No it is not. Sorry Garand Thumb. I did my $0.99 trial then kept it up for a few months. The only thing I ordered was a Dead Air muzzle device that was $15 cheaper and took 2 weeks to come in.

I don’t expect ammo. Even though they haven’t had anything except a battle pack of PMC 9mm over the past few months. I get it...I didn’t sign up for the ammo. I’ve built several AR’s this year and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

So I thought maybe the optics would be worth it. No, they are always out of stock. Can’t even get an EOTech or ACOG and they aren’t even that popular anymore.

I’m guessing that they network with other suppliers and don’t keep their own inventory?

I could be wrong but I expected better. Will be cancelling at the end of this month.

Has anyone else found them useful? My firearm budget is $10k / year so I thought it would be beneficial.

I did the .99 BDU trial too. Didn't find anything I wanted at a discount.

Another one I tried was Expert Voice. It's what you get when you look into Trijicon sponsored discounts.

Nope, either they didn't have what I wanted or what I wanted could be had cheaper elsewhere.

They do not have the in stock items like they had a year ago. A year ago it was worth it in my opinion. I bought 4 suppressors that were well under msrp and cheaper there then I could find elsewhere. Three were CGS.

Now, I’m in the same boat as you. I’m paying for shipping that has seem to take too long. Most is not in stock just like every other supplier online.

Ordered mags from BDU on Jan 10. Still haven’t shipped. All were “in stock”. Total BS.
Link Posted: 2/13/2021 12:08:19 PM EST
[#11]
Last three items I bought were “in stock” but after weeks did not ship out. They are pulling an optics planet on people.

Something tells me they have little to zero inventory and just take your money and then place an order with the vendor.

Also, I think they might be getting seconds on some items like RMR’s. I bought two from them and one from lanbo’s. The lanbo’s one is much better looking by a wide margin.

With that said, there are no signs the BDU RMR’s are fake but the housings look like hammered shit.

Dang, I must be the oddball because I’ve probably save md $100 in the past 3 months, definitely worth it to me! Actually it’s more than $100 because I save $50 on my RMR alone. Mags, Vickers parts, night sights and hearing protection recently and BDU has definitely paid off for me so far.

Glad I wasn’t the only one who thought it was way overhyped. Like you all I tried the .99 trial offer and was underwhelmed to say the least. Never bought anything on there because there wasn’t really anything to buy. To top it off the stuff I did see wasn’t any less expensive than other places. Ya... I won’t be subscribing...

I joined...

I ordered and paid for a rifle...

I waited about 3+ weeks.. nothing.

I called on week 4, very polite fella told it wouldn't be shipping for another week. I asked for refund, they processed refund within the next 2 hours.

Nice folks.. but... if you dont have it in stock to ship, you shouldn't sell it as "in stock" instead of admitting its a "pre order"

I had it for a few months. I got some things that made it worth it. Surefire lights and muzzle brakes were quite a few dollars cheaper. When I started in the night vision game I got a Dbal A3 hundreds of dollars cheaper then the cheapest price I could find anywhere else.
That being said their shipping blows and I’m still waiting for stuff I ordered over a month ago.

Yea they were worth it about a year ago when I first signed up, now not so much. I'll probably sign back up in a few years if the market ever returns to normal, assuming they're still around.

At the beginning of your post you introduced your thesis: that big daddy unlimited is not worth it.

You supported your thesis with three very specific complaints:

1 - the muzzle brake that had a minor discount and slow shipping.

2 - they only had a single battle pack in stock for the past month

3 - optics are always out of stock.


This leads you to the conclusion that;

"I’m guessing that they network with other suppliers and don’t keep their own inventory? "


Let's examine your complaints and conclusion to see if there is any legitimacy there.  All of your complaints have to do with inventory.  You complain that ammo and optics are out of stock, and that the muzzle device didn't have much of a discount and was slow to ship - things that are common with low inventory/high demand items.  These same complaints can be lodged against brownells, midway, psa, buds, and every other firearms manufacturer and vendor right now.

Thus, your conclusion that "I’m guessing that they network with other suppliers and don’t keep their own inventory?" is wrong.  A better conclusion it that they are suffering from the same backlogs that every other vendor on the face of the earth is dealing with right now.  Or, as I put it before:

Quoted:

Now, if I have missed something, by all means diagram out your original post to show how your complaints against BD are unique to them or not inventory related.

Or you can just deflect or ask big daddy to call you, whatever you need to do to save face.

They are local to me.   Nice enough guys, but I ain't paying $1 just so I can see what you carry and if it is worth the trip across town for me to go check things out.

Hell before the $1 charge their website sucked and the search was unworkable.

Got a great deal on Romeo 5.  3 weeks to ship.   Still waiting for a pistol to ship.  Been 25 days.  Willing to wait a few more weeks as it was killer deal.

On the other hand, PSA has similar prices on sale items and ships in a day.

Best experience of the Covid crisis was with Geissele.  Order Thursday at noon, had next day at 11:30.  Granted, I'm in PA, but WOW!

Expert voice is free though.  Some brands have better discounts than others, some stuff is never in stock. Vortex has pretty good deals IIRC.  I saved close to $200 over cheapest retail on my camp chef pellet grill.
