I was looking into trading a gun for another gun(out of state) and started looking into possible ways to soften to blown with these taxes that the FFL is suppose to charge. Because after you find a good deal on a gun and have it sent to you here in washington, you end up pay more then the gun is worth after taxes. The only way I have found to soften the blow of taxes is to have the seller break down the gun and send me the nonregulated parts and send, in most cases just the frame, to the FFL. That way I am able to just pay taxes for the frame and not the whole gun. What do you guys think of this plan?
