This was the first time I ordered a gun on line. I was apprehensive but I went ahead and ordered it anyway. My experience was excellent. Buds was very good at notifying me almost every day I got some sort of notice about when my gun was going to be shipped and then when the gun was delivered to the FFL, only 3 miles from my home. I used an FFL on Buds list and I would highly recommend them. The name of the FFL was "Best Pawn Shop" in Richmond, Indiana. I ordered a Smith and Wesson revolver model 686PLUS. I have shot a little over a box of 38 special ammo and I am impressed how nice the gun shoots and it doesn't have much recoil either. I haven't tried it with 357 magnums yet but it is very accurate. The gun arrived in perfect condition and earlier than they said. I would definitely do this again, if I want another gun. Buds is very good to deal with. Vaughn

Just came back from my FFL with my new 686. Looks great, minimal scratches, very satisfied with the purchase. Shipped within 2 days once my E-check cleared. This gun is a beauty.

Obviously not a concealed carry option (unless you're Dirty Harry), I bought this just for fun. With the six inch barrel, this is a fairly heavy weapon, which serves to dampen the kick back very well. Shooting 38 Special, I was instantly able to knock down soda bottles at 10 yards first time out, and I'm a new shooter. I find the 357 rounds to be a bit much, as I understand so did many law enforcement officers when this round was introduced. But it's still fun to put in the heavier rounds and blast away. This gun rhymes with fun.

First time dealing with Buds and am happy with the transaction. Had no issues with the process. The order was at my FFL in exactly one week to the day which is not super fast but is acceptable. I purchased the S&W 686 plus. It was received in the usual condition for S&W and the condition I see in all reviews. Smith and Wesson ships their weapons very dirty and with some scratches. Would have been a little upset if I had not know this as \"normal\" beforehand. Finally got out to the range yesterday and I love the gun. It shots very accurate and is very easy to shoot with the .38 special round. As expected there is substantially more kick with the 357 but still very manageable. Great weapon. No regrets on this one. Won\'t be shooting it too often with the high price and limited selection of 357 and .38 special rounds, but will enjoy on the occasions when in the mood for a good old fashion revolver.

This is simply an excellent gun! Entire family loves it. Accurate, smooth (both single and double action) and consistent. From novice to expert, you will want to have this in your collection. Very little recoil with .38, and manageable with .357 ammo.

Great revolver and fun to shoot. Stainless Steel looks great, the 7 rounds in the cylinder is worth it.
