Maybe someone could enlighten my dim mind
The problem I run into paying sales tax on online buys is that I have to pay S & H AND tax. So in the end it's almost cheaper to buy locally then go online. That is the point of charging sales tax on online retailers, chilling the market for the benefit local sellers.

Most of the time I can get the items on the shopruger site for less at brownells or numrich. I got a nice set of stocks for my blackhawk from Jack First that ruger no longer makes for $30. shopruger.com has high prices to protect their retailers. It would be right stupid to cut your retailers throat.

Either way, bringing their business to a more gun friendly state like NC is not only good news for us NC residents but good news for the gun industry and like stated, we need more to follow suit.
