The IRS is buying shotguns.
 
Looks like we'd better pay those taxes! This was pretty interesting. I had no idea that the IRS had armed agents. Maybe they should be posted California to collect state taxes... :D

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.

Submit quotes including 11% Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax (FAET) and shipping to Washington DC.

I find it ironic that when selling guns to the IRS you must charge for the 11% FAET.

I remember watching something a few years ago where a business owner and wife failed to pay taxes timely and I guess ignored warnings or couldn't pay, don't recall exacts. They raided their house fully armed in the early morning. Young children present, the whole nine yards.

I don't know if the IRS ever DIDN'T have armed agents. Geeks with guns. *shudders*

Hey, Accountants and other number crunchers like guns too...

The IRS is no joke. Their authority rivals that of some Federal agencies and their reach is pretty impressive.

While I don't approve of their purchase, I am glad they chose those models. Mine holds more ammo. :D

The IRS agents with guns are not the same guys who do audits, thank goodness. I wonder if the ones who do SWAT type entries go around thumping the bean counters between the eyes?

Anyone else notice that the barrels are 14"? My barrel is longer....lol.

Only 60 shotguns? I think we buy that many new 870's every year. We have been upgrading our shotgun inventory for the last 5 years or so.
