Springfield XDM95259BHC XD(M) Competition 19+1 9mm 5.25\" Fiber Optic
by John L Date Added: Thursday 22 March, 2012
This was my first on-line purchase and first interactions with Bud's Gun Shop. I am extremely pleased with the service, the speed, and accuracy. I ordered on a Wednesday night and picked up at my local FFL on Saturday at noon. I wanted to buy from my local gun shop but even when I told them the price I was paying (including the 3% credit card mark-up, the $7 insurance, and the $25 transfer fee) my local shop was still $100 higher for exactly the same package. I told them if they could get to within $50 of the price I would buy from them. They would not. Oh well - I gave them a chance, their loss.
Regarding the gun - only good things to say. After receiving my son, daughter and I went to the local range and shot 500 rounds. We had a variety of ammo just to ensure everything would work before buying bulk on-line. The only ammo that caused difficulty (failure to feed, failure to eject) was the cheap Russian WPA junk. Upon close inspection, the box of 50 we purchased was noticeably shorter than the other brands (Federal, Remington, Winchester, Blazer). The WPAs would not even stay firmly seated in the magazine. The adjustable sight is great. It was shooting quite a bit low out of the box but we quickly dialed that in. The speed loader is a life saver. Without that our fingers would have been blistered quickly. Yes the magazines will hold 19 rounds but on 17-19 it is very difficult to compress the magazine spring. Would I recommend the gun? Absolutely. Would I recommend Bud's Gun Shop? Absolutely. This is probably the start of a long and happy relationship.
