    Yea, that's definitely BS. Sales tax is only paid if the gun is purchased in that state.

    I finally bit the bullet and bought my long desired M&P9c. I waited too long and Buds took it off sale, but even so they were still cheaper than any of my local shops or any other online store I could find. I asked 2 of my local shops if they could/would match and they declined. I also tried to contact other online sites about lowering their price but nobody would or they did not reply. I even tried to contact Buds but $503 was as low as they would go. In the end I paid $503 for the gun, 3% credit card fee ($15), $6 shipping insurance and found a local FFL for $20. In the end I saved $35 over the cheapest local dealer. Had that dealer had one in stock maybe I would have bought from them anyway but they were not even sure how soon they could get one in, Buds has them in stock.

    If so, why does it say this on Bud's site?

    "You may choose Buds Gun Shop in Paris, KY as your FFL dealer. Buds Gun Shop retail store DOES NOT charge customers for transferring a firearm in the store. However, all in-store pick-ups will be subject to the 6% Kentucky state sales tax."

    Just wondering why they would bother putting up a notice if they were referring to guns they sold...

    They're saying that if you order from them and pick it up yourself, at their location in KY (instead of shipping it), you do not pay FFL fees but will pay sales tax.

    If you buy from Bud's (or any online dealer) and have the gun shipped out of state, you do not pay sales tax but will pay FFL fees to your local dealer.

    The site states that the Buds Retail Store and the website are two separate entities, but they are both located in the same state (KY). If the firearm is purchased on the website (where taxes are not charged) and picked up in the same state where that company (the website) conducts business, then sales tax must be charged.

    This is why you will often times see a list of states where online companies are based. If they have an office or business location in your state, then you must pay sales tax. If they are shipping to a state where they do not technically conduct business (read: do not have a physical presence) then no sales tax needs to be paid on the purchase.

    I picked up my M&P9c this morning from FFL. As soon as this repairman finishes fixing my dryer I'm heading to the range Going to start out with Winchester White Box for the break in then I will try out some different sd ammo. I will report back later with results/thoughts.

    Actually I work just north of I-70/25. I am up there 3 days a week so depending on your hours we might be able to work something out.

    This is a good topic. I've been really interested in this, too. I've gone to a few different gun shops within about an hour of my house as well as Cabela's. I had my (almost) 2 year old son with me and one of the shops told me to let him down and let him play. Their 4 year old daughter came out and the kids colored together and the mom watched the kids while I picked the owners brain about different guns for my wife and myself. He took as much time with me as he needed to to satisfy my curiosity and I decided there that I would do my best to buy exclusively from his shop. $999 isn't too much for a Glock 26 is it? It has night sights.

    Well, we might just have to try to work something out in the somewhat near future. I've been wanting to try one with the small backstrap.

    This sounds like an excellent shop and owner, except that price tag is outrageous. I want to say that you're joking, but for some reason I don't think you are. $999 is way too much for a G26, no matter what kind of sights it has on it. www.budsgunshop.com is always a good website to use as a guide (don't forget to add FFL fees with online price comparison).

    "Welcome to XYZ Gun Shop, where we dazzle you with fantastic customer service in the hopes you won't notice the price gauging we're giving you." Please tell me you're kidding and pretty please tell me you did not buy it. If you're not kidding, run as quickly away from that shop as fast as possible. No way anyone should pay that much for a Glock. Bud's had a Glock 26, with night sights for $582!

    Oops. Sorry guys. That was a joke. He wants $499. I should have said $2200 to make it more obvious. I don't have my CCW license yet so I'm going to buy it in the next day or so to hopefully have it before Christmas.
