    I've made up my mind. I'm buying the old British warhorse of 60 years with 135 rounds of ammo and accessories (including 20 stripper clips). I was wondering what kind of tax should I expect on this purchase? Maryland (where I live) has a $.05 tax, is that what I'll be paying?

    OK, I'll ask. What kind of "British warhorse", what condition, and what is the cost? I am also curious why the "tax" is an issue? Is it a retail purchase or a purchase from an individual? Not being from Maryland and not knowing the laws, but knowing Maryland is not the most gun friendly state in the union, I am not qualified to comment on a "tax".

    It's one of the Savage Enfield No. 4 Mk I*s in "good" condition from Impact Guns. Tax is just an issue because I've never ordered a firearm off the net before, and I wanted to know if it was weird and if I have enough money.

    Maryland taxes internet purchases? I didn't think that was legal yet unless the dealer you were buying from was in the same state you are.

    But then again, it is The Peoples Republic of Maryland.

    Maryland does not tax internet sales (yet).
    If you were buying from a shop in Md, yes the is a 5% sales tax.
    With the current special session in our state govt, internet tax may not be far off.

    If your getting taxed on internet out of state purchases before 2012 then your getting scammed.

    They are out of stock but accepting orders, so says the label.
    Assuming I can't get one from Impact Guns, where could I find a No.4 Enfield?
