    So I know we dont know what I-594 really is yet and I know everybody probably scrambled to try and sell everything they wanted gone before I-594 went into effect. But is this what we have to look forward too? Seems like the rifles and handguns for sale have fallen off a cliff since Thursday.

    I noticed that too. I did see a thread about $10 transfers in SW WA so hopefully that helps keep the WA classifieds active.

    I noticed the lack of blue also. I never looked at just the Oregon ads as I liked looking at the pics too. I was thinking there should be people stepping up with a list of affordable places, that want your business, to do the transfers now. But so far?

    I'm done buying pistols, sadly. I'll buy long guns from elsewhere. Unless I just have to have one and then I'm going to just buy a frame. :)

    Maybe after the phrase, "includes $X.xx to ship to your FFL and you pay the transfer fees" becomes popular we'll see more "blue" ads ?

    I bought two 80% lowers just in spite. I feel like we should start throwing Lower-Finishing Parties.

    Did you see how they decided they are not going require the FFL's to collect the use tax(sales tax) on the transfers..... but it is still owed?

    They expect the seller to find the correct form, fill out the blanks, and mail a check... and they are requiring the FFL's to keep the records for 4 years for review and audit.

    35% penalty for overlooked tax payments. Interest accrues and compounds. They have solid records with the date and item and people involved. Signed by the recipient.

    This stinks to high heaven.

    I am self employed so I am used to paying use tax. It blows anyway you look at it.

    The government already makes more money off my labor than I do.

    If you only transfer the frame then use tax dwindles to nothing....

    I've heard that Washington gun owners were dumping their guns ahead of Dec 4th. Today I drove down every dead end road I could find. Didn't find a single dump for guns. Quite disappointing.

    There is no tax on "trades"... Just a hint for those of you seriously worried about this tax thing.
