Bud's service is simply fantastic! I ordered on Monday and Thursday it was in their Lexington store ready for pickup. They emailed me with every update from when I placed the order, to when it shipped (no tracking information), an when it arrived. I picked it up Saturday and had it at the range the next day. The gun is quite a bit lighter then it looks but recoil isn't too much if you're halfway used to it. Using a normal .410 shell I had quite a bit of spread at roughly ten feet which was to be expected. The .45 Colt rounds are quite accurate when shot through this, I was destroying Coke cans at 25 yards pretty easily. The one minor issue I noted was after shooting (Remington BB) shells for awhile the cylinder wouldn't cycle very well, I'm guessing some gunk and powder just built up behind it. I wiped it off with my t shirt and it was good again for awhile. I had no such issues firing bullets.
The grip absorbs recoil quite well, I was able to fire the .410 shells one handed but didn't feel like doing it with the far more expensive .45 Colt rounds. The red riber optic sight makes aiming a breeze and being a revolver clean up was easy. I highly recommend this weapons for personal defense or just fun shooting. For defense use the shells with the plates that were designed for this gun. My mom made a milk jug half full of water vanish with one.
This was my third gun from Buds an my first one I ordered online, the other two I just walked into their store an bought. The price is decent, the gun fits in my glove compartment without issue, and even unloaded it can scare the most hardened thug away.
