Why would you have to pay a transfer fee, do they not have them in the store?

I have yet to find one in a store near me. I do have my name on a list at Gunmart.

The problem is that by the time you pay transfer fees it's not a good deal. :( 

 $35 for the "local" FFL and $0 Tax. $215 seems fairly good to me. If your local store had it in stock at the same price wouldn't it only be about $7 less?

The big question is do they shoot straight w/o any windage adjustment?

That would probably be negative.  But single actions have been around so long that just about everyone that's been around firearms, know how to adjust one out.

Sportsmen's Warehouse in Murfreesboro has them at $199.99. They gave me 10% off for proving that I was a veteran with my VA card.

Can't say much about quality comparison betwen Ruger and Heritage as I don't have the experience to talk about that.

I can say Heritages a lot better looking (my opinion) and more choices in style.

They also have more choices in size - 4 1/2 inch, 6 inch, and even a 16 inch. Plus MAG Cylinders for extra $30.  

Prices vary from $99 to $119, to ($139 or $169 for the dual cylinder). Depends on where you shop. Smky Mtn Gun & AMMO has a bunch in stock and marked down ($99 / $114 for some and think I saw $139 for one with the MAG included). They eben had one of the 16 inch (don't recall the price on it).  

I will go with the Heritage (looks, price, model choices, etc.) despite the fact I get some (I repeat some) keyholing out of my 4 1/2 inch 22LR Heritage (I don't have the MAG Cylinder, so shoot 22LR only). It seems to do better with lower velocity AMMO (less than 1150fps - discovered that one day when shooting with a friend looking at keyholes and switched to some 710 FPS and had no keyholes). Heritage said should shoot anything up to 1300 something). 

All in all - single six is jut sort of a fun (cowboy) thing the way I see it. Load and unload like the cowboys (except in movies when they just keep shooting).

The stupid safety on the heritage is the MAJOR downside.

Safety is not a big deal (For Me) and if you have it on and drop the gun, gun hits on it's hammer (No Problem).  And don't have to do the 19th century trick - Load one skip one then load four more (and only have 5 to shoot, I rather have 6). :-) 

Or, guess you can set hammer on the first latch point and hope if you drop it, it will not go off. 

For Me (defined) -- I just target shoot it, it's not a defense gun.

As is the crossbolt "safety" they started putting on all the new Marlin lever guns. Just plain lawyer dumb.

The safety was not a big deal to me either and I didn't use it until I dropped the gun and shot myself.  I make sure it is on now and I appreciate the option.

I've wondered what kind of pressure On Target and Gunmart were going to feel from Sportsmen's Warehouse opening so close to them. I guess we're going to see soon enough.

Lot of discussions about FFL Fees.

Another thing you have to consider is Sales Tax.

EXAMPLESs:

Buy in store, pay sales tax and background check. 

Buy online and ship FREE (generally). 

Maybe NO Sales Tax (depends). Will have FFL Fee and Background Check.

BTW, buy online from BUDS in KY and ship to BUDS in TN (No Sales tax and No FFL Fee, just background). However, I see BUDS Online price is often higher than in store.  

Background check regardless where you buy (store or online). So all there is to compare is Price and SALES TAX  VS FFL Fee - THEN DECIDE. 

Just have to add it all up. 

PS: Good deal around here (Sevierville, TN) is Smoky Mtn Gun & AMMO ($10 FFL Fee and $10 Background = $20 Total).  BUDS is $25 total.

Tax is a non-issue; there is no such thing as NO TAX. You are responsible for paying the state sales tax on your on-line purchases.

Like all other laws; ignorance of the law is not an excuse. Here is the link if you have questions…

Quote

 

https://revenue.support.tn.gov/hc/en-us/articles/203823799-Who-owes-the-consumer-use-tax-

If Tennessee sales tax is added to the purchase price, use tax is not owed. However, if merchandise is bought through the internet, over the telephone, from mail-order catalogs, etc., and sales tax is not added to the price, the purchaser is responsible for paying use tax directly to the Department of Revenue. Also, Tennessee residents who travel outside the state and purchase untaxed merchandise that is shipped to their homes in Tennessee are liable for use tax.

 

Will you get caught? Who knows. I got a tax bill from the state with penalties. Luckily the penalties were very minor; but it was a bill I wasn’t expecting. :)

That's good to know. It pays the tax.

I was going to post that GAG has these for $169.99, but it looks like they are easy to find a deal on most anywhere.

Anyone got hands on one of these yet?

A buddy of mine up in Indiana has bought 4 for himself, wife & 2 boys so far & claims that they shoot as well as his Single Six. Grips are interchangeable, so custom mods in that area are super simple. He says that only 1 of his 4 HASN'T shot to point of aim at 15yds, the one that's off shots a couple of inches high, but plumb center.

I still can't wait to get hold of one.

I have one but I got it to load shot shells for shooting Carpenter Bees, snakes, and rodents so I can't attest to bullet accuracy.

Sigh, unfortunately the government says no 😢

I'm stuck in an immigration limbo right now & according to the letter of the law, I can't complete a 4473 (long story, nothing sketchy, I just no longer have one of the required details)

The law says I may still buy & possess firearms, but the form itself disagrees!

To help a brother out I'd resell you mine. I've only shot a cylinder full of shot shells through it since I bought it on my birthday last August 21st. I can always get another one.

      Anyone dealt with Robertson Trading Post in Henderson?  I noticed on GOA, that they have several pistols I'm possibly interested in.  I might be up for a trip to Henderson to check them out.  Are they open to the public or doing online ordering only?  Are they good people to deal with?

      I wasn't planning on picking up a new gun "BUT" Walther just came out with the new Walther PPQ Q5 Match Steel Frame.  I sold my polymer PPQ and picked up the new steel frame.  It has been a long time since I really got excited about a new gun but I really like this gun.  It is a heavy gun at 2lbs 10oz with an empty magazine so it will be legal for SSP/ESP division in IDPA.  My main purpose for the gun is to shoot Carry Optics division and the weight limit is 45oz with an optic.  The optic I will use will be the C-more RTS2 6 MOA.  The gun does come with three mounting plates, not for the C-more.  Had to purchase one from C-more.  The grip is a little bit more aggressive than the polymer gun and I am very happy with that.  I hope to get out to the range soon and when I do I will do a range report.

      I just got an almost new Smith Wesson model cs9 in stainless steel and would like to buy a recoil guide for but I can't find any. I know the pistol was discontinued but surely there are some parts out there. Does anyone know of a good place to get old Smith parts? Thanks for your help.
