Are you talking about Past & Blast? That's a cool little store,I've been there several times.
Yes sir, best little gun store that I know of. In fact, not so little now that they moved across the street to the building that used to be the bank.

At one point in the planning process I almost called this store Past and Blast or Blast from the Past

I wanted a combined comic book shop,game store, movie store, memorabilia emporium and historical gun shop.

I got vetoed, and when I think of how weird the customer base would have been (as well as how shady some MTG players are) I had to agree.

It is my honest belief that too many voters are absolutely IGNORANT as to their rights...until they are confronted with events such as we all are dealing with now...

A friend of mine owns a lgs. He says the same thing- lots of first timers getting surprised about the background checks and delays.

He even had one guy tell him he was a liar. He’ll just get one off the internet.
HA!

Cant tell you how many times Ive seen some idiot who got arrested screaming about all their rights that they think just got violated by the police and how they are going to win their court case and sue everyone bla bla bla (because most people dont know anything about their 1st, 4th, or 5th amendment rights (let alone their 2nd) other than what's portrayed on TV.

It happens so often it's not even amusing... its just expected.

Ive asked a lot of lawyers too about how often they get clients that come in already thinking they are going to get acquitted because they think their rights were all blatantly violated etc...

They always roll their eyes... "alot... and then they don't want to hear it and they don't believe us when we tell them that you guys (the cops) didn't do anything wrong and they are better off just taking a plea deal because there isn't much to argue in their defense... their client did it, the lawyers know they did it, and its 90% of the time just mitigation work at that point.

dang. I have a pistol I was thinking of selling. maybe I should go to my LGS and put it on consignment. it might sell quick.
Blaster they cant keep any pistols in stock at the shops here. They sell as fast as they get them in from UPS and Fedex. Not only pistols but any shotgun that the shops get in is gone by that night. Its crazy. Of course you have the waiting period on the pistols but they are being claimed till being approved. The shops here have no 9mm or 45 ammo.

Just heard from our UPS driver that there is a 5 day lag in CBI checks to obtain a firearm. 5000 person backlog and ammo near non existent. The anti gunners and snowflakes are getting scared now. UPS driver brought me a few items of ammo I was short on. My wife left him a bag of treats and a thank you card for the effort he is putting in and the longer hours he's working. These guys are front liners too. Let's thank them and show appreciation, even in a small way or a thank you.
On another note, our nurses at Denver General are limited to 1 mask a day. Who would of been our future daughter in law, till our son was killed in an avalanche, is working there and says her and her now husband, strip their clothes off at the door, go into the basement and shower and then go upstairs to their son and her mother. If they don't get masks soon they will be using the only one they have and having to sterilize between shifts. Don't believe all the hype that masks are going out. Maybe NYC, but not here yet. Sorry I got off script Brothers.

Davidsons Gun Gallery has suspended all online sales and says to use their website to find a local dealer. Big wholesaler. Natchez shooting supply was out of most standard ammo like 45 acp and 38 super. CDNN went completely out of the ammo business this week. I did get a few boxes of Golden Sabre in 380 and 45 acp. Also got several boxes of 17 HMR at $10 a box. Glad I reload, going to be another long dry spell.

A friend of mine has bought 16 boxes of 9mm reloads from me in the last 3 days. He runs a pawn shop and cannot seem to find 9mm ammo. We had a long discussion about liability, and how I can not be responsible for someone having a cheap Saturday night special, or a poorly maintained gun. He trusts me and my ammo, and hasn't fired store bought ammo for years.

that could get some embarrassing.

this is one of those deals where being prepared versus not being prepared is sure telling.

I am not sure of your background, but I am assuming if you are selling reloads that you have and FFL either a gun dealer or ammo manufacturers license? It is a federal requirement.https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/person-who-reloads-ammunition-required-be-licensed-manufacturer.

As an attorney I am going to say you are an easy target for a lawsuit by anyone who ends up with your ammo, has a kaboom and gets hurt. In fact, you are an easier target if someone gets killed, because then the little widow and kids could come after you legally and here are some considerations and why very few people do commercial reloading on the side.

First, the federal statute applies, if, you manufacture ammo for a profit. I spent 6 years as a prosecutor and most prosecutors would never consider filing charges on some guy who sells a few boxes of ammo to his buddies, unless something happens. If there were an accident and local police brought it to the attention of the prosecutor or say your ex-wife or neighbor who hates you got mad and called ATF that is another story. Cases have priorities. But if there is a complaint, then there must be a file and that file must be acted upon.

So, let's say your buddy takes his nephew shooting on a Saturday. At the end of the hunt he lets the nephew who we will say is 21 take some ammo home. Next Saturday nephew takes another friend out shooting and something happens, gun blows up and the new kid loses an eye. Now we have parents of the blind kid wanting to know what the hell happened. When they went to the emergency room they told the truth, otherwise the cops are looking at the nephew or anyone else present, as being negligent or criminal, both are crimes. So they tell the cops that the gun just blew up.

Well for about 100 years we have had product liability laws in this country. Since 1968, there have not been any Saturday night specials imported into the US. So parents of the blind kid are looking to sue under the nephews home owner liability insurance and they come see me, the hungry lawyer wanting to make some money to buy more guns. I know that either the gun or the ammo is the cause of the problem. If it was on a public range, there are probably witnesses. The lawyer files a motion and demands the gun be examined by an expert. An expert will look at the gun and see that the cylinder or top strap or slide or whatever came apart and the gun manufacturer will be contacted and they will claim the ammo was faulty, they always do. An overload is pretty easy to prove, you just put the expert up to say the gun appears to be within specs as to the steel and design and all that, so it was the ammo.

Next, they (I) will take your deposition and you will automatically like me because when you come to my office you will see my Boone and Crocket deer or the one that is 11.3 years old and you will want to know the story. Then it is my turn and it goes like this:

1. You were subpoenaed to bring a copy of your FFL Type 6 license, may I see it?
2. You were instructed to bring copies of your state and city permits to manufacture and store ammunition in your home, may I see them?
3. You were instructed to bring copies of your Schedule C, of your federal tax return, showing your income and expenses for your part-time ammunition manufacturing business, may I see them?

4. You were instructed to bring your records for the recipes for reloading all calibers that you sell in your business, may I see them please?

5. You were instructed to bring all records showing the components you bought that went into the ammunition that caused the gun to blow up, may I see them please?

6. You were instructed to bring your records showing how you proof tested the lots of ammunition that permanently blinded this young man and destroyed his dream to become n astronaut, may I see them please?

7. I am going to stop about here, but, just one more, you were operating an illegal ammunition manufacturing ammunition company for which you did not have any federal or state permits, you violated, the state and federal tax laws by not filing income tax returns, you have no records showing that you proof tested these loads, and you have no explanation as to how your loads blew up a perfectly safe handgun, is that correct? Oh and does your homeowners insurance approve of your having hazardous commercial powders, primers and, manufacturing ammunition in your home? No, well OK. I only have about 42 other questions and then we will break for lunch.

I did this stuff since 1981 having graduated from night law school while a military officer long ago. These are EZ cases for lawyers when there is an injured person. When you sell anything that is dangerous you have a special duty to make sure it is safe. And when push comes to shove, you need insurance or the attorney fees will eat you alive.

I know people who have manufacture hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammo commercially on a part time basis, then just quit. It is simply not worth it unless you sell huge amounts and can afford insurance. Your comment was how can you be liable if some guy puts your ammo into some Saturday night special, Ez answer, because the law presumes you as a manufacturer to be in a superior position and only sell ammo that is well within established specs. That is why Colt 45 ammo is 44 special is so weak. Any manufacturer must sell them so they do not blow up the normal gun on the market. Yes you can sell loads like Buffalo Bore. But go to their website and look at all the warnings they put on every caliber. You will need to do exactly the same, it is called the duty to warn. And of course you want to put I boldly on every box of ammo you sell.

Last issue. Are you responsible for what happens if somebody other than the guy you sell it to uses it and it blows up a gun? Sure, you sold it for every 9mm. Perhaps if you had a special contract with that one guy that only he would use it and never sell it or give it away, maybe. lots of other issues, what are your other questions. Just not worth the risk to me.

on the other hand it's perfectly legal to barter, trade, or give away any amount of ammo without a license or responsibility.

it's when you sell the stuff 'for profit' that you become subject to those laws.
as well as the ITAR 10% taxes.

We apologize for yet another email in your inbox regarding Coronavirus issues affecting business operations. We will just assume you are already aware of the extreme impact this pandemic has had on firearm and ammunition sales. Things like product shortages, price increases, shipping delays, etc. At a time when many are focused on the negative, and assuming the worst, we wanted to share some more positive and hopefully calming facts with you about our business.

1) If you have placed an order and received a confirmation number we do have your order. Although shipping will likely be delayed substantially beyond our standard terms, the website is automatically securing your item(s) as they are ordered. It is completely impossible for our Customer Service staff to communicate with all +3.2 million customers, of which +225,000 are visiting the site each day now. Our staff is currently only reaching out to customers with existing orders, and only then when there is an actual issue with their order. So... not hearing from us is actually a good thing. Repeated attempts by hundreds of thousands of people to check the status of their order is not going to help expedite anyone's order. It only makes it more difficult for us to assist those relative handful of customers who actually require human assistance to resolve an issue with their existing order.

2) We still have thousands of guns and millions of rounds of ammo. Although it was never our plan to sell them all in a matter of weeks! We are one of the only remaining online retailers that actually has our own +100,000 square foot warehouse full of guns and ammo. Don't believe it...? Just check out this funny Hickok45 video on Youtube posted back in 2016 that actually shows the inside of our warehouse. You will see Hickok45 walk into our warehouse around the 2:30 mark of this video. Many of our competitors have no inventory and rely solely on their suppliers to inventory and ship their orders for them... so you will see their inventories being depleted much more rapidly as well as prices skyrocketing as their suppliers are raising their prices daily, if not hourly. We also use suppliers to supplement our own inventory so we are subject to some price increases ourselves, but not to the extent as those who rely solely on their suppliers.

3) Our only shortage is people and hours in a day... not guns and ammo. We admittedly were unprepared for how a pandemic would affect our business... just like millions of other businesses were. Our major issue is simply not having enough people, and not enough hours in a day, to process and ship all of the orders our website is capable of accepting. The Budsgunshop.com website runs wide open, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, our staff only runs wide open about 12-16 hours per day before they start complaining about things like needing to eat, sleep, or seeing their kids... who are all at home from school now. We were actually dealing with the exact same issue (on a much different scale) way back in 2013. Check out this Youtube video at the 8:10 mark and you will hear a very similar story.

4) We are not alone this time; we brought +3 million friends with us! After living through those difficult learning experiences in years past, we knew we had to do something very different in order to make our Customer Service resources scalable on very short notice. Out of those experiences the Buds Community was born back in 2015. Collaborating with our +3 million customers with a vast knowledge of firearms, ammunition, and accessories to create a Q&A forum that is capable of quickly answering customer questions at a rate of 2x, 3x, or even 10x the rate of the day before. This short 8 minute Youtube video posted back in 2017 explains why the solution was created (for times like these) and how it works.

5) We have a history of facing and winning these types of challenges. After 50 years in the business, we have been faced with similar difficulties in the past and always came out stronger than when we went in. More recently, back in 2009, we saw similar increases in volume as a result of both the political dynamics at the time and the H1N1 pandemic. It is navigating through those types of experiences, and the subsequent changes that we made, that allow us to continue to operate today under extreme conditions. We were admittedly not prepared well enough to handle this latest challenge without experiencing some delays and other inconveniences. However, you can rest assured that we have been around long enough, and been through enough, to come out the other side of this challenge, along with you, stronger than when we went in.

We are here for you and in this with you. "Budsgunshop" is not just another company name on internet. We are over 200 individuals with families of our own at home to support and care for. We are going to continue to do the very best we can for you at an extremely difficult time. Unfortunately, our best at this time is likely going to be woefully short of what it was just a few short weeks ago, and definitely not up to your expectations of "Buds." For those of you that have any patience left at all, we would greatly appreciate you sharing that with us... as patience may actually be the only thing in shorter supply than toilet paper at this time.

Bud's has 3.2 million customers? Considering the vast number of people who have never heard of them, that alone would make me think there are a lot more gun owners in America than the government estimate.

Then again, I wonder if they are including HQ, Kennessaw, Bud K and all the other things they do.

I know a local gun store that sells reloads, but there is no way I would do it. Alabama is one of the top three states in terms of (often frivolous) law suits.

I don't carry any ammo that wasn't manufactured (or re-manufactured) by a licensed company.

I am not sure of your background, but I am assuming if you are selling reloads that you have and FFL either a gun dealer or ammo manufacturers license? It is a federal requirement.https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/person-who-reloads-ammunition-required-be-licensed-manufacturer.

HA!

Cant tell you how many times Ive seen some idiot who got arrested screaming about all their rights that they think just got violated by the police and how they are going to win their court case and sue everyone bla bla bla (because most people dont know anything about their 1st, 4th, or 5th amendment rights (let alone their 2nd) other than what's portrayed on TV.
I've told this before, but this story is on point.

My local gun shop is a delight to gun folks. It's a combination of gun shop, museum, and general store for gun stuff. Everyone from cops, to collectors, to first-timers, to James Earl Jones (honest -- he's a collector and buys a lot of exotic caliber ammo from Scotty because the exotic pieces are his thing) shops there. No haggling, because Scotty always prices things fairly and is honest as the day is long.

Anyway, one day I stopped in as I do every so often to pick up some ammo and see if Scotty's gotten in any vintage goodies I might want to buy for the collection. I was looking at a Beretta Brigadier when an arrogant business executive type, one of those who is a legend in his own mind, barged in and jumped the line of people waiting to make purchases. He told Scotty, "I want to buy a pistol."

Scotty didn't turn a hair. "Sure. Let's see your pistol permit."

"My what?" Mr. Legend-In-His-Own-Mind could not grasp the idea that laws applied to him as much as they did to the peons in the gun store who were not masters of the world.

"Your pistol permit. I don't know you, so let's see it."

"I don't have a pistol permit."

"No? Then it's lookee but no touchee for you. If you want to buy a pistol, the first thing you need to do is go to the county courthouse and ask the county clerk for a pistol permit application. Go through the application process, get your pistol permit, and then I will be happy to sell you whatever pistol you'd like. But in the meantime, if you'd like I can sell you a rifle or a shotgun; you don't need a permit for those."

The master of the world type walked out of the gun shop mutter about how unfair it was that all us peasants could own pistols and he couldn't and something needed to be done about that. We waited until the door closed before bursting into hysterical laughter at him. I hope he got the message: The Second Amendment was written for everyone, not just those in positions of power.

I got a call on day of a child injured. When I got there EMS had a kid in back of ambulance probing his hand with scissors asking him if he could feel scissors. His hand was black. This was in mid 80s. When I walked into carport I noticed a large number of defused work cracks on floor. Inside I found a mini 14 propped up against a window in back of house. While there their phone rang and a female asked if I was officer at scene. I told her yes and she told me kids were always shooting out back of house. She wouldn't leave her name with me. I confiscated all fire works in bags, kid telling me his uncle brought them down from Ohio. Ga illegal to shoot of possess fire works. During civil hearing one lawyer (defendant) ask me about fire works and mini 14 in my report. He then asked me the velosity of a mini 14. I told him its around 3200 fps. Teh he asked me what made me an expert on fire arms. Sir, I'm a certified small arms repairman US Army having served in S Viet Nam with 1st Infantry Div.. t that point they closed the hearing down. Lawyer didn't like what behind door #2. Planteif won big time in suite. Ran into victim 35 years later. Down stairs of house was a reloading room with a small out board motor propping door open. Kids had taken an alunimum pipe, filled it with Hercules gun powder, stick a fire cracker fuse in small hole in bottom and lite fuse exploding pipe. Kid lost two fingers.
