Dave is right. due to the high FFL fees in California, most of the time its actually more expensive to buy the gun online than in California special ordering thru a dealer. for example, my hi point c9 cost $155 from a dealer in California. if i bought it online i could of got it for $115, but the extra FFL fee would of killed any savings I could of made. in fact, it would cost me $40 more.
sales tax only applies if you buy the gun thru the dealer from California. if you buy the gun outside and have it transferred thru a dealer, there is no tax.
it is true that California is trying to enforce some stupid law that makes you pay tax for everything you buy, regardless of where you bought it.
I'm not paying it, California has enough taxation, I'm not paying for more tax, they'll have to do my taxes for me and then come to my place to collect if they want it that bad, which would actually cost more than whatever i'm supposed to pay. (which is the whole point)
