a better experience. Not impressed. Not very helpful. Lazy. Be buying else where. You should too. Won't be back. Went to Acadamy Sports exact same gun $30 cheaper. In and out in 20 min. Plus on top of it buds (big store) right. really didn't have much to pick from. Wasn't impressed even with the ammo selection.
  • We love going to Bud's! We have made several purchases here and have gotten better than market prices every time. I love that almost anything you want to purchase is available at the range so you can "try before you buy.". Most recently we were looking for something for my wife. The sales people were quick to offer the opinions and experiences regarding the different items we were considering. We ended going with their suggestion and went to the range for her to try it out before we took it home. It was perfect for her, and we took it home. Thanks to the staff at Bud's for always being available and so helpful!
  • I have never been to a gun store with as many guns as Buds. The place is wall to wall full of guns of every kind. The handgun selection goes on forever. The staff at this store are all gun people and they clearly know what they are doing. If you have questions you'll get good answers. And finally the firing range! It's a state of the art range and very safe plus if you are new they have great people working who can give you tips and pointers. Buds is great and I gladly give them five stars.
  • I purchased a new LR308 from Bud's Gun Shop on Saturday. When I spoke to their associate he said the floor model was the last gun left but it was new. I agreed to accept this gun. He did not advise me to check the gun over for damage nor did he check the gun for damage. He packaged the gun back in it's original box and I paid and left happy with my new purchase. When I got home I unwrapped the gun and found damage to the upper end of the barrel. The coating was worn off in about a 1 inch area and bare metal was showing. This is the same area that would have impacted their display rack. I immediately called back to the store and spoke to two managers. Both advised me all sales are final and they would not be willing to repair the damage. One even told me I could just spray paint the damage. Obviously, this was unacceptable. I asked to speak with the store manager and was advised he was not in. I asked for him to call me when he returned. I also emailed him asking him to resolve my issues. Four days have passed and he still has not responded. I will take my business somewhere else in the future. Buyer beware. Very poor customer service here.
