I found a gun I want on Gunbroker and its used. I want to have it shipped in to my FFL. Do I get charged tax?

is it a purchase from a dealer? If so, yes, tax is due.

If it is coming from a private party, it is considered an occasional sale and it should be tax-exempt. But not all dealers know that.

IIRC there's a BOE letter about this that details the difference between dealer sales and private sales.
