Top notch service, and another excellent transaction from Bud's. I wholeheartedly recommend becoming a Team Buds Member. I ordered my gun on 3/18 at 10:00 pm EST, and picked it up at my FFL dealer this morning 3/20 at 11:00 am EST. The Next Day Shipping on Fast Track items for Team Buds members alone is well worth the yearly price of membership.
I am very happy with my purchase of the Cobra Firearms .38 Special Big Bore Derringer. It's a good looking, solid piece of work that feels good in my hand. The fit, and finish are excellent, and the picture doesn't do it justice.
The hammer, and trigger action were a bit stiff, but crisp. This is partially due to being for safety considerations, and partly due to being new out of the box. After an afternoon of handling the gun, the actions have limbered up quite nicely. As per the instruction manual, I would not dry fire this weapon. I always use snap caps for all my dry firing practice sessions.
Unfortunately, I haven't had time to get to the gun range yet to get some actual impressions of the gun's live firing capabilities. Suffice to say though that this gun is not meant as a long range target pistol, so I would not expect such results from it. Hopefully, I can add more information after having some range time with it.
This was another great buying experience all around, and I look forward to doing business with Buds, and Cobra Firearms again real soon!
