This is the third firearm I have ordered from Bud's. I placed the order on a Wednesday night (after business hours) using one of their preferred FFL dealers as the shipping point and I was filling out the transfer papers at the dealers shop the following Monday. All three purchases have been that fast.

I have previously owned a Colt Defender and a Colt Night defender and they were both excellent pistols but got traded somewhere down the line. So I was eager to have another and jumped on it when one became available again.
I am basically a Kimber guy and really love their pistols and own several, they are tight, accurate and sometimes tempermental. On the other hand the several Colts that I have owned rattle when you shake them, sometimes are not finished well and may seem dated. But more importantly they have always been reliable, shot every time I pulled the trigger and have always been accurate. I have never doubted that a Colt would not come through for me if I ever needed it to. This Defender is no different. I have only had it two days but have put 300 mixed rounds through it with absolutely no problems. For me the 3" 1911's are the perfect carry pistols and are very accurate to 25 yards and further with practice. This Defender has a great finish, looks good and feels good in my hand and loaded is light enough for all day carry. Even with it's light weight, recovery shots are just as quick as with my Kimber Super Carry Ultra HD which is much heavier with its steel frame.
All said if you are looking for a reliable 3" 1911, you really can't go wrong with the Colt Defender and it's proven history.
As for Bud's, I am right up there around 40 guns from them since 2010 with out any real problems and great prices. These days with choices in short supply I really like Bud's Layaway. If I see a gun show up on the website that I have wanted but may have already spent my gun allowance, I can put it on layaway with a small deposit and pay it off when I can afford it.

The best pistol purchase I have made, awesome weapon (it is a Colt afterall), flawless function and reliability yes only 7 rounds but if you can't take care of business with 7 45ACP you won't with any weapon. The Colt Defender sits proudly next to my Commander and 1911 Govt model....you can't beat a Colt IMHO. Of course Bud's service was awesome as usual.

Ordered on Thursday and arrived on Friday. Fast shipping!!!!! I bought the last Colt Defender they had at that time and now says I paid $908 but was $958 with added $28.74 for not using cash and $10 insurance. I also had to buy a VIP membership to order the gun which was $24.95....Grand total of $1021.69. I wanted this gun bad and didn't mind paying but everyone shold know the real deal. The gun shoots great and no jams yet. Great piece from Colt!

Wow. All I can say is wow. If you have the bucks , get it. If you don't, save them up and then get it. I've had 3 different brand new Paras that could not even compare to the out of the box reliability and performance of this pistol. And a lifetime warranty to boot! Sure, it costs more. But its worth more.
