    I wish more would move here, it would help with some legislation the republicans are working on for one, it'd also create jobs here in my state too.. Would also be cool if it was closer like I said, the planned location is almost 4 hours away.. My in-laws are big Ruger ppl too, my wife's grandfather retired from Ruger

    I just ordered some mags from shopruger and they charge tax for AZ and CT orders.

    Does having a presence in NC mean tax for shopruger for people in NC?

    The key is which states the manufacturer has "nexus" with. Big huge 5 letter word in the tax world that means that any state they have a direct business connection or stake in has to charge sales tax on those products.

    I really fail to see how sales tax would deter me from buying online, especially from an in state company, if it helps keep a major gun manufacture in my state(who's escaping a gun grabbing state) I think I'm ok with that.in NC we pay sales tax on everything else anyway.

    :confused:

    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.
