Appleseed won't ship slings to NC???
« on: May 08, 2011, 05:36:45 PM »
I was trying to get a couple of slings for my first appleseed shoot on Memorial day weekend, and I got an email saying that they were going to have to refund my money because they can't ship the slings to NC.

Any idea what this is about? Any way I can pick these up at the actual shoot?

   It has to do with collecting sales tax required by NC - our volunteers running the store don't have the time/expertise to deal with sales tax collection requirements either in NC or CO.

    There are slings available - simply search the net - in fact, there's someplace on this forum where sources are listed, if you use the search function.

Two additional sources on this thread - http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=20799.0
"Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast and that the once-happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by a race of slaves.  Sad alternative!  But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?" - George Washington - from a letter to a close friend after the events of April 19, 1775

"There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our (the United States) overthrow.  Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter.  From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger.  I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing." - Daniel Webster, June 1, 1837
