It's official....we received our letter from GE Capital today that our merchant agreement will be terminated effective 2/18/2013. Although they originally told us this would only affect online sales, the letter indicates they are terminating both online and retail merchant business. We still accept credit cards and ACH/Echeck as well as checks by mail....and also offer our 90 day layaway plan....so we do have several other payment options. GE was just our only deferred interest finance option.
ACH/Echeck is the preferred payment option as you can quickly and securely pay online and still receive the lowest advertised cash discount price. Please keep in mind this payment option, like credit cards, is processed by a secure third party and not Budsgunshop.com. We must hold all orders paid via ACH/Echeck for 5 business days before the funding is confirmed and we can release/ship your order. The 5 day hold is really not an issue at this time as we are not shipping most orders within 5 days anyway....more like 2-3 weeks ! We are doing our very best folks....please be patient with us.....this too shall pass. :)
Looks like GE Capital is the next in line.
I’ve said the Obama was out to destroy the industry.
Sounds like http://www.wgal.com/news/politics/Pa-gun-law-proposal-would-make-federal-gun-control-unenforceable/-/9360314/18254036/-/cnsvk8z/-/index.html is going to get complicated.
Be sure and take names. The list is getting pretty long.
The line is not so blurry any more: it is getting more and more well defined.
We must pick a side or one will be picked for us.
Holy crap! If I had Trumps $$$$$, I would open the “Sportsmans Bank of America”. Or the “2nd Amendment Bank of America”. Draw in all the sports related companies and give ‘em good rates. Money maker? Depends on what the clown show in DC attempts to do. But, if I were in their shoes I’d be closing accounts and drawing out $$$$ like no tomorrow.
Bank of America. Never, for any reason. GE Capital. Never, for any reason.
Is this the GE that makes the Minigun?

Doing business with Bud’s is a risk anyway. Buyer beware, they are not the most reputable business.
It’s been going on for years. The big bank CEO’s are anything but capitalists. My parents, who were small business owner, were very concerned when the smaller banks were being ‘merged’ back in the late 80’s. We’re going to have a ‘global bank’, soon.
It’s not a bit surprising that three of the groups that have their knickers in a knot are the banksters, government, finally aided and abetted by the media!
Crony-capitalism has been perfected with the Federal Reserve and the US financial system. Want to REALLY change America and knock the legs out from every Progressive plan for Government? Shut down the Federal Reserve.
I wonder what the link is between GE & GE Capital? Is Jeff Imelt, chairman of Obama’s “jobs council” that never met and outsourced 10s of thousands of jobs to China in charge of GE Capital too?
Imelt ran the company into the ground, destroying a ton of investor value since he took over.
GE is a turd in the punch bowl.
I’dlike to see the letter before I jump on this. What are the stated reasons?
Trump needs to buy the dying New York Times first - or maybe not... I really like the 2nd Amendment Bank of America - what a great idea rktman.
GE Capital is the financial division of GE. It makes a wide variety of investments/loans with some of GE’s equity and profits (and a lot of money it also borrows from the financial markets) in order to generate additional profit/income for GE. The head of GE Capital reports to Immelt.
I’ve never had a problem with them.
Ge sold all the gatling gun business years ago.
Like a bank I heard about in Texas: “CCW holders welcome!”
Aren’t Walmart credit cards issued by GE Capital? Would they pull the rug out from under Walmart, too?
The O admin knows that gun control is not going to win legislatively, so, they resort to fascism to try and force the issue.
Apparently there is no longer any tipping point for Americans. We will sit back and watch our freedoms get washed away.
Recently purchased 2 items from Bud. Shipped the same day as ordered and arrived at local dealer in 2 days.
