    OT - Bucks Gun Shop, Snohomish, WA

    Gang:

    This may be completely inappropriate and if so, please forgive me and moderators please delete.

    I have recently obtained my FFL license and am open for business in the Snohomish area. I would like to offer firearm sales and FFL transfers to the Open Carry crowd.

    You can find additional information at www.Bucks-Gun-Shop.com and can find me on Facebook.

    I look forward to finding you the best possible price on firearms that you are interested in purchasing, or in facilitating the transfer of a firearm that you have purchased or sold.

    Thanks.

    That's great, but did you know your store address is not actually found on your website?

    Your also not yet listed in Google Maps.

    Welcome to the area, nice to have another store nearby, but if you want people to show up, you got to give people a better clue than "between Snohomish and Monroe".

    Just sayin...

    Yes, but giving your own address on your own website does not.

    Hence, the afterthought of adding the fact that using Google Maps cant help.

    I heard it was very difficult if not almost impossible to get an FFL without a brick and mortar store these days. How hard was it for you?

    Joe - it is unbelievable the number of hoops that you have to jump through just to get an FFL and then all of the paper work that has to be filled out, and maintained is crushing. That said, it is a bit of a labor of love for me so I just put up with it.

    I look forward to helping some of you guys/gals out.

    Thanks for that info. I will give you first crack at my next firearm purchase but at the very least I will come to you for the transfer.

    The transfer fee on your website doesn't mention the new state use tax requirement.

    Also, did you ever consider adding Coonan Arms to your stable? That might be my next purchase.

    Probably didn't mention it because EVERY Dealer has to charge it and it's the same (with some small local exceptions).

    As for "Internet Only" stores, I'm still a "touch it, feel it, buy it, guy. No stock no sale to me. I buy ammo, parts, and reloading components online, not guns.

    I agree, however I have bought offline just because the deal was way to good to pass up. I got my Taurus mod 82 in damn near new condition for $185 including the shipping and transfer fee. I don't know of a retail store around that could touch that price.

    Gang:

    Didn't mention the tax because it is the same for everyone. Would be happy to put it on my site if you all feel that I am somehow trying to hide something. Safeway doesn't put sales tax down on their ad's either. It is just a fact of life. I hate it and suggest that everyone else that does not like it to complain to your representative. You don't have to pay tax on many other items that you buy online, so why firearms?

    I totally respect those that are touchy-feely types. I am actually that way myself. Just understand that you pay a premium for that. Not because the store is trying to mess you around, but because they have to pay overhead that I don't have to pay. Many times it is worth paying the extra so you can hold, feel, and see the firearm.

    I plan to do some of the WAC shows in the future so perhaps those of you that are the touchy-feely types can stop by and do your thing there.

    For those of you that want to save a little money and know what you want, please give me a chance to earn your business.

    Thanks.

    P.S. I have added a footnote indicating the sales tax requirement. Don't want anyone thinking that I am anything but 100% upfront. See http://www.bucks-gun-shop.com/FFL-Transfers.html

    Not to nit pick but aren't you required to collect tax on the entire cost including shipping? Your note makes it sound like just the price of the firearm. I only mention this because I would hate to see you get a bad name because people don't know the laws. Not all people will click that RCW link. Maybe word your footnote right from the law. Also I would have the note read that it is a use tax and not sales tax.

    That was the only reason I brought up the use tax. I wasn't trying to imply that you were hiding anything. It's just that some people don't know about the new enforcement efforts by the state (the tax has been around forever), and might get upset at you because thay haven't had to pay before.

    Because the State has a way to get YOU to collect it. It's still supposed to be paid on all those items that you buy online but unless the company selling it "has a presence" in Washington, they have no way to collect it other than voluntarily. Until they make UPS, FEDEX, or the USPS, "agents" to collect the sales tax they'll just have to wring their hands and whine. Because they have a hold over FFL's in the form of a Business License, they can put the arm on them to collect their SST. (Stupid Sales Tax).

    Now if everyone was a good, civic minded individual, and believed that the State wouldn't waste the extra money, they'd voluntarily remit the sales tax on all those purchases from Cheaper-Than-Dirt and such. Volunteers anyone?

    Oh, but you do. Use tax is levied on any internet purchase where the provider has a state presence, which you definitely do, brick-and-mortar shop or not. Guns and cars are the easy catch for the state due to the paperwork tracking requirements.

    It could be argued (correctly in my view) that you are only fulfilling a federally required service, and the transfer fee is the only part done by you and your state presence, and therefore that should be the only part taxed. Trying to get that logic by the money-hungry state is a different matter.

    Happiness is getting that antique Finn M-39 rifle delivered directly to your door without any sheckels to Gregoire.

    Ive heard stories of people getting weapons from out of state after a loved one has passed. And having to pay sales tax on them like they were buying it . Any truth to this
    I truly Love my Country, But the government scares the he!! out of me.

    DEMAND IT
    Congress SHALL NOT receive A salary greater than any service member and will be given EQUIVELANT insurance as any service member

    I came into this world kicking and screaming covered in someone else's blood. And if necessary to protect the Constitution of The United States of AMERICA. I will go out the same way

    All right gentlemen, I have added a note that the total purchase price includes freight/deliver and insurance charges. This language right out of the RCW. I prefer to not put the entire RCW in the footnote because only the legal eagles that prowl this forum can make heads or tails out of it. I prefer simple English.

    Every person who maintains in this state a place of business or a stock of goods, or engages in business activities within this state, shall obtain from the department a certificate of registration, and shall, at the time of making sales of tangible personal property, extended warranties, or sales of any service defined as a retail sale in RCW 82.04.050 (2)(a) or (3)(a), or making transfers of either possession or title, or both, of tangible personal property for use in this state, collect from the purchasers or transferees the tax imposed under this chapter. The tax to be collected under this section shall be in an amount equal to the purchase price multiplied by the rate in effect for the retail sales tax under RCW 82.08.020. (Emphasis added).

    NOW -- Would one of you meat heads actually contact me to purchase something!!!!!! ;-)

    I think it looks perfect now.

    I will be contacting you, don't hold your breath waiting, as soon as the finance minister releases funding.

    Yeah. I'd definitely want to do business with someone that refers to me as "meathead".

    Not trying to hijack this thread however, I have been wondering about this same thing. In the event of my untimely death I want to transfer my collection of firearms to a trustee/beneficiary who may not be leagaly permitted to recieve some of my collection (read NFA items).

    I have considered leaving instructions to destroy said items but cant bring myself to write them.

    How does one put this toghther without the associated pain?

    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
