Someone recommended this website to me, but when I go there I'm still lost about what you actually pay. They have these high prices listed, but when I get the quote it shows me a total, but then mentions a deposit, and then that I'm due to pay some fee to the FFL. I'm copy pasting one example that I looked up:

AUCTIONS ONLINE INC YOUR PRICE: $499.00

Fees: $19.95
Taxes: $29.94
Total: $548.89
GOG Deposit: ($145.60)
Due at Pickup: $403.29


So my question is...am I paying $499 and literally nothing more to buy this gun? Or am I paying that $548.89 price? There are too many things here that don't mesh well in my head, and I'm sure this makes sense to someone who's bought from there but I have not and it's confusing me. Can someone please explain this to me? Their website FAQ didn't really cover this and their descriptions still make me uneasy that I'll think I'm buying it for $499 and get there and pay $403.29 and then the fees and their deposit and end up paying $548.89 despite it telling me it's only $499. If that makes sense? Eh I'm just so :confused::confused::confused: about this.

The fees amount of $19.95 is the shipping charge to the dealer in your area. The sales tax of $29.94 is the local sales tax rate for the dealer in your area. That is included in the total price of $548.89 which is the actual total price you would pay for the gun. GOG deposit of $145.60 is the down payment required to process the order and ship this gun to your local dealer. $403.29 is the balance due to the dealer in your area that accepts the gun for delivery to you.

Hope this clears up any questions you asked. $499 is your real price but you have to pay sales tax for your local area and the shipping fee of $19.95 to get the gun to your local dealer.

Ahh, I get you. So the gun's "cost" is $499 but after fees and stuff the total is my actual out of pocket. Thanks, I get it now - it is a bit misleading the way they have "Your price" like that's the total cost. Should say that's the cost of the gun and then have the total at the bottom for the whole thing.

When you buy a car at the dealer, it's $13,995.




Plus tax, tags, title, dealer prep, processing fee, transportation fee, etc etc etc etc.




Say, would you like windshield wipers on that car? They are very popular now....

I understand everything about sales tax, etc. Except for the GoG deposit, is that something GoG pays that i don't have to reimburse when i go pick up?

I have purchased guns from GOG and you have to be careful you are reading the correct price. All the fees are listed and vary by the FFL in your area as some charge more and some less. In my area a couple of Pawn shops are usually the lowest but only by a couple of dollars. There is an FFL I like to use and he is worth the couple extra bucks. The deposit and balance at pick up is your actual out of pocket. GOG warranties their firearms above the mfg warranties so you are getting a bonus. If you ever have a problem with a firearm purchased from them call them 1st. The banner line is the price + fees + taxes. Their shipping is very fast and you will find special firearms made only for them.

Deposit is earnest money you put down. In order to order. Just as an example, say the gun is $500, with a $100 Deposit. You pay $100 when ordering. You pay the other $400 when picking up. Bear in mind that most dealers are going to charge for receiving the gun and transferring it to you.

For the most part im sure I'm reading the prices right i was only confused by a line that read (GoG deposit: $127.00), my common sense was missing and assumed that meant GoG paid a deposit for you, but i get it now. GoG gets the deposit, and the remaining total i pay at point of pick up, correct?

I buy from GOG frequently and have never had to pay any additional fees for transfer at any of the FFLs I've used

That is correct. All fees and taxes are included in the "Due at Pickup". If the dealer tries to charge you more than "Due at Pickup" report it to GOG and he will be chastised or removed.

internet tax?
so, they finally snuck it in, huh?
No it should be the tax at where you pick up the weapon. Depends on state

As a couple of guys have already said - there are no additional fees that your local FFL will (or should) charge you. You pay GoG the deposit and then the other amount due to your local FFL. This amount is an out the door price and includes any transfer fees. I have purchased from them several times and never had to pay any additional fees
