Buying Firearms in Tennessee after Oct 1st
« on: August 14, 2019, 08:31:19 AM »
After October 1st, the state of Tennessee has past a law (probably about 2 AM in the morning when everyone was supposed to be asleep) so that they (the State) can collect 9.25% Sales Tax of firearms shipped in to registered FFL dealers. In other words if you order a rifle say from Buds Gun Shop in Lexington and then they ship it free to their shop in Sevierville, TN they can charge you 9.25% sales tax on any purchased that you make off the internet....so be aware....if you going to buy any more firearms, you need to do it before Oct 1st in Tennessee....

Yari - That's what I normally do it to buy a rifle in other states and have it shipped to my local FFL dealer where I pick it up. I will pay shipping but not that dreaded sales tax of 9.25%!!

The brick and mortar lobby has been trying to get a bill like this passed for years and years and now finally it passed and takes effect Oct 1st of this year.....

So I am thinking of getting a 300 AAC or 6.5 Grendel bolt action rifle from Bud's Gun Shop and they will ship it free and pay no sales tax....that all changes this Oct 1st, so I better get off my butt and do something....

Still Thinking about the 6.5 Grendel or the 300 AAC Blackout in a bolt action. Short range 200 yards and under...little recoil. Put one of my Vortex Crossfire II that is laying around on it....but which one do I get...there are Pros and Cons on both of the Calibers....need your input on this subject, have both Calibers in the AR15 style rifles but not as a bolt action....Ruger or Remington or CZ....

But got to do it by 10-1 of this year, that is when the new law goes into effect...ouch!!
