I had been looking at SIR, they have a good price and then I save PST. What does shipping end up costing on a rifle? I also thought maybe I should hold the rifle first and see how it feels. Maybe I'll make it to Bass Pro.
Wherever you live, you pay the applicable tax for that province, not the tax from the point of sale No way around that one now.
It is costing me about $ 35.00 to get my rifle here. You could save about $ 7.50 by not using the C O D option. Remember I'm in Nova Scotia, your cost would be lower
In the past ordering from SIR and other mail order places from out of province I've never paid PST, only GST. I have always seen a thing saying HST will be added to certain provinces though. I may not entirely understand it but I'm not going to argue.
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
