Buds Guns Sevierville

Recommended Posts

Didn't really know where I should put this, so just stuck it here.

Went in Buds Tues, on the way to Pigeon Forge. Lot of empty space. Seems to have several guns, but gear was sorely lacking. Lots of Kiosk like displays, but sparsely stocked. Not what I last saw last year. Sign of the times, I guess.

Interesting, a friend has been wanting me to join her on a trip down to Buds to buy a new 9mm. I told her there was a shortage of guns and ammo and it might not be a good time and she need to check on inventory before we drive down.

They had guns, I didn't look that close, because I wasn't looking for one. I'd give them a call before I traveled very far.

I’ve been looking for a couple of guns lately and it’s the same all over it seems.

I have noticed in more gun stores the accessories are slim, I thought it was by design; trying to stock higher demand items and reduce stale inventory.

With 5,000,000 new non-private gun sales, you got to figure all the stuff folks bought.

Plus the rank and file with money in their pocket, in lieu of guns and ammo, they're likely buying parts and pieces to upgrade / personalize their current firearms.

I'm to the point there is nothing much more I need or want to buy other than replenishing ammo.

Good to go on mags, holsters, storage bags, etc. It happens after 30 years of firearm ownership and the the last ten focusing on guns and gear that works for me.

Probably not the best time to be buying a 9mm. They can’t keep the ammunition on the shelves. Right now a .40S&W might be a better choice. While not an abundant amount, I’m seeing more of that, than 9mm. 

I’ve never been impressed with Bud’s accessory inventory in Sevierville. They do have a fine selection of firearms though!

Smoky Mountain Knife Works, next to Bud's, has a firearms department as well.

I was perusing on ammoseek. The top 20 calibers searched are listed.

#1=9mm at 29.99%

#2 =.223 at 11.55%

#8=.40s&w at 2.80%

Interesting. I've seen more 40 S&W on the shelves than most other opoular calibers.  I would have thought it was .380ACP.

That's a shame, I hate shooting my (one and only)

The .380 consumers have to be all these new owners of self defense marketed pistols and buying multiple boxes to never be shot.
