I walked into my LGS today and was talking to my "dealer" and someone was leaving with a Saiga 12... so I asked how much they were these days and was supprised to find out that they were charging 1K!!!! Jezzzz!!! I told him he was WAY too proud of this guns, and he said the ATF is selling them for him!!! because of this study here: ATF Study The best price I could find online after 2hrs of looking was $630 and I would have to wait till March 1st to ship!! I wondered if this is even the same $399 gun that was on 'sale' to even move them over a year ago. What is going on here!!! I guess Plinking is not a reason to have sporting firearms On another note, I bought a FAL this week and was going to get it transfered to my dealer and he said they are getting hit hard to start charging sales tax on the SALE PRICE OF THE FIREARM!!! Even if its a used gun from a private party!! Even if they dident sell you the firearm, and even if there is no bill of sale, they are required to charge tax on 'fair market value' WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So now I have to pay $1300 for the gun $20 for the Transfer and $110 for TAX that has already been paid!!!! has anyone heard of this??? Does anyone else pay this!!! If my gun dealer is right, I hope everyone knows that If a Gun was sold and transfered 8 times it would be paid in full to the state JUST IN TAXES!!!!! (including transfer fees) Its hard to belive these people TAKE this much of EVERYTHING WE OWN and our state is this DEEP in the hole!!! so, because of my state's mismanaged budget they will start charging US the people MORE money?! I feel like They should all loose there jobs, If I get hired to do a job and I Eff it all up over and over again, then I should not be able to keep getting a paycheck! Im not happy after filling out my taxes this year and seeing what I made, Paid and OWE! I write my elected leaders (4-6 of them) once a month and get 1-2 replys. Out of those 1-2 replys maybe one will be a actual reply that has something to do with my question and not an auto letter telling me how we need to raise taxes to FIX the problem. I feel that Everyone(the 90% of people that dont care to write but think that simply voting for the person of thier party will make everything better) seems to be ok with this... To finnish this off, Has anyone know more about this ATF SHOTGUN STUDY? anyone hear of the tax thing for transfers? anyone have to actually pay this?
