I've ordered from Bud's a few times with no problems, but actually ran into the same issue with my latest purchase. The price at Bud's jumped ~$50 in a few hours, between checking the price and returning to make the purchase. I ended up getting it from GrabAGun instead, for the same as Bud's original price.
(Are you teaching at Black River? I teach part time at NW ALETA - Juvenile Law, Firearms, MILO, Domestics.)
Yes, sir. I sure am at Black River full-time. Been here 11 years (Before that, Jonesboro PD 1996-2007; Walnut Ridge PD 1989-2007).
I attended DRE school at NW ALETA back in 07. I love NW Arkansas. I have a USMS buddy in Fayetteville right now who used to teach with us at Black River. He loves it up there and doesn't want to move back.
I enjoy it here at Black River. I do active shooter training, Constitutional law, DT, Off-duty threats, etc. Good gig.
Fate finally smiled on me today.
I received a reply email from Proven Outfitters. The M9A3 Black is in stock, it is ITALIAN, and it ships TODAY.
The total is $863, which makes it less with shipping than the Bud's LE price with free shipping after they raised it on me.
I've gotta learn some patience and read the fine print!
Does anyone who has noticed the Bud's price increases shop using some sort of "privacy" page on their browser?
I notice when shopping airline tickets, lodging, etc. the price will increase as I check it but not if I check the price anonymously.
Yes, Para does appreciate humor.
No, no, no. Let me tell you about a real idiot: Me.
I signed up for one of those credit card offers back in the day when they offered 0% interest for 12 months. I get the card and they had changed the number of months the card had 0% interest.
Well there was no way I was going to tolerate that. I called the credit card company and raised hell, told them I had saved the promotional info and would complain to state and federal agencies, etc.
When I’d finally run out of breath, the rep says “Most customers were happy to learn we’d extended the 0% promotion to 18 months, but if you insist on 12 months, that’s fine too.”
What? Uhh, never mind.

I sure don't know, rsbolo. I was on my private LE account when I carted the Beretta, so maybe?
My initial theory was that when Bud's gets down to 1-2 of the model, they up the price in a sort of "last minute price gouge."
HA! That's a great story!
