Awesome powerful handgun! 357 mag is sweet! shooting 38sp is a great way to shoot and save $. Very accurate, took it to the range today and shot 50 357 and 50 38 SP and was flawless! I am very happy! Took 5 business days to "clear" check but then was shipped in 2 days!

Outstanding service and product! First time ordering from Buds, and I read a ton of negative reviews AFTER I had placed the order, freaked me out. Placed the order on a Sunday afternoon. Two e-mails within a short time, order processing and order moved to shipping, same day. Arrived at my local FFL dealer Tuesday, picked it up that afternoon! Lightning fast processing and shipping and receipt, especially ordering on a weekend, blew me away. Had not even planned to check the tracking number until later in the week, but just happened to,and shocked that it was already there from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday early in the day. I live in middle TN, so that helped I guess. I don't see how you can get better service than that. And no local dealer could touch the price I paid. For an additional 8 bucks, you can get 100% replacement cost if lost or damaged in shipping. Outstanding! The Smith & Wesson 686 Plus is a work of art. I got the 3" barrel length, mainly as home defense. And a 7-round cylinder is awesome, compared to other makes or models with 5 or 6. Exceptionally well-made revolver. Hammer, trigger, cylinder mechanics are world-class. When you cock the hammer for single action, be ready to go when you put your finger on the trigger, it's a light touch and very short movement. Smooth in double action and rolling the cylinder. This is a heavy hoss of a handgun, not for the weak or frail. Big difference from using polymer frame semi-autos. But the weight helps with recoil on magnum rounds. Shoots standard .38 (very low recoil), the hotter .38 P (little more kick), and of course .357 magnum (the stronger recoil you would expect, but less than what I would have thought). Came with a S&W logo hard shell case. Top-of-the line revolver as far as quality, you can't beat it. Sights were dead-on right out of the box. First time shooting I got a tighter group than with a S&W .22 Compact I have for inexpensive practice / target shooting. The weight just makes it stable as heck when you raise and aim. Amazing gun! Couldn't be happier. Getcha some!

This is my first purchase through Bud's, and I could not be happier with their service. I ordered this on a Tuesday morning, and it arrived at my FFL Thursday of that same week (I am in CT). Very satisfied with this purchase. Love the heft of the L frame, and the machining is great. The only reason I gave this four stars instead of five is because the sights were slightly off out of the box (which, needless to say, is a simple fix).

Ordered on Monday, arrived at my FFL on Wednesday. I can't imagine faster or better service than that. (On top of which I received numerous email confirmations regarding the order and tracking along the way.) As luck would have it it's like a monsoon outside and looks like it will be for the coming week so I can't comment on the performance of my new 3" 686 Plus...however, if it's anything like my own or (previously) issued S&W revolvers and semi-automatics it should prove to be true and dependable. This was my first experience with Buds Gun Shop. I'm certain it won't be my last. (I guess there's a good reason why they've earned a 9.18 rating out of a possible 10 from over 14,000 reviews on resellerratings.com)
