    Maybe they're just getting high internet traffic that their servers can't handle?

    It loaded for me. Was a little slow, but I kinda expected that, given your post.

    Right. No scam, just website overload. Don't be so paranoid.

    OK. Still overload most likely. You get several thousand guys like you that try to log on at exactly 0800 and it will crash.

    I have heard nothing but good things about Bud's on here and from individuals who ordered things from them.

    Heck, my credit union goes down at times online.

    How exactly this would be a "scam" or benefit Bud's in any way is beyond my comprehension.

    "Hey, let's lure a bunch of folks to our web sit for a Black Friday Sale........and then........shut down the site!!!! That'll be SO great!!! Our business will skyrocket!!!"

    Yeah. Probably not planned or intentional.

    Ease up, Buttercup.

    You were on it and it suddenly went blank? Or did you click on something in there and it refused to load?

    As Zee says, how would this benefit Bud's?

    No, CPJ is "Sunshine".

    Consequently, he calls ME "Buttercup".

    I've bought from Bud's with complete satisfaction, and I would not hesitate to buy there again. Merry Christmas.

    It's interesting how paranoia infects this and other boards. ONE THING goes askew and immediately it's a conspiracy. I see this a lot on gun boards, maybe especially on gun boards but not exclusively, or did when I visited gun boards other than this one. Therefore a computer glitch turns into a scam.

    Regardless of the inplausibility of Bud's closing down traffic on the busiest day of the year, some will assume the worst without any rhyme or reason behind it.

    This post is definitely part of the conspiracy to hide all the conspiracies happening on gun forums.

    "Best Buy's website suffers Black Friday outage.

    Best Buy's website came back online Friday morning, after an extended outage during one of the busiest shopping days of the year, only to go down again Friday night.

    The company attributed the first outage to heavy traffic "

    Well I hope they all have a healthy Mea Kulpa and a big manageable sale to make up for it.

    Buds was part of the conspiracy, to shut down black friday sales in solidarity with protesters around the nation protesting things that need protesting because no one has been protesting enough!

    I am filing a protest to this post immediately. I will be sure to start a social media campaign and have a link to a map showing all stores that stock Nikes and big screen TVs. The post was racist and we should rename Black Friday to Michael Brown Friday to honor his legacy.

    Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson and Winfrey approve this message.

    Look at what you wrote...

    1. You alleged a scam
    2. You cited the scam as a non-functional website

    Ok...how is Buds scamming (implying some sort of fraudulent profiting) if the mechanism by which they sell merchandise for revenue is not functional?

    Less ignorance, please. We need less false accusations in this world.
