The IRS Is Looking For 60 12-Gauge Pump Actions Guns To Arm Its Investigators
Feb. 3, 2010, 12:56 PM
Working for the IRS doesn't sound so wimpy anymore.
The IRS apparently has plans to buy 60 Remington Model 870 police 12 gauge pump action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Unit.
According to the federal business government website, these guns are serious.
The Remington parkerized shotguns come fully loaded with:
* A fourteen inch barrel
* Modified choke
* Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight
* XS4 Contour Bead front sight
* Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock
* Speedfeed ribbed black forend
We're not sure what kind of IRS duty requires this kind of combat artillery, but it sounds badass.

Will this have any effect on our “voluntary” income tax?
Because beating them into submission with your adding machine is no longer an option.
A well scoped 7mm mag should take care of this problem, some distance away.
Prolly headed to Las Vegas to pick up slot machine granmas.
THIS is serious:
And to really get the crap scared out of you, go to 4:30.
Against normal consumer arms, this is like an AK47 against muskets.
Only 60? Hell there are some preppers on here that have that many just for themsevles.
I knew Obama wanted to step up enforcement and collections, but isn’t this going too far?
“When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun”
Notice the misspelling of the word "too". :)
My oldest daughter’s best friend was a math whiz in high school and went on to pursue her accounting degree. She works for the IRS and participates in audits of businesses. She practices regularly at the shooting range and wears a gun and bulletproof vest to her appointments.
She’s not your old-school accountant. The IRS means business.
The country is in so much debt now, I guess they have to make sure we pay up. ;-)
And apocalypse. :))
I don’t blame her, alot of wackos out there. I’m thinking this is for the Capone types, can’t get ‘em for the real crime? nail ‘em for taxes.
Just adding to the existing inventory of shotguns....
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.

Just like Al Capone and any other capo sent his armed thugs to local businesses to take the ‘privilege of staying in business’ tax. Al Capone was arguably less crooked than a Nancy Pelosi!
Ask your daughter’s friend how she feels working for History’s most powerful criminal mob?
I use an 870 for deer hunting. It’s a reliable basic shotgun, and pretty much standard issue for most law enforcement.
I bought mine because the 870 comes in a left-hand version. So does my Model 700 30-06. I love handing it to friends and asking them to operate it. ;-)
more evidence to overturn Miller.
Maybe this is the agency where obama plans to establish his brownshirts...you never know.
Interesting that they didn’t need that kind of armament until Obama became took up residence in the Oval Office, and Pelosi, Reid, and Co. got control of Congress.
Didn’t they kill a guy at Ruby Ridge a few years back for selling one of these?
What does the IRS need with sawed-off shotguns?
Hmmm. Kinda makes you wonder about this whole “consent of the governed” thing.
These people have been watching too many video games.
“Speedfeed ribbed black forend”...ribbed for our pleasure.
notice the pic has nothing to do with the article.
The IRS has had shotguns for many years. They deal with some pretty rough customers and they have to stock up on marmament at times.
Just an area that you normally don’t see.
Maybe they won’t shoot you if you make less than $250,000 a year? Looks like Tax Masters and JK Harris have a whole new line of defense to prepare for.
I am glad they are shotguns, though.
Because at 200+ yards, they might as well be squirt guns.
Oh, and here's a totally random statistic: 60 new shotguns means about 1 shotgun per million armed taxpayers.
Does she wear a Second Chance hat over her Kevlar hair?
Well, it is yet another evidence that ‘the militia’ should be able to carry coach guns, scatterguns, blunderbusses and short barreled shot guns without special license.
Man, that thing is a major spelling fail. :)
EPA, IRS, and many other federal agencies have SWAT teams. Saw the EPA SWAT team in action in Amarillo back in the mid ‘90’s, raiding a waste disposal firm next to my daughter’s dentist. Flack jackets with “EPA SWAT” on the back. Company was supposedly illegally disposing of medical waste (never heard what became of that). Carried M-16’s or AR-15’s (didn’t get close enough to tell) and semi-auto sidearms. Remember Clinton’s 100,000 new police? These are some of them.
Two words: Castle Law
What the heck is that gas-piston driven, non-shotgun pictured with the article?
To think one of my childhood friends from Chicago once laughed at me when I asked if he knew any mobsters. He laughed so hard and said, “Do you think they walk around wearing signs?” Looking back, I'm beginning to think my naive question hit the mark more than was originally assessed.
I think this is the one.
Our overlords need the ability and firepower to murder us in front of or along with our families if we disagree with them.
I’m sure the government got a special deal on this purchase. They probably only paid $20,000 apiece for these guns. What does the model 870 retail for $1200 or $1300?
Now that we’ve had 10 years of real war, I’d hope some of the interest by loopy wargameboy police folks would be diminished by marking to reality, and thus we’d see less Waco SWAT, less Columbine SWAT, and less EPA SWAT such as you saw. Less SWAT break-ins into the wrong house, etc. etc.
12 guage pumpguns. Big Deal. The irs does go after some pretty shady folks. But think back, how often does the irs publicize what weapons they are buying? This story came out for a reason. Probably as a veiled threat or as a diverson story about some real hardware they are buying.
The IRS deals with the mob, probably gangs and money laundering operations. The perps are not small business operators but criminals who employ very violent people to protect their assets.
I do not have a problem with this at all.
